Agree with the latter, not so much about the first bit though.

The squad needs beefing up so badly, we need at an absolute minimum of 4 players and that's without the inclusion of Ayew.

We must be the only league club trying it, and it will obviously never work !
Perhaps he is trying to see if any of our 'strikers' can actually score goals! Wickham and Sorloth, in my opinion, will never make EPL main strikers (including Benteke, 3 strikers = 3 goals in the entire season) and now there is a rumour we are looking at Ayew who was never outstanding at putting the ball in the net for us! Can we not sell those two and put the money towards a proven class striker. Everybody else seems to be picking up strikers who regularly knock in a good number of goals but us, well we will stick with those who just have not proven themselves at EPL level. Sorry for the rant but I suspect like many other supporters we just never seem to move for anybody! I know, have faith, but we need a new right back, a striker who can score and possibly a new winger. Just saying.

Two attacking/flair/goalscoring incomings needed, and soon.
Errr the only first 11 player is Conner and he's debatable until he comes through preseason successfully. Then two players who may or may not make a match day squad then a load of u23s showing exactly why they are u23s. Least they are getting some match experience with the first team coaching staff.

Two good full backs, a Cabaye type in centre mid and a proper striker and I still don't think we'd be pushing for Top 7. Maybe 8th/9th. The squad isn't deep enough with quality to sustain that for me given the likelihood of injuries to Sakho/Tomkins.

You'd have to get incredibly lucky with injuries to get anywhere near 7th.

The point is still the same though, without Wilf we have Andros and that's it. No Sako or Punch wither to poorly cover a wing position.

If this was the entire first team I'd agree but it's barely the third choice team out there. If any of the kids are hoping to break into the squad then they better hope they seriously improve.

If Ayew signs then that is cover for the second striker role and a wide forward. I'm sure we will bring in another winger/wide forward and a striker. What we really need is a midfielder with Cabayes range of passing and intelligence and even better an RLC replacement to go with Max.

Having a third choice keeper that prone to conceding 4 goals against this level of opposition is a bit of a worry though haha. Especially given Guaita and Hennessey are vulnerable to injuries.

Not looking good though is it? You might have hoped that Jairo, Wickham and Sorloth would be better than this and that some of the youngsters would be staking a claim. Looks like a big couple of weeks for Mr Parish, Mr Alexander and Mr Freedman to strengthen the squad.

Away from the gloom and doom of Barnet I'm watching a thrilling U-19 girls' Euro Championship match between France and Scotland! France are leading 1:0, as you were.

This side has 3 signings in. If we got lucky and they stayed fit as per Leicester when they won PL you would expect them to finish in top 5-7. Maybe unrealistic to get Thuram (25) and Brahimi (available on a free), but not beyond the realms of possibility (we are a PL team, 23rd? biggest in the world who have finished between 10-15 in the past 5 seasons)
