I for one will give him credit for not buying Carlton Flopba. Despite an apparent full-court press from Mino and his people in trying to flog him off on us two summers in a row. Can't be all bad, then? All clubs' recruitment is obviously going to be hit/miss. Seems to me that of the biggest spending PL clubs Chelsea have done better since 13. Arsenal a little worse. Liverpool and Trafford far worse. You'd ideally not want to finish second in any contest. But doesn't also seem to be a disaster as far as the tenure on a whole.
