Players like Joe Allen, Jonjo Shelvey, Troy Deeney, Marc Albrighton, Nathan Redmond, Tom Cleverley etc. these are the type of players that are realistic within our budget. As good as this Dendoncker is, he is destined for greater things and given our current situation we cannot afford to take a risk on a 22 year old who has never played in the premier league and at £20m its a lot of money for someone unproven.
we've done it before and we bought the likes of Matthew Upson and Lucas Neill who vastly improved the squad and kept us up.
we should of probably been in for coq, at 10m he could of done a job, him and shelvey would of improved our starting 11, balanced our squad and almost certainly give us enough bite and control in possession to easily beat the drop
tbh i think we'll survive the drop anyway
yeah really sensible post , how is it ? Would be if you was in the championship looking for some premiership experience on the way up . But why would you want them if you was a premiership team looking to achieve at the next level .
