Aye, still fussing over £25-30m for a striker, and the teams we want to challenge have got £90m+ attackers across their front line and on the bench.
Don’t mean to toot my own fruit but I did say all this when we were looking at selling Lukaku and getting “3-4 players” for the 60-70m. Left behind again.
Think we hoped we'd be clever with the money. Find a couple of 20-30m players who go on become worth much more than that. I guess like Liverpool have done with their forwards. Instead we went down the proven route with Sigurdsson. The problem is you pay a premium from premier league proven and anyone who's proven great doesn't want to play here.
It's actually painful watching us. It's not down to Allardyce either. What team has no quality at full back, wings and upfront?
Fucking 1 aging left back in the entire squad. Only remotely proven right back out for a year. Only proven attacking winger out for a year. No striker any top flight quality. We should have kept Valencia who web for next to nowt. It's like some fucking drunk made all our recruitment decisions
This season is a write off now. To be a functioning team. We need at least 4 in this window and it won't happen. Waste of a year
