An article on the BBC Sport website has several managers bemoaning the transfer window that has only a few days left - with Graham Turner's use of the loan system again praised by most:
Both (Barry) Fry and (John) Coleman pointed to the success of Hereford boss Graham Turner, who orchestrated his team's promotion from League Two last season with his adept use of the transfer market.
Turner brought in players from Premier League and Championship clubs - such as the influential Sherjill MacDonald from West Brom - and raised the ire of some of his opponents.
After the Bulls defeated Shrewsbury in February, then Shrews boss Gary Peters stormed "I'm not sure who we were playing. Was it Hereford or a combined team or Premier League and Championship players?"
Fry sees it differently.
"It is no good people saying he has done it with a load of players that aren't his, he has used his budget to best effect," said Fry.
The players Turner brought in were signed in August and left when the season ended so the club were not playing wages over the summer.
Coleman argues that Turner should be applauded for what he achieved on a limited budget and a serious contender for manager of the season.
But Fry's last piece of advice is probably the truth: "You have got to be shrewd and you have got to be lucky."
