Most of his buys have been distinctly average, I will exclude both Barry and Lukaku from that.
I have said on here on a number of occasions how we could have appointed a man who had just got his team relegated is beyond belief. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that under his stewardship the team is getting worse the longer he is here.
When you look at the players he has had for nearly all his 3 seasons I don't see too many improvements in any of them.
You could argue that some have actually gone backwards under him, I don't see any improvement in McCarthy in the last 3 seasons. Baines and Coalman are nowhere near the players they were under Moyes. Barkley is probably the biggest disappointment 2 seasons ago he looked as if he was going to make a huge impact, but sadly that hasnt materialized. There has been no youngsters break into the first team, yet for years I keep hearing what promising kids we had in the under 18s and under 21s when RM arrived.
Finally the style of play has significantly deteriated over his time here, yes the first season we looked solid at the back and seemed to have more options up front. But it seems that he took over a well drilled defence and a team that was fit and had a good work ethic. The longer he has had with practically the same back 4 as Moyes our defending is now a shambles.

Do you think this may prompt Martinez to re-think his "philosophy"? No, me neither...

"I think what you don't do is protest during the game and what you don't do is do something that is rehearsed," he added. "I think there was a plane that was flown over Goodison Park which just looks so cheesy these days and so preconceived."
Then a couple of sentences later praises Liverpool fans. "The most meaningful fan protest lately has been the Liverpool fans walking out over ticket prices."
And that wasn't planned, preconceived? Spontaneous was it? Absolute prick.
