    What positions need strengthening ?
    Which players should we look to sign ?
    Any rumours going around ?
    Who should we look to loan out ?
    Who should we look to sell ?
    Who do we need to keep ?

    Any position could be improved if the right player is available and within our means. Strong midfielder would be good as would a more natural finisher than we have

    We’re in desperate need of wingers seeing as Allassani isn’t trusted enough to make the starting eleven and pretty much everyone else is injured. Would probably be looking at one permanent signing and one on loan until the end of the season, but wouldn’t have a clue on names.

    Unfortunately I think it’s time for Andreu to move on. Can imagine he’ll be a reasonably high earner, as will Ogogo who I’d gladly see leave but I can’t imagine that happening just yet. Pretty happy with the rest of the squad.

    Ogogo would be a high earner I would imagine and Andreu aswell. Of course we know that we need a striker who can find the net but doesn’t most teams in this League?
    That would be my priority.

    2 x wingers is a minimum we need to bring in this window, a target man be desirable if something suitable can be done but it’s all about wingers this January.

    No player is off limits for me to wheel and deal a opening to get the right players in.

    Can see Andreu being moved out if we find a club interested as Westbrook put in a decent display today for me he will hopefully build on that.

    Love to see CJ Hamilton join from Mansfield.

    Side note: I notice Jayden Stockley and Hiram Boateng are both out of contract at the end of the season, worth making a move for either of them? I know they are 2 names often mentioned on here.

    You also said Jch was missing piece when we signed him I think. Simply because he had played in lower leagues iirc

    Wanted gone or find better investment with the proceeds to structure the squad?

    Anyway, yes took his goal well, weighted poke to Hiwula to slot away today also. But on today’s performance that was his highlight over the 98 mins, a few searching balls put forward which I’d rather not discourage so again positive but other than that.... anonymous.
    Was the 69th 70th min before he made a decent interception before the last 10 mins he made some critical blocks recovering from the space the two Southend players had down our left.

    As I said the other day I hope he takes the confidence from the positive aspects and finds some more consistent form and he retains my support over the match.

    Not sure on your point on JCH, who MR is asking to play another way to what he’s done his professional career?

    Ask your question I’ll give you my honest answer as ever.

    750k is a lot if he is out of contract in 6 months.

    The amount already spent on Ogogo is ridiculous to be letting him go already!

    Guess it depends on the options. If he's on a big whack then could we offload to bring in somebody more effective or a couple of players?

    Doesn't look like he's going to feature much.

    His signing on fee alone was silly imo but that’s what got him here I guess!

    That's the thing :( now he isn't even making the bench.

    Unless he's injured again.

    What was his fee?

    Anonymous? Do you think Kelly carried that entire central midfield on his own? A 'Tidy workman like performance today' doesn't equate to carrying a L1 midfield against a top half L1 team. Which central midfielder are you undervalueing?

    I’m not suggesting he carried the entire midfield, his performance alone was workman like the ground he covered and dirty work done was admirable and thankfully Southend failed to ask telling questions till we became stretched in the last 10 mins a few occasions

    Agree with your line of thinking on current players for selection, but add two natural tricky wingers and are we still the same side or a more dangerous proposition for teams.

    Robins said he would be going in to xmass wonder I believe so maybe we have room to manoeuvre even without selling.

    Does anyone know if we have a transfer budget for Jan or is it linked to off loading players to make some headroom?

    That’s the ideal situation but I’m basing it on minimum in the pot to lesson the reliance on finding another Thomas as opposed to a Maguire-Drew or Barrett.

    Id sooner do a deal in the summer but we need them wide players desperately

    Robins said after Luton I think that players would have to leave.

    Said in the first month of the season on here we need a central midfielder who can dictate play put his foot on it and a proper target man still think that’s needed maybe another winger.

    Read all where Preston have triggered his 750k release clause,Pompey also said to be interested in the player we may have missed the boat on this one.

    I’m sure in the summer Robins said he was holding some of his budget back for Jan how much who knows but I think faces will come in 2-3 at least.

    I think Sunderland are in for Stockley too - leave the bidding war to others on that one!
