With Struik as cover for Philips and at centre half, also with Shacks as cover for Klich, then Foreshaw to come back the midfield area of the pitch is reasonable covered with these 5 players.
Ayling, Dallas and Alioski covering the full back permutations alongside maybe one of the U23's and Douglas
If we can get White or similar on a permanent deal, alongside Cooper Struik and Casey we may need one more Centre Half.

Up front playing 3 behind the striker is the area where the may look to strengthen most. I can see a case of them bringing in 4 players, two wingers, a striker and a 10 who can play up top.

Thats gives a total of 6 players including White
We really should not have to break the bank for that, Tom Lawrence, Harry Wilson, Eze, Buendia, Pukki would all be on my shopping list.

If we get this right we will do well

One last thing let's not waste time waiting for an answer, if they don't want to come when asked, move on and get someone else. This thing of getting into a bidding war is not a good way to start.

Spot on with your final paragraph Leeds 1970.

23 Jul 2020 13:59:41
Agree with last paragraph leeds. If they don’t say yes please. Bugger them.
Think with Harrison who has been my player of the season and costa and prevod we only need one winger. If no white then we need a cb. If no Hernandez we need very good replacement and one big time striker. Bamford and Tyler to cover.

agree with all apart from cooper playing. sentiment aside. cooper has to be sold and nnot play for leeds again. like vinnie jones and mervin day last time we went up. thanks for the memories but time to move on.

Not much time! Bielsa needs his meeting and he’s not rushing. He needs to outline his demands. Anyone at Brentford, Fulham, Swansea and Cardiff off limits for a time. Added to that clubs in the champions league and europa league will be late in making squad decisions as will the premiership given the closing of the window. So not easy to get quick signatures unless we’ve already got some approaches sorted.

Think we could be starting with largely this squad and the main chance of a quickie will be White. But considering we had Costa, Phillips and Forshaw missing from the last squad, not a bad starting point.

I’m interesting in who we get in for Carlos, if he is to be replaced. That linking role between the under 23s and first team worked well.

Just Eze, Buendia and Puuki would do me.

23 Jul 2020 16:47:05
Eze is possibly the easiest of those three to get Leodis, i'm sure Norwich won’t want or need to sell. That said we hopefully look like a better bet for longer term premier football.

Berm I see what your saying but Wilko once said he wished he kept Vinnie. IMO it’s important to keep a nucleus of same squad and Cooper is an important part of that just like Jones was. Is he good enough for the premier league? Not sure but I’ve seen plenty over the years make the step up who I thought wouldn’t last ten games.

23 Jul 2020 22:55:08
Agree Corky, re: Cooper. He will be captain next season!
Not Bielsas way, thankfully, to discard a vital part of the team! I’m not 100% sure if Liam is premier league quality but then again how much better is the PL? I’ve said before it’s not really about individual ability it’s about the collective efforts of the team/ squad! Of interest the bookies have us at 3/ 1 for top half finish and 33/ 1 for top 6.

23 Jul 2020 23:00:30
very true cork and a lot have recently made the step up with great success, Mount i thought would do well but never thought todd cantwell would do as he has done.

NOt sure why wilko said that about vinne. maybe he was watching his back. Wilko new what he had to do and did it, that's why we come 4th and then 1st after being promoted. the mistake wilko then made was not repalcing lukic (who i love) white and chapman. Sadly by the time wilko rectified this (with boywer, radebe and martyn) it was too late i think had we kept him on he would of won the league again once the woodgates, kwelles etc come through

sentiment is for us fans, not the managers.

For shaw? Come on, he's only been fit about 3 times in the last 2 years.
