Ok, this therapy stuff is starting to get a little creepy: can we stop looking for salvation through the transfer window.
Hot on the heels of Anton Ferdinand's departure on loan to Turkey (closure), and Ale Faurlin's move to Palermo (denial), we have Harry Redknapp's eagerness to bring in Peter Crouch (guilt).
I don't know what to think about this one: it's a bit like seeing an ex-wife for whom you still have feelings. On the one hand it would be wonderful to see Peter Crouch in the Hoops once more, but you can't help feeling that he left us at the right time and going back will only hurt both parties.
Crouch (affectionately nicknamed Dave for his likeness to Rodney Trotter) was with us for such a short time, but he was an instant hit and shone like a beacon amid the rather doleful lot that got us relegated to League One from the Championship.
It also helped that he was a local lad (West Ealing, just off the Uxbridge Road) who supported the club as a boy.
But perhaps what endeared Dave to the QPR faithful most was his generosity in donating a substantial sum of money to the club when we were passing round the buckets during the Administration period. Pure class.
The heart wants to repay him with a big, fat signing-on fee and standing ovation or two, but the head is being sensible and telling me we don't need another target man - we have Bobby Zamora and, er... Jay Bothroyd.
What we need is a sharp shooter, another quality midfielder and a central defensive partnership. With QPR's offer for Crouch up to £5 million already I think the heart should be left longing this time. Here's hoping Stoke - who want to bring in at least five new faces this window - hold their nerve.
