    I could see that. They're well suited.
    I really, really rate Doc. I think he's class but he occasionally has a stinker and his head goes down. This means his bad games are ****ing awful.

    You could be right,but I seem to remember Laurie saying something like.He's there for the season with no recall option.

    I'm in agony with me back so I'm probably talking more *******s than i usually do.:p

    Not actually a rumour as such but I have just seen on Sky Sports News that Odion Ighalo is available and keen for a return to the premier league from the Chinese league. I believe the fee is £20m.
    I thought he looked great at Watford. Not quite sure what happened in the end or why he left.
    Might be worth considering due to the dearth of decent strikers at reasonable prices. He is 29, but has an excellent goalscoring record.

    Southampton are keen on signing Everton forward Ademola Lookman. Daily Star.

    He would be a good option for Wolves.

    Michy Batshuayi is being recalled by Chelsea from Valencia. Worth a shout.

    Batshuayi scored 1 goal in 15 appearances for Valencia. What went wrong? He scored 7 in 10 for Dortmund.

    He was one I had hoped we looked at last summer, don't know what has gone wrong at Valencia but he has apparently fallen out with their owner

    I think Bonatini has something lined up but he won't move until we get someone in

    Two or three injuries would really screw us up, that's why it's too small. We're playing with fire a little right now for me.

    Screw what up exactly, do you honestly think we could get involved in a relegation battle with two or three injuries, ie not win another 3 games?

    He's only started in 4 games to be fair. Seems to be a poor fit for them. I'd take him on loan with option as others have said, option would probably be similar in value to Jimenez.

    I didn't say that, but 2 or 3 injuries to key players could see us finish 12th-14th instead of 7th-9th. That could have a big impact on the kind of players we can attract in the summer.

    Yes please. Wanted him in the summer. Ball playing centreback with high potential.

    Highly doubt it, players will assess our ambitions on what we do in the summer and the discussions they have with the club not whether we finish 9th or 14th.

    Completely disagree. Our ambition won't change either way, the fundamental and dynamic variable in our potential attractiveness to transfer targets will be our final league position. Finishing 9th vs finishing 14th would have huge implications on that front.

    Come on Rhos! Look at the squad as a whole. We have been very lucky with injuries. Couple of injuries and we would be in trouble. Squad is light on numbers compared to quite a few other premier league clubs.

    Why, we finish 14th and spend £50m on a player in May or finish 9th and spend £5m in May, which has the greatest impact?

    How do you define trouble?

    We all know JOS if we sign 2 players next week you'd still have a mega meltdown on the 31st if we signed nobody else.

    Why not build now and try and finish as high as we can this season? Obvious we need another attacking player, possibly wing back and centre back to supplement the squad. You look past Boly, Coady and Bennett and we have Saiss and Dendoncker both of whom are preferred in central midfield. Jimenez has no real competition and we could do with another wing back.

    It isn't about the money. To some (I'd argue most) players, the club's final league position matters. If you can't see or understand that, sadly I'm not going to waste my time explaining it to you.

    OK if you think any player will see a mega-difference between 9th and 12th up to you, agree not worth debating further.

    I define trouble as going into games potentially without a proper goal scoring threat or focal point of attack if Jimenez wasnt playing. I would also be very concerned if Boly was out. Yes I love transfers but looking at our squad it is too light on numbers in my opinion.

    Makes sense to me.

    When we have Thelwell, Mendes and Nuno trying to get a player to buy into ‘the project’, convincing them we’re not a newly promoted club but one that’s looking up...7-9th rather than 14th backs it up.

    Ok fair nuff a lot of modern players will want to see the money and other high quality existing players and additions too, but it all paints a picture.
