January Signings

Recommended Posts

Reckon we need a central midfield and a striker for certain.


Mentioned candidates include :


Chris Sutton

David Nugent

Andy Johnson

Robbie Keane

Thomas Gravesen

Sean Davis


Assuming 5 mill to spend - who would you go for ??


My bets would be on Nugent and Gravesen with Davis as Moyes' fallnback if Tommy goes to the Mancs.

Agree with both replies...


In the summer, despite having european football to offer and a side that appeared to be on the up, not to mention the funds available to spend, we were unable to attract any top-rated names, being continually overlooked in favour of other clubs --- given our current state, I can only see sutton, nugent or davis considering joining us...


nugent -- a youngster who is pretty well rated, but still largely untested (he's only played 30-odd games for preston, the rest were with bury in league 2)....for 1mn or less, he'd be worth a go


sutton -- almost 33 years old and WELL past his best - at best he would have a kevin campbell type-impact before quickly becoming yet another liability to the squad


sean davis -- not sure about our current spurs cast-off, should we really be going for another one?


Johnson -- given he's just back from injury and palace look good for a play-off spot I don't see him leaving before the end of the season UNLESS he still reckons a move to a premiership side will help his england chances...also can't see him being sold for less than 5-7 million


keane -- at the start of the season maybe...LESS THAN ZERO CHANCE NOW...he's a regular for spurs again (unlike last season), and in great form for a club who genuinely look like becoming a regular top-6 side -- and again, if he for some reason, did leave, he would NOT chose EFC as his new side (I reckon he'd do well in italy or spain)


gravesen -- more than anyone else I would love him to return...I was very upset when he left (despite many on here saying it wasn't a big deal cos he was never consistent for us before last season and was only playing for a big money move!!!)...unfortunately despite our 1st-option clause to buy him back, I'm not convinced we can afford him or his wages anymore --- the reported interest from man utd and man city does nothing to increase the chances which must be very slim...
