I'd keep Drinkwater and break the bank to get Baston back. Champions League Winners 2023.

Never mind fucking about with philosophies or credos. This is the Championship; we need no-nonsense, couldn't give a fuck warriors. It's going to be Gustavo Bartelt's year next season.

Pinch of salt time here but my coach mate at villa has said the following.

If we go down the budget will be 40 million ish regardless of how much we make from selling the big boys.

If we stay up we will spend between 80-100 million on 3 or 4 players with a cb who's already passed a medical from a premier league club the number 1 target. (If we go down it swaps to a loan to buy)

Makes perfect sense, if we go down.
I think Jack and Tyrone will definitely go, by all accounts so will Trez and possibly Doug. I'm not altogether sure SJM will want to go.
Given that, I think our squad will be pretty decent, so 2x 20m players and 2x Loan to buy would probably be all we'd need.

The numbers sound a bit dissapointing to me, particulalry if we stay up, considering we're hoping to get 60m + for Jack.

I think if we stay up there may well be only a few leaving, those who are not generally around the first team squad.  With the addition of a central defender, left back, midfielder and an attacker this squad, with having had a full seasons experience behind them, should be good enough for a mid-table finish.

When did he pass the medical? January but he went somewhere else last minute?

We can't keep having the same level of churn of players and need to settle the squad down.  I think it is highly likely we will go down and need three or four players at the most to try to get back up.  Arguably, this is the same for the Premier division if we stay up as we need a bit of quality rather than quantity.

Axel?

I put 2 and 2 together and came up with him.

Someone asked about the medical and it was last week apparently not Jan. He said last Thursday which is again how axel popped straight back into my head.

As for the figures being low he said the key word is sustainability and that he feels Smith is only here because the other managers we are interested see the budgets as to low
