The Rebuild

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, 25, forward Eddie Nketiah, 24, and midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, 23 are all being made available this summer but at what price?

Ramsdale is a good GK and like Deluded i would take him Smith Rowe to but again it would not be cheap to do these deals but if you are a BIG club you have to do deals that can improve the squad not just fillers.

The defence is a big problem right now(some people don't think so!)and needs some major work doing so where do you think we should be spending our money? and any bargains spotted that you think we should be looking at.

How about Keiran Tieney currently on loan from Arsenal. Always a good solid left back. Don't know how he has fared with injuries this season but could be available at a reasonable price.

But you do worry about his injury record and you no us they are fit and proper then get a sniff of Romford radiation and we all know how that ends

Coufal, Bowen and Soucek spring to mind, others like Hugill not so. I've already made a case for Notts County forward Macaulay Langstaff and who knows whether he will hack it in the top league, but I doubt we'd lose much money over him.
I think Ivan Toney has burnt his bridges at Bees and contrary to reports I don't think he'll be going to Arsenal so could be worth a look even if he is a bit on the ageing side.
Relegated clubs are usually a good hunting ground but pickings from these clubs look slim. Maybe Morris and Barkley from Luton although Barkley too is getting on a bit. I would definitley take a punt on Hudson-Odoi though from Forest.
We're all going to have our ideas and in my opinion, if Loopy really IS the new incoming then I think we can expect a load of unheard of foreigners, not necessarily up to Premier League rigours and/ or using us as the standard stepping stone to a "bigger" club to go and sit on a bench.

I think there are going to be a few unknowns through the door of the Spanish persuasion but nothing wrong in that as long as Tims done his due diligence on them and they are not bought in to appease the new man....as for Toney i'd love him at our club but £30 million is all he's worth......dont see Gooners Chelski after him maybe the spuds other than that strugling to see who else he would go to.

Alfie Doughty from Luton will be snapped up by a Premier League club. Good young English Left/wing back. With proven Prem experience this season. Must be worth a punt as cover for Emmerson and he would push him also for a place!!

Kilman and Neto maybe Cunha from Wolves. I would say with connections, these could come to fruition. Also Wolves are financially in the shit and need to offload!!

Yes, he's a latino pain the backside, rolling around on the deck, annoying refs etc etc..but

I think we will miss him and finding his replacement will be VERY difficult. Watching the game yesterday was typical, he makes more tackles and interceptions than James Ward Mouse and Slowczech put together. He is the main man for the visionary pass to create a chance, I think Man City will be getting a real gem.

I really don't. Yes he has a wonderful vision for the pass but they already have players for that. They even let Cole Palmer go and I think he has more in his locker than Paqueta. He loses the ball too cheaply and Pep won't like his little flicks and shimmies that don't come off, followed by the writhing in agony act. On the other hand....... they do like a little diver don't they. Grealish, Stirling.....

.. regarding losing the ball cheap but I think Pep will beat that out of him and take him to the next level. Divers, Sterling is gone and Grealish is history at city. Wouldnt mind him coming to West Ham as part of that deal, imagine an attack minded coach with Squeelish and Kukos allowed to run at defences! I will renew the season ticket now!!!

Cole Palmer is an odd one particularly with the FFP rules, which in fairness was more important at this stage for Chavski rather than City. From Peps perspective, he was unproven, 19 appearances, didnt pull up trees and no goals so... £40M looked like a good deal. However, the kid is a star, 31 appearances for Chav, 21 goals, albeit pens but taken coolly under extreme pressure and 2 England caps. Not sure Pep, or in fairness anyone saw that!

I think he is overated and certainly in the last few weeks every time he lost the ball he was falling all over the place and was almost looked like he Wanted an apology for taking the ball of him!
I don't think WHU will miss him and if we get 75 mill we should take the money and run he is going to end up like Phillips.

For finishing 9th if if Pacman goes for the £85million release clause then i would love us to Make kudus an offer to rip up his contract and release clause in it and start the rebuild around him Alvarez & Bowen.
