So How Was The Transfer Window For You?!

So How Was The Transfer Window For You?!

So how was it for you darling?

Oh no, sorry, that wasn't what I meant to say at all. I meant to say so how was the transfer window for you?!? If I ask the other question as above I usually get 'rubbish' and 'was that it?' ! :o(

I meant to say, our latest poll asks for your opinion on the transfer window.

Is Heskey enough? I personally don't think it was for a lack of effort that we didn't see major action, not many clubs saw much happen and who would want to sell to a club like Villa who are clearly on a march?

Now we have what we have and have to hope and pray we make the top four, then the summer window (oooooh nooooo don't mention that transfer window already!) could be epic!

Hey, ever the optimist.

Anyway, what do you reckon? Good, bad or indifferent?

Think Heskey was the best bit of business out of all the teams, and considering that not many teams around us have strengthened, then we should be quite happy with Ivanhoe.

I would have taken Bent and a poke in the eye rather than Heskey, he is much more of what we needed since Carew is back now. I guess we will have to say how the rest of the season unfolds. I just cant shake the feeling of it being an opportunity missed, we are still in the UEFA cup the FA cup and hell still in the title race. With our small squad we cannot cope with all competitions, I would hate to see us underachieve this season because of our lack of ambition.

What year of the 5 year plan is it? Think we're ahead of schedule! And becasue MON does his dealing in private, I bet there are plenty that he has arranged for the summer, when clubs will be more willing to sell.

i get confused with the transfer window....apparently we dont have enough players to maintain a push on all fronts(mon)..so we then get a 32day window to buy some players,but we do nothing for 25 days then get in one player a good player no problem with that then we do nothing for 7 days and bodymoor was closed today despite the manager telling us he was working right up to 5pm to make something happen??apparently teams like tottenham can sign massive players in a couple of hours start to finish done..surely there must have been a few players that we could have used?i dont know who mon wanted but there was no reports of bids being turned down.and the press these days just dont 'not find out' about these things....so what did we do for the other 31 days????

Im glad we don't just buy for the sake of it, remember the djemba djemba days?! we needed a centre back and another striker, bear in mind freddie and big john are back in training now so they fill any gaps we may have adequately. as long as we can stay injury free we'll be ok. I'm sure MON/Randy tried to make some deals but there was little movement anywhere really. Up the Villa

sorry guys, but it's quite simple. MON inquired about players he fancied would do a job for us, but the other club have to be willing to sell them. Maybe he was waiting on answers once other clubs bought sufficient cover first before selling their stars. As someone Has said already, Heskey was probably the best bit of business of the window. At least we are not panic buying like a lot of other clubs have. Mon is prepared to wait for the right players to become available and I with him 100%. Lets stay positive and get behind the lads for the rest of the season.
