Don't agree with you on that one. Pickford and Sigurdsson we paid lot's of money for and I would say they have been by fare the best players this season. They had also showed the season before and so one that they are premier leauge proven quality.
Keane had one good season, thats it.
I agree that we have to find good money for value, but then we need to sign young players for the future. In my opinion we have many allready in the youth system that will be first team regulars in the coming years given the chance.
Sigurdsson was practically on strike at 1 stage and Pickford came from a relegated practically bankrupt team. We paid absolutely top dollar for both without much competition from anywhere
I think the majority would say Pickford turned out to be value but it was still the very top end of the prices people were predicting before he signed
Keanes another 1. Very little competition, last year of his contract 25m rising to 30.
We didnít drive hard bargains
