  1. Problem is we are light on everyone We need a championship quality keeper if Westwood is gone, we need a left back, a right back, a right winger and a striker and that is just so we can play a first 11 we then need options so another striker or 2 and another winger. We are looking at about 6-10 players depending who we move on. We cannot afford to have Westwood and Rhodes at the club not playing and the best part of £60k a week for the two of them they really need to be gone. I don't want another £3-4m quid wasted and they leave next summer on frees. So much to be done and we have 31 days before the 1st game of the season.
  2. Let hope the kids are back too as we don't have enough players to play any games - I hope the club has used some brains and got 4 or 5 players in on trial over the next few weeks, as well as seeing if they are going to fit we can get them match fit instead of getting other teams cast offs that then take months to get fit.
  3. If we appeal and lose, can the EFL increase the points deduction #asking for a friend 😁😁
  4. Don't we already have a goal keeping coach? Or has Weaver been removed.
  5. For me I would have kept him on, did well at Macclesfield, played 30+ games in a difficult season. Would have cost next to nothing to keep him, send him out on loan to league one and see if he progresses. We just seem to give youth, no chance in the team or in loan then give up and release them. I will be watching how Thorniley does this season, for me better than JVA and should have been given a chance last year instead of wasting money on Bates, but again another just got rid off. We need to be really smart in the transfer market and no wasted loans to not play.
  6. Just get a second half pass it not like we ever score in the first half of games any way. Then you can pretend that Monk picked the correct team and didn't change it at half time.
  7. They are ambitious yes and are just ideas, with so little money around the premiership teams might want players to get first team football instead of profit but if it comes to money we have no chance of signing any premiership players on loan. But from the complete lack of any signings we can but hope.
  8. You may as well go for Royston Drenthe only 33 currently playing in the Dutch 3rd division for Kozakken Boys ( I can only assume he is an over age player)
  9. For me there is a few strikers that have moved to premiership teams and either not got the chance or make the grade. Next season we need a consistent goal scorer as we are going to need to scrap for a lot of points while keeping it very tight at the back. An experience Keeper is a must someone like Darlow would be a great signing, though Marshall could also be available for free from Wigan (our new favourite buying club). Up front Nketiah, Obafemi, Connolly all good young players looking for regular game time that at Championship level could score goals and hopefully with the prospect of regular game time we might get them in. Could we maybe get someone of the talent of Hudson Odoi after the big up he has had very little actual game time at Chelsea, might they allow him to join us for the season to get game time and give us an x factor in the championship. It might be a bit of a fetch but only made 11 starts in 35 appearances and is going to be pushed down the pecking order with Chelsea's likely arrivals. We will probably stick with the unknown loans and older players but some quality youth that might spark others into life I just feel could work for us as long as we get them at the right price.
  10. Stoke also have an experience manager who make average players better than the sum of their parts he did very well with a very mediocre N Irish team. They have got a lot of their big earners off the wage bill and still have failure payments. Don't be surprised if they are flirting with the play off this season. Though for me it is Brentford, Watford, Bournemouth for promotion unless Brentford cash in on the front 3 which could fetch them £50m easy even in this market.
  11. A world class striker and a top class manager will we ever see these days again.
  12. Are centre backs the new central midfielders for years we have been stockpiling central midfielders, that were either not very good or what we already had. Now we seem to be getting linked with a lot of central defenders. We have no first team left back, right midfield, no championship quality goal keeper and only 1 striker on the books at the club. Until either 1 or 2 of Lees, Borner, Iorfa, JVA leave the club then I cannot see any centre backs arrive it would simple mean we have more players to sit in the stands again. We need to focus on the areas were we really need to strengthen with championship quality full backs and a decent Keeper we will concede a lot less goals. Last season Borner and Iorfa kept a very tight ship until we started messing with the back 4 and keepers.
  13. Does anyone think we will have any players in for when the players report back for preseason. We have to hit the ground running from game 1 not game 10, so to have to wait until the end of the transfer window to bring loans in when we could feasible be 15-20 points adrift of safety is not the plan I hope the club is adopting. Get players in now, get the team fit and used to playing together. So come the 1st game of the season we are ready to go and picking up points, we try and get to a positive points total before the first international break or at least cut the gap from 4th bottom to a few wins. Put some positivity back into the club and the players and try and dig ourselves out of this hole the club has put us in. We need new players in and we need them in this next week for me, I am sure other will disagreed.
  14. If its in the air we would be fine 6 ft 6" but 5ft 2 when he jumped.
