I think this situation is starting to hot up. My first team recollections of Davies (long ago though they were) are that he looked like he had the potential to be a sensation (certainly by Championship standards). The current situation it seems to me in terms of transfers required in January is that we must buy another pacey winger, so that form and injuries can be covered (may end up being a loan of somone like Sinclair of course). I think most people would agree that the other area that looks most susceptible is central midfield. I personally feel that Henry is more than deserving of his starting berth, his partner is less clear cut. Our league position and points tally will tell you that neither Jones nor Edwards has let anyone down, but at the same time both have looked vulnerable as starters. My question is, given that this isn't champ man and Xavi won't be heading to the championship any time soon. Who is better than Mark Davies at his best? I'm not sure there are lots of realistic targets I'd consider better. Now that Davies is apparently finding form and fitness how damaging might it be for him in terms of movtivation etc if we do bring someone else in? Would he try to make his loan move permanent or not sign a new deal? Now obviously I would be against the club being held to ransom by anyone, but surely any player is going to look at his first team opportunities at contract time? I guess all I'm saying is that just bringing in another central midfielder may not be as clear cut an answer as some think. Based on the Leicester reviews (I know they're a league below but look at how Swansea have adapted) I'm starting to think I'd much rather see homegrown Mark Davies at full strength partner Henry than say a Marvin Elliot (Although I'd fully support any player we signed). One other thing to note is that I think Mick works well with a fairly tight squad. Having too many strikers last season was a big problem for us, it affected attitudes of players who felt detached from the first team and more importantly the chopping and changing affected the form of players. I bring this up to highlight another pitfall of signing another centre mid and bringing back Davies, I'd want him to come back hungry and feeling on the cusp of the side, so that a dynamic performance form the bench a la D.Edwards this season can see him earn a start.
