OK, so we have our window deals.
We are in deep deep trouble and we get a midfielder who has barely played and never at even the French top level. We then get a winger/attacking midfielder who at 25 is promising (stop laughing !!) and never made a single PL appearance for Spurs. Somehow these two are supposed to save us.
Well even the most optimistic amongst you will know that neither can do this. It just looks to me without question that we are preparing to go down. Do not give me that rubbish about give them a chance. The FACT is we needed so much better, so much better. Saying so and so is better than Bannan means nothing, it is crap talk, it is defeatist talk, just like from Lambert and Lerner.
Lerner has shown his cards this window, total spending since MON went, NET £3M and wages well down, why is he not spending, does he have the cash ? Is the club in serious financial trouble and we are not being told ?
No, I do not believe that, I believe Lerner has had enough of the toy, trying to spend the bare min and simply ‘hoping’ for survival doing not a lot to get it. We even had the OS tweeting to claim a 25 year old is promising, it is desperate desperate stuff and all the empty seats at Villa Park tells it’s own story.
How on earth can this squad stay up, answer it can not and that suits the failure of an owner Lerner perfectly fine.
How he thinks losing all that TV money is right, I will never know.
