    I think the season thus far has been mixed.

    Things only went badly until the Norwich game, and we played well vs. City and Chelsea.

    I still think we will make top four. That said, we need to buy and sell in the coming window. Regarding buys, I don't think we need a striker, however we need more midfield depth. We also need a full-back to cover for Gibbs. Respecting departures, Santos, Arshavin and Gervinho need to leave.

    Ive not been a big Gervinho fan since he arrived here but I dont see the sense in selling him now. He can still offer something in an injury crisis

    We could re-sign Nasri and convert her to left-back but, as seen against Norwich, he has a problem when going in to kiss someone. He kisses the shoulder and not the actual face.

    Perhaps that is a good thing.

    When you're halfway through the season and already have scored 14 goals, you have a lot of leverage at the negotiating table. Good for him..now please don't go back to shit now that you got the contract you wanted.

    Better this Walcott deal than Dembe Ba and Walcott gone. Now let's sign a goal scoring right wing who can be a little older and proven quality since we have young Ox developing there as well, plus an ambidextrous offensive fullback to share time with Jenks and Gibbs.

    It's unbelievable how much wages have went up over the past two years, thanks City and Chelsea you have destroyed the market.

    FFS what have players done to warrant 80 and 90 k a week wages? Even Wilshere as highly rated as he is, one good season and he's on 80 k a week.

    Fellani would be a dream. Plus he already went up to super star class when he head butted Shawcross.

    Having said that he would be atleast 20 mill plus for us to get him. Don't see how Everton would let him go for less than that.
