Your right .
Im not writing anyone off i just dont think some of the signings are good enough .
We have seen the best that Charlie Adam can give and quite frankly its not good enough for a starting spot .
Impact sub yes , starter no !
Jordan Henderson is a talent but never should have been bought (yet) as a first team player at Liverpool .
Buying a player/potential so young would have been better if we had strengthened our squad already , then introduce him into strong established setup.
We done things backwards if you ask me and that can damage the guys confidence which aint fair on him either .
Downing has been a disaster to date ..will that change ? possibly .
You all know my feelings on Carroll so im not getting into that . imo he will never evolve into the player or reach the hopeful heights people would like .
i cant see him at the club in 18months.
i lied im writing him off .
Craig Bellamy is a seasoned pro with bags of determination and i wish they would strap him to Downings hip for a week so it rubs off .
Our best signing which cost zero .
