Prior to the end of the transfer window ??

Have it on good authority that Diego poyet is going out on loan to mk Dons today, can we tap into any of the London clubs for some signings?

Left midfielder - Stephen McLaughlin
2 x Striker - Mcleod, Jackson or Gray + Loanee
Centre Half - Adam Thompson
Versatile Defensive cover - Loanee

If we can afford him, Owen Garvan also please.

Doubt it, one more would take us to 4, cant see us carrying 5 strikers.

Rest seems about right.

We desperately need a pacey striker and a pacey CB. If we could snare those and bring McLaughlin in too I'd be delighted with that (plus obviously a GK if Bentley is sold before the end of the August window).

I really don't see the necessity to bring a RB in at this stage, he'll only play if White is out and if that's the case we can always hit the loan market.

It's plain to see we need at least 1 striker / target man added to squad. No easy task as most clubs are in the same situ. Think the best bet at mo if use the loan market and hopefully get a gem like Britt Assombalounga

I think the team squad is OK defense + midfield for now ok, it's the fwds lineup that's possibly needs improving, i would personally get a big lump / target up there (a bit like Barry Coorr) who can put it about a bit

Errhhh. According to you there is a rule that we are not allowed 5 central defenders either ........... :facepalm:

We have 5 do we?

There isn't a rule but it's common sense. We have a budget.

Have 5 of either and you would end up with 2 not even making the match day squad. That would keep them motivated.

Order of importance.
1. Centreback.
2. Striker.
3. Winger.
4. Fullback (cover).

If we're able to get Mclaughlin and Garvan then imho we'll need to ship out a couple of midfielders as we possibly be able to them all happy and to balance the books.
