Last season it was clear the overlapping CB would be even more successful if we had technically better players then our 2nd division heroes, a great opportunity to kick on. For the sake of £18m Ramsdale we could have signed 6 x£60k pw for 12months and secured the team for another PL year. One would think the "Manager of the year" would know how to find them. Or at least have a plan b if for example an injury crisis or a loss of form arose. Yesterdays performance was the worst since Adkins Scunthorpe, but still he shows no sign that he will try something different.We talk about fine margins but there’s nothing fine about spending £23 million pound, nothing smart about gambling that sort of money and then moaning that we don’t have any. Makes no sense. We don’t have any money, so i tell you what I’m going to gamble £23 million of it. Let’s say Brewster go’s on the score a shed load of goals, starts attracting attention, Liverpool get involved he’s gone. If not we’re stuck with the the transfer business equivalent of Andy Carroll, stupid transfer in my eyes and (with the luxury of hindsight) he’s offered nothing we’d have been better off signing a defender to cover JOC and a creative midfielder, because we have coped 95% of this season using the tried and tested strikers of old.
£5 million bought us a player in Burke that’s been far more effective, I would call that a sensible gamble if the people in charge really believed we had no money.
