Must be the quietest January transfer window in living memory,hardly any clubs doing significant business, appears this pandemic is having a massive impact on clubs finances too.

I'm glad we are not gambling our future on chasing the Premier league millions.

We have a lot to thank Steve Gibson for,just look at the basket case of a football club that is Derby County.

I'd like to see a few loans come in but not fussed on permanent at this stage unless they are free or going cheap and on low wage but also bring something to the squad... All three together make it a big ask.

I'm not really fussed. No crowds and reputedly losing nearly 2mil a month.

The odd loan would be nice just to supplement what we have. To he honest we've done very well with what we have and Howson / Fletcher and Hall coming back.

I very much doubt anyone who comes in will walk straight into the first team. I know he wants wingers but I'm happy enough with Watmore and Johnson out wide.

I doubt anyone is really going to sign players permanently. Then again you still see the likes of Man UTD linked with 50-100mil signings. I guess pandemics don't effect some clubs😂

Yes football is struggling, wonder who has taken advantage of the 8 million loan that was made available as part of the PL bail out proposal? Never heard anything else about that?

I cant see us bringing anyway in, unless its appearance based, given that the completion of this season may be delayed, if its completed at all.

Haven't seen Watmore out wide. Hes much better closer to goal

Im really worried if we lose Tav. This lad just gets better and better and one of a few that could play PL

I think the big lad from Bristol City (not sure about spelling😂) would he a decent addition. He's pretty skilful from I've seen.

He would also give us and option in the air. That said Fletcher is coming back although he doesn't really dominate for his size.

Alex Mowett would be a great addition. He's also available on a free in the summer. So maybe a cheeky low bid. He's always at the heart of everything Barnsley do when I've seen them on TV (also has a decent setplay and Captain).

Luke Young for Justin Hoyte, by I remember that too

How much did we sell Young for?
I'm sure Hoyte was £3m, didn't set the world on fire

We shouldn't be spending that sort of money on a midfielder in the current climate.
Especially when we're not short of midfielders in the starting 11.

Itl be interesting to see if we use and make weights in thus window like Britt and wing , I don’t think wel offer Britt a contract that’s shows we want him as our main striker.

Certainly not on his present salary, though I can't see him been offered that wage wherever he ends up TBH

Hopefully the club will pick up a couple of decent loans and keep all our regulars.

Tiredness and knocks cost us some points at Preston and Huddersfield. A bigger squad would probably have helped us.
