Tavares/Lokonga have had far more poor performances than good onesAt risk of repeating myself, Ill ask again. How is it that those six signings have integrated so well? Especially no name brand players. If Arteta and Edu are so useless, who did the planning for our spending last summer?
We cant have it both ways, either Arteta and Edu are useless or they arent. I could accept the argument that they are not completely useless and not completely good, somewhere in between. And if that's the argument we make here, then it still doesnt explain how we have invested so well over the window.
Tomi/Ramsdale/White - the jury is still out, the hallmark of a good player is having a standard of performance over multiple seasons not keeping clean sheets against Leeds/Norwich then getting pasted by Liverpool/City/Chelsea anyway. Our standards have fallen so far that we are already calling these players resounding successes while we still lose the big games and sit in 7th place halfway through the season.
Arteta/Edu have done some things right but for the most part have been failures.
