Wouldn't want him on anymore than a 6 month deal, but doubt he'd agree to that.

We don’t want to get stuck with someone on massive wages through their decline. Be crazy to sign him on anything but short term and cheap

Like Rooney,Genola,Gazza etc etc the list goes on think we touched lucky with Barry and the likes of Reid.
Nah swerve, bring on what we have or just get established.

The consequences of being saddled with a small army of players nobody wants.

Edit: Or can afford.

The good news is that signing nobody and sending a few players out on loan would be considerably better than last January.

Remember Tosun and his agent flexing to squeeze a higher wage out of us at the last minute? Any reasonable club would have told them to get fucked. We paid up.

I'm definitely much happier with this.

Nobody is buying players this month, there's no value at all.

A fun thing to do is to look at scoring leaders in the Turkish Süper Lig for the past three or four years.

Optional but recommended: shaking your head in disgust at what Sam Allardyce and Steve Walsh were up to last January.

didn't think it was that bad a shout tbh ha

hes available on a free, was a top striker in the past, 31 for 6 months is it that bad a shout? Ok he's had a couple of injuries (im not aware how bad they were), if theres no money available this month surely a free transfer for this fella would be worth a shot? Even on a pay as you play.

What is so repulsive about the idea of Calvert-Lewin being our centre forward?

Yeah, his numbers are boosted some by sub effects, but he has a better goals/minutes ratio than everyone at the club not named Richarlison (and it's close between the two of them) for a side that provides next to nothing in terms of service to its strikers. And that's giving Gylfi credit for penalties, which he doesn't really deserve because anyone can score a penalty (Calvert-Lewin included).

Unless someone with obvious quality (and value beyond the next year or two) becomes available for a good price, we don't need to bother adding a CF. We can just develop the guy we already have, who's actually pretty good and could get much better.

What we really need is a midfield. I'd entertain short-term options in that position because the balance in there is totally fucked and it's really holding us back.
