Ok Sagna is 34 but has very good energy, overlaps and crosses well something that we badly need also we will have Ward as cover to help, lets not forget a good young RB who is an improvement on Ward will probably cost around 15m plus. As for Clichy still only 31 and if we are honest an improvement defensively on what we currently have, problem is do we need another LB? or could it be One will be sold to raise funds.
I can see Big Sam doing what he tends to do(Bolton as an example, where success/stability was brought on a limited budget but with experienced players, i can see a few "freebies" brought in to save on fees as Sakho and possibly a Midfielder and Keeper will be big money signings this summer, not forgetting the huge pay increase in Zaha's wages, that will probably then leave several signings to be on a free.
Bringing in quality experienced players is quite a good short term plan to establish yourself, whilst you slowly select the right young talent to bring in gradually, if we were to then achieve a Top Ten finish with this plan, who's complaining.
Good post. Having seen his dossier in action in January and the results he got subsequently as a result, i'm excited to see how he juggles the budget this time. Both are good players. It's like waiting for a bus for left sided players though.
