Looking at the transfer market, I have a gut feeling we are missing out on the players we need. Over the last couple of days,Port Vale,Notts County, Shrewsbury and Scunthorpe have snapped up what I would call gems, mainly on loan deals. There has been no news on any interest from the beloved lords of our club except about Codey from Truro, whom many clubs are interested in. Were nearly half way through the market deadline and all we have is a goalkeeper and an 'apprentice' striker. As the days go by, the games go by, and yes, I do realise it takes time for the phone calls to come in from agents etc, but I would really like to see players being signed up sooner than later, as we all know that as the deadline approaches,all that is left is the dregs, lets hope we get some gems soon.

Just a maybe here, but maybe clubs don't want to send their decent young players on loan to us because of the style of football Slade plays.

Bignot brought plenty of players in early doors in hindsight it never really worked.

To be fair, he wasn't given long to make it work and his last game was a comfortable away win against a team that got promoted. A goal would be a start!

Waiting doesn't always leave the dregs. A player may lower his sights a tad as the month goes by and we get someone we maybe didn't think we would. Wait and see what happens and if at the end of the month it's underwhelming, then have a pop.

A lot of the signings i have seen have been of the sort we have brought in so far.

Indeed. Jones came in at the last minute (I know he's not playing well at the moment but he's still one of our best players), whilst Gunning came in mid month.

In all honesty , reading between the lines of the " boards" recent statement i think its a case of get some out to release funds/budget to be able to get some more in.
Last transfer window it appeared that the board and manager were expecting/hoping a few would have gone out and we ended up being extremely top heavy in centre mid once Bignot had signed (9 was it ?) players in during the transfer window and hardly anyone went.  

We dont want that happening again.

That's true, but it wasn't out of the blue, we'd been chasing him for weeks

Reading the club statement the other day, it's a bit vague as to when the new 'quality' players will be arriving. It doesn't specifically state that they will be in this window as far as i can tell. Will some of the extra budget go on paying off players early?

If the player/s they have indentified and want are not available until the summer, will the fans accept that, given that most are now assuming we are signing some in the next three weeks? Think Russ had already hinted at that in the interview.
