In all honesty, I feel we have a good, young squad who could make the transition quite well. Players like Moore, Swift, Obita etc could acclimatise to PL football fairly smoothly.
But I would say we would need about 7 or 8 signings to actually hold our own and be enough of a threat to avoid relegation. Our complete forward line and wingers IMO are not up to PL standard. You can strengthen the defence as much as you like, but we would be cannon fodder if we weren't a threat at the other end.
Ftr I think we are far better prepared than other current playoff counterparts. The likes of Leeds would need to invest far more than the likes of ourselves.
I agree, i think once our squad settled into the premiership (If we got there), we would do ok, teams tend to get more time to play than in the Chumpionship so i feel our style of play would suit us fine. Against the Manc's in the cup we were like rabbits in headlights for the first 30 mins, but once we settled down we played ok, and we were playing the most expensive club assembled in the country lol.
But i also agree, we would need 6-8 new faces for depth of which 3 of these would need to be a whole new strike force, and whats the going rate for a decent premier league strike force these days? 30 mill minimum
