They definitely got Brady but were shot of their previous starter at quarterback. 25 mil per year is about average for a starter ( the starter in Houston signed today for 40 mil per annum) so they’re not breaking the bank. Doubt there needed to be the shift of funds as the nfl tv deal is enormous.

The TV deal must have been hit by covid though?

The NFL season ended before COVID hit. The new season starts next week and the teams are ready. They canceled the preseason which no one watches anyway.

Ah okay. So they've missed the worst of it. But those media groups will still have been hit by no live sport. No boxing, golf, football etc. I follow boxing closely and all the broadcasters have been hit hard. It's gonna change the game, you just won't see it yet.

Woodward wrote this in today's match day programme, basically saying we aren't spending big cos of coronavirus, so be happy with Donny and Fernandes who he tried to pass off a sumemr signing

“Disruption from the pandemic is continuing to create huge economic pressures from the top to the bottom of the football pyramid and, while we are fortunate to be in a more resilient position than most clubs, we are not immune from the impact. Despite this, we are delighted to have brought in Donny van de Beek from Ajax, adding further quality to a midfield already strengthened by the recruitment of Bruno Fernandes in January.

“Both Donny and Bruno are players we had been tracking for some time and their signings reflect out long-term approach to blending high-quality recruits with homegrown talent to develop a squad capable of winning trophies playing attacking, entertaining football.”

“As part of that process, we have also awarded new contracts to Nemanja Matic and academy graduates Dean Henderson, Brandon Williams, Scott McTominay and Mason Greenwood over the past year. We have also continued to strengthen our thriving academy by attracting several promising young players from across Europe, including Marc Jurado from Barcelona and Alvaro Fernandez Carreras from Real Madrid.

“Together, these investments reinforce our optimism about the future, and we will continue to build on these strong foundations. However, we must also be responsible in our use of resources during the most extraordinarily challenging time for everyone in football.”

Grim reading that, but yeah seems like we have our lot.

Its criminal! There can't be many teams who have spent less than us this summer.

Also call bs over long term interest/scouting of vdb. He was destined for Madrid, they lost interest, and van der sar was able to hand hold the utd leadership through negotiations and get a decent player at a decent price. Perfect opportunistic signing.
