the questions is risk NONE of the players you mentioned were crocked when signed, all in 10M bracket, & all PROVEN top goal scorers.
WTF would you spunk 18 fkn Million on a totally unproven injured prospect, fine if you top 6 club flush with funds farming potential talent.
Far to much down side risk, and as you point its bad if you drop 10M on player who busts but 18 fkn M!! Seth Johnson level financial madness & risking promotion.
We needed some fker to come in January and put the chances away, we create plenty just no one hitting the onion bag
If El Loco had not mismanaged Fast Eddie we would have guy capable of hitting the target
Roberts was crocked still unproven,
We just needed someone NOW Che Adams was the one but sadly it did not happen.
