Wow - don't ever go on Dragon's Den with that understanding of economics! They'll tear you to pieces.
If you sell a player for £50million and buy a replacement for £35million, you shouldn't expect your squad to be £35million better. That's insane logic.
Expand that, and spending £100million doesn't make you £100million worth of players better, if you also sold £65million worth.
He spent over 100m, so he must have thought he was getting value for money, but now he knows he got it very wrong.
