    It’s about time we started talking about next season. So I have two questions.

    If we stay in the premier league – who should go and who, if anyone, should we bring in?

    If we go down, same question.

    Lets hear it, hot and strong!

    Hard to speculate, just praying for survival right now.

    all this will be much easier to speculate about on Monday.

    Too true! Hopefully we will be speculating with giddy hearts.

    Between worrying about Sunday and trying to get through the week not getting fired because i'm so worried about Friday, I have no time to speculate.

    Wild prediction: John Arne Riise is our starting LB next year (if we stay up, that is).

    well, as long as he doesn't try any defensive headers, I can live with that.

    Was this thread REALLY necessary before we are confirmed of staying up?

    Humm, wild - maybe not! How about Sami Hyypia for a year? Maybe that is more like it.

    Re: One more speculation

    Did you have anyone specific in mind from Reading or were you thinking someone should just pick up the entire team and sort out who they wanted to keep later?

    Sorry BarryP, posting in my head instead of on the messageboard. I meant to say Hahneman.

    I like Hughes as a person, but feel he needs to be replaced.

    Really like Healy, but sell him for another striker.

    Buy stalteri permanently.

    This is the off-season of sign big or don't sign at all. Coleman tried to buy cheap and that failed, Sanchez tried to buy expensive english-based players and even that has failed. Time to go abroad and work our magic and buy quality internationals. That being said, I'm kicking it old school with my first signing.




    Louis Saha-Yes, that's right. Bring this prick back. Manure don't want him and he will be sold for around 6M. He's guaranteed double of what our top scorer scored this season, if not triple. Mcbride can't go on forever and I'm not confident in Kamara,Nevland,Healy and Johnson. Time to bring back the guy who led us to the Premier League.


    David Odonkor-This guy is pacy and quite brilliant. From Real Betis in Spain and I feel we could get him at a decent price. I'm not too sure how he's played this season for Betis(Only watched a few games), but have you seen him for Germany? Pure class.


    Damarcus Beasley-This is a player we should of brought in last season. we need pace on the wings and can you imagine Beasley and Odonkor on both wings? Absolutely terrifying.

    Nicolas Burdisso-Time for Hodgson to work that Inter magic. This guy is a solid centerback. Would go along well with Hangeland.

    Maarten Stekelenburg_This is our new #1. Plays for Ajax and is Holland's future #1 too.


    As you can see, I see CB,Forward,Wings and keeper as our main needs. I'm being a bit out there with my picks, but my main point is that we need to bring in top class international quality. Mo spent last season and needs to find the funds to do it again. With a guy with as many connects as Hodgson, spending money is a must. If Hodgson gets what Sanchez got last season, we're top 10 and cruising.




    Oh and sign Murphy and Stalteri permanently.

    Definitely need a goal scoring striker, a quality defender-type (either central or right back), and a left-sided winger. Also, we need to start thinking about a long-term keeper, as has been mentioned. Keep grooming EJ and see if Dempsey can up his level up play on the left. Dempsey might get replaced by a left wing signing this summer, unfotunately, but maybe not.

    I'm voting for Juan Roman Riquelme -- dream big.

    If Thierry Henry wants to come back to London...

    Let's frickin get Dewayne DeRosario (the best player in MLS) for goodness sakes - he won't cost as much as Healy did.

    Either way - they need to put up some cash, and I agree that South America may be a good place to look.
