...and it's a grave pity that we don't have a Chairman who, after having had the player brought in on loan through the course of this season, that he won't back that up by buying him (Lawrence). He's a player too, with irony, that might encourage too fans to renew their season tickets if he was bought. He's at least a player who gets you off your seat...

...if the club thinks we're mugs, with respect of this and of past transfer windows?
We've known all along that what we NEED is a striker. We've known it since Murphy left. We've, in addition, let go of Varney and Best won't be playing again.
And we've picked up no one in these 4-5 weeks of January who is going to guarantee us regular goals, which is we so desperately need.
We have 2 defenders, 2 midfielders and a non league forward.
We've also been played the card that 'serious' bids have been put in, for a host of players. When I see some of the purchases made in this window for fair money, and yet we're still singing the same song of, 'Yes, we've got big bids in for a host of players', and we have what we have though out of this window then I really do question the genuine intent by ITFC.
...but I have just got a sneaky suspicion that we're going to sign a striker before the deadline on Tuesday. I think MM just knows, and Christ I do hope so, that he knows he needs someone who can put the ball in the back of the net.
