If we are to achieve our ambitions then we need to be buying either the finished article or players who get better each game. With Younas he started averagely and got worse! Im all for bringing in new faces and developing them over time but that way lies mid table. YK was thrown straight into the front line and never quite recovered. The money from the sale of these 4 players (wherever they end up) plus cash from other sales (Robbo, Keane, Berbs, KPB etc) should be used to bring in the class acts that will push us into the upper echelons. Only then can we afford the luxury of blooding up and coming prospects like YK.
you've hit the nail right on the head there essex, to progress we need to sign better,more complete and finished players, but the better players don't want to play uefa cup football they want cl football, unless of course wages go through the roof, so we're in a catch 22 situation sadly ;-)
