Clue I get your point pal, however at circa £25m he’s a huge gamble for a player whose basically had half a good season.
We have a squad that is majority made up of the best squad from the championship 2 seasons ago. And as most can see those squads in the prem that persist with championship players generally end up heading back toward the championship. If the board has the desire to push on and establish the club as a mid to top half team then in my opinion that £25m would be better spent elsewhere.
Yes there are a few that can step up but there’s a very real reason for second season syndrome.
Look at the way Burnley, norwhich sheff United and West Brom have recruited and always struggle.
Let’s see what Ivan Toney does next season after the momentum fades.
It’s easy for Diaz as he’s playing week in week out, he wouldn’t do that here so I think £25m to sit on the bench is rather excessive.

£25m is a bit on the high side for a player at the end of his contract, but I guess it would come down to how much other clubs would be willing to shell out for him. Pity Tyro is injured now, as we could have offered him as a bit of a makeweight, plus Greenwood and Summerville on loan which could both soften their blow of losing Brereton-Diaz, and help those lads get more game time.

Brereton-Diaz can play right across the front line, so would probably get decent time on the pitch most games. That said, we might not even be interested in him and he’ll probably end up at Brighton anyway.

Bowen, also was said not to be worth the 18 that was spent on him coming from hull, that's totally flawed now as his stock has risen well

Our workplace now dictates that these are the prices to be paid to accrue the big lolly of the beast that is the EPL

I think Diaz is worth the punt, as we sadly cannot give the time aquired to develop players, as games means points needs goals to survive

We can't continue to rely on Victors hunches to establish ourselves in prem.

Chris, very good point re Bowen. It’s crazy that championship players are banded around at £25m. I see the young Spanish striker from espanyol is having his medical today another for the u23’s!
Apparently orta is in talks for Kamara and Nandez AGAIN!
It would be one hell of a window if we managed to get them both in and maybe a loan as well.
Be an idea to offer helder costa and Rodrigo to Valencia for Guedes to play in the 10 role for us unless Joffy could make that his position.

I hope this Fernandez guy is the real deal but VO really needs to focus now on signings players that can go straight into 1st team

VO also needs to urgently address situation re Charlie Cresswell only having 18 months left on his contract.

Baz, just because we don’t read about stuff in the papers it doesn’t mean Orta and team are not working on it already.
