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
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
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.
