With the ever boring international break just beginning and the last match leaving a sour taste in my mouth, I need something to keep my mind occupied.

I know the last transfer window didn’t go to plan, but we can always hope (please god!!!) that something will happen in January. I know we don’t normally do a lot of business in Jan but we did get Moura last time.

I would love to bring a CM in. Diawara, N’dombele or Haidara would be great.

(If there is a similar thread to this, I will delete.)

A very much doubt our cash flow is looking too healthy with stadium delays. I wouldn’t get your hopes up. I’m expecting nothing even if we sell.

This is why people have meltdowns during transfer windows. They lead themselves on fantasy journeys for months on end and wonder why reality smacks them in the face.

There’s no quality available in January, clubs don’t want to sell their best players, better value to be had in the summer, Poch won’t play them until next season anyway, Money is there if right player is available. Lessons have been learnt.

Think that covers it.

The winter window sees much more action these days then it used to, so something could happen.
We probably need to sell to buy. Seems a bit of luxuary in that situation to have two international right backs when we have KWP coming through.
If we get bids for Aurier, N'koudou and Janssen then maybe we can get someone decent in.

Last january was a game changer, expect to see lot of activity again, overall not here of course.
But it is possible to do something in january these days. Lucas was a find last time.

I'm sure we won't sign anyone but I really hope we are looking intensely at ziyech and de Jong from Ajax. Even if they don't join till summer. Would take them both in a heartbeat.

Haidara is rumoured to join Leipzig in January ... lots of german/austrian based papers covered it.

Not weird enough that Red Bull clubs Salzburg and Leipzig play each other in EL group stages - Haidara would play against Leipzig knowing he will be there in January

Think the fact we didn't manage to offload any deadwood - suggests we would only sign someone if we sell - e.g. Dembele - or hopefully Sissoko

on the contrary my friend, the window went completely to plan. Issue bullsh*t rumours of a warchest- check. Sell out STs and cheese room- check. BSoDL insist we can only complain after the window has slammed shut on our noses- check.

We know that when we sell that pussy Eriksen, who couldn't tackle an empty crisp packet, the proceeds won't be used on the stadium to optimise the value of ENICs investment? Don't we?

We'll only buy in January if;
We're properly in with a shout of the title
We're worried about finishing too low (whatever that may be)

I see no reason to buy no one in the summer, then buy in the winter.

Mine would be to transfer the fickle minority of fans we have that have been going OTT with their criticism every time we lose.No problem with constructive shit, but alot of it has been ridiculous.
We win our next game we are top.... Keep it fucking real
Sorry for going off topic.

Our only really pressing need is a long term replacement for Dembele. If we were to splash out on AMFs or CBs we'd have some unhappy players sat on the bench, particularly since we don't pay them gazillions to do it. I'm not expecting anything tbh.

If we didn't buy in the summer as most teams do then almost certainly we will not buy in January probably trim the wage bill by letting people go but no incomings.
As for being low it depends on what the point of view is it's unlikely that we would be mid table or below and the league is out of reach so it's a toss up between 4th spot and Europa league which is about right for our club.

Considering we didn't spend any of our 150M kitty from the summer and we have had a couple youth outgoings I look forward to seeing what our January budget will be. I have a feeling we are going to go big.
