In all honesty, these 7 players gave me so much hope then! How could half of them failed?! Still feeling bad for them because I really think they were putting in the shift initially but just couldn't take off..
100% Paulinho so anytime I hear or see someone talking about "working hard to achieve your dreams" I can haul him out and give a counter argument where failing your way up the ladder is entirely possible. I could make a fortune off of self help books and vids for the lazy and reinvest a portion of it into buying someone worthy of a place in the team
I think Chiriches could be a far better player under Pochettino than he showed here before. His weaknesses look to be the things Poch is good at coaching into players, and his strengths are things Poch seems to like in a centre back.
Chadli hands down. I think it turned out to be a mistake letting him go to be honest, at least in the short term. We're alright now but when our options off the bench were like N'Jie etc. it made me think we'd have been better off keeping Chadders.
Even though Paulinho is doing alright for Barca apparently, he just never suited the PL so would be a flop all over again I think. The rest of them were all crap tbh. Capoue was alright but still wouldn't have him back.
Chadli was the only one I was disappointed when he left as he was a good option and contributed to our run to 3rd place that season. Inconsistent at times but able to offer something that we're lacking in depth of now.
The others I was disappointed how they worked out at spurs.
