The quality in the league is highly questionable right now. I mean teams are finishing comfortably mid table on 44 pts.
Our points donít lie. We finished second in the best of the rest league. The question is do we feel closer to catching the top 6? We seem to me, further away than we have in years since weíve lost Lukaku and others. This side does not seem ready to challenge at that level, to be that consistent. So if weíre not chasing 6th and above we effectively just become part of the big amorphous blob of average teams that make up 7th and below.
Thatís different question from the panic about a relegation level squad though.
Agree finding an attacker at or about Lukakuís level is needed and isnít obvious where it would come from.
But if you think the management has been terrible then you canít reasonably write off these players from looking much better under new management with 2 or 3 players with the attributes that we currently lack, having been added.
