Do you remember the first match of last season – when Manchester City came to Upton Park and tonked us 2-0? Elano, a player I had never heard of, ripped us to sheds. He has now fallen out with Mark Hughes and should be available in January.
We desperately need a creative midfield play maker to create chances in the style of a Berkovic or Di Canio. At the moment we don’t have such a player.
Bearing in mind we won’t exactly have a fortune (if anything) to spend in January, who else might we consider for this position?
