If our current income/ turnover is £50m and there will be an additional £100m in the premier league. Giving a total income of £150m next season.

There will also be additional costs, increased wages etc, Rads has said he does not want to spend big or as he put it, disrupt the squad with too many new additions.

All the talk elsewhere, of adding unknown left backs for £25m plus is rubbish.

How many players will we be able to get with a transfer kitty that maybe in the region of £30 to £40m?

Realistically we will need a minimum of 6 to 8 players, depending on how many of the current players MB decides are not in his plans.

Looking through the names in the U23's there are about half a dozen plus who could make the step up to the squad.

It is going to be very interesting to see who we bring in.

MB said yesterday we need to convert more of the numerous chances we create and this means adding quality strikers, wingers and creative midfielders. If we get this right we could become a very good team.

1970 We don't need 6 to 8 players. 4 or 5 all that's needed. 2 central defenders, 2 midfielders and a striker.

GIW if we loose White and move on 4 or 5 Beradi, Douglas, Foreshaw, Augustine, maybe Pablo . Then add in the 3 or 4 injuries MB always allows for, our squad would look very thin.
Just to have two decent options for every position we will need to recruit players.
In a perfect world maybe not but you hope for the best and plan for the worst.

1970 I'm sure Berra will go and a couple of others but you're not allowing for the desired emergence of the young crop. Casey Hosannah Struick Kenneh Kamwa Stevens Bogusz McCalmont McCarron McKinstry. We must be loyal to them and give them a chance. Some will go out on loan but recruiting a minimum of 6 like you say shall be too disruptive.

This would be George's recruitment list for 2020.


But I should stress not Woodrow Wilson. Lol 😆. There'll undoubtedly be others from abroad we'll be interested in. I think we should also be keeping our eye on Oxford (not the University town 😂) and David (not Craig 😆 but Jonathan) .

{Ed001's Note - Woodrow Wilson would be worth 14 points I reckon. Yeah I know, a history gag is probably a bit high brow for a football site but throwing it out there anyway.}

GIW, think MB will want to manage how the young players are developed and bring them through gradually especially if how he used them this season is anything to go by. MB likes his senior players, who he trusts. He will know exactly what he needs and where the weaknesses in the squad are. We need a couple of strikers, wingers, midfielders and defenders, quality upfront and good solid professionals for midfield and defence. We will not get away with using out of position players as stop gaps at this higher level.

we all know rads is both skint and tight. he could of invested over last two winter windows and hasnt. one year cost us the next year didnt. we all know we have had outside investement which has not always shown and now rads has said he is looking for more investement

at the end f the day let's just enjoy where we are. we might need to invest we might not. even if we lose every game next year losing to liverpool and west ham is better than losing to wigan and hereford

I don't think we need that many players, i think we have a decent team and our style is suited to prem but as last few years has shown no one on this this site can tell (and even bleisa ain't really got a clue because he is as good as he is bad) so let's just love life at the moment and next year what will be will be

that all said. we need a left back, two centre backs (take the two from millwall) one crative midfeilder (take jed wallace best player in championship and perrea of west brom or beraghana from Brentofrd) and a forward (no idea) . Sell phillips and use money to invest as shacks and stuijk are far better and we will be fine

but if we ain't so be it. better to get relegated as leeds than stay up as any other team. MOT.

20 Jul 2020 20:46:00
And at least if we get relegated it will hopefully be with some. better players and more money so we can prepare to return.

20 Jul 2020 22:26:53
Perrera is a west ham player on loan, they'll keep him next year.

20 Jul 2020 23:08:38
thanks richie i never realised that

so perrera is about as likely as ben white. we can rule them both out

and yes alf if we go down we will be in better shape and a day in the sun is better than no day at all. this said i think we will be comforatble next year.

21 Jul 2020 08:04:02
Makes him a great business man in my opinion, didn’t spend on players but still got promoted, we have to remember he bought our ground back and is as we speak heavily investing in a new world class training facility.

21 Jul 2020 08:38:39
The premiership starts very soon this time round

We will go in largely with what we have as there’s little time to bring in new players and blend them in or get them up to speed

Trust the process

We have u23s that have played this system for two years now

There’s cover.

We are going to surprise a few teams with how good we actually are.

21 Jul 2020 09:23:04
Sorry Richy but it's the Grady diangana lad that's west ham's player Pereira is west Broms they made is loan a perm from sporting Lisbon but I think Pereira would be a good signing if Brom domt make it up with us lol.

Taddy Leeds Utd doesn't own elland road, a holding company of Radz does which is a separate entity from the club .
