Thread: Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    I'm hoping we bring in three or four players in the next few weeks. Will City spend a good amount or go for cheap options?

    I can't see Tan giving Neil a massive war chest. VT is not going to throw good money after bad, he probably feels he's given enough of his money to CCFC and no one could blame him.

    It's difficult to know what Tan gets out of the club now. Besides a drain on his finances.

    I suspect Vinnie will have a really good idea regarding Neils reputation and the improvement shown in the last few weeks, I think the budget will be surprising in a good way.

    Maybe he will have a bit more trust in Wornock though?

    We will sign two ineffectual forwards that won't receive any decent supply and they will go out through the revolving door withing 18 months.

    I can see us building in this window and adding to it in the summer to make a serious push for promotion next season.

    I'm hoping we bring in an
    Experienced pacey striker
    A winger with pace
    A centre back
    Centre midfielder
    Adding to the youngster we are already bringing in

    If you were in VT's boots would you throw more money away? As TBG muted what is Tan getting from CCFC?
    I'd love him to spend millions bringing in quality players but I can't see it happening.

    In which case why is he still here? There's no real profit to be made in being a Championship side, certainly nothing that would come close to recouping the losses he's already accrued here. For that reason he must either be planning on leaving the club or he's planning on getting back to the Premier League, where teams can make profits if the club is run properly (ie not like ours).

    Re: Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    Good question, why is he still here? I don't think it's for the love of the club seeing as he don't bother coming to the CCS anymore.
    Our chances of reaching the Prem any time soon are remote so VT leaving the club is the more likely scenario imho.

    I agree with you Eric he made some howlers to begin with which he never acknowledged, but what he did do was attempt to put it right . He also seems to have people he can trust upstairs now. I think MM has a lot to answer for regarding this . Lets wait and see but I reckon he will really go for it next season .

    They've been remote since we were relegated. Not at any stage has the club looked capable of getting back to the top flight. Finally we have a manager in place that knows what it takes to get there and can lay the foundations if he doesn't actually get us there. I think the club realise they've made poor appointments in terms of managers and, in turn, our transfer strategy has failed abysmally.

    The only promotion push would be from league 1

    I'm not allowed to discuss previous managers but we did threaten a play off spot not so long ago. Neil has a good track record so hopefully he can get us there one day.

    I think he's here to stay until we are a top ten premiership club and even then i don't believe he will sell..

    I agree Stan. The reason is that in the premiership he will be high profile and in the News every week, consequently his profile is enhanced , In the championship he is A.N.Other.

    Vinny's commitment is evidenced by Dalman's remarks about him being up till all hours with a mug of Horlicks in one hand and a transistor radio in the other pressed against an ear to listen to games. I'm confident he'll stretch an arm down the back of his settee if necessary to provide the funds required by Colin to purchase some top-notch acquisitions.

    I agree, he hasn't become what he is by being a quitter that's for sure. I think we will be in a good place by the end of the season.If Neil can get us settled down by then we will be ok.

    Re: Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    So far, the club have tried to stay within the financial fair play regulations and, if that remains the case, the only way we'll be "splashing the cash" in the coming window is if we receive millions for players leaving during January. The regulations have been relaxed yet again in a way that almost encourages clubs to break them in the hope they can get promoted in the three year period they are now allowed and it would be pretty typical of the ham fisted way in which the club has been run since we got promoted if, having, essentially, used the parachute payments to try to balance the books, we now started spending heavily again just as they were running out.

    Brighton's accounts for 15/16 were recently released and showed that they have lost a total of £36 million since May 2014, so a loss of £3 million in their 16/17 accounts would see them breaking the rules, but their likely promotion means that they will probably consider that a price well worth paying. So, there is massive scope for City to spend big if they were that way inclined, but everything we've seen from the club since Russell Slade was appointed says it won't be happening - our current manager has also talked about the importance of staying within budget as well.

    We need to start discovering the knack of buying players that can be sold for more than we paid for them and if we can do that, we may then be in a position where we could build a squad that might challenge for promotion while staying within the FFP regulations,

    Surely Neil is the guy to find those sort of players Bob?

    If we can get Hoillet to sign a longer contract, he will have signed one and if Zohore was to maintain the form he's shown recently for a few months, he would be someone who Warnock will have improved to the extent that he might fall into that category. However, when I think of "typical" Neil Warnock type signings it's more experienced players with little sell on value (e.g. Paddy Kenny, Shaun Derry and Clint Hill) as opposed to younger ones on their way up - maybe others can come up with some, but I'm struggling to think of many cheapish Warnock signings that have gone on to be sold for millions more than he paid for them.

    I do not feel we are in one of the same places we have been with Tan previously. Not to say that he will put in millions again but hopefully we're closer to where we were in Malky's first season: there is some money to be spent but it must be spent wisely.

    In all fairness I have my doubts that funds were ever released to be spent in any other way than wisely.

    I would be amazed if anything but the bare minimum for survival is spent this month.

    Why would he?

    Re: Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    If I was Tan I don't feel I would want to pump any funds Into the club after us basically telling him to piss off. I don't see as spending to have another crack at the playoffs as best value back for the club.

    I say that, however he did convert his debt to equity. I for one would welcome the megalomaniac back with open arms. That promotion season was the most enjoyable season I've watched in my minuscule time watching us.

    I don't see the point splashing the cash unless some real value players come along for long term replacements. I would look to a goalkeeper and a centre midfielder for Whitts

    Re: Will Cardiff splash the cash?

    Warnock is an experienced manager and that experience has taught him that there is no point buying cheap youngsters in the hope they will turn into expensive sales. Why would any manager bother given that a run of bad form means they could be out of a job in a matter of weeks. No wonder Warnock opts for experience over potential.

    Tan trying to somehow get his money back - not sure whatever happened to the parachute payments - but pretty sure he couldnt take that money . You cant blame Tan for wanting a return on his investment - no matter how long it takes. I think he realises now though - that it's not just a case of adding more money - it's the way the club is run, the financial controls etc. I still believe Tan wants the kudos of having a premier league club

    I think we'll see 1-2 coming in with reasonable fees, maybe a total of £2-3m spent and 2-3 frees or loans, with a emphasis on experience, physicality and pace
