Having just started a match without a single striker on the pitch, that's clearly the priority.

Signing another goalie, when Steer is also about to return to the squad suggests Dean thinks Nyland isn't up to it.

If Dean trusted Nyland he wouldn't be wasting 1 of our 2 loan signings on a 3rd choice keeper.

Clearly a striker is a priority, I doubt anyone at the clubs disputes that. I imagine itís possible that they can be working on various deals at the same time and for various reason this one was easier/quicker to complete.

Re - Steer. Hasnít Dean Smith spoken recently about him still being out for a couple of months? If thatís the case it would be a fair amount of games to rely on a goalkeeper who, while being good recently, was rather indifferent for us last season. Plus, Iím guessing Kalanic is quite likely to leave in this transfer window.

With the loan restrictions, is it not just two players on loan from English clubs? Iím not certain, but I thought you could loan more players from clubs in other countries.

Great to see him doing the pogo with the fans after the game.  Three great saves.

Haven't been a fan of his overall.

And he'd still give me kittens if he was in the side for an extended period.

But he'd be very unlucky to miss the final after his contribution in both legs.  Glad I don't have to make that decision.

Surely he won't be dropped after that.

Think he could improve over time learning from our no 1 keepers

He's been very good when called upon this season. Well done fella.

Magnificent tonight. I was in North Stand , three incredible saves. The one on to the bar, genuinely a worldy.

Should play the final ( if not next weekend )

One of the few occasions I let my heart rule my head where the Villa are concerned:

Reina should start on Saturday (and thereafter) if fit but Nyland should start in the cup final.

This bloke deserves huge credit for turning it around, he was bang ordinary last season.  His tip on to the bar was reminiscent of Steer's against the Tesco's in the play off semi at VP.  Tremendous save.
