So the players have started where they left off last season and, presumably, how they mean to go on.

euuuuuugh. Holman's attempted cross at the end and trying to claim a corner summed it all up. El Almahdi's in my fantasy team on the plus side :-|

I thought we were maybe 2 or 3 £4mill players short, now its looking more like 2 or 3 £10mill players we need. I'm not doubting the potential of some of our lads, but there's little or no immediate quality in that team - and I'm usually quite positive! Looking at the next 2 games I can't see us picking up any points either which is a bit scarey.

Defence in general weren't bad, Baker especially but Given could've/should've saved 2 of them, Banann was pointlessly hollywood passing (sideways now instead of forward?!?!) and Bent hardly had a touch ( AGAIN .)

Not sure what's happened to you boys, it wasn't long ago we were fighting it out in the top 6, you could be in big trouble this season.

Villaiain - I don't think it's the 10m plus players that we necessarily need; it's the quantity. We're poor because there's no quality throughout the team. We could get 4-5 4m players and completely change our fortunes in no time.

Only plus is that we have a cup game to re-group and maybe try a few other options. Weimann and caruthers have to be an imrovement surely?!

You're right johnnyuk, what I meant was we need players with quality to improve the starting 11, not just for strength in depth like I originally thought. By 10m I just meant that thats the sort market value of players like Adam Johnson, Matt Jarvis etc. Even players like De Guzman who's a find for Swansea was about 6mill I think, and we need 3 or 4 of him!
