If we are looking for another option at CB at the end of the season does anyone think Christophe Berra might be a good acquistion? Not sure about his wages but I believe he's under contract at Ipswich Town until June, so might even be a good pre-contract option.

Good player but I think we need to sort out a winger and striker first.

Completely agree, just a thought because we are no doubt going to lose Hill at the end of the season and Kiernan possibly before then if an offer comes in.

Our weakest position is midfield where we are short of a holding midfield player and a defensive midfield player.
I am astonished that people still see the need for a centre back when, if we replaced Halliday we would strengthen both our midfield and our attacking options.

Look at our goal difference and the main reason why we don't turn draws in to wins is because we do not covert chances
We need a proper goal scorer (20 plus per season if not two)
After that we need two quality centre halfs then a Defensive midfielder.

If we get an out-and-out striker I doubt if MW would play him, he would not suit our style of play. How often this season was a good delivery into the opponents penalty-area wasted because no one is there. Mark Hateley and Derek Johnstone were excellent in the air but how many goals would they score a season from headers if they played in this system?

Trueblue94, although its not top priority berra would be perfect candidate for CB played our league so no probs adapting and he is quality player I've said before on here berra is who I would b after for cb in summer.

Of course i'm the first to admit that we need to sign possibly 2 midfielders and a striker this month, but there's one priority i think we should do this month, before anything else. Get barrie mckay tied down to a longterm deal with obviously better terms and a transfer fee clause inserted into the deal! This safeguards us against paltry bids for him which will inevitably happen, as he's only got 18 months left to run on his current contract! Eventually he'll sign for a big enough english club anyway but at least if we get him tied down, he'll leave on OUR terms and not for buttons!
