What does your team need in January?

Recommended Posts

With the transfer window fast approaching, the circus will be back in town with Jim White donning a yellow tie and excited about the levels of greed in the Premier League. With that in mind, what does your team desperately need this January? 

How do you realistically rate your chances of improving areas of your team? 

Is your manager the right fit for the players you want?

Is your manager likely to buy shit you don't need?

With that in mind is ...

 

... Virgil van Dijk, finally Liverpool bound or getting relegated with the Saints?

... could Patrick van Aanholt, be unlikely option for Guardiola?

... Is Maroune Fellaini going to sign a new contract at United, he's resisted so far

A miracle.

You need another striker. And to sell Rooney.

I'd say we need another central midfielder.

Someone like Adrien Silva.

:D

If Adrien Silva had been Andres Iniesta, the Premier League wouldn't have given a fuck whether it had been 14 minutes let alone 14 seconds late.

Imagine we will go back in for Evans again.

Be interesting if we bother going back for Sanchez or not.

A CB and I think we are good till the summer. Won’t happen though, Klopp rarely buys in January.

Surely not buying a centre back in January is a colossal mistake though?

Keeper and a centre back are a must. Preferably a midfielder too. Doubt we'll make any signings in January though. Club will spin the 'January isn't a good time to buy' line.

I think Puel wants to play with more attacking full backs and it will see us buy a new right back as Simpson quite frankly isn't capable of it. A solid defender he is, a good supporting full back he is not. I could see us going after Ricardo Pereira - Portuguese right back playing for Porto who he had on loan at Nice two years ago.

Speaking of his Nice side, we've been strongly linked with Ben Arfa on loan. It's a risky move but Puel's the one manager in recent years who has gotten anything out of him. I'd have him in a heartbeat if he can get anything like that from him again.

I think this season ultimately though is going to be about gradually changing how we play. An outside push for the top 7 maybe but probably midtable and we go from there. I'd be amazed if we were relegated.

January isn’t a good time to buy though. Nobody wants to let their best players go half way through a season.

On the flip side, some of our best signings over the last ten years have come in January.

CB in January is a must. GK and actual DM would be good too.

I would rather give Ward a chance at GK.  But a CB is an absolute must.  Don't see it happening.

Cover for Alonso, and possibly a third striker if we get Morata or Michy out on the long term.

A goalkeeper and a number 10. It all depends on the takeover though as Mike Ashley won't bring guaranteed tv revenues forward because it could effect the clubs sale price.

It’s now becoming embarrassing that some of our own fans, after 2 years of being told, and after witnessing our style under Klopp, are still hoping for a DM to be signed. 

KLOPP DOESNT PLAY WITH ONE! HE DOESNT USE A DM! HES ACTUALLY SAID IT HIMSELF!

It explains all those goals conceded away from home.

A new stadium so we can start all over again and do things properly again...  Or that remote control in one of Adam Sandler's movies (CLICK I think) where we can go back and do it ourselves.

Are you trying to say that he's never played with one, even before here? Because he has, so it's not unreasonable to think, or hope, that we will eventually sign a proper midfield destroyer.

Left back to replace Baines by the start of next season.

Centre back with some pace to partner Keane.

Defensive/ball playing midfielder to replace Barry if Schneiderlin can't get his shit together.

Attacking midfield including wide players I have no clue because we already have too many players there but none that can consistently deliver.

Striker most of all obviously. 

A bit of this could possibly be solved by fixing Coleman, Bolasie, Funes Mori and Barkley if he ends up staying whilst also recalling Dowell and Onyekuru if they keep impressing.

For the third time in the last four years we now need to pay a premium to sort the problems we were meant to adress in the summer.

@Batard I genuinely thought the opening post about Van Aanholt going City was a joke. Absolute scenes if we can make a profit on him. Good player when focused but throws his toys out the pram too often.

A certain ITK on this forum reckons that we want Nathan Redmond. Puel a big fan.
