Should’ve loaned gazzaniga out and signed lee grant or rob green or similar, if there was a will there there’s a way
He has done an incredible job overall. My only concerns are tiredness, injury and how we cope when teams park the bus. We seemed to struggle a bit with the latter last season. I'm glad that we no longer sign just anyone to bolster the numbers but outside of our very good first eleven - not so sure. Remember our cup run last season? We struggled when we made changes.In relation to the ITK we have had, we are continually told to take it with a pinch of salt. There might be issues shifting players, the window closing early for us forcing difficult decisions etc. But in relation to your post we have retained the services of our manager and key striker with nice big significant contracts. We have the best training facilities, a burgeoning academy and are going into the newest and most exciting stadium in the World. Who did that? Alan Sugar? Irving Scholar? We may have Joe Lewis as an "owner", but we are a club doing things the right way.
Levy is the principle reason for that. He stumbled at the start with Hoddle and Graham, he might be a pain in the arse with his tactics, but look what they have built. History offers perspective.
We've certainly ticked that box so far this window Things are looking up!So the main lesson is that buying shitty players can be a hindrance and we should probably try and avoing doing that in the future. It'll be interesting to see how the relatively new setup fares.
