Cost of our squad - £180m?

Very bored waiting for Amazon to arrive so I decided to try and figure out how much we have spent on this squad. I have mainly used Sky Sports figures so no doubt they are inflated (sources for other fees quoted) but even if it is overstated by £20m it is an incredible figure. Sure I will get lots of abuse about the accuracy of the figures but its only a rough estimate.

Julián Speroni £0.75m
Wayne Hennessey £3m
Goalkeeper - £3.75m

Joel Ward £0.4m
Patrick van Aanholt £14m (including add-ons)
Jeffrey Schlupp £12.5m
Pape Souare £3.45m (Guardian)
Martin Kelly £1.5m (Daily Mail)
James Tomkins £10m
Scott Dann £1.5m (exlcuding add-ons, which included survival payments)
Mamadou Sakho £26m (The Mirror)
Timothy Fosu-Mensah - Loan
Damien Delaney - Free
Jaïro Riedewald £8m (Independent)
Defenders - £77.35m

Luka Milivojević £13m (Independent)
Yohan Cabaye £10m
Ruben Loftus-Cheek - Loan
James McArthur £7m
Jordon Mutch £5.8m
Jason Puncheon £1.75m
Andros Townsend £13m
Wilfried Zaha £6m (Daily Mail)
Lee Chung-yong £1m (Daily Mail)
Sullay Kaikai - Youth
Bakary Sako - Free
Midfielders - £57.55m

Christian Benteke £32m
Connor Wickham £9.5m (Daily Mirror, including add-ons)
Forwards - 41.5m

TOTAL £180.15m

Exactly. Not one of those has increased in value I'd guess. Townsend maybe because of the market. A shameful legacy of our transfer/recruitment policy

The only player that will have enhanced his value is Wilf.

I would be surprised if Townsend's value has gone up this season. His best game, ironically was at RWB where he looked far more dangerous. Ever since he has flattered to deceive and I don't doubt he has been trying but he has become very ineffective. So if value was based on trying, then maybe, but if it's based on effectiveness and impact then I would say he has dropped in value. I had hoped when Roy arrived he would get a lift in his form but it's not been the case.

So probably needs to go somewhere they will play him as RWB ;-^)

Overpriced squad with underperforming big name players.

If only we had a decent scouting network

Been saying this for ages, the latter of course. We must be wrong however and the aforementioned is correct.

TBH we might already have one but it's not just the scouting/identification it's the buying decisions in the context of squad management that is key. I.e. The whole thing has to gel.

You look at the 55 odd million we spent on Benteke and Sahko and wonder if maybe the money could have been spent better building a squad of players - like Watford, West Brom, Burnley, etc do.

It depends if you see Reidewald and Schlupp as defenders.

Plus loan and signing on fees.

Sickening amount of money, whether you compare it to other clubs or not. No wonder we've lost our way and the mentality from the stands has gone, it just doesnt suit our DNA. We're no longer cheering for that underdog fighting spirit team but a £180m team that none of us really feel connected to, and who ironically are a LOT worse than our '2 bob championship' squad that got and kept us there.

Go down, rebuild and go back to the (winning) basics and stay with it.

I mildly disagree with this, I would rather spend on big players who significantly improve the first eleven, than a bunch of squad players a la when we first came up. Obviously it's not going so well at the moment, but class being permanent and form being temporary; it could yet turn out ok this season.

On the flip side though, having a tight-knit squad who fight and die together is what got us up in the first place.

I dunno, just need to f'k over Newcastle on the 21st...

Exactly where we have got it so wrong. Bring in players like Benteke, Sakho and Sako on huge wages has caused discontent in the dressing room and destroyed team spirit. We should never have been in for this type of players but built a decent squad that could withstand injuries. Look at the team we had out yesterday and you can see how it has all gone so wrong.
