I obviously brought Hazard into the equation as he is one of the very few elite number 10s in world football i.e. a legitimate Coutinho replacement.
Do you actually understand your own arguments?
And if you think spending over £100 million on Eriksen (which is what he would have cost us) over strengthening the squad as a whole then you are bonkers.
We've had a great window strengthening the squad significantly without needing to replace Coutinho with an equally expensive number 10.
Let's be happy about this.
I understand my arguments perfectly fine, obviously. Do you understand yours?
You're looking a bit daft here because you were saying Keita was a 10 yesterday and now you're saying hazard is. Then you ask me if I understand
. Do you actually watch football mate? Neither of them are 10s.
Hazard is not a number 10, doesn't play in the middle, and doesn't play in the midfield. We need somebody who can play as part of the midfield 3 but be the creative one from central positions. That's why we were signing fekir. Now I'll ask you again. Do you understand that??
Hazard would be in the same discussion as Salah or Mane so bringing him into the mix was just random and pretty stupid. So we will move on from there.
Ahh now we're getting somewhere. So in your opinion then we were on a budget and we used the coutinho money to strengthen 2 or 3 positions rather than go out and buy a like for like replacement? Interesting.
I find it interesting because heimdall for example, the little weasel who I suspect is liking your posts, he tells us that the money is irrelevant and that our owners will back the manager regardless.
In fact, several posters on here repeatedly state 'if we don't spend money or sign anybody else then that is jurgen klopps decision, not the owners'. But you think otherwise? Good. Me too.
What annoys me though is, it shouldn't be a case of do we sign an expensive like for like number 10 for coutinho, or do we divide the money and bring in a keeper, a 6 and an 8. It should be all four if we want. We've had years of negative net spends (what was klopps net before this summer?), we've got the tv deal money, we've got the prize money from getting to the final of the CL, and we've secured it again for this season. The money should be there.
If you think spending 100m (figure is just randomly made up by you) on eriksen is poor business that's fine, you're entitled to your opinion and i understand it. I was using him as an example anyway.
But what I do know is, if we had Christian eriksen in our team going into this season we would be much, much stronger and as equally important, Spurs who are one of our rivals would be much, much weaker too.
