Charlie Adam (free) , Kyle Bartley (£2m) , Tom Lawrence (loan) , Alfonso Pedraza (loan) , Adel Taarabt (£1m) , Jota (£4m) , Tom Beugelsdjik (£500k) . That'd be my business for the summer. More attacking threat, a nasty midfielder which we sorely lacked and a third CB, Beugelsdijk is basically a carbon copy of Jansson.

Good list so far as goes but we need more. Couple of LBs for a start. Denton not good enough yet and you can hardly intend for the Swiss Army Knife to play there all season. I believe we need no less than 11 recruits. I'd add Defoe, Ince and Kent to that list.

18 May 2017 13:07:57
11 george? I reckon 6 first teamers is enough. Swiss army knife. Funny guy.

18 May 2017 13:47:14
not bad, I'd say delete Taraabt and Pedraza tho, Jota and Bartley the 2 outstanding ones in the list

18 May 2017 14:47:58
I don't think we need 11 recruits George, just 4/5 on top of what we had last year should be ok. We need more firepower and goals from midfield.

18 May 2017 15:12:45
I think there are a few players who are still on contract but also not good enough, so if we shipped them out then 10 or 11 would be the number of new players I got to as well. Left B, 2xC Halfs 2/3wingers,2 x centre mid, no 10 and 2 strikers . We are looking to build a proper squad and one that if and when we go up can achieve top half of the prem.

18 May 2017 15:15:10
I think Adam Armstrong on a season loan from Newcastle would be good business. Adds more mobility up top and offers a good option from the bench.

18 May 2017 15:18:17
You are mistaken SG. Here's what we need Reserve goalkeeper. Doubts must creep in on Green because of his age despite having an excellent season plus who ever knows what's going on with Silver Vest and Turnbull gone so at least 1 addition in goal. 2 left backs. No Charlie. No cover right now for replacement Charlie. Denton will probably join a League One team on loan. 3 central defenders. No Bartley yet. Assuming we get him that's one. Cooper not good enough. I'd keep him though at least til we get replacement. Pontus yes but will be prone to injury suspension international call ups so after Bart you need another 2 really. Midfield. Sacko and Pedraza currently gone so there's 2 out the gate there. Creative midfielder a must so that makes 3. Attack. Cover for Wood and a small quick nimble fox in box type for Plan B. That's 2. Total is 1 plus 2 plus 3 plus 3 plus 2 equals 11. Over and out. George

18 May 2017 15:41:53
The problem is if we buy a whole new team again, we'll have to wait for them to settle in and gel again. We need to get off to a fast start next season.

18 May 2017 17:13:56
Not sure of targets but we need one keeper green was great back end but joke at start and he is getting old, i would feel comfortable with new keeper left back unless taylor stays which i hope he does if not need left back. bartley plus one other cb cooper decent but need better. pontus is good but always likely to miss games due to sluking or suspensions so need bartley plus one more decent centre mid although briduct played properly would be useful two wingers and one striker i make that 8 in with maybe 4 going out. taylor, douk, dallas, one more at least

18 May 2017 17:30:26
SG, your reply beggars belief. Loss of Bartley is probably worth 10 points a season. Then there's no recognized left back. We've lost 2 wingers who performed only adequately all season. We have no second striker, let alone a Plan B. As it stands, I see a squad capable of reaching only high 50 points mark in a season. Be under no illusion. 11 players are needed. 5 or 6 first teamers. Same amount for squad filling.

18 May 2017 17:45:26
George, last season we were supposedly going to struggle with our team, I don't see any outstanding teams in this league, so don't see how we'd struggle to get 50 points at all. Bartley missed one game last season, so it's not like he's injury prone is it? I'd rather spend on a creative attacking player than a gk. Berardi showed he is good enough for LB.

18 May 2017 18:20:40
George isn't actually far out on how many players we need to bring in to be fair. It should be pointed out that we are set to lose 6 players from in and around the first team (by my count Bartley, Taylor, Pedraza, Sacko, Barrow, Grimes) and we looked short of players a couple of times. Bare minimum for me is 2 CB's (hopefully Bartley as 1) , a LB, 3 wingers, 1 AM and a striker that's 8 before any departures.

18 May 2017 18:50:29
I'd rather sign 4/5 players of genuine quality to improve the first XI than 10 average squad players.

19 May 2017 01:07:12
SG. All for the 5 first teamers with genuine quality then the remainder reliable squad players. No point silly overspending but the squad requires thickening no doubt. I am greedy but in attack I want Abraham, Lawrence and Defoe or Fletcher. Also, don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying we poor. If we recruit right and aggressively we shall be promoted in 2018. Just think what an extra salvo of goals from genuine goalscorers would do for us!

19 May 2017 03:58:14
Agree that we need 4 quality first teamers SG (CB, LB, LW, RW) but we also need some squad players on top to give us depth (At least another CB, another winger, an attacking mid and a striker. A lack of bodies cost us at the end of last season, we just couldn't rest players.
