The question i think needs answering, is if we hadn't done so well last year, would we have bought anyone this summer? The whole management team and owners admitted in the run up to champions league that we overachieved last season, one or two year ahead of schedule in the "master plan". Does that mean they were always planning on bedding down last years signings within this window? I very much doubt it, and i expect (understandably) that summer plans were put to back of mind while everyones focus was on the run in at the end of the season.
I agree with the sentiment we shouldn't be buying players for the sake of it, and we should all back Juergen and his waiting game - its paid dividends over the last 18 months. With that said, we need to face the fact that we need to catch up with City who have the depth to challenge on all fronts, which is where were lacking. Salah and Bobbys dips in form in the spring cost us in the end as Divock wasnt yet stepping up to the plate.
I hope Brewster, Ox and Keita can all pitch in with double figures this season to reduce the reliance on the front line. We should know soon enough, as I don't expect the fab three to settle back into the swing of things, until after the first international break.
