Don't disagree at all, but when I look at our squad as a whole, a back up winger would be pretty low down my list of priorities, as much as it would be nice.

We can make do, but our options currently are poor. I think full backs and central midfield more the priorities for us.

Agree with both the last two posts (AS/EDN).

I guess one factor in all of this is of course the more looming than ever threat of a no-Wilf Palace, whether that be via decline or departure. Thatís a special kind of anxiety on top of my already prominent Palace related worry.

Personally, Iíd like to see someone brought in who everyone else being fit would be competing for a starting place at the very least and capable of filling the void post Wilf. Iíd then like to see perhaps JRS/Malcolm etc being brought on occasionally if not both.

Given three wishes however, Iíd probably go Central midfielder to compliment Doucoure (massive fan of his), a RB, then perhaps a Centre forward or winger if funds and the market allows.

My hope is that we donít bring in more stocking fillers (seasonal analogy there) to the squad. ASCPFC said something about championship level players which I feel is harsh and IMHO I would refer to them more as Ďsquad playersí. I donít want Benteke/Sakho-esque marquee signings who end up just draining funds but a few players to boost and improve the team would be nice as opposed to just making up numbers. Itís probably fair to say there was a need for that at one point however nightmares of Peter Taylor style of a deadwood squad come haunting!

Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Yes indeed mate. The Wilf situation pops up here. I would be trying Ebiowei or Rak-Sakyi now rather than later - IF we're not buying a replacement. Particularly if he goes next month.

Yeah itís not an outlandish idea at all.

I think itís fair to say that if we were safe by a fair distance, out of cups and not playing for much beyond a few positions Iíd be disappointed not to see either feature.

As I really canít be bothered with the cup today, watching the Clowns in league 1 on Sky. Rak-Sakyi has so much more talent than anyone else on the pitch itís a joke.

He'd be at home in our team. He just put a lovely ball into the 6 yard box and nobody was there to get a touch

Charlton lost.

JRS is easy to knock off the ball the talent is there he needs to beef up.

Miles Leaburn (young striker son of Carl) came on for them, on their forum they have been worried that we will be nicking him. I have not seen us linked to Leaburn anywhere except the Charlton forum from what I saw today he is young and very raw I can't see that we would be interested.

As for the quality of football, well Bolton are promotion contenders but both sides it was kick and rush.

Letís be honest, if he was going to make it with us, he wouldnít be on loan at Charlton, as weíve seen over the years, if they are good enough theyíre straight into first team reckoning without going on loan, Wilf, Wan Bissaka and Mitchell for example. Once they start going out on loan, itís the start of a few loan spells before they finally leave

What you say is largely true. Sending youngsters out on loan is usually the door to the departure lounge. However, we can only hope that occasionally there may be an exception to this.

Thing is itís 18 months now since Rak Sakyi came on against Chelsea at the start of last season and heís 20 now, obviously still young, but sadly I think his only chance with us is if we go down

I did not witness the Charlton game yesterday but I understand that Mark Bright was going to the match.

From all accounts Rak-Sakyi is performing with some aplomb and is popular with the Charlton supporters.
