Re: Incredible signing.
Martinez's transfer record at Wigan was pretty bad. While he did well for us in signing Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku, most of his other signings were abject failures. He also extended the contracts of Mirallas and Besic, which says enough about his judgement.
I'll grant you that his successors were even less canny in their puchases, but that doesn't make Martinez a genius in the transfer market.
VVD cost Southampton the same as we paid for Niasse. Case closed.
It's a shame Roberto wasn't backed to the same level his successor's were. We would've had a CB partnership of Stones and VVD and a front four of Rom, Ross, Geri and Payet.
Still would've had Tim Howard in nets though, so there is that.
