How many will we sign?

by CountryRoyal » 31 Aug 2017 05:10

Before the window SLAMS shut.

I'm going for 0, not for a want of trying however. It just seems that two of our main 3 targets are currently at clubs with little other options and Hugill is going to go for way over what he's worth.

I think we will sign a striker, on loan, but it will be none of our current targets.

I rdon't cmon we'll end the day on a negative number. A couple out and maybe one in.
Quinn on loan, Weiser departs somewhere or even just contract cancelled. Can't see any other obvious departures although if Harriott was fit I'd loan him until January to get him back match fit.

1. Not too bothered about a striker but would like a cb, maybe on loan to cover for ilori and mcshanes inevitable injuries

reckon 1 in on loan. Quinn and Weiser to depart, Quinn on loan. Couple of the young lads on loan as well - Rinomhota, Smith. Prob keep Axel to cover

See Brentford have accepted a 6m bid for Jota. Surprised if he chooses there as his best option

£6m for Jota is an absolute joke, one of the best players in the league

If I was a Brentford fan I'd be furious

Brentford appear to be in a bit of trouble financially. The plans for their new ground have been scaled back quite significantly and their owner has been talking about cutting back on financial risks. Suspect the sale may be somewhat forced, but given they sold Hogan for a decent sum not that long ago they must be a bit concerned.

I'm really hoping this time we finally get Ian Royal. Every transfer window that goes by without us securing his arrival is a crushing blow and I can't take too many more of those.

Selling Dave Royal was more of a crushing blow methinks.

Priceless from GR, isn`t he already at Norwich?

Norwich City have been linked with a deadline day move for Derby County striker Cameron Jerome.
However, they will reportedly need to fork out £3 million for the 31-year-old forward.

Got a feeling it's going to be one of those classic Reading deadline days where we try our hardest but don't manage to get any in. Obviously we need a striker so that's going to be a shame if we can't get one in, but rest of the squad looks good. I've gone for a vote of 1 in the hope we do snag a striker.

I don't think we're desparate for a striker - we tend to play with one up top, and Bodvarsson has looked good there with Kermorgant coming back soon as well.

Would be good if we can get one in but not the end of the world if we don't.

Voted 1 but more in hope than expectation.

I don't understand the people that have elsewhere said they are happy to go without.

If you think we can maintain a sustained promotion push with what we've got then fair enough, id like some of what you're smoking but I think it's imperative we get a striker in with a good goal scoring record. There's no telling when Kermorgant will actually get back and with his age will he be the same player he was before? I think we have enough goals in the team to get by, but it won't be sufficient if we harbour hopes of a promotion challenge imho.

Think it will be 0 - but expect a loan signing instead.
