Yeah can't see it unless we offered like 40 million 

West Ham spent £30m on Zouma only this summer so cant see them making a big money CB signing.

Ogbonna who was Zouma defensive partner suffered a season ending injury so i can well see them wanting another CB so they have 4 again (Zouma, Diop and Dawson current 3). But think that will be a loan or a cheap deal. They link to Ben Davies of Liverpool makes more sense for that reason

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Got to say credit where credit is due, I’m hugely impressed with the business we have done so far. The fact that other clubs were willing to pay a higher percentage of Flo’s wages but we were the

Talking of GKs what do people think of a 6 month loan deal for Tom Heaton? Currently 3rd choice at Utd. He is 35 now but still a very able GK at this level I would imagine.

I'd rather we signed a permanent keeper tbh but yeah, he's better than anyone we currently have.

Had no idea Heaton was that old. Would be great but he's probably on an absolute packet at United for 3rd choice keeper so not sure why they'd loan us him and continue to pay his wages? Not like he's a promising kid needing experience.

Do we think Jones is going to make the RWB spot his own or do we bring someone in? He's had some good games and is lightning quick, but isn't the strongest player. I could forgive Wilder for bringing in someone new for the role, send Hernadez back and allow Jones to battle for both the RWB spot and the more attacking roles. Get Spence back instead of Hernandez would be a decent switch. I don't really rate Hernadez. Plenty of skill on the ball but no real end product. 

Out: 2 of the keepers, Hernandez, Uche

In: Stiker, RWB, Keeper

Open question to the forum

Who would you expect to see leave in January?

Who would you want to see leave in January?

Who would you expect to see leave in January?

Hall, Hernandez, Stojanovic

Who would you want to see leave in January?

Hall, Hernandez, Stojanovic, Lumley, Uche, Browne (perm.)

Players I want to see leave in January are players that I just don't think suit our style of play anymore, so I just think we should cash in and give Wilder more room to get the players he does want.

In: Spence, Balogun, first-choice keeper, LWB competition, LCB competition

Out: Hernandez, Uche, one of the keepers 

Seen some saying Browne out on loan, but I think he'd be good as cover in the forward roles. Better than Hernandez and Uche anyway - who aren't bad but were signed to play in a front 3 which we'll probably never use again.

Stoj, Hall, Uche with possibly JLS and Hernandez loans terminated. Browne on loan.

Who would you want to see leave in January?

Josh on loan. I don’t think he will get a look in under Wilder.

Expect Dejan, Lumley, Hall, Uche, Lea Siliki

I want those to move on too alongside Hernandez, but I expect Hernandez to stay as he brings a bit of pace and trickery and as he's not our player it won't be so bad for us leaving him on the bench.

We'll have to see how he progresses through the season, he was one of our better players on Saturday but Spence isn't particularly strong either.

I think Jones seems to have a bit more trickery about him than Spence too.

I'd be recalling Spence and having them battle it out for the shirt, but I doubt Spence will fancy that, might be better off selling and reinvesting.

One thing I noticed about Lumley at half time against Swansea is that he looks like a good player with the ball at his feet. Can’t remember who it was playing long balls to him but he was bringing the ball down without it touching the floor, couple of kick ups and then spraying it 40 yards to the players feet without him having to move. It wasn’t just once either it was for the full half time period. Not saying this makes him a good keeper but It definitely shocked me. After seeing that I’d like to see him get a chance under wilder. But agree with most that we need a new no 1.

I’d like to see Spence come back and compete with Jones for the RWB slot. 
 

Id get rid of Uche and probably prefer to use Coburn from the bench as an option. I’m not even that convinced we need an additional striker in all honesty. We have a good option here on the bench with Coburn who is rather use to gain some experience. 
 

JLS and Stoj are a wasted squad place. 
 

Uche and Hernandez don’t fit our system in my opinion. 
 

I honestly don’t see the fixation with Tav and would probably cash in 🤷🏻‍♂️ I realise that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I just don’t think he’s all that good. If he played for another team I wouldn’t be overly worried if he played against us.

When Wilder came in I thought RWB was a priority and that Jones was a stop gap, more of an attacking winger than a Wingback. But he's put in some monster performances, Saturday he made 6 tackles and is averaging 2.6 tackles per 90. I worry if we bring Spence back in January it might stunt either one of those players trajectory. I thought Jones would be a liability but he's proven anything but, whilst also showing the propensity to improve at RWB.

    • Thanks for the welcome. No idea where you get Colchester from (lol), live just outside Stokesley, 20 minutes from the Riverside Stadium.
    • Surely the club are going to have to come out and clarify their position on this Derby issue at some point very soon...? Derby fans are (understandably) going to fight tooth and nail to save their club, and at the moment they're controlling the narrative around the whole thing. I worry we will soon be painted as villains in the media, 'trying to liquidate a club meaning a town loses its football team and people lose their jobs etc.' To be clear I'm not saying it's as black and white as that - but that's the story that's being painted on social media with petitions etc, and calls for MPs to get involved. February 12th has the potential to kick off massively when they visit the Riverside and I'm concerned this whole debacle is going to start detracting from what Boro should be getting discussed for - a great turnaround in form and a genuine shot at going up. If Gibson doesn't have a rock solid defence of what's going on I'd rather we just dropped it and focussed on the football. 
    • Welcome to the forum and wow straight in I must say. You have a long way to travel looking at your IP address? States you are in Colchester hope you are going to post more so that others can get to know you!
    • New member but long time reader. Signed up because of this so put us down for two - STHolders, West stand.
    • I agree...Taylor is solid at that LWB position, but if we had someone with a bit more explosiveness on that side of the field, then we would have threats everywhere. A fit Bola might give us that???
