Whilst I am in no way complaining about our transfer dealings so far (I'm over the moon to be fair) I still think there is going to be one signing that is going to make the football world (at least the premiership) go wow. Whereas our signings so far have been good and will improve the areas bought for, I don't think there are any worldys. YET.
And i also think we need to move on from Sigurdson now. 50million is too much for him. He's not THAT much of a game changer, despite being Swanseas main man.

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid the say that the football world doesn't say things like "wow" and clubs do not send out "messages of intent", and they are never on "red alert".}

Well done Ed002. Very informative reply. as ever.

Sorry to disagree Kingo but in todays market and comparing like for like Sigurdson is worth every penny of 50 mill. If Everton can get him for that they will do. Our problem is how do we fit all our existing talent and the new talent into one side. This brand new Everton for me is a revelation, one I have not seen for decades.

Fully agree with the sentiment of your post Kingo. We've improved well and are stronger but we're not top 4 yet. I think Sigurdson is a must but not at £50m, just like Ross is never a £50m player.

I think we've made the gap below us larger and above us smaller. At this moment in time I fancy us to overtake arsenal at the minute.
I just don't see it with Gylfi. Yes he's good. Yes prices are very much inflated. But he's 28 next month and a 10 goal and 10 assists. Whereas it's not bad, considering he's the free kick and pen taker, for me it's not 50 million. For me, maybe 30-35m. But it's not my money haha.

What makes a player worth 30 or 35 mil that is different to a 50mil player.

Don't worry about money. Just worry about will they make us better, help us improve. Sig does so let's get him. I don't understand why people get hung up on figures.

United have just spent 90mil on a guy with a poor work rate and no first touch but probably could have got Mbappe for around the same price that looks twice the player and six years younger. Then again they got Martial and he hardly looks like the 58mil player he was signed to be.

The player is more important than the price tag.

Likewise, I don't understand fans who say don't worry about the money. At the end if the day, it always comes back on to the money. Niasse price is always mentioned. Even Kone throughout his entire 5 year contract was classed as a 5 million flop. And the difference between a 30m and 50million player is 20m which can get you an extra quality player.

Do I want one player that fits my team or get two players that cost less that don't but I've filled more places on the bench?

Niasse and Kone were just flops. Nothing to do with money. It only comes back to money by those concerned with it. We are clearly showing money is not what is driving our transfer window but instead what players do we need to take us to the next level.

Thinking about money is a small club mentality.
