We did sign a striker....Sandro! We were all pulling the plum off ourselves earlier in the summer when we got him, now after 3 games 2 of which he was injured for, we are all fit to jump off the liver bird! We also got Rooney and we have DCL. DCL has massive potential and needs his go, so here is his chance. We also bought the hughest scoring MF'r in the country.
Will ye all relax please! We did very well this window, probably our best ever window.

Would you prefer we bought Shane Long and Solomon Rondon just for the sake of it

If you look at the transfers in the window on an indivdual basis we have done great business.

If you look at it as a whole we've done poorly by failing to replace Lukaku with anyone (not even with a donkey) and now haveing to play twice a wekk for 4 months with one senior left back. These 2 failures are not far short of disaster really, it makes it near on impossible for us to progress on from last season.

SANDRO IS A F*KING STRIKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only mistake Mosh made with Sandro was signing him too early, if we had left it till yesterday to buy him you will be in raptures!!

No need for that tone, you can discuss without coming across a complete dick.

Sandro from what I've seen of him is not an out and out striker, he comes deep to get the ball, he is a forward so will play across the front line. He is not someone who is going to stay in the box, there were a number of occasions in preseason where crosses were out into the box and he was standing on the edge of the area and not attacking the ball in the 6 yard box like a true cetnre forward does.

Also, if you look at his goals and chances from last season with Malaga, most were from long range or deep and were not typical centre forward goals, not many of goals were from getting in behind the defence like a true centre forward.

We did not replace Lukaku with a centre forward whos natural position is to play off the last man and to get in the box. Koeman has said we have needed this himself on numerous occasions this window and we haven't got it.

I'm sure we'll get by as we still have a very good squad, I'm also not saying that Sandro can't play there, he can and will probably get a decent amount of goals, but he obviously wasn't the intended solution.

But it is blatently clear that from Koeman's and the clubs point of view we have completely failed to get the a striker in that can play in the system that Koeman has built for over the summer.

Apologies for the tone mate, if its any consolation, it wasn't personal to you but to the whole "transfer disaster" brigade!

Maybe Oumar might come good yet......genuinely.....
get him involved, we are paying him ffs, get him involved, earn his money and you never know.
Cant hurt to try like! Whats the point in letting him rot

As for Ross.....
I'd nearly terminate his contract now so we dont have to pay him for a few months
We will get nothing for him now anyway.
Let him sign for Tottenham and get blisters on his hole and end up and Newcastle this time next year getting fat and bald
