Assuming theoretically, you could only keep 3 players from the current squad [including youth] who would you keep. The rest would be sold for market value. You would be able to keep these players for a guaranteed 3 years. Just interested to hear people's thoughts?

Yeah that's right . the bottom surviving team will receive more Money next year than chelsea received for winning the league last year, tv and prize money combined. Crazy New 3 year tv deal . Hopefully we will see majority of it back into the squad, but who knows.

This link explains the current deal quite well. New deal starts next season so figures will change.

Reed has clearly been told to focus on doing the simple things and not to overcomplicate his game by trying outrageous through balls or elaborate passes, just win possession and keep play moving, which he does excellently for someone so young. He has excellent composure and reading of the game, I genuinely believe that whoever mentioned he could be a future England player was entirely correct.

As for the other youngsters, Targett hasn't embarrassed himself, but hasn't shone as brightly as he was once touted. I think he is a perfectly adequate backup to Bertrand and with a few games this season he could push on. Ward Prowse hasn't developed as much as most expected (injury didn't help), but all the same a reasonable squad player. I think this season will be a make or break for him. Gallagher looked to have decent movement off the ball but lacked composure in front of goal, but that comes with match practise and confidence, if used this season he could be a half decent player, a season long loan to the Championship could be a good move, especially seeing as Koeman doesn't seem particularly fond of him. Hesketh looked a bit lightweight when I have seen him, again maybe a season long loan to see how he fairs in the rough and tumble of the Championship may be an idea. We also have Turnbull and Stephens who spent last year at Swindon, who got valuable game time and could be handy squad players.

If clubs are asking we pay the 8 - 10 million asking price for Marshall or Forster, why not look at Begovic, surely would cost about the same, yet with years of prem experience and still only 28 (I think)

Decent chance we will lose Morgan if MoPo goes, not a chance we will get Theo. Aside from the fact he would, as previous poster mentioned command 100k + a week, he is also a valuable Aresnal player, even if he does get injured all the time!

To be fair I was that bored at work, I scrolled through every squad list since I was born!

I was shocked today with the amount of abuse against Targett, I genuinely thought of everyone on the pitch, he actually had a decent game. (Didn't get forward enough)

Davis, isn't a holding midfielder and had we started the new dude, who looked pretty handy, things may have been different.

Long was dodgy today, he is a much better impact player rather than a starter, Cedric was frankly sketchy at best, yosh was absolutely ruined by lukaku today. I think a new cb and Bertrand back we could be ok, throw in classie, mid table- I'd settle for that

Too injury prone, decent player though
