To be fair, we only had a week to sign around 4-5 players, It can't have been easy for Moyes. I think we are lucky he was very much off the radar, if we'd have went for anyone half decent I'd have fully expected us to be outbid by another club. Even with the 18-20 million had to spend, it's really not alot when you have to spread it out, and buy four players or so.
It's far too early to judge Bilyaletdinov, who knows, if he improves his delivery and has the right fullback behind him he might turn into a Beckham style wide player, someone who whips crosses in early and from deeper positions. But I have my doubts to be honest, there aren't many players like Beckham around.
