Still think we should have got Benrahma. Scored a stunning goal tonight.

If it was the first it was more or less a tap in. Ah, he scored a second. I'll look out for it.

We really appear to lack depth of quality in the squad. Let see what happens...

Its the bit of skill to kill the guy rushing out at him more than the finish, although both are pretty neat.

We finished 17th for a reason last year even with Jack in amazing form for three thirds of it.

To me this window was all about strengthening the first 11 considerably and I believe we've done that. Some of the regular starters will be moving down to the bench now.

Yes we're still short in depth but that will only be corrected over another 2-3 transfer windows. Sooner or later we will get rid of Jota, Lansbury, Taylor, Nakamba, AEG, Trez and they will need to be replaced.

Well we're only playing a game a week now til Christmas (less actually with two more International breaks). I can't see us bringing in another two or three in this window. We need to ship some out (as tonight made clear) and the Jan window is only 3 months away.

Hause getting a knock tonight if itís a few weeks out could perversely turn out to be the only positive from tonight if it pushes any recruitment towards another centre half.

Four centre halves would be enough if you had a youngster in the u23ís who you would be happy to promote to the bench, it seems we donít have that player in u23ís at the moment?

With Hause & Engels as only back up to Konsa/Mings we are a red card/medium term injury from a crisis.

I knows itís Bruceís negligence in leaving us woefully short at CB before he got fired that is making me nervous but I think we desperately need one in, preferably one who you would think of as 3rd choice CB....maybe someone like Cathcart from Watford or Worrall from Forest...an upgrade on Hause without breaking the bank.

Engels hasn't played since Leicester in early March so he's effectively been out of the picture for whatever reason for 7 months now, that's longer than players who break their legs nowadays who get back in six months.

Point is he'll be way off match pace and surely if he was actually fit he'd have played in the league cup ties just to get him sharp. It all feels one big Bermuda triangle mystery about what's happened to him but I really don't see him as a credible prem option.

So yes if Hause is out for Sunday then AEM is backup CB so that needs addressing.

I love that, and think he's a fantastic player. Sign him up, Villa!

Taking a step back, the window so far has been ok with that we have bought. I am only really pleased with the goalie and Barkley. Watkins, has to step up to a higher level, can he do it? Traore, need to be convinced esp after y-day.

We need another striker in case Watkins doesn't work out or he gets injured, more pace in MF and a LB....being greedy.

Oops, forgot Cash....Good buy.

Lots of work still to do. Our first XI looks so much better. The rest though are weak, and shows just how bad our recruitment has been for some time. This has been a good window, if no one else comes in.

Take the nastiness out of Diego Costa's game and he is very ineffective. VAR 'has and will' see to that. With suspensions, he couldn't even sit on the bench. A big 'no' from me.
