or is he happy for us just to stay in the league playing mediocre football on a shoestring? We are not skint but it seems that all of a sudden we are being very careful with money. Until a couple of days ago I was convinced we would sign a top striker before the window closes, now I'm not too sure. I think we will struggle to improve on or even achieve 13th without a couple of creative players. We don't really have goals in the side apart from Bent, our defence and midfield rarely chip in with the odd goal so we rely so much on our forward line. When we sold Jones I wasn't too bothered as I assumed we would have a replacement lined up straight away but clearly we do not, if it goes tits up it could be suicide for Bruce as the sale of Jones will be thrown in his face if things turn bad. I am normally a happy clapper but I admit I am getting worried, we were promised 2 or 3 players of Bent's quality, now we are told not to expect a big signing. Bruce said he would now be shopping at Harrods....I remain to be convinced, Riveros may turn out to be brilliant, he looked canny at the world cup and I have been impressed with Bramble but the side is in dire need of creativity.
