    Another take on the Crooks view

    Posted by Gerald on 18/9/2023, 6:31:53

    We have spent the money we were able to spend badly and we donít even have a full squad.

    We spent £5m on a full back who we didnít need and now donít play.

    We rejected a perfectly good goalkeeper and wasted £3m on another.

    The money spent on these two alone should have been spent on Hamer or an equivalent who is clearly PL quality and creates and scores goals.

    We allowed a striker who has pace and movement to leave on loan when we are clearly missing that up front without him.

    While his actual comments are very wrong and misses the real point of who we are I donít think the manager can hide behind them every week. I donít think RE and the recruitment team have done as well as they needed to this time round.

    Makes you wonder if the loss of Jones and the chap who went to Swansea was more important in terms of recruitment than anyone cared to acknowledge.

    As many have said over the weekend. Are we really any better now than the XIís that started against Watford and Sunderland at home?

    Or won in Sheffield?

      Should give the team/squad plenty of encouragement going forward.

        1 Iím pretty sure we do need Giles and will play him a lot.

        2 You think Forest were offering us Horvath for free then do you? Presumably we decided he wasnít worth the amount they wanted for him. Might even have been more than we paid for Kaminski.

        So itís a heck of a stretch to say we wasted £3m on Kaminski.

        3 Hamer was more than £8m. According to the Coventry Telegraph ď The 26-year-old looks set to join the Premier League new boys in a transfer worth £15 million after the clubs reached an agreement over a fee.Ē

        So neither logic nor maths are your strong points.

          Even if we had spent double the money we have, £40 million is nowhere near enough to be able to compete at this level.

          Forest spent over £150 million to just about survive last year, and the squad with which they got promoted with was far more valuable than what we had.

          People look at Brighton assembling a squad for relative peanuts, but the reality is they have spent millions building a global scouting network and system that finds these gems.

          If you put those starting XIs from Watford and Sunderland in this league I don't think it would be much different. Alternatively if you put the current starting XI in the Championship I think we'd be a different side at that level.

            In reality, he is probably correct, weíve used the Premier League funds to secure the future of our club, rather than to secure our future in the Prem. if you asked me now to put my house on whether weíll stay up or not, it would be the latter. But we have a chance, and weíre good at miracles

              Four games in and you reach that profound conclusion?
              I assume the correct opening sequence would be all wins?
              Jones and the 'chap who went to Swansea' had the same recruitment team that we have now.
              Maybe you'd prefer we spent live Everton have? Did you watch them? Dire

                      His replacement was in the pub pre Fulham. Nice bloke.

                          We'd of (sic) won 4/4 if Horvath, Taylor and Campbell had of been playing this season.

                          Even though two of them barely played in the second half of last season, in Div 2 ......

                      There's no balance to your post - it's all whinge, whining and whataboutery. Recruitment was spot on for the budget, hasn't over-extended us and sets us up if we do go down so that we come back stronger. All while KR has a makeover, PC gets built and our future is secure for the next 25 years.

                                this is why i strongly believe we're going to stay up......

                                pressure will be on teams that have spent millions and not much to show for it

                                  We wonít stay up if the game plan is to stay in our own half till the other team score then desperately try to salvage something

                                      If you sit and let decent teams have 78% possession they will take the p*as and start showboating.

                                        Only they didn't "take the p*as". Whatever that is.

                                    cloud cloudcoco land if you think clubs get transfers 100% right (all the time)....besides Kaminski wasn't entrely to blame for the goal and actually done pretty well since he joined ,100% better than Hovarth

                                    looks to me like some are just trying instill negativelty here from non issues ....
