The options are diminishing by the day. Personally I think the January window should be scrapped unless it's an absolute emergency. Dealings should be concluded during the summer and you go with what you have for that season.

So what’s the latest rumours?

I’m done googling

We are getting our business done early and have planned according to Angus Spinny :lol:

Bowen rumour . . Quickly shot down by other journalists.

Adams- No official confirmation from PH or Graham but thats pretty much dead.

We like Andre Grey but Nigel Pearson today said he wont be going anywhere.

Billy Sharp seems to not be a target (thankfully).

Dwight Gayle is injured and to expensive (thankfully)

Random Spanish twitter account linked us with Mariano Diaz but he seems to be going to Portugal.

Ian Poveda was meant to be at Thorp Arch today but no confirmation.

Basically every time we are linked to anyone its shot down fairly fast.

Thats about it :lol:

Three players I'd like to see brought is a decent centre back called Jansson who plays down at Brentford. There's a guy called Roofe doing a decent job for Anderlecht and a young dynamic midfielder playing for Sampdoria, by the name of Viera.

I guess it wouldn't be all so desperate, if we just stopped selling our gems.

As I always say Overman, LUFC should build on what they have & not get rid of their best players.

Makes no sense whatsoever imo!

Clubs don't have to pay salaries to new signings until the end of February, not the same for us fans whereas we have to pay for our season-tickets with months to go during the current season

OMG that expense is due soon :(

There speaks an honest man who does not want to achieve success by breaking the rules.
Not a Machiavelli who wants success by any means possible. And therein lie the rub, since I
suspect that after so many years in the wilderness fans want to use desperate measures to get
back the "promised land," and when their dreams remain unfulfilled, frustration is the end
result.

We should remind ourselves that of all the people who escaped the bondage of Egypt
(the Championship) only two of them (Joshua and Caleb) entered the promised land,
and that was because they were just and upright, the rest perished having to suffer the
wilderness for 40 years.
Yes but their spies got away with it!

i think its more to do with clubs reluctant to let certain players go until a better suitable replacement is found .

We now have another week to get the best player we can?

Nobody coming in for QPR is very disappointing and s**t from the club (we do love making our squad progressively weaker).

But now we have 10 days after tomorrow till Millwall.

So may as well keep trying to get the best most suitable player we can.

No rush now, chase this special player whoever it may be until the 28th, if he hasnt signed by then move on imo and get SOMEBODY.

We seem no further forward after 17 days so i dont find 2 weeks comforting tbh.

Where the hell is Poveda?

I think leave 3 days to get someone in.

But chase Che Adams or any unlikely targets for the next 11, maybe we can get a surprise.

Dont allow anofher Dan James, last minute nail biter to occur again though :cry:
