Transfer Deadline Daze

1. Value? Aaaaggh!
One of the main purposes of our new found wealth should be not having to worry about value. If a player will improve us, let's do it. We want to be in a situation where Ozil is no longer our 'big signing', but where big money players of 25-30m can get on quietly doing their job, filling gaps and improving us. It's what the other big clubs do.

2. CB or DCM?
Do you know my criteria for a new signing more than whether he is a striker, CB or DCM? It's that we buy leadership. It's what we lack above all. And the reason why I shudder at the thought that any sane person ever thought Ballotelli would be a good idea.

3. Why a DCM is unlikely
Over the past five years AW has had plenty of opportunities to by a DM but not - he obviously doesn't fancy one. I can't see any reason why he would suddenly change his mind.
