If Granty stays, he'll probably go in Jan. I am almost resigned to him leaving...

We NEED a top quality striker, whether that's a loan or short term contract I couldn't care less. Get one in Luggy.

Oh yeah and Barker till May please.

In a world of my own.
Not sure why everyone thinks Granty is off. I think he is a good player but there is not a lot of money out there and I cant see us etting him go like the wave of players before him. Personally hope Sturrock has a striker up his sleeve but I doubt it.

Granty has stuck with us when others left I think he will stay, we do need a goal poacher an old fashoined centre forward but they are rare and expensive.

Unlike usual deadline days, I'm not fussed if we sign anyone or not, we signed around 20 a few weeks back!

If we could get a striker, I wouldnt say no, but I feel we are beginning to show we have the fire power to win games and that'll do for me.

Think that may well depend on how we are doing. I take him at his word when he says that he is just enjoying playing regular football. If he makes the jump to the Championship, he risks spending much of his time warming the bench whilst a move to League One could be where we are next season. If, in January we are on an upward spiral, he could just hang around with us, for the ride.

I wouldn't be so sure about Barker extending his spell. He's got to be one a fair wedge at Plymouth and even if we only cover 50% of his wages that's got to be way over our wage budget, surely?

I dont think we NEED a 'top quality forward'. It would be nice but it's not essential if you're going to be successful. I think we have 4 decent forwards for this level who are all capable of getting five each and there's the 20 goals.

Love Granty to stay and Barker's loan to be extended for the season.
