Wonder if Chesterfield think that £80k is well spent at the moment
Some of the Conference figures are eye-opening; we spent less on agents fees than Barrow, Guiseley, Eastleigh, Halifax and Salford (plus a fair few others).
Our figure is low because of the very low number of signings this season.
Thanks @mooneyman, I understand how this all works.
Didn't we say not that long ago that we "wouldn't" spend any money on agents?
Interesting that Henry Newcombe is one of our six transactions. The club wouldn't have paid out if they didn't think he had a future. The others are Cowan-Hall, El-Abd, Stewart, Moore and Freeman.
In that period we signed some pretty high profile players. Tyson, Gape, CMS, AEA surely would of has agents. Plus loans for Eze etc and a new contract for Bayo. Money well spent
I see that Sunderland, who we could conceivably be playing next season, spent nearly £4.4 million!
And as a measure of how hard it will be to be competitive in the higher divisions, I see that League two team paid a collective £950,000 while League one teams paid £3.5 million and Championship clubs a breathtaking £42 million. Hats off to Millwall there, by the way, who are competing for the playoffs while spending 10-20% of most of their competitors and less than 5% of what Villa have spent. £5.5 million. On agents' fees alone. How can they afford it?!
Christ, look at Mansfield. I’m sure NONE of that cash mysteriously found its way into the since-departed Steve Evans’ hot little hands.
HCblue Villa still getting Premier League parachute payments , a roll of the dice to get back into the financial big time, which is why The Championship playoff final is the single biggest money game in world football .
