    Who will stay at the club and who will/hope we sign that helps us meet the squad criteria? Who will leave and need upgrading on?
    I feel Afobe will be signed because of this.
    What are your thoughts?

    Ruddy, Norris, Doherty, Bennett, Hause/Batth, Coady, Afobe, plus one other.

    MGW will class as home grown won't he. Or is it an age thing where you can have as many u23s as you like... Or something like that.

    But yeah, I agree. Afobe might sneak in by default.

    Does Bright qualify... Although I can see him getting a loan for a season before being permanently offloaded.

    Yeah don't think U21s count towards your squad. So MGW, Burgoyne and Bright are all homegrown but won't be in the 8 we need.

    I think that Norris will be loaned out as we're in the market for another keeper. He's sat on the bench all this season and needs match practice - his stint v Sunderland suggests that.

    Ruddy, Norris, Hause, Bennett, Coady, Doherty, MGW, Bright.

    Think we’ll sign Afobe.

    Other homegrown players I’d love:

    Wilshere, Butland, Shaw, Loftus-Cheek, Abraham, Callum Wilson

    You can just register less players so you could have 6 home grown and 17 others.

    I'd be shocked if Baath stayed

    I was thinking who will stay?
    Ruddy as I think Norris will leave on loan
    Coady (as captain)
    Doherty (I feel we will upgrade though but extremely useful)
    Hause as I feel he is happy as a back up(not great ambition but each to their own)
    Bennett (first player to come in if any injuries as I think we will upgrade the starting position)
    Afobe (I think we will sign him)
    all the others that will stay will be under 21 so wont count against the 8 so I believe we will be looking for 2 home grown player upgrades.
    I'd love to see loftus-cheek and a fit and focused Luke Shaw but could they be out of our reach? I have no idea what FOSUN's reach is as we are new to the league despite their wealth.

    It’s really a maximum 17 non HG players aged over 21.

    Assuming the same rules as last season apply, a u21 player would be anyone born after 1st Jan 1997, that would mean Ruben wouldn’t count towards the 17.

    I thought you could register a player under 21 in your squad of 25 to fill the quota?

    Agree with most of this, particularly Loftus-Cheek.
    Lad looks class, and is of that kind of academy generation that would really suit our style, although not really a direct port for Saiis.
    Can’t see that he’d necessarily be out of Fosun’s reach.
    Rather more depends on whether he gets either assurances of regular football at Chelski, or Palace can afford him.
    If neither of those come off then yeah don’t think that’s at all out the way.

    Not sure on Shaw though. Depends who is to be believed regarding attitude.
    Is it all him, all Mourinho, or some mix?
    Got to have a pretty phenomenal work rate and discipline to play wing-back for us.

    Not sure we’d be looking to necessarily upgrade on Doc yet, but do need some cover.
    He might get his chance to shine and see if can step up long term.

    You don’t need to have 8 registered, you just can’t have anymore than 17 foreign players aged over 21.

    Rúben, Mir, Gibbs-White, Bright, Vinagre ect wouldn’t have to be registered in the 25 as they can pass as U21 players for next season.

    So necessarily you could actually build a team without any home grown players, Taking a guess we will have Ruddy, Coady, Bennett, Doherty, Afobe within the squad but I don’t see us having 8 over 21 home grown players registered next season

    They don't have to be registered if they're not Homegrown, but you can register them if they are.

    But in reality, as other have said, you'd not register any U21s and just register less players.

    I make it:

    GK: NEW (non HG), Ruddy (HG), Norris (HG), Burgoyne (HG) - 1 Non, 3 HG
    CB: Boly (Non), Coady (HG), Bennett (HG), Hause (HG), NEW (Non), Batth (HG) - 2 Non, 4 HG
    WB: Doherty (HG), Douglas (Non), Ofosu-Ayeh (Non), NEW (Non), NEW (Non) - 4 Non, 1 HG
    CM: Neves (Non - he was 21 this year so doesn't need to be registered, but is such an important player he probably will be), Saiss (Non), N'Diaye (Non), NEW (Non) - 4 Non, 0 HG
    AM: Jota (Non), Costa (Non), Cav (Non) - 3 Non, 0 HG
    FW: NEW (Non), New (Non), Afobe (HG) - 2 Non, 1 HG

    TOTAL: 16 Non, 9 HG

    With squad support from Mir, Gibbs-White and Bright.

    As it stands, even if none of our new signings are HG, we will be fine, even if some of our HG players are sold.

    I don't feel FOSUN do back ups and will look to upgrade on anyone given the opportunity.

    Well hopefully we're getting rid of Danny so one more - Wilshire (still hasn't signed new deal with Arsenal)

    There's no requirement to fill the quota, U21s are just extras really and you could have a squad with no homegrown at all, you'd just be limited to 17 senior players plus your U21s

    Would you loan out Norris or Burgoyne? After the sub on the last day I'd imagine goalkeepers contribute a lot behind the scenes than just sitting on the bench come matchday.

    If we get someone in as first choice (as seems to be the probable case) I'd have Ruddy on the bench and loan one of the other two out to a club who'd use them as first choice.

    I agree with Wilshere, Butland and Loftus-Cheek and we could go for Butland rather than Patrício for this reason. Wilshere is a no brainer on a free. I just hope we can get him but expect him to stay at Arsenal particularly if Arteta succeeds Wenger.
