Bringing young kid in fm Northampton yet sending Armstrong out on loan.I know therewill be reasons and that is why I am not a manager/coach.

Would like to see a bit more movement over the weekend for another CB then use the start of the season to assess our requirements.

I know most will come on shouting striker but with Perez, Mitrovic and Cisse we have a reasonable front line all be it young and untested. With deJong and Gini in the centre with Cabella who could now be played as a genuine number 10 and with Colback and Sissoko I think that is a pretty good set up.

optemistic for this season. Top eight

And that is for starters Des we also need adding and pruning the 25 man squad
Perhaps after tomorrow certainly Southampton and the next 2 matches McLaren will see how desperately they needed

I am lost that he percerviers with Obertan and Gouffran
and with Tubby Mike only seeing numbers I am afraid no defender will be bought until Williamson is either given away or sold.

The squad is full of average/under performing plyers. I can't help but think that if we changed our position on transfers it would actually create a more valued squad.

I wonder what kind of impact a seasoned international defender like ron Vlaar or John Terry might have on the rest of the defence including williamson.

The same could be said for midfield where a player like lampard would have a massive impact.

Mike Ashley would flog more shirts and give the club a more global appeal from a brand perspective.

Whilst the squad need trimmed I think like all teams you need a balance, if you look at the impact KK had on the players around him at newcastle you do wonder wether we should be taking the plunge on an older player

I expect h'll go on loan immediately as there were a number of championship clubs after him as well. if not immediately then in January.

Is he any good.

Hope he is not the mystery striker we have been waiting for

Agree with Shearer looks like Sissoko on the way
so perhaps 1 or 2 players may be signed from the proceeds
because Fat a. e will not dig into the 5m first payment he has just received from TV & the other 25m he is sitting on.

See what happens against Southampton as they have had a good pre season with their first team unlike Newcastle playing poor teams and with our poor players.

50m from TV now and 25 M held back
It is the same story the players we need will only be signed
if we sall
Ashley's song I'll gp down with this ship rather tban raid my own money.
