Keeper could be priority; Fans' Zone.

Byline: By Matty Evans, Twist 'n Shout

It's approaching that time of year again, the January transfer window, could it be an exciting one for the Sky Blues?

While the seemly never-ending pot of money at Chelsea looks to splash out on another striker, could there be some activity at the Ricoh Arena transfer door?

We never really get linked with anybody due to the financial constraints but could that be about to end?

I seem to remember a statement that their would be some funds for Mickey Adams in the transfer window courtesy of an American investor, this may have been a rumour, it may even have been a dream but I am certain I heard it somewhere.

Twist 'N' Shout decided to do a bit of digging around and can confirm that the investor isn't any of the following; Glazer, Kaft or Disney.

So who would Mickey be looking at bringing in? Surely his top priority has to be a goalkeeper, if he isn't going to give Ince a chance (who has done nothing wrong!) then he has to bring in a permanent solution.

Obviously, I'd love to see Bywater back but I doubt we'll get that much money to strengthen, who else is there?

Possibly Lenny Pidgeley at Chelsea? Solid 'keepers are hard to come by for a club like us, so it will be interesting to see who he brings in.

The money coming in may just be money for wages, so free signings and loan deals would be the only options for Adams.

Some good loan signings that could be available are Kasper Schmeichell, yes, son of Peter, from Man City, Rossi (striker) from Man Utd and another striker, Lupoli, from Arsenal.

You're probably now thinking why do we need more strikers, probably because most of them will leave in January.

I think the lure of money will be too much for Robinson and he will accept bids for top scorers Dele Adebola and Gary McSheffrey.

With the World Cup coming up I could also see Stern John leaving, although he seems to have his international place guaranteed he will want to be playing regularly up to the tournament next summer.

Who else could go? I think Ady Williams will go to Millwall in a straight swap for Don Hutchison.

Don's wages could be a problem though but if this supposed money does come in, it would be nice to add a bit of class.

I think the big shock could be Stephen Hughes leaving. I don't know about anybody else but he seems way off the pace and Jorgensen, Osbourne and Doyle really gelled against Millwall.

Whatever happens, please, no washed up ex-Leicester players!

Take care at QPR, it could get a bit interesting on and off the pitch after what happened in Ibiza and at the Ricoh in August! Never mind it being on Sky, get yourself down there, I'm sure CCFC appreciate your support. Finally Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Twist 'N' Shout.
