The ten I've had since before this latest window opened were:
Jussi: Demel: O'Brien: Nolan: Morrison: Vaz te: Jarvis: Cole: Maiga: Zarate
I think the club has made decent progress with four gone. Two more were lined up to go yesterday, while the arrival of Hendrie in the summer spells the end most likely for Demel.
That would leave Jussi (out of contract), plus O'Brien and Nolan (both with one year left).
If all those went, and we splashed the cash on Jenkinson and Song and retained Winston this is how we'd look:
Most of those gaps could be filled with Bosmans/loans.
I can see why they will probably hold onto O'Brien and Nolan, but I wouldn't. It's possible to make an argument for Carlton ('who else would sit back as Carroll's understudy?') but the writing is on the wall again.
I'd expect summer 2016 to be aiming at an outstanding CB and an outstanding player for the front 4.
