Think we can all agree a gk, lb and a st are a must hopefully pantillimon and Marriott but not too sure for lb Max Clark doesn’t exactly excite me but I’d rather any lb than Osborn again out of position this season but apart from these what other positions do you think we need to strengthen? Personally I believe we need another cm for cover and if possible should sign 2 strikers as Marriott is somewhat a risk if we do get him by injury or just not living up to potential in the championship.

I think that will be the minimum, if rumours are to be believed, we're going to decimate our current squad. 18 certificate needed, it could get messy.😁

i agree Nffcrich 2 strikers would be good. if be all for trying to get vydra in as well as marriott. apparently derby would be happy to sell for 7mil which is very good value for money considering the amount of goals he scores

You see this is where i get a bit twitchy. If we can get vydra for 7 mil then surely that’s the signing to make. The two Portuguese lads aren’t strikers and for that amount of money it just feels like we should be targeting the weak areas. I’d sooner We spent 13 mil on two prolific strikers . I’m in full support of the club in whatever they do it just seems an odd strategy. Perhaps it’s based on selling the Portuguese player on for a massive prophet. I see little prospect of us signing those two and a couple of 5 - 7 million strikers, that can’t be realistic, can it?

My thoughts exactly mate. two good strikers would go a long way.

2star, I see where you are coming from but with reports saying Marriott has been told we are going to make a push for promotion if the club are going to spend so much for the creative players then why not for the finishers. There is no point in having chances created if the are not be put away often enough.

These forwards could be available for right money
Marriott ings Defoe bamford hernendes
Rhoades kodiga hogan Britt soudani. To name a few.
We defo need to sign 2. i'd go Marriott looks good but might struggle to step up. And I'd go for Danny ings over his injuries but will never get in Liverpool team.
He ripped championship up when at Burnley.
Maybe loan with view to permanent.

Im sort of with you 2 star .
We do need a striker but vydra?
He's not prolific anymore and don't think he could play the lone ranger role.the villa boys Kodja especially could do that job better and villa are in no position to haggle over money.

With the huge some of cash being banded about I would like to see us go after a top quality goalie,15m Tom Pope?

The problem I see with these wishful targets, is not the fee but the wages they would expect. £7m for Vydra? £30k per week for 3 years? Plus bonuses? Is he worth a £12m+ punt? Not for me. The Mendes boys may cost more but lower wages and a much better chance of a sell on profit. Club owners and officials sorted, manager sorted, just need the playing staff to reflect the club and fans ambitions of PL. COYR.

With you on that 79. Definitely Kodja over Vydra.

Ings is probably on about £4M a year. We really can't afford that! LOL

Vydra not prolific anymore?! Didn't he just finish as top scorer in the league?! If he's available for 7 million I'd take him everyday of the week

A lot of it is fanciful Scouse. Probably the 50 mill figure for a start.
Good way of selling season cards though???
