    Then they need realism, if you as an owner, want progression year on year, you dont sell your best players and not replace them. Mahrez isnt replaceable of equal quality anyway, but at least try to replace the guy. If you stand still in the summer, you actually move backwards because other teams are strengthening, some quite significantly. I am also concerned with our form at the end of last season, it was relegation form, remember the peter taylor era when that happened? With our squad as it is right now and also looking at our poor pre season schedule, I would consider top 15 a success. We have gone backwards significantly since the title win.

    they will just leave if they prove good in the league, so wouldnt be a solid core moving forward.

    Mahrez replacements

    Selling mahrez and not signing a replacement, if that doesnt get a DoF sacked I dont know what will.

    Most of our transfer business seems to be about prioritising young players with potential, the sort of thing that makes a profitable transfer policy and makes the club money, but these young players if they prove good will leave the club as they will be at an age that is prime for the vultures, thats the problem with out current transfer policy. We definitely need to target some 28-31 year old players then we can improve the squad without worrying about the players leaving.

    Agreed also, a unknown is better than someone who has already been underwhelming.

    I did manage to get £25 on at 11/10 bit less favourable than the 6/5 after they verified my documents, but couldnt bet more due to £25 deposit limit set on account and needing to wait 24 hours to raise it. Now today the next day odds have tumbled to 4/6.

    Less than a month till the transfer window shuts!

    Also I wouldnt call it great when we have lost our best player, even if brought in 10 players, we lost mahrez, let that sink in, we lost mahrez.

    It would be a reasonable window if the team finished last season on a high, but it didnt. Teams we looking to compete against like everton and west ham pushing for top half of table. The creative CAM is very young and as such very high risk I feel, definitely needs to be another attacking player signed. New CB ok signing. New RB good signing. Probably also need at least one more winger, keeper and a striker. Silva has been very underwhelming for me, I like Iborra, but if he isnt favoured then we also need another midfielder.

    I tried to place a bet but seems sky bet want me to send them documents to reopen my account. What a hassle apparently its now law to require documents to be sent to use a betting account now.

    My opinion is based on how recent form has been. Basically our form was disastrous end of last season, meaning the combination of manager and players was not working for whatever reason. We have kept the manager, this means an overhaul of players which so far has not happened.

    Another youth signing made, seems our policy is clearly to target very young players with the odd exception here and there.

    The starting salary at man utd offered would probably be 6 figures, I dont think it would stop his head been turned alone but it might make him sign a new contract if its combined with a "we not selling you anyway so you may as well take the wage increase" which would then fend of interest and stop paper reports until next summer.

    Losing kante was fatal. He was one of the 3 most important players, kante, vardy and mahrez. We had championship winning form before he came in the team but half of those games we had cambiasso, and the other half we were playing with more offensive play which claudio was not willing to go back to, he trie dto keep kante tactics after we lost kante which lost our momentum. Once the momentum was lost confidence etc. spiralled and we dropped back down to a level more like out historical level. With that said I think we could have made better transfers tho yes. What I have recognised is that if you want success building a team from young players is very difficult, very young players need to be groomed and primed and before they get there will have inconsistency and poor decision making. Players in prime age lets say 24-28 tend to have heads turned very quickly and if they perform well may be gone after only 1-2 seasons to a bigger club. I have noticed we have managed to keep players like shinji and vardy for longer, and the saving grace has been their age, its diluted any interest in those players. So for me we should be targeting 28-31 year old players and we will get the maximum good years out of them depending on when they start declining. I know this is a lack of future proofing type policy, also not great financially as resell value be loss making, but would be the best strategy for a club like ourselves to win more stuff. Otherwise to keep the best 24-28 year old players at the club obscene wages would need to be paid.

    How old is he? I feel we need to sign 28+ year olds, because if they too young they need to be improved before they consistent performers, if they at peak age, then after 1-2 seasons we lose them to bigger clubs, but if they 28+ when we get them, then the age puts bigger clubs off the players and we get more years out of them. The only downside of older players is they less profitable as they are unlikely to be resold for a profit.

    In list is underwhelming, I hope our business isnt done.
