    Honestly enough is enough. Jan 2018 and Summer 2018 windows were beyond a joke but this window has to be the worst so far.

    Despite spending approx £12/13 million, we are WEAKER! How on earth can you spend that much money and end up in a weaker position? The planning from the board, management and recruitment dept has been scandalous.

    We've missed out on target after target after target. Any player we do sign now will literally be a panic buy or our 4th choice target.

    If this window doesn't make people realise that the board are unfit for duty then I'm not sure what will!

    It's possible because our outgoing players were worth far more than that.

    Tierney was £25m, Fulham were willing to pay £9m for Boyata 12 months ago, while not ours we no longer have the services of Benkovic (£13m), Burke (£13m) Weah (£10m to Lille), Toljan (£4.5m) Lustig while struggling to play at the level he once did is still an international RB that set up our Treble Treble winning goal.

    We're upwards of £50 million worth of players down in the squad, it's undeniable that we have regressed. Not all of which needed to be replaced on permanent transfers but where possible it would be best for continuity and achieving the aims of reselling assets.

    Most people accept our position in the market at the moment. Had Tierney been sold for £25 million and Lennon been given 2/3rds of that to spend in our key areas (we're still a LB & RB short in the squad, strong DM having missed out on Harper & the Ecuadorian and a LW as he clearly doesn't fancy Sinclair) then there would be few complaints.

    The reality is they haven't spent a single penny of the Tierney fee.

    Spot on! No one is expecting the full £25 million to be spent immediately, would be delighted if we got £15m to spend on RB, LB and CB.
