The transfer window closes this week and so it has been a very quiet one and surprisingly so given the money next season.
If we look at our rivals for relegation then you have a few like us
Southampton – sacked manager no signings
Reading – some signings at the lower level
QPR – typical Redknapp a shit or bust tactic
Newcastle – Obviously got an agent in the French market raking it in with a manager who can barely speak English never mind French
Us – well we know … No activity
Norwich – No activity
Fulham – No activity
Wigan – Usual Wigan cheap signings see if Martinez’s ability to keep picking stays with him
In fact overall there has been little movement. If we want to look at say MON then he has brought two foreign signings this window, how strange eh ? But I count Sunderland out of it anyway.
So I dont think that we are that much weaker when compared to other teams since the window opened but we were weak anyway. I do expect some activity at Villa PArk in the next few days and I certainly expect the others to move. It will be an interesting week especially with a massive match to come.
A match that is yet again another ‘must win’ game, something we have done poorly on.
