hopefully carlo spends the rest of this season trialing and testing this squad to see who fits in best where and then in august when we start again the players have got their head round his methods and he has a few of his own players brought in (similar to what brendan rogers done last year came in mid season and pushed on the next)

Agree2 Disagree0

I'd still like him to bring 2 or 3 players in this window. A RW, CM and CB.

13 Jan 2020 13:30:55
In and ideal world dentie yes, but as we all know options in jan are very tough, would you rather sign someone you're only half keen on in jan, or sign someone in the summer you are certain you want.

13 Jan 2020 15:59:59
Agree wblue, nothing to play for now. spend the rest of the season assessing what you have, and don't waste money in this window.

13 Jan 2020 16:19:28
disagree, especially with the run of next 3 fixtures i think 5-8th place is completely up for grabs if clubs want it! 6 points behind united with them going to anfield this sunday and still yet to come to goodison, all depends on if the team want to fight for a european place!

13 Jan 2020 17:38:31
Totally agree Wblue - 6th spot is still a possibility, loads to play for.
If we were to get European football with 6th (big if but still possible) we might be able to recruit even better in the summer with the lure of Thursday night football, admittedly not a big a draw as champions league but still a positive.
Plus it’d be good for the fans to hopefully have a few European games to attend.

So lots still to play for, and didn’t think I’d be saying this 4 weeks ago but here is a slim chance of a top 6 finish.

13 Jan 2020 17:38:39
Nothing to play for now?
I'd get teletext on when you get home and check the league table and maybe your maths. EVERYTHING to play for.

13 Jan 2020 17:43:24
Europe next season is still very much an option, so many clubs bunched together. I guess it will show which clubs and their players have the most desire and spirit to fight for it. I'm on the side of not buying in January, overpaying for clubs unwanted players is not going to help us really. Keep the pennies and buy smart in the summer i say.

13 Jan 2020 18:07:58
Trialing players - they have been playing week in week out. We are not 11th by chance.
No need a trial to tell me kean, Keane, Naisse, hollgate, schniderlin, Sigs, Walcott, Beni are not good enough.
Iwobi might also be in there soon enough.

Weather it’s Jan or summer we need better players.
3 in jan And 3 in summer.

13 Jan 2020 18:16:14
Take your blue glasses of boys, we are not that good, and bringing players in now won't work, I mean it hasn't in the past has it. We will do well to finish top ten based on what I have been watching. we have a very bloated squad, and the priority right now should be on sorting that out, not adding to it.

13 Jan 2020 18:19:59
Keep the money until summer, maybe a loan signing, but I would be happy if we managed to offload some players and then focus in the Summer with players coming in.

13 Jan 2020 18:37:51
Bit pessimistic that Brassington.
We’re currently 4 points off sixth place.
Carlo has managed 9pts from a possible 12.
Apart from Liverpool, Man City and Leicester the rest of the top half of the table appear to all be in disarray and struggling to string results together.
Arsenal - new manager needs to settle
spurs in transition and now lost kane to injury
Sheff Utd doing well but probably hit a bad patch at some point
Chelsea and Man Utd hit and miss.

Not blue tinted glasses just nice to have a bit of positivity for a change, less than 6 weeks ago we were all talking about relegation.

If we can keep up the momentum you never know we could get top 6.

Surely it’s better that we’re finally looking up in more ways than one!

13 Jan 2020 18:50:14
Agree Brass, bringing more players into an already bloated squad is not the answer. We are where we are for a reason. We are not very good.
As for trialing players, how many u23s have you seen this season sobs?

13 Jan 2020 18:54:34
I don't see why we should spend more in Jan unless for a special player. I believe the squad with regular rotation is capable of 6th to 8th place with luck. At the end of the season have a list of who is going and, after the euros, a list of players who we want. If players are told now they are at risk, then it is up to them to put themselves in the shop window for prospective employers. You don't get bought if you are not performing. We still need the squad to come round to Carlos style of football. You never know some might actually take to it and improve. That's my take on it anyway.

13 Jan 2020 20:25:11
Are we really up for writing off another year? I'd go get your heads checked out. Madness! 2 or 3 players are a must this window. And then we can have a proper popat a strong finish. If we manage to get in a euro spot, our summer transfer policy will be all the healthier to attract better players. 16 games left and 6 point gap and people are saying its all over and may as well sit on our hands until summer? Thankfully you don't run this club, unbelievable pessimism.

13 Jan 2020 20:45:38
Spot on toffeeapple1. The pessimism is unreal on here.

13 Jan 2020 20:55:38
The white flags are out with a third of the season left. Posters on this site never fail to impress me with their doom and gloom.

13 Jan 2020 22:27:35
Wow so some of you moan about the players giving up but look at some of your statements above! 🤦🏻‍♂️
We had 14 points from our first 15 games under Silva, we’ve gained 14 under 7 games with Dunc and now Ancelotti, is that not a reason to be optimistic? And that’s without adding any new faces!

13 Jan 2020 23:48:02
Go back twelve months and the messages on here would be a mirror image of now. Not agreeing with you guys doesn’t make me a pessimists rather a realist. We might be six points behind but it is highly unlikely that we will win all our games, while those above us lose all theirs. And don’t forget we are only seven points from the relegation zone.
Now I would love to be proved wrong, and would be more than happy to eat lots of humble pie. But I just can’t see it happening. Remember who be bought last January, hows that worked out?

14 Jan 2020 00:46:20
It's not pessimistic to advocate not signing players in Jan - the window where clubs mug off desperate clubs for hugely inflated prices. We can absolutely chase a Euro spot but not at the expense of more overpaid squad fillers who want a paycheck but don't put a shift in for us. Unless a real quality player is available then signing someone just for of it is a stupid move which will only impact what we can then spend in summer.

14 Jan 2020 08:12:24
I'm happy to leave it to CA and MB to decide whether and who we buy this month. I'd like to see a couple in to strengthen the team and to give us all a lift but if they don't see the right players then leave it until the summer
Obviously I want us to finish as high as we possibly can but I don't think it is the right time to add pressure onto the 2 of them. It feels like some of our supporters have more hot and cold mood swings than menopausal women - we're rubbish - no we should finish top 6
Don't write the season off but also don't get too optimistic. Let CA get to know the squad, let some of our injured return and let MB cull a few more of the non playing contingent and hopefully pull a couple of rabbits out of the hat
I'd absolutely love it if we finished in the European places but even if we don't I look forward to the future and a full season under CA next year

14 Jan 2020 08:41:52
we're not that bad, we're a side adjusting to a new manager, who has still grinded out 3 wins out of four in the premier league, the only loss being the reigning champions away. above us is hit and miss and if you look at the fixture list for all the teams above us and ours, if we somehow manage to win all three (west ham (A) Newcastle (H) Watford (A) ) we'd e right in the mix and potentially sat between 5th-8th
why so doom and gloom we're 6 points behind united in fifth who still have to come to goodison and travel to anfield on sunday!

14 Jan 2020 09:36:42
It's in there nature we could win every game from now and someone would still moan.
We have a significant managerial appointment and my point above already proven.
Look at our 2 last January signings not confidence inspiring in buying this time of year.

14 Jan 2020 11:29:07
Palace are paying all of Tosuns wages and paid a £1 million loan fee, if we can get a few more deals out or off the pay roll it will go a long way to Putting us in good stead for the summer.

We have way too many on decent wages that are past their best and need shipping out.

A good transfer for me would be managing to ship players out.

14 Jan 2020 11:55:29
If CA wants specific players in Jan and we can get them then why not If we can't get exactly who he wants then why not look to the loan market. We have done quite well with loans over the last couple of seasons. For those guys that think six points may not be doable the way I look at it is if we beat all the teams above us then we will gain 3 of those six points straight away. Now if you then think 3 points is too much of a gap then I can't help with that. let's be positive and get behind the boys even it we don't think they should be there. COYB.

14 Jan 2020 19:29:19
We didn't buy anyone last January did we?
Don't expect anyone this january either. Let's get our injured players back and take it from there.
