Again you’re cherry picking, Mowbray has been with us 4+ seasons - Leeds have spent well over £40m in that time, we’re not even close EA.

Because thanks to Mowbray taking us down we had to spend a year in the third tier, where Mowbray had a budget that blew the whole division out of the water but could still only muster second place. I am going of the time that Mowbray has spent in the second tier. 

Also why do you continue to ignore the points about net spend Leeds only spend that money because they sold Wood for £15 Million, Cook for £6 Million, Roofe for £5 Million, Viera for £6 Million, Jansson for £5 Million, Clarke for £10 Million. Mowbray since he has has been manager (including in League 1)  has spent getting on for £19 Million and has only sold Raya for £3 Million and Steele for £500K.

It doesn't take a genius to work out how Mowbray could increase his transfer budget you simply do what the likes Leeds, Brentford etc do which is to cash in on their high value players and reinvest in the squad. Mowbray is very luck in that he gets to keep the likes of Nyambe, Dack, Travis and Armstrong and he is also given funds to add to the squad as well. There aren't many managers in this division who are able to do that.

Established Championship club ✅ Recent history of Premier League football ✅ Squad packed with quality, including 2nd highest scorer in the league and a returning Dack ✅ No forced sales

Alex Neil -  Young manager sourced by Norwich from Hamilton - Takes them up via play offs beating their hated rivals along the way.  Can't stay up but then gets sacked when they are 8th in the Champ.

With Mark Hughes it boils down to how eager he is to return to management and repair his damaged reputation or if he is happy to relax and wait for something to come along that genuinely excites him.

Leeds spent much more than that, you are cherry picking again. 

But....

If Mowbray sold Armstrong for £30m and reinvested that £30m in players, would you argue he’d spent net zero? Had nothing to spend? Or sack him he’s wasted a fortune?

Correction.....mainly the same players bar the keeper. Nymabe, Lenihan, Wharton and Williams were all here.

Wharton would have been playing for the under 16's then I suppose. Only Williams was an experienced regular player. I've tried to block out the memories of the dross that was pulling on the shirt in Coyle's time here.

If TM could sell AA for £30M I'd show my arse on the Town Hall steps. 

My dad said that in 1990 when I told him we'd tried to sign Gary Lineker - 😃

But yes DeeCee, its hypothetical.....

Well he would have spent net zero wouldn't he. I don't need to argue it that would be a simple fact.

Didn't Coyle give Wharton his first team debut. I'm almost certain that he played in a draw at home to Burton as well as scoring in a league cup game.

I see there is a locally based nut job suddenly available for the (yet to be vacated)TM role who would take a very different approach with our players..

Yep...but it might be an opportunity to suit all three parties?

How much would you except for Mulgrew ?

Michael Appleton is doing a really good job with Lincoln. Remember he was here in a short period of time and was a up and coming manager that has done well with Lincoln.

Appleton wasn't here long enough for us to see what he could do.

Neither was Berg.

I struggled with Berg, but I really liked Appleton. He was a blunt instrument and seemed to be getting a lot more effort out of those players. Needed longer to see it translate into results.
