Robins' Cry-ne out for transfer funds

Come August, Mark Robins will have had a full pre-season under his belt at Barnsley`s helm - having had a chance to go out and strengthen during a full transfer window.

It is vitally important, however, that Mr Robins spends wisely - providing he gets to spend at all.

The former Rotherham boss has dropped a shed load of hints at his frustration in terms of financial backing - but in order for Robins and his crew to take us to as he puts, '`the next level``, Mr Cryne has to rip open the cheque book and sign a few sheets…

With parachute payments from West Brom and Newcastle, a tasty £900k should be the minimum amount Robins gets to spend - this sum amounting to your typical bottom-half Championship player.

The Reds faithful won't be happy by saving their Championship status during the latter stages of the season next year - it's time for some success, as it's now a whole decade since our proud March to Wembley for the Play-Off Final.

The bottom line remains, if you pay peanuts - you get monkeys, and Barnsley folk aren`t buying season tickets to the zoo. It`s time we saw some more '`box office`` players down at Oakwell - so come on, Mr Cryne, get spending, and let`s see how our shrewd gaffer can handle some proper wonga in the transfer market.
