Oh fucking shut upSeems to be an influx of mass delusion and collective amnesia when it comes to talking about this transfer window.
People believing that Daniel Levy has had an epiphany (or have forgotten every other window, especially the last two) and has now decided to break the habit of his entire tenure here and suddenly he will,
A) Get business done early and make sure our manager has his first choice targets, irrespective of their market value and will pay what is needed to secure them rather than caring about getting the best deal.
B) Break our transfer record, which currently sits at below £40m.
Neither of which is going to happen imo, both of which needs to happen if we want to improve on, or even stay where we are, in terms of league position.
Now, I could just be a cynic when it comes to Levy and I hope I am proven wrong, I really do because like I said before, I think we are at a crossroads as a club, especially with the new stadium.
It's put up or shut up time basically as far as ENIC and Levy are concerned, they have built us this fantastic ground that I am incredibly grateful for but none of that will mean a thing if we are regressing as a football club on the pitch going forwards.
And I can hear people saying "But we made it to the CL final under this model" and my answer to that is, get your heads out of the sand and look at the bigger picture, be realistic, this teams chances of replicating that with no top quality signings is slim, very slim imo.
It's time this club started winning trophies again.
