Get promoted and Qsi or 49ers money coming.
Honestly though can you see other teams in the Championship having a better chance of staying up than us? We are the best team in that league by a county mile

Couldn’t agree more - best team in the league by a mile.
If we invest in the right areas I reckon we’d be fine - if we do get promoted that is…

Aston Villa done the same, actually spent more than we did and looks like they could potentially be coming straight back down

I was never happy what our owners did RE transfers when we last got promoted, we left it far too late in the window, more or less majority of our transfers were done on deadline day, splashed the cash on a few who didn't have any Premier League experience or knowledge of the English game and it just completely ruined the team spirit we nurtured from the previous season going up including a 23 game unbeaten run

We never signed up the players who we had on loan who helped us go up (apart from Mitrovic), we should have kept all of them, kept that team spirit together, they would have all known each other and how to play and then just add maybe 3/4 with added Premier League experience

Sheff Utd kept majority of their promotion side together and didn't spend big and their on the verge of European football ffs and one of our loan's who helped us get up is with them now and doing a sterling job, gutted

Tony Khan, head of transfers and director of football (owners son) does all this algorithm stuff they do in NFL (our owners also own Jacksonville Jaguars) and implement that algorithm stuff into our transfers, i hope he learnt his lesson last time out and IF we go up then keep the squad together! If it ain't broke, don't fix it… (but maybe tweak it)

We have a good team and Beilsa will keep them together, just need a couple of key players in the right areas. Vila should never have got there in the first place and they spent silly money on poor choices when they did.

The way he dived AFTER the ball had gone in was the sort of move you see from five year olds.

you will be saying goodbye to him in a year or so, that could be on loan to Reading depending on how Roy plays him but more likely as he goes to a top 4 team.

Class for Rangers - will prolly be above par for Palace too assuming he gets a run in the team.

He will. We will sell zaha by October as he wants to go. Townsend crap for us last season. Lots of Palace fans and even some academy players tweeting Andros to give up the no.10 already which was a bit naughty. He blocked every one of them Laughing out loud

seen they are looking at Bright as well. need to get these outgoings sorted asap so we can get settled.
Pleased Amos has signed and some good business with the lad from Scotland. Thomas sounds promising too but in desperate need os some quality at the back.
