There's always Keinan, of course.
He has changed his name to Keinan Davis-Injured

Yes, ok. That would be great.

Better than one of those vague PM warnings about conduct that can't be replied to (or at least I think can't be replied to).

Deep breathing pal. If you get canned, I canít take the piss out of you for listening to Christmas carols!

I said before we played Brighton that Danny Welbeck would have been a good backup for Ollie. Clearly not the age of player we sign now, but a one year contact might have tempted him and wouldíve given us a chance to take Ollie off after 70 if itís not working.

I still worry about Watkins getting injured and us being totally knackered.

Haha. Ok. I'll do my best. I've had carols on today, also. The King Singers! They're the only non heavy music I listen to. Hope you're doing well, mate.

You need banning for carols! Unless they are heavy metal ones.

I am concerned we donít have adequate cover for strikers and Ollie to me looks a tad worrisome at times. And mr hologram/Hourihane whatever we call him is a grafter but goes missing in games but I do think he needs shipping out as the championship is his level. I fear we are stuck in Deanos win/lose streak. Need some gritty draws and stop conceding silly goals. Never happened whilst he has been in charge. We are either brilliant or losing.

"Whatever we call him"
Be strong pal, write in the 1st person and don't succumb to the peer pressure in the playground.

In every scenario I think we will need a CM come the summer so that must be the priority.
Iím not convinced but AMR but we havenít player Traore much so getting a new guy in there would be throwing good money after bad.

An improvement in squad depth is needed but quality reinforcements in full backs position particularly Left back
Taylor is out of contract in summer so a left back is imperative to boost squad depth in this role

I would argue by the summer a right back too is needed as another to fit Dean Smith profile.

A striker to dovetail with Watkins and be competitive to first team place and another midfielder to provide the extra drive and dynamism.

I understand Keinan Davis-Injured is now back in training.

I've come to the conclusion that Davies needs a loan spell away to get him going.
This is providing Villa sign up a quality striker in January window
I fear Wesley will be a long while getting up to speed to be fair that's a nasty injury so how he will turn out just don't know
Main thing is his recovery so don't want to berate the chap as don't think he's a prem level player but when fit I guess he's considered ahead of Davies.
I prefer Davies of the 2

But would much prefer a new striker to add in to the squad.

Taylor, Engels, Nakamba, Hourihane, Trez, Anwar, Davis

Those are the players we should be looking at upgrading over the next 2-3 windows for me.

January would probably be a less-aggressive approach and waiting for openings to reduce the workload in the Summer. Also get the ball rolling on the Barkley move. Ramsey might fill one slot too.
