interesting to see how quickly we get whoever they want this January. Still think the summer will be the major time, Jan the players you really want are seldom available really are they?

Thank god we don't have MON anymore. I got bored of waiting until the last 5 days of every window to find out if we were going to buy anyone!

Agreed with above... transfer window might involve anxiously looking at the news each day waiting for news of a player coming in and it actually happening!

Scott Dann to replace Dunne? Would he fit into a new look back four and more to the point does anyone rate him as he is at the sty. Really tho i agree with the above comments as it actually might be exciting this window, let's hope we aren't going fo rany has beens though. My picks are a keeper, defender, full back and striker.

Pires was never going to be a transfer to dramatically make an impact on the pitch. His experience is absolutely invaluable and it gives player like Albrighton the chance to soak it all up and learn as much as possible..

Sorry holte ender but a centre mid is desperately needed... lassana diarra or yann m'vila would be my top targets but that a lil bit ambitious... CF, CM, CB need to be addressed before the fullbacks or gk need to be replaced... and if you disagree you should take a long hard look at our squad and then look at our rivals...
