Re: Transfer window

Even the most pessimistic on here can't think we won't be signing anyone. Hart, Hendrick and Lennon have gone and even with them we didn't really have a full 25 man squad. You only have to look at our bench for the Palace game to know that with a few injuries we can't even manage a full bench.

Kust seen it os Sky highlights. Wasn't an elbow but swung his arm at Brownhill and caught him in his face with his forearm. Definitely a yellow and a deserved red depending on which team you support.

Re: Shopping list

We definitely need a CB replacement for Gibson and a young fit pacey right wing. After that it's an attacking midfielder and possibly a striker depending on Barnes fitness. That's about as much as we can hope for in the current climate.

Not convinced we'll be up for this and predicting a 0-2 win for Watford. Hope I'm wrong but with our injuries and lack of options on the bench I think we could struggle in our next few games. Luckily we have enough points IMO and relegation isn't an issue.
