Wow...

Roy: We don't necessarily need reinforcements next month. We'll have Benteke back soon, Wickham recovering from a 2 year absence, Sørloth, Ayew. We believe we have players within our ranks who can score goals.

I don't blame Roy. This sounds like the newly promoted manager telling the press "I think it's only fair to give the players a chance" This is code for I asked the Chairman for 6/7 players and he told me to go whistle.

Anyway let's hope Roy and Steve are holding their cards close to their chest.

 


One more point

Take whatever Roy seize with pinch of salt he never comes out with what he really thinks.

He is the type thats old school not releasing dirty laundry to people outside same with you wont ever hear him say bad things about others.

He knows you gain nothing by doing what the likes of Moaninho do all that does is unsettle fans/players/club.

We need a few people to come in I wouldn't mind Defoe on a loan deal until end of the season and then maybe take the risk with few loans from EU we really need cover on wingers and other midfield options to many players are the same no competition.

If we stick with loans and put in clauses to buy those players as option in summer thats good but I would prefer we save the cash for summer rather then panic buys and no funds in summer.

Think it’s becoming clear from listening to Roy that we are not going to spend anything or very little this window. Receipe for disaster given our current predicament . Wonder how long Roy will stick around now.

I understand your sentiments but had we done that in January 2017 I believe there is every chance we would have been relegated.I suspect we wouldn't have enticed Allardyce to join adopting that policy.

The obvious answer is either nobody or nobody of any merit.

However, I would like to think that there is a possibility of an effort to wheel n deal in the window.

I'd rather Dwight Gayle than Defoe.

We will stay up, because this is a very poor Premiership year and 35 points may be enough to stay, so we will, but, only just.
Who might we buy in January? And why?
Rumours about Defoe concern me.
Not because he is not a talent, but then so was CB, who was great, but not for long. We must look forward. Why buy another yesterday man again?
I am a Roy supporter but the summer input was hopeless, sorry
I want to see evidence of a player strategy which acknowledges, tests and challenges the youth talent I hear we have.
When was one of these youngsters given a chance to shine in a Premiership match...time to be bold?

I suspect it more likely to SP input that you need to be concerned about!

Moses, Lolley and Batshuahi on loan. I am either a fantasist, optimist or both! The brilliant win yesterday could either persuade SP to think that no outlay is necessary, or to build a squad with more depth. Let’s see

I don't think he'd want to come. He's on his way back up to the Premier League and to being a second time Championship top scorer. With West Brom in the top league, he'll be getting more chances than he got at Newcastle last year (where he was pretty decent, much better than what the Palace strikers have done).

He is on loan from the Toon for a season and with them in the same predicament as us there is no way they will allow him to come here.

Optimist, without a doubt.
