I disagree, negligence would be to chase the pack! The simple fact now is that there are 6-7 teams going for champions league football now (if Everton join the race) which means 4 teams are spending above their means in the short term (as CL money all goes to the bottom line) - Levy will not try to spend at the top table levels until we have a consistent revenue model to support it. Even then City and Chelsea are not spending with sense, they are outspending Utd in some instances with a fraction of their revenue. Something has to give. Our wage bill is far closer to the mid table budgets than to Utd, Arsenal and City. So with that in mind who do we buy without risking another Sissoko.
