    Default January transfer window

    December is coming up fast and we'll soon be turning our attentions to transfer speculations for the winter window.

    We're again being linked (tentatively) with Lawrence Shankland. Should the rumours surface again about Lamouchi's desire to sign Grabban, Shankland may well be a target.

    Still need Sammy Cosgrove to play upfront with Lyle, McKenna's old team mate from Aberdeen too

    A lot need to be fucked off before any more come in.

    Didn't I see that Shankland chap come on for Scotland in this series of matches. If it was him, he wasn't very good, so it's a no from me.

    Oh, and dear Greg. After playing 500 league matches, if he's been careful with his pennies, he can afford to go out to play for the fun of it if he's that desperate for some action. Our local TV station , last night, had a segment (helpfully advertising the chap's availability) about a player previously with Ipswich Town who is also unable to find a club and keeps himself fit and ready. I guess the financial pinch of this pandemic is having far-reaching effects.

    Mental to think the window opens again soon.

    I've pretty much written this season off bar a miracle, so hopefully the next month or so gives Hughton a real idea of what these players are/aren't about, and we can pick up some good players to build on for next season.

    Don't think it'll be a disaster if we don't sign many or even any, but do also think it's a good opportunity for Hughton to get key players in who he'll see as stalwarts for next year (barring said miracle), and blood them so we've a real team in the making.

    Probably the biggest talking point will be Grabban's potential exit.

    If we’re talking about Scottish players I thought Declan Gallagher looked an outstanding defender when he played.

    if Greg is still in good shape there's no reason why he can't do a job, he's a good option as he can cover several positions.

    I was surprised to see yesterday's result. As long as I watched (until the 60th-70th minute or so), you were probably the better team (despite their three woodworks), and there was visible and unquestionable progress in comparison to previous matches. C'est la vie.

    I am also surprised that some you want another flurry of transfers in the January window, in order to avoid relegation. You cannot at the same time lament constant changes in the team and ask for more changes. At some point the club (especially the board but also fans) needs to escape the vicious circle of short-termism and trust football process. If Hughton is the man to be in charge of that process, give him and the players time, even at the cost of a season of mid-table mediocrity (this is a crazy season anyway). A small tweak is always necessary in January, but changing, once again, the whole team in hope of immediate success makes no football sense.

    Agree with the principle, but these aren't his players and you only have to look at the difference in calibre between Knockers & Da Costa to see what a proven, Champ promotion manager can bring to the club compared to what he's been given to work with by the frauds who have recruited at the club for the past several windows.

    Hughton needs to be allowed to add as many players as he sees fit to make a promotion team for next year. The more we can add in Jan, the longer he has to shape them into a team.

    I doubt there will be many changes in January. Hughton already has a good squad at his disposal. Grosicki will add something, but unless a key player leaves - Grabban, Worrall etc - I can’t see any significant change.

    I agree. I don't want to see too many players coming in during the January Window. It's not the best time to recruit players. You tend to end up with players that others don't want. And I am not a big Advocate of taking trouble off someone else's hands. So best wait until Summer for the Recruitment of players.

    There does though need to be a big "Cull " of players in this squad in January in readiness for a Summer Recruitment.

    I think we will have a quiet one and only sign 8 players, 5 permanently 3 loans.

    How do you know Mighten isn't injured?

    He isn't playing for the 23s either, which if he was just out of the manager's plans, you would say he would be.

    And realistically, as he's a winger, we now have Lolley, Knockaert and Ameobi ahead of him, none of whom you would say Mighten was ahead of, as well as Freeman who can play there.

    He's literally 4th choice winger. I would like to see him get more game time too, but the reality of the situation is that we are in a weird position as we need to get a run of wins together which needs playing our best players as opposed to hoping a kid we all want to have it does.

    Anything below 12th place and we are plummeting towards relegation. Hence the panic regarding transfers.

    Really, truly not at you but that is probably the funniest and most futile statement I have read on here all year!

    And sadly I agree with every word!

    I could see us getting the odd player or two, but for me it's about outgoings.
    If you are only playing 2-3 games or less for us a season, you don't need to be here.

    Given our season form so far and COVID, I don't really too much about a promotion challenge if I'm honest. If you aren't in the stadium to watch your club, what's the point?

    Cut, cut, cut!

    Do not spend a penny. Promotion is a write off and if they need more players to escape relegation then they want fucking by Adebola.

    What a waste of a season, again!
