Agreed. I’m totally bemused that we were not able to seemingly buy a better centre back than what we already had. I had high hopes for Vestergaard but he cannot get a shirt. WTAF is that all about.
The fact that we sold one and loaned out two wingers and only brought in one, yet play with two pretty much every week is beyond stupid. When Elyounoussi and Redmond are playing we look to the bench and there are no other players remotely similar to come on and shape things up. God knows what JWP is but he ain’t a winger. And Long is already on the pitch.
If one of those two gets injured then what? We have to play an entirely different system? Ridiculous. Not that would disrupt any progress it has to be said.
The lack of goals from the other offensive players is a joke. Just the 3 goalscorers all season and two of them are unlikely to get any more due to where they actually play.
I saw Le Tiss on Sky and when asked if we’d have money to spend in January he was of the opinion that there wouldn’t be. Makes sense on the basis of Ings’ initial loan move deferring a permanent move until the summer.
