Not to be a Debbie Downer but I’m really dismayed at our transfer window which has left us with the likelihood of Fred and McTominay starting on Sunday. We have made all these structural changes and have learned nothing
If he’s concerned about raising standards he should ask why the continent of Africa only gets 5 World Cup qualifying places whereas Europe gets 13 despite having nearly double the population of Europe?
Our track record of improving players is appalling, so one from a smaller club is fine, but when we’re discussing 4 or 5 in one go, all from the same club, that doesn’t sound promising.
I think we’d do well in Eredivisie as we are now.
A stark reminder not to sign a player without a plan of where to fit him into the team. A mistake we then repeated several times at an immense cost to the club and our chances of success.
Isolated moments of greatness, more so than Pogba, but an expensive mistake we clung on to for far too long.
