Last season 26 players played more than 90 minutes. I think we were short in the end (play-offs).
I think we ought to keep all our players as we may need them.
Even Manu goes we need to replace him. The same with Ince and Towell. Lualua might be unsettled.
To my mind we have complete a squad. I think they are good enough as well. Could always be better.
Would we have signed Norwood of the Pritchard deal had not been gazumped? If so CH may think we need an attacking midfielder as well?
Brighton = blue
Albion = white
Hove = just a little gold necklace stripe

Scott Hogan developments. Very big bid in. Championship side. Don't think ever been linked with him before.
The Asprilla school of thought has some merit (leave well alone) but for me we have to strengthen. Chances don't come better than this one and if we lost a couple of strikers to injury we could still miss out. Is that likely? Probably not, but you cannot take the chance at this point with what's at stake. If Manu goes we need two strikers IMO.
I'd keep Kaz around until the summer regardless he has something to offer and is going to be a known quantity. I'd look for someone young from the lower divisions to replace Ince and if Tex is available he could cover a loan move for Towell who needs games and also offer another option in the no.10 role. I'd like to see one striker capable of playing in the PL from abroad even if that means breaking the transfer record and a young up and coming player from the lower leagues.
I'd love it if Albion had the spending powerfully Scott Hogan from Brentford
Following his dismissal, Pardew was permitted to return to his office to take down the framed photos of himself and remove the carefully wrapped presents he had placed under his private Christmas tree, each bearing the label ‘to Alan with love’
Hemed scored 17 goals last season which was his first in the Championship. He is capable of standing in. It's only because Murray is on fire, that he doesn't start games.
We need another striker with pace to compete with Baldock.
