    Wasn't the 'cluster approach' meant to prevent situations like this?
    I think cluster**** would be a better description.

      Nothing to do with how much we have spent, it's what we spend it on... The striker situation was obviously the most critical and should have been the priority from the start, not leaving it till the final day.
      When did the striker we tried to sign fail his medical? Was that today?

      Tony's a hugely successful gambler, doesn't mean he wins every time though does it?!! And the football market is a crazy one. Looks like this time his gambling hasn't paid off.

      That's over simplifying the whole process.

      It's hard to convince players to join a newly promoted team to the PL as they want as close to a certainty as possible when it comes to playing in that league for the length of their contract

      This is shown by the examples of players turning us (and Newcastle) down and preferring to stay put, and Tammy Abraham even picked an established club over Newcastle or us.

      It's not necessarily down to wages offered, or the price of the transfer fee and the standard of player we need may just decide they don't want to come here so what can you do as a club?
      But if your not prepared to pay the going rate to begin with your always going ton accused of doing it on the cheap and it's clearly backfired it had been 4.5 months

      We've topped up, big time.

      And so it slams shut, roll on January.

      difference between us and those two clubs is that they can and most likely will sack their managers and you could see it leading to some improvement, they're not amazing teams but they've got some players there who can make a difference. If we had Benteke or Hernandez we'd be fine, but we don't.
      Correct.

      4.5 months spent scouring spreadsheets and European leagues, led to a case of couldnt see the wood for the trees. Pace and quality up front to PL level was required on 17 April. Boro's disaster told us everything we needed to know. Apart from a few, most were calling for that back then, repeatedly.

      Clubs no bigger than us - Watford, Hudd and Burnley simply got on with improving their squad deficiencies.

      Having forwards that look like scoring helps too.
