I wouldnt take a single player off Sheffield United from the begining of the season, How many of those would get in our squad?? Wilder is a fucking brilliant manager who has those players drilled to know that formation and their role to te minutest of detail.

Wilder is an excellent manager but they also finished 13 points ahead of us last season and had the benefit of not having to rebuilt pretty much their entire squad. And there are definitely some players that would get into our squad.

I genuinly wouldnt, Wilder has players playing to there utmost potential, Berge is fucking briliantt but joined them. In January, Basham, O'Connell, Baldock, Stevens, Norwood etc wouldnt be out of place in a Championship team. Wilder has them so drilled in what they have to do and what he expects off them. For me he is the manager of the year.

Buying wank like Reina, Baston and Drinkwater in January when the side needed a proper kick up the arse and some pace and power injected is what will we to us losing Jack and having to watch shite like Jota playing against Reading next season.

Reina has been pretty good overall and Baston has played a grand total of 18 minutes, but yeah, Ďwankí.

We didn't need another goal keeper or forward that wasn't required by a championship side. We had other, glaring, deficiencies. The January window was by and large abysmal.

Iíd argue that given both our first and second choice goalkeepers were injured long term meant that a goalkeeper was required. And Davis getting injured again has shown why we needed Baston.

We were clearly restricted by financial fair play and the limitation of the mid-season market when it came to these signings. I think itís too early to definitively judge these players at the moment personally but certainly Reina and Samatta look good to me so far.

I reckon you could say the same about several of our players though - Hause, Konsa, Hourihane, Nakamba, Trezeguet at least could arguably be put into that category.

I agree that the system they play and Wilder is key to getting the best out of their team though.

Where are all the non-wank players who are happy to come to relegation scraps? If you think we ought to be paying over the odds for mid-table wankers to come somewhere they're not happy, I have a message for you from Sunderland AFC.

The strain of trying to carry this team really showed yesterday, there was a point when he went to the bench arms out in a what the fuck is going on? Gesture.
What a shame that his last season with us will be like this.

Heís right though isnít he because, letís face it, Whilst Reina has been decent itís been shots in, in most games since Xmas and playing fucking two goalkeepers at once wouldnít have prevented the elementary mistakes were making at the back leading to gilt edge chances for the opposition in every game we play.

Baston maybe deserves benefit of doubt but letís face it here, based on his performances in England since he arrived he looks crap and Drinkwater is gone at the game so Iíd say recruitment in Jan, given our position, was horrific.

Iím not sure Iíve understood your logic re Reina. He is a good player but because our defending has been poor he is a bad signing?

Baston is a third/fourth choice centre forward for us, it was hardly a signing to set the world alight but I would be staggered if many people had watch him at all closely before he signed for us.

Drinkwater hasnít been great, but has been getting better in my opinion and itís not like our other options are putting in incredible performance either - Nakamba was very poor yesterday for one

Heís not been mentioned but Samatta looks a decent signing so far..

Iím not saying the recruitment was great, but given the unpredictable injuries and that it is a difficult window anyway, I donít think the club did that badly. Certainly there wasnít loads of other realistic transfers that took place where I think we should have been making those signings instead - even if it was that simple.

Agreed, our recruitment has been desperate. With the likes of Grealish, and to a lesser extent McGinn and Mings, I thought we would give it a real go this season. Sheffield United have shown up the supposed quality in the division for what it is.

Name the club and name the player that was signed in January that we should of been in for.

Why is that limited to players that were signed in January?  They weren't the only ones available.

It was a response to the players we had signed in January being called out.

If you're saying there's no-one better we could have signed you have to consider everyone who was or might have been available, not just the ones who moved.  I defy anyone to say there was no better player than Drinkwater available.
