    Can't wait to see the new boys on action and the deadweight gone will have sent a sharp message to those remaining.

    Probably as good a January window as you could realistically expect.

    Four players out that were never likely to get any game time under Conte, with three of them seriously underperforming whenever they played too.

    Two new faces in, players who fit the manager's system and that he also knows from earlier.

    Trusting Conte's judgement on those two, we're in a much better position now in our fight for fourth - plus it's a foundation for more strengthening in the summer.

    I think you could also see Bergwijn/Moura left if needed, and Son up top. Or Berg up top.

    I’m surprised to see so many saying they would have liked a 2nd striker or thought we might sign one.

    As soon as Conte opened his mouth last week and said Stevie can play striker I pretty much knew that was that (when you also add in Son’s previous).

    I really like the front 5. As long as at least 3 of them can be fit at any one time then I think we should be fine. And with all 5 fit we finally have some decent attacking players on the bench.

    We just need top 4 now, so Conte can get any long term 'premium' targets in the summer.

    But still missing a centre forward. Really hope that doesn’t come back to bite us but fear it will.

    we still lack the option of a big no9.

    Arsenal and West Ham were both looking for a first choice starter in that position and got nothing.

    Makes you wonder why they didn’t go for Weighorst?

    Possibly because we couldn't offer him game time, quality crosses, or big wages. Burnley could manage two out of three.

    Like you say, Royal can still learn. However, I do think it's harder to turn a defensive player into an attacking one than the other way round. Once Romero's fit again I think we'll see a more solid defence, perhaps one that could cover for having Moura (or whoever) at RWB against the bus parkers.

    I assume we can still work on Bosmans outside the window as the are pre contract agreements

    Doesn’t matter what we offer Fulham, his contract is up in the summer.

    Isn’t he an anti-vaxer as well. Teams playing or think they will be playing in Europe likely to be adverse to buying a player who isn’t vaccinated, I don’t know for fact he hasn’t got the vaccine. As at least for the next couple of years most countries will have some sort of access policy with at least a few meaning vaccines.

    We've had the first half of a season with Kane at possibly the worst we've seen him.
    The expectation has to be there'll be stronger output from him in the latter half.

    If he does not improve we should bin him off to Birmingham and bring in someone who will do the job.

    Yeah gotta trust they fit Conte's vision, which is one of the best in the world.
