Well with a month or so to go before the January transfer window opens I am slowly getting anxious as to whom we might be interested and what our approach to the transfer window will be like. As of right now to me our team looks and plays phenomenal and personally I really wouldn't want to integrate to many new players.
Everyone knows defense is our number one concerned especially with the injuries and aging players we have I would like that issue to be solved with either Samba or Cahill as we could try to snatch on the cheap in 5Mil - 10Mil and only have them integrate into the team.
Obviously that isn't our only concern since come season end Adebayor will probably go back to Shiteh and we will be left with Defoe and Pav with Pav likely to leave in January that would leave us with one striker. My hopeful approach to this issue would be going back after Rossi I know he is out for the season and with his contract running out at the end of the season I can see Villarreal a being allot more open to price negotiations and it would show him that we are truly committed to him and that we are big step up especially if we continue to play like we have and get CL football next year.
I would have the same approach with another position and that is is our right wing since we really only have Lennon playing and GdS who isn't fancied much by Harry we are the thinnest there. I would got after another injured player in Farfan especially since he has been already touted by the club who is open to selling him in January.
I think the positives of both Rossi and Farfan joining us in the off season instead of of January far out weight the negatives even if they would be fit. From adjusting to the new league to the pressure to automatically perform which could carry into the next season, which I now call Torres Phenomenon. In the mean while they would greatly benefit from gelling with the players in the off season and make the transition as smooth as possible. Add to that the cost for which we would be getting these players and to me it seems like a win-win situation since we strengthened our positions and saved a considerable amount of money.
These are just some thoughts that I had it would be nice to hear what your guys thoughts on the upcoming window is and what you guys would do.
