Derby away

Exactly, and it's not like this is some 'wise after the event' scenario, it was blatantly obvious at the time. A new deal for Fox was odd, three years for Traore was a joke. To do them both was just totally stupid and devoid of any logic. Just another two unneeded players draining money out the club year after year. Sums up how we've been run for ages.

To be fair pretty much all of our business this summer has been a bit dodgy. Kasami, Lica, Dumitru, Lam, Carayol, Stojkovic and Traore have all been crap. The jury is still out on Bendtner and only Perquis and Velios have done OK. Again though, if you're forced to sign freebies and castoffs you're going to struggle to get any decent quality in.

That's true but how many of those signings did we actually need? I think two, three at most. Lam at least is young and can cover a few positions and Vellios was fair enough as we needed another forward but do the rest add anything?

 

We could have done without Lica, Dimitru, and Carayol and just kept hold of Paterson and Ward. We could have told Celtic to piss off and kept De Vries instead of Stojkovic. Troare obviously not needed at all, Kasami and Bentner debatable at best. Even Perquis, who seems alright considering he'd already semi-retired, wasn't really needed because we had so many defenders already. Now we've got Hobbs on good money sat at home every week so we're paying two players to do the job of one. Again.

 

We need to stop signing players we don't need and stop selling players for little money unless they're being replaced by better. Before every signing we need to ask:

 

Is this player significantly better than the ones we already have in this position?

Does this player have his best years ahead of him?

Has this player been available for 90% of matches for the last three years?

 

If the answer to any of those is 'no' then let's not bother.

You missed off Henderson who was so bad that we had to bring Stojkovic in.

I must say the two keepers we have at the moment are both equally shit. Have we got a decent one in the under 23 team? What happened to that Russian **** Evitimov who everyone keeps saying "oh he is only young" - he must be 40 by now

Wasn't Henderson originally brought in as cover for De Vries? Either way he's garbage. Against Wigan he looked absolutely petrified.
