Stubborn stubborn stubborn that is Moyes for you he refuses to buy anyone unless they improve the squad thats fair enough but to claim that there was just nobody available was laughable and as everything goes tits up for us you read the pathetic news we tried a £50million bid for Nunez followed by only reason it did not happen was the paperwork could not be done in time making it impossible and the same with Kalvin Phillips and Raphina why would Leeds sell in a dogfight.
My point being as Lingard has learnt when your stock is high thats when you make your move not a wait n see policy.....we were in europe we were playing attractive football the media for once were loving us and the way we played but for some reason and i cannot quite put my finger on it but for some reason we just ground to a halt on all fronts and sadly a season of promise has fizzled out faded and died etc etc.
Europa conference next season who knows or cares to be honest and thats not snobbery on my account i just fail to see the point of us playing European football if Moyes persists in such a small squad we will hear the usual refrain about tired players and all that waffle.
Injuries yes they have played there part but no club is immune from that its part of football life but so heres that dreaded phrase..Lessons Will be Learned...we can but hope and pray they are but this summer all i can see is a bunch of Everton cast offs being linked and most likely bought and the decent players the top four not interested in well the barcodes will be sweeping those up.
We had a chance a real chance to do and be something other than the West Ham we all know but sadly we will just go back to being a midtable side at best but now Bowen/Rice had a taste of European football it could well be a disastrous summer for the club.
