I don't agree with the simplicity of Jamie's argument, but I do think it's absolutely legitimate to ask whether with a bit more ambition we would be winning things. You have to make hay while the sun shines, and we've left an awful lot to do this summer. There's a reason why every single other club in the major leagues invested last summer.
Sky pundits seem to be really dim. They cannot seem to grasp that building a billion pound stadium shows ambition and significant investment from the owners. If we had not bothered with the stadium and forked out 100 million players we would be seen as ambitious (despite spending 900 million less).
Yet last week, after the Chelsea game, he quite rightly said it’s so difficult to bring players in that are better than what we have.
I’d imagine his Sky producers ask for a different view today.
I just wish someone would say it how it is; we are 1, maybe 2 players away from an amazing squad. But even then, after a World Cup and minimal pre-season training, this season was always going to be difficult.
Look at our closest rivals - City and Liverpool - they both spend way above us with no stadium overheads.
I still pinch myself to see how we are doing so well.
