It’s January, and clubs fearing relegation have sent the Batsignal up into the dark night sky. They don’t know the identity of their hero and they don’t care if he’s the hero they deserve – they just know he’s the hero they need. But who is their mysterious saviour? Which signing could lift them clear of the trapdoor?
NTT20.COM is here to unmask these heroes, which technically makes us the villains in this scenario. Never mind. We’ve taken the nine teams currently occupying a relegation place in the Football League and made it our mission to identify what needs fixing, and who could fix it.

But back to the here and now, we have some questions to answer. Quite simply: what does each struggling team need most of all, and who could they sign this month to provide it?
