Yes, 120M. It's the unfortunate reality for us as long as we're paper thin and struggling so we're going to have to deal with it in the meantime. But I consider it the right direction because these were all signings in areas where we were/are weak. We never had a proper right forward/winger with pace until we signed James.120M for squad depth? 0 clean sheets in so many games.
I wonder where did you get this "right direction" from?
Everyone and their mother knew we needed to add a CB, so we got one. I understand the frustration with Maguire but how good can our back line be when our midfield has been nonexistent for some time? I remember Maguire getting more praise in the beginning when we actually had a midfield (Pogba + McTominay). We also let the wrong CB go to another club and kept the worst ones. Can't pin that on Maguire.
I would use a similar argument for AWB. At least he's a proper right back who can make great tackles and has the benefit of young age. That itself is a huge step up from Young/Valencia. And again, without a decent midfield, what are you going to expect from him going forward? Furthermore, a better manager would know how to maximize his strengths and minimize his weaknesses within the tactical setup.
I can't stress good coaching enough. And I hate to keep invoking Liverpool but hey, we and the Scousers were calling Lovren and Henderson absolute shit for a long time because they were performing like shit. Now they look like class players. We ought to be giving our new signings the benefit of a doubt because of our inept coaching staff. It's players who have been consistently bad under multiple managers that need to go. Looking at Jones, Young, Rojo, Mata.
