I was saying top quality players are rarely available in January windows.
Aside from Torres, who was thought of as a genuinely top player at the time of the transfer, who else has moved mid season? There's Costa, but Chelsea tried to get rid of him in the summer, and eventually agreed to sell him back to Atletico in September, so it's a bit different.
So you have bought into the Glazernomics of "there's no value in the winter transfer window"
And you excuse/argument for not doing anything in the last 4 or 5 summer tranfer windows bar a few lastminute.com tranfers would be??
We all acknowledged that about 8 players needed to go last summer AND be replaced
Even Ole told you that
Then he gave them one last chance so wasn't going to replace them
Then the English transfer window shut and now Ed Woodward has let them go leaving Ole muttering something about "giving youth a chance" and "some we have let go o9n loan but they will come back better players" FFS
This club is acting like it has big cash flow problems.I would love to know the truth
