Ban Lifted In Jan

So the news over the weekend is that the transfer Ban is to be lifted, it seems to be the general consensus that we would only ever serve a one window ban.

this would be a great time not only to strengthen but to release some deadwood.

firstly the players that have to go are

Willian - i thought he might be off in the summer but he stuck around
Alonso
Zouma
one of Giroud or Bats - id guess giroud as bats fits lamps style of play alot better

we could then replace these players in the transfer market to bring in a fresh new dynamic to the team.

Zaha - Deal is done i think the only reason he didn't go to arsenal is that we had already agreed a deal. - direct replacement for Willian, would be a brilliant signing for us.

We also probably need some real competition up top, Tammy has started well and if he is still scoring goals up until jan it would be hard to go and replace him. but competition is needed

Left back - same as above, we need competition there
RB - no doubt Reece will come in but i think Azpi's time here is up in the summer so strengthening this area is also key.

a few subtle changes there but would leave us with a very strong team particularity in midfield and in attack.

I dont think we should go nuts and should probably continue with what we are doing now as i firmly believe that when all players are back and fit we easily get top 4

As long as the money isn't spent frivolously on middling players like Ake, Rice, Zaha, etc...

Have we actually got anything concrete in writing that says this ban lift is a go-er

I think it's just from the report in The Mirror that the club have informed certain agents that we expect to be in the market in January.

I'm not holding my breath either, if it happens then great if it doesn't we are in the same position.

Good news. Maybe we can offload the likes of Mount, Abraham, Tomori and get some proper players in.

soccer?lol.

I think our biggest position to fill is CB as Tomori is still young and we could probably cash in on AC and Zouma.

Rudiger is a total package for me, quick, can play, and great at the hustle and bustle but I think he could be great next to a maguire type player. Not sure who is out there though.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
What exactly is a Maguire type player? One who can head a ball?
Just use some attributes rather than calling out an expensive defender.

Back to the article...Rudiger will make an excellent partner for a top level ball-playing defender but I'm in no rush on that. I'll like Tomori to be given till the end of next season to see how his play holds up at the top level.

EXACTLY! Have fellow blues not realized the mediocre players we've wasted money on via this approach?
