    This was supposed to be with a tinge of humour for those thinking of disagreeiing or thinking I've lost the plot

    Considering the conversation arose from us going for the "bargain option" of 15m Janssen instead of 33m Batshuayi, yes I think 11m Eriksen, 11m Alderweireld and Wimmer for 4m are definitely bargains, as is 8m for a world class keeper.

    In regards to Lamela, Im a big fan of his, but he would need to improve his end product to become great IMO, but that still only makes 1 out of 3 of our 20m+ signings that has come good so far (though I have hope for Son).

    for me the most concerning part of this whole TW, isn't the fact I still don't like Janssen or rate him, is that we've had no ITK or even journo's mentioning any interest in someone to fill in for Dembele, a proper CM. As things stand Mason is still that man...

    (please don't suggest Wanyama for this)*

    *NOTE FROM A&C: Please don't suggest ANYONE for this. This is the ITK discussion thread.

    If we replace Kane like-for-like we need a finisher who is good at linking up play.

    Janssen is that man.

    If we want an all rounder who can play wide and with Kane, Michy would have been better.

    If we can get Janssen at a good price and sign an exciting wide player, it's the same result (and probably better).

    Over £30m for Michy is insane.

    Shame he isn't going for under £10 million then.

    I keep seeing a lot of posts doubting Janssen and I'm concerned that he might an unmitigated disaster

    But then I see all those posts are from the same 2 posters

    But transfers aren't that simple, even if Bats was out number 1 target, doesn't mean there was much of a difference between target #1 and target #2.

    Now suppose target #1's wage demands would put him as our highest paid player and suppose we have 5 players that have a clause in their contract to say we have to match their wage with the highest paid player's (as suggested in The Times, which was given a winner rating by JJ when posted in here), it's entirely possible that the increase in wages would mean we didn't have enough budget to give an extended contract (and thus wage increase) to Lamela, Eriksen, Verts and Chadli and they could walk on a free in 2 years. In this scenario, stumping up for the number 1 target wouldn't be the wisest option.
