A lot of things still being looked at in the window,focused on what we want and supporting the manager, fingers crossed #fightlikelions


Hopefully all these new players can gel quickly.

In a transfer window known for clubs paying over the odds it seems like we've completed so very astute business. Also for the first time in a long time it looks like we have a manager who recognises where the weaknesses are and knows what it takes to build a team.

Let's make it a Barnsley triple and sign Marley Watkins as well - tricky winger. Just handed in a transfer request.

He stayed down near BMH last night, partly completed his medical. That was done first thing this morning and then he was straight out training. Expect more action from us in the market and a few to go out mate. BMH is a hive of activity today.

I know! They really loved Houri - loads of them on the AVFC Official twitter feed saying "Look after him" and similar. So hoping he finds a real home with us, as I do all of the newbies.

I don't know much of Bree, but with the other players we have signed this window we have players who not only are they some of the best in the championship but also they look like they could compete in the top flight. I still think the playoffs are a mountain to climb because of our last few results but we have the individuals now that, on paper, are truly of the very best in the league. Will they hit the ground running and put together the type of winning run that'll be required just to get us back amongst it? With 19 games left I don't think we can afford much more than two losses, 73pts is the average required to make playoffs over the last ten seasons. 40pts more gets us to 76 at an average of 2.1pts per game. I think it'll be more than 73 this season so we have to aim at an average of around 2.3-2.4 to be sure. That'll take a return of points better than anyone has produced in this championship season, Brighton currently averaging 2.2-2.3

Brighton are riding their luck but there's no reason it can't last, Newcastle have the squad to keep going but the other teams are all capable of having a damaging wobble especially if we go on a winning streak & put the pressure on. The questions for me are how quickly the midfield gels, the return of Kodja & the Rudy-&-Ross-sized hole in the squad.

I at least want to see us give the play offs a go and I think we have a very slim chance but still a chance?

Tony has again done everything he can to get the manager the tools he needs and there seems to be a different mentality over transfers which hopefully is coming from Round's work behind the scenes?

I think Hourihane will be the best signing this January?

Definitely looks like we're still doing something regarding recruits if Xia's tweet of 3 mins ago is anything to go by......

To be honest I couldn't be happier, even if we didn't get anybody else in, as the midfield problem has been fully addressed. At long last we have attacking midfield options and they all look very impressive!
Another forward would be the icing on the cake for me (perhaps a CH as cover on loan as well)?
Can we make the playoffs, it will be extremely difficult but at least we are giving it a good go.

I'd very much like to think the RB problem is sorted as well. A full midfield replaced as well, as you say. Top stuff. I still think either Rhodes or Akpom might be in claret and blue come Feb.

There's a youngster called Omar Bogle at Grimsby who is banging them in left right and centre. Apparantely, you can't move for scouts whenever he is playing with some big names interested. Two footed, plays hold up, back to goal and strong/fast. I know that sometimes they are one season wonders but, if you do latch onto the next Benteke you can't really lose.Could replace RHM, if he won't sign?
