The window closed, the board declared their ambition for the football side of the business and also showed their real acumen with a new sponsor this week. Maybe they have John Terry lined up to ride to our rescue as a contractless free agent.

As to the window, to make it effective shut it even earlier and extend the deadline to buy or renew Season Tickets until after the transfer window closes, that might make the board do something.

The good news is the expectation, almost a free pass, which will now be very low, City and Scouse to take the big prizes, backs against the wall, circle the wagons. Now will Jose take it and stay or will he walk away. The board probably think he won't walk as he would lose his pay off and show everyone is right about the third season scenario. Big decision because those hollering for a fancy manager might well get a big bite of reality.

Now with the free pass, will José try to do the best with the established players or mix it and give the young players time, give Chong, Garner, Greenwood and Gomes a chance. If it goes wrong the pressure will and should now be on Woodward and the Glazers. I hope we see youngsters from tomorrow, stuff the owners now, finish10th if needed and give the kids a go. We cannot put full blame on the manager after this window, he needs to make use of that.

There's no free pass to be tenth redman you wouldn't tolerate Moyes being tenth . The team were runners up last year and have added a brazillian international, Jose will be able to make an argument why catching city and Liverpool will be difficult through lack of player investment but spurs added nobody and I'd have our squad over arsenal's every day . Jose may be underwhelmed at our recruiting but he's paid well for his skill and expertise he's not exactly going into battle unarmed . Young players should play when they deserve to and not to make a point .

I’d also argue we have added Sanchez as he was pretty crap last year. He looks refreshed and could be like a brand new signing.

It could be a difficult season, hard to watch our two main rivals have a far better approach than ours. Perhaps 10th was too lenient, that I agree, but are Manchester United about playing for 3rd? Is that what it’s come too? I think 3rd is probably where we will end up. Will top players come to us in future if that is the extent of our ambition?

I think we over performed last season to get second but it was time to invest heavily this summer and the owners didn’t, despite pleas from the manager. It is inexcusable unless the financial bottom falls out of the football market.

RedMan, i agree entirely on giving our young players a chance. I would rather see them playing with passion than pogba and martial going through the motions because they don't feel our club is worthy of them. We are NOT winning the PL this year, so might as well play one or two younger players and give them experience.
