I am trying to think back to previous seasons but it hurts ny head at this time in the morning lol. We have bought 5 in this window (so far and not including Davies as he came last season really), is this the most he has bought in one window since joining us?

I wasn't sure where to put this link, Mr Fear. Hope it's not out of place here... This morning's Times has this story about the ongoing Barry story and it does raise some interesting questions, particularly: if Liverpool had the money in place to sign Gareth and only missed the deadline by "fifteen minutes" what're they waiting for? Could GB end up being our 'best signing of the summer' after all? Is it just more media-make-believe? Does anyone give a monkey's anymore?

I never understand people who slag off his transfer windows,I think they just got so frustrated with how long it took to get a right back.When it is laid out like that you can see he has stengthened the team quality wise every time.Nice work fear.

Now think about how much we have spent all together then think about how much TV revenue we have receieved over the last three seasons, this season alone we brought in 45m from TV Revenue. We are still short of a Centre half (Mertesacker/Kaboul) A centre midfielder (Johnson/Bullard) a right midfielder (Santana/Pederson/Milner/Lennon/SWP) and another Striker (Huntelaar - I wish) Then i would say we are ready for the season to begin.

Lerneravfc, tell me was there any need to sell Aaron Hughes ?? No there wasn't and i think with him on the right and Mellberg in the centre along side Laursen instead of Knight would of made quite a difference i think, that in my eyes was pretty bad, and have you noticed every time he has sold before he has brought, not very good tactically.

Villa4ever,sDo we should spend money just because we have it?It is a buisness the idea is to try an balance the books as much as possible,Unless you want villa to go bankrupt.I think to make the progress we have and still only spent that on transfers shows our club is being run the right way.And as for hughes maybe he wanted to go?You are obviously determind to focus on the small obscure negatives rather than the huge postives, so you crack on mate.

What's the point in having a billionaire if you spend bugger all ? Yes the club is running smoothly, but i still think we needed to spend money last season more, Young 2.5m last season, Defoe 7m, Lennon 6-7m, hardly breaking the bank but i think we would of got 5th, We are still without a class finisher something Defoe was.
