The only people who can judge 'value' are the people within the club who put up the money and know what they are looking for.

What concerns me is that the people who put up the money don't seem understand value or know what they're looking for.

That's how we ended up making boring, average managers like Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce among the top 10 highest paid in Europe.

That's how, with (at least) the 7th highest wage bill in England, we're scrapping to fight off the likes of Burnley, Leicester, and Watford for 7th place.

That's how, with a top 20 wage bill in Europe, we didn't even look like we belonged on the pitch against Lyon and Atalanta (whose marquee signing last summer was Marten de Roon from relegated Middlesbrough).

Maybe if more fans speak up and say "hey, stop being so fucking stupid," the club might actually try to make positive changes to the way it makes football decisions. We should be Europa League contenders with the amount we spend.

At this point... it is what it is. We've hired boring, mid-table people to make decisions and we're getting boring, mid-table outcomes.

We will eventually pay for all of this short-term bullshit. Worse than we are already.

And yes, I'm aware that I'm a miserable cunt.

assuming we 1. have possession of the ball and 2. a player who can play a forward pass

Spoiler: show
We won't.

The midfield is a much bigger issue than the attack. Even lousy attackers will score if you feed them.
