Sigurdsson really isn’t a playmaker. We need someone who goes past players and with better creativity. He’s a good player. Should be in the team but he’s not a playmaker

Sigurdsson is like a kicker in the NFL. If we could put him in at every deadball and then change him again it would be perfect. As Steve Walsh and Koeman should know that is actually not allowed and hence we should never have used 40-50 million pounds for him. Dreadfull signing.

He didn't actually do that much from dead balls last season, but he's still a decent player and worth a spot in the squad. His outlay will be beaten again this summer so it won't "feel" as bad. The 30 mill we paid for Bolasie feels worse to me, even before his injury.

Sigurdsson is sound and one of the few we have who is fairly reliably EL standard.

I didn’t particularly want him, but I have grown to quite like him. Absolutely guaranteed goals and assists in the prem - just needs ball magnets around him to actually get involved in the play.

Say what you want about rooney he did want the ball, sig not so much, which is why he couldn’t make it at a higher level. You need to do both e.g hazard, coutinho, de bruyne etc.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Sigurdsson started off slow as did most of our players, but he is quality, was by far our best player before he got injured

Can’t see us spending £45m+ on a player any time soon.

Think we need to buy the right player and not be to concerned about spending “big” really. We’ve wasted an awful lot recently on “premier league proven” players who ultimately aren’t that much better than what we have and have no scope for developing, wrong age and wrong time for premium prices.

I reckon we need to look for younger, hungrier players with potential to develope and grow here, and they aren’t the ones you’d need to break the bank for most of the time.

45m would be the going rate for a half decent player now. Transfer fee inflation isn’t stopping anytime soon

I'd prefer that model too, but a big name here or there wouldn't go amiss. We need to be finding the next Salah and that type of player ideally.

And a few Walcott type bargains are always good too. I think if we'd have got Sig for 30 and Walcott for 30, we wouldn't be so concerned about Sig's price and yet the two together are still a 60 million outlay.

That’d rule out about 99% of the worlds football clubs from buying half decent players.

To be honest I’ve been underwhelmed by both and expect there’s much better for a lot less.

Maybe it’s all been down to the tactics of the managers but neither have impressed or excited since they came I’d say and considering the respective ages I don’t see them getting much better next season regardless of who’s in charge.

Not sure you'll get much better than Walcott for 20 mill. That's an absolute bargain these days.

And don't forget we've had most of the season with Fat Sam's shitty tactics, I think both will improve with a manager who knows something about football.
