When we changed out transfer approach, we started to see negative effects.

Look at some of the players who were available this season alone, who would have instantly improved our side, and didn’t cost the world. Just emphasises the terrible business we’ve done from Walcott and Tosun, to Schneiderlin, to Iwobi.

Gallagher loan
Olise £10m
Livramento £3m
Cornet £12m
Normann loan

Like they’re not world wide names, but they’re all high upside, and if we’d have got all 5, would have cost £25m… which is less than Iwobi.

It’s fine margins, but what is Brands doing? These were available, and exactly the type of player we need.

He chased a Dutch right back who made it clear he didn’t want to come. The previous summer he chased a centre half all year only go get caught at the end.

He’s a joke.

Moshiri equals a sweet tooth put in charge of a sweetshop. Is brands allowed to do the job that he was employed for. Players couldn't give a damn, money going in the bank anyway, effort or not.If this mess carries on it will be welcome to Bramley Moore in the championship. Nobody seems answerable.

I have defended Brands because he came in after Koeman/Walsh/Allardyce £400m shïtshow and had Silva handed to him.

I thought Silva and Brands done well first season especially Richarlison, Digne, Mina, Zouma and Gomes on loan but still errors like Bernard creep in.

Losing Gueye and not signing Zouma permanently in that summer then wasting all that hard work on players like:
Gbamin - freak injury - £22.5m
Kean - unproven big risk - £24.5m
Iwobi - FFS - £27m
Gomes - another freak injury -.£22m
Delph - not on the level of Gueye - £9m

That summer was Walsh levels it was huge money plus still not addressing defensive faults (centre back/right back) tho Sidibe aside.

Silva is done because the team got weaker and squad worse so in comes Carlo.

Excellent summer but still not addressing the right back position for 3 years plus Keane on a 5 year deal is sackable alone but still not getting that wage bill down or making a profit from a single player we have bought in the last 5 years.

Carlo blew Europe with our home record then jumped ship so the appointment of Benitez was a final nail for me.

Yeah he has no money but he is so negative, a polar opposite and ex red so he was on a lose from the off.

Brands was part of the decision and if not, what's the point. He hasn't be held accountable for any mistake like everyone else on the board but his title is Director of Football and he has failed.

Time to go
