So what we can see is their transfer policy is spot on then , when the club really wants someone they go and get him even it means increasing the fee - good to see you recognise how good they have become
Sacked Kenny - sorry but it wasn’t working out with him back as manager , the mistake there was giving him the role permanently but clearly Kenny holds no grudges
Suarez - sorry how did they abandon Suarez ? This is the same Suarez that disgraced the name of the club three times due to biting and using racist slurs.
7 years - do you even bother to look into it ? The owners new to the sport put the club in the hands of people to run the football side and commercial side , the commercial side has gone from strength to strength - the football side for 6 years had ups and downs , Cup win , nearly misses in others , back into CL then , Comolli then Ayre until Edwards arrived and also Klopp -
people sit there playing computer games and thinking it’s real life- they see that City can have £200mil players on the bench and demand that we have the same
We are about to romp to our first title in 30 years destroying the league and you want to cry and point fingers at cups we didn’t win and a player who hasn’t even been bought by anyone yet and a transfer window that hasn’t even shut yet.
The Werner deal has been agreed. Just not by us.
Nobody has demanded 200m quid be spent on players to sit on the bench. All we're asking is that the squad is strengthened, because it needs to be. So we don't go 7 years winning nothing again, or even 30 years hoping to win one trophy. Because you can safely bet our rivals will be doing it in the next transfer window. We used to laugh at Spurs for not investing in their squad. Now it's us that have that problem and it's not a joke. We cannot expect to spend 5m on teenagers and expect to compete for 4 major trophies next season. Only Norwich spent less than us last summer, and they're about to be relegated.
Its true that the commercial side has gone from strength to strength. Record revenues here, record profits there, lucrative deal with Nike on the way, and yet we're still prioritising this competition over that competition because we don't have the players to compete on multiple fronts, like the best teams in Europe have every year. Doesn't make sense.
As for Kenny not working out, he brought us to two cup finals, won us our only trophy for 13 years, and got us back into Europe, despite having to deal with the 8 game ban for Suarez based on no evidence. The next season after Kenny left, we won no trophies and didn't qualify for Europe. The following year, our esteemed owners signed the laziest player in world football to replace Suarez, and we know how that went. It was 5 years after that, before silverware was added to the cabinet.
Our transfer policy is largely dependent on players such as VVD are willing to wait around for us to sign them up. In his case it worked, in most cases it doesn't.
When we do win the league, all the credit should go to Jürgen, as he is the difference between where we are, and where the owners would have us be without him.
