If we'd have signed Johnson in Jan for 200k, would he have been a better quality player than he is now when we signed him for free?
To be fair, a good barometer of quality is wage demands. Thats why often teams with biggest player wage budgets (not necessarily transfer budgets) finish higher.
However, players who can demand bigger wages also require bigger transfer fees. It's not totally unrelated.
Look in League 2 a club gets £750,000, In League 1 £1-5 million, Championship £6 million, Premier league £130 million plus E,S,T
So budgets between divisions are very different And Hoolahan in league 2 stands out like Quinn and they are quality and good at league 2 level.
To get out of this league we need someone who can make a difference,
Clough will get a good team but will be looking for that spark.
Clough says he has a good budget for league 2, and will not waste it, Clough knows quality just been watching Che Addams Southhamton and Scotland.
Clough bought him from Ilkeston town for £150.000, i saw him score 2 against Spurs on his debut
But clubs do get more money the higher the league they play in, and money matters
