It looks likely that the club will be signing Cardiff City striker Omar Bogle on a loan deal. The move from the Premier League side seems to be close if the Birmingham Mail are to believed.

The 26-year-old has not had the best of times in the last 18 months, having played for three clubs and scored just seven goals, but there is optimism among the fan base that he could succeed at St Andrew’s.

When I asked supporters their opinion of the club signing Bogle, the majority thought he would strengthen our attack:

It’s a difficult one to call. I trust Garry Monk’s judgement so I am inclined to give the forward the benefit of the doubt. He does have a lot to prove in the Championship. Three goals in 14 appearances for Wigan doesn’t tell us much. He was playing for a team fighting against relegation.

Again, at Cardiff, he only made four starts and scored three goals in three games between October and December either side of a three-match ban. However, his loan spell to Peterborough just didn’t work out. Let’s hope things are different if he moves here.

  • We are where we are is a common enough statement used by clubs who are hand tied for whatever reasons. Garry Monk no doubt has had to change his original policy for incoming players since our club’s mismanagement resulting in FFP crackdown. To sign players like Bogle and Mahoney must really hurt our manager who never would have contemplated this situation when agreeing to join the club. Monk is to be applauded for his behaviour in all this as I really did expect him to walk away,in view of false promises by Ren etc. Young players may have swayed his desire to battle on in view of his comments regarding our talented crop. What I cannot understand however is this freezing out of Stockdale and the nightmarish thought of Lee Camp. Yes,we know he has booted Stockdale out for whatever reasons but to mention Camp in the same breath is frightening. Hopefully Trueman does well and is protected by our back four which he will need to be with the never ending tough games coming up. With five loans our aim due to FFP, is a damning kick in the teeth for Monk who stated on his first day of arriving that he bitterly despises this policy- I must admit my fear that this cool,talented man will be a target for the first managerial vacancy that presents itself. Ren the cause.
