The Rabiot rumour was the only possible piece of business for a top class player (that we need) that I thought may have been possible in January.
Have no expectation that we will strengthen at all after JJ's killing of said rumour. Shame.
I don't want to see Lucas, Sissoko, Aurier, Foyth starting.
(I think Foyth will be fantastic by the way, just want him out the firing line for a game - not that it's usually Poch's method.)
I do want to see Lamela and Winks.
Guess the fitness of Alli, Vertonghen and Eriksen after injury lay...
I'm generally a pretty positive (or at least realistic) fan, but this window has left me feeling severely let down and disappointed in the Club. Re-wind to the end of last season and it was unfathomable that we would not strengthen our team and invest adequately at the current market rates to...
If we are going with the 'promoting youth' line as a reason we haven't made signings .... and then Sissoko starts ahead of Skipp this weekend then we riot... *
*riot = express displeasure in the the match thread... **
**If we lose, because hindsight is great.
Guess this will be the party line for the season...
I struggle to believe this was the plan all along given the high profile approaches of Martial and Grealish etc, but I guess it is where we are now..
It wasn't a criticism of Levy on that occasion, more of highlighting the point that he is not going to kick up a fuss at his boyhood club who he plays for and supports. Which is what his behavior is highlighting.
And rightly so.
