    Yeah, it's exciting/will look incredibly irresponsible in a few years.

    Swansea spending 12m on a player is weird (not so much for Southampton though since they're loaded IIRC, and spent a similar amount on Ramirez).

    Swansea are in Europe next season though. 12m on one player isn't that weird.

    Yeah he didn't want to fight for a place so no loss IMO.

    I doubt it has much to do with Europe and more to do with the fact the team that finishes bottom will make the same as United did winning the league last season.

    The new TV deal is insane.

    The Europa League though! It's hardly the path to bags of money. It's the new TV deal that's bumped up spending, and as far as Swansea go I wouldn't be surprised if Laudrup is quite a big factor in attracting guys like Bony.

    Its the reason Fernandez had his pants taken down twice last season.

    I'll never forget the shot of him after QPR were relegated. Looked like he'd seen a ghost.

    You got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to pay 100k a week for Chris Samba.

    Celtic are in Europe next season. Southampton aren't. One team's buying the other's standout midfielder for 12.5 million.
    It's the Premiership telly money.

    Ah ok, didn't know the about the TV deal.

    Maybe it's because 12m doesn't seem that much to me anyway for a team like Swansea, who won a trophy and finished in the top half. Didn't QPR spend around that much on Samba alone?

    Bony will do very well for Swansea.
    Not sure how he'll work with Michu though. I guess Michu will play behind him back to his CAM role, just seems a waste as he's quite clearly a very clinical striker.

    They will form an immense partnership known as Bony M

    Norwich could be fun to watch next season. Making some impressive signings, and are supposedly in for Alderweireld and Quagliarella (!) too.

    If Liverpool manage to get rid of Suarez, I can see them splurge their cash on Michu. Although we know how that worked out last time :$

    40mil for Michu.
    They'd pay that.

    Yeah, let's be avin' you and you and you!

    It looks like they want to cement their status which is a good thing; it's how so many new signings gel. G/l

    Real have just signed Illarramendi for 38m. Already signed Isco for a similar price. FFP FTW.

    FFP can't do squat when you're brankrolled by an entire (albiet broke) country.

    As stated in the arsenal group, will be interesting as to what will happen to one of Khedira or Alonso. Surely one must be sacrificed.

    Hoping it's Khedira, so we can start to negotiate a contract for him and obviously sign him up in 2016.

    FFP is based in revenue. Madrid have the highest revenue of any club in the world.

    FFP is about clubs like Pompey, not Madrid.

    And Khedira would cost too much.

    Are United fans really that shocked about Rooney? He left us early cos of the money. Do you guys actually pay attention to anything that happens outside of Old Trafford?

    He's awesome imo. I know he divides opinion but his record speaks for itself (Brain/Jamie/Gary)
