What people are forgetting is that if we kept the same squad, you could pretty much guarantee that Lukaku and Barkley would NOT perform like they should. They would have spat their dummies out and slacked, or even just played at 75% (at best).
In the mean time, we have added a fantastic centre half, and a fantastic goalkeeper. We have added a few young attackers, and one not so young, and strengthened in many other areas. We have added one of the best, most consistent "number 10s" that people were crying out for too, at money we could only dream of in recent years. We have had solid news on a proper ground move, and investment which will further cement squad funds going forward.
So if you ask the question "is our squad better than last year". Then yes, 100%, it is abso-fucking-lutely better than last years!
