The transfer market has definitely changed in recent seasons and its getting harder and harder to get a player you want in. Its not just us who are struggling look at Arsenal who are losing their best players because their contracts are running out but can't prise the players they want to replace them off others.
Clubs like Southampton have money to burn but can't get the players they want because other clubs arn't prepared to let their players go, they frankly can afford to keep them.

We have a very static market where every club is sniffing after the same players and the only way to get them is pay way over the odds and blow everyone else out of the water something you can only do so many times and its a massive risk if you do that on the wrong player.
The jump from any other league to being a success in the premier league is huge many can be banging goals for fun in other leagues but get into the premier league and they don't get a sniff.

The most sensible thing to do is to keep the players you have and the players you know for as long as possible on long contracts and target a few youngish players in vital positions who might stick around for a long time.
i'm not holding my breath though for this window, we all know we need players desperately but they cost so much i'm not at all sure we've got the will and wherewithall to pay what is required to outbid our rivals and get them in.

Apart from a keeper there is no great need for someone to actually get in the side. What we need is depth, players who can do a job both starting and coming off the bench. No need to spend 20 or 30 million on a single player, there should be plenty of players in the 5-10 million bracket available.

Our January recruitment in the past few years has had some successes Dann, Ledley, Luka, Sakho and we have unfortunately been in positions where we have needed them to be. This January is the same but I would back the scouting team to pull it a couple of good ones out of the bag.

Why scouting team is that?

Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman?

Middle Eastern and Asian billionaires are buying up clubs in Spain, France and elsewhere too. It means that there are tens more clubs across Europe able to bid up transfer fees. Villareal are by the far the most effective small town club in the transfer market and they do that by signing up young South American talent.

Tick Tock. 22nd January well 23rd really. I was clearly put in my place by two posters that had indicated that two solid player deals were all but done two weeks back. I only had to trawl through every rumour thread to find them.

We got a loanee in on the cheap (cover if you like).

Anymore rumour threads worth looking at to be disappointed by later?

I am on holiday with internet downtown thank feck.

Might not even see the two games. Will check the cable at the place though, Regretably, I saw the cup semi final disaster at Cardiff at the same place. Might be able to catch West Ham.

Occurs to be that the two signings we've made are cover for Dann & R L-C ( or possibly Punch). We've done nothing in terms of the 3-4 new players we needed before those injuries.

Was thinking that this morning . Yes we have brought 2 players in but they are unlikely to get much game time this season . January Window for us should be to try and get quality if possible that would make the difference of staying up or not .

The two young players signed could be very much part of the clubs future, and given a chance could prove to be astute signings. Like us all you have no idea if there is activity to resolve the key gaps in the squad. I am optimistic particularly that the goalkeeper issue will be resolved this week with Guita having passed a medical. Patience man.

If Guaita signs, wonder if we'll need a Spanish interpreter to add to the Swede and the Polak.
