The January transfer window Is again frustrating Sammo in his attempts to bring in the illusive striker that will shoot us from mid table to playoff challengers and it appears that the first two choices of his wish list are now out of play. Shaun Harrad looks set to climb the footballiing ladder and join a League One club at least. His performance against Middlesbrough in the F.A. C up over the weekend will have endeared himself to any possible suitors and the Teesside club themselves will be wondering where they can get a bargain goal scorer from.
Meanwhile, Marvin Morgan has chosen Dagenham as his new home by joining the Daggers on loan, presumably until a more permanent deal can be thrashed out. Morgan could have been a perfect fit but again we’re pipped to that post. Time s are a changing and the fact that Dagenham is a better prospect than coming to Sixfields is slightly disconcerting despite the Daggers’ promotion last season.
So where to turn next? Sammo’s got his eyes firmly on Rene Howe it seems whilst Emile Sinclair’s name has also been banded about the stands at Sixfields. We certainly need someone to match Sammo’s ambitions and believe that they can make that difference.
The battle goes on…
