If you asked me whether we have improved the squad from last year, I would have to say we have, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

Considering the sales of Mitrovic for £27m and Merino for £10m, the club clearly had the resources to offer Rafa Benitez more support in the transfer market, but they chose not to.

The window could have been far more successful if Mike Ashley had released the purse strings. Fans on Twitter are pretty downbeat about the events this summer, but are backing the manager to make the most of what he has:

Some supporters believe a positive start could help improve things:

It’s a difficult situation as we need to vent our frustration at the owner for his failure to invest in the squad, but at the same time, we have to back the manager and the team he has put together.

Despite the restrictions that have been placed on him, Rafa has assembled a good group of players and hopefully, we can get off to a good start against Spurs.
