For a team that operates under a lower internal cap - that is a difficult obstacle to overcome.

It does show though how much better a job the club has done with respect to the other half of the game (preventing goals) with a limited budget - and of course great coaching.
Agree with everything you've said. That's what impresses me. They spend less than almost any other team, and get more out of the team (with good coaching and players buying into the system) than any other team does.
