I think we need to let go the thought of recreating BMW and the swashbuckling of 19-20 for a while if we’re to be a PL team. In Toney, Wissa and Mbeumo we have the potential once all three are experienced at this level and performing but getting them all there this season is a tall order.Sign him at all costs. We have 0 creativity at the moment. Missing the days of BMW when we could expect pure genius out of nothing . Even like when we first signed Jota.
Even with BMW, we lost a lot of Championship games. The wins were great, the defeats to organised teams who closed out so many 1-0s showed even at that level the presence of and reliance on magicians pulling rabbits from a hat wasn’t enough. Who in the PL is succeeding with a similar set up? Around mid table maybe only Palace and they’ve taken a while to start getting there this season from a much more established base. Liverpool do it with Salah, Jota and Mane. Newcastle had it with Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and Wilson (combined cost heading towards £100m pre-Saudi ownership) and are in the bottom three.
