Are we going to buy or borrow a proficient goal scorer or are we content with the present situation?

Fletcher can get the odd goal.
Assombalonga is either injured or being held back for transfer purposes.
Gestede is, well, he is Gestede.

Possibly January window is not the time to buy and we are going to concentrate on next season, that it assuming we have already fought off relegation. [smi]

Lukas Nmecha? I'm not sure he's a Forward as such. He played wide for PNE in a 3 (also 4 goals in 40 games don't scream No9).

I think he's versatile and can play across a front 3 or off Fletcher. It's probably what we need while skint. A bit of versitility.

I think clearly CB is priority. I am sure Gibson is the No1 target but we seem to be linked with everyone.

I would only see a No9 coming in if we sell Britt. I don't think we can justify bringing another in already having Britt/Fletcher and Rudy (some wages those 3 are pulling in).

It will get revisited in the summer when Rudy feckd off for nowt[sad]

Nmecha is a striker who can also play off the left

All three of those sales are injured aren't they? Could that not hamper your sales.

I know we take your rumours with a large pinch of salt, but that Ayala one is crazy. He's currently injured and why would anyone pay anything near £10M when he is available for free in the summer!

Getting shot of 3 players and replacing them with loans? [rle]

We could lose 6 players in the summer for free. Then sell off 3 contracted ones? How many players are we gonna need in the summer? [rle]

One things for sure this boro squad will look very different come August.

It's Newyddion, you know how his transfer musings go.

I think we only need to bring in a striker if we sell Assombalonga, and I don't think we'll sell him.
Wish somebody would come in for Gestede though.

I doubt we will get another one in and we have looked better while Britt has been out

I expect the summer to bring more strikers though

Right now Id prefer we brought in a no 10 to be honest

I didn't miss the ManCity lad Edis, but I really meant someone with potential to actually score a few goals now and enable us to have a serious attempt at the playoffs.

I genuinely think once Roberts is fully up to speed and more so fitness he can more than do a No10 role. He's got enough about him from his brief cameos.

I think CB is clearly a priority. That said Shotton and George are playing for U23s soon. You get Ayala back you'd almost say we don't need one (with Wood as well).

I can see George as a left footed CB in a 3. That said he's injury prone so still need one.

12 Joel Latibeaudiere
15 Reece Oxford (charge more for the x)
18 Adalberto Peñaranda

I'm assuming it's too late for this season.. but we can double our money on Deal Fry with

Frypan 97 (it has his birthday in there too)

Wood-Gordon 25 is a complete no brainer or perhaps Woodchip and tie in a sponsorship deal with one of the local arboriculturists [:O]

Wingspan 69 is something a bit fruity for the older generation and a sure fire hit for the LADS! LADS! LADS! on tour with their banters.

Signing Messi wouldn't give us a serious chance of the playoffs.

40 points in 17 matches is not going to happen.

We shouldn't base recruitment on pointless pie in the sky wishful thinking.

2 points a game is league winners form, only 1 team has ever got in the playoff with 69 or less points. The average to finish 6th is 73 points. We are 80 to 1 to finish in the top 6 for a reason.

Us under Colin Todd, I think? The play off places went down to 7th place that season, allowing an unusually low points total to scrape in.

"36 points from the next 17 games ending in a 71 POINT FINISH"

You have a chance of making it with 71 points, but no better than 1 in 10.

To have any chance of the play offs we need to win most games
To win most games we need to score more goals than we have been
To score more goals we need players who have a track record of scoring goals consistently
We need at least one consistent goal scorer or two if Britt or Rudy go .
The next week will show the ambition for this season , no new goalscoring striker mean we are happy to stay mid table .

Ambition or foolishness?

This season is now all about building for next.

No point chasing rainbows for the sake of looking "ambitious"

We should be signing players now , which is building for next season .
Plenty of time to settle in between now and the new season .
We are already going to have to replace 6 who are out of contract if they go .

If they're signings for next season fine, but that's not showing ambition for this season, is it?

I'd also add that January offers precious little value: it's when desperate clubs make signings.

I'm still not convinced we have any money to make a perm signing. It wouldn't surprise me if the majority of the Randolph money (hardly any to start with) will go on loan fees and wages.

I expect spence / pears and Tav to sign up this month. I would also like to see Howson tied down.

We could do with one or two in on a perm with an eye on next season. Just don't have the dosh[sad]

I agree that getting into the playoffs is long odds especially since the "Manager of the Month" hit us, but we have to go for something to keep us awake until May.

Besides Frozen H, I think that signing Messi WOULD put us in with a chance of making the playoffs. [:D]
