If we can finish third in our Champions League group and then have a kick at the Europa League knockouts, that might be a good option. "Finishing in the top eight would make it a reasonable season. We did overachieve last season, no one would've said we would finish fourth at the start. "We overachieved and had players playing out of their skin to achieve that.

"The Premier League has "robust" rules in place to ensure sales made between clubs owned by the same entity are of "fair market value", however Crafton believes there is the potential to bypass this with loan deals.

There were some positives with Anderson, Miley and Gordon, but I just can't help feel we haven't done enough in the transfer market to take on next season, we are very thin in several areas. Richard: Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool and possibly Spurs are going to be a lot stronger this season and with our Champions League games added there’s going to be a lot of pressure on the lads. Eddie Howe knows this, of course, and will want to hit the ground running. The Summer Series has at least shown the manager who’s fit enough for an Eddie Howe team.
