Recruiting to the 18-25 places in the squad ain't easy.
We've lost
Mandana nobody yet
Fryers. Contributed zip we have cover
Ledley. Loftus cheek
Appia. Contributed zip lokila ?
Sakho. Jairo
Campbell. Needs replacing
Remy. contributed zip. Ladapo as 4th striker ?

We will get a new match day keeper but unlikely one to replace Hennessy.
We will get a match day centre back

How we attract central strikers to join us of note though will be incredibly difficult unless they are virtually guaranteed one of the births alongside wilf and benteke.............hoping for a knock down van persie and news that Wickham will be back in the fold and whom will be an important player for us this coming season

Read a comment from someone on Holmesdale saying we have got 2 loans in and one permanent .The 2 loan signings were basically bit part players at Chelsea and Man Utd and the permanent was just a squad player last season with Ajax . Has he a point ? ( personally I am happy with all 3 as long as we do get a bit of experience in as well )

A little disappointed we haven't been able to get a couple more deals done but not too worried as i trust the club know what they're doing.
I will judge at the end of the month when hopefully 2-3 more will be done.

Bit players? The two loanees are both highly thought of young players who can't currently break into their star filled parent club's first 11.

Yeah he has a point.

We signed on loan a young bit part player from the team who bossed the most competitive league in the world.

We signed on loan a young bit part player from a team that won the Europa league last season.

We signed permanently a young player from a team that were runners up in the Europa final last season.

Its probably not good enough if we are a team trying to win the title and win European trophies.

Happy with the 3 signings so far added to that happy that we have kept our best players - that is a plus Wilf, Cabaye etc. (at least kept them so far). That's all positive, but we all know we need more striker options and a better keeper

The expectation of landing top notch signings all in one window is a little strange. It is about progression. The players we sign now will improve us and hopefully give us a steady season to build on even further next season. Also, which many have forgotten, we bought many players over the past 4 seasons (quantity over quality) - hoping that they would be just good enough to keep us up - until we progressed to level we are now. These players contracts are starting to end and they will be replaced with better players over the coming seasons. Evolution.
This is a scenario that clubs like Burnley, Bournemouth, Watford, etc. and the newly promoted teams (if they stay up) will all face over the coming years.

Thrilled about Wilf's extension, good loan signings, and Riedewald.

Surprised no movement on a keeper, forward, or RWB/RCB (depending on who plays where).

Like the versatility and potential in our one permanent signing, and the loans. And hopeful about DeBoer.

But...we have lost players, are apparently changing our system and style, and only spent about 8 million in transfer fees? And the season starts in 3 days?

Who plays up front if Benteke is injured? And we need a better keeper.

It was always going to be evolution rather than revolution this summer.

Getting rid of the bid part players, CYL, Sako and Mutch will be difficult due to them not getting such generous deals elsewhere

Really? What like last seasons summer transfer window? Even Parish has admitted we didn't do enough. We had one recognised left back & when he got injured all we had was a league 1 standard player as back up. Now it looks like we're making the same mistake again with our one & only striker.

Drive carefully CB!

Spending so much in January hasn't helped. Surely there has to be some sensible limit on what a club like ours pays out on new players in the space of about eight months? As fans we are all guilty of expecting/demanding to see new additions coming in but at what price? It's 10m to 15m for 'average' Premier League players nowadays. Quality ones? 20m plus? All well and good if your team survives, but if not, potentially the road to ruin when you're back in The Championship with a diminishing chance of getting back to the Premier League again if you miss out first attempt.

I agree. The quality of the players that we have added is excellent but with a lot of contracts expiring we still have work to do. If there really is a tight budget constraint then it could be tricky

On Sky yesterday they were saying that the average cost of a Prem player is 19 mil in this transfer window. The Neymar deal has wider consequences for all of us. Dortmund now want 135 mil for Dembele & they only paid 13 mil for him last summer.

The reason we spent so much in Jan was because we didn't address positions of need in the summer. Either we're skint or just not learning from previous mistakes?

It is concerning that the obvious areas needing strenghtening have not been addressed yet, one presumes that there is a very good reason for this.....

Why is it that virtually every other club in the league has strength in depth up front when they know they won't all play? It's a squad game and you need competition for all places. It's not healthy to have one for striker. Bournemouth have four, even Watford have Deeney, Gray, Okaku(?) and that new 12m Brazilian who is very highly rated (Ricarlison?).

We need striking options desperately. I'm amazed we haven't sorted this yet - I know Remy and Campbell added nothing last season but we got lucky. Can't rely on that again necessarily.

Both Benteke and Remy came in late August last year. Up to that point we only had Wickham and Campbell.

We are in a better position this year than last because we have a quality striker to start the 1st game.

You should do PR for palace mate! Or the North Koreans. :-)

I get what you're saying but we are one more season on in the PL and we shouldn't have one fit senior striker two days out from the start of the season. You can't tell me that is good planning. Why is it that Watford for example have significantly strengthened their forward line and we haven't?

One injury to Benteke and we're in big trouble. Poor from the club on this one, as they have been poor on sorting the keeper problem.
