Jack Ross, St Mirren manager going to Sunderland. That's a big step up.
Iím sensing a trophy here lads. Or do we call it silvaware?
I didn't say you did. I just made the point that they're not unknowns looking for a chance in the league, they were established players that were going to a team a level above what we can offer. There's not one of those players we could have got at the time Liverpool got them - we'd need to be looking at getting them the step earlier.
But youíd be forgiven for thinking that we exclusively signed proven PL players under Walsh, when in actuality we didnít (Lookman, Vlasic, Sandro, Klaassen).Those four attacking players also pretty much encapsulate one of the biggest problems with recruitment under Walsh.
The issue was how many of the signings worked out or not (to date).
