Make no mistake Cahill was an excellent signing and i feel could comfortably go on for the 2 years of his contract so yes a good signing, but what does concern me is looking at the age of the majority of our squad and can only hope that players like Jach, Innis, Wood and Riediwald come good. But it is not just in Central Defence that age is a problem and management need to heed those warning signs.

Yep.

We didn’t get them but I was reassured that we at Made offers or at least were heavily interested in players like Chalov, James, Watkins, Castagne and Augustin though.

Talented lot there. Sounds from freedman comments that teams took the piss with demands knowing we had the AWB cash and we weren’t going to accept that or some simply didn’t want to sell.

At least we are looking to address the aging squad problem with what appears to be genuine quality. If we can get them of course

The problem bigend is all we heard was names thrown into the pot but no action, when the reality was we brought in players for a net outlay of around 8m that for a premiership club knowing there were crucial areas that desperately needed strengthening yet nothing was done, is unacceptable.
Freedman supposedly talks about "silly prices" quoted, true or not? but yet other clubs like Bournemouth and Brighton plus the promoted ones were able to strengthen by opening up the purse strings, sorry i dont buy the DF excuse.

Starting this season with the same mis-firing strike force whilst weakening our defence was very foolhardy. Within reason, you have to pay what you have to pay. We have been looking for a new striker for at least a year probably two.

It's even more crazy when we saw the difference having a goalscorer made to our results in the 2nd half of last season.

Parish said if you stand still you go backwards. Well if you go backwards, you go a long way backwards.

Quite right in what you say Eddie, summed up perfectly by our result and performance today and Mr Parish was watching and not surprisingly looked unhappy, maybe he should have looked harder at his team before the window shut and may have come up with solutions.
If our shambolic "performance today is anything to go by then we have a heck of a long winter ahead, also i dont see Zaha being around to rescue us this time.

If the guys with the money won’t release the cash then Roy and Dougie can’t do much but get in with the job and hope that they will get the financial backing. The clubs in a transition phase where they are building the set up behind the first team so it looks attractive to investors. The Americans aren’t going to spend money on players if it means they are losing money in the long term. Questions need to be answered by them and SP and not forcing Roy and Dougie to be escape goats. Roy was always a ‘short term’ solution to help stabilise the team whilst the club grows. We are so far behind other premier league clubs regarding the club structure.

Our major problem is that we never learn from our mistakes in the transfer market,we repeat them year on year.

We have weakened whilst our peers in the division have strengthened. We really looked relegation fodder today and everyone saw it coming. Taking a calculated risk to replace AWB with Ward again has been shown to be a shit decision already for one.

Made some confident clearances and really stepped up to organise things at the back, especially defending set-pieces. Probably still has a bit to do to get 100% sharp but a very reassuring presence today.

Did well, but his typical foul in the first half could have been red. His presence in the back line certainly made it more solid and organized.
