Despite Blues’ pre-season tour in Austria well underway, Redknapp hasn’t turned his attention away from the transfer window.

“I am hoping this week maybe we can get a player or two in.”

It’s been a very quiet month thus far in regards to incoming transfers, but it looks like there could be some more action at last. Here’s what the Blues boss had to say about transfers:

“We are very active, we are working our socks off, everybody, the owners, myself, trying to bring some players in to improve the quality of the squad.

“We have got plenty of irons in the fire, we are hoping to make some signings in the next week or so. “But we have got targets, I am hoping this week maybe we can get a player or two in.

“There’s a good chance we will get something over the line while we are out here.”

Blues fell short on their first pre-season encounter against FC Union today, losing 1-0.

Ravel Morrison and new signing Marc Roberts both featured, but ‘Arry said this evening he needs to see more from his players:

“It was difficult tonight. “Some of the lads have got to do better to convince me to get anywhere near my team.”

So I guess it’s just a case of wait and see, but it does sound promising that the gaffer is focusing on bringing quality in. Let’s hope we can look back at July as a real milestone for the club.

Also, let us know what areas of the field needs building on and who needs to shifted out, below.

Oh and Keep Right On!


  1. After watching that game and I know it’s so so early days ,but we need a quality defensive midfielder who can dictate play ,2 wide players ,at least 1 striker possibly 2 a left back ,so another 6 players to go into 1st 11 if we even expect to be in top half next season

  2. For me gardner has started as he left off ie poor. his legs seem to have gone and his free kicks and shooting poor!! Agreed left back, centre mid maybe charlie adam type or a big rock like ndaw. Fabrini needs to go and the turk as they are too lightweight and lose the ball in silly areas. we also need one more centre forward at least. wonder why brock didnt play some part

  3. We are what we are at the moment-a poor side with no vision or cutting edge.Currently we are bracketed along with Burton,Ipswich and Bristol City. 6/7 players badly needed.

  4. Agree with all the above … We are only a goalkeeper and a defender from Barnsley better than last year… Some of the clinkers need to be shifted on to . Very little quality in important areas …. time to get the irons out of the fire
