Some rumours I've heard. No idea how solid or not they are. Just passing them on.

Che out to Arsenal, Newcastle, Spurs and WBA. If the fee's OK let him go

Baxter to Huddersfield. Not a huge loss with Dom C-L back?

Scougall on loan to Crewe. he'd get 1st team games - get it sorted

Harris to Wigan.  Stupid unless the fee's good.

Kyle MacFasdean in  I think last year maybe, but now I wouldn't bother as he seems to have found his level

Sam Morsey in  quality - we keep being linked with this lad but the new regime might want to keep him

He's a holding midfielder with real box-to-box capability mate

Dan Burn firmly back on the radar as a primary target this window. Loans and permanent deals discussed, we value him in the £900k area apparently. If Fulham want significantly more we could get him on loan and buy him in Summer IF we'll be playing at a higher level next season.

I'd like that as a signing but not convinced it's a priority at the moment.

After shepherding the Peterborough players through to shoot and score on Satdi I reckon we could do with some strengthening!

Dan Burn would be a good signing in MHO...

Even when we kept that series of clean sheets, it needed some poor finishing from our opponents, some good saves from Long and a pinch of luck.  Wonder what the "near misses against" tally was during that period...

I also think Burn would give us something up front for our corners due to his excessive height.

I'm not saying Burn wouldn't be a good signing for us......however............

Let's say 'hypothetically' we can only bring 2 players in during the transfer window and 'hypothetically' that also depends on some players going out..........

............would a CB be one of your two priorities?

We need improvements in most departments Vamps, and I believe he would improve us at the back for sure. A striker and a truly creative CMF would be my preference though.

Nail on the head as far as I'm concerned...........I'd even put a keeper above a CB at the moment (depending on who goes in the TW).

I totally, wholeheartedly disagree.  We only need to make 4 changes to have a half decent team....

1. Goalkeeper
2. Defence
3. Midfield and
4. Attack

Bum bum...

If it was restricted to two players (yeah, in our dreams!) then I'd say a CB and a CAM.  We score enough goals even if certain individuals don't.  Our problem is we let too many in. 

A CB would tighten us up at the back (we need an old head preferably).

A CAM would take the pressure of the back four and allow Basham to do the holding role.  It would also focus our opponents in their half instead of ours.

We do need to switch the strategy somewhat. The teams who get out of this division are the ones who dominate the play and play on the front foot in the opposition half. For several years now we've placed the priority on trying to avoid losing instead of ensuring we win. I know it sounds daft but if Morgan had been in charge we'd have seen far more attacking football, with ONE defensive holding CMF and more emphasis on going forward. Managers recently have been too afraid to fail to really go out and boss the division.
