JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

Sounds like Gallagher is the main focus with Austin and Assombalonga the backup options if he isn't available, and they'd only come in once Big T has assessed their character to make sure they will fit into the squad personality wise. 

Unless Waggott is throwing Boro off by lying to the media the scamp 🤔

Interesting -Waggott points out that players like Assambalonga come at  very high price.  Yet then says they could be pursued if Tony wants them.  Clearly there is money to spend. Ties in with what TM said a few days ago about paying over the odds for players from rival teams or looking at loan to buys/loans instead...we know he likes to get value.

Think we will end up with someone, possibly leftfield again if It's true Gallagher is staying at Saints.

Happy we"ve added Chapman though so anything else a bonus.

Really don't won't Gallagher don't rate him at all

Had his best scoring time with us. Still, I'd prefer Austin. Definitely need someone up  there.

Will be decidedly crapped off if we don't get anyone.

Not sure about Gallagher. 

He'd be going from being a bench warmer in the prem to bench warmer in the Championship. Unless we're planning a switch in formation or DG has an underlying injury we're not fully aware of (I don't buy into the fact he's a bit older and might need rest, I can still train 5 days a week at 37!). 

He doesn't really seem to have benefitted much from his last loan spells. 

Good option to have bringing him and Chappers on last 20-30 mins in games but you could argue Nuttall already provides that and we shouldn't be hampering his progress. 

Not totally against it, just not blown away with excitement.

Well it seems like sothampton want to keep Gallagher anyway, so I hope Tony has a plan up his sleeve.

Reports this morning that Southampton have received 4 loan offers for Austin from Premier League clubs, problem for them is that are they going to risk loaning/selling him to relegation rivals? However if there is Premier League interest I would imagine Austin himself pushing to stay in the Premier League.

Looks like we have competition for Gallagher from other Championship clubs.

We’d have heard something meaty by now if anything was going to happen. Just accept it and move on, we’ve cocked up another deadline day.

Not the end of the world if we don't.  Our weakest part of the squad was out wide and we've bought a winger.  

Two or three good signings in Summer and we'll have a good shout next year regardless of who comes down.

Any of them on 6 month loan would be a decent addition to the squad, who do you think Tony’s target is?

I disagree. We haven't got anything like adequate cover for Graham who will not play 90 mins every game and will sometimes need to miss a game.

That's if we are serious about the play-offs of course.

I think it's Gallagher, but if Villa are keen on doing plenty of business today then outgoings are going to be necessary. Kodjia might well be a late mover. Who knows hey? Gonna keep optimistic though. Even if we don't sign anyone today then I think the squad as it is, is capable of a play off push.

Sounds to me like we may miss out on all 3 for one reason or another , wonder if there's a back up to the back up list 🤔🤔 Scott Hogan has gone to Sheff Utd (he'd have been ok) but somebody earlier posted the amount of forwards they already had , I think Leon Clarke is on his way to Wigan but what about Washington or Mcgoldrick ?? If it's a loan til the end of the season and it's to take the pressure off Graham , they wouldn't be the worst of options then maybe re-visit Gallagher Austin or BA at the end of the season.

I'm still saying it will be somebody completely out of left field on loan, or nobody.

I think it always was, I don't doubt Madon that BA has been looked at but that was never really going to happen was it?

I agree but if we take what Southampton say at face value then he’s staying. So I’m going with Madons information and say Assombalonga on loan with an option to buy regardless of wages.

BA is the one I would want out of the 3, Gallagher the least exciting but has age and potential

Akinfenwa May come in to teach a few of the lads how to bulk up

Pandemonium on this board if McGoldrick or Washington is so much as mentioned. Both worse than we currently have and we're supposed to be only signing 'players that will come in and improve us'.

Would rather use Nuttall than either of them.

Cat amongst the pigeons time.  If we are looking at ex dingle forwards, then  how about a current one?  Vokes on loan would be just the type of player to replace Graham...

 

Going Stoke permanently. Though I agree a very good Championship signing.

Left field... Marquis? Sunderland have had a bid rejected.
