    This might be one in addition but I've been getting my hopes up over a post on here by someone who attended a dinner with NC. The quote (from the OP at least) was that a signing for January was already made and that it would "shake the football world". That's why I think (if what NC said is accurate) that we've got a PL striker who wants games ahead of the Euros....

    Thanks for clearing up exact words mate I remember those terms used also now.

    So it was from a poster on here? Not exactly concrete then! However you cam never rubbish somebody's statement until you know the facts.

    If this is true and were talking about a premier league player dropping down a league ( still not huge if he isn't wanted )

    The only two out of favour who would be classed as huge would be Berbatov and Defoe for my reckoning?

    But what do I know lol :rolleyes:

    Unpopular I know, but I would like to see a fit Michael Owen play with Lambert...typical big guy/little guy combo.

    Berbatov is coming back from an injury isn't he? Defoe would easily make it into a starting 11 in another prem team, but I guess you never know.

    Defoe I could possibly imagine he has been quoted already saying he would drop a division or move abroad to increase his chances of playing at the euro finals ( probably some awful tabloid )

    I doubt Defoe considering Redknapp just said on his interview that he doesnt want to spend in the window because he's hoping Defoe will return from injury and save them having to buy another striker.

    Would love Owen......

    I said when this was talked of before that it would be Defoe. Here's hoping.....

    And for those saying this and that about Beckham, there is one thing you can say about the bloke - wherever and for whoever he has played he's always put in a shift.

    Are you insane - no offence intended but who wouldnt want any of those 3 players - particularly Torres...

    He'd get in my team if I was NA!

    Someone like Odemwingie would blow my mind - Can't see it happening though given WBAs current league position and how important he is to their team.

    Why is everyone so bloody obsessed with the team spirit!! it can only take you so far as we have found out lately......not wanting to sign Torres because it would upset the team spirit !?!?!? Our bubble has burst and I can see us sliding down the league unless we make some signings in January. Bring back Puncheon make at least 3 good signings and TRY and offload De Ridder, Forecast, Seabourne, Barnard, Dickson

    Why stop there? I mean, what have the rest of that bunch of useless underperforming clowns done recently? Get em all out I say.

    I was reasonably happy with our position until I read that "our bubble has burst", now I'm off out to slash my wrists.

    No one's saying we shouldn't make signings. People are saying that they would rather sign level-appropriate players who come here in good form and with the right attitude rather than overpriced big shots who would only come for a final payday or to revive a seriously stalled career.

    You're right...our injured and backup players haven't performed this season. Hopefully we can stay up.
