It's now getting beyond that of mid-July and the only activity that we've been involved in is the expected sale of Didier zokora to Sevilla, interesting stuff I know. Now, I'm happy with our current squad and could live with the 'old' faces of the first team should we go onto play Liverpool without any new acquisitions.
What I'm a bit concerned about is the players Harry has tried to sign; it seems as though he still thinks he's managing Championship football. Instead of the big money Madrid players we all thought we were going for, we entered the race for two Sheffield United defenders. Sorry, OK we need cover at the back, but surely we are not going to spend a huge amount on two players that really aren't worth the value stuck on them. Harry wants to sign another right back but the fact we have Corluka, Chimbonda and Hutton as cover really does surprise me- explanations please.
I also question the chase for Peter Crouch. The player has got to be one of the most overrated strikers I've ever come across; if he was foreign he'd be be shipped out quicker than Helda Postiga was back in the day. Yeah OK the guy would add height to the team but seriously lacks in pace and power. He didn't score to many last season and wouldn't be an improvement on any of our current strikers, so again why sign him?
I do trust Harry, but seriously, he needs to play the transfer market a bit- what's the word- BETTER.
