I don't think I've ever been so pissed off with the signing of a player as I am with the signing of Drinkwater.  In the last 12 months he's been nicked more times by the police than he's been pic

i just hope whoever we buy is an improvement on some of the so called players that we have

About to sign Borja Baston apparently...whop de bloody do. That doesn't smack of last minute desperation does it. I hope its a loan because there is nothing in this players past to suggest he off

Sounds like we're happy to go with nyland, Kalinic and Sarkic. With steer still to come back from injury. 

Also sounds like we'll be getting a striker or two, Smith isn't sure how many at this point. 

If we ended up with batshuayi on loan to buy, bowen, and another couple would that be so bad? Drinkwater on loan, take a pop at mcneil from Burnley?

Rumours last night suggested we will look at Joe Hart as a goalkeeper option.

I love how Smith stated that we need proven players in January and he will make a couple of loan and permanent deals. He said he wants 'plug in and play' players who he can just drop into our team and they will do a job.

Hart would fit that mould, but is he up to it anymore?

We have goalkeeping options and the best keeper in the world isn't going to keep us up without some better outfield players.

If FFP is an issue another keeper should be some way down the list of priorities.

Smith has alluded to what we need, proven players who will improve what we have now.

Smith told sky today that they're looking at goalkeeper options. 

Is it me if does preparation for this window seem very Unorganised? 

Seems like Chelsea are making everyone wait until they have another striker on board before allowing batman or Giroud leave. One would be decent, both would be immense. 

Bowen has been spotted at Bodymoor, apparently. Take that with a pinch of salt

This FFP has been dismissed by both the manager and DOF.

The article also come from the Daily Mail. Which is as bad as the Sun these days.

And in the article it goes on to say 'IF VILLA WERE TO BE RELEGATED - THE EFL COULD BE LOOKING TO PUNISH THEM FOR FAILING FFP'.

I think they had plans for certain players and have had to look elsewhere for other options due to more injuries.

I think Giroud has and was the aim from the off and I also think he is just what we need. Someone with experience and someone able to hold up a ball.

The Bowen rumour has been going around for days now.

Although Smith did say he was hopeful of 1-2 additions before Manchester City.

Would love it if we signed Bowen, looks a really good prospect, certainly better than Trez or Ghazi.

Giroud would be an excellent signing in our current predicament, however we can't afford to wait around to see if Chelsea decide to release him.
