Think your over complicating things a wee bit TET, I understand with buying any player there is a risk factor.Boyata
not the greatest cb in world
imo miles better stronger faster than any of our current centre backs, but still error prone in our system.
let go free but next dude is mark down due to restrictions on wages imposed by subsidy system at top tier leagues
I believe we first of all will need a manager were you can feel comfortable and have a trust in.
Second we would need to invest in a few players we can look at for keeping for the long term, instead of the sell on value we are currently working under.
This has bought us great success of late on the domestic front but still the same failures in Europe remain.
We have backed ourselves into a corner now, with so many potentially going to leave next summer, hopefully not to many beforehand.
We still have a fairly good crop of players who will still remain hopefully and that new quality should still keep us strong, but in the world of football things can always change very quickly, and you would expect a board to be ready to handle and plan for such changes
