Can you tell us what the real average attendance figure is and how much is that a concern?A: We do try and keep a record of that, but it is never a precise science.“It’s not all about transfer fees, it’s about the overall cost to the playing budget.” IM: “It is a big gamble signing players from non-league, but I think it’s well-respected that Kieffer Moore was one of the good things we saw in the Derby match. IM: “He is putting that six or seven million in a year. “Fans are expecting Marcus to spend two or three times more than he currently is. “I’ve been told there are some owners who won’t be investing the amount they have been after a one-year go at it.You’ve seen the loss he’s made over the 10 year period.
