He can't buy or loan players until the summer, but I believe that we can sign players who are available on a free(?) If so let's hope he has his scouts out there scouring the free market for a left-back and a holding midfielder. His first priority needs to be stopping the rot and keeping us in the Championship. If we get anywhere near the playoffs it would be a miracle and not worth thinking about right now. Of course, it's possible that he (Pearson) could simply walk away from us at the end of the season if he doesn't like working with the SL, JL and MA and we'd be back where we started all over again.
