    They had Negredo in fairness who still scored 9 goals in a piss poor side.
    Ah that's my bad, they did sign a half decent striker and still only got 27. We are so screwed

      Although we may not like the market - it is the market. Player costs and wages are heading in one direction - up, fuelled by ever increasing TV money. We cannot say 'no' alone and not live with the likely negative consequences.

      That said, I am fervently behind the club and all they are and continue to be.

      I truly hope that among the players we have, one or two emerge, step up and shine to make a real difference in the Premier League.

      Transfer window + new Taylor Swift single = most boring week of the year on Twitter. Please just let it end

      The relevance of the old days is you probably wouldn't moan about us only signing some biblical-looking character from Inter Milan if you'd been used to us going through Colchester's bins in search of anyone over 6ft to keep us on a par with a semi-pro Donny team at the arse end of the entire league

      Its a shame that some of the other clubs do not follow suit and take a stand against this way of doing business. We just might see a return to some kind of sanity.
      I understand your point, but when clubs are owned by billionaires, they are able to pay these fees and wages without a problem. Another 20k per week in wages amounts to 1m a year. That's loose change to these people.

      I can't see a point when money coming into football will ever decrease - slow down a bit maybe, but not decrease.

      Some people bought in wholeheartedly when they told us we are Premier League ready. They believed.

      Those people are now disappointed obviously.

      Appreciate your comments. but we have not been unlucky by having a striker break his leg with 1 day of transfer window to go. We have been looking for months. Last season if you count Elvis and Akpon we had 5. Now in our toughest season we cant even get one on bench.

      I think most of us would have been happy to spend half as much....... everyone knew we needed ONE striker, it was the obvious ONE thing we needed 4 months ago, 9 months ago, 12 months ago etc.

      We did good business in all the little areas but our ONE important signing just hasn't happened at all. Fingers crossed the team aren't happy with our goal scoring so far this season (not just in the PL but cups and pre-season too).

      This is the roller coaster ride we all signed up for. Nobody every said it was going to be easy or pretty. But you wouldn't want to miss it.
