We've just added a striker to our list that we will need in Summer because Crouch won't be here beyond then. That's on top of the players we will want to replace or improve in the squad and the ones we haven't replaced before then.
People seem to forget that Dyche himself wanted more bodies, he's said it in his interviews. Despite that you trot out the well we finished in Europe last year as a "trump" card.
Just admit that the recruitment in the last two windows has been cack, it doesn't make you any less of a claret contrary to the belief on here.
Spot on we are in danger of doing a Stoke/WBA,an ageing squad which will require a major overhaul in the summer,this in itself carries risks as these new signings will have to gel quickly and hit the ground running,if we survive this time it's doubtful the promoted teams,whoever they maybe will be as useless as Huddersfield or Fulham.
Midfield is the priority area for me,Defour,Brady and JBG are too fragile to rely on game in game out,which means we'll flog Cork,Westwood,Hendrick and McNeil till they drop.
Also we need an impact player up top,Vydra hasn't yet hit the heights we expected,Crouch won't be here,ditto Wells and Walters,Wood and Barnes is our best pairing but they can't be relied on for the whole season.
All the above is dependent on PL status being secured,in the event of relegation it's a whole different ball game.
