The talk about Hutton got me thinking, where do you think we need to sign players when we go up? For me I seriously think we need 5 or 6 minimum to survive the first season, it's a large overhaul again but I do think it's necesary. I'd say for definite we would need; goalkeeper, right back, centre back (maybe 2), defensive midfielder and an attacking midfielder/ winger of sorts. I could name 2 or 3 players for each position aswell, but where do you lot think we need to strengthen? And why?

To survive we need to strengthen everywhere,
Most of these players would struggle in prem,
It's a big step up from championship level
Terry will be gone along with Hutton so they need replacing
Taylor and almo not good enough for me,
Chester would be ok
Houlinan not good enough
Grealish could be ok
Lansbury not good enough,
Adomah ok Just!
Hogan ok as a squad player
Johnson ok getting better with every game
Whelan not for me
Jedi to long in the tooth now just like Whelan
We need a younger squad as we have a few on or around the 30 plus Mark.
There are others to mention but I will leave it as that for now.

Definitely the squad needs an update.
GK: Johnstone. If not him, a solid goalkeeper.
RB: delaet (still think we did not give him much chance or he was injured most of the time) . Look at Lawton, we said not good enough and he has done a good job at Burnley. We also have Bree and we should be using him now.
CB1: Chester for sure and suliman as cover.
CB2: A new CB and bedeau (not sure if I spelled it right) as cover.
LB: new LB, Shaw from man utd? He is not getting enough game time there and Borg as cover.
CM: hourihane should be given a chance.
CDM: some one like gueye and lyden as cover.
CM: A new cm and Hayes as cover
CAM: Grealish for sure and O'Hare as cover.
ST: kodjia, Hogan and one more striker, someone like chicharito from West Ham (bit optimistic there I know) .

Wingers we have enough in Green, adomah, Murphy (yes with his pace he could be a better wingman) and sign Snodgrass as well.

This will be a very big squad.
Get rid of Gabby, Richards, gardener (I like him though but it's over for him at Villa), Elmo, Whelan etc.

Decent points lads, I agree with a few disagree with a few. Mainbob I reckon Taylor given a length of games to get his confidence back would be ok and definitely think Hourihane is good enough and tbh I think he’ll perform better in the prem. Kodjia would be good enough but his injuries are a worry. I had hoped we’d sign someone like Kieran Tripper for right back but he seems to play regular for spurs now so slim chance. Signing someone like Schneiderlin or Wanyama for the CDM role could be crucial, need some physicality in there.

Hourihane I do like but he needs to play further forward to make a difference,
He proved that against Norwich when he got close to Davis and looked very good
Kodjia I can't make my mind up on, .
He is not a team player but a lone maverick.
He looks great when he has a good game and is a very exciting player to watch but I need to be convinced if he would do well in premiership,
He Could well do but until we go up we will have to wait for proof of his talent,
Right back I would love trippier as well he is quality,

I always preferred Kodjia when we played 433 and him on the left wing, seemed less greedy and more effective. I think Hourihane will be a lot better in the prem, he has a brilliant passing range and with more time on the ball he will flourish.
