Last time we started a season with so few strikers we were relegated!

I'm hoping that Nani & Duxbury sort it out before the deadline.

Supposedly, they are flying all over the place and already have offers in for Mancini & Balotelli (if they accept them may be a deadline decision) and we may already be having discussions about/with Eidur.

I would say that with Mario & Eidur we would have sufficient cover to let Ashton go.

If those deadline deals don't come off then we may be left very threadbare.
