So you're advocating clemency for @ItsOKImAPilot then ?
I'd never advocate clemency for anyone
Pay for the crime
maybe the man who advocated to smash our transfer record for a center mid and throwing him on a wing
Because he can take it.
Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector.
Koeman couldn't have made it any clearer that he wanted a centre forward and left sided defender going in to the last few weeks of the window. Therefore the blame needs to lie with Walsh and the board for not getting a deal over the line.
I'm by no means Koeman's biggest fan, I think his tactics and team selections this season have been poor. But not signing a replacement for Lukaku is disgraceful and somebody needs to be held responsible for it. Just as the manager will be held to account if our poor run of form continues.
Obviously Koemans fault. When Lukaku was sold the first thing that he should have done was buy a top class replacement. Simple as that. He was given money to spend and he blew it all on other positions.
the amount of hammering on Dave, i often wondered how he could stand up to it. Well i guess it got the better of him in the end.
I liked the guy. Very pracmatic, but it seem like we all are, at the moment.
I hope for his return
He died for all our sins and will rise from the dead again
Anyone mentioned new lawn mowers yet?
I can see why you have so many votes in the "who's the biggest blert" thread.
Back off Gracey, those votes were hard earned.
Koeman and Kenwright
Your poll needs to be multi-choice mate, because , chances are, all of Koeman, Walsh and Moshiri have some blame attached to them.
Thinking about it now I'd say Koeman had ultimate responsibility for allowing the sale of players and i'd go as far as saying he has the final say over what players are signed.
Far from me to assume Steven Walsh identified the players Koeman was looking for, but something isn't working in my opinion; hence the disjointed nature of our team. Koeman can't continue to hide behind the lack of signings, Martinez was not give the same credibility even thou he requested numerous signings/positions whilst at the club. Paying £45mil for Glyfi, only to play him left of a front 3 isn't the smartest of moves, and that doesn't suddenly rectify itself with a number 9, so he can't be allowed to hide behind that excuse either.
Koeman has brought this short-coming on himself; sell whoever by all means but make sure a replacement is through the door first. It's obvious why the dreaded 'sell-to-buy' debate rumbles on, but then again you've the @theesk 's jazzy friend 'amortization' saying otherwise - who knows?
Anyhow, with all this extra pointlessness in mind my above poll question may not be correct - or another question could materialize: Who was responsible for allowing the sale of Lukaku?
I'd say the fact our recruitment is still being discussed 3 windows in says all that needs to be said. You may say it's nothing to do with us fans anyway, so why would it matter, i'd say to that Moshiri's numerous interviews have merely invited more questions then he may have wanted to answer.
