I can't get over how clownish we've been in this hole saga. We needed two midfielders last summer. First we were willing to pay 70m+ for Tchouameni, but then Madrid happened. OK. Next up, Bellingham. But he won't be available till next summer.
Stupid decision #1: Let's put all our eggs in one basket, not sign any midfielders this summer and wait for Bellingham next year.
Stupid decision #2: Oh feck, it's only august and it's now beyond obvious we really did need two midfielders to not crash and burn. Let's sign Arthur on loan. trollol.
Stupid decision #3: January window. It's apparent to all we need 3 midfielders for next season and still 2 to salvage this season. Still, let's just wait on Bellingham and hope he can do a job for two.
Stupid decision #4: January window closed? Come to think of it, Bellingham is looking a tad expensive. Don't know how we didn't see that before now. Let's pull pull out and sign 3 affordable midfielders anyway.
