How many players do we need?

At least three quality championship players which we should have brought in the summer. 

From mid April it was certain that we was going to a championship club and our failure to recruit in the close season is up with any mismanagerment we have seen in this club history.

Robinson is on a season's loan, unless he wants to go back why would you think he'd leave?

No chance of a game at Villa..

so no chance of a game this season!!

The fact that he's here for a season long loan and the likelihood of never starting a game is just the type we surly don't want?

What I mean is any player that is happy to be a footballer and never play is stealing a living.

Bennett extension should be about 5th on the list, we have Wagstaff, Burns & Little who can all play that position, it's not like he's got loads of assists or scored so one of them will slot in there easily. 

First priority HAS to be a centre midfielder, ridiculous that we only have two, Smith and Pack.  I'd love someone in the mound of Diagouraga from Brentford. 

Second then needs to be a striker, preferably someone who's experienced & could play the Wilbs role, only a little more mobile come the 60th minute! (I've just had a worrying thought that we'll end up with Grant Holt) 

Third id say should be a left back, would allow us to change the formation and play with 4 at the back, Moxey has been linked, I wouldn't mind him or even Jonathan Parr from Ipswich, he's not played much this season (possibly because of injury) but he's out of contract in the summer.

A 3rd, defensively able, centre mid. Dack and/or Kasim would be 2 I'd like.  A striker that can play with Kodjia and is able to do the hard stuff to help him. Like the idea of Lafferty. Maybe another centre back because Moore is presumably going back  

Then in the summer id be looking for another keeper (maybe Bentley) and another striker.

Who says that he's happy?

He may be trying his best, playing for the U21s but we simply don't think that he is good enough.

Villa didn't make us borrow him, so why would they want him back?

Pretty certain he is going back Graham.

he would have gone back sooner had he been eligible to play for villa U21s

for some reason, due to his loans in this calendar year, he cant play for Villa u21s until Jan 1st

watched him last week for our u21, have to say that mentally i think he is already back there mate.

Fair enough.

Sad it didn't work out, both for him and for us..

@djb6162 What's the deal with Robinson if you can elaborate? Unfit? Wrong attitude? Not good enough?

He's definately fit, and i have no evidence to suggest he has the wrong attitude.

Calum's problem is that in the "playing in the hole role"  his favoured position,we have two players ahead of him in SC opinion LF and BR.

out wide and left, his second favoured position we have two players ahead of him DW and JB, although i have to say that watching him play, no way is Calum a LWB. Thats not what he was hoping for when he came on loan

as for playing wide right, well arguably we now have 3 players whom SC sees as ahead of him

ML EB and WB.

i genuinely think that SC thought he would be a stronger option than WB when he took him, but subsequntky he signed EB and Wes has done better both in the early season game time and in the u21s than Callum

he simply couldnt put Callum ahead of wes in the squad on performances and merit.

so Callum has been left high and dry.

if we adopted a 4-4-2 i think Callum would have seem more action,as would wes of course, but we have had one dabble with that system and we know what happened.

it was ironic for me that the day we chose to play that way we left 3 genuine wide players out of the squad completely

CR, WB and SW.

we played it with 5 central defenders on the pitch, and now i guess having failed we will abandon it and Callum

Thanks for that insight, interesting. Feel a bit sorry for Robinson, maybe a loan to league 1 (Walsall?) would do him some good.

I think like fredericks his fortunes will change, but if i were his agent, i would do my homework on the next move and ensure that the team he goes to play the right way for him as a priority.

4.4.2 or 4.3.3 

good shout on walsall but remember who is in charge now.

SOD does for wide players what king Herod did for babysitting.!!

apologies thats my xmas joke out of the way now

Interesting. Have heard also that Wagstaff will be away in January, presumably to L1 club (and who could blame him?).

If so, with the strong possibility that El-Abd will remain at Swindon too and three (or 4) of our loan players moving on we'll need to bring five in at this rate.

That is true, it was more based on location and the fact Walsall are doing well! What about Wes, reckon he will get more minutes or is a loan a possibility? Appreciate you may not be able to say much about this though.

These players would bulk the squad nicely and add some Championship experience:

  • Eldin Jakupovic on loan. Not getting any game time at Hull and would add some competition for Fielding
  • Extend Liam Moore's loan. He hasn't been great but has Premier League experience and is versatile.
  • Bradley Dack permanently. Has scored a lot of goals for a midfielder and would give other otpions other than Pack.
  • Louis Thompson on loan. Energy and pace in midfield
  • Kyle Lafferty on loan with the option of signing on a permanent. An alternative to Wilbraham and has showed his class in the Euro qualification for Northern Ireland.

Also terminate Robinsons and Cox's loan. A waste of money and their time.

I might be wrong but I think we can only make 8 loan signings per season so therefore we only have 2 of them left to make?

Pretty sure (someone will know) it is now a higher figure than 8.

Read something on here that we have already had our maximum aged over 24 players on loan, can anyone confirm if that is the case?
