January Transfer Window
« on: October 29, 2020, 02:51:09 PM »
Not sure if there is a scheduled transfer window in January  this season but if there is one what do we need to do?

And is Lundstrom at Sheff United any good? BBC say he has one year left on his contract and has refused to extend it.

Justified though. The next window isn't too far away and the Villa management need time to review and act on the ideas we post ;)

I'm not sure about specific positions but I'd like them to look at the U23s and where they don't think we have a player capable of coming in to the first team squad in the next 2-3 years I'd like to see us looking at signings in the U23 age range to come in initially as squad filled but with the aim for them to be pushing for starts within a year. Big marquee signings are for the summer when we know where we stand in the league.

Of course if we have something emerge as a problem in the squad in the next month or 2 then that needs addressing as well but that's not something we can know just yet.

If we're still pushing in the top 4..... A marquee signing or two would be really helpful... 😉

I would go for additional quality and depth in midfield. We are one or two injuries away from becoming really thin. We saw how a less than fit Barkley hampered us.

Sign a central midfielder with some fecking physicality! The lack of, will be the difference between top half and bottom half.

Id be looking to get a few more youngsters out on loan.  Ramsey for example is not going to get enough games.

If we get the chance Id still sign a marquee DM/number 8.  Barkley is only on loan so buying his replacement now, when flying, is a good opportunity.
