In the context of where we are currently as a club, I think every signing has been very decent. Financially realistic with a focus on youth. 
 

In the context of where we were when DC walked through the door with £100m burning a hole in his pocket, the whole thing currently is incredibly deflating. 

I agree, I’m not too despondent with our signings so far, and they do meet the criteria you suggest, BUT, I’m not sure about the focus on youth. Sure, as usual, we’ve talked about that being our focus, but like last season, the reality is different Only one of the 5 could be classed as youth

One thing you can’t argue with is that every signing made this window is a player with something to prove.

 

I expect them to be committed which was missing when we signed journeymen previously.

Hope it’s not Borja Bastón ,  never done anything 

 

I really think we’ll have a go for either Chris Martin or Rudy Gestede

Quite the worse player I’ve watched in a Malaga shirt. He has potentially decent attributes, and there were high hopes when he was brought in on loan He was positively dreadful though, could barely control a ball, was constantly outmuscled and fluffed simplest chances. Everyone felt for him but the more he tried, the more ineffective he was. In the end he went into his shell, his confidence shattered, and he was sent packing


Im sure you said something like this about Loovens when he was in Spain?

 

I guess Baston is a bit of a Sibon. Signed for the league above but has had some good spells in this league. He was signed for 15m quid once

Interesting we’ve described Windass as an attacking midfielder on OS (which I agree with) so probably be him, Brown and Kachunga behind a new striker hopefully. Some decent attacking options coming together now though with more to add fingers crossed.

Never saw him mate, but I’ve seen most of Baston’s games for Malaga

Baston scored 18 in La Liga for Eibar once, and had a good record in the Segunda before that. 

 

Didn't do much in the Premier League for Swansea but scored a goal every 211mins for Swansea in the Championship last season, then signed for Villa short term in January as backup as Swansea wanted him off the wage bill (contract was expiring in 6 months)

 

I'd be happy enough with that. He's 6ft3 too so offers us something more than just goals.

Windass Brown 

 

We're starting on -12, no need to start with 1 less player as well.

Why Lees? He's awful!  Can't pass  and strides round pitch like the tin man

 Things are bad enough starting on - 12 without playing with ten men as well.
