Well, I'm a bit lost. We have less than 2 people per position in defence - and unless Vertigo plays left back, we're a bit exposed there (given BAE on loan) - BUT we have what, about 11 midfielders for 4/5 positions?:

Then only 3 up front - one of which AVB doesn't appear to rate at all (Ade), and the other that he seems to have the same faith in as the other managers we've had recently (Daffy).
So, instead of 'targetting' specific areas, it just seemed to me that AVB blanket reinforced the midfield in general. I'm not saying that the purchases aren't good (only time will tell - but I like the way Capoue has played) - I just wonder how many of the purchases then from only a season ago will be still here by the start of next season (I would hazard a guess that Glyfi and Holtby will go - and Dembele may) - and if that is the case I'm just not sure the temporary stop gap approach is a route that I like.
Having said that, we'll probably end up getting 3rd or above this season!
Not sure what they're doing, but when I realised that Yahoo had dropped the links and that people may then have a problem finding the site again, I went down and 'rated' all the old posts for as many unique users as I could find - so they all hopefully got an EMail from yahoo with a link back to the forum. I tried to explain it on the thread

Presumably a few just ignored the thread rating mail.
