So no, for us they would not have been good business IMO.

Jason Puncheon scored 7 - he cost us 1.75m!!!!

People talk about 15-20 goal a season strikers as though they are plentiful. To hit double figures in the PL is tough.
That's exactly my point. Some of our fans are never happy. I think Wilfried Bony was the only Premier League striker to get 15 goals outside of a top 4 club.

Adam Johnson, Jay Rodriguez and Christian Benteke the only to score MORE than Gayle/Puncheon and not play for a team in Europe this season (lots from Southampton but they now all play for Liverpool).

Again, based on this, who on earth do people think we should've signed!!?


My only major regret this summer is Sigurdsson.
