It's 23.00 Thursday 31 August...just in case anyone at Colchester United had forgotten.

As he is 20 years old and his preferred position is midfield he is not even close to be the answer to our defensive woes. If this is the sort of player we are looking at them I'm afraid the club's brains trust has lost the plot in a big way.

The silence concerning transfer activity for the U's is deafening.

A new striker in the next 24 hours would be encouraging at the very least.

Everyone else in League Two are signing players at the moment.

Perhaps we are waiting for Jim White on Transfer Deadline Day to make the announcement live on Sky that we have signed Mikael Forssell or James Beattie (wishful thinking) or waiting for an interview through the car window with Harry Redknapp at a car park somewhere!

Come on we need a name and within 23 hours.

Any frenetic activity at the WHCS - have the rotors been started on the Colchester helicopter.

I do hope that victories against FGR and the Royals have not affected our desire to bring in an experienced striker and defender.

We desperately need that experience to maintain momentum for the difficult games to come.

About 11 hours to go.

Not wishing to be pedantic, as if, but it's 13 hours to go so still plenty of time to sign the players most fans think we need.

Lots of activity elsewhere but Col I have yet to be mentioned on Sky Deadline Day 2017. I fear that may be the case at 23.00 too.

One thought has occured to me...perhaps the club will wait until the window closes and look to sign out of contract players.

All this smacks of desperation.

The best players have already signed the better players are in the process of signing that only just leaves the leftover players.

Can we yet bring in a striker

I am missing something here?

In my humble opinion midfield is NOT an area of concern.

Surely it is the areas of Centre Half and Centre Forward that need strengthening

TS I reckon with Slater out for some time JM wants to give Murray some support in Centre Midfield.

Hopefully we can sign Michael Smith from Pompey at 6ft 4ins and with a ratio of 4 games per 1 goal he offers some strength until Guthrie is fit.

Brandon Hanlan a striker from Charlton has signed on loan.

Youngster who has come through their Academy system.

This suggests that Smith is going elsewhere.

Another kid. This squad is crying out for experience. What are they playing at? Have they learnt nothing from the last few seasons?

Neither signing strikes me as an immediate starter and are other club's academy products really so much better than our own?

The U's may sign Michael Phillips a 19 year old from Crystal Palace.

Well plenty of signings but limited experience. Let us see how many are in the squad for the trip to Cambridge at the weekend.

Looking forward to your usual team predictions Durham......

Whoever plays, I think we are going to smash Cambridge. We are oozing confidence after Forest Green Rovers. OK, we only drew with Reading (before penalties), but we might have scored seven. If we keep making this many chances some must be converted.

Mandron is getting better with every game. Szmodics is proving class. Reid and KVY excellent. Find a wide replacement for Drey Wright and I reckon we will have a very effective strike force. Maybe Hanlon or Odelusi is that man until Dickeson is fit? Wright beats people but has little end product.

All of these signings make sense to me in my blue and white tinted specs. My guess is Loft and Slater are crocked for longer than we hope. So signing a loan midfielder is good policy. Bolstering the forward line and midfield then takes pressure off our beleaguered defence where we still have three fit and competent centre halves and numerous full backs despite Prosser's injury. Have we ever been this well blessed since moving to WHCS?

As far as I can tell from the various sources, so far it appears to be:

Official
Nicke Kabamba - 24yro forward from Pompey on loan until January
Sanmi Odelusi - 24yro forward from Wigan on loan until January
Brandon Cowley - 21yro midfielder from QPR on loan until January
Brandon Hanlan - 20yro forward from Charlton on loan until January

Unofficial (so far)
Ryan Inniss - 22yro centre back from Palace on loan for rest of the season.


Have I missed anyone?
