I agree, lets look forward though rather than backwards. We can shape the future, we cant change the past. Mr Gibson now understands that [^]

Great looking side although I'd like to see Bamford in there instead of Ramirez

Who is the cover for injury-prone Ayala? Are they better than Chambers? Do we have better 'keepers?

Darlow? please no.. I wait to be proved wrong but he looked terrible at times for Newcastle last season - command of his area like Don Quixote..

Bamford in for Ramirez..

Have we improved that much?
Ripley for Guzan - definitely
New keeper for Valdes - wait and see
Fry for Chambers - Nope
Assombalonga for Negredo - Negredo is a class act and proven at highest level, but Britt does have the potential to be as good.
Baptiste for Espinosa - same same (if Baptiste stays)
Howson for Fischer- yes
Braithwaite for Rhodes - yes
Christie for Barragan - yes

I think it's not about being better players; it's whether they can be more effective.

This squad looks like it can be more effective than what we went with last year.

Including the January buys I would say we have 6 new players who have proven effective elsewhere at this level before; adding to a group who have been effective here.

Ripley for Guzan - Hopefully!!!
New keeper for Valdes - Dimi
Fry for Chambers - No
Assombalonga for Negredo - Probably yes
Baptiste for Espinosa - Don't know, Baptiste played LB I think the other day.
Howson for Fischer- Different type of player
Braithwaite for Rhodes - Different players, same result
Christie for Barragan - yes from what I've seen so far. Could be the surprise signing

All that matters is that it is a much better squad than the one that got us promoted two seasons ago.

There can be no excuses if this squad fails to emulate that. None whatsoever.

What are people basing this on?
Ive seen nothing of braithwaite and little to nothing of the others.
Hindsight plus assumption?

As said what matters is it as good as 2015/16 squad

Currently it looks a bit stronger than the 2015/16 team.

I prefer Fabio to Nsue or Kalas
I prefer Howson to (aging) Leadbitter
I prefer Assombalonga to Nugent or Rhodes (based on scoring record since 2014)

other positions are the same player or to me a direct equivalent.

As things currently stand, I think we do have a better squad than last season.

However, I reckon De Roon and Ramirez will be sold and regardless of the valid opinions on Ramirez, we would need to replace him with similar quality, not easy in this league as let's be honest, he made the difference when he came in that season.

A very interesting window this has been with more to come and go, exciting times I reckon
