Whilst I generally enjoy this site and it's content, I am finding the negativity a certain editor somewhat tiresome.
Constant references to 'not repeating earlier mistakes', and criticism of the club/managers policy of buying youthful players shows an unhelpful level of impatience.
The earlier mistakes that we now need to enjoy are no to sign overpriced, overpaid, so-called experienced players, like the ones we are still trying to offload. (Given, Bent, Hutton, and Ireland etc). The policy of signing young talent should be applauded.
It is the only way a club like ours can ever compete at the higher end of the table. We improved significantly in the second half of last season. Last seasons players will continue to improve, and we have been the busiest team in the transfer market this close season. No more of the policy of waiting till deadline day when prices are at their peak, (MON). So I can see nothing but optimism for next season.
Yet I 'Fear' that if we make a poor start (our opening fixtures are far from the kindest), then further scorn will fall on Paul Lambert, from the mighty pen of Mr. Fear.
The most important signing we can make between now and September 1st, is to get Benteke to sign a new deal. Their will be no big name, high profile signings to come. I for one am happy with this. Anyone who isn't is in for a summer of disappointment.
