Days go on, fans still look for a scapegoat second something not goes our way. It’s ridiculous really. First it is the way of transfer market. Sometimes you get your targets, sometimes you don’t. Second, we have covid. Clubs don’t have money. Bigger clubs don’t have money. We somehow made a 40m+ add ons offer (my guess is kroenke, otherwise I don’t see where that money came from). And the last, ol tried to extort us. They had “you paid 72m for pepe so you’ll pay 60m for aouar” in mind. They didn’t want to negotiate (50m + 10 in addons is not really a negotiation. It’s same ultimatum).
The complete meltdown some people have is plain stupid. Btw, if we made 38+addons offer, there’s still a chance to get partey. Who’d be a better signing at this stage of team development imo
