It's the shambolic succession planning and timing of it that doesn't stand up, as several others have pointed out.
If, as many seem to think, Borja is only good for 45 minutes on the weekend, that's a joke tbh. Even if they can register a loanee by tomorrow evening then realistically what can he offer with less than 48 hours prep?
Badly executed in every way bar the price.
with you on Ayew, but disagree on Oli - I’d have taken the £15m by now personally, but if someone wants to go to £20m that is insane money for a very good poacher but one who can’t run or hold the ball up. Imo he’s a £5m, £10m player absolute max.
If SC believes the kids are good enough and wants to give them a chance that's fine by me I will fully support them. Equally if he decides that a youngster from a premier side would be a better option to back VDH and Joe up I will support them. I have said before there are too many managers on this site.
