Thing is, if you owned the club and the manager said you think the midfield needs improving, you would probably say ok, you have Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, keita, Milner, ox, jones (and now bajcetic), get rid of a couple and we will see. We ain’t gonna pay for 8 midfielders wages when you only pick 3.
Then why loan melo on the final day and pay his wages?
The thing is that when we needed cb couple of season ago, and we didnt enforce. That was a mistake.
This summer the signs were there, the numbers were there but some were too young, some were injury prone. Then you factor in out of form players. We didnt replace gini either.
I think we made a mistake, and it shouldn't have been that way because we made the same mistake before and we didn't learn from it.
Now who is to blame for the mistake, that i do not know but i can see that it was a mistake.
