I suggest the likes of Aribo and James may not get done now!!  Priority is Tyrone Mings.

Interesting to see Purslow say that we’re a year ahead of schedule.

Nassef said they are highly ambitious and don't want to simply exist.  This will be an interesting summer.  Would like Hause and Mings, El Ghazi worth a squad place, but not so sure on Tammy or Axel.  Lots for Dean and Jesus to do.

Need a quality left back and an even better, solid central midfielder.

Axel was fucking exceptional today. Anwar and Mings are musts.

left back - midfield general - right winger - should do as a starting point while still keeping the team spirit alive

LB, Defensive Mid, Right Mid and Striker for me as priorities.

Have loved cheering Tammy on this season, but question mark is still out if he can make it in the Prem. Didn’t exactly set the world alight for Swansea, but not sure how much that was down to the team he was playing with?

Smith just been quoted that he and Pitarch will see our of contract players Wednesday and relevant loanee clubs will be contacted.
Harsh though it may seem on some, to improve, by nature of today’s selection , four or five of starting 11 from today become bench players and are replaced with better. Those 4 or 5 replace some of today’s bench players , and half a dozen of squad players will be moved on.
The names though ?

I think we need to be looking to get all the loanees permanently plus upgrades on Adomah, Green and Whelan (one of the wingers able to play either side), a new left back and an alternative for Grealish. So that's 10 signings, 5 of which would be new to the squad. Should be looking to offload Richards, Hutton, Bunn, Whelan, Elphick, Kodjia and one out of Adomah and Green, with a big thank you to all except Richards.

Depends on the prices.  I don't think Hause has done enough to convince.  And as well as they've done for us this season, I doubt whether AEG and Tammy will be anywhere near as effective in the Premier League.

Mings is the one I'd move heaven and earth to keep.  Axel would be nice but from what I gather Man Utd fans want him back.

Exactly. Time to reset expectations - anything less than Messi bought in as back up to Grealish, Van Dijk as back up to Ming's and De Gea as back up to Steer and I'll be disappointed!

What about going after that left back from Fulham? Joe Bryan I think 😉
