The last thing SP wants to do is blow the budget (like Everton) and end up with a collection of skilled individuals who cannot function as a team.

Weíve persisted with Cabaye and McArthur and look how well they played too.

The current squad with three or four additions is the best we can hope for and when the best 11 gel on the pitch they can potentially beat anyone. RLC would be a great signing as well as a keeper and striker/attacking winger.

Itís the consistency which needs improving and I think it is going to improve now confidence is high.
The problem faced with this plan is there will be more than 4 of the current squad at the end of their contract this season. They will need replacing before you even look to upgrade some of the weakest areas in the squad. In the longer term we need to try and start getting fees for players rather than them being allowed to run down their contracts all the time.

From the top of my head we would currently lose at the end of the season:

Mcarthur
Cabaye
Ward
Delaney
RLC
TFM
Bakary Sako?
CYL?
Speroni

Thats an extensive list all who have been in and around the matchday but still hasn't allowed for upgrading Kelly, Ladapo or Mutch in the overall 25.

Sure but we should offer new contracts to some of those, Cabaye, McArthur,Ward as a minimum as they would still be able to do a job. Speroni would be a good back up keeper.

Itís the same adage as previous ďin Parish would should trustĒ. He didnít sign a second striker last window but now weíre all wondering whether Wilf can play there? Weíve got Benteke and Wickham back soon so do we go out and splash a huge amount of money on someone we cannot be sure will gel into the team? Missing out on Niasse may well turn into a blessing in disguise.

Excluding the FBD debacle (which he rectified v quickly), I reckon SP secretly knows exactly what he is doing! Despite a poor transfer record last summer I reckon we could get into the top half very soon.

Can't imagine Cabaye signing a new contract but Mcarthur and Ward possibly would. Though they would obviously demand improved terms as I would imagine they are amongst the lower earners in the squad so therefore tying up more of whatever budget is available. Really is a tricky juggling act so lets hope you are right and SP does know what he's doing!

What makes you think Cabaye wouldn't want to sign another contract? He's a great player and he gives the impression that he likes playing for us, so if the ££ is right, he'll stay.

Commanding keeper and matchday striker essential.

Its such a difficult one with Cabaye. If he did want a new contract with us (which I'm doubtful of) then he would surely want three years. He turns 32 in January and although he is a fantastic player for us do we really want the wage burden for another three years when he is likely to deteriorate? In an ideal world we would sign him on for another year but he will be looking for one big last contract. I think we might need to move on and find another Luka type buy.

I suspect Cabaye will be looking at getting big contract on America or China possibly.

He's going to be hard to replace but there is players out there, we could do a lot worse than Cairney at Fulham.

Luckily we now have a Sporting Director, whose job it is to make sure that we have players lined up for contact and possible bids accepted as soon as the window opens.

Our needs are clear and if we don't have a striker and keeper lined up for quick transfer early January, then what the hell has Doogie been doing?
