    And not a single one of them has improved us. No adequate replacements for Walker, Rose, Verthongen, Dembele or Eriksen - and no backup striker. I would call that an unmitigated failure in our transfer dealings. And at what cost? Simply huge sums paid out - and very little return.

    People were saying the same about Commoli around the time Ramos got sacked, then a year later a few of the signings looked bargains.

    Im hoping Ndombele, Sess, Lo Celso, Bergwijn etc. Do the same.

    That's the best part of £300m (you left out Lo Celso's initial loan fee).
    Only one of them is in the current starting 11 and he's about to be replaced. Another would have likely gotten in if he wasn't injured.

    At the very least, it looks like good succession planning

    But Levy is a tight wad that hasn't invested in any players, remember

    Despite all the criticism on here, I think that Jorge Mendes is doing an excellent job as DoF

    It's interesting to note how our transfer activity (and rumours of links) have shot up since Trevor Birch started with us....

    I think our transfer activity has improved once our focus was no longer on the stadium build .. no question for me, it consumed the club's attention to a detrimental effect on transfers and contracts ..

    Birch is running the Lodge, so I doubt that it has much to do with him
