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

Iíve been confident Iíd us spending a lot this summer for a while. I think youíre right our net spend will about that. We will also likely ship out players in the domestic window; likes of Lansbury, Jota, Nyland. Players that it will made clear are not part of the PL squad when itís finalized. We wonít get a lot for them but we need to trim the excess.

Arsey he may be, I would still take Rose on loan at left back. Upgrade on Targett defensively and potentially going forward.

Another striker/ winger is a must if we let Samatta go. All eggs are in the Watkins basket, with no backup. Traore can play down the middle so could be the option, but we are light.

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

£77m spent so far, I'd be surprised if it wasn't £100m.

I think we need another centre midfielder. I like hourihane, he seems to wear the shirt with pride and has a good free kick on him. Saying that I donít think he should be regularly starting, which I think he might be unless grealish moves into the middle, which is too attacking for me and may expose us. If grealish stays on the left, the midfield 3 are Luiz, McGinn and Hourihane or nakamba, think nakambas a trier, but bit of a headless chicken.

So with attacking options of grealish, Watkins, Traore, with Davis, Trez and el Ghazi supporting, I think a cm should be a priority.

Couldn't possibly comment at this stage, though you might want to check my other half's Twitter follows.

Agree with this. Really need an upgrade on Nakamba. I see Luiz playing more as a number 8. Box to box, and offers a lot going forward so you donít want him to sit in front of defence.
