I'd be happy with Gareth "Christian" Bale or Holly "Windinthe" Willoughby, but if we are going to compete with the top clubs we really need to be going for both.

I know it ranks in the "I've got more chance of sleeping with [insert name of smoking hot actress]", but I would like us to at least try and talk to Real about Bale. He's come out and said he's not ecstatic about being there and would like to return to the Premier League. Spurs and Man Utd are mooted to be interested also so it's a (very) long shot but we have the money and supposedly the ambition. Can you imagine Grealish and Bale together ?

Seriously? Our owners are worth a few quid but they aren't going to be spending 500k a week on one players wages! Even if they could FFP would put a spanner in the works.

Chelsea can sign players in January after having their Fifa transfer ban reduced following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The Premier League side were given a two-window ban by Fifa in February for breaching rules on signing young players.

I like to think that with our current managerial structure it hasn't gone unnoticed that we are coming up short in the centre-forward position and know full well that it cannot go on without rectification.  My hope is: that a particular target(s) has been identified and come the opening of the window we shall see someone none of us thought possible or, have never heard of.

I still think we had a deal lined up for another striker in the summer transfer window and that is why we shipped Hogan out on loan (not that he would have been much use really), but it fell through.

There are a lot of rumours that Belotti will be moving in the January window. He would be a major step up on big Wes.

Do you remember when Agnetha from ABBA had a relationship with a random bloke who was stalking her?

Smith loves a wide forward , can't get enough of them
We may see moves for these types than a traditional striker
Now what's interesting is the Danish international Sisto.
A 9million bid made on deadline day but the player opted against.
Hes hardly had any game time if any in Spain and I think Villa will go back in for him
A wide left winger can play right and central.

Personally I like to see Grealish , Jota or ElGhazi play as central striker.
All 3 intelligent footballers with great control and ability.
Jota or Grealish as central striker would be like a firmino type.
Its worth a trial against Liverpool kids in the cup.

Didn't he come out and say his Pastor advised him against signing for us when Sherwod wanted him?

God told Joseph Yobo to sign for Everton, apparently.
