This is the crux of it.
People love to just blame Kroenke because it’s easy but we have never not spent money. We just spend it terribly. Probably one of the worst in the league. Pepe for £70m+ now looks retarded when we could have had Upamecano at around that and thus one of the best CBs going.
Now we’re not rolling the dice on Aouar despite surely having the money.
If we were a limited club I’d have some understanding but we’re not. We’re just terribly run and we’ve been convincing ourselves otherwise for way too long.
