    Hopefully Tony and the staff have been looking for scoring help, and ready to make a move earlier rather then the end of January and that’s because of the schedule:

    Next 6 thru the end of Jan (excluding FA Cup w/QPR); Spurs, Burnley (obviously no help for those 2), but then Scum & ManUre on the 15th & 20th, and 2 HUGE 6 pointers w/Brighton & Brom to finish Jan. We wait till the last 48 hours and our fate could be sealed. We have to get some goals early in the window.

    If ever there was a time to strike a deal early in the window this is it.

    Proven scorers are expensive, and not likely to be made available on loan unless they're going through a dry spell, and we don't want that. It'll be tough to get something better than what we have. I hope we do, but we should be prepared for the eventuality no one joins. If we do get an addition, I don't think it's likely he comes from a Big 5-league team. For example, I'm intrigued by Patson Daka from Red Bull Salzburg who picked up where Erling Haaland left off for them, but we'd need to drop someone else from the 25 to accommodate anyone new. Or we reach into the Championship, but would anyone from there be an improvement?

    I don't have the U23 and U18 stats at my fingertips -- is there a young player at the club who could step up like Tammy Abraham has at Chelsea? Carvalho? Tiehi? Stansfield? Etc.?

    I'm curious what Parker will do with the 25-player Prem list in January. Dropping Le Marchand and adding Josh Onomah is a no-brainer, and I hope he does that.

    Abraham wasn't an unknown quantity. He was a successful scorer in the Championship.

    Hey! Don't we have his twin brother on our books?

    A few weeks ago, The Undead were talking about letting Giroud go and I thought, "Here's a guy who can score and also light a fire under Mitro." Then he scored about 19 goals in a European match. We'll never get him now.

    Somewhere there's an Erik Nevland lurking in the shadows...Fulham needs to find him.

    The thought of Tony being in charge, and him thinking he knows what he’s doing makes me cringe. Of course there is no movement, we can’t even manage to offload Seri yet. The typical last 24 hours, where we screw up and not finish the paperwork on a player that would help
    seems like the likely conclusion of a crucial window...sigh
