Don’t think anyone’s expecting miracles where we suddenly find half a dozen players for buttons who end up fantastic
Just a proper plan where we sign what we need. They’ll still be mistakes in the market. There always is but we will hopefully sign the types of player we actually need rather than a scattergun approach.
Exactly. We need an identity and then players who fit/buy into that. As I've said previously, I hope we go for blanket pace across the front, 3 Walcott-in-his-prime-type players, with an eye for goal.
There is also a hope that we may cast our net wider than last season's bottom 5. I'm a strong advocate of PL experience - when City first had their riches, they bought the best players from the 2 or 3 clubs around them (although mainly Arsenal); whereas we seem to offer a route away from relegation battles or a life in the Championship - but it really isn't very imaginative and there are plenty of players outside the Premier League who could take us forward.
There's always a risk associated with change, but this has to be a positive step towards where we want to go. And it's definitely more progressive than Steve Walsh and Sam Allardyce.
