    Assuming nobody significant leaves, all we need is a quick, mobile striker to rival Baldock for a place up front and stretch opposition defences.

    Someone like Chuba Akpom from Arsenal, who helped Hull to promotion last year. He'd fit the bill for me. Get him in on loan and we're snorted.
    With 3 goals in 36 games, he's not what we need.

      IN - 1 (cover for Baldock)
      OUT - 3 (Manu perm, Kaz perm, Towell on Loan)
      Reducing the squad down to 24 players isn't wise.

      We'll have learnt lessons from last season with regard to injuries.

      Baldock is hardly prolific, but he's effective. What we need is some competition for him.

      Its pretty rare you'll suddenly bring in someone who'll bag you 10-15 goals between January and the end of the season, those type of players are rarely available. If that's really what you're waiting for, I think you'll end up disappointed. We're on +21 GD, goalscoring isn't really a problem. The squad just needs a little fine-tuning, some decent backup, and this kid would fit the bill IMO.

      The difference being we now have cover in every position plus additional versatile cover except for Baldock. I would be happy for Texiera to come back as that cover.

      I'd have a shortlist of 3 players as potential loan signings - Peter Crouch, Joao Teixeira and Jonathan Calleri.

      It's so difficult. Goals in League 1 mean little, goals in the Championship will leave you little change of £10 mill, while strikers from the Prem are on huge money.

      Even in Spain you're taking a punt. The likes of David Rodriguez - who was sh1t with us - has since bagged 46 goals in 102 appearances for Alcorcon.

      Any Prem striker you can get is likely to have been kicking his heels and will want first team action, and Glenn Murray isn't getting dropped any time soon.

      Tex, Russell, Akpom, Clough, Jerome Sinclair I would be thrilled with any of these as competition for Baldock

      And all should be available....ish
      I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.

      Hughton was pretty sanguine live on the radio earlier today - really doesn't sound like we'll be doing much at all. Cover/competition for Baldock will be it I reckon, we're pretty well covered in every other position.

      Having just 24 players really is risking it.

      We currently have 26, why reduce that ?

      Quite normal... all smoke and mirrors. Clear to all what's needed and after just missing out can't see us going short now.
