Hearing a couple of strikers are available for loan in Jan. Remy and Naismith to name a couple. Anybody know of any truth in this as I would expect us to pounce at a half season loan of a goalscorer like these! Especially if we have overspent in the summer and will end up making a huge loss this year.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Remy directly, but clubs in France have commented that he is available and they are trying to sign him. I do know for sure, rather than via secondhand info, that Naismith is looking for a move that will ensure him regular first team football. He knows he is not really Martinez's type of player.}

Thanks Ed, Naismith would be a great addition to the strike force temporarily, I think its a very smart move trying for him on loan in Jan. Will bag at least a couple of match winners for sure! The AC can be utilised as that all important impact sub that he has proven to be

We already have out quota of loan players 2 and you can only loan one player from one club we have Moses.
With mourino being sacked any new manager will want to have look at the team before letting anyone go.
Plus we need to shift players because we are on the threshold of the ffp wage limit if we wish to recruit any buys would have to be funded by sales.
Selling either obrien or Collins in the Jan transfer window would free up wages but would bring in very little inregards to transfer fees and it may well leave us short of cover.
I would look to cash in on Andy Carroll 8-10 mill and one of the dm either noble or obiang 6-8 mill plus wages saves.

In reality we have no money available and no available loan spots. Even if we sell Collins and JOB we won't have funds required for the people we are talking about. We need to work with the guys we've got - and they have what it takes thanks to our fantastic off season transfers.

Definitely need to loan a striker in Jan there is no doubt about it. All our goal scorers are injured and if they get injured again (all it takes is a couple of horrible challenges), we will be in the same slip slide position as the past month or so. Mark my words we will struggle to get top 10 without another goalscorer and that's not good enough
