Which comments are we expecting this evening?

I’ll start us off with

”we felt there wasn’t value for money”

”not for the want of trying”

“We felt we had enough in that position”

I will go with the middle one and I strongly suspect he is right, supplemented by 'but we are delighted with the extra quality we been able to bring in'.

if we don't get striker in he needs to come out and explain to the fans why after the "proven 9" comments...

NKeitah wasn't a proven 9 either.

Perhaps we're getting Wilbs back.

"It is a priority. 

I would like to think we might have one in for Sunday v Leeds, but definitely before the 8th we have to have a nine in, it is absolutely key.

"We need a proven nine because we need more goals in the team."

Key here is proven

 

So why the months of chasing EN.....Who is anything but proven. Unless they have something else up their sleeve.

All these topics are going to look stupid if we sign someone. 

Love that the guy has worked miracles and now he is getting slated. Have a word with yourselves. 

It frustrating, yes, but we've just been royaly bent over by Arsenal.

This squad will not get in the top half I am afraid. Think we'll end up about 15th /16th. Any early season optimism severely reduced as far as I am concerned.

the QPR cup game  will be interesting as presumably we will play some of our newcomers. Let's see who is up to speed.

lets hope Kalas keeps fit as we are really dependent on him now. Moore has to prove he is at this level. Did ok on Saturday but time will tell. I have my doubts.i think he needs another season on loan to mature.

please stop criticising Fammy. He has a hopeless task being so isolated. Not getting a number 9 to support him is so disappointing.

pretty peed off generally with the overall situation. Thought this was a year we could really progress but......... roll on January ! 

Start looking for a number 9 now, Ashton.

I dispute we have a better first team. Bigger squad but not convinced the team we put on the park is better.

Webster is SUCH a big miss. And in a crucial position on the pitch.

We'll see at the end of the season. Sincerely hope you are right as I really want to see us do well but am just being honest as to how I see it.

Better goalkeepers

better full back

same central defence

better midfielders

better attacking midfielders

same strikers

The only person happy with this transfer window will be Lansdown as there's plenty of money in the bank for him....

Yeah because that money goes straight into his bank account doesn’t it?

He'll big up all the other signings and make little of the failure to sign a striker. May mention that we looked at the market but it was difficult.  The hunt for a proven 9 will go on.

6 transfer windows and 63 players signed in LJ & MA reign and not 1 proven striker...... Baffling.

Delusion levels on here are almost matching that of those north of the river. Embarrassing.

Why not try and improve in all areas including recruitment? One big objective was to get a proven No9 and he failed.

Key there is LJ and MA. Why only Ashton is getting pelters is beyond me.

Recruitment from identification scouting bids and signing is a team matter at City they say so themselves.

Everyone involved is cupable for the stats stated above.

Fact is we do have strikers we just don't play enough of them at the same time or play the wrong one for the apparrent style the coachis looking for.

Does everyone think NKeita would have played up front on his own ? You never know this may prove a blessing as England's best young coach may have to stop being so ******* egotistical and play a team and system that suits what he has.
