Not to disrespect but there's a smidgen of revisionism going on here.
If this was Walsh's first season with us then I think he'd be due a bit of lee-way and the likes of DCL and Lookman are good finds but they're few and far between.
It's not really how the signings have turned out but I just don't see what he was doing in the summer and it was his ineptitude that was a major reason for our dreadful season.
We signed four players in the Premier League for big money. Pickford, Keane, Sigurdsson and Rooney. It doesn't take a top director of football to persue those players.
Then you've got Klaassen and Martina who in my mind were probably Koeman signings and considering how they turned out, Walsh would probably accept that.
So the only senior players he brought in to the side with any real scouting involved would be Sandro and Vlasic. The former turned out to be the biggest flop in the league and the other was only signed after he'd played against us.
He went to Italy for a fucking week to supposedly talk to clubs about players and come back with fuck all.
He had all his eggs in a Giroud shaped basket and no back-up plan leaving us with an inexperienced DCL and the banished Niasse.
The fella is way out of his depth.
