I have a bad feeling we won't sign anyone until the summer.

No shiny new signings? 🙁

We rarely sign anybody in January so it would surprise me if we did get anyone.

There is the numbers in the financial year to consider. Accountants wouldn’t want us to spend in January and make the year end numbers at June look bad for investors.

Red man anyone would think you don't like the owners.

Who can we sign in January who'll win us the league this season?

Who can we sign who'll win us the UCl in January who isn't already cup-tied?

No one, as we are seeing atm if you sign someone in January you pay even more over the odds than you do in the summer.

Literally the only reason to sign someone in January is to give the fans something to cheer about. But the truth is January signings rarely make a significant impact for the rest of the season while costing significantly more than they would if signed in the summer instead.

If it was tight between us and City for the title then I could understand trying to sign someone to help push us over the line ahead of them. But as it stands we would need to win every game between now and the summer while hoping City drop 15 points which equates to five loses for a team yet to lose. It's just not going to happen.

So why waste money on a pointless signing now?

I wonder how much impact Sanchez would have at City? Or at us.

January signings are rare but when we've made them (Vidic, Evra, Mata, Saha and Forlan) they've generally turned out alright, but some needed half a season to settle in.

Accountants aside, the latter half of this season would be a good time to bed in a new signing or two as no-one is catching City.

I'd love us to sign Sanchez but fear he'll likely be the icing on the cake for City.

I think Sanchez is City bound but as an example it shows there is or can be “value” in the January market plus he isn’t cup tied in FA or UCL

Another example of smart work by City sadly

Barca wasted money in January of course

Meanwhile at OT we announce our next new sponsor/ partner , yay.

Id laugh if Sanchez turned out to be the Tino Asprilla on the cake.
