Calm down. The window's open for two months yet.

And only Brighton, Chelsea, Palace and Man City have made any meaningful signings thus far, so it's not like everyone else is making big moves and we're sat here twiddling our thumbs.

We made our first 3 signings in the space of 11 days from the end of June to early July last summer - when we move we do tend to move quite quickly.

 

And Justin, the first one of those, was only signed on the Friday before the return to pre-season, a whole 6 weeks after the season had finished.

 

I would hope we get some movement next week, I think it would be a good boost to have at least one new face in for pre-season. Patience is needed more than ever in such a strange market.

I would think we need to see if some of our players are moving on before we can move on our targets, I don't think we're in a position to keep signing players to do nothing but take a wage

We’ll need a bigger squad because of the European competition next season.  Our players were on their last legs last few games as it is...

Ah, the old defence of 'I was only joking' having said something crass.

 

Risible.

It's the classic backtrack!

Not sure we do. You need to remember that our squad includes (and currently pays) Slimani, Silva, Amartey, Kaputska, Ghezzal, Diabate. That's about £300k p/w.

 

If we shifted them and got Eduoard, Benrahma, Sarr, Demirahl, we'd be salivating over our squad, and barely paying any more p/w. 

 

It's easy for us to forget the dead wood, but less so for the club's accountants!

It's mad that we have that many players who we need to shift - all who could be first teamers at a decent level. Such a shame Slimani and Silva didn't work out, while Amartey has been blighted by injuries.

Possible Championship loan for Iversen would be excellent. Love to see him keeping proving himself at higher levels.

Mid table Championship could be a great shout, level where he's getting tested regularly to see if he continues to develop.

How many players do we have on the books who could be considered senior players, 35 perhaps? 

How many players can we register, is it 25? I'm not entirely sure whether you get more with Europe. 

I get what you're saying about the squad but it's about quality of depth rather than quantity, and with that comes bigger wages per player which probably means we need to offload players like slimani, silva, Ghezzal, diabate, Amartey as with their wages gone it probably gives us better scope to go for better players

Would be a good loan move, interesting it says expensive loan.

Intrigued he’s put ‘expensive loan’ have we given him a huge rise with that new contract?

Southampton, Crystal Palace and Leicester are all interested in signing Grady Diangana from West Ham.
 

[Sunday People]

Had a good season at West Brom on loan didn’t he? Wouldn’t be surprised to see him in their first team next season
