    Good explanations about how and why some of the deals fell through - not all the fault of the Albion. Some moaners won't like that!
    Hmmmm, if you've compiled reports on nearly 2000 strikers and fail to sign any of them, the club has plenty of fault in it's process.

      True.

      But @StatBrother, are you allowed your opinion?

      I'm not no, but that appears to have not stopped me.


      Only a few days ago my opinion was eviscerated by a poster who later made the same opinion elsewhere.

      You will be banging your head against the wall with some posters. They simply will not have it

      I'm disappointed that we didn't land a striker, of course, but all this talk that we are doomed to relegation etc and heads must roll is pathetic given the proper context
      The proper context is in the first three games we've lacked anything that remotely looks like a cutting edge up front.

      Many fans have noticed this and noted we are down to one fit striker.

      That augers very badly for us given we now have to wait 4 months before we have any chance to rectify that situation.

      If it was another club in this situation I don't think our fans would have an issue saying that club is doomed to fail in the PL because of that situation.

      It is what it is however, we've made our own bed and now we must lie in it.

      If our midfield can't deliver our goals, we are doomed to go straight back down. Let's hope they go gangbusters as they are our best hope.

      Spain beat Italy last night without any recognised strikers on the pitch!

      I know, our team hasn't got quite the same options as the Spanish national team, but it's interesting to note all the same

      As I've said before, Izquierdo needs to convert to a striker and become Roy of the Rovers.

      There are so many doubts about so many parts of our team at the moment that we need a miracle. That's not impossible but improbable.

      A few days of reflection make me realise that what I felt as the window slammed shut on our fingers was just huge sadness at what might end up being a missed opportunity to establish BHA in the top flight. Of course it's not all over, but staying up will be harder. We got a foothold in 79-83 but couldn't hold on. This time it felt like Tony was doing everything right. Strong team, great manager, spending boldly but not recklessly. Just needed that striker to make it feel like another step forward. And for whatever reasons, we stumbled for the first time since the decision to appoint Sami.

      We're all disappointed. Just imagine how Tony feels! But we press on. Still a whole season to enjoy, all to play for. UTA

      Incorrect.

      The deal sheet submitted to get the extra 2 hour window only contains details of the fee and payment structure agreed between the two clubs. There's nothing in there about the individual player having agreed terms.
      Incorrect. The player needs to sign too. It's not helpful that the PL website only shows the top half of the form (!), but the full form shows it clearly, as shown in this vid from Sky.
