I think squad quality is very high, the problem is the team quality. The sums of our parts is fuck all, they are all good cogs just none of them fit together.

Yes, the balance of the squad (or rather, the complete lack of it) is also part of the equation for overall squad quality. So you can't just compare players from this squad and another one and say, look, we've got better players because it's all worth fuck all if all your players happen to be goalkeepers.

My biggest problem with the current squad is that I don't see any kind of vision or direction. We're signing players on an ad hoc basis, whereas under Moyes and Martinez we had some kind of idea what their vision was, even if we may not have liked that vision.

A 3.5-year deal seems pretty short for a 20 million plus player. Maybe there's a year option at the end of it. It looks all done and dusted then! I think he's a top signing. :)

Think as a stand alone transfer it's a pretty good 1. Gives us pace, goals and a little more balance and 20m is cheap these days

I think opposition to it including my own is more the theme of this alongside rooney, Sigurdsson, Morgan etc. Rather than any of them individuallly.
