I know little about most of the players signed, beyond what I read here and elsewhere, but I think I am beginning to see a strategy.

Limited investment in players "for now", with the aim of it being enough to keep us in the top flight.

Greater investment in younger players that are highly regarded and seem to have a lot of potential. The idea being some may be able to help out this season, but all will form the backbone of a top team in a couple of years.

I actually don't mind this as a strategy.

Maybe I have missed the announcement, but my only concern remains the absence of a signature from El Loco.

{Ed0666's Note - I would try and guarantee premiership status with ready made legit ballers then supplement it with youth. But Biesla knows best and I can’t wait for his post match interviews. He makes Mourinho look dull.

I think the likes of struik. Shacks. Provedo will prove to be reliable enough as cover for the new ones.
Bamford will start and I admire his work rate but I’m hoping that rods knocks him off his perch with goals. And Koch will go straight in I think.

Oops. Didn’t mean that. Stephen tut tut!

29 Aug 2020 07:07:26
I’m with you on that one Aus.
Just wondering if we get a third big signing in after Koch, Rod ? Have a feeling that, that’s all our shopping done for now.

29 Aug 2020 07:37:53
Would you like Koch to go straight in Aus? Are you getting all excited again?

29 Aug 2020 07:41:40
I can still see Kent and Watkins arriving Opt.

29 Aug 2020 07:54:07
You are at it again Aus!

29 Aug 2020 07:55:06
I think there will be one more opti. Midfielder or winger
Don’t know who though.

29 Aug 2020 07:59:38
Ollie Watkins would be a solid addition, think Rangers will sell Kent but only for more than he’s worth.

Banking on young players coming good is fair enough but it is important that they reach their potential. As we showed last year a lot of them don't and that's where the plan can be flawed.

The youth players we have signed this season are of a better standard and likely to be able to more quickly be able to train and play with the first team.

That said it remains crucial we sign a proven natural goalscorer 20 goal a season guy for us to not only dominate games but more importantly win games

we do not want deja vu of the Arsenal game result of last season.

29 Aug 2020 09:48:09
With a name like Robin Koch is his agent Lorena Bobbitt!

29 Aug 2020 09:52:43
We are definitely not finished with those two. Kinnear stated two weeks ago, that we planned to spend between 75 and 100mill this window. Felipe next, and another winger / creative midfielder after. Then, we’ll be the finished article, and not to to “survive” in the PL, but to take some sides to pieces, and show the PL up for what it really is! I’m so optimistic on a hungover Saturday morning! Lol!

Flawed yes Alf but they’ve got to be bloodied from time to time in first team games or they’ll never come good, risk I know but Bielsa has got us this far I think he knows what he can get out of his young guns.
