Anyone know what those spend figures are based on?! £33m sounds like a hell of a lot of money for the Bees. Are they like for like measures? Sounds wrong to me.

well they certainly are not net expenditure so all seems a bit of a pointless “stat”

We did spend about that much...but also earned more than that through player sales the yesr before (Maupay £20m, Konsa £12m, Mepham £12m, Woods £5.5m-ish. Sawyers £4m-ish). So that wasn't just owner outlay...

It’s probably about right for gross spend over quite a few years. It is completely wrong as net spend after our huge profit on player sales in the climb to the PL.

But over that same period Watford will surely have spent more than us. No?
