Of the top of my head, the ten we signed in the transfer window: –
So that’s roughly 2x CB. 4x MF. 4x ST. More importantly 0x GK & 0x FB.
Did we need four more midfielders and four more strikers? Surely a broader range of acquisitions would have been more logical?
Only a couple of those signed were over 23 so in effect all we have is a big U23 squad, with little depth of experience.
Can we send back the loans? Let’s face it Cordner’s bottle looks to have gone, Vincent has been fairly ineffective and Taylor is being played too deep.
Did we need Hippolyte when we had Green and Dales here already? Did we need Loft, Jarvis and Turan?
So yes, Brown is a welcome addition, but it’s still just papering over the cracks of a particularly odd transfer window.
