What is so repulsive about the idea of Calvert-Lewin being our centre forward?
Yeah, his numbers are boosted some by sub effects, but he has a better goals/minutes ratio than everyone at the club not named Richarlison (and it's close between the two of them) for a side that provides next to nothing in terms of service to its strikers. And that's giving Gylfi credit for penalties, which he doesn't really deserve because anyone can score a penalty (Calvert-Lewin included).
Unless someone with obvious quality (and value beyond the next year or two) becomes available for a good price, we don't need to bother adding a CF. We can just develop the guy we already have, who's actually pretty good and could get much better.
What we really need is a midfield. I'd entertain short-term options in that position because the balance in there is totally fucked and it's really holding us back.
I'd be happy with this, there is definitely a good all round CF in there if we can coax him out,
I'm sick of seeing us buy average players for big money and big wages in the desperate hope that a new average face will somehow make us better.
Get a shortlist of 4 or 5 for each position we're looking at, if none are available then don't buy anyone, simple.
Our transfer policy in recent seasons has been nothing short of pathetic
