Sky Sports – Tough on Cookie
“In his spell in charge Coleman recouped more than £5million in transfer fees and spent just £650,000 bringing players to the club”.
I’ve read that sentence a few times now and really don’t understand what they base it on, or what they’re actually trying to say. They seem to be saying that he’s only spent £650,000 on players since he arrived. But at a quick count we spent money on the following players during his tenure:
So, they mean one of the following:
1) They’re talking about additional expenditure on top of the £5 million he recouped.. which basically means the list of players above cost £5.65 Million in total. Blows the argument that Coleman didn’t receive any money out of the water, doesn’t it.
or 2) that those 12 players cost £650,000 in total, which is just plain mental.
If I’m acting like a horrendous boob and have missed something obvious, someone please pipe up and enlighten me.
As far as I can see, they’re just making stuff up.
