Roy is not going to start blooding youngsters up front or at right back. You have to give him some level of credit over AWB, but let’s have it right, he got his chance... by chance. We had no one else.

Actually, the one area we could’ve started giving youth a chance (and I was hoping we would) was, ironically, central midfield. No chance of that either now.

A truly pathetic window.

Absolutely right, Dreher and Flanagan seem to be our main prospects but instead we'll be helping another player at the wrong end of his career recover from a leg break.

All I can say is that I hope Richard Shaw works some magic with a few youngsters - when injuries hit, we might need another young right back, left back, striker...

Our lack of funding is only half the problem, all the other teams around us have invested in far better players then we have, in fact we only spent £10.5m.
and that was a wast of money on players we didn't need and one of those is completely useless as striker.

I bet we announce a squad of 23, leaving a couple of non contract options.

I don't think we have more than 23 players available anyway

Where is your “outgoings” chat now buddy?
I thought you’d be happy, all that money we saved on transfers can be invested into our infrastructure, just like you said. We’ll get that new stand you talked about too. High fives Steve & Dougie. Simply brilliant....

That position is unchanged. Infrastructure and enhanced non-TV revenue remain the critical needs for this club.

However, so does staying in this league. When I posted that I thought we might get a decent striker; but I was 100% positive we would get one of the numerous RB candidates we were linked with. And who were we chasing last minute? A striker!

Unless we have another jewel in the academy, I am joining the doom-sayers for this season.

Thre's still the winter transfer, so Batshuayi coming then after only playing a few minutes for Chelsea should save the season.

As long as Zaha stays we should be ok. Exactly like last year, same players. Harder start probably without a good striker, but a beter one will come in the second part of the season.

Just AWB missing. Important right back, but team could do similar with Ward/Simpson there. Hopefully.

Real downfall will come once Zaha is sold, as clearly the board has no idea how to do transfers and this team will drop to the Chanpionship and maybe even to League One without a proper Zaha replacement, with the current scouting team's transfers.

Hopefully Camereras and McCarthy will add attacking and defensive substance to midfield, but having to carry on with Ward and maybe Simpson as RB is asking for a lot of trouble and assumes we are in a rescuable posittiin by January and that Zaha will be sold - a lot of assumptions there

The window would look less terrible if we signed an out of contract striker.

Balotelli is available I think.

He has a nightmare temperament but is still a quality player who would score goals regularly providing he remains disciplined.
If we could lure him, it would be a masterstroke.

the guys toxic don't want him near this club that is why he has no current club awful attitude.

only reason you bring him in is if you really do want to destroy dressing room.

Great news, Luka extended to 2023. At least we've got that!

I have to disagree.
He did well for Marseille and he would only be around for a season.

You know what you are getting and he knows you know.

People are moaning/questioning why didnt we get a RB in the 'window' & rightly so. Now i have no idea where this U23 lad plays but saw him in a pre-season game & the last ditch & clean tackles he made reminded me of Obi-wan, his nam Tyrick Mitchel.

I like the look of him, he's fearless, pacey & tough. I also am aware that he wont ever get given a chance hey ho

Could be mistaken but think Mitchell is a left back? But by all counts looks a decent player for the future
