    Andros Townsend

    This is the same Townsend involved in an 8-0 aggregate victory over us last season. Thought he played well at our place and put a good ball in for Benteke for their opener as I remember. He is no world beater, but would welcome him in to our squad. Incidently, I'm not convinced we are in for him anyhow.

    Stefano Sturaro

    Got the feeling Iborra hasn't settled to life in England that well. Let's face it, he was injured plenty of times too. Don't think Puel rates him that much. We need someone capable of playing 30 odd games straight if required. Intrigued by this potential signing.

    Ben Gibson

    Perfect back up to Evans and Maguire.

    I think this is the end of Dragovic. The players are very similar in stature and their styles. Interesting to see if this is the only CB we get in or whether Wes stays as back up.

    Marouane Fellaini

    He has a lot of experience and would be ideal in the matches where we need to roll up our sleeves and grind results out. Iborra can't stay fit for more than 6 games. It's a yes from me and boot out James/King/Mendy at the same time.

    Goalkeepers: Jordan Archer + Jakupovic / Hamer

    Going to sit on somebody else's bench. If it was me I would be craving 40 odd games surely after 20 in 4 years! Says it all. Money over game time.

    Danny Drinkwater: Would you re-sign him?

    I wouldn't want him back here. For a start he is one of the downtooling old guard. Why would we want to increase that number when we are trying to phase them out. I don't think he will be a Chelsea player next year to be honest. I can see him being loaned out for a season to another Prem team, but shouldn't be us.

    Clever clogs!

    Forget back up to Kasper. We need a keeper who will take his place. How often do teams buy a young keeper who eventually replaces the old one? Tom Heaton or Fraser Forster would be good signings.

    How City may line up next season ...

    I think we will see the 4-2-3-1, but with two attacking full backs. Too early to predict the personnel for me. I would like to steal Tom Heaton if Pope is ahead of him at Burnley and bump Kasper down to 2 here.

    The team let itself down at the end of the season. Claude partially to blame and the players also, the old guard especially mixed with a bit of bad luck in injuries and suspensions. Finally the downtooling players won't get a chance to do it a 4th time as the board can see we need consistency in the managerial chair. Even Claudio only had 18 months. I was one furious with Puel after Palace. I was calling for Marco Silva to be instated immediately. With hindsight the club needs a long term manager and we have an experienced one now after "amateur" Shakey. Give him a summer to weed out the surplus and get in quality and bed in a more possession based style he likes. As fans we need to get behind the team and the manager this summer and come out with a bang in August.

    Overall the owners have verbally said they are behind the manager. He has had 7-8 months with the squad and has probably played every player in the squad at some point. I expect he is going to stay. He is in a better position than a new man coming in post World Cup with little time to assess. Maybe the penny finally dropped that his tippy tappy possession based game isn't the English league and we are working towards a happy medium. Give him the summer and let him bring his own players in. He can do no worse than Claudio and his recruitment in season two.

    Tottenham away pre-match

    Let's hope for much of the same in terms of tempo and style. Based on what we have, I would go: Jakupovic Benny Morgan Maguire Fuchs Choudhury Silva Mahrez Iheanacho Diabate Vardy Subs: Hamer, Knight, Hughes, Gray, Barnes, Thomas, Ndukwu.
