Had managed to block the memory of a lot of those players out, just shows how crucial it is we get the right striker in this summer.

Such a shame we didn't get the keep hold of Demba Ba for longer.

No, we have always been let down by the owners.

The bulk of that list were Fat Sam's purchases.

Goal prevention was his game.....

Behave yourself. You've obviously forgotten Alex Bunbury. Inexcusable omission on your part mate.

That's eye opening, Cast...

Got to have a lot to do with having poor creative players around them.

My general impression of all these "flops" is not missing lots of chances, but not getting too many scoring opportunities.

During the earlier part of their reign we've usually been a poor team relying mainly on having had a good keeper and a solid pair of centre backs to keep us afloat.
What like Lanzini and Payet!?!

We are 90% certain will get Haller so we will have Haller as 1st Choice, Chico 2nd, Silva 3rd and Hugill 4th which I hope Hugill will go and West Ham looking into former Chelsea loanee, Hugiann bloke for a season loan with option to buy.

I am probably the only one but I dont really want Higuain. never thought he was suited to the PL game. Would rather have a younger striker than that.
