The idea of only buying players that strengthen your first 11 is a good one, but only works in certain circumstances. In my opinion Targett is one of the best left backs in the league, and he's not some journeyman in his mid 30s we need to replace, he's signed up for the long term.

We don't need to replace him, we don't even really need proper competition for him until we're playing 50 games a year in Europe, what we need is someone decent enough to play 5-10 games next season and give him a rest from time to time. If we had a backup left back already we wouldn't be signing anyone, because Targett is our man there. 

We could go out and spend all of our remaining budget on a young, highly regarded left back that will be expecting first team football and give him and Targett 20 games each next season, or get a short term backup signed cheaply, for the actual reason we need, allowing us to spend our money where we have more pressing priorities.

Next season, when our more pressing positions have been filled, maybe we can revisit our need for a left back

All the talk of "all the big teams have multiple players for each position" is all well and good but they're playing 50/60 games a year, a bit part player there could easily play 30 matches, we can't offer players that yet 

How is 10 to 20 million the rest of our transfer budget. 

No way is target one of the best left backs. He has had one good season being played quite defensively, and one bad season playing quite offensively. He is decent but limited. Certainly not one of the best. If you really think that you're in dream land.

Jack comes back from the Euro's and asks "Dean, who are all these lads?".

"Oh, yeah the owners told Lange and myself to go buy whoever we wanted and we signed all these"
