It was the complete opposite of their moneyball approach, which is why it all shocked me then, and doesn't have me so utterly surprised now..
It makes me scratch my head that they brought in Comolli to be the director of player transactions and scouting, yet they went no further then a few hundred miles around the country with their signings, when the man is fluent in French with many connections there, in Spain and other countries/leagues.
I have to really, REALLY question who sanctioned all of these moves considering the players he was involved with bringing to Spurs, Essou Ekotto, Modric, Bale, Krancjar, Sandro...
Now that Henry and co., have a full year and half under their belt watching us, the league, other leagues and the Champions League, I think it's fair to say they will assess this very harshly at year's end and do whatever's necessary to rectify it and ensure this isn't replicated again since obviously more money needs to be layed out..
I agree completely Jason. The Summer signings did seem odd but I recognised the need for home grown talent. Either way the fees for all of them were eye popping especially when other clubs seem to buy much cheaper than we do. A plus side at least is when you look at Suarez on the field (ignore the other troubles) then that signing works.
Something is very wrong somewhere when we deal in the transfer market which is why I'm very slow at jumping on the sack Dalglish bandwagon. That and the fact that I do not want the club to become similar to Chelsea. To me it's not the solution for long term success and strength and FSG will not want to continue to pump money in at the alarming rate that Abramovich does. All credit to him for that at least!
I can only assume there will be changes this Summer and hopefully everything will be positive. I've said it before, the club longs for someone to give it a clear direction. Grab it, get everyone together (on and off the field), and get us up to date. There are too many things living in the success of the past which isn't quite working now. That includes Anfield for me!
