Depends on where we find ourselves in january.

If we are in with a big chance of staying up (i.e 5 points clear of the relegation zone) then I'm sure that SJ will guive Dowie suficient funds to kep us in the division.

However if we are rooted to the bottom, 8 points adrift, we wil more than likely accept relegation and spent no more. What would be the point if relegation was almost a formality?

agree completely. birmingham are a good example of the first option. they were a few points clear in their 1st season and bought some new faces in, and look where they finished that season

when dowie signed his contract he wanted assurances from sj about investment, what he planned to do with the club etc. i honestly think that we'll be given a solid amount of funds no matter where we are - i can really see big moves for good division one players, like ashton, reid etc.

i can't see us not spending when dowie asked for assurances before he signed.

id be surprised and pleased if we spent 7 to 10 mill
(if you mean purely for transfer fees and not including wages etc)

ID will save all his budget for the summer if relegation looks inevitable in January. If we are in a position where survival is possible, he will be given some money, but no need to go silly.

It's not about the amount but who you bring in, that's what counts as we've seen from our own recent history.

ID recently said that he rather see SJ spend on the club infastructure than on a large transfer kitty. So, I guess he isn't after significant sums.

I think the biggest gamble for Jordan is finding the very very fine line between spending money to stay up and failing, and spending as little as possible and succeeding - on that basis how much can he afford?
