We've already got one game in hand - against Everton at CoMS - due to be re-scheduled. And thanks to the moved Carling Cup semi-final our game at Stoke City also needs to be played at some point in the spring. So that's another one to squeeze in.
Our squad is already starting to look a bit thin, having looked comfortably deep all season. So the idea of buying three or four extra bodies to provide cover and experience - even if they come with World Cup, European Championship, Premier League and Serie A winner's medals like Vieira - looks like a pretty good idea.
