Signing 'opportunities'

Recommended Posts

With all due respect, is the OP really saying much more than that we should sign good value players?

 

This is no doubt true but doesn't seem to take us all that far.

 

The equivalent for us of Spurs buying someone surplus to PSG requirements would probably be buying someone surplus to a lower premier league team's requirements.  That worked well in the case of Bannan, Hooper, FF: less so for Abdi and Rhodes.  It doesn't seem an inherently better strategy than buying from lower leagues and overseas leagues.  There's risks every way.

Picking up on the sentiment of the OP it would’ve been interesting to know what Jos would’ve made of the likes of Helan, Lachman, Dielna etc.

 

Water under the bridge, I know, but an interesting thought given Jos’ fresh perspective

Best example of that in the Championship is probably Mr Wilder

Mr Wilder is the best example of a lot of things! One starts with a W.
