Just as important is that the rivals above us don't buy anything that makes a real difference.

Would everyone be happy with the window if no signings were made today?

We are still desperate for better fullbacks

Carter-Vickers weren't we linked to him? gone to Luton on loan not sure why i think that's a strange move?

He's probably out of his depth even there, really poor player.

Yes. If no one of any note leaves either.

That said, I don’t think it’ll happen and we will surely get a loan in, otherwise why pay out early for Bobby Reid if not to free up the loan space?

The squad we have is good enough provided Mitro, Kamara, Knockaert and Kebano return from injury within one or two games, plus a fully fit in three to five games; else we need to give up on automatic promotion or get Jota. Even if we are just going for playoffs, we will at least get a loan in but maybe just a true championship squad player to cover Kebano and Kamara (eg Woodrows standard).

We can cover the full backs but we really need a Glenn Murray to get us over the line. For me AK is not a top class finisher. Too much hangs on Mitro. Look, for example at Brentford's spread of scorers. Watkins is top man but has great support

Not a rumour we are linked with, but £8m for Wanyama from Spurs would be a steal in today’s market. Imagine a spine of Rodak, Hector, Wanyama, Mitro 🙀

Oh I agree! I’m really hoping for Jota to be honest as it may take the above a few games to get up to speed even once they’re back. Sabaly too would be superb.

Just meant, it’s been a good window already. I wouldn’t be up in arms and moaning if the deals feel through and no one came in. Here’s hoping!

He may not be a top class finisher (kind of subjective I guess), but he has scored a goal every 209 minutes on the pitch in his Fulham career, even though he often has played as a winger. That would translate to almost a 20 goal season if he played 46 full games. Not too shabby in my opinion.

For comparison, Mitrovic has scored every 179 minutes.

If we only look at the Championship (which may be more relevant) Kamara has a very decent record of a goal every 182 minutes, which would put him at at roughly a 23 goal pace if he played a full season.

Again, for comparison, Mitrovic has a goal every 123 minutes for Fulham in the Championship (falls to a goal every 142 minutes if we count his Newcastle days), which is of course remarkably good and maybe not a standard for which we should hold our back up striker that often plays on the wing instead.

Lastly, if I read the available stats correctly, Kamara has scored a goal every 118 minutes when playing as a centre forward for Fulham in the Championship. That is actually superior to Mitrovic in terms on goals mer minutes, albeit from a smaller sample size.

So the stats point to Kamara being more than good enough as a back up striker in the current situation (he is likely good enough as a starter in almost every other Championship team). Stats of course don't paint a complete picture, but it can be helpful in mitigating potential bias in opinions.

We should loan a player that gets at least 400 minutes for the rest of the season, I don’t see any centre forward getting more than a game or two plus a few subs. I think Jota will play 400 minutes; the next four games until Knockaert is full fit and 25 minutes every game after that.

We really don't want to see any of those bargain basement last minute half fit loan signings coming in today. All that we really need is a proven goalscorer to take the weight of Mitro.  A good goalscorer would have to be better than Kamara and would cost a lot of money and it is not going to happen so we had best settle for what we have.

Competion for places on the bench is already strong so no more benchwarmers please.
