This financial stat has been used by all sides,(so called "happy clappers and cynics and inbetweeners) to support the view that we are shite,over achieving,par for the course and whatever arguement comes inbetween each view.If you accept that 6th highest wages or spending means nowadays we probably should finish 6th or if you believe we should be finishing top4 challenging for the title regardless of money,then here is a nice video on spurs finances. Personally I believe what you spend is relative to your position to an extent,& not AN EXCUSE for not having a run at the title or being top 4-But if we do like last year (finish 3rd) I feel that we have exceeded where we probably should finish,not that I ever start a season aiming for 6th. However,I do feel it is harsh if sackings are being called for,for merely finishing 6th,after all that is the resources being given to the manager vs our peers. The continued dominace of money the last decade with city,chavs and Utd proves one side and yet leics and an extent our own fairytale also proves that money isnt everything. Or possibly have we reached a plateau now,where most PL clubs have enough money to compete more evenly on the pitch if not on the stock market?I mean 40k a week should buy you a decent player if you choose wisely,300k pw for rooney or 80k for Kane,who is the better player is just a debate cos they are both on their day top international players,yet Kane is almost £1million a month cheaper.Staggering.And proof we can dream a bit of beating the "big boys".
