I think DC is spot on with what he has said, and I don't have a problem with it.
We all want to be in the PL sooner rather than later.
We all want big sums spent on players (EFL say no).
We all want the best players at the club (EFL hinder, see above).
To get to the PL most teams that didn't have parachute payments, have over spent and it has been overlooked. Teams that fail (us and Derby) then get reviewed.
Whilst making some very bad mistakes at the club in his time, I don't see how this statement really shows him in bad light, he's just been honest - which will probably get him an EFL fine.
