    I always thought he would be good for us ER but would he now fit into what (I know what I would like) our ethos of the team should be, young hungry talented players who can push the club forward and grow with the team, not older players who let's be fair are big earners for little in return regarding length of playing career (tim sherwood and the like), and just use us for end of career wages, we have been there so many times, and yes we have had gems wisey and the like but I don't think Jason Roberts would have the same impact as the likes of Wisey had.

    yes shelvey started one match for them and was only on the bench because gerrard lucus and spearing were all out and now gerrard and spearing are back he will go back out on loan, as dagleish said he would once they were back and yes the mellor who scored 8 goals in those starts though.

    We were linked with a loan deal for Shelvey not long ago. If AT is given some money (as he seems to think) Shelvey would be a good shout - assuming he will go back out on loan.

    He's not very pacey but really strong I would like a cody Mcdonald type player but more prolific

    Mellor is pretty poor imo. Was always bigged up to be a big player, but has never really cut it. Has started to find the net a bit more consistantly now, but I fear he wouldnt be the best option for us.

    i mentioned him last time round before he was loaned to Hull. Think he's back with Leicester now, and still out of favour, and is a goal scorer!

    Him or Tamas Priskin for me. Priskin has had a rough ride at Ipswich but proved at Watford he could perform in this league.

    Andrew surman would be another realistic player that I would like to see at Cov but I think he is now back in the Norwich side

    Surman is not a realistic target. What about Lowe?

    Waghorn was my initial thought too

    Must admit Sheffers is liking his new role. But how long will we perservere with it i wonder??

    Still need bodies in, but I wudnt necessarily change the line up while its working to accomodate the incoming players (if any). Dont want to unsettle the current squad although most players have been vocal in agreeing we need more bodies.

    I do believe we need a left back tho as Hussey hasnt performed too well of late; hes pretty inconsodtant tbh, but while hes got no competition for the LB slot, hes bound to get complacent.

    Mellor cannot even run anymore can he, hes totally overweight and not what we would be looking for quite injury prone too.
    If you was to go for a more of a like for like of juke, then someone like Priskin,Hulse,Kane at spurs.

    Hulse wudnt be a bad target, but it wud only be short term. Hes about 32 now isnt he? Maybe a loan until the end of the season?

    Kane (Spurs) has gone to Millwall.

    Kanes gone to millwall ! What! Yes hulse on loan obviously, knows the division well and is still able to find the net, and yes a lb would be good although i do believe attacking wise hussey especially with his crossing ability is one of the best in the league, still a little bit of work to be done on the defensive side.

    yes, without a doubt Hussey has got a peach of a cross.

    I read the other day Kane had agreed to go to Millwall, along with another Spurs youngster
