No signings looking ever likelier. The club needed to treat this like the summer window and accept we may need to overpay to get deals done. I worry massively especially for forward areas and creativity. If Abraham gets injured long term, the top 4 is gone.

RJ28P I would love to have seen at least one signing this window that could have added genuine quality to the side, as I fear Bruno Fernandes will to United. Would much like us to have signed him. Perhaps such a signing (or two?! ) will still happen. But as Ed002 has pointed out and most of us accept the January window is v tricky for obvious reasons beyond the financial ones - and to most clubs including CFC presumably latter still a consideration if books to be balanced/ money not wasted - because few clubs would allow best players to leave mid-season. So I agree with you that we need (and club knows it) to bring in another striker/ proven goal scorer to have better chance of top 4 place but clearly real quality one needs to be both available and willing to come to us. Bit like TomB - if you read this Tom, much hope you're doing ok and my thoughts like others on here are with you - I don't like endless paper speculations and look forward to window closing. If a surprise fantastic signing still comes in will be great of course.

JBS, listening to Lampard's interviews, you can hear the frustration. Judging on what journalists are saying, we are penny-pinching again. I'd love Lampard to come out and give his true honest opinion on the board and say what he wanted this window as it is clear as day we've failed to provide it. Buck said in November the next window would show how much Roman was committed to Chelsea. Evidence so far is very little.

RJ28P - what does it even mean to be "penny pinching"?
Nowhere in the world will you find a business that will be spending several millions more than what they believe the product they're buying is worth - at least I think you would have a really, really hard time finding a lot of healthy businesses that would do that.
And while Chelsea is a football club, it is also a business, and the governing bodies of the footballing world have certain rules to prevent clubs from spending much more money than they earn.
Paying too much for players should not be the road to go, because why wouldn't every club in the following transfer windows not want us to pay more for their players?
At least, I myself have complete faith in the leaders of this club that they're trying their very best to secure a responsible future for the club that we all love.

EmilSC, I mean it's why we won't meet Dembele's asking price, why we want a reduction on Sancho's asking price, why we won't pay the costs for Cavani. The list goes on.

Well I do get what you mean. But it's honestly very difficult as a person that isn't involved in the deals to be able to tell whether Dembele is being valued to high by Lyon because of injuries, and perhaps Cavani is simply just seen as being too expensive given his age and recent injury record?
In regards to Sancho, it quite simply seems as if Dortmund have put a very very high valuation on him, but with a lot of the biggest clubs in Europe interested in him, why wouldn't they?

Van Dijk seemed expensive. I bet everyone now would say it was good business. Our board refuse to pay up when it matters. When did we last sign a first choice target.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about.}
