Not really no. We were underperforming massively, and have the 7th/8th best squad and budget in the league. Swansea just aren't very good anymore, and have been in steady decline for some time.
On a budget to talent ratio Pickford apart it was a terrible spending spree, you could pay a million quid for a packet of polo's if your thick enough.
I'm confused on what we've spent, Pickford and polos have anything to do with the previous post or indeed Swansea?
We were underperforming massively - yes, not hard to see that
We have the 7th/8th best squad - debatable perhaps but still superior to Swansea
We have the 7th/8th best budget - yes we appear to have lots of money to spend currently
Swansea just aren't very good - nice way of putting it, but yes they are a fucking mess
