Robbie Keane would be a great signing if we could get him but can't see it. Keane and Carrol would be a good partnership.

Sadly in the climate we are in £25m is nowt but its better than i thought it would be. We need rid of Butt/Smith/Best and any other player that wont make the grade.

Thing is though will this amount be on top of the money we will get for Taylor when he leaves in the summer i doubt it.

Robbie Keane is on big wages and is on his way down, gone are the days we sign that sort, and rightly so, its a big reason for us being relegated in the first place.

Spent wisely £25mil will get us 3 or 4 decent players and a couple of squad fillers, its a fair enough budget.

We'll see if it happens though.

I don't know. I think transfer fees (man city aside) are going down. After what happened at Portsmouth owners are being carefull with their money. The trick is how we spend the money. I think Fulham are a good example of a well run club. If we are in their position in a year or two I will be happy.

£25mil to spend but we have to sell Taylor, Smith, Nolan, Best Jonas & Colo first!!

Would definately take Gamst Pederson.

There are fucking loads of decent players around.

We will be just as attractive a proposition as anyone outside of the European competitions, more so even, wage cap or not.

I reckon Colo/Guti will be gone in the summer, Just got a feeling about them wanting away now we are promoted.

He does get caught sometimes, but he always looks a threat is sharp as fuck, and isnt scared to have a go. He certainly wont be the worst winger in the division.

Think they will stay actualy to prove that they are premier league players. At least for one season. Unless Ashley forces then out of course.

We might as well give up if they sell Enrique, that would be a clear sign that we arent even trying to get a decent team together.

Harper, Enrique, Colo, Smith, Nolan, Carrol, Lovenkrands and Spiderman must be kept next season.

No Taylor?

I would prefer he stayed, but something has obviously happened behind closed doors and the apparent support that Carroll is getting surely means Taylor has either been let down, or has stepped right out of line.

It surely cant be a case of Carroll is fit, playing and scoring so he can do no wrong?

Nope. But we don't know the full extent of what happened yet so will reserve judgement on Carroll for the time being.

Nah i reckon if they wanted away, they would have left after our relegation. why bother hanging around.

He'd be a great signing. and i'm sure he'd relish playing in front of a bigger crowd.


Also if any team comes in with a £10mill+ offer for Taylor, i'd let him go. that kind of money could be used for a couple of players.

DS i reckon if someone came in for them they would have been away. Who could pay their wages especially what Colo is on.

Why the hell would we want to keep smith he hasnt scored for us in all his time here. He is a liability regarding his disciplinary record. Regarding Taylor if we were offered £10m for him id take it but its money going into Ashleys back pocket.

I wonder all in all how much he is down on his investment in the club.

Ashley's promised us 20-25 million a year for signings since he's bought us---and it never materialized. I'll believe it when I see it.

Yet hope springs eternal. I would be over the moon if the 20 million was in addition to what we get after selling.

“It’s going to be an interesting summer because there will be changes,” said Jonas *Gutierrez, one of several players who have much to prove at the higher level. “Some *players will leave, some will come in and I’m sure the manager and the owner will talk about where the squad needs strengthening.
