...given the signings in this window. Will the fans be happy with this or will they be saying we can’t afford it?! We can’t have it both ways.

 

I would have saved the money and put what we can spend to squad rebuilding in pre-season but still good to see giving it a go and helping Monk.

There was no option of waiting until the summer in my view. 

Real risk unless new striker/s and new faces were brought in the recent poor form would continue and we could very easily quickly sink down the league.

Would have liked to see a few heading out. Either loans or permanent. Might have given those left a kick up the arse.

 

But happy with what he's allowed in

I feel like DC is trying... the same things that have got us in a mess before. 

 

Feel it really is now or never this season for him. If that is indeed the plan, we haven't gone big enough in this window.

If they deliver and we get to the promised land he will be a hero.  Should we fail the knives will be sharpened.

LIterally WTF?

 

We are still in with a shout this season.

 

Wickham is a good January signing.

 

The other two aren't bad either.

 

Why give up now = we still have to get our arse into gear in the summer either way.

 

Too many bloody defeatists these days.

 

UTO

How would you have approached it if you had to make the decision? Genuine question... Just interested to know the range feeling given where we are.

I’m not one of them - I approach it as how do we achieve the most within the financial constraints and honest about where we are this season. As I say, good to see he has gone for it but I do appreciate what it might mean down the road - something that the negs seem to ignore until it doesn’t work out and then it’s all DCs fault

Think overall we have done well to get so high in the league to say we have only one scoring forward.

if not what’s the point ?

Yeah, maybe, maybe not, but what if we did somehow cobble a bit of sustained form together ...

All Villa fans were probably saying the same thing this time last season.

It's just a massive shame the lads here have put in some absolutely pathetic performances over the last month which has seen us slide down the table.

I sort of understand where you are coming from but given the complete dross we have offered up at home since Fletcher got injured it was vital we got someone in up top.  

 

Would have been nice to be able to offset the signings with some players leaving but we can only get rid if others are willing to take them and based on what the ones we don't want have offered up lately, that was unlikely to happen.

Honestly we've got as much chance going up this season as next season, or season after

I prefer the term realist.

It's a unique quality that most of our fan base lack, it allows me to look at things without my blue and white specs, it even allows me to ask such questions as "how the feck have we ended up in this mess" and come up with very plausible answers like we have an inept owner, all without feeling guilty that I may have mislaid my SWFC support.

Monk confirmed today that Cruz was his signing. He also said he was hoping for 2 more that were available and doable which suggests all 3 are what he asked for.

 

Thats a chairman backing his manager and I’m happy we’ve maintained an approach to recruitment we adopted when Bruce came in.

 

To me that’s evidence he’s learning and should be applauded. I’d have been very angry if we went back to advisors seeking targets and the manager having to work with what he’s given.

 

Maintain this in the summer, move some on and allow Monk to bring sone of his own staff in and I’ll be even more impressed
