    I'm with you blue.
    If we want to be a footballing side I wouldnt have a player bigger than 6'2" or 6'3".
    In general, big lumps are becoming a thing of the past.
    An athletic CB of 6'2" is ideal in my mind.
    I wouldnt even have one 6'6" CB in the squad. It suggests you'd change your team to suit the opposition, probably compromising our game plan.
    Not that I think we have a game plan at the moment.

    Looks like we're signing Simpson from Bournemouth. He's 6ft 4ins so not one of Snow White's little friends. My Cherries contact tells me he's quick and athletic, unlike Flint.

    Just need to get Ng in now. That will be a £2m plus spend.

    I assume Sol is out of the picture regarding playing so we have 3 CBs (when fit).
    Suppose we need another for cover.
    Yes, a RB is essential.
    Not a bad commitment by Tan. Whether its wise investment only time will tell.
    The wage bill needs some adjustment now.

    That's some really good news - I didn't really want Guilbert on loan or we'd be starting all over again in the summer.

    Yes that’s a positive. Surely he’s got to go straight into the team (with Simpson if he signs - has he yet?) on Wednesday which will allow Bacuna to take one of the slots in midfield from either Pack who’s suspended or Vaulks depending on what setup Harris has in mind for what really must I think be seen as a must win game to get the negative feeling at the club out of the way.
    Suspect Watters will be on the bench if Moore starts.

    Simpson is having his medical at City today along with Ng.

    Disappointing about Simpson so what about the Scottish central defender OS picked up on?

    Not sure about a 6ft 6ins lampost with an unsavoury off the field background.

    I know we have had some great Scottish signings in the past but I have reservations on this one.

    29, never played outside the very average Scotch League. Not one I’d be pursuing.

    Just hope Morrison is fit for Wednesday

    According to WoL (yeah yeah I know) the Simpson move may still be on.

    Fingers crossed.
