I see your point but its hardly boom and bust, 7 in, 5 out so we are attempting to balancing the books.Does it not worry you that you seem to be adopting a boom or bust strategy in a season where we might not see a finish, most other clubs are being careful and trying to survive but you are just spend spend spend.
3 of those who came in were on part time contracts so will be on a relatively small wage, one is a loanee from Villa we won't be paying for, one was a free agent. We paid a small fee for Taylor (10k upfront I think) and not sure if he was PT or FT at Chester but him and Dinanga on loan from Stevenage (also who will be on a small wage given he was playing for Matlock Town in 2019) are the only two FT 'proper' signings.
We are due 2 decent earners out the door (Buchanan and Boden) so the net effect will probably be we have reduced our wage bill potentially, certainly not increasing it significantly. Cropper is also probably going to have his loan cancelled, i suspect we are contributing a bit to his wages which will also free up some more funds.
Bearing in mind we've got 2 or 3 players still on FL contracts earning 2k+ a week, these signings are drops in the ocean compared to some of our legacy contracted players, most of whom are off the books but Weston, Evans and Rowley still remain.
