Manager Karl Robinson and captain Johnnie Jackson are to travel to Belgium tomorrow to meet Roland Duchatelet and plead for new signings. Chief executive Katrien Meire will travel with them to ensure that they behave themselves.
However, Robinson is already respectfully referring to Roland as 'the president'. (Curiously, Katrien has referred to him as 'The Shareholder', but one could think of other names). The trio, along with Richie Barker, will take in the match between Sint Truiden and one time mother ship Standard Liege.
Robinson wants two midfielders and a winger (the latter presumably to replace Lookman). Robinson declared confidently on Goal Rush, 'We're going to spend in January.'
The meeting will be in English, but translation from Scouse will be available.
