At end of 12/13 we needed better CMs and striker.
Summer 13 we signed McCarthy and Barry, replaced Fellaini with Barkley and got Lukaku.
Lukaku replaced (and more) Fellaini’s goals and Barkley more suited to RM approach so easy to see why we improved from 6th to 5th.
From then it went rapidly down hill with aging players not replaced (Pienaar first up in summer 14) and others losing form along with the team in general.
18 months ago we had 4 of the very best young talent in European football. They’ve all disappeared bar one who nearly left last summer.
We replaced 22 year old Stones with a 31 year old and Lukaku with a 32 year old. That was almost £130m worth of talent gone while under his stewardship, under the governance of managers appointed by him.
Truly awful decisions.
