Well that is up to you of course but if the club were spending that type of money, then we would be successful left, right and centre shame that you would wish to miss it.I mean doing it the wrong way. I think there needs to be a complete overhaul in world football where a salary cap is put in place. I know that won't happen, but if Spurs become a City and just purchase £80m players left, right, and center than I am out.
I want us to become a BD type of club
Well, for starters Dortmund's season tickets are less than half the price, and they have a professional backroom operation willing to regularly do business for key players at fair prices without dick-measuring psychodrama.
But the reality is, what you actually want is to be in a league where we're only looking upward at one team. That's simply not the reality in England. Were ENIC's Spurs in the Bundesliga they'd have a flush trophy cabinet.
At the top of English football at this moment in time you're either making a mockery of financial controls or you're a mug and a permanent loser, period, end of story.
There is no third choice and the time for choosing for ENIC has arrived. They will either have a more robust cash flow or a less valuable asset, the paths have diverged. This is no longer the business Daniel Levy got into.
Liverpool haven't been cash cows in many respects.
I think Levy and Enic did a great job until they got too desperate for trophies under Poch's regime. Clubs like Spurs and BD have to sell their best players to develop new talent, we can not and should not keep players like Rose and Eriksen until and beyond the point where they sour and cost us morale and money.
AA lot of people dislike them for not spending enough. In my opinion an equally great, or greater, failing was to not sell players at the right time (and subsequently reinvesting, of course).
I think a lot of people have pointed out the sea change in strategy from ENIC that a lot of others try to ignore. ENIC showed ambition when they didn't sell Rose, Eriksen, Toby, Kane, etc. They gave Poch the chance to push on with the squad. The reality is we just don't have the cash to pay the wages to keep top internationals like that happy and invest over a billion pounds in the stadium and training ground infrastructure and spend hundreds of millions more on transfer fees.An interesting perspective (and your subsequent explanation makes sense).... But in contrast to the "unnacceptable lack of ambitions" rants of others; it's a compelling twist.
Keep being you, fella!

We rolled the dice that Poch and Co. could win something with this squad, and allowed hundreds of millions in transfer fee value depreciate to keep it together. And then we came up short.
Some people completely ignore that. It costs money to hold in to assets as well. And now we're gonna have a very hard road forward, because there's not much of serious value left in the squad to start rebuilding with.
