That's not good at all. Personally, I think Roberts will be back and we will sign another winger or creative midfielder. Add that to Sanogo and that's what we'll get in attack.

Considering we haven’t signed a single creative midfielder since Gaston Ramirez left I think your best bet is to lower your expectation

Yeah i think one winger and a striker is the best we can hope for in those advanced positions - warnock has made it very clear he was happy with our wide options.

You've said this a number of times, but when has he made this clear?

In Warnock teams which have gone up, what type of creative player has he had? In my head I want us to sign a CAM, but maybe Warnock sees the creativity from the wide areas instead?

I had a look but can't find the exact quote, but he said a couple of times at the end of the season that we are OK on the wings because of the young guys. And then he really emphasised the need to improve the spine in this interviews early in the window without even mentioning the wide positions.

He did sort of imply it. He mentioned the importance of the spine and that some of the young ones already at the club were exciting. I took it as @Neverbefore. I’d imagine though that if he gets the opportunity to add pace on the wings through a transfer deal he will take it.

Just had a look

QPR = Adel Taraabt

Cardiff = no standout CAM, but plenty of lw and rw options. (Pilkington, Mendez Laing, Hoilett) Hoilett was the top scorer with 9.

So maybe we won’t see again a creative midfielder as Warnock hasn’t really relied on that type of traditional CAM like a Gaston. He tends to go for box to box midfielders to get further forward whilst having wingers.

Not really anything that people will be surprised with in terms of his tactics, but  I would seem it very unlikely we would sign a creative player as a CAM. More likely to get the wingers from the Prem market as he has already identified. 
 

Roberts would be a good shout, but I have a feeling he will go elsewhere. Not sure which other wingers in the prem/championship would be surplus.

Regardless of if we sign Roberts we would still need another one. Ideally you need 2/3 solid creative players. We only seem to ever get one creative player which means that player is under so much pressure to create for the team and we're often rely to much on just one player.

Yep I agree. I just don't think we should expect it.

One short till gaston came in really - downing, adomah, gaston and even reach and stuani were enough for this level. In the premiership we were missing at least 2, maybe even 3.
