Wouldn't mind us trying our luck with Rhian Brewster.

As wide options are our priority, Nkoudou from Spurs and Camacho from Liverpool would be ace additions to our squad.

Bit of an update for those who want it... woody has spoken with Klopp... Keane with Poch... wouldn’t be surprised to see first team fringe players on loan to us 

Woodgate also mentioned Brazil in his interview so wouldn’t be surprised if we tapped into that market should the right player become available.

Marcus Edwards is someone I'd like to think were asking spurs about if the rumours are true.

Couple of years ago poch compared him to messi. Flopped a bit when he was on loan with Norwich due to injuries and apparent attitude issues. Went out to Holland and got his career on track last season and was being raved about over there - most dribbles per 90 in the eredivese and 2nd most fouled - plays on the right or in number 10. Could be a good traore replacement finally.

Mikaël Debève...

Part of the one of the most 'heroic' Boro performances I've ever seen, in the FA Cup Semi Final at Old Trafford against Arsenal in the '01-'02 season.  Him, Luke Wilkshire, Robbie Mustoe and Allan Johnston going toe to toe with the team who won the double and arguably having the better of it ?

Not trying to claim this is the squad for the season by ANY stretch of the imagination. But, discounting unknown signings, and using the basis of the squad and more prominent youth we already have - maybe this is our starting point. (Fully aware that some best player positions are very much up for debate and that we'd need some additions)

Sell;
Gestede, Johnson & Braithwaite.

Squad;
GK: Randolph, Pears, Fryer.
CB: Fry, Ayala, Flint, Wood, Stubbs.
RB: Shotton, Spence.
LB: Friend, Coulson.
DM: Clayton, Liddle.
CM: Wing, McNair, Saville, Howson, Malley.
RF: Walker.
LF: Tavernier, Brahimi
ST: Assombalonga, Fletcher, Armstrong.

4-3-3;
------------------ Assombalonga ------------------
- Tavernier ------------------------------ Walker -
------------------- Wing - McNair ------------------
----------------------- Clayton ----------------------
---------- Friend - Fry - Ayala - Shotton --------
---------------------- Randolph ----------------------

I think we will see old targets popping up as clearly the recruitment team are back in charge where as last summer it looks like pulis took over control. 

I think the recruitment team have always been in charge.

Saville - tried to sign him before he moved to millwall.

flint - tried to sign him when monk was here.

McNair - don’t know if we had tried to sign him in the past but looked like pulis never rated him.

I have a hunch that Howson will have a massive season for us

I love Howson, have done since he was at Leeds, not someone I'd want us to lose.

The slightly concerning thing about that is that I don't think you can make a case for any of them being good enough to make the step up to the Premier League or for any of them having a higher value in the future.  McNair I'd make some allowances for as he just hasn't had enough football here to show what he's capable of in fairness.  So if the transfers were recruitment team lead then what exactly were they thinking when recommending and then pushing through the purchases of these players?  I feel like people there get fixated on certain names, whoever they might be, and then they become players who we almost have to get even if some time has passed.  Could be wrong of course but it has seem to happen a few times here recently.

we tried to sign Saville when he left Chelsea, but he chose Wolves

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
    • I so thought that this match was on at 5pm.  Let's hope my 2pm work meeting takes less than an hour.  (Or do I want the meeting to go on for ages so that I avoid seeing how rubbish we are?)
