Wonderful another kid , don't know anything about this young kid and he may be just what we need . But wish we were getting some proven pros who can get stuck in and win the ball in the midfield .

Yeah because there are an abundent of 28 year seasoned pros available for loan in feb are there!
.
A wide man was one of the areas I said we could do with another body and sure this will be in place of N'Guessan.

Don't see a problem in looking at getting a winger in, after last Saturday it was glaringly obvious we are severely limited with anyone that can get to the by-line and deliver a decent cross.

Totally agree, one area Cooper needs to improve is the width. We need a good winger - could be our chap!

LR, Thinking about our midfield shortfalls, did Danny Holland go back out on loan after returning to the Addicks from the Gills

I presume with this signing in mind Miles Storey is out of the picture due to injury or not fancied, as understand he can play wide or down the middle?

Meadow - that was the pan to use him as a wide forward - but Cooper has said recently he likes to play in a 442 up top and they are working on his game - so unless we switch to playing 2 up I can't see him featuring much beyond coming off the bench to add some pace
.
OTR - think he has gone back and is at Charlton. Though I thought wages were an issue as that is why we never kept him on and why nothing happened when we werelooking at him in the summer
.
Granted he worked really well with Ferry in the 442 - but is he really the player to sit and break things up in a 4231/433?
.
Would see him more as a box-to-box player which Luongo and Kasim are
.
Sammy Clingan is not playing much at Killie - now he would be a player we could do with! Though like hollands think his wages would be a massive problem as this is why he left Coventry. Though being unemployed for months and then going to Donny and Killie may have brought that down?
