3 key things for me:
- Having another striker option (given Jesus is 21 and sergio has injury/gametime issues)
- Having a replacement for Fern (he's in his 30s and could probably benefit from being spelled - Fred seems like the option there)
- Having an option for KDB (Gundog/Bernado seem the...
Unal has had to move on as his loan this year. Zuculini was the same last year. Guidetti did well in Holland and was never seen again. And now Roberts goes to Celtic.

Yaya is lazy
Kun injury prone and should be sold
The beast is crap
Navas not good enough
Vinnie getting crap tonight I see
