It hard to look at the table and see we are still in with a great chance of top four, our season has been so poor, but, and its a big but (and l can not lie) if we can get in two first team midfielders and with the injuries back in Feb we could do it. Surely the club understands not only money but attracting players when you have the Champions League is so important. Any sustained consistent run will get top four.

Yeah Redcon, our rivals are dropping points consistently as well.
2-3 good signings in this window will boost our chance to genuinely place in the top 4.

I think every team in contention for 4th will be saying the same thing. Unfortunately we havnt been consistent for a long time. Chelsea will buy this window. Arteta is getting more out of Arsenal but I think they'll fall short. Jose at Spurs are like ourselves with the topsy turvy results and Kane out is a big problem.

One spot up for grabs in my opinion and we have 4 teams that could get it. We'll know more when the window ends but I don't think we have enough compared to the other teams.

If we bought two solid midfielders, ie class players who would walk into the first team, then I think we would have a very good chance of obtaining 4th.

Our front 3 are pretty good, they just need better service, and with a decent midfield the defence would be ender far less pressure and I think is sufficient.

The only risk is those two new midfielders not settling quick enough, but it would certainly improve our chances.

This is one of the most frustrating things. In spite of how poor we've been, we're still somehow in the running, and if we just committed some funds to pushing on we have enough to ensure top 4 and champions league.

I think it would also be reasonable to give Ole the rest of the year with those two extra midfielders to see what he can do. Whatever your thoughts on him, you can't deny he is being given a tough ask to get top 4 with that midfield.

So the plan should be two midfielder starters in January, give Ole the rest of the season, and if he demonstrates some kind of management ability that we so far haven't seen then he has a right to keep his job, but if he doesn't then he can be replaced.

Thsre seems very little risk in backing him in the market for positions that we are so very lacking in. I wouldn't be allowing him to sell top players and replace with his preferences, but strengthening where we are so obviously weak seems a no brainer.

Chelsea and spurs will be thinking the exact same thing though.

If chelsea can add a quality defender and experienced attacker to their ranks to support their promising youngsters theyw ill make top 4

If spurs can buy a striker and a competent full back they are right in it as well.

Are we really going to get two class players in jan, doubt it very much.

Just stick with ole until the summer and bring pochetino in if possible and give him all the funds possible to have at his disposable i say.

We have won 4 of our last 5 league games and scored 12 goals.
Which is a breath of fresh air after last year, especially after watching spurs yesterday .
Rash just knocked in his 19th of the season, not that long ago he was getting stick.
We have made a step in the right direction this season, could do with a bit of luck with injuries and a couple of clever additions, like we did in the summer . But on the whole moving in the right direction.

Two months ago people were saying they would bet their house on him never scoring 20 goals in a season.

Wonder where they are now? šŸ˜‚.

Nowhere shappy, he is different gravy. Looking forward to hopefully strengthening the team and of course a proper coach being in place. His aptitude is great and will continue to improve.

Shappy as always just move on to someone else.

Also good to see James high up on the assists table. Heā€™s done really well this season but needs a break and some more help. Good to see a transfer like this one arrive at the club.

Jred. I'd look back up the last 5 or 6 games. We certainly havnt won 4 out of 5 of our last league games. Drew with Everton, lost to Watford, beat Newcastle and Burnley, lost to Arsenal and beat Norwich. Sandwiched in between those results is a draw against Wolves and a loss to City.

A few very positive performances in that run but also a few woeful ones. We're still 2 steps forward, 2 steps back.

Mumbles yes made a mistake with the watford game so its 3 out of the last 5 whoops, but I also didn't mention beating city and spurs in the league.
For some reason people don't want to talk about the fact we beat both city and spurs in the league?

At the moment it is ole it was rashford it was martial the same people will just choose someone else to slag of. It's all they post
Is it a coincidence that you only went back as far as the everton game , think city and spurs where the 2 games before that . Nobody ever wants to talk about the positives tho .
Each to there own tho people use the site for different things most at the moment just use it to slag players etc off . Only 5th in the league in all the cups I suppose some feel that is awful and they are entitled to more .
Makes for a poor read tho imo, personally I'm happy with the direction we have taken, each to there won tho .

jered funny how you only come out when we win. did you see what pep did to us in the cup the other night. a decent manager looks at his mistakes. and then gave us a tanking. let's not forget we played norwich spelling hey.
