    Would be over the moon if our window finished like that.. if I were being greedy tho, I’d add a DM and a ST.

    A 4-4-2 that can easily change to a 4--2-3-1 same as above wa Eddy moving out left and also back up top

    Bain

    Rslston(new RB eventually replacing him)
    Ajer
    Jullien
    KT (hopefully stays)

    Forrest
    Brown
    McGregor
    Shved

    Eddy
    Thumb

    Subs
    A keeper
    Hayes
    Jozo
    Christie
    Henderson
    Johnston
    Bayo

    Also think a really strong bench , feel harsh on Christie but will be looking to start moving on wa him an McGregor replacing Brown

    Looking at the signings to date, those linked and those wanting away our squad could look like allowing for departures and possible signings:

    Bold are my first choices alternatives in order

    Bain
    Gordon

    Baldock Jullien Ajer Tierney
    Simpson Simunovic Elhamed Bolingoli


    Brown McGregor
    Bitton Sawyers


    Forrest Christie Johnston
    Shved Rogic Arzani
    Morgan Henderson Hayes

    Edouard
    Griffiths
    Bayo
    Departures:

    Hendry - Sold/Loan
    Ralston - Sold/Loan
    Miller - Sold/Loan
    Sinclair - Sold/Swap with Baldock
    Ntcham - Sold
    Kouassi - Loan
    Gutman - Loan

    back the core of the squad up with

    Connell
    Demebele
    Oko-Flex
    Hazard

    For me it would be:

    New GK - Bring in someone of international quality and experience if possible.
    Boli
    Ajer
    Julien
    New RB
    - hoping we spend a bit of cash to bring in someone solid.

    Brown
    Mcgregor
    Christie


    Forrest
    Edouard
    Johnston


    Subs:

    Griffiths
    Cifuentes
    - would spell the end for Ntcham if bought
    Hendo (loan to english championship or abroad if midfielder is bought)
    Jozo
    Bain
    Bayo
    (if fit)
    Shved - hopefully can kick on and achieve potential and challenge for a place
    Rogic - would consider selling for £8m +
    Ntcham - rotate with Brown if he screws the nut and decides he want to play. Would consider selling if money is right.

    Id expect everyone of the subs to get game time and to challenge for a place as soon as injuries/rotation happens. If Bayo cant stay fit he might need loaned or sold and another striker brought in, hopefully a target man type. We need depth for a european run and domestic games.

    All-time: Henrik / Current: KT
    *STARTER / Second-choice / Third-choice
    *Bold = new signing

    BAIN / Gordon

    NEW RB / Hatem
    AJER / Jozo
    JULLIEN / New CB
    TIERNEY / Boli / Hayes

    BROWN / New CDM / Bitton
    MCGREGOR / Ntcham / Eboue
    CHRISTIE / Rogic / Henderson

    FORREST / Shved / Morgan
    EDOUARD / Griffiths / Bayo / Loan ST
    JOHNSTON / Sinclair / Arzani

    I feel we still need 4 signings before the squad is complete. Middle to front we are strong but defensively we need to improve.

    This should start to take shape.

    From midfield to attack

    Brown
    McGregor
    Forrest
    Christie
    Johnson
    Eddie

    With hopefully a galvanised Ntcham, Rogic and griff chomping at the bit this looks strong.

    Sheved, Arzani, Bayo will be eager to impress when giving the opportunity.

    Even older pros Hayes, Morgan and Sinclair there to provide back up along with the younger core Dembele, Flex-Armstrong and Henderson.

    What is the situation with Eboue, is he fit?

    I'd still love a number 7, even if that meant moving on the older pros plus Eboue.

    Defensive is where we will see the biggest upheaval.

    If KT and Jozo both stay we need another right back and CB. I consider Hendry and Ralston gone.

    If we sell Jozo I'd still be happy with 1 replacement if it's Jullien quality replacement and have Bitton and Israeli as 4th and 5ft choice.

    Lenny won't move on the goalkeepers but I'd like Gordon moved on and a number 1 brought in.

    If the deals for Sinclair and Tierney get done if our window closed our squad would look like the above until January - if we make Europe Groups and the final of the League cup, that above would be needed to get us through Midweek - Weekend every week for 30 games!

    Aye exactly mate. I like the way you put it decent. Watching last night, I unfortunately can't see us getting past salvia Prague with what we have atm. We can't keep relying on Christie, Forrest and edouard for a full season. They need "help" :39::hi5:
