All Quiet On The Transfer Front

All Quiet On The Transfer Front

We all know the current financial situation at the club won't allow Paul Sturrock to bring in his desired quantity of players to the club today - but it makes it even more painful watching clubs up and down the country bring in fresh faces to bolster their squad as the transfer deadline approaches.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has already revealed he won't be bringing anyone into the club at the last minute - with young Charlton winger Lloyd Sam being the final signing of the year on a one-month club last week.

Of course Sturrock is desperate to add to his attacking options, and has done so with the signing of Lloyd Sam last week. But with Steve Maclean, Marcus Tudgay, Barry Corr and Drew Talbot still sidelined, it makes painful viewing to see the Owls Championship rivals bolster their squad with excellent additions.

Stoke City have added to their attacking options with the arrival of Southampton striker Ricardo Fuller. If the former Preston North End hitman manages to stay fit for the Owls Championship rivals, the £100k price tag could prove an absolute bargain.

Plymouth Argyle have also added Cherno Samba (who many of you probably recognise from the Championship Manager series) and Marcel Seip to their ranks. Both these clubs are likely to be around the same position as the Owls this season - or were expected to be before today's transfer deadlings.

Former Wednesday target Neil Mellor has also made the switch to one of the Owls Championship rivals this week. The former Liverpool hitman made the short trip to sign for Preston North End yesterday to add to the Deepdale club's already impressive attacking options.

So what of the Owls? Have they got enough to make an improvement on last season's finishing without adding to their squad? Many believe the return of the current injured crop will be like getting new players anyway. Marcus Tudgay, Steve Maclean, and the improved fitness of Deon Burton should solve the current striker crisis, while the return of Richard Wood, Peter Gilbert, Drew Talbot, Barry Corr and Steve Adams will also bolster the Owls squad.

So with all the transfer activity currently going on around the Football League, maybe the Owls will have their own 'new signings' of their own in the next few weeks. We can all keep our fingers crossed, anyway...

Happy with the current squad? Think the Owls board should dig deep to give Paul Sturrock some transfer funds? Have YOUR say on the Vital Sheffield Wednesday forum by clicking HERE

To be fair on the club when our existing players return from injury we have better squads than these clubs regardless of who they signed yesterday. A couple of premiership loans would have been nice but we know that was never going to be the case

Extra frustrating that we couldn't pull in at least one player though.
