seems likely Samatta is on his way out. I would be surprised if we donít get another striker in. Wes not back until Jan at the earliest, so relying on solely on Watkins and Davis would be far too risky.

The physio/medicals guy has said 2 down and 1 to go on Twitter.

Come ooooooon Milot.

A name we can trust brilliant!

Rob Dorset of sky sports said  the business would be  5 signings of
GK ,
Right back
Winger
2 strikers. With at least one striker able to play wide forward.

As well as shifting a few out.

I'm wondering of the talk to the midfielder no 8 that some have mentioned .

Maybe that move I one that is more under wraps?




Hmmm iím sure he posted that comment when Martinez and Traore were done deals.

I too can comfortably predict our business to date will be a GK, RB, Striker that can play wide, Winger oh am i am fairly confident JG will sign a contract he signed a few days ago.


donít understand the 2 down but of the other Tweet, Traore and?? JG?

Guess its Martinez and Traore with one more to come. Given he appears to be a worker or somebody at Little Aston where they do the medicals, I'm guessing he only knows about deals quite close to completion.

Errm Bertrand Traorť is a striker who can play central as well as wide forward position .
So we are fine there now. Hopefully!

We've looked at getting players in who can play across the front and a lot of players now have a capabilities to play more than one set position so we will all find Traorť is also a 9 as well as player attacking wide forward.

I don't see us and way Dean Smith plays in for some  Mitrovic who can only play central and that's why he's brought in Watkins and Traore gives the team all sorts of options!

And keeps AEG from starting up front ever again ! Despite his best efforts ! He's merely a wide player. Whereas Olie and Bert are wide and central.

Hope that helps and it's exactly how Dean Smith plays his system to have flexibility and fluidity withing the front players as well as the squad .
Particularly in the offensive positions

i thought he predominately played RW, even if he can play central, him doing so means we go back to Trez or El G wife right.... thatís not something we want more than the odd game.

Iím still hoping for Edouard.

I donít really see LB as a priority. Targett is fine for where we are currently and Taylor, well, heís not terrible in that position.  We definitely need another striker/winger if not we definitely need a CM.  Really we probably need both.

Must get another central midfielder. PLEASE DEAN! We still lack defensive physicality in front of the defence. Really pleased with the business so far though.

I agree with those who say a CMF or CB would be better business than another forward / wide player ... lest we forget some of the defensive clangers of last season.
Attack is the best form of defence!

Can't agree re Targett. Dreadful defender, possibly the worst in the division defensively. If we had a strong defender there we could leave Jack further up the pitch.

This is where I'm at with it. I'd definitely look at bringing someone else in next summer, but think this year, it'll be more effective if we spend money on strengthening the spine.

we're the 17th best side in the league - which is about right for Matt Targett

I think we will spend over £100m. What do you think Ads? You still confident?

I reckon we will TV, although claw a bit back by flogging Samatta, Engels and Freddy.  Hopefully a couple of keepers too.

From where we are now (around £80m spend after Traore) we could spend another £40m (hopefully including Brewster if Tammy isn't coming) because we'll get more than £20m in from the sales of 5 players and still keep it around £100m net.
