      It's that simple.

      A last minute loan signing, just feels a bit desperate.
      Make no mistake, REALLY hope this guy can make some impact.
      But is that the type of strengthening/planning we need to overcome Citeh?

      People starting to blame Jürgen, which is a bit sad.  Needs more backing.
      It was desperate but understandable.

      He may surprise you all but probably not.

      You won’t overcome City this year anyway.

      Who’s blamed Klopp? Not sure I’ve read that one?

      If you don't like how the midfield issues have been addressed, maybe take it up with the folks that are in charge of transfers...I believe that's Julian Ward, Jürgen Klopp and Mike Gordon unless I'm mistaken.

      Oh yes of course. I'll use my open line to Julian and Jürgen and express my opinion eh ... because that's all it is. And I'm entitled to one.

      We got it wrong ... our loyalty to injury prone midfielders has backfired. That's a fact. If you don't like that fact, or my opinion ... just scroll on.

      Why don't you call Jürgen and Julian and ask them why they were scrambling round for a midfielder in the last 2 hours of the window when they've had all Summer to sell the injury prone ones and buy one or two who A. Would improve us and B. Be able to contribute on a regular basis.

      I'm not knocking Jürgen. Im not 'blaming him' . I'm simply saying mistakes have been made in my opinion. And our failure/refusal to address them left us scrambling around at the last minute.

      No better than what we have, apparently. Unless they are the next De Bruyne, what's the point?

      Maybe being 30 and fitted with a pacemaker might not be the sort of player they are looking at

      "We have too many midfielders who are older and injury prone"

      "We should have signed a 30yo with a pacemaker"

      You could be right, although I suspect we might well have had a closer look had we not left our business to the last minute. It will an interesting one to look at come the end of the season. Will the 30yr.old with a pacemaker signed on a free have added more value to his team than our injured/sick £50m man?

      I wish the lad well to come back from that event and to play in the EPL and play well is very telling about what sort of person he is.

      I know I've said I would have happily seen us sign him. But at the same time, shame he didn't show a bit more loyalty to Brentford, they were pretty much the only team willing to take a chance on him to return to Premier League football, for him to then walk out on them 6 months later.
