When you see how much we spent on Trez and Jota, why the hell did we not give RHM and COH a place in the squad and play them? They can't have been any worse! and in fact may well have been very good.
And, seeing Lansbury holding a squad place all season boils my blood.
There have been some fcukin' weird recruitment decisions!

How many transfers are driven by whatís good for the club as opposed to what's good for the agent and friends.

Targets and House should be nowhere near our team next season!

Southampton's 3rd choice left back and a Wolves player that couldn't get anywhere near the squad.

We signed Hause for what, £3 million? Essentially as fourth choice centre back and it gave us some continuity. Iím not sure we could have improved much on that.

I think he has shown enough that he would be useful next season within the squad if we did go down.

I'm surprised Hause hasn't been given a run at left back.  He played a few games there in the Championship, and looked pretty handy.  Hard to see him being much worse than Targett in any case.

I donít think he is good enough on the ball to play at full back. Targett, for his faults, has at least offered something reasonable going forward.

Whichever way you look at it, it's a complete and utter shitshow!

I have driven 477 miles today, to York and back, lots of time to think about villa.  i was wondering, if newcastle want McGinn, lets ask them for a swap with Hayden, he wants to move south and I wonder whether he might be persuaded to drop down a level, knowing that we will get back up?  We also need that physical presence in midfield.  Second one, I wonder if Albrighton might fancy coming back.  Experience, Villa fan.  Is Snodgrass getting games at West ham?  All three are experienced players and would do a job if and when we drop down.  We also need a commanding centre half.  Not sure who though.

Nathaniel Clyne released by Liverpool. He seemed decent a few years back but hasn't had many chances recently with Alexander-Arnold and Robertson establishing themselves as well some injuries issues. Might be worth signing if we stay up, full-back who can play on either side and still only 29.

That's a decent shout.  Watch Warnock snap him up and turn him into a ten million pound player!  Jordon Ibe released by Bournemouth.  The price tag probably weighed heavy but there is a player in there somewhere.

Has anyone dropped in on the transfer thread on Villatalk? Some of them are convinced we will be signing at least three £30m players even if we go down. Nurse!

Apparently we are looking to extend Drinkwater's loan with us.

Jesus. If thatís the case then weíve entered the nihilist phase of the managerial narrative arc. The only good news is that it tends not to last too long.

If we can stay up I would definitely be in for Todd Cantwell, if Norwich go down or not, exactly what we need.

Regardless of what happens this season any attacking signings we make need to consider the development goals for Barry, Archer, Ramsey and Vassilev, if we do go down I'd like to see all of them get 20-30 appearances next season. We need to be better at identifying young players worth developing and then giving them the chance to become part of the squad.
