What I Think We Need...

Monday 20th June 2011
Now that we have a new manager in place in the form of Martin Jol (still gutted it isn't me), we need to address the issue of summer transfers. We have long needed cover in a few areas, and with Europe looming once again (for the 3rd time in our history) we need it more than ever.

Left Back:

We need a left back.  With Salcido most likely on his way out we need an adequate replacement.  With Konchesky repeatedly rumoured to be heading back to SW6, would we take him? Well, he didn't exactly leave in a big mess, he simply tried to move onto bigger things and it backfired, much like Sir Woy did.  Showed time and again he could do a job for us.

Right Back:

Again, a right back is needed.  With the iconic John Pantsil also likely to be on the move this summer, we need cover for Chris Baird. We are being linked at the moment with Alan Hutton, and he is someone I would definitely take.  Superb going forward, solid defensively, just what we need.

Centre Midfield:

With Danny on his last legs and Zolly looking likely to leave  we need a quality playmaker in the middle of the park.  Someone I'd like to see at the club would be Kevin Strootman from Utrecht, or Javier Marquez from Espanyol.

Attacking Wingers:

Someone to take the burden off of players like Dempsey.  Possibly could move Dembele to the left and get a striker in to accompany Bobby.


Someone like Pablo Osvaldo would suit me.  Top quality striker to take the load off of Bobby, who is able to bring others in to play as well.

The kind of team I'd like us to play next season would be something like this….



Hutton Hangeland Hughes Konchesky

Dempsey Etuhu Strootman Dembele

Zamora Osvaldo

Billy Murphy
