    Providing liquidity. Allowing Paratici flexibility to boss it.

    Loans and having a decent size squad pre-WC, are no doubt our fall backs. If Paratici can sell Ndombele, LeCelco, Winks and Bergwjin, any other sales are a bonus more than a necessity you feel.

    Just sat a twitter comment about the England u19 squad filled with Aston Villa talents in the midfield. Hopefully he can do the same for us.

    Could be. Is there a path to reversing that cash injection though?

    Don't think the overall reaction to being promised/given a cash injection after all these years and then being told, "nah, it wasn't actually an injection to spend more" would be positive from many fans.

    Think a solid net spend is still at least rather likely. If that ends up being close to £150m is a different question. What do you think?

    Still very early in the window, a lot of outgoing businesses we'd like to get done. So very difficult to guess at this point.

    It mainly for liquidity. And of course to keep Conte around!.

    We have a deficit on transfer spending, owe a lot/not owed much. Quite a chunk of that owed in the short term.

    That's not necessarily a problem if that debt was built up with players that are a success and by continuation, more valuable. You're then just into squad tweak territory. That didn't happen. So when Paratici came in, not only had we spent badly, so (still) requiring an overhaul, we'd also suffered from severely reduced income. (Covid).

    The £150m smooths all that out. Gives us the flexibility to chase players we want without dependency on another deal. It's an admittance that we'd like to offload the deadwood in a timely fashion but if we don't, we can roll with a half baked solution, even If financially it's not the best.

    It's not for liquidity we had £147m cash in the bank. Our short term debt (paid within a year) was £57m.

    Think it's loss of value due to covid. Everton put theirs at £70m or something stupid to get round ffp. Why burnley complained.
