I have to say it lookslike we've done some great busness
And with Rob Newman takes over transfers from today i have to think things will only get better.

If we are all honest, with the exception of up front we are probably not too far off being a completely stocked team.

We have three goalkeepers in Areola, Fabianski and Randolph.

Five centre backs in Dawson, Diop, Ogbonna, Reid and Zouma. Although I could see Reid maybe going out on loan when the loan window is open.

Two left backs in Cresswell and Masuaku.

Three right backs in Coufal, Fredericks and Johnson. With Johnson also able to play on the left.

Four central midfielders by trade in Kral, Noble, Rice and Soucek.

Six wingers / attacking midfielders in Benrahma, Bowen, Fornals, Lanzini, Vlasic and Yarmolenko. With Fornals and Lanzini able to drop deeper if needed and potentially play the others as a false number 9 if needed.

And Antonio up top.

If Moyes is confident he can utilise attacking midfielders and wingers in a false 9 role when Antonio needs a rest then I trust his judgement.

That is not a shabby squad and I think there is enough there to cover as and when first teamers aren’t available.

{Ed001's Note - I thought the loan window was done away with?}

Excellent start to the season, all round.

I must of missed that completely Ed. Fair enough.

{Ed001's Note - it was only a couple of seasons ago, but I am sure that it was. I might be mistaken though, it did happen once.}

Die_4, Just to point out that the addition of Kral makes the side very versatile. If we have problems with centre backs, either he, or Rice have both done the job before.

We also have the very, very promising Baptiste, who is highly rated at the club.

I’m really looking forward to how Moyse sets up his “best” side, and how he rotates as the matches increase in frequency.

I have my reservations on krals quality I think he's a grafter that gets stuck in, looking at his stats he does give a lot of fouls away and his passing stats aren't great hope I'm wrong.

Trust Moyse’s judgement. His picks have been well justified since his return to us.

Spot on. Who actually thought Dawson was a good buy. Not me for one and happy to be proved wrong. Although he has looked ropey of late!
