Van Aken?

 

I think he was signed in the summer of 2017? 

 

Regarding the January Window of 2017, I missed out the Loan signing of McManaman which made that window even more frustrating given his lack of an impact too.

Again, we don’t play that way

 

We still put a lot of crosses in. The quality and position from where we cross is mostly abysmal and has been since Rhodes signed. You can't sign players like this and then not put any quality into the box for them. We are not good enough to tip tap into the box and if we were, we wouldn't be slumming it in the lower part of the Championship. Nearly all of our strikers are good headers of the ball. Its weird, like Carlos signed them all to play wingers and then changed his mind. Look at how much Liverpool cross the ball, especially from Robertson and TAA. We don't have that quality but it would be nice to see some aggressive full backs getting beyond their defence to cross from their box instead of lumping it in from near the half way line. Palmer to his credit does do this and if his final ball was better he would be a very good attacking full back. Fox has a good cross on him but looks like hes running with a dump in his shorts, no pace means you can't get further up the pitch to use that crossing ability effectively.

I reckon we'll get a couple of top flight loanees before the window closes. My guess would be Fosu-Mensah and Brewster on loan from Man U and Liverpool, or someone similar. Plus I've got a feeling we might make one fairly big signing near the deadline, regardless of whether we sell anyone or not, before the big rebuild in the summer.

Hoping Bruce can bag some Man Utd youngsters, couple of full backs.

Think they sent him back or he was recalled.

He's apparently being recalled by Man U. Quite a few top flight loanees in the Championship and in the top flight are returning to their parent clubs lately. In order to join other clubs on loan. Due to a lack of games.

I’d like to see us ship out Reach for decent money and bring in 2 rapid wing backs. 

 

Next season I think Bruce will go with fletcher and Rhodes up front. 

 

Middle of the park will be Bannan, Hutch and forestieri. 3 at the back and wing backs. 

 

 

 

 

Maybe back to 4-4-2 with reach back out on the left and bring in a wide right sided player /Winger ?

We still need a real nutter in the middle and a much better right back.

I know I will be shot down on this but just don't rate Fosu-Mensah. Whenever I've seen him playing for Fulham this season he seems out of his depth and a sending off waiting to happen. But that's just my view.

Not just yours, I’ve felt the same when I’ve seen him, but he’s rated by better judges than us, so maybe we’ve just caught him on a bad day. All in all, I’d be happy to see him arrive
