Money for Nuttall too

Wages and player numbers substantially increased not forgetting the signing on fees we’d have been paying for the likes of Johnno, Holtby and Gally.

Martin Olsson is still a free agent ain't he? Not amazing but still a Bell upgrade

Still injured I think, both brothers actually. He wasn't fit enough to sign for a club here in Sweden before our window shut.

But yeah, I'd have him back if fit!

Probably one of the more depressing sentences I've read on this site. How we continue to fall.

Wonder if Steven Caulker fancies a move back to the UK. Still only 28 and currently playing in Turkey. Not a world beater but probably a decent option in the market we find ourselves in.

Could anyone see us going back for Jack Rodwell? He's still without a club and we need defensive cover. Not advocating it either way.

Not really matey, he looked better in midfield than he did in the back four.

There must be a solid centre back under 35 with a decent fitness record and championship experience hanging around somewhere looking for a club. Or someone released from a club higher up who have looked to trim their wage bill i can't see why we dither about so much in defence with this manager.

Mind you if you've paid an alleged million pound loan fee for someone i suppose you need to justify that first, still need solid back up though.  Oh for a Moran or Tony Gale or even Baptiste type who might not have the legs they once had but who can come in and use their experience to marshal that defend and put their nut on things !!!!

Anyone know what happened to the bury left back gregg Leigh. Came through the city ranks and looked a good player when he played against us. With bury going to the wall maybe he could do a job Until Cunningham gets fit. He looked strong, fast , could dribble, defend and cross. Only seen him play that one game but he really excited me. Although if he was that good surly he would be snapped up by now so maybe it was a flash in the pan game

He's now at Aberdeen on loan from a Dutch club

I want to know what happened to that Oldham right back, the one that was so good/dangerous that we had to play both Williams and Bell at home against them just to nullify him.

Our defence is fucked. Cunningham out all season (still might hang around for some reason, I assume we paid a loan fee and are therefore committed to the full season loan and wages so he might as well stay here since the lads love him so much...). Lenihan for 8 weeks. Hart out. Grayson out for a couple of months or so. Bennett a game from suspension. Williams and Tosin are injury prone. Right down to the bare bones, and we were shit at the back before any of this happened.

We absolutely need to be scouring the free agent market for a CB, now.

Tbf, it would probably take both of them on the left just to nullify me. Wouldn't let yourself get too excited about him on that basis.

Don’t disagree but 12 games in I doubt many will be match fit and in Tony’s regime he doesn’t pick them for 6 months even when they are

Doesn't really matter at this point. But Holtby kept himself in good nick.

He'll play them if we are all out of defenders.

Yep, got bored of listing them all so didn't even mention those! We didn't have them available before the recent injury crisis anyway. This whole defence thing has been mismanaged beyond belief!

Didn't see them but we definitely need an impact signing in the centre of defence not just yet another sticking plaster type to cover for the others although we need cover as well.

We need some real quality in there who does the basics well, a signing better than what we have which essentially is a lad converted a few years ago and a LB converted a few weeks ago.   Not really that difficult when you think about it especially when there has been a pot available but these lot are absolutely blind to it.

Probably because they choose to be.

Rochdale just signed Paul McShane last week. Don't know a great deal about him but he's a centre half whose been around the block a bit from all accounts.

MacNamee and Hawkins got a head to it or a boot to it and did what centre halves are supposed to do.  They also hardly ever missed a game unlike our current crop of centre halves.
