    Good to hear, though it might be too late and the list of those keen to come here will be more limited.
    Funnily enough I was really impressed by the summer signings at the time. Dawson looked a good solid experienced British CB at a good price. Welbeck seemed a coup if he stayed fit. Sarr looked a great prospect and at a price which suggested we were really trying to make our mark. We held onto Doucs and GD. The only weakness seemed to be LB/RB and it was clear we'd tried to bring Rose in to cover the LB position. It's just suprising how quickly it's all unwound.

    I agree. I was of the same mind. I wasn't too sure about Sarr, even before we signed him, especially for the price being quoted. But I thought Dawson would be good (got that one very wrong) and I am still amazed we signed Welbeck. So those two signings should have been a good start, but was nowhere near enough.

    We needed two quality central defenders and at least one wing back, preferably on the left. I think the Rose attempt was a little bit cheeky on our part. I doubt we'd get him now, unless our form rapidly improves, although maybe a loan with a view to a permanent deal if we stay up could be done.

    This is what I think we'll be looking to do. Get players in, on large loan fees, in the hope they'll come to us. No one of any quality (certainly not the quality we need) will sign permanently for a club fixed in the bottom three.

    Yes I didn't really rate Rose anyway so wasn't too sad we didn't get that one over the line. When is the last time we had a really good RB or LB who could defend and attack ? Struggling to think of one recently. Cassetti ?

    Danger is we spend big on defence in January and stlll get relegated.

    Left with high earners who probably don't want to play in the Championship.

    I think we'll be trying to sign quality loan players, with a view to make permanent if we stay up.....something along those lines.

    We'll be stung on loan fees no doubt, but then we kinda deserve that really.

    Good idea but how many are you allowed?

    2.3 I thought.

    I think it's two. That's fine, one centre half and a left back, absolute priority is the left back. I noticed Danny Rose wasn't in the squad Saturday

    2.3 players. Would the .3 be Danny Rose in this equation?

    He's really not a great defender. I hope we don't spend a bucket load on him and then expect the defence to improve.
