Overthrow the Big 6 Investment in the highest amount ever
・Although they ran out of stamina in the final stages of the last season, they maintained their high rank in a stable fight and earned the right to participate in the ECL. They had a fulfilling season, including advancing to the best 4 in EL. The long ball-based tactics that the manager has instilled in them are highly complete, and the results of the past few seasons have proven that they can compete well against the Big 6 if they have the best members.
・Last season’s reinforcement ended in a big failure, but this season, the club’s record transfer fee was put into the market and a large-scale reinforcement was carried out. He has successively succeeded in representing players from strong countries such as Thilo Kehrer, Scamacca, and Paquetá. On the other hand, the starting dash failed, such as suffering three consecutive losses at the opening due to the successive injuries of the defense team. Moyes also said that the absence of Noble, who served as captain for a long time and retired at the end of last season, has a big impact. As the team has high-quality players, the appearance of a new leader who supports the mental aspect is required.
