It’s been a strange old start to life in the Championship for the Baggies. A barnstorming start saw us top of the pile early doors and even though we were shaky at the back, we were scoring goals for fun and we looked like putting three/four goals past every team we came up against. However, the opposition quickly worked out that the best way to peg us back was to put our three man defence under pressure and force them into mistakes. An injury to top goal scorer Dwight Gayle hasn’t helped either and the combination of the two has seen the club lose three from the last four matches which in turn has seen us slip into seventh spot in the table.

Now Moore has already confirmed he is looking to do some business in the January transfer window and the recent introduction of Ian Pearce to the recruitment/scouting team seems to indicate that the club are willing to back him and allow him to strengthen where he deems fit. Baring this in mind I have outlined four players who I feel would seriously strengthen us in areas where we have been found wanting of late, four players who have the potential to turn us into serious title contenders if brought in. Have a look through the slideshow and let me know what you think of my selections. Would you like to see any of the four brought in or should we be looking at better?
