READ THE QUESTION

Ha - to be fair, in the thread title it doesn't mention anywhere that I should bother myself with other people's opinions as I rate them most lowly, hence I skipped the opening post.

 

But... £80m and 4

I'll largely go with that, but would say, in order of priority:

  1. RW - Buendia/Sarr/Brooks @ £40m or less
  2. LW/ACM (depending on the plan for Jack) - Rashica @ £14m
  3. LB cover/younger development option @ £5m
  4. No. 9 - ideally Edouard @ £20m (but maybe Tammy if we are pushing the boat out)
  5. DCM - Bissouma @ £40m
  6. Olise/Turnbull as bench/cover (for £10-12m mooted) @ £10m
  7. CB cover (if Engels goes) - ideally Tuanzebe (for £7m mooted) @ £7m

Which gives a gross spend of circa £135m (higher if we bring in Tammy) but we should re-coup £30m plus (I would add Nakamba into disposals if we are buying a new DM), and more if Wes is a proper exit, and a net spend of just over £100m.

2 starters; 3 squad players; hundreds for the academy.

£92m gross spend (I reckon we'll bring in £15m-£20m in sales, with 1 or 2 outgoings surprising some).

Big beefy manly bloke in the middle wot can pass - £35m

Rashica 2.0 - £15m

Buendia - £40m

x2 young uns to back up Cash and Targett - £10mill a piece

Therefore 5 players - £110mill total

111 million

4 players.  2-3 will be big money, the 4th will be cover/youth/backup type.

DM

RW/IF

CAM/W

LB/CB type for cover

 

Thats my personal order of importance.  UTV
