|Ricky Holmes has signed for Sheff UTD|

Charlton winger Ricky Holmes has signed for the blunts on a 2 and a half year deal.
400k isn't a bad price for him. Remember he ran rings round us in the pre season thrashing in the summer. 1 of the best players on the pitch that day if I remember rightly?

Evans is clearly not investing enough money to make a genuine push for promotion, be it via the play offs or automatic promotion.
He seems, after 10 years of ownership happy to tread water in the championship and gives McCarthy, an experienced manager who clearly divides opinion, but someone who has perhaps learnt the trust of Evans to spend a sensible amount of cash. Not saying spend at the levels of Wolves or Derby, Derby have spent big for the last 4-5 season's and it is now only just coming to fruition.
When Mick says in his post match press conference that he won't be buying any players in the Jan window, it looks like loan deals and free transfers again, when we've had a half decent season. Injuries have now hit big style and it's not only the 1st XI but the bench, Evans is not giving us a realistic chance of being able to challenge for promotion.
Mick is seemingly happy to tow the Evans strategy, as he always mentions the fact he "knew the gig" when he was appointed. He's also got it cushty, as he's prob on a good contract and doesn't receive interference from above. Why does Mick not put more pressure on Evans to back him more with funds? Billy Davies was forever whinging about needing more funds, despite the fact he was backed fairly well.
All too comfortable at ITFC. Anyway here's to 2018. Happy new year to you all
