    Who do you think we could get

    Judging by his antics yesterday I think oHare wants to sign , would love to see us get Collins from Luton as well

    Josh Ruffels from Oxford United if they do not go up. Was at our academy until 2013 and then get released. He's a very versatile player who converted to left back from centre midfield.

    I can't help but to feel that Willis could do a job, but he is likely to be on a cushy salary at Sunderland.

    So far we have 2 ex-Coventry players, a player who we have on loan and player born in Coventry.

    Thankfully, our scouting team's lens is a bit wider.

    So did Bright Enobakhare going by his antics. Early days yet with a lot of uncertainty for players and clubs.

    Ivan Toney would be a good signing. Just for the laughs really.

    Thought Dennis Politic looked like a really good young player, would probably also be pretty cheap from Bolton.

    No idea. Some quality young players who we can make a profit on and who will develop here. A couple of players who know the league to support. Some decent Prem loanees.

    Matty Taylor from Bristol City could be decent. I dont think he has scored too many at Championship level but i also can't seeing us being able to afford a striker with a proven record in the division either

    Politic and Zouma from Bolton are both a really good pair of young players. Would be fairly affordable too.

    We already have better CB's than Willis. We also have a very good developing side, many of which will make the step up and surprise a few. That apart some tinkering and one or two players from a higher level, not lower will impact the side. Midfield, striker and certainly a strong left wing back. Don't expect dramatic changes, its a good side. A couple of headline signings could do the trick. With an expected windfall of some £7m we should be in a very good position to attract what we need. With the championship playing out the season MR's has ample time and will be first out the blocks, even getting to look at some of his targets playing.

    Feel like we need:
    - LB to provide competition or be no1 over Mason
    - CB to upgrade Macfazdean who would become a bench player
    - Liam Walsh or similar
    - Callum O'Hare or similar
    - Top quality Central Midfielder to push one of Kelly/Shipley/Westbrooke to bench
    - 1 or 2 Centre Forwards

    Politic would exactly fit and is an area we have been weak. 2 good loans from Premier League clubs. Maybe even three.

    Recruitment is generally good at the city but under Robins there have been a few whoopers come through the door. On a tight budget we can’t afford to have the likes of a Kastaneer, Vincenti, Brown, Agogo etc type of signing. Each addition will need to be quality and good to go in order to keep us up or build on to eventually make a go of it in that league.

    This next window will be a good indication as to what ambition we have, I just hope it matches that of MR

    in terms of where we need to strengthen I’m afraid to say I think it’s everywhere minus RB and GK. In Dabo and Marco we have good championship, consistent quality.

    Dennis Politic is a good shout, would like to see him and O’Hare behind the striker. Wonder if there’s anything in these links with Gustavo Hamer and Ike Ugbo. Also feel Luke Garbutt would be a good signing for LWB.

    Few players from Portsmouth are out of contract including Burges, and I wouldn't say no if City put a bid in for Marcus harness.

    Ben Whiteman from Donny would be good too. Still pretty young and getting better.

    Agree - he looked very good. And at only 20 fits our recruitment profile perfectly.

    He's refused two offers from Villa and then tweeted a vid of himself in sky blue wig and boombox singing 'City's going up'. He seems like a really good kid - I love him.

    Happy with Marosi tbf, the rest would be great though!

    I'm worried about our financial position. We are going to have income of 6million. This year everyone floating around the relegation zone is way way way above that.
