KM in his BluesTV interview was very vague about exactly when new players would be brought in :-"at the right time" was what he limited himself too.So not before January then. :Winking:

Firstly I think there is now a learning to set no expectations as they will be leapt upon and then used to batter them around the head at the first opportunity. Better a nice surprise than a manufactured disappointment.

On Brunt the initial loan was till January..

The fact he is highlighting Brunt's versatility may be a hint that 352 is not going to be the preferred formation (or indeed another formation that necessarily accommodates a number 10 role)

Yes - it was 'How Soon Is Now?'. But, on behalf of the Apostrophe Action Association, I'd like to point out (respectfully) that there is no need for an apostrophe when referring to the former group, The Smiths.
What about your favourite The Smiths’ songs?

I thought somewhere there was a post from a southend employee, saying that some of us would look silly this week, in regards to the lack of signings.. tick tock tick tock
That's not what he said......he said the guy would look silly after the suggestion recruitment wasn't being dealt with

look silly this week, wasn't it?? or am I wrong
Does it matter? Still came in a few days later- took a bit longer than anticipated to sort out some niceties. This is why we should be told nothing until after it’s done. That said being told you would look silly is rather setting themselves up to be shot at if it doesn’t happen :-)
