Mings, Abraham, Hause on permanent.

Tierney from Celtic.

I will think about who else I'd like to see us sign.

Tierney is a great shout.

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.

we are going to need one hell of a rebuild if we go up, and if we don't, but that's for another day.

I believe a full scale rebuild would destroy the team togetherness - if we are patient (stop laughing at the back) - gradual quality replacements would be my preference.

but we have to when you consider how many are out of contract and how many are not good enough. To me it's inescapable that major squad work is needed.

Doing everything in one go will lead to the same result as Fulham. It needs to be a gradual build with the ones not up to it being eased first out of the first team picture and then in time out of the club.

Keep the five loanees (I know, big ask but at least I think El Ghazi and Hause will stay). We already have a new RB coming in. Buy a new, younger version of Whelan, a left-back. a winger and a substitute for Grealish. That's enough for this summer.

GK - Steer, Kalinic, Nyland
RB - Guilbert, AEH, Bree
LB - New Signing, Taylor
CB - Mings, Hause, Chester, Tuanzebe
CM - McGinn, Hourihane, New Signing, Lansbury, Bjarnesson
AM- Grealish, New Signing, O'Hare
RLW - El Ghazi, New Signing, Albert, Green
CF - Abraham, Davis, Kodija, Hogan, RHM

Lansbury, Bjarnesson, Albert, Kodija, Hogan - really??!
Abraham - whose PL credentials I'd question - will probably go back to Chelsea.
AEH is probably not good enough and will probably go to his pappa at Sheff Wed.

If we go up, we're into a major rebuild; it has to happen early in the summer and be based on team/squad-building rather than bringing a few random players in.

It's not Football Manager. We aren't automatically going to be able to sell every single player that the fans would like to. We're going to shed a lot of dead weight already through contracts being up.

Neither are we likely to bring in 15-20 players. The likes of Taylor, Albert, AEH, Kodija, Green etc should go from being first team players to back-ups. We need to be bringing in a few good quality first team players not bit-part signings who might make the bench.

If you'd question Tammy's PL credentials, I'd question why you think Chelsea, a club in European competition, are going to want him back.

 Bournemouth spent 13m on Bristol city LB today . My Contacts at the club suggest talks with villa re mings are ongoing but this signing should make it more likely than yesterday
Leroy fer captain of SWANSEA released today , wonder if we’ll go back in for him in the summer ?

Can't see us going back for Fer unless we go up. Would be good if we don't though.

Not sure what happened there!!  I meant to say, it would be good if we don't have to (go back in for Fer, as we go up!).  Silly old bugger (me, that is).
