    * how? So you rate the Finish league and the American College leagues highly? The rest being loans from academy players not getting a look in. Can't argue with fact that anyone we haven't loaned doesn't come from highly regarded stock. So instead of just saying "*" how about you actually back up your opinion with something cohesive. To answer your question, honestly I'm not happy I thought BR slating the board, crashing out the CL and losing to the huns would've gave the board some incentive to allocate a fraction even of what we have brought in year on year. I gave them too much credit

    Plenty time, It’s only the 10th.

    Rodgers has said he is looking to add some experience, I assume he’s talking about defensive additions. (RB and CB)

    Folk moaning on the 10th are bonkers. 1st of February is the time to reflect on the window.

    You said still scraping the barrel,,,,,,,did
    you think that when paddy Roberts, Sinclair Odsonne Etc came, because they were non playing or potential.
    Weah is at PSG they have the option of the cream of the youth in the world.
    Burke has went for massive amounts of money.
    Bayo looks to be a good addition to me as well.
    Benkovic is a loanee.
    Like notorious said above some *,,,,

    In fairness, I'll believe it when I see it. He's said a lot of things in regards to transfers in recent windows which just haven't materialised.

    This is a massive window...the biggest for a few years.

    Big few weeks ahead. As ever I hope we aren't reflecting on what might have been come February.

    3 experienced players could.make a massive difference.

    After the farcical summer window we really had to get players in the door, hopefully we can add another 2-3 before the end of the month.

    It’s a good start to the window.

    Still in dire need of another couple first team ready players. RB and CB.

    Ideally a goalkeeper as well.

    That's what's needed at the minimum, Prof.

    Boyata, Benkovic both won't be here come June. Burke and Weah too if we are taking the 6 months as gospel.

    We need to factor that in before even thinking of adding to the squad with them included.

    Defence is a big concern for me.

    This window should only be about quality signings who will make a difference, not development/projects etc etc, a glance at the League table tells us that we need to strengthen the first 11.


    Supporters don't give a * about the money in the bank, it's all about the product on the park, we really need tae flex our financial muscle during this window, no more fannying around !

    The defence is a big concern for everyone and I would like an experienced beast of a man in central defence, but I really don't get the negativity here. There are three weeks left in this window and we have significantly improved our attacking options. I understand we know little about any of the players, apart from Burke, but those are the markets we need to exploit. Nobody can moan about them because nobody knows how good they are, if they turn out to be * we can all have a go.
    As for the American lads, these are a free shot. Why not sign them? They are hardly going to be on 20k a week and are therefore a cheap gamble, if one in ten of these types of move works out it's a result.

    What would be nice, alongside the aforementioned defender, is to get rid some of those surplus to requirements.

    Agreed. This window is off to a solid start which is good but we have much to do still. Weah for all intents replaces Griffiths and if come summer time Griffiths is still a no go for at least the start of next season I would not be surprised if we might have the option to at least extend his loan another 6 months. Bayo I guess in many ways is Dembele's replacement. Time will tell whether he is 2m well spent or not. So for now I am ok with the forward situation. Buke in on loan helps give cover on the flanks which we needed but we will still need to bring in another winger later this month or come the summer on a permanent deal. I am still hoping against hope that winger ends up being Patrick Roberts on a permanent deal.

    But the next 3 weeks for me is mostly about the back line. Benkovic is gone in the summer and unless something very unexpected happens and Boyata signs the deal he was offered we will need 2 new center backs come the summer and for me at least 1 needs to get signed now. We also need a righ back to bring in to take over from Lustig. In an ideal world we would get in a quality keeper who can actually play with his feet as well to take over from Gordon but that for me that at least is not an immediate need. What is an immediate need though without a doubt is at least 2 quality defenders before February 1 for me.
