What do we need?
 
 
On the face of it, nothing.
Top of the league with a healthy goal difference.

However, weve scored the least amount of goals out of the top 4.
We did bid a sizeable chunk on a striker but failed in our attempts to lure Mo Eisa.
He may well be looking at the fact both teams in for him currently lie 1st and 2nd and thinking maybe he should of gone to one of them.
Kenny obviously wanted a striker and as yet not got his or a man.
Our position is one of strength and we do have the Money.
Come January I would hope that we will invest to win or at least get promoted from this league.
Who would you like to see us realistically go for?

Tom Eaves at Gillingham is doing well but could he play in the championship?
Jayden Stockley continues to do the business at Exeter and from his time here, we know he could fit in with Kennys team play.
Or do we persevere with Hawkins whos game play is impressing many yet goal return is anything but for a top of the league side?

Don't think any club would allow a striker to leave in January unless it is for over the odds money

Goid shout stubby i tend to agree with you on that. So maybe a hungry young striker from the prem or Champuonship who could do with hal a season with us to make his mark?

The problem is finding a young 'hungry' player though. We thought we had that with Green...

There are a lot of ego's in the champ & prem to contend with.

Unless we lose either Pitman or Mason I fail to see why we need to sign another striker. They are more than adequate cover for Hawkins, whose steady improvement this season can be said to have saved us a chunk of money.

Has he saved us a chunk of money?
Short term - yes
But is he prolific or even steady - not really for a top of the table side.
As for Pitman or Mason. Does Kenny want or rate Pitman?
Has Mason suggested in any game time that hes the answer?
So I think Kenny is looking. Our business to date doesnt look like wed allow our pants to be pulled down either.
Green is an interesting one. If he has really wants to get on then this is the most perfect place for him.
The hype is that he is way to good for this league and much better than what even clubs like Sunderland can field.
Prove it I say.
Still would make enquiries though

No, Hawkins is not prolific and probably never will be but he will score 10 or 12 season, and as long as he plays as well as he is currently in other aspects of his play then that is plenty. And the way he is playing is one of the reasons we are top.

It's far healthier to spread the goals across the whole front 4 (and others) like we are this season than having to rely on one man, like we did last season with Pitman.

DB, I think you've rather missed the point & it was expressed above. We've score the least amount of goals out of the top 4.
I've nothing against Hawkins, a battering ram who brings others in to play. But imo we can do slightly better & I think we will.
You make a good point ref Pitman, couldn't agree more on that one. Personally I think we need a CF that will enable us to bury teams when we're right on top in games. As we've seen @ home, if we don't take our chances we tend to get caught out a bit. The old scenario of 1 goal is never enough.

Having the least amount of goals in the top 4 doesn't worry me one little bit as long as we are scoring enough to be in the top two.

Besides it's not like we are a long way behind the others - Peterborough are the top scorers but our goal difference is 3 goals better than them. And we are 4th in the division for goals scored so its hardly a crisis.

Crisis..what crisis. [:D]
Only a complete loon would suggest its a crisis. [:D] No one is, but it'd be a massive shame if we got pipped for one of the top 2 places because of lack of goals scored. Or for not burying teams when we should.

When Wolves got promoted a few years back under Kenny, they were third in January but Kenny made a couple of signings and they went on a 9 game winning run after. I'd imagine he'll be looking at a couple of good quality championship quality signings this time round, but no major changes.

Bojan from Stoke would be great! Still young and needs a fresh start.

But if he is not getting game time, then any decrease in his wage would help Stoke and us.
You are being a bit negative and we have nothing to be negative about. Its all about getting us over the line.
Im sure Kenny is on the case and look forward to seeing whether our aspirations are matched by the club.

Bojan on loan for the run in would be a win win for both clubs.

Bojan, be realistic lads that's what f****d the club before.
Most sensible suggestion I have seen is Eaves, he would fit our system.
I honestly think Kenny knows Pitman cant do it in the championship[p so is planning for that

[rle] Stoke pay most of his wages. He gets to play regular football. If he plays well they get him back to play for them next season or he has advertised his talents so another club takes him off their hands. Win, win.
Come on bgay, keep up!
