That is bizarre, Henderson was very poor, I lost count of the number of times he gave the ball away or over hit that long ball to sterling. Dier seemed to calm things down and I thought we were going to win it until we switched off
Fair enough, but I'd like us to put more faith in some of our youth and spend the 150m on 2 top notch players (not Zaha 😉). itk have also stated we have the money to spend before player sales, if we sell 4-5 we should be reinvesting that back into the squad
Really disappointing to hear, especially as everything seemed rosy in the January window with deals lined up and at the start of this window.
The transfers being mentioned (while decent and add depth) will not improve our first 11, and will certainly not make us challenge for the title.
A little worrying to hear the latest. I would be extremely concerned if Poch thought Grealish and Plea were the sort of signings that would push us on to the next level, if we end up with those 2 and say Gomes I'd be shocked if Poch was still with us this time next year. Trying not to panic...
Zaha is decent, but not close to Martial and certainly not worth 70m. Martial is an upgrade and makes our starting 11 stronger, Zaha (for me) isn't any better than what we already have and would only add depth, and at 70m it's a no from me.
