    Strange pre-season

    This is a bit of an odd pre-season eh? £61m already spent and about £20m back in sales. That's a hefty old whack for a nett spend with some 18 days still to go.

    So T'Hudd (perm) has now gone, along with Livermore (loan) and the rumours abound that Scottie and Townsend are also potentially, maybe, could be going. I still wouldn't be surprised to see Ade/Daffy both/either go. Danny Rose has also said he now feels that it's time to play on a regular basis. I think AVB needs to look at the 'home grown' balance before deciding on too many more exits. If the transfers/loans so far, all the incoming are foreign and 14/18 of the players on the outgoing list are English.

    A couple of seasons back we looked good on the 'home' front - now looking at the England set up, I don't see many of our squad making that apart from Walker. I think Daws could have just made it, had it not been for the injuries at critical times. Daffy - I'm not sure, as going on last nights set up, he may have fallen further down the order, and if he doesn't get regular games next season, then I don't see him going to the WC.

    I always though Levy was a 'young - and maybe British' type buyer - seems a bit of a departure so far.

    • still rumours of people coming like Erikson and the other fella from Ajax i cant remember his name atm i think Levy has finally realised we needed to spend to compete at the top and the signings so far have been top notch Paulinho looked aswesome in pre season fantastic first touch high quality passing plenty of pace and skill.
      RToday is the day the season is upon us roll on the end of the transfer window so the whole Bale situation can be sorted out one way or another and we can get on with our new season.
