Opinions are theories.It’s not a theory - it’s an opinion! You sound like Rafa and his ‘fachts’, well done.
We shouldn’t be buying players for the sake of it. We all know we need a CB, but it’s better to get it right, and with the input of the next manager/ DoF - neither of which are in place.
OGS doesn’t have his hands tied, he would have known what the likelihood of transfers would have been when he joined. We don’t. You don’t.
So he doesn't have his hands tied, but isn't allowed to sign anyone. Great logic
If we finish outside the top 4 whoever is taking over is also going to have issues. A quality defender will be a quality defender regardless of who the next manger is. Like I said no new manager is going to want s full new team, giving him a start by having better players available to him for the offset shouldn't be viewed as wrong. Obviously you do, so carry on...
