My view is that a 15th to 17th finish us realistic. More positive fans believe we will definitely finish higher than that. If either is true we should not be buying anybody in the January window unless, of course, they are much better than what we have and at a fair and reasonable price. The chances of that are very slim so I expect the club to hang on till the Summer. Buying in January is usually a sign of desperation or attempt to win something. Hope it's not the former and I don't think it will be the latter.

Unless of course the current the virus situation changes the window and allows good value to be had.
Lots of talk of french league being in financial trouble although I'd like us to go for Junior Firpo from Barcelona as a left back.

Hess Disagree with most of the points in your post. See us finishing higher than 15th. I think 9th is achievable. Also, chances are not "very slim" of signing someone better than what we have and reasonably priced. I see the chances of being about average. We are quite a popular PL team with some money. It's becoming clearer to me the weak link in the team is Klich and the new plan is to replace, rest, give him competition. He's a very good player but the combination of our style of play, the frenetic pace and quality of the PL plus all the games he's played for us over the last 2.5 years means he needs a breather. Management must see it. We fans can. I can see us going in for De Paul. We need more running to accommodate Bielsa's style. We need De Paul's heatmap! Yes, we could use better defenders but Cressy is coming through, Llo is back soon and Koch and Bera should both return end of February. With the 49ers about to increase their stake at this particular time, I see De Paul acquisition or similar in the very near future. I also disagree with your statement that a January signing represents an attempt to win something or desperation. Stability and preservation of status for financial reasons will be the reason for the signing. Finishing 17th not good for morale or health of fans who deserve better. Just a tweak that's needed and it's all about Klich.

Interesting. The good thing about speculation in football you can normally hang around to see what actually happens. The point I was attempting to make is that if we are sure of staying up. Don't bring anybody until the summer. If we were struggling because of the small squad, suspensions, loss of form etc then January it is. But in my book that would represent desperate measures. If we are not close to european football and we're not going down leave well alone.

again it is intent and perspective

teams like Cardiff and Norwich spent nothing and went down, is having the great belisa and spending 100million really only going to make difference of 19th to 17th? is that a good return for money spent

If I was the board I would be expecting top half finish for the money spent and with the strength of our squad I would not be happy with a relegation dog fight. we are better than that.

Long way to go Bermo . George on the money mate.
Let’s be honest Rad surprised us all in summer and this time I wouldn’t be shocked if a big signing arrives in next window. Depaul would be great.

21 Dec 2020 20:54:42
If we sign someone I’d like Charlie Taylor or a solid left back I would say a solid dm like batty but not sure still exists?

At start of season I predicted from 12th to 15th final placing. However ( so far at least) the concession of so many goals in many games makes Hess prediction of from 15th to 17th more likely.

The thing is finishing as low as 17th, so close to the bottom 3, would have made for a very stressful ( although ultimately finally relieving) season. So I do really, really hope we can finish a fair bit higher than 17th. The next 2 games are winnable and very important.

# points accumulation.

squad we have with rads investment made me think around 8th-11th my point is we have a quality gaffer so why is expectation so low?
