Are Four Signings Going to Be Enough?
Club Co-Chairman, David Gold, has been interviewed on SSN regarding the club's summer transfer plans. In the interview, Gold states that the club are aiming to bring in two, three or maybe four new signings before the close of the transfer window at the end of August. Presumably, that number excludes our first two signings, Jussi and Henderson? I sincerely hope so anyway.
So, if we take David Gold's comments at face value, are four new signings going to be enough to redress the lack in our current squad and add the necessary depth in strength for the coming PL campaign? Over to you!
