We had the potential to be the current Bayern standard plus more 2 seasons back.
Mahrez, Rodri, Cancelo all cost about £200m and added nothing to the centurions team. All good players but added nothing more to that XI.
We didn’t replace Kompany. A world class CB and leader.
Rodri for Fernandinho is such a downgrade it’s untrue. What Fernandinho did for that team defensively was phenomenal.
And now with DSilva leaving and Fernandinho and Aguero almost done that’s 3 more world class players who won’t be replaced with players of their level.
Not to mention Sane leaving. He brought the speed, directness and excitement.
It’s been a bad couple of years off the pitch. And when I say bad, I mean for the standards we’d hope to achieve. Obviously we’ve done ok.
We are now just a good team in with a shout. Not a brilliant team who everyone is afraid of. We got close to being dominant for years but we let the chance pass.
I’ll never forget that season though. What a team that was 2 years back.
Pretty much sums it up for me. For some reason we don't often seem to target players who will improve the first team, they're always just decent squad fillers.
We were unstoppable for two seasons and it was wonderful. We should be targeting signings like Haaland and Sancho to keep that standard going.
