Not a fan of Carlo? Not thinking it's gonna work out?
Wouldn't say I'm not a fan, I mean he's Carlo Ancelotti he gets automatic buy in based on that from me. It won't last forever but he gets that at least. If you're going to throw money at a steady pair of hands and hope he can steer you into a cup or a good league finish there's probably few better you could choose.
Re: work out...I'm not sure at this point what it working out looks like.
I guess I did hope we'd see more of a project forming, more of a modern club with smart signings and all that. It doesn't look like anyone at the club is interested in doing that despite the noises from Brands. It looks like they want to basically repeat the strategy of Koeman year one, bank on the weight of the manager and buy plug and play players for him with your fingers crossed.
Edit : also to be fair, I like Allan as a player and I think him and Doucoure will be a good midfield pair that will get us at least up to prem standard. We could be signing worse players definitely.
I just don't see the departure from previous mistakes that I was hoping to see. That's partly my issue though if I had expectations or hopes.
