With a right back (possibly a left back though I think McCartney is half decent) and a quality winger I think you have the squad to be up there, whether or not they'll actually do it though is debatable.
I think if you bought Bentley and Hutton or players of similar quality that haven't been given a chance, then you have a very good squad. Who knows Brucey may pluck some more quality out of South America.
Either way down the spine you are very strong and have good players to bring in when first teamers are out injured. That is usually the difference between teams finishing in the top 10 and finishing in a European place; strength in depth.
