I read that Jol wants to offload 6 or 7 and bring in 4 or 5. These figures are flkexible I'm sure.
Newspaper talk - usually bull, says we are after Shelvey and Downing. Shelvey is very young and would be a good addition; Downing, too, as Liverpool have been playing him at left back. Not a great goalscorer but has one of the best left foots in the game. And do we need a left back!!!
Ok, forget Carlton Cole but I also read that Villa are letting Bent go for free. What an insult. Go get him, Jol.
Bring bent shelvey fringpong and downing don't can't do any worse than what we got we need someone that can ping balls left right and centre if we get them all on a free does this mean we will still have money spare

I too think Shelvey would be a great signing, not sold on Downing as I believe he will play as a winger and not left back. But that being said I would take him. Bent would also be great. How about Faurlin from QPR? or Granero? or Huddlestone? I think any of these guys would make the midfield much improved. The weakest part of Fulham this season was the midfield by far.
Left back is a big concern also, but I cant think of any left backs Fulham could afford. Who played left back for Wigan?

Beausejour plays left back for Wigan . dont think we need a left back though Riise BrIggs and Richardson are competing for that postion also some talk about Downing not sure we need another winger we have Frei Kacaniklic Dejagha Duff Smith . Sevely will be too expensive don't need Dunne or Givens would take Enoh permanently plenty of potential but definintely need creative midfielder and really fast partner for Berbetov then I think we are complete ?

Poor young Frimpong has had knee surgery, after picking up an injury during our Swansea victory. Get well soon.

I think Espinosa plays left back for Wigan and would make a very good signing.

Espinosa looked good in the final game for Wigan. I think he would be a good, cheap signing. I was also thinking about Jermaine Jenas too, he would cost next to nothing and be a good squad addition for the midfield.

We don'y need MORE midfielders, we nee the right midfielder (singular).
We don't need MORE wingers, we might want one more who is better than all the ones we've got.

I agree. Look at the players profiles and see - we are OVERLOADED WITH MIDFIELDERS. There's not a lot of talent there either.
So, we do not need more - just different.
Wingers - Dejagah and Kaka should both feature next season. Back up (Frei) and/or better is the only requirement. Note also that Riether can cross a ball like a winger.
We need someone in the middle who can do something with the crosses.
