I like the idea of your suggestions Raider.
Mignolet, Cesar, Al Habsi from Wigan? for GKs
Cabaye for sure, Maybe Remy (not sure about his attitude) Cisse and Beneteke could be worth a shout. Yet apart from the GK options and Cabaye none of them really stand out as a YES!!
Wigan do have McCarthy though who although not necessarily world class would certainly provide some steel in our midfield good squad player. Oh and Wigan have had Ryo on loan,..so we want him back :)
Sunderland I like Mclean and Johnson dunno if they would necessarily improve us but i would be happier seeing Johnson getting a run out over Gerv. and i do feel we need a LW/LMF so Mclean and Johnson could help.
