Every time you go on the news or the papers you see players being signed by clubs all over the place.
All you ever read about us is we are "edging" closer or we are trying very hard.
You never read Chelsea edging closer or Man Citeh trying very hard, you only read Citeh sign this bloke or United snap up another etc...
No wonder so many are taken right out from under our noses. .
Chelsea just signed a player they have been linked with for months and close to signing for weeks. Man Utd were linked with Lukaku for weeks and weeks. Rooney to Everton was "close" for about two months. Liverpool still haven't signed the midfielder they put a bid in for at the start of June.
I'm sure if you go on the forum of any premier league club you will find dozens of posts like yours. You are closer to our transfers so it feels like they take longer and that we miss out on more targets.
We are blessed to live in a world of unparalleled information sharing, but equally are cursed that the quality of that information has never been worse as everyone and their mother races to be "first" "best" and frankly just makes **** up for attention.
Throw in the echo chamber of having people on here and social media reinforcing your view that the board are crap at this stuff and it actually gets quite depressing when new signings should be exciting.
