Its easy to forget because players are either injured or have been woefully out of form but weve got way more senior players than ever, probably.

Eg CBs, Mori is probably on the lowest wage and Im guessing hes on a decent whack.

Then weve got Holgate who will be on more than your standard, brought through young defender.

CMs, again Besic on probably the lowest wage but hes about 7th choice (which should be an academy player etc).

Strikers, Niasse on 50k will be the lowest of him, Tosun and Sandro.

If some of the more expensive players dont want to stick it out or look miles off the pace its not as easy to just think 5m a year is ok to write off, when that could be spent on someone who either wants to be here or is more likely to adapt.

5 years ago wed have had no choice but to give these players 18-24 months to sort it out as theyd have been first sub (at worst). Now theyre not even in the squads.

Spot on.

And the crazy thing is, we've never had this many options, and yet we've rarely looked collectively worse (apart from pre-Moyes days)

But that can't be the coaching or tactics, though, as it upsets a few on here if you suggest that.

It HAS to be that EVERY player we've brought in (bar maybe Pickford) is FAR worse than we thought they were going to be.

It's the ONLY explanation.
