      Absolutely - and we should always be looking to improve the tem anyway - even Man. City are doing that!

      As you will see, at no point in my post do I suggest we shouldn't bother trying to find a striker - I know, as does everybody else, we are weak in that department. I hope we do get one, and I come on here every day looking for good news - or even a half decent rumour! I just can't stand - or understand - people pontificating that somehow it's an absolute certainty that we can't possibly stay up unless we sign this mythical being!
      There's nine teams below us; seven of them are going to have to play better than us for the remaining 16 games to put us down! That might not be a doddle for them, eh?
      I just canít help thinking if we donít then we r going down hope Iím proved wrong

      Of course you canít say with absolute certainty we will go down without signing a striker.

      But we desperately need one and all our concerns about not signing anyone in the summer have been proved correct. We simply donít score enough goals and that is the biggest risk to us going down.

      If anything happened to Murray we would be in serious trouble so we need something even just as backup.

      This concept that we can muddle through to the end of the season because January is a bad time to buy just doesnít cut with me.

      We have this problem because we cocked up in the summer and if it costs us now to put it right - then so be it. We all know what the reason will be if we get relegated.

      Hudd, Everton and Palace are actively signing players early in this window, investing heavily, just getting on with it. It's a must.

      Staying up is everything (not my words, but PB's back in August on BT Sport).

      Iím sure there will be a loan to replace Izzy. However this may just be cover for existing players. Given our fixtures are very biased (easier until end feb and then very tough) we would need a new striker very soon and to hit the ground running, otherwise they may mak little difference. I wonder whether the club may feel that we may have to make do with what we have and then if we can stay up sign THE striker in the summer? I hope Iím wrong...

      If we stick with what we have, we will be relegated imho?

      The failure to get a striker in since last May will weigh heavily on those involved, it will be a long road back to the Premier League - such a wasted opportunity.

      I already fear it is too late to find one, and every week that passes reduces our survival chances.

      I was sure that after the summer striker debacle that we'd have had one lined up to sign on Jan 1, 2 or 3.

      Seems like no lessons were learnt whatsoever, and it'll be more failure on Jan 31st

      If we don't get a proper striker we could still do something interesting along these lines:, kind of False 9 approach:
      Ryan
      Schelotto Duffy/BFG Dunk Suttner/Bong
      Stephens or Kayal
      March Propper Jose
      Gross Baldock

      Lots of pace to run at defences and a better bet than floating in crosses for a striker who isn't there

      Making the best of what we have got is why we are sitting 12th in the PL, without a new striker. If we just keep on doing what what we are doing we will be fine. Not at all bothered if we don't get a striker. We are improving all the time as well. Sheets dry here.

      That is the problem we are not points wise. Unless we start scoring we are headed for The Championship sadly.
