How would you like to see us line up next season?
Formation, players and manager? Realistic is more interesting, so no Neymar suggestions (you're not David Sullivan)
For me I'd like to to see 3-4-1-2
---------------- Pickford -------------
------ kouyate Reid ogbonna---
Trippier obiang nordveit masuaku
---------------- Lanzini ---------------
------- batshuayi Hernandez -----
Pickford could be our keeper for the next ten years.
I love kouyate at RCB of a three, power pace and can bring then ball out and run with it if needs be.
Trippier is an excellent attacking full back and I think would make a great wing back for us.
We could improve at CDM but realistically won't have any money left.
Lanzini has a free role to find space, run at defences or thread balls through.
Batshuayi has power and pace to counter attach, Hernandez just knows where the goal is.
Realistic spend of:
Pickford - £10m
Trippier - £16m
Bats - £30m
Chicarito - £20
£76m gross spend.
Sell sakho, Valencia and feghouli for £25m.
Net spend of £51m.
Send back loans.
Keep Carrol for plan B... something we haven't had for years.
Promote Burke and Cullen.
Manager would remain as Bilic. He obviously hasn't lost the dressing room yet. One good season and one poor season. 2017/18 is the decider for him.
