I would echo this, the club was poisonous at the time. The squad now while low in quality overall (I'd fancy myself to score as many as Davis/Samatta) does seem to have a closeness.
I thinks Mings, Konsa & Cash should all be solid options in the back, I am probably one of the few who rates Fred and Targett links up well with Jack.
GK needs sorting it was such a hole for us last year when Tom got injured and it did not help the confidence of the 10 players in front of the GK.
Luiz, Jack & SJM are all very nice players, Hourihane is a solid squad player and Marvellous deserves another season.
We need wingers massively Trez and El Gazhi are not up to it and as already mentioned the strikers are a joke.
I can understand the logic in signing the likes of Wilson, he is an upgrade on what is already there maybe not Wes but he's a big lad and we can't rush him back.
However, I was hoping for young exciting talent, players bought with PL experience for me are incredibly over priced and the money could be spent better else where IMO.
