Donít think your old uncle was racist all. The original term was used by Sir Walter Scott in his novel Rob Roy and was describing Jacobists and Papists.

Obviously, the easily offended have extrapolated tar to mean black, black to mean racist. All hogwash.

James Bond is my favourite agent

Allows me to remember a favourite Clough quote:

ďThe only agent back then was 007 Ė and he shagged women, not football clubsĒ

Going back to the original post subject, putting our £28,818 spent on agent fees into context....

Wellens said in a recent interview that our entire playing budget for the season was £1.8m.

This coming season we will be playing Sunderland whos agent fees over the same period amounted to an astonishing £1.35m alone! and that was half the previous seasons figure!

Only 4 clubs spent less on agent fees in L1 than we did - Gills(£28k), Wycombe(£26k), Rochdale(15k) and Bolton (£0), even Accrington spent marginally more than us with both local rivals Oxford and Rovers spending around £140k mark around 5 times the amount.

I think Wellens May have been a bit sneaky about the £1.8m budget.

Iím sure thatís what the budget was last June. But stuck on the January window and it must have gone well over that.

There's every chance of that being the case. He's known for not being entirely honest about transfers and stuff.

Yes Wellens has not been 100% honest with transfers etc but if Power is signing players like Grant or Doyle on a fraction of their fee then that could explain a lower budget than thought, or Wellens could be distorting the truth to put other clubs off from know our actual budget.

The point still stands that Sunderland have wasted a metric shit ton of funds on agent fees though.
