But you act like every gamble fails. Richarlison was just as much a gamble when we did it. The fact is if we ever want to succeed we have to gamble. Hopefully we can put the best possible processes in place to succeed with those gambles but we aren't making permanent progress without them.I'd rather have two years of progress and then regress back to the 'kaput' stage, which is where we are right now. Than having no progress at all, and remain in the kaput stage for ever more.
For me, free transfers on high wages that you know are gona give you a good two years and then maybe slow down on their third is much better than gambling 30 million before you even start paying wages on an Iwobi, who will just provide four years of constant wank.
And that's without taking into account that signing 32+ year olds who could be finished at any moment is also gambling but with far smaller potential reward.
