Great result today despite not being our usual selves grinder out the result to the very end! The promised land is in site and it is the most excited I have been all year.

Just out of curiosity which signings and positions would you guys like to see strengthened in the coming transfer window and by who? My ideal signings would be Bogle from Derby think he's a quality RB with bags of potential, Buendia from Norwich who could replace Pablo in the future, and I know this isn't realistic haha but I'd love to see Giroud on loan up top, think he'd suit our system perfectly and a lack of game time due to Chelseas signings could work in our favour. Be great to hear your opinions and ideas.

think bogle is good however i think RB is the one position we don't need to strenghten as ayling is IMO our best player and one of few who could do well in the prem

i think CB's are the biggest problem then followed by a deadly forward.

Brewster on loan
Wilson on loan, (but I don't think you can loan 2 from 1 club)
Cantwell from Norwich
White a definitely but can't see it
Going to say Jones, beilsa might improve him
Dare I say lingard.

Unfortunately I don't think the majority of the team would be able to cut it in the Premier league. Other than Ayling, Messlier and possibly Phillips (he will need to learn how to compensate for his lack of pace in the Prem which could be a major Achilles heel) I just don't think the rest are good enough. Pablo may be just too old now which would be a massive shame (unless he also could adapt his play to suit and I hope if we make it he does because he has been an absolute legend this season) and we are stuck with Costa who may come good but the rest of them aren;t good enough for that level week in week out imo. We also don't even own a lot of the team so White will go back, Harrison I have doubts about even at Champ level let alone the Prem as he is too inconsistent, don't get me started on Cooper, Kiko awful, and a lot of the others have heart but not good enough.
Saying that, signing too many new players can unbalance a team and they would need to gel so it could be a mistake replacing everyone wholesale leaving us open to a terrible start to the season and relegation so we have to be careful. With that in mind maybe 4/ 5 astute signings may be the best option to integrate with the rest of the team.
Hopefully some of the youth will come good but if they haven't been good enough for the Champ this season why would they be ready for the step up?
Hopefully we will get the answer to these questions if we get promoted.

Sheff u and brighton players didn't look up to it, they managed ok
Dont want to do a Ville or fulham and over pay
But please don't do a Norwich with no investment
Are psg still sniffing.

Jonny. Leave grinder alone mate, you don't need it. Just be patient, you'll find true love soon! 👍😭💙💛💙.

Alf I would be on the same lines as you. Think 6 or 8 could be moved on, end of loan, haven't got the legs anymore, retired etc . We will need to strengthen no matter what league we are in.

Would love to see Pablo nursed thro the Prem season, if anyone deserves it, he does but I would look to find a Pablo clone somewhere in the world. As far as a creative attacking midfield goes how about John Swift or Cantwell? If we cannot break the bank and keep Ben White then definitely need a ball playing CB. Same thing with KP if we cannot keep him then a Robin Koch type would be needed in there. Upfront, at least one winger is required the worse being the waste of many millions Costa. He may come good but how long can you hope for? and Lastly, a 30 goal a season striker. I just cannot put my finger on the problem with BamBam he has all the attributes and at times all the skill, it's just, well it's just that he cannot score? I would love to know his tally for the season if you add in all the sitters that he missed.
So, in essence I am looking at 5, altho that may be too many to stay settled. I also have not allowed for any of the U23s who will come through. Knowing Bielsa (as we do) it will be 2 new faces but relying on the bodies that got us there to do it again and keep us there. By there I am being presumptive!

The problem with Bam Bam is his finishing. He either doesn't have time to or is unable to direct his shots or headers once he has got on the end of them. This means sometimes they go in but often they miss or go straight at the keeper. If he could improve this aspect of his game he would be worth £50 million rather than £10 million but at his age I doubt he has it in him. A real shame as the other aspects of his game are very good and he does get into the right areas.
