That isn't what I said.None of those players are as good for us as they were for their previous clubs. If you feel they have grown as players since going us, feel free to make that argument as to how we have improved them.
They are what they are, I just don't think that they were good enough, or what the club and the fans expected them to be.
For some it might be because they are not playing in their most effective position, and others because the team style of play doesn't make the most of what attributes they possess.
But my feeling is that they were overpriced and lacked sufficient talent to justify their purchase, or their regular inclusion in the team. Lamela is the biggest disappointment for me, as he lacks that spark that we were all promised that he possessed. Soldado too, but I think that as long as we persist with inverted wingers he will continue to be wasted.
