the rumours of him having "baggage" are disturbing.

What are these rumours?

A lot has been made about the lack of genuine quality  striker but the upper management of the club including the directors, plushWalsh and Koeman all made a massive error in not identifying how defensively frail we are.

I know having a better striker and more of a goal threat would make us less likely to concede goals but we have had Steve fucking Watson playing as our main striker in the past and we didn't look this bad defensively.

Our (outfield) defence is a shambles and there is a real lack of leadership despite the relative experience of our senior defenders.

Jags, Williams and Baines all need to be replaced sooner rather than later and aside from Keane, who does not look like he has the experience or leadership skills yet, we made no planning for the short to medium term future here aside from buying Martina as a stop gap.

I don't think this responsibility falls directly on Walsh, I think it should have been the collective responsibility of Walsh and Koeman and the board to plan player recruitment for the short, mid and long term. But we did none of the this in the defensive department. We have bought talented exciting youngsters but we need to identify and recruit defenders who are in or coming into their prime who will take us into the upper echelon of clubs.

Well Koeman wanted a striker and a left sided defender and we got neither so he didnít get everything his own way.

In addition to not acquiring a left back we need to question some of the decisions made regarding the squad

Having not signed a left back, why did we not include Luke Garbutt as part of the squad or not send Connolly out on loan?

Why have we not planned for Baines getting injured?

Assuming it was Koeman's decision on the final squad, did anybody question him on contingency plans for players getting injured.

That fact that Sammy Lee is the most liked of this lot among the fans shows what a pair of cunts Walsh and Allardyce are

The signing of Walcott was a bit meh and seem uninspired but he has shown to be a shrewd bit of business. You can tell he's has played at a higher level than the rest of the team for most of his career.

Maybe this is the area of the market we have identified will offer most value, similar to some Moyes gems, buying players who haven;t quite made it at the top level and rejuvenating their careers
