Sign a Keeper!
In the oneBoro poll, we asked which position you think needs strengthening before the start of the season. There is a clear winner; you guessed it, a goalkeeper!
66.9% of you feel that we need a new goal keeper to replace Mark Schwarzer who left for Fulham. Gareth Southgate has stated several times that he will stick by Brad Jones and Ross Turnbull, which has caused concern over the pre season. It seems Ross Turnbull will start against Spurs on Saturday, but is he good enough to keep out the likes of Bent, Bentley and Berbatov?
Midfielders, George Boateng, Lee Cattermole and Fabio Rochemback have all left over the summer and 20.42% feel that we need to strengthen the position. Southgate has brought in Digard, who looks like a class player, and young Marvin Emnes a skilful midfielder who is able to take players on, with an eye for goal. James Harper is still a possibility target for Southgate.
9.15% feel that the Defence needs to be improved, however with the sale of Luke Young to Aston Villa in the past few days, this percentage may be higher had the poll being continued.
Finally, 3.52% feel we need extra strength upfront.
You can still vote on ways oneBoro.co.uk can improve and keep an eye out for a new poll over the next few days.
