Twitter is awash with fans getting frantic over whether we will sign Guendouzi. But Iím not fussed about getting him this window, we donít need him, whereas we desperately need a striker and winger.

If we donít sign those two we have once again missed a huge opportunity. Fingers crossed

I would be shocked if some players donít come in -  just purely from a numbers perspective it would be nearly negligent not to

At this late stage in the transfer window, if we do sign anyone else itís likely to be another one of those budget busting £10 million signings, who Iíve never heard of before. I feel quite negative as,sadly, Iíve seen this film many times before at Villa.

Weíve bought some right stinkers late on over the last few years havenít we? I get the impression we wonít bother do this just to be seen to do something under Emery.

How many more do we need right now? I'd say 2/3 including a forward.

A winger, forward and CM. Starting quality not squad players. I think we are good everywhere else for now

I'm usually the first to want us to sign people and see us move forward, but there are a couple of things that makes me very relaxed at the moment. Firstly, we have 2 players across the back 4, from the end of Feb with Carlos returning. We were never likely to replace Olsen in Jan either, so shrug on that one until the summer. But it means at the back we are well covered. In central midfield we have Kamara, Luiz, Dendonker, McGinn and Ramsey if need. So we'll be OK without Guendouzi till the summer if it saves £10-15m waiting it out. Out wide we have Ramsey, McGinn in the Emery world, Buendia and Coutinho, plus Young if need be. So reasonably covered in the current formation. Up top we have Watkins, Bailey and Duran, which is light, and could do with a body ideally, but you don't want to pay big wages and Watkins start every game till the end. We might get 3-4 bad injuries and be screwed, but the club seems to actually be acting like it knows who and what they want in each position for once, and are happy to execute that in time. Emery is clearly driving that conversation too.

From a squad numbers perspective we're far too light. I always believe that if you let players leave that replacements are lined up first. We have an opportunity to challenge for the top 8, so if it fails fails due to lack of players then that's inexcusable. Let's hope for a couple in by this time in 48 hours, but it's getting awfully close to the wire.
