Nice month long break to come, think it's a decent time to assess the squad and see what we think we need and who we'd all like!

Zack Steffen
Liam Roberts

Tommy Smith
Anfernee Dijksteel

Dael Fry
Darragh Leinhan
Matt Clarke

Ryan Giles
Marc Bola

Jenny Howson
Hayden Hackney
Paddy Mcnair

Isiah Jones

Riley Mcgree
Matt Crooks

Chuba Akpom
Marcus Forss
Matthew Hoppe
Duncan Watmore

To me I think we need some center half cover, a replacement for Howson (Younger), Right Wing cover, out and out left winger and possibly a striker

What does everyone else think?

Don’t think we need centre back cover really if we’re playing four at the back. I’d agree about midfield. Up front I’d stick with what we have

It suddenly feels like we need less than we did!

Definitely a centre mid. Maybe a left mid and a striker if the right players become available, but no buys for the sake of it.

Not too much tbh stick with what we have and improve the players hopefully Hoppe, Willis etc and keep the team spirit we rarely improve the team in January normally seem to make it worse lol

We still need a midfielder, and with the change in formation I would say that we need a right winger and left winger.

You've said cover for Jones but I personally think Jones should be the cover and we bring someone else in who is consistent. Jones will always be inconsistent, he just doesn't have the concentration, look at the two times it went under his foot today, just amateurish. That said, when he's on it he's very good. And he's been a part of a good few matches so credit where it's due.

Barring Roberts and Hackney, every player on that list have been slagged off on this site before Michael Carrick arrived, yes they all haven’t all played under Carrick, but when they do, hopefully they will show they are worthy of the shirt.

Who do we need in January.................🤔it doesn't seem that long ago since we completely as a collective forum that we got in a bit of a tizz over the the summer signings so I'm just going to enjoy the next few weeks and after this post not bother until January but in the meantime can I say a heart felt FO to any posts on January signings.

To challenge the top 2 / 4 , we need to add quality to improve the group.

MC will want better options, huge chance to make his mark this window.
Promotion is there to be had , we are playing catch up , but other teams will have us as a contender .
Huge window , I hope we back him .

Way too much. Maybe over 2 or 3 windows but we don’t need a centre back or a left back in January.
