I think it is still abundantly clear for us all that we are still some 4-6 players light.
Without a doubt things with PFC are improving, all manor of things at this club are better now and seemingly have been since CSI's arrival.
We can safely say that the squad is in much better shape than it was 12-months ago at this stage.
Still, we need more though...
For me Steve Cotterill has 'perhaps' been premature in his ruling out of anymore free agent signings. No club, regardless of their riches, would turn down a freebie - in some ways I get where he is coming from, given his reasoning, but still think that there could be at least one out there that is within our grasp and good enough as a squad player at least.
Splashing the cash in not what I want to see but bringing our permanent numbers up to 18 or so before we look to the loan market is the way I hope we go.
So, what do I think we need?
I would say, and this is my own opinion of course, the following...
* A left back and right back - at a push a versatile full back that could play on either flank.
* We are pretty stocked, but assuming Moko goes then another central defender would not go amiss.
* Again we have decent numbers but another central midfielder would be handy.
* Wide right in the attacking area is something we need.
* A striker, a central striker at that is essential. Varney will play wide so Kitson and Kanu is never enough.
In this far from ideal world if these arrivals, in the areas I think we need them, could be permanent squad signings it would be fantastic!
