  • Our greatest need in the January transfer window?

    Know we still have a ways to go till January, but IMHO believe we should use the window to recruit two defenders (a CB and RB) before (and if) nothing else. Thank heavens we landed Baptiste in the middle, and hope Grant Hall is fully back in play by November, but beyond Onouha coming back we've got little else there -- Caulker is not going to ever return to his best; others not worth talking about. At RB we are truly hurting. Frustratingly, Furlong is still not a developed player, Onouha not a true RB, and there's no one else to fill the void. Consider this our #1 need. As for midfield, we look pretty stocked; and on the frontline, suggest we bring Eze into the first team after his loan and "gut it out" with our current less-than-stellar strikers.

    If Ollie stays might be an idea to get some wing backs and maybe fund that by selling a few of our surplus wingers.

    Aside from that a good loan striker from Premiership could do us the world of good. A club like us should be looking at 2-3 decent loans from the Premiership. Plenty of London clubs around us so no excuse for not taking advantage of it.

      One CB, one good striker. That's it. That'll see us comfortably mid table come the end of the season.
      Have to bear in mind that January is notoriously difficult to get decent players in.

        Not sure Hall is any better than the way Robinson has been playing ! if Perch can continue his early season form he will be more than adequate for the rest of the season imo a striker should be priority

          new striker is a must imo. rest of the team is doing okay all things considered, a new lb would be nice though as bidwell is always a 6/10 and doesn't offer us much going forward.

              If I were Olly I'd look at a RB and a striker or two.

              I know someone said it a few weeks back (and to be honest I thought they were daft at the time) but getting Austin back on loan seems to be becoming more and more of a possibility. Charlie really does seem to be out of favour at Southampton, and with the position they're in I doubt they'd release him to a rival club. If they want money themselves for the transfer window, loaning him to a championship club would be an option.

              Either that or we bring back the Polt and feed him.

                Anyone coming in will only be loans, there's very little or no money to spend

                        If you are talking about enquiring about Austin on loan then why not have a punt on getting Deeney or Ings ? Not sure Silva rates Deeney and Ings surely needs game time?

                            Depends how much those players want to play. Can always enquire, negotiate then end up buying a League 2 striker for peanuts.

                              Deeney is wanted by other prem clubs for 30 million so no chance he will drop on loan.
                              Ings could be a goer, hes another striker who will never start a prem game for his side again like chaz,
                              Wages is half each, so not to much of a problem if ffp allows it.
