    I often use that response to "Hindsight is a wonderful thing", mine being ".. but foresight is golden".

    But in the last day of the transfer window all bets are off. Seen what happened at Chelsea today ?

    If you are forced to leave it till the last day don't bother deconstructing it beyond left it was left till the last day.

    I know that doesn't fill a journalists copy but it is what it is.

      Because the deal was not sealed and delivered?
      And if we waited, we may have still missed out if he still decided to stay rather than go out on loan to us, but it could also have meant that we also missed out on a 3rd choice keeper too which could prove to be a vital addition between now and the January window.

      Deals had to be agreed and submitted before 11pm, and the extension to 1am is to get the paperwork completed and submitted, not to decide on which of several options open to either party is then taken up

      If Krul was for sale.

      Do you have a magic clock ?

      It's such a shame the club were blissfully unaware that it was an area they had to strengthen, it's not like they have spent any time prior to deadline day to try to get someone in

      It's like they never even bothered a few months ago to try to lure Tammy Abraham here, or the striker who failed the medical a few weeks back (Dwamena) No, it was all last minute due to a complete oversight by the club

      Then find a keeper that does !! Pretty sure that would be easier to find a keeper vying for a place amongst 2 others than getting a striker on loan whose guaranteed a starting place at 70k a week !!
      Sorry, I was in no way implying that I think the second loan should have been used for a keeper.
      We've known we've needed a couple of strikers for months, yet our approach of lowballing and pi**ing clubs off has been embarrassing at best. Blocking ourselves by using our other loan option was indeed a f**king master stroke, when Krul signed I felt certain we had a permanent striker in the bag.
      By the time January hits we're gonna be needing ten wins to survive. Tony needs to find a better recruitment team by then.

      That confidence was clearly misplaced.
      Could be a Big mistake to make at this level !!

      We knew all day about Krul and yet it wasn't announced officially until just before the deadline. Obviously the club were thinking about this and didn't make the loan official until they were pretty certain of landing a striker. Get real, people.
      Nope.

      Well, if they've got an agreement with the club for a top player, I would also have taken that bet. And if they hadn't who would they have gone for on loan at short notice? Niasse was busy mucking up our friends in Croydon. Or his agent was.
      Nope.
