I'd deffo say we are up there with regards to the clubs that strengthened where they needed it most.
The neighbours basically strengthened positions that they were already strong in. Still have a shot defence and shit goalie.
Arsenal bought a good goal scorer but judging by his social posts he's realised he's in for a tough one with that senile old prick in charge. This one will end in tears. Plus like half a dozen of their first team want to fuck off asap.
City, Chelsea and Utd aren't within our reach so don't matter so much. I think they all did good summer business, however, they all needed a key position filled. City are short a CB and we're frantically trying to buy, Utd same but with a winger, Chelsea needed a back up CF because I don't think anyone apart from @Evertonian in NC
I actually think Spurs are the side needing the least out of everyone, they replaced their RB with a RB and bought cover at the back and up top.
Below us, Leicester made me twitch with a couple of very astute signings, but then @MrWhite
reminded me that they literally have a big gaping whole in the centre of the park.
Not sure who else is in the chasing pack tbh.
We replaced two shit goalies with a fantastic looking one. Added a class act of a CB to replace a reality show winner Argentinian CB. Continue to blood a couple of (let's not mince words here) extremely good young English attackers. Replaced a wantaway AM with (statistically speaking) extremely effective Icelandic AM and a very decent looking Dutch lad. Then swapped Kone with a Barca graduate who bagged 14 la liga goals last season at the age of 21. Plus we've added Rooney, who has looked a level above what we've had in terms of experience and know how. Plus he's actually scored a couple.
Admittedly, Rom is a massive loss and would be to and side in the world. But I would honestly lay it all on the line and say that there will 100% be a striker coming in Jan. And I'd also bet it's a very, very good one. Someone will find themselves on the bench in a World Cup year and either move on or at the very least head in on loan to bang a few in for 6 months.
And then the fun begins all over again!
