    Come on guys, Surely it's a striker that we need!,

    Well, with the opening of the January transfer window just 24 little hours away, surely it's a proven goalscorer that we need to sign first and foremost.

    Think about it?, Hemed is completely off form, Zamora can't play every game, Wilson can be recalled at any tim, and Baldock isn't back from injury yet. Thats our four senior strikers spoken for.

    We all know that it's goals that win games, and we simply haven't been, and still aren't, scoring enough. If we can somehow find someone who will bag us 10 to 15 goals between now and the end of the season, l feel that that should be our priority.

    Yes another winger would be nice, and most certainly a left back, (although we appear to have Ridgewell now), but we have players for these postions who should be back from injury soon anyway.

    An in-form striker is someone we don't have at the moment, so let's go all out and bag ourselves one, it could make all the difference come the end of the season.

    A lot easier said than done I know.

      I know getting into positions etc is part of a striker's job, but we aren't creating chances.

      Since we lost LuaLua, Baldock and March, the strikers have had no service.

      One of the wingers is also handicapped by having to play alongside Calderon.

      Isn't Baldock meant to be a striker?

      Correct. Not having a LB who will bomb on in their natural position really hasn't helped Murphy. My god we've been unlucky I really believe that - roll on Jan and some players back ASAP.

      Ps I think Wilson will be the man to net a lot of goals although another striker would help too... Hemed does a lot of good work but isn't a natural scorer..
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, that’s it. We have done it.

      Yes, we do need reinforcements in the striker department - hopefully Uncle Tony will deliver somebody in the next few weeks.
      However, if you take a look at our results in December, we've actually scored more goals in those six games than in the previous six - problem has been conceding. We've let 10 in over the last six games. Before that it took us 10 games to concede 10.
      Clinical finisher required – and a real tighten up at the back.

      He is but he was very good at 6 yard layoffs too.
