Player Valuation: £80m
by the end of the window, we will have potentially lost five matches - including four league games against Forest, Brentford, Leeds and Villa - all winnable. If we lose all those matches because the board didn't get a striker, not only does that do a lot to damage confidence of the players already in the squad, but it also gives those other clubs we'd be fighting with in the table a big advantage.
I think our fans underestimate how big a job this rebuild is mate. We weren't bringing in 8+ players and sorting our FFP problems in the space of a couple of weeks.
New system / formation
We have to progress this season of course but at the same time it's unrealistic to have been chomping at the bit for the Chelsea game with all our problems addressed.
If fans haven't the patience to potentially sacrifice the first 3-4 games for the right targets to come in and have a better remaining 34-35 games that follow then they haven't learned from failings of the past.
