So what are you arguing against? Literally you responded to me pointing out to Cruyff that the money they spent was generated from sales UNLIKE City/United/Arsenal. That was it. Are you denying that? If not, who are you arguing against?
I do think nett spend is overused and often pointless stat used in football discussion.
Doesn't factor in the value of the squad before, the value of the squad after, free agent signing, wages, agent fees, youth trading, contractual situation, transfer add-ons etc.
If you were going to do a proper assessment of a clubs player trading you'd have to factor all of those things in as well as the headline transfer prices.
