Strange Transfer Window - Who've We Missed?

Strange Transfer Window - Who've We Missed?


Update on the 'who have we missed' transfer list in this weird transfer window!

Ok, so it is panic stations in the transfer window - (and before some get on the theme that only Aston Villa fans moan, trust me, running this network, I see comments from all clubs and most fans are the same) -

So during the panic, who exactly have we missed out on so far?

I've mostly only counted PL and SPL clubs.

Adel Taarabt [Tottenham - QPR] Undisclosed
Tal Ben Haim [Portsmouth - West Ham] Loan
Marco Alonso [Real Madrid - Bolton] Undisclosed
Lukas Jutkiewicz [Everton - Coventry] Undisclosed
Aleksandar Kolarov [Lazio - Manchester City] £16m
Titus Bramble [Wigan - Sunderland] Undisclosed
Eduardo [Arsenal - Shakhtar Donetsk] Undisclosed
Danny Wilson [Rangers - Liverpool] Undisclosed
Artur Boruc [Celtic - Fiorentina] Undisclosed
David Silva [Valencia - Manchester City] £24m
Kris Boyd [unattached - Middlesbrough] Free
Yossi Benayoun [Liverpool - Chelsea] Undisclosed
Martin Petrov [Manchester City-Bolton]
Steven Mouyokolo [Hull - Wolves] Undisclosed
Zoran Tosic [Manchester Utd - CSKA Moscow] Undisclosed
Philippe Senderos [Arsenal - Fulham] Free
Jermaine Beckford [unattached - Everton]
Steven Reid [Blackburn - West Brom] Free
Ben Foster [Man Utd - Birmingham] Undisclosed
Gabriel Tamas [Auxerre - West Brom] Undisclosed
Marton Fulop [Sunderland - Ipswich] Undisclosed
Kenwyne Jones [Sunderland - Stoke] £8m
Ramires [Benfica - Chelsea] Undisclosed
James Beattie [Stoke City - Rangers] Undisclosed
Craig Bellamy [Manchester City - Cardiff] Loan (They'd not have loaned to a PL team)
Jay Simpson [Arsenal - Hull] Undisclosed
Danny Welbeck [Manchester United - Sunderland] loan
Kevin-Prince Boateng [Portsmouth - Genoa] Undisclosed



So some of the Manchester City players would have been good. Sorry, we can't compete with them and pretty much no other team in the world can either.

Who else? Just wondering!

Love the amount of academy players coming through to the first team at last,much more satisfying than spending.

agreed PKing, would like us to sign a fox in the box, get rid of heskey and i think we would be in good shape.

If we bought one more player i'd be happy. I'm quite happy now with the way we're giving the young players a chance, but just to make sure we don't get into a mess if we have more injuries i'd like one more players. A centre-midfielder or striker probably. Or maybe a back-up winger if we're not playing Young there.

Do not think we have really missed out & our squad is not as desperate as we have come to think now that squad players & youth are getting their chance...Still a couple of players needed but would go with what we have if we had to, but am hoping we could strengthen with at least one in, but the manager scenario is not helping...

Huntelaar and Hleb added marco would make us a force.
