    3 - the striker was a known absolute must at the start of the window... how on earth we have failed to plug that gap is beyond me... inept, embarrassing & just plain stupid... not unlucky... the striker deal should have been done before the first pre-season friendly...

      Like that they addressed the goalkeeper issue with genuine competition. Also gave us a pacey option at RB which is useful,. Popper and Gross can be good signings once they get up to speed, less sure about Suttner, but the striker issue overshadows all of that . There has been a lot of hysterical rubbish on here this morning but it is hard to escape the conclusion that we are going to struggle to score enough goals to stay up. A striker was needed above all others and has not been secured. I voted three because I do think that error will relegate us unfortunately. I am sure there were a number of good reasons why it didn't happen but you cannot score goals with excuses.

      As far as I can see we haven't improved our strike force for the Premier League, so 1

      Too early to tell for sure, but at the moment it's around 4/5, if the new players do improve from first impressions (which is quite likely) and importantly contribute towards goal scoring (possible but unlikely?), then could be as high as an 8.

      2 From me as we havent done what we needed to bring in players to give us a realistic chance of avoiding relegation. We have brought in players that may be able to help us back next season. I cannot see how anybody could possibly say otherwise. TB & PB you have failed lets hope it doesnt cost us too dearly.

      They have addressed 1 position that was not necessary We didnt need competition for the GK spot as we already have that we just needed a safeguard back up for an emergency.

      Izquierdo was good. Not sure about the others yet, not getting a striker was bad though. 3 as it stands, but there is obvious room for surprise.
      Same here

      Smashed our transfer record 3 times, kept hold of players, signed players with international pedigree and some intriguing youngsters. Strengthened in nearly all areas.

      It's a4 from me.

      I have this vague memory of Albion sending a scout to N Ireland in the 60's to sign a forward and coming back with a goalkeeper.

      I have that same detached cheated feeling again. All those weeks when the supporters thought we wanted some strikers - did the club really feel the same? - and we finish with a couple of goalkeepers, sundry defenders and midfielders and new records in the cost of signings category.

      Got to hope it's good enough, I suppose, and fall back on thinking about new songs for players we'd never heard of before.
      Clearly we wanted Dwamena as a left back. Of course the club felt they wanted at least one Striker, that it did not happen is due to a failed medical, a club valuing higher than we did, and at least 2 players not wanting to move. These are the ones that have been in the press, anybodies guess how many others have gone the same way.
