Moise Kean was a statement signing for us no doubt. However that doesn't mean we should be relying on him this season to be our 'savior'. PSG and Chelsea are the only teams having any real success with young strikers and in PSG's case that's because his name is Kylian Mbappe and in Chelsea's case it's basically down to the transfer ban and Giroud's advanced age. Without the ban I think they sign an established striker. We had a great window yes, but you win games by scoring goals. We don't have the talent, at least on current form, to create enough goals, I personally don't place all of that on Marco's shoulders.

Personally think we've got the sixth best squad in the league. For me the trouble is purely the manager and his insistence to go down the wings. Reminds me of Moyes for man u when they played Fulham. We have some cracking footballers and possibly the best squad of my lifetime yet this is the first time I have genuinely feared relegation. The managers I remember are Smith onwards and Silva is in a league of his own competence wise. Smith was shocking but you could at least see what he was trying, Moyes was too safe/old school and Martinez too arrogant (his outdated physio degree), Koeman never really got Everton and was stifled by Walsh who was out of his depth yet Silva takes the biscuit. I'd like to think I know above average football wise yet I know I'm no where near manager level but I believe I'd do a better job than him. He's fecking clueless, think everyone on the board is in agreement that Sigurdssen just isn't right for the job asked of him yet Silva persists.

I know you'll never agree with me but we really haven't got the sixth best squad in the league. We're paper thin in key positions regardless of some of the big bucks we've thrown around, we've signed a lot of mediocre shite. The fact that Schneiderlin plays as soon as we have injuries in midfield - weak. The fact that Tosun is our back up striker - weak. The fact that Keane and Mina are our fist choice CBs with only Holgate in reserve - fml! We're not a strong side/squad in all respects of the word. And yeah, I agree with you now, the manager isn't good enough either. I just wanted to see if he could kick on from a good run last season.

Leicester and WHU have some real gems in their squad, if they continue bulding they will easily take over us - that is to say if they haven't already done so.

But they'll still have the problem we've had over the years; as soon as those gems become good enough to take them to the next level some "big" six team will come in and offer them stupid amounts to go and sit on their bench.
