Peter Storrie and Harry Redknapp have told us repeatedly what their plans are as far as summer transfers go, now it is just about the time for these words to be followed up with actions...
We were 'promised' 3 top class signings this summer, and although I am not in the slightest bit concerned that they have not arrived just yet we are entering the kind of time frame that we set out to have these sorted by, or at least starting to be sorted by.
Glen Little and Ben Sahar are 2 good signings for me, and are a good starting point but they are not the 'top class' signings we have been told about - with all due respect to both, who as I say I think are good signings, I would at least hope not!
We are back for the start of pre-season training next week so if what we have been told holds true I would hope that the Peter Crouch's, the Shaun Wright-Phillips', the Nicky Shorey's and the like will soon start arriving so we can start bedding them in ahead of the new season.
As said I am not concerned that no 'major signings' have yet been revealed, as I am sure these will happen, and said only last week that I had a feeling we would sign at least 2 players this week - we have 1 in the shape of Sahar so I would not be surprised if another, and my tip would be either Crouch - who I really do believe is a near certainty - or Shorey arrived by the end of the week.
I would certainly hope that our main targets have arrived, or at least have started to arrive by the time we head off to Africa for our pre-season friendlies in Nigeria and the training camp in South Africa that follows, ideally by the time the pre-season friendlies kick off full stop.
The 'major' deals will start to happen shortly I am sure, and once again I cannot stress enough we should not be worried that they have not already, but now it is time for actions to start speaking louder than words isn't it guys!
So, how are we feeling about the way things will go in the coming week - are we confident that the main targets will arrive, or at least start to arrive? As always share your thoughts...
