The "statement" stuff is a load of crap. Spending big on a mediocre player is embarrassing and nobody takes notice except to laugh at you after the fact for having a ridiculous valuation. Same deal for managers. It might feel good to hire Ronald Koeman and make him one of the highest paid managers in the world but, in reality, he was never anywhere close to being worth the fuss.

Moshiri's done well at stabilizing our finances and improving our commercial deals but I'm yet to see any evidence that he knows anything about football. The Koeman/Walsh combo was a shambles of the highest order and I doubt the next manager is going to make us any less of a disaster, especially given the names linked.

So... make me eat my words, Farhad.

Really starting to worry. Not about the Usmanov stuff but about football.

Don't know what he's playing at with the Costa/Sanchez/Simeone stories. He seems to be utterly clueless about how to improve the club on the pitch.

unless he’s got the right appointments around him, which of course, he has not.

Yep. We have to wait for him stumble upon a set-up that works, then hope he doesn't fuck it up.

The whole “his money” or “not his money” question is irrelevant.

The real problem is that he’s chosen the wrong people to spend what’s in our budget. A good transfer team would have gotten a lot more out of what we spent this summer. Actually, a good transfer team would have gotten more for less than what we spent this summer.

Walsh apparently has a very close relationship with Moshiri so I can see him being here for the long haul unfortunately and that worries me.

Where did you hear that?

Not questioning the validity, just curious.

I hope someone writes a book about all this one day.

I've resigned myself to our ongoing stupidity but I would eventually like to know how we came to make the decisions we've made during this period, out of morbid curiosity.

It's not just Moshiri. It's everyone involved in making major footballing decisions.

When you have mediocre (at best) leadership, you get mediocre mid-table appointments like Sam Allardyce.
