Weird, a few weeks ago, people were happy with getting out Bentaleb, Mason, Chadli, and getting in Janssen, Wanyama, GKN...

What the fuck happened that turned "I'm very happy with this window" to "an utter shambles, we never fackin' go for it!"?
Because it's SC, a place more schizophrenic than any other forum I know.

How? We've brought in 2 excellent players in Janssen and Wanyama, in our most needed positions, and balanced the books by selling 4-5 player who played 3 games between them last season.

Just let all the doomsday stuff about Zaha and Phil Jones pass you by, as it's just being created to fill the void of real news.
But some would argue (and I would say correctly), that the reason those players didn't feature more last season is because the first 11 or so were run completely into the ground. And now, with a new season, improved rivals and bigger competitions to be part of, we're putting ourselves in a very risky position to do the same thing again.

Trying to give this an agree rating deserves a winner too. We truly did run our 1st 11 hard last season. I would keep players like Mason/Chadli. Why weaken the squad when we have a more demanding season ahead.

We always linked to some or other top signing in the final days of the window. Selling our experienced squad players. Bentaleb Mason, Chadli and not getting replacements is suicidal. We cant get Nkoudou or Pau Lopez over the line after almost 2 months of being linked to the former how can we possibly do deals inside of 3 days.
