We've got a couple of big hitter currently on the injury table.. I'm guessing that were looking for them both coming back into the fold after the international break..

26 DF Darragh Lenihan
29 FW Chuba Akpom

Straight into the first team I would have thought.

Then we have players from the academy that hall all been given squad numbers and not sent out on loan. Joe Gibson was in an around the first team last season.. but that doesn't mean that we haven't got the next Stewart Downing, Lee Cattermole, James Morrison, David Wheater, Dyed Spence etc... waiting in the shadows, ready to jump at their chance..

30 MF Hayden Hackney
31 FW Sonny Finch
32 DF Bryant Bilongo
33 MF Joe Gibson
34 DF Daniel Dodds
36 FW Calum Kavanagh
37 MF Kamil Conteh
38 DF Jack Hannah
39 MF Jeremy Sivi
40 MF Isiah Cornet

Looking as far forward as January 1st. then we also have players on loan that might see a return into the squad after a bit of a vinegar soak and a spell in the oven..

10 MF Martin Payero - the Argentinian league runs to October 2022, with the door left open and no reinforcements brought in.. might he fancy round two at the Boro?
22 DF Darnell Fisher - the freak injury has ruled him out for such a long time.. but players do come back even if it's in a slightly adjusted role?
35 MF Isaac Fletcher - sent out to develop, available for recall.. can Scunthorpe do for Issac Fletcher what QOTS did for Isaiah Jones?

With the disappointment of the window closing and missing out, could it be our new scout hunts out a few freebies short term? a few hidden gems?
When was the last time we rolled the dice on a Bart Ogbeche, a Lee Dong-gook.. what ever happened to the Harry Redknapp type signings.. when did we last sign a proper mad one. It seems we are forever chasing the championship pack and coming up short. where is the wild card entry? I liked us giving Toyosi Olusanya a shot at the big time. Faris Haroun, Yanic Wildschut, Tarmo Kink, Merouane Zemmama.. you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette! If we need two, bring four in!

It would not surprise me if we signed another squad player (free agent) before December. We have the cash and free space in the squad. (Teams are allowed 25 senior players).

TWENTY ONE senior players in the squad at the moment.. room for another FOUR!!! 7, 10, 11 & 12

It's pretty comical that even Wilder is saying 'it will be great to get Akpom back'.

I mean he didn't even invite him on the pre season trip😂
Imagine if Wilder had said we’re looking to bring in a couple of development strikers.. Roberts, Smith, Lenihan, Clarke, Luongo and a few loan signings Mowett and three others

It’ll take the sale of a few of our players Stojanovic, Spence, Hall, Wood, Tavernier plus we need to send Payero out on loan.

Bamba, Peltier, Taylor, Ikpeazu, Olusanya..
they can all go Coulson, Coburn, Lumley, Fletcher, send them out on loan.

How many would be thinking top six?

Hand on heart can you see the improvement to the squad?

Steffen - Lumley/Brynn/Hemming
Roberts - Stojanovic

Smith - Spence/Peltier
Lenihan - Hall/Bamba
Clarke - Wood
Giles - Taylor/Coulson

Luongo - Tavernier
Mowett - Payero

Forss - Ikpeazu
Hoppe - Olusanya/Ameobi
Muniz - Sporar/Balogun/Connolly/Coburn

Doesn't strike me as a Wilder team .What is Missing ?
Big commanding CH
High energy CM who runs the show
2 prolific PROVEN strikers to compliment Muniz
4 requirements for January for me.
The spine is weak, that is what we need IMO.

With the exception of Tav, and the fact Spence didn't play for us last season... Every position in that list has been improved.

Steffen - 6 appearances, 9 conceded, 1 clean sheet
Lumley - 9 appearances, 14 conceded, 3 clean sheets

Roberts - 4 appearances, 6 conceded, 1 clean sheet
Stojanovic - fair enough, we sold him and brought in a new face

Smith - 3 appearances
Peltier - 5 appearances + £12m we got from Fry

Lenihan - 7 appearances
Hall - 6 appearances.. but would take some player to replace what we had with Sol Bamba last season

Clarke - 5 appearances £2.34m hasn't convinced me yet
Wood - 9 appearances - doing well for Swansea

Giles - 10 appearances 3 assists
Taylor/Coulson - Neil Taylor was solid for us last season, but Giles is an upgrade

Luongo - no appearances yet, but he's a decent player
Tavernier - very much missed

Mowett - 9 appearances so far
Payero - 13 appearances last season

Forss - based on his limited game time it does work out to 1 in 3
Ikpeazu - didn't fit the system, cost £3.23m to replace

Hoppe - 21 minutes so far £2.7m to replace two free transfers
Olusanya/Ameobi - fair enough,

Muniz - 2 goals in 5 if he keeps that up over 43 games he should equal the goal tally of our 4 last season
Sporar/Balogun/Connolly/Coburn - 17 goals

The promise of Jacob Greaves
The idea of Hamza Choudhury
The dream of Jørgen Strand Larsen

missing out late in the window, injuries to Lenihan and Akpom.. McNair over Dijksteel and early question marks over Clarke.. bed have been wet
