Players that should be shown the door are...
Hutchinson, Lomas, Brevett, Rebrov, Melville, Mackay, Possibly Repka...
I've been mulling over who we need and things look bleak.
Although Mullins played well in the latter part of the season he is a bit ordinary, he wasn't good enough for Palace in the Championship when we
bought him and i don't think he will make the step up.
The midfield doesn't score enough goals and won't do much better in the prem. We definatly need a playmaker in midfield and someone else that can
score goals, plus a big striker to hold the ball up. Chris Cohen has to come into the equation in midfield, he looks quite a good prospect..
Our defence is looking slightly better but we don't have enough experience at the back. Powell is old, Dailly keeps getting injured, Repka could be
gone... Leaves us with 3 rapidly improving defenders.. Ferdinand, Elliot Ward, and Trent Mccllehan.. But they lack badly in experience...
Plus we need a keeper badly ... Walker and Bywater are ok but they just aint Prem standard. There is a young keeper in France called Andreas Isaksson
who playes for Rennes, he looks a damm good prospect and they could go for him before a big club snatch him up.
If i was Pardew i would be looking to take Hoyte, Glen Johnson on loan and pushing the boat out to get them. Plus signing Davenport would be a good
move. Voltz is a solid player in defence and we could get him quite cheaply from Fulham. Or make a move for Young at Charlton.. At 2.5 million i think
we missed the boat with Bent and he would have been a good signing.. We have a good crop of youngsters comming through again but what we need is some
