Fans - spend millions on a midfielder please
Club - look to bring in a proven midfielder
Fans - why are we spending £80mil on him when we can spend it on x player
That's just the usual. Remember there was a gang of experts who would spend their time slagging Gini and essentially call him useless (''what does he even do on the pitch?''). Those same geniuses are now blaming the club for not replacing the guy who ''did nothing on the pitch''. Walking, breathing paradoxes.
The funny part is that you can't even apply the ''hindsight is 20/20'' saying to this lot because even with hindsight they still get about 90% of everything they say wrong. If Mac Allister indeed signs for us and his role is not as flashy as this lot needs a player to be to notice him yet he's still key to our success, they will still call it a failed transfer and it will be ''funds we could've spent on Bellingham or whatever player they'll be fancying by then''.
This rumoured new DOF is also already a failure despite not even signing for us yet.
A month ago Salah needed shipping off and he wasn't scoring because he was finished and the club should've never gave him that extension, but had the club not renewed him in the summer it would be the opposite and they'd be attacking the club right now. Now that the team is working as a unit a bit better and Mo is banging them in, as he has done most of the season really if we're being honest, they are completely silent and won't even acknowledge it and guess when is the next time this lot will resurface with the ''he's finished'' theory? Exactly, the next time Mo doesn't score for 3 games in a row.
It's hopeless. I don't think its ''fans'' as in the whole fanbase. It's just a very vocal group that mainly operates on twitter and some of them spill over onto forums.
