Squad depth is an important thing to a successful campaign.

This summer we have smashed our transfer record twice.

Previously held by Marko Arnautovic when we purchased him from Stoke City for £20 million.

On 19th June 2018, we captured Issa Diop for a new club record £22 million from Toulouse.

And then on the 15th July we nearly doubled our record by splashing out a reported £42 million for Brazilian attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson from Lazio.

Last season we lacked players, our squad only had 22 eligible players. This season we have upgraded and now have 30 players who can play in the 2018/2019 season.

This summer the board has spent £95 million on new players, which shows that they aren’t scared to spend the money that they have to try and make this club great again.

Obviously the transfer window hasn’t closed yet, so this means there could potentially be more new signings could be coming to the club

It also means players could be leaving, players like Robert Snodgrass, Sam Byram and Josh Cullen are likely not to be at the London Stadium next season.

This season has the potential to be exciting and that is because of the new talent brought into the club.

Credit has got to go to Manuel Pellegrini, and the director Mario Husillos. But I would like to give credit to the board for forking the money out.

Will we see any more signings made in the window? Is the squad depth that we have this year compared to last year something to be excited about?

West Ham fan for as long as I can remember. I was flukey enough to watch The Irons beat Bury 10-0 in my first ever game . . . True to form, West Ham then went out and signed their central defender 😬
