Have we got enough? The embargo thread

Recommended Posts

It's looking like we might be embargoed..can we mount a serious challenge with what we've got?

 

I'm talking about with everybody fit.

 

WTF!?

DC has always said we're within the limits of FFP and wouldn't break the rules, don't know why everyone's getting so worried about this!?!?

I hope so, because ...

 

We'll have a self imposed embargo this summer, in an attempt to avoid an official one 

 

Remember when we only signed JOC/Boyd or summat

The squad ...when all fit could be stronger with a few youngsters blooded..than the playoff seasons.

WTF!?

That's it tho... I can't see anyone of note coming in the summer....but we might have enough quality on the books to get success?

Actually it is who we get OFF the payroll. I can see Loovens, Wallace, Winnall/Butterfield going. Possibly Westwood & Fletcher. That should free up a bit of cash

We only have Fred on loan so may need to buy him.

Feel a bit sorry for Winnall who signed and the a few days later we signed Rhodes. Never got the chances that Rhodes got.

Who on earth is going to buy Fletcher? He's going to sit on his 30-40k a week for another 2 seasons, surely?!

Its not that easy to just git rid of players, we'd either have to pay them off, so saving no money, or get a buyer.

 

I can realistically see some players being attractive to other clubs, but even if they meet our requirements, will the players want to leave us and go elsewhere?

 

Given a mostly fit squad has done well for us in the previous two seasons, I think a fully fit squad next year could do well again.  They're older now though, so that could cost us.  I could see us challenging for sixth, should we be lucky with injuries next year, but reinforcements would be needed to be aiming higher I'd think.

Simple. Signing George Hirst unlikely to breach FFP so get it done and we will be on a run......

I think Van Aken and Pelupessy signings may well be a blueprint for the future. Young and hungry with an eye on appreciating values. All the pieces we have in the first team squad Jigsaw puzzle are required though.

 

I think the call made by many that our signings were poor was a little over critical. Two player for each position was a sound strategy. But no one ever expected that we would be using 8 or 9 stand in players for a run of concurrent fixtures. It is this that killed us and not total inadequacy throughout the squad. We could have maintained a better level of form had our injuries occurred in the usual one's and two's ratios.

 

I don't think a definitive position has yet been adopted in which transfer route we may take. It could still be spend, spend, spend !

If we were able to select from a largely full strength squad, I still feel we’ve got enough quality to at least make the play offs. The obvious area where we could improve would be in the full back positions, but quality full backs don’t seem to be easy to find.

We'd raise more money than some think selling a few to other Championship clubs spending daft money on slightly above average players.

If you were stood.on a train track and a train was hurtling towards you, would you need someone to mention it before you get off the tracks?!

Follow the paper trail between our ratified accounts and the football league requirements.

WTF!?

NB... I think we may have enough for success.... I was wondering what other owlstalkers thought.
