Not so sure about Abrahams, good in this division but i have doubts he's good enough for the Prem.
Tammy needs to bulk up if he wants to play in the premier league. He would get owned by the likes of Van Dyke,Maguire, Tarkowski and the rest.

I thought exactly that too.A bit like Zaha has muscled up and seems to have improved as a result of it

What would people think to Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham? Already proved he's too good for the Championship and now he's had a taste of PL football he might be looking to get out. And he's only 19

Bigger fish are looking at him apparently.

Regarding Sessignon, a yes from me. Hes a very good player and has pace.

He wants to move to Spurs.

That's the problem with not being in the prem for a year. Let's say we'd gone up last year, had the takeover happen and then established ourselves, we'd now be in a good position to attract likes of Sess and Daniel James and build a young team like we did in 2007.

If we'd gone up last season we'd still have Bruce and Xia and Sessegnon would still prefer to go to Spurs.

Probably not the right thread for this but anyway....when you see Man. City signed Vincent Kompany for 8m in summer 2008 (last few weeks before they got the oil money) it shows the limited approach of MON's buy British policy.

So many hidden gems we could've signed and developed (Falcao and Cavani were young 20 year old strikers we were linked to in that time aswell).

If we're up this summer we should now have the people in place in the recruitment side to identify some of these young players in europe who are playing to good standard already.

There's a young Nigeria right winger at Villareal called Samuel Chukwueze who I watched v Real Madrid and Barca and he was brilliant in both games. Sort of player I'd like us to target and sign before one of the top 6 notices him, would be perfect for the prem with his direct play.

I doubt we'd still have Bruce but agree about Xia and Sessegnon.

I've not heard of the player SHQ but it's certainly a troublesome position for us with Albert and Green unable to make much of a difference.

There will always be young players around. I think these owners want to focus on young players and Smith's style of play will mean he will want to keep the average age down.

Think we need to see how next Monday pans out before we can start discussing potential targets.  Think there will be a stark difference in the type of players we are after depending on the result.

Absolutely, this thread is irrelevant right now. May as well lock it till Tuesday morning.

And we'd probably be looking at life back in the Championship now.

I would agree we must wait until we find out what league we are in before buying players because whatever league we are in will decide what type of player we go for.
