Jacko said post match today we’re looking at bringing 2 more in before the deadline. Surely one is a striker

Surely a striker and either centre mid or right back.

Look forward to hearing news A.M. In terms of striker types there have been calls for a target man. Left field, but wondering whether any of our plethora of centre backs could do the target man job. Back in the day I recall Kenny Burns winning numerous honours as a striker having been converted from centre back.

Manny went up top for the final 10 mins on Sat @Higgy and we ended up scoring 2 goals! Not sure if he had any hand in them though :D Maybe we should get him a no.10 shirt that fits.

Firstly apologies for reposting my original quote....must have gone off in my hand.
Thanks for the info re the match and the use of Manny up top Ian. I suppose as a minimum he would have been a BIG presence to keep an eye on, which may have helped the cause albeit without a direct assist.
I was just thinking about the debate about which centre back might be moved on alongside calls for recruiting a target man and though voila! .....maybe that's the solution. Tactical genius.

Norwood is in court in December for drink driving... seems an odd one really.....
As he has been blighted by injury and not playing much, I wonder if he will be released by Ipswich if found guilty?

Put simply no, a lot of players have been done over the years but not been released by their clubs.

Yes I’ve heard this on a season long loan. Whether or not he is a defensive midfielder or attacking, do we need another one? I guess spearing is our only propert defensive midfielder.

Jacko said last week we were working on 2 deals so surely another one is a striker

Sounds like a good player yes though a bit of a strange signing to me as surely midfielders and attacking minded ones are the least of our concerns?
Does this mean CBT is off? Makes a lot more sense if he is.

It sounds like he could probably play as a defensive midfielder if necessary. But in any case, he is not a winger or striker and so could not be a replacement for CBT

We have only really got Spearing who can operate as a defensive midfielder, which I would guess is why he has been brought in.
