Of course there will be the argument that we spent upwards of £150m in the summer, but that money went towards five young prospects for the future, Gundogan who has been out for the majority of the season with injury and then Nolito and Bravo who haven’t been regulars, to say the least since the turn of the year.
This has meant our strength in depth across the pitch has been lacking, if you take away our star-studded players, we have no real super-subs who can make an instant impact off the bench, a player of a calibre such as Edin Dzeko is desired, who may not have been a starter for every game, but scored the goals when it mattered.
Nolito was a good buy or this type of player to add strength to our wingers, however, he is not a player who when brought off the bench can instantaneously change the game with innovation, creativity and inventiveness. Aaron Mooy also depicts the players of this distinction that must be acquired next year for success if we aren’t to make the same mistake as this year.
