Big Sam has said he hopes to tie up the Walcott deal within the next week or two! Seriously it will take that long? Also one deal at a time so no hope of a new left back then.
Frustrated by recent results but it feels worse when you see how all the optimism and potential we had after the Man City game last season.

We still have to sell before we buy mate, Moshiri is as tight as Bill, WTF.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think thats actually true stig..

ED002 and many other posters have posted in-depth posts regarding the process of signing new players and the time it takes to get everything done and dusted.

Looks like you couldn't be bothered to read them, therefore I shall once again explain.

Actually I can't be bothered.

Why Ed mate, a lot of the lad say we spent over 100m? but that was only the money we got from Rom?

{Ed025's Note - besides the £150m we spent in the summer we have added tosun and onykuru, but besides that we have significant wage rises, tax, vat, agent fees etc stig, the basic price is nowhere near what it actually costs to secure players and keep the club running mate..

Grumpy, Chill! My point is we should identify our targets before the window opens ie Van Dijk and Liverpool. We have been in discussions all last week so to then say it could take another two weeks is not good enough to be honest. I am not saying all signings should be done in 24hrs but come on!

15 Jan 2018 16:56:15
Van Dijk took 6 months and even when announced could not sign for another 48 hours.

15 Jan 2018 16:59:42
At the end of the day we need a left back more than we need another bloody winger.

15 Jan 2018 17:08:20
Grumpy so you are saying you are happy for our club to take 3 weeks to sign each player?

15 Jan 2018 17:36:58
Thanks Ed mate, but not many owners buy clubs to to make money (except Ken&Co) you and the lads must admit we are a little bit disappointed with are new owner?

{Ed025's Note - im not actually stig, moshiri has backed his managers and provided the funds when asked, has also started the new ground process so i dont think we can ask any more of him mate..

15 Jan 2018 18:33:13
The owners, all of them, have done exactly what was required. They've backed every manager with money and went for the targets they were given.

I fear, and this is backed up with what happened at Liverpool and spurs, that all of the comings and goings have unsettled the Squad not just the team.

Confidence and understanding between each other is so important and it takes time to develop. I don't think it will happen until next season and they need a good preseason together to gel.

We maybe were too quick to sack Koeman but he had other issues relating to his man management skills that probably sped up his sacking.

For Unsworth he had a very difficult situation. When you're not the manager and there is uncertainty then the players won't fully buy into what you're selling.

Sam has it tough because his reputation is tarnished, his brand of football ugly and his lack of success will make it tough to sign top quality players.

We have to back him though while he is there and hope he can build an exciting, winning team. It's far too soon to say he can't and even next season will only be a building job for him. It'll take time and not 10 or 20 games.

We will get battered again this season. We need to stay calm and understand our situation. Be angry and vent but also have a little perspective of where we are.

It will 100% get better as we are investing heavily in the infrastructure of the club and the squad. But patience is needed right now.

{Ed025's Note - good post that john mate..

Yeh good post positive and realistic. 👏.

15 Jan 2018 19:22:21
Good post BJU.

15 Jan 2018 19:25:54
Robbie I for one do not let how long it takes to sign a new player bother me, I don't care if it takes 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days or 3 hours all that matters is we get them. Remember that Arsenal do not want to sell him so 2 weeks wait is fine by me.

15 Jan 2018 19:37:25
Good post Blue. Although it's a world cup year so don't expect a great pre season, in fact it could be worse.

15 Jan 2018 21:13:01
You're not wrong smit. Hopefully though, we can get some structure and confidence and recharge the energy cells.

Honestly, for me, a left back, another striker and centre back if we get walcott, would do for me over this and the next window. Clear a few out and make the squad smaller but a tighter knit group.

15 Jan 2018 21:47:46
I'd go with that Blue John although could I be greedy and replace Schneids with an athletic dynamic midfielder aswell.uoo

15 Jan 2018 22:51:27
You certainly can Smit😁.
