We've added Stephane Dalmat on a year's loan and Paul Konchesky on a month-long deal to the summer arrivals of Fredi Kanoute, Helder Postiga, Bobby Zamora and Mbulelo Mabizela.
"It will be interesting to see the likes of Fredi Kanoute and Stephane Dalmat," said Gus, on his way back from a broken wrist. "I have trained with them already this week and they look very, very good players.
"It is up to us to make sure they have the good passing around to help them settle as soon as possible.
"I'm sure it will be tough for every player to be in the team week in, week out, but that is a good thing for the squad.
"We know we need everybody fit, that's nothing new. When everyone is fit, it will then be up to the manager to make the decisions."
Gus Poyet believes it will be tougher than ever for players to force their way into the team this season - insisting that can only be good for the club.
