That maybe true we will see, the simple truth is that in three transfer windows I believe MP has only brought in a very small number of players with PL experience, that is the chance you take, and sadly our past record with recent overseas players is not that good.
Whilst you're right, the strategy for transfers has changed since July 2018 and if you look at the players MP has brought in only Perez has been a 'failure' so far
My opinion is different, we are still conceding too many goals a the back since the day MP arrived, in the middle he has brought in Sanchez, Wilshire, Anderson, nothing to write home about there either, up front is wait and see along with Fornals.
My opinion is no stand out players so far and has not brought in the players we need.
Giving Zab /Arthur new contracts and making Cresswell Captain has not gone down that great either with a lot of fans?
I do not look at the team as any better than last year at the moment, certainly no big improvement in my eyes.
We have much the same as last year with a few unproven PL footballers, we will be lucky if 1/2 of them make the grade, as normal for us. How many stand out players have we had in the last 5 seasons, probably one, Payet.
£ for £ Perez was better than Chico, with outlay and wages.
