Dawson (2020) - keep

Wildsmith (2022) - keep

 

Baker (2020) - keep as back up, prem loan as first choie RB

Lees (2021) - keep unless offer received

Thorniley (2021) - keep

Penney (2020) - keep as back up in proper position, prem loan as first choice LB

van Aken (2021) - looks like he available for sale/loan

Fox (2020) - sell, wont be a big wage, nominal fee

 

Bannan (2021) - keep unless offer received, big offer

Hutchinson (2020) - nobody else will take him, so here for his 20 or so games per season, decent option when fit

Reach (2021) - keep, but most likely to sell re FFP

Pelupessy (2020) - squad

Stobbs (2020) - squad / loan

Kirby (2020 - squad / loan

 

Winnall (2020) - keep

Forestieri (2020) - keep, cant see any takers for enough money

Nuhiu (2020)  - sell / loan

Joao (2021) - keep

Fletcher (2020) - no option but to keep unless offers, could do with wages off books

Rhodes (2020) - sell / loan, seems to want to stay at Norwich and they want him

 

I'm sure trimming the squad back to the 16 players noted above complies with FFP, particularly as most wont be on big money. if not, we may as well give up.

 

Think Bruce will have to deal predominantly in the PL loan market, no bad thing when looking at the better players in this league in recent times. We're allowed 5, so assuming Hector back on loan, leaves 2 wing backs, midfielder and a striker with cheap buys, ie the likes of those linked in Scotland or u23's plugging the gaps.

 

Expect all out of contract players to leave, van aken and Rhodes most likely to be out probably on loan and may need to sell bannan or reach to balance the books, in which case would hope to be able to reinvest some of the fee in a replacement.

 

We don't have the luxury of 2 experienced players per position due to idiotic FFP restrictions, were going to have to concentrate on a competitive first 11 and use squad players, as per their purpose,  to come in and do a job as needed from the u23's.

Yes but doesn’t all that need to be done in this transfer window to avoid a further embargo

With how many of the under 23 that have had pro deals I do feel it going to be lot of what jos was doing but a good mix of youth and experience but of do bring someone in it need to be one out one in in summer

Wouldnt it be refreshing if we did sell one of our ‘stars’.... to absolutely fleece someone like the unwashed,  derby, bristol city etc often seem to. 

 

£15m for Reach would be a start, if we are selling that is

I’d happily sell Forestieri he’s a waste of time . Nobody would want him though . All the players out of contract can go . I’d happily take decent money for reach and Bannan . Good players individually , but don’t impose themselves on games nearly enough

As long as Hooper, Lee and Abdi go that'll be a good start.  

 

If anybody wants to pay good money for FF that's fine too, and we obviously expect Westwood to move on.

 

Most have done well in the past but no room for sentiment, this stale squad needs a huge clear out and we now have a great opportunity to do it.

Let’s be honest none of them are irreplaceable.

 

FF and Bannan are the only ones with real quality and FF spends more time having a barbecue than he does on the pitch!

I agree with the second part of your post but calling Forestieri a waste of time makes no sense to me. One of the few players we have that create things.

And in the last 2 years what has he done ? Been mainly injured , scored a handful of goals and had a spat with some Mansfield town players. Not exactly star player credentials is it

He last contributed anything regularly in 2016, has talent but we gain nothing from it. Doesn't help himself by being an idiot either.

 

Was a snip at £3 million and his first season was top class, but definitely time to get shut of him if we can.

Just an honest question mate, but do you ever praise any of our players? All I’ve seen from you is criticism. Just wondering...

We’ve got enough to stay up just about with the team below even if we sell Reach and release all the out of contracts

 

                                     Dawson

 

              Hutchinson.       Lees.        Thorniley

 

Baker.           Pelupessy.            Bannan.           Penney

 

            Joao.            Fletcher.        Forestieri 

 

Wildsmith

Fox

Van Aken

Kirby

Winnall

Nuhiu

Rhodes

 

Really weak in wide areas but if we can get through this season and next, then we can reshape the squad in 20/21 season and we would have circa 20 million plus scope for players if the chairman wants to give it another go within FFP/ P&S
