Three in

Lyle Taylor, Sam Field and Josh Cullen back in the match day squad for Fulham. Sorry about the clickbait, but everyone’s getting a bit needy around here. 🤷‍♂️

Zero transfer news. Sorry. Log off now if you have to. Maybe the midfielder from Rangers. Less substantiated are Lockyer’s ex-team mates from Bristol Rovers. Striker Johnson Clarke Harris and midfielder Ollie Clarke who took over the armband from our Welshman. Then there’s the soap opera that is becoming Marcus Maddison.

And that’s about that on the jungle drums but Gallen and Bowyer have always done a very good job of keeping targets and potential signings very close to their chest. Andre Green being the most recent example.

Anyways if Taylor, Field and Cullen return to the squad tomorrow it will be like three new signings. Cullen we have missed massively since the middle of November. Field, who I liked a lot, gives us big options as well, and then Taylor, well we need the lad back, his head as well.

Bristol City recently offered us ex-Addick Casey Palmer in exchange for Lyle Taylor. Ridiculous according to Bowyer.

Chuks Aneke scored a hat trick for the U23’s on Saturday and Erhun Oztumer banked thirty minutes at Deepdale. Chris Solly was taken ill before the Preston game, hence why we were one short on the bench but he will also be considered for tomorrow. We need new players, but we also need our existing fit and firing.

This has been a painful transfer window, although aren’t they all, but even more exasperating because of added expectation that ESI have brought. Matt Southall = great communicator or over promiser? The jury’s out.

But, please read this excellent article on some of the headwinds they are facing.

  1. I think most people understand that it is difficult to do business in the January transfer window and it’s not as if other all Championship clubs are bringing in masses of players.

    What is more worrying for me is the Lee Bowyer (and team) contract situation, especially if this is a genuine reason why players we enter talks with don’t sign. I hope we’re not stuck in a catch 22 with Bowyer waiting to see how he’s backed in the transfer market but players not signing because they don’t know if he’ll be manager next season.
