I think this is the core issue of what is driving the recent fan angst.
Yea Hamlet is pretty much an empty shirt. He will speak the words that are written for him.
But still, can't the bosses in Austria bring us at least one good player, so many positions need help, just one player, I mean like 1 good player. Weather from South America, North America, Europe, Asia or anywhere else, but at least one good player this year. I don't think it's a lot to ask for to this billion dollar company, is it?
For years, Red Bull appeared to be only one big splash signing away from winning a championship, yet they always left a DP spot open and never made this acquisitions.
Now they have gone full moneyball (which doesn't work btw, the Oakland A's never won shit) and are embracing guys like Buckmaster while the other teams are bringing in better talent.
The prospects who have put in hard work deserve spots on the first team, but at the end of the day they are still prospects. They aren't skill players. Skill players are the guys that win teams championships.
