Transfer Window Round Up - January 2011
'aint broke, don't fix it they say and that appears to be
exactly the mantra that Gus Poyet has adopted for the League
One topping Albion in the January transfer window.
one player comes in and that is Craig Noone as Brighton take
advantage of Plymouth's financial woes to snap up the man
who was the best player on the pitch when we went to Home
Park back in September.
Whing's loan spell at Leyton Orient turns into a permanent
move but perhaps most importantly was the rejection of
Norwich City's £1.5m bid of Elliott Bennett. The winger may
have put in a subsequent transfer request but he is still
here which has to be the best bit of business the club could
- Leyton Orient
The 2008-09 Player of the Season's hard working
but limited approach was never going to fit in to
what Gus Poyet wanted. He has hardly featured since
the arrival of Inigo Calderon and it's no surprise
to see the club release him to sign a permanent deal
at Leyton Orient.
- Plymouth Argyle
The best player on the
park when we won 2-0 away at Plymouth in September
and that obviously stuck in Gus' mind as he has now
signed the wideman for £250,000. A tricky player
with pace to burn, him and Bennett down the flanks
is a frightening proposition.
- With Whing gone
and McNulty out on loan, could we have done with
some full back cover?
Have the Albion done the
deals to ensure that they remain at the top of the table for
the rest of the season? Where else might you have looked to
strengthen? Share your thoughts on the January transfer
window with us.
