Oldest looking 20 year old I have ever seen.
Maybe he was born in Nigeria.

We're not going to sign anyone significant are we (bar maybe a pointless loan deal)? Not even getting linked with anyone.

West Brom are yet to receive a bid for Saido Berahino. Could get Fellaini back for a fiver.

Nah, not much out there and - I agree - not a disaster as long as the squad remains healthy and ready to kick arse.

Yep,  I still reckon we will bring someone in, probably on loan, Martinez dropped a bollock by saying we could make a big signing this month because the fans will expect it now and are starting to get restless because it hasnt happened yet.

Would be nice to replace Naismith with someone, maybe on loan until Swiss Kid comes in.

And I would feel more confident with a Coleman backup in the run up as we really don't have any proper cover there apart from kids.

The rest can wait until the summer.

Like others have said, better options than Kone for back up is what I would like to see in the window.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to replace Steven Naismith. I can't see Roberto taking a chance on Lukaku not picking up an injury for the rest of the season. Kone's not good enough to deputise, IMO. If he does decide not to bring another striker in he's leaving our results open to an element of luck. In my view personally, it doesn't show adequate professionalism If he takes that risk.

He's done it before in his first season, and as soon as the window closed Gareth Barry landed on Lukaku's shin and we looked fucked. He got lucky that time when it looked like he'd bet out for the rest of the season, it won't happen twice.

The minimum we should expect is a replacement for Naismith otherwise it was ridiculous decision to sell him to Norwich.

I don't think it's about whether Kone's good enough it's about depth, our third striker would be Henen or someone and they clearly aren't ready as they aren't making the bench.

Mirallas mate

January is a sellers window, not a buyers one.

Yeah I get that mate but nothing I have seen from Mirallas says he can do that job. It's why Shane Long isn't the worst shout ever. I think we will manage but it's a long season.
