Torres was the last bad buy really.(out of players anyway) Turned it around well since then,atleast in the buying and selling transfer windows. Not been a fan of some of their loan out decisions.

We sold really well in this 2 years, we bought really well also in this period.

But before Mourinho was here we were buying great unnecessary players, Now I thinjk it's a little diferent.

We had De Bruyne, Mata and Oscar but no wingers (with quality to play there just Hazard), we had 3 good CB but a midfield with Essien, Mikel, Ramires and Lampard. No striker.

We are doing good sells and buying the players we need.

In the last 1-2 years it did seem like we only wanted to sign attacking players, it did get ridiculous at times :lol: but the last year especially with Mourinho and Emenalo we have been going in the right direction, Mourinho is a football man, he knows what players we need to make us more balanced and competitive, while Emenalo essentially can look for the type of players Mourinho wants.

50m for Modric?? This is supposed to be a thread praising the board for not doing silly things....

In the current market modric is worth more than 50m as he's arguably the best midfielder in the world. He took over the mantle left by the ageing xavi imo

I've always seen Oscar as a Pirlo/Modric type player if he's played in the pivot area. But none of the 3 coaches we've had have ever really played him there so I'm guessing he's missing something the others have

You need excellent technical ability(close control,passing range) and vision to excel in that role, qualities oscar lacks. I find the comparison insulting to those players actually

There's no similarity whatsoever between oscar and those amazing footballers and there's a reason top class DLP are in short supply and very rare.

Oscar is more similar to thomas muller,albeit a less efficient and inconsistent version,if anything.

And you are absolutely right, he's missing the technical ability and vision those players posess.

What?? Seriously?? He isn't even the best midfielder at his club. Xabi Alonso imo is much better. I have never rated Modric, even back in his Spurs days i thought he was overrated. To go and blow 50mill on him imo wouldn't be far off Torres as the most ridicilous transfer this club has ever made.

you should really watch a couple of RM matches. the team was being carried by modric and maria. their heart and soul.
