Called Ramsdale Ugly
And you weren't suspicious of why he'd do that? If i was a footballer with real ambition still left in me, i wouldn't turn down Chelsea for us even under Lampard. In fact i wouldn't turn down the Chelsea flower show for Arsenal, ffs.
But with this sort of logic, we would never have signed Partey either...as he also left a Champions League club to play for us.
I am sure money played a part, like it did with Thomas...but it doesn't mean a player will always be a poor signing.
But as I said, Willian was an error...and if he is on the amount of money people say, then that's terrible by the club.
But if he was prepared to accept a 2 year deal on a decent wage, I would have done it as the manger...as I would feel he would be a very useful squad player.
I agree with G though that we need to stop signing older players from other Premiership clubs for a bit, it's affecting our reputation quite badly now.
