Net Spend: -£50.80m
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why net spend is a bullshit metric. Burnley have a net spend of minus £50.8 million pounds over the summer. It doesn’t tell you who, it doesn’t tell you why and it doesn’t tell you how many.
It doesn’t actually tell you anything.
In short, never trust a metric invented by Rafa Benitez.
