    Reed, Sims and Hesketh wont be here next season and Boufal will probably get loaned out again. Can't see anyone spending £7m on Long or Forster either.

    Like the idea but a bit optimistic IMO.

    I rate all 3 of those, and Boufal could come good under Hass. If Redmond and JWP could, anyone could...

    Who knows, letís see. In my opinion an investment of around 15-20m net could achieve above squad.

    Long might not score but he runs a lot and fast, someone could take him

    Redmond has looked much improved. JWP seems to be having one of the purple patches which have occasionally dotted his career. Whether it turns into something more long term remains to be seen.

    All it really proves is that those two individuals have looked better under Ralph. It has no bearing on Boufal or anyone else. Long if anything has looked even worse. Austin and Elyonoussi look as poor as ever and Stephens is still a howler waiting to happen.

    Ralph isn’t a miracle worker who can make anyone ‘come good’.

    We'll still have the likes of Long, Austin, Forster and Stephens here next season because we pay them all far more than they're worth.

    Boufal, Carrillo, Clasie, Moi and Hoedt will all be hard to shift so expecting loan deals for that lot.

    We won't spend unless we sell a few.

    Forster will only go on a free and then we will probably have to pay half his wages as well

    Nice theory but in practice it's just not going to happen.

    The players the club will sell will be our better ones because they are the ones other clubs want. They should be able to find buyers for Bertrand, Lemina and possibly Hojbjerg in the summer. I guess the dream for the owners would be Redmond continuing his good form to bump his transfer value right up. We'll be stuck with the worst players until their contracts expire and they are released.

    If we go down we will be in trouble with an expensive but mediocre squad!

    Remind me again which of our best players we were determined to sell, against their will.

    Obviously, Hoj and Bertrand will be gone

    good luck in bringing in 5+ players good enough to start and drive us 5+ places up the table...
    never ever going to happen, if we stay up
