Our problems all stem down to the recruitment in the summer, particularly the chase of Sigurdsson.
We boxed off a lot of positions that needed to be strengthened early in the summer. Keeper, centre half, attacking midfield, as well as adding Wayne Rooney.
We then sold Lukaku for 70 mil which is when Walsh, Koeman and Moshiri should've took stock and made sure we weren't left short in any areas.
This is where we pandered to Koemans ego and chased a player we didn't need purely to satisfy a man who had no long term vision of the club.
Instead of chasing Sigurdsson we should've made signing a striker, a left back and another centre half the priority.
No one wanted to stand up to Koeman and say this obsession with Sigurdsson was costing the team in other vital areas. Walsh just seemed to let it all happen, whilst Moshiri saw an opportunity to make a 'statement' by throwing 45mil at a player who was really worth just over half that amount.
It left us with no back up left back to a 32 year old who's on a rapid decline, Ashley Williams still being a main starter, and no one to play upfront having to rely on DCL who's clearly out of his depth at this stage in his career.
It's negligence of the highest order and the director of football who overseas player recruitment has to take responsibility and fall on his sword.
