I think we made a huge error in not buying Ings or a lesser known forward and going all out for Kane when it became obvious that Spurs were going to hold out for £150m. If we had no intention of paying that kind of fee we should have walked away a long time ago.

Hopefully a young player like Delap will step up. If they don't and we get an injury to Foden or KDB we will be in trouble. You take, KDB and Foden out of City, then we look short of goals.

Does Omar Berrada know what he's doing because this window has been poor.
Think half the problem is when Pep says he’d rather go with what he has than a striker he doesn’t think fits, fans are still reluctant believe it or to trust he can make it work. We don’t think like Pep, few do.
He wanted Kane because he saw Kane fitted his plans.
As fans we can blame who we want for not having a plan B, and we might have one yet wait and see. It’s also possible Pep said no to options like Ings, Lukaku, because in his head he believes he can get more team goals from what he has, than a striker that might score 25 but disrupt the team plan.

I feel so sorry for Aguero, he was told he was being moved on because we were getting in a new striker and he wouldn’t get game time. To do that to your greatest ever player, who brought you your club's greatest ever moment is just so morally wrong.
I feel sorry for him having gone to Barca expecting to hang around with his best mate.
He’s now at a club that probably can’t afford to register him.

Can't help but feel we're too soft when it comes to more established players at bigger clubs over the last few years.

I can't remember the last player we signed who wasn't an easy option, with either a buyout clause or from a club vastly inferior.

Pep said no to other options but we were going to panic buy nearly 37 year old!!!!

No sugar coating it. We messed up this window.
