Five years spending comparison

Duff - £17m

Johnson - £6m

Veron - £15m

Mutu - £16m

Crespo - £17m

Parker - £10m

SWeeP - £21m

Ferreira - £13m

At least you can't accuse us of wasting money. Oh!

(for the record, I rate some of the above quite highly, but they've no where near come close to earning their transfer value at Chelsea)

But on the plus side, our other big (£10m+) transfers - Essien, Drogba, Makalele and Carvalho - have been pretty awesome.

We've spent alot of cash (too much if you ask me) but I wouldn't be at all surprised it we have bought the same amount of players as some of the other teams.

If ManU would have bought Essien or Sweepy, would they have spent the same amount of money as we did? 317.gif

Anyway, we've done some bad deals. Veron, Sweepy etc.

Johnson for £6m wasn't that bad. Too bad he didn't become the great defender many thought he would.

One signing I think is good and bad is Crespo. He was good and had he stayed with us he would have scored alot of goals. But he had to leave and I was sad to see him go. I still respect him for doing his best even though he wanted to leave. That's how a professional behaves.

Mutu was another signing that might have turned out good but due to some bad choices from said player it didn't turn out so well. He was good at Juventus though and he's been great at Fiorentina.

And I still think Chelsea behaved like total a*ses in the Mutu/Juventus deal. nono.gif

Its funny when people suggest that Mourinho was poor in the transfer market and Ranieri was good. Sure Ranieri built a good side (a great side even), but damn he spent (and wasted) money in the process.

Our VFM from signings is not great.

Lots of money wasted on people that played for others while we paid their wages...for example.

The club still needs some sorting.

When Mourinho came in, he sorted most of that out and shipped out alot of the deadwood leaving a more efficient team (yes there were still big signings, but these players were played regually and generally earnt their keep).

It started to turn again however when we bought Boularouz, Ballack and Shevchenko. Suddenly we had dead wood on our books again, whether that be because the player was crap or simply not part of the managers plans (eg. Ballack out of CL squad).

Of course, sometimes dead wood can be revived and brought new again as some (but obviously not all) would argue in the Ballack and Shevchenko cases.

It will be interesting to see how much dead wood (if any) we accumulate under Grant's reign.

PS. I consider dead wood to be players whose not contributing to the team and whose wages make a sale to another team prohibitative. Crespo, Veron, Boularouz and Ballack are all examples of players that were rightly or wrongly considered dead wood at one point or another.

I dont think those stats are correct. Man U's, Liverpool and Arsenal's spending was much higher.

Man United transfers 2004

Rooney > 18.5 Million Cash, Total 31 Million

Saha > 12.8 Million

Smith > 7 Million

Heinze > 7 Million

Thats a minimum of 45.3 Million in spending in 2004 alone. 57.8 Million if you count the total transfer fee (Which has now been paid)

45.3 Million (Minimum) or 16.15 Million like that table? Guess they forgot about buying Rooney somewhere along the road

Man United 2006

Carrick > 18.6 Million

Vidic > 7 Million

Evra > 5.5 Million

Funny, this year it says they spent 7 Million. Guess Carrick and Evra are figments of our imagination.

Liverpool transfers 2006

Kuyt > 9 Million

Pennant > 7 million

Bellamy > 6 Million

Agerr > 5.8 Million

Paletta > 2 Million

Around 30 Million in spending in 2006. Strange that here it says they only spent 1.85??? W A N K E R S (damn post censor) 247.gif

Real stats are

Since 1999 Arse have spent £145.3m

Since 1999 LPool have spent £255.1m

Since 1999 Manu have spent £265.1m

Since 1999 Chelsea have spent £414.1m

Arse recouping £125.8m

LPool recouping £110.4m

Manu recouping £117.2m

Chelsea recouping £127.2m

Arse with a net spend of £19.5m

LPool with a net spend of £144.7m

Manu with a net spend of £147.9m

Chelsea with a net spend of £286.9m

the total cost of Arses players currently playing first team football is £60m

the total cost of LPool players currently playing first team football is £122m

the total cost of Manu players currently playing first team football is £164.1m

the total cost of C'sea players currently playing first team football is £221.6m

(However we can subtract 16M off our value for what we paid for Mikel, which we will be getting back sooner or later. That leaves us with around 40M difference in the cost of our first team squad)

So if anyone tells you Chelsea bought the premiership, you can tell them the going rate is 40M.

Yeah, nice one Kev, I thought those figures looked too low, as I remember Radnapp saying how much Fat Rafa had spent before the Luton game on Sunday, and it was well above 100 mill.

Still, our record really is quite embarrassing. Stupd amount of money wasted. icon_eek.gif

Speaking of Fat ***in Rafa, here's an interesting statistic for you.

Benitez's says the reason for spending so much is he's starting from a lower base. This means he'd have to outspend Utd for some time to catch them
However this is not quite correct. Benitez took over a squad capable of winning the CL and he's out spent every team since then (bar Chelsea) some £126.8m

And of the so called "big 4" he's got the worse net spend spending £20m more than Manu, £40m more than Chelsea and an incredible £80m more than Arsenal

(Since Benitez joined Liverpool)

Arse have a net spend of £5.4m PLUS

Chelsea with a net spend of £46.5m

Manu with a net spend of £66.1m

LPool with a net spend of £85.1m

His go to best starting 11 is

Reina

Finnan Carra Hyypia Riise

Penannt Gerrard Alonso Kewell

Torres Kuyt

7 of those were in that CL final so whats he been doing since?

£126.8m spent on the above players?

Reina £6m

Finnan zero

Carra zero

Hyypia zero

Riise zero

Penannt £6.7m

Gerrard zero

Alonso £10.7m

Kewell zero

Torres £20m

Kuyt £10m

£53.4m there, £76m gone where? Journeyman squad players!

He could of bought 5 quality players with that sum, so he HAS out spent them and still fallen behind.

So much for having Mourinho's money and doing more with it. U fat f*ck

Kev, I LOVE those stats, thank you. I will spend the rest of the day memorising them, so I can p*ss off the many many London Reds as and when I see them.

There's nothing like being smug and factually correct when laughing at a 'Scouser.'

Heard a scouser on the radio the other day saying Rafa would easily win the league if he was given a blank cheque book like Jose had. w**k2.gif

The stats prove he's had more.

Lucky to win CL and lucky to win FA cup both on pens having come from behind very late(we of course know they were very,very lucky to make both finals in the first place).

Never even been in the title race.

I for one hope Rafa stays at Anfield because he's sh*t.

So we've actually made money over the past 2 years on transfers 300.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

Well we certainly did last summer given how much we sold Robben for versus Malouda coming in but I'm not sure how they've managed to get us spending less than we sold for the previous summer.

It would be interesting to see the stats since the start of the PL or for say the last 15-20 years

Man Utd to win hands down and if another check of the stats was done for the 70's the scousers would win hands down. Every title won has been bought in some shape or fashion, the only difference is the amount spent.

Thats because the stats are bullsh*t. Seriously this guy cant even perform simple addition. And its being circulated around loads of sites now. Its a complete joke

I'd actually like to see a variation of this type of check. Instead of looking at the amount spent they should look at the amount of actual players signed and sold (surely they couldn't fack that up). My guess is the scousers may have brought in more players than most (taking Harry Redknapp out of the equation) over the same period this chart refers to.
