Who are the four? Coutinho, Carlos, Kamara, Ings?

That would be my guess.

Digne must be on a big salary
Has to be Cash, surely?

Obviously still a little while left, but with Carlos being out for the season and Bailey's league outings so far, our squad is looking mightily like the one that was so inconsistent last season.  I'm starting to wonder if the owners are looking closely at Gerrard, or it's just that their targets aren't willing / aren't allowed to come.  Or something else! 

I don't see what Carlos being out injured has anything to do with any of that.

It has a lot to do with the first sentence, don't you think?  Kamara will improve us no doubt, but that won't be enough to achieve what we all hope for in my opinion. 

I still don't get why you brought Carlos up. If you think we need more across the board, then fair comment,  maybe we do.

My point was that now heís knackered, the team is only one (very promising) player better off than we we were for large parts of last season.  Donít see it being enough to realistically hope for a wildly different outcome.  But, there is still time of course. 

He did only get injured a couple of days ago. At least give them chance to bring in a replacement if they feel they need to.

Nah, they probably get it paid into their bank accounts these days

Even if Carlos were fit, I'm not sure we look hugely stronger than last season in order to push on. There was a lot of positivity about getting the transfers done early (and admittedly I'm not really counting Coutinho or Olsen as they were here already), but it's been a bit disappointing since.

He's hardly one of the big-hitters of the squad, financially. I imagine his new contract made-up for the fact that he was on chickenfeed at Forest when we bought him so there was lots of ceiling to boost him up.

We underachieved last season because we were too open through midfield. Kamara looks like a very good option to address that which should both reduce how many goals we concede and help us counterattack more effectively. Just those changes could be worth 10-15 points over the season.
I  would like another option in midfield though because with Sanson and Nakamba looking unwanted I think we look light in there.
Agree with this.

Itís still the midfield for me we have major issues with. One injury away from having to use week in week out a group who havnt been good enough so far.
Sanson ainít in favour
Luiz - personally donít rate - donít see what he offers
Ramsey - young and form will fluctuate
McGinn - been poor for a while

None of the above have anyone breathing down their neck to take their shirt off them. Thatís a major major issue.
We need more than any other position a top top CM. Not only will it immediately improve the 11 but will also improve the midfield squad by giving genuine purpose/competition for a shirt
100% agree.
Any developments on your previous post about us being in for one of 4 top midfielders?
The ones I know we were interested in havnt left their clubs yet to anyone

Who are they?

As someone (I think it was PW) put it last year, we always seem to end the window a player short.

It's the common complaint from managers. Particularly British ones, think Bruce and MON. Usually leads to lob sided squads. Right backs in Bruce's case, thinking back MON had a bit of a fetish for that position too.

Our first team squad is far too big at the moment, not the only club with that problem but players should have to leave first (our wage bill must be colossal). Let Gerrard whinge, huge money spent on Kamara, Carlos, Coutinho and Digne. The last two are yet to convince.

I listed a source that states Digne is on 163k a week highest earner.

Oh. Well I didn't intend to mislead anyone and I mean I made sure it was referenced. I guess we need to close the thread if it's false. Though did think there were some accurate readings like BK being 150k wage which was part of reason why we got him due to our generous wage offering.
I don't wish to be putting up wrong info.

I am concerned that no club has come in with an offer for any Villa player on the not wanted list. World beaters they are not but most would be useful. It leaves us with a long list of players on decent wages that will not cotribute.

That must be the problem. They're all paid too much on their current Villa deals for the clubs who are interested.

Kamara looks a good signing.  But we need another defensive midfielder as cover knowing our luck. 
If we can another Kamara I think we have enough until January.
