Yeah. It was "only" four because Liverpool basically declared.

Like they did against us one day in February some years since, when they could have notched up a baker's dozen.

On a more serious note, if the comrades in Yardley can get rid of Jessie, I promise to wash your car and mow your lawn for a year. Cheers.

They should just get rid of the transfer window altogether. Just gives an advantage to the clubs with massive squads. It also keeps an otherwise dead season alive trying to convince yourself you can sign someone who is gonna turn everything around.

We used to sign players in September, November, even February, and noone died.

My dad did. Albeit in April, and the blame would technically be weighted towards his bowel cancer rather than the transfer window, according to the 'experts'. It may have been before the transfer window came in but everything happens for a reason (it doesn't).

Completely agree.  Sick to death of all the people on here making all these claims about how in the old Barclays League Division One everyone was immortal.

Did we actually release Tshibola in the end? or is he still on the books? I don't think he got a squad number or a loan move so wondered what had happened to him.

There's probably some folk who want him to start ahead of Grealish after he committed the cardinal sin of giving the ball away on Saturday.   ;D

Still around I believe but can be loaned out to League 1, 2 or Scotland

Ta, depending on how he did at Kilmarnock you'd think someone up north would want him if we're going to be paying his wages anyway.

We might be better off waiting until January to see if we need another striker.

Callum O'Hare talking to Doncaster about a loan move.  Managed by Villa fan Darren Moore of course, got to keep it in the family!

Interesting. Full Danish international. Been at Celta Vigo last two seasons. Played well in his debut year in Spain although fell more out of favour last year. Very much a winger and one I'd have been happy to get in.

Reckon we will get Bale in January so won't need this bloke.

Spoke to a couple of friends in Denmark and I get the impression that he's a bit like Bolasie in that he's great with the ball at his feet but the end product just isn't there most of the time.
