Are Fosun doing enough?

There's no getting away from it...we are on a slippery slope right now and although I don't think there's a chance we'll be relegated, it does beg the question "Are Fosun doing enough"

I only stay on this forum, but quite a few on here go to various others and it seems that there is a growing concern about whether Nuno should remain in charge. Personally, I'd like to see him stay.

My concern is Fosun. They came with the plan to build this club to such an extent that we'd be challenging with the top 6 within 10 years. It seems a target that, in my opinion, is not going to get accomplished. Our overall total transfer dealings have us at -3.24m. Compare that to Chelsea who have deficit of 170.91m. All of the top 6 have a far larger deficit than us.

It's all very well investing in younger players and I'm certainly not against that, but we seem to be missing out on top class established players. We have one of the largest contingent of foreign players on our books too.

Selling our best players for a substantial profit is fine, provided you buy the near equivalent to fill the void. I personally believe that whoever's in charge of transfer dealings is not consulting with Nuno.

Fosun need to step up to the plate this summer, especially if more of our better players are sold off for a huge profit.

We had a near settled squad after our second season, but the wheel seems to have come off this time around. Granted we lost Jimenez, but that alone shouldn't have been the reason we're in such a decline.

I'd hate to see Nuno go in the summer, but if he doesn't get what he wants and it's left up to little Jeff, I wouldn't blame him if he left.

Getting orf me ol' soap box.

I don't think a single person has said we wouldn't miss Jimenez captain obvious. The point is that any club with any hint of intentions to being a top half side should have suitable replacements to come into a side to soften any blow.

Spurs have invested plenty on players that would help their squad cope if Kane got injured. They have Vinicius, Lamela, Bergwyn, Bale, Moura. Yesterday Kane wasn’t fit to play and they lost 1-0 at Brighton

You've kinda contradicted yourself there ol' bean.

I think his point was that despite loads of cover, without Kane they can't beat Brighton. Pretty daft example to be fair as any team can lose a game and ultimately Spurs problem is not unlike ours, despite good players they have a manager that insists on a negative style.

They don't have too many players from one country though, which is why they are above us in the table.

everybody is above us in the current form table

Shouldn't the title of this thread be "Is Fosun doing enough?", seeing that Fosun is a singular entity?

It's not hugely important in the grand scheme of things. However I do recall the author being something of a stickler for correctness in the past. I was loathe to mention it, so maybe consider it an observation. ๐Ÿ‘

Maitland- Niles has signed for the baggies on loan, big Sam has done some decent business today.

Traditionally, companies are singular (they are, after all, a single entity separate from their members, employees, or directors), and take the pronoun 'it'. However, modern usage tends to include treating the name as a collective noun instead, and using the pronoun 'they'.

Seems you're still living in the past on your remote island Butey. Welcome to the modern times.
