I can't see us signing any more players before the window closes. I did have high hopes when the players started to roll in but looking back most like Santos were non league players and they look like it.

Peter Kioso - Lad from Luton.

Wanderers have completed the signing of right-sided defender Peter Kioso on loan from Sky Bet Championship side Luton Town until the end of the season.

The 21 year-old has featured twice this season for the Hatters, playing in their Carabao Cup ties against Reading and Manchester United, whilst also collecting the Man of the Match award against the latter.

Originally in the youth setup at MK Dons, the Republic of Ireland-born defender began his professional career with Hartlepool United and impressed with the National League outfit during 18 months at Victoria Park before completing a move to the second tier with Luton in January 2020.

Upon Kioso’s arrival at the University of Bolton Stadium, Head Coach Ian Evatt said: “I am delighted to confirm we have signed Peter Kioso from Luton who is a player I have admired for a long time and have chased since the start of pre-season.

“Peter can play a variety of positions, has great pace and power and adds quality to our squad.”

After completing his loan switch, Kioso said: “I’m delighted to sign for the club and I can’t wait to get going and show everyone what I can do.’’

A full interview with Peter will be available on our channels soon.

This is one I know nowt about but if he has a massive engine and pace as advertised, he may be what we need to help support the attack without compromising the defence.

Kioso was the last signing - and that's fair enough as that was Evatt's 20th signing so he can hardly complain seeing Sharon seems to have mortgaged the cat to bring this lot in. 
The Board believe in him and they're the players he wanted.
So there are no excuses - he's either going to be the manager with great ideas who has spotted players with potential and will help them achieve it - or not.
I for one believe in him. He isn't the sharpest tool in the box but he has player experience, knowledge, media presence and a career to preserve - it's almost like watching Sean Dyche's apprentice managing a pilot scheme that he can only leave once he's got us promoted. The motivation isn't in question so he needs to find out what is and sort it.

Less rumour than fact but Faal's gone out on loan to see if Barnet can get a tune out of him apparently.
Is that to make space for incoming?
And if so, a striker?

I would also think the priority is a goalkeeper.

Whoever they intend bringing in would have to be a free agent until the January window opens.

Faal and Thompson were the first two 'Moneyball' signings brought in - Hill who was clearly out of favour at that time brought in Delany.

Hard to understand what was going on at the time even retrospectively especially since we've signed all these other 'Moneyball' defenders and end up with Delany and Brockbank who were non Moneyball signings and both now regular starters with most of the new signings looking really shit poor so far at least.

Phenomenal goal scoring record at  a lower level doesn't mean anything in the league so he was signed as a punt but he must have been pants in training as he's hardly been given a chance with us.

He desreved a go at league 2 level surely as we are hardly banging in goals for fun are we?

Hope he goes to Barnet and gets some game time and scores a few and then maybe he can come back.

Is that still a priority now that Gilks has shown he can still hack it? With Crellin and Alexander behind him I reckon we're well endowed in that department and there's nothing to suggest Gilks couldn't play the whole season anyway - giving the other two time to develop a bit more.

Gilks has certainly impressed but I think we need to acquire another keeper. I don't believe Crellin will ever be reliable and he is on loan anyway.

"It is understood a goalkeeper will be one of the key positions Wanderers are looking to strengthen, with concerns existing over loanee Billy Crellin’s recent form and whether 38-year-old Matt Gilks can hold up the number one spot for the remainder of the campaign".

I agree, another mature experienced goalkeeper would be my priority.

Ideally we need two players for every position. So I reckon keeper, a RWB (assuming Jones will play out of position at LWB?) and ideally a decent quality striker - if Doyle got injured again id be worried.

Gilks
Signing needed

Baptiste       Santos       Delaney
Brockbank    Greenidge   Taft

Kioso                  Tutte                       Jones
Signing needed   Thomason/Comley    Gordon/Mascoll?

   Sarc        Crawford
Isgrove    Darcy

Delf         Doyle
Gnaoha    Miller

Hickman can play RWB as could Brockbank when he's fit so we should be ok there but i agree we need another keeper and striker

Ye good point on Hickman, forgot about him. Thought he looked okay at the start of the season too, just a bit raw.

Long season ahead, but if we can keep the spine of Sarc, Santos and Doyle fit i think we're in with a good chance.

Crawford worries me, his free kicks rarely produce a constructive ball and when he shoots he usually blasts it into the stands.

Yes, I know he scored on Saturday.

Hopefully Darcy will get more chances.

Not for me.
Gilks will do and Alexander was great against Coventry last year so should be fine at this level. Longer term maybe another goalie, but if we're going to have a push for promotion this season, we need the money elsewhere.

Well we've got to a level which suggests we won't be in a relegation battle so we should be looking up the table, especially with this run of games against lower placed opposition, and if we're going to recruit we should have that in mind. We can always reshuffle in the summer when the loanees return, but the job in hand is now.

If no keeper what position would you spend the money on Lust?

We can't spend the money on transfer or loan fess remember as we are still under embargo...

...and not to be too negative about things, we still need to pay off all outstanding creditors from Administration at the end of the season or face a further 13 point penalty (I think it is 13, might even be 15?)

We will bring in a keeper, there's no doubt about that considering Alexander is only 18 years old and isn't anywhere near ready yet and Crelin who has something like a dozen combined England caps for the Under 17s/18s/19s/20s, is clearly not the finished article by a long way yet.

Do you need to be pedantic about everything? Everyone’s aware of the situation, and you know exactly what Lust meant.

Pedantic???

I'm just telling it as it is.

If you want to be unrealistic about things then I think we should put in a bit for Alisson, Salah, and Mane  from Liverpool, might as well go for Kane at Spurs as well  - is that the sort of reply you were looking for instead?

And if there's one thing I do know about Wanderlust he can never admit that he's ever wrong so he'll ALWAYS say we didn't need to bring another keeper in because if he didn't he would be admitting he got it wrong in the first place!
