    I'd say Chelsea have been the best. 9.5/10
    United 8/10
    Liverpool Idontevenknow/10
    Arsenal 6.5-7/10
    Man City well... I didn't even know where their weaknesses were.

    CB and CM backup (they signed both: mangala and fernando)
    but got rid of Negredo.

    So 7/10 for them too.

    6/10 window from us. Would have been a 4 if not for Sanchez.
    I'd go 4.5-5/10.

    I don't think people realise how important a quality ST and DM was for us to really do something this season. We may not have taken a massive step back, but those around us have definitely moved further away.

    Liverpool have stayed the same
    Chelsea have moved away a fair bit
    City have probably moved very slightly further away
    United are still awful defensively, though they'll catch up a bit
    Spurs are as far away as they were last year.
    Everton might be closer though, probably the same though.

    top 2: City and Chelsea
    3/4 Liverpool and Arsenal
    5 Spurs/United/Everton

    IF United had bought a CB I'd have put them in our bracket.

    Fair enough. That Mangala guy was expensive uno

    So, what we giving the transfer window out of 10? Should we get Welbeck of course.
    Would give it a 6.5, no CDM or experienced CB replacement is a worry, but we replaced what we lost with better players in every case imo.

    So long as we tell the fullbacks not to attack as much it lowers the need to have CDM's as the problem with most of the goals has been fullbacks charging up and no CDM to cover leaving Merta and Chambers to push wide to cover and completely committing themselves in 50/50's on the counter. Monreal has actually been quite impressive defensively so if we told him to stay back then we may be strong.

    Needed a solid defender to make it an 8 a CDM to make it 9 and another amazing striker to make it 10

    Yes. Because we have lost two experienced defenders in Sagna and TV5 and their replacements are not really convincing so far. Also we have failed to add depth to that defence.

    TV5 was garbage let's not sugarcoat that fact.

    Yes.

    Because we don't have the ST or DM we were all begging for at the end of the season.

    That's too high a score anyway!

    Would still have preferred to keep him as cover. He would do against lower end of the table teams.

    7 points off the title last season and the positions that needed to be strengthened weren't so yes, a disappointing window if we take into account all the "progression" bs that has been spouted

    Chambers isn't convincing?

      Our window has been a 4. Signed a luxury player and neglected our clear weak points. No CDM brought in and we are very bare in defence, a couple defensive injuries and we are ****ed. Should have used the Sanchez money on a proper striker.

      Also most of the players brought in have been replacements, not additions.

      He's good but a bit inexperienced.

      He was good to begin with but against Basiktas in the second leg and definitely against Leicester he went to ground and committed himself far too quickly. Also did it in community shield iirc.

      He's one for the future and will mature I'm sure, but whether he's a good enough replacement against fast counter attacking teams is questionable atm
