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

We'll be looking for better than bit part second division players.

A great shout. Would be a top signing.

1x left back.
Forgot we've got a right back on the way.
Mings, Hause and one more (hopefully Axel). 
A holding mid.
I can't see it happening but I'd consider Whelo for a one year deal to have in reserve.
2 wingers (El Ghazi and another. Albert will go I think).
Tammy (I'd probably keep Kodjia if we can. He's good on his day and that unpredictability may prove useful).

I would worry about buying too many. That isn't always the best way to go. So for me, getting 4-5 of our loanees on permanents boosts the squad and eases transition. 5 more on top to improve the starting lineup and we're golden I think.

I think weíll struggle to get Tammy and Tuanzebe. Smithís only had one window so heís onky just starting to imprint his style so I think a big change is inevitable.

Spare a thought for Ross McCormack today who is apparently in line for a pay increase due to our promotion.

Presumably the same applies to Tishibola & Gary "Bluenose" Gardner?  It is the price we were always going to have to pay for promotion.

Micah probably does as well. As galling as it is that they get a bonus, i'm fucking glad that they are.

I would have thought that any contract changes come in on July 1st, so he misses out, please God!! Would be so undeserving, just like Toss McCormack.

As he is contracted to us the season we won promotion it's likely he'll get a bonus as well.

Abraham has been anonymous in the 3 big play off games in truth. He is a bit of a flat track bully in the championship and won't do enough for the team in the premier league to justify 30 million IMO. We will though need 2 strikers that are capable in the top division. Lets hope the scouting department have found them!

Mings and Tuanzebe should be first 2 in, but United won't let Axel go I don't think. Centre back that would leave us with Mings, Hause and Chester. We need one more right sided one that can play the ball. Axel was brilliant today, and will be a big miss, the lad is top drawer.

Left back is a must! Need a starting left back.

Right back - Hutton will go, Elmo will probably stay for a year but be a bit part. Gilbert will be likely start. Bree will almost certainly be sold. That Justin lad from Luton looks well worth it for a utility full back.

Holding midfield - IMO we need 2 here - athletic and technically capable. Keep Whelan as a squad player too. Let Jedinak go.

Attacking mid - Desperate for a Jack alternative - need to shift Lansbury.

Wingers - El Ghazi should be signed. We then need 2 wide options with pace. Green should be found a championship club that will start him every week for a loan. Adomah should be given a fond goodbye.

Agree with most of that.

The only things I would differ on are I would pay the money for Tammy. He's 21, has a career record of 53 goals in 111 games already and will only get better. Secondly, I think we will get Axel back on loan. United will be under pressure to make big name signings, regardless of what the fans want.
