Re: Mulhern and Bell
I disagree. We can buy the finished articles as we have the wage budget (we are told) to do so. However, the choice of the manager is to find young talent and develop it into something better. Jim wants players who can improve beyond the current level and so only buys them now. When he first arrived he bought a few older heads to steady the ship, but now he only chooses early 20s with potential. If it works, we get promoted, keep the nucleus of the team and make a transfer profit as we did in the late 2000s. If it doesn't work you end up with a conveyor belt of players leaving either for small fees upwards or to obscurity downwards.
We are currently in the latter position and need to get to the former.
