Not being critical, been a successful season, just need another 4-5 points, than job done. Just looking at current squad, how many still have that extra 15 - 20 % to improve / develop, who has ,in all aspects of their game, reached their limits, and sadly the ones, for whatever reason, its time to say thanks, but cheerio.

Improve - Meslier, Koch, Llorente, Struijk, Phillips, Raph, Rodrigo, Bamford - who hopefully have more in the locker.

As they Are - Ayling, Cooper, Alioski, Dallas, Klich, Harrison, possibly all at there limits, but can they maintain that level for another couple of seasons. Take say Ayling & Dallas, able to play in multi- roles, which MB likes, but extra pressure. Fear is, could they start to slip and go the other way. Could be a worry with a small squad.

Leavers - Costa, Hernandez, Casilla ( Have to include Berardi / Forshaw ) mixture of age, injury time out, simply not good enough, moving forwards

U23s At least 5-6 showing real potential, getting 8\10 for the U23 is one thing, stepping up to Ist team / Prem is another, but if say 2 can make that step, huge bonus for squad.

This summers transfer business looks *****, 4-5 quality needed, plus some players, not getting any younger, must maintain current form / ability etc. Second season is always tougher.
