Now the Window has closed and the rumoured £400K for Freddie goes no further than an Internet Thread, I thought it surprising how little seems to be made of a L1 Club spending £4M on one Player. (More than Alan Shearers' first big Transfer fee)
I'm not sure if its a record for a move TO the 3rd Division but it's certainly up there !
I cant decide if it's a new precedent being set, a reminder of how it will eventually all go wrong for one of the bigger spending Clubs or a good investment to ensure promotion.
Is it a sign of real ambition and intent or a very expensive way of trying to compete with a Club like us, Accrington and AFC Wimbledon. A massive Club spending a fortune to do one better than Burton ?
There be rocks ahead.
