    Scott Sinclair to Preston maybe and Rhian Brewster to Swansea, meanwhile we're getting turned down by Billy Sharp. Gunna be a long window :(

    Sinclair has played twice for a team in a pub league this season, I wouldn't get upset about that one.

    Saw on Reddit that basically the only Manager who can actually make Sinclair any good is Brendan Rodgers. So unless things go downhill at Leicester very quickly you won't have to worry about missing out on him.

    The Cavaleiro thing has made me slightly more interested in this window, just because it's opened up a loan spot for us. Was expecting us to sign two players from abroad on a perm that I've barely heard of (starting Right-Back and cover Left-Back) for relatively cheap fees going into the window. Said earlier, ideal signing would be someone like James Justin because he can do both sides. But knowing Tony Khan we'll waste the spot on another winger.

    Phil Jones is such an interesting spectacle of a player.

    Should also say this is filling me with hope for the FA Cup game we've got against them.

    We didn't play too bad apparently.

    Adebayo missed another penalty :joy:

    Yeh from what I saw you were pretty decent
    We have pretty good depth so even with a lot of changes still meant guys like Mac, Evans and Marquis coming in, good test for your boys

    Salford have racked up 2.5m of debt so far this season in return for 12th in league 2, what a shambles that club is

    Could be, only thing that might scupper it is that Grabban is our main striker, although it would be nice to take him off and give a striker that has a bit of threat about him a go.

    Apparently Gayle would cost a million in wages between now and May. WTF.

    Just hope it doesn’t mean a departure. Don’t know a whole lot about him to be fair

    Doesn't help them not even getting 2,000 home fans per game yet paying Rooney 6k a week, Towell is probably on a decent wage and theres probably others on decent money as well.

    Really good away day though, absolutely nothing around the ground though :joy:

    Looks like Marcus Browne coming in on loan - getting even stronger

    Was decent enough last season but don’t think he’s had much of a look in? @ Boro fans x 2

    recalled Doyle from Swindon. Their fans dont seem to be taking it too well :D They seem to think we will let him rejoin them on loan again before Friday. We would be mad to let him rejoin a promotion rival on loan after he scored 23 in 22 for them.

    Will be very surprised if he manages to score more than 5 for us for the rest of the season. We seem to favour defense over attack and anti football tactics. How the hell we are 4th in this league is beyond me. League 2 is shocking.

    At least we won't be the first televised 9-0 of the season.

    How’s Gary Madine these days?
    Too good to drop to league 1?
    Pitman going out the door for us so a big wage ST hole looks likely to open up just as he gets released

    @iHilarious Heard how much Atkinson was signed for? We had a bid accepted, but your lot came in with a higher bid which Eastleigh told us to match, so we told them to do one.

    Started with a bang at Luton then flattered to deceive and the stupid red card was the nail in the coffin I think.. there is 100% a player in there so hopefully you lot can bring it out for us.

    Odd flash were hes looked alright as an impact sub but generally hes been absolutely dreadful every time hes started hes been awful. When he got subbed on against swansea he got booked for diving after a min then got a straight red about 10 mins later for the most blatant red ever. Hes young so hopefully calms down and improves but after Swansea im glad hes going it seemed he was determined he was going off so went all in to make it a brutal red card challenge a 3 game ban was generous.

    Kyle Lafferty signing for Sunderland , Liam Boyce maybe too, imo Lafferty is finished.
    Jordan Jones wanted by Stoke but don't think Rangers want to sell.

    Been announced as the 29th of January and then the 22nd of January all in the space of about 2 hours. Good thing most (if not all) of the fans going to the game won't need to book trains in advance.

    Could only see it being a Loan + Option if we did sign him, so it would be pretty low risk for us.

    Think if we did sign him we'd switch to a 3 as well with him as the LCB, and that would probably suit all of our defenders including Bryan and Christie so I'd take the chance on him.
