Botman: 20-30 million * a lot of the other young players we should target would be about that price range as well. I like Schurrs at Ajax also. 

 

Lamptey: 35 million - English tax but a proper player. Genuine cover for Trent and possibly cover in other positions.

 

Maddison: 70 million: Arguably a better player than Grealish and definitely a sounder lad. A lovely player.

 

A top forward/winger: Might be very expensive but absolutely essential.

 

Gini replacement: I like that Grovenbach lad at Ajax. Probably not cheap though as he is very good and only 18/19. Maybe a double swoop for Schurrs and him. I doubt Ajax are loaded. Tielemans would be a great addition but he is probably near 100 million.

 

That would be the dream summer. If we even did half that this summer, I'd feel happier.

And all of those lads would come whether or not we're in the Champions League next season with the exception perhaps of a top forward or winger. 

 

I've been banging the drum about Lamptey for a while. Quality player and gives us the option of Trent in midfield.

We need to be finding these players when they go for £7m, our scouts are shite.

If we do that, you'd have people complaining we buy unproven. We (usually) buy players who have shown a certain standard, and rightfully so.

Yeah Dave. Really realistic targets. Having said that I would say there is only a handful of players out of our reach if we don't have Champions League. We as a club, our team( I know I know) and Jurgen are a massive draw to players.

I'd take Grealish over Maddison every day of the week. We cant afford either so it's a moot point. 

Rate Grealish so highly but nothing in it for me Bobby. Maddison shades it because he seems sound, though I think we need a few knobheads around our choirboys. We can afford both - issue is FSG spending the cash and whether Jurgen would buy them. I can't see Jurgen liking Grealish as a person and that is s big thing with who he signs.

Lamptey is a wonderful player but there's no way we're moving Trent from right back without blowing up the entire system and starting again from scratch.

Competition Joe. Keep Trent on his toes and Lamptey could play in a few positions I reckon. I do reckon he would cost a lot though with the English tax.

Didn't Lamptey leave Chelsea to be first choice. 

 

Unless Mo goes and if he does the fee with be reduced due to global finances we are spending nowhere near that especially without top 4 finish

Why is Grealish considered a bad person. He looks like a twat but he's a superb player, he actually runs at and takes on players and he grafts. I dont want us to sign nice lads I want good footballers who improve us.

But surely we need to have a viable alternative to Trent? Neco Williams clearly isn't up to it. 

 

Lamptey would give Trent serious competition and allow him to play in midfield on occasion. God knows we could do with more dynamism in there.

Big reason why he left, but he's exactly the type of player we need to challenge the first team players. 

I agree about us being unlikely to spend that type of money but that would be a dream summer.

Sorry that's what I meant - he's a knobhead. You're right though. He loves the game and is a proper worker as well.

Some of our ‘ certain standard players ‘ have not done the job though have they.

I get your point but it would be nice to grab a Kante or two early wouldn’t it.

There was this same discussion when we signed Mané 5 years ago. "Couldn't we have signed him for 15m from Salzburg instead of 35m from Southampton". The reality is that waiting for a player to prove themselves and paying more of a premium is usually what big clubs do, and it's served us well these past few years.

Like I said it would be nice if we gambled occasionally rather than blowing fortunes. I understand how we have operated of late but that may not continue.

Yadda yada.

 

Current Chumps more like. I've seen more fight on a saturday in the Zinghari Vets league.

 

Forget last season, thats over now. Thats why Paisley, Fagan, Kenny and Shanks built a dynasty, because it was always about the now. Apart from us fans no one cares about last years League or the year befores Champions League, its about whats available now.

 

As for not having a clue, I played at a decent level, I played in the FA Cup, FA Vase etc and even at the lower end of the football spectrum it was ruthless and there was an expectancy to put in effort and sweat and fight for everything even if the team was struggling. If it wasn't rectified players where bombed out and eventually the manager.

Blert.

Even if we miraculously scraped top four and won the CL (neither will happen) we still wouldn’t spend serious money. 
 

Who are the freebies this year? Wijnaldum is leaving here, who else is out of contract around Europe?

Mainly players around their thirties:

 

Messi

Aguero

Sergio Ramos

Alaba

Draxler

Depay

Di Maria

Thauvin

Eric Garcia

Maksimovic

Javi Martinez
