How am I "flip flopping"? I've other members telling me I'm repeating myself I'm not making up wage percentages, I am asking you what you believe to be an acceptable % of our turn over? Your not happy with it being 45-50%, so do tell me what is acceptable? The problems also started prior to Ed, so singling him out is also naive. And if he doesn't "authorize" spending? He is also beaten with the "over ruling" or "not supporting" his manager stick. Supports the "football men" and blamed for lack of structure. How in the blue hell are folks not understanding this... Both demands cannot be met! It's actually impossible, like it cannot be done! I mention Jose cause he has been here for almost half of his tenure as CEO, he is also responsible for expensive transfer fees and the signing of Sanchez and the renewal of player contracts. I mention Jose cause there are distinct examples like Fellaini. Whom almost all our supporters believe is average and never signed at all, but Jose demanded he be kept, Jose stated that he needed him. A repeated complaint often thrown at Ed is the renewal of Jones, Smalling & Young's contracts. Considering Jose picked Jones & Smalling over his own investments, isn't entirely plausible that he requested they both be kept? He also favored Young over Shaw, the latter routinely received public dressing downs from Jose. So that's 4 average players Jose most likely favored and requested be kept and rewarded with new deals. I've genuinely lost count here asking this.. but if Ed is supporting his manager and keeping these players, how on earth is it Ed's fault for following the instruction of a "football man" like Jose?
