Of course it's huge. Surprised LouOrns is saying it's minimal. We came 19th last season, but had we used that squad, with Doucoure, Capoue, Welbeck, Deulofeu, Pererya we'd have walked the league this season. We've massively watered down our squad but are still comfortably a top 4 Championship side. Look at Norwich. Kept pretty much the same squad. Far too good for the Championship, but well short in the Premier League. Occasionally you get a Sheff Utd, who played out of their skin for a season, which makes the transition look small, but look at them this year, canon fodder. Villa invested millions to bridge the gap. Probably spent over £200m in their two seasons since promotion. Fulham retained their Premier League squad last season in the Championship, but are in the bottom three again this season. Leeds, for me, are a bit like Wolves. They had a Premier League squad before they went up, or rather their style was very strong and that's down to the manager. But if he went Leeds would drop down pretty quickly unless they heavily invested. West Brom, crap because they didn't invest. The same will happen to us, if we go up with what we have and don't significantly improve. Midfield and strikers would need a major uplift as would probably left wing and left back.
