Costa, Defoe, Falcao, Ozil and Lingard, what on earth has this thread become:facepalm:

 

As I said the other day, a Vardy understudy should be our main priority in January, we are pretty much ok in all other areas. These two fit the bill, not some washed up stopgap.

 

 

 

Finally some sensible selections.

We won't bring anyone in over 30.

We also, won't bring a "Star" in. We don't need to, we have the best striker in the PL.

What we will look to do is bring in someone aged 19-24 who we can bring in and let settle for a year or two as Vardy plays less games each season, with the hope that they eventually replace him before moving on for £60m plus.

 

My shortlist would be Daka, Edouard or Armstrong. Young, quick forwards with good goal records.

I would put all our attention and resources into getting a striker this window. 

 

We have been lucky so far with Vardy, and yesterday showed how we will struggle without him. 

 

I'm not saying we could find a like for like, but we really do have to roll the dice again and at least try get a competent striker in.

get Diego there’s a trophy there, only need 15 -20 games of him , 6 month contract And a red card thrown in , well worth the punt .  

 

                       

 

Yeah what a great idea. Let's move our GOAT out wide to accommodate a washed up player who's not fit to lace his boots.

He's gonna walk away in the summer for nothing!

 

**** that, if we're paying over 5m for him we may as well gamble and try to get him in the summer.

You say this but you get the player today rather than wait 6 months. Not to mention the player will likely increase the amount he requires as a sign on bonus if he’s going for free and the fact that a 6 month loan of a quality player can cost 5mil in fees. 

It sounds silly but when you scratch the surface sometimes it can be worth paying a little to get it done. 
 

Personally, I wouldn’t be against a 7-10m move. Simply because I think a new  striker could be the difference in qualifying for Europe again.

We must get a striker in this window. I still think Nacho has a role to play for the rest of the season as the more firepower we have the better in my opinion. 

I think Nacho always plays like a rabbit in the headlights. He lacks technique, final touch, awareness and confidence. These are basics a talented footballer demonstrates in his late teens so I reckon Nacho will always lack those qualities

I agree. We need to move him out next summer, but for the next few months he would be OK as third choice.

Yeah that's true when you put it like that, just annoying that they haven't even registered him to be able to play but want 15m for him, but I guess they'll price him at that and expect to probably receive half of it. 7.5m I could live with, Slimanis wages going would cover his once he goes.

Napoli are having a fcukin laugh, they want 15m for a player they cannot use and who will walk away for free in the summer? There's trying to bluff a shit hand and then there's this.

I agree with you 100% BUT if it takes £15m and he’s willing to come here would you pay it? I still can’t think of a better forward for that money.

Would make sense for the player too. 6 months of top 6 Prem battle to push himself into the Euro squad

I think it will be very interesting to see where in the squad we strengthen next. For once, I don't think there are really any glaring weak areas. A backup striker is probably the biggest concern, but I don't know if we'll bother until we can sell Nacho. Maybe a backup for Tielemans, but I think KDH could be that when he returns in the summer. We have some real depth in defence now, both centrally and out wide.

 

If I had to guess, I'd say we probably won't sign anyone in Jan unless there's a bargain to be had. In the summer, I think we'll maybe get a couple of younger squad players, either Under permanently or a different RW and replace any outgoings.

You found them in your post. Without vardy and Youri we are hopeless, because there's no one in the squad to stand in for them.

I’m personally not as worried about youris cover. I’m fairly certain Praet would adequately fill in for him (or as well as any cover could do)

I love cannabis and am high as much of the day as possible. But even I’m not that spaced out to have JV playing behind anyone and definitely not wide right mate.

Vardy cover/replacement is certainly the main concern. Would be nice to pick up a deep lying passer though. I like Dennis, but in a more advanced role than what Youri plays.
