It is going to be quiet for quite for some with very little to publish because of the Coronavirus, so I thought I’d ask our members for their views on our January signings.
Here’s what sedgleyimp said:
We will still be fine if this season starts again. If games are played you’ve still got many teams below us playing each other so points to be lost by most.
The January signings, on the whole, have been good when you consider the majority were with more than half an eye on next season. Bar Bridcutt they are all young so expecting them to be the finished article now just isn’t fair.
The potential of Scully has been apparent since his first substitute appearance and he will be a big player for us next season and hopefully beyond. Same with Edun who I think will be our best central midfielder next season with his energy.
Hopper showed last week what he can offer and if that is maintained he will be a proper player.
Coventry has shown flashes of what he’s capable of though games can pass him by. You can see though why West Ham rate him as a prospect.
Elbouzedi and Melbourne haven’t had many chances as yet to really show what they’ve got and supporters can’t say anything about Andrews Eyoma or Hinds as no game time for any of them.
Finally, Bridcutt has shown why he’s played at higher levels before. It would be a tremendous coup for us if he signs a two year deal with us once his Forest deal expires but I’d expect a lower Championship team to snap him up.
So overall and based only on a handful of games that was a very productive window for the club in my opinion when you think about players coming into the club with eyes on the future.
Of those that departed, I think only really Toffolo has done well at his new club. Andrade and O’Connor seem to have fallen foul of Salford’s buying and not playing policy. Akinde doing fine at Gills I suppose.
