This is why I'll give him time. Said earlier - with a senior striker playing, we would've scored at least another 5 goals this season. Goals change games. Lukaku takes Rooney's chance against Utd, and takes DCLs awful misses. Not saying we'd be playing great football but we'd be getting better results.
The board and Walsh are to blame for most of this shambles. They're the ones who failed to deliver for two summers running. Unbalanced squad which isn't the mangers fault...the manager is essentially the head coach. Ancelotti wouldn't touch us as he'd just look at our record since the takeover and realise we're just fucking wannabes.
I don't buy the argument that the transfer window is all the board/Walsh's fault. They seem to have got all of Koeman's main targets in except for the striker, even massively overpaying for Sigurdsson who Koeman was very clear that he wanted.
Koeman himself has said there was no point going for a lesser quality striker once the first 2 options he wanted weren't possible. We're not Real Madrid, so of course there's a big chance high quality players won't come. Therefore you need to go for someone who can "do a job" when you have a glaring hole in the squad. Even Andre Gray would have improved what we have now and was available.
There was talk he didn't want to bring in anyone who wasn't an improvement on DCL. Well as promising as he is, there are a lot of better strikers in the Prem right now. And if he rates him so highly, why not play him?
I don't see koeman getting any better, or changing what he does due to a tactical rethink, so we should get rid before he causes more damage.
