It’s quite obvious the positions we need to strengthen, it’s there job to go out and identify them , it’s not always the case that managers sign the players these days am afraid 

What decent manager would come here if the club are picking players before you arrive not many

Somewhere along the line the squad needs a revamp. It’s been very much the same squad for four years or more. I’ve posted before that for this current squad this coming season is more than likely the last crack at trying to get promoted?

 

As for the future assuming we stay at this level, we will have to sell before we can buy so it’ll be frees, loans and maybe first team breakthroughs for the likes of Shaw, Grant, Hunt, Rice etc.?

If the club can not guarantee the right manager will be in place before the deadline then they have to add people based off Bullen and based off probably Bruces list. 2 or 3 loan signings and possibly more free agents to come i reckon. Not a dime to be spent though as no money coming in from sales. If they haven't even contacted Rowett then sounds like we will not suddenly have a manager today (Q announcement in next 20 minutes)

Just come to my attention that Lewis Holtby is now a free agent. An attacking mid which we are very short on.

 

played 30 games last season for Schalke.

 

also linked with Cardiff.

Loads of bantz between Hector/Joao/Nuhiu/Bazza on their Instagram stories.

 

He's desperate for a move back here - make it happen.

Decent age and very experienced. At the right wage he would be a very good signing.

Reading Bring In Lucas Boyé On Loan 

He'll stay with the Royals for the duration of the 2019/20 season. 

The Argentine winger joins from Serie A side Torino on a season-long loan deal with the option of a permanent move next summer.

Apologies if mentioned before, but Andre Green from Villa to Preston is an excellent loan. Was very impressed with him at our place.

Would just love us to make a new signing today, announce the new manager, anything. Everything just feels a bit meh at the minute. Plenty of transfer business seems to be getting done by other teams, some very good business by PNE.

Any new manager would inherit a squad of 25 or so players he did not pick himself, what's it matter?  The wheels don't stop turning, we have Bullen for continuity and a recruitment team apparently.  Getting a couple of extra players in to strengthen or balance the squad will not put potential managers off, what a strange statement.

Can he play against us, tomorrow? Was out on loan at AEK Athens last year, 23 appearances, 6 goals.

Bielik is a great player, £10m will be wasted on players a lot worse than him ,  fully believe Derby will gain from that deal

You need to get into the modern world of football, even Pochetino at Spurs doesn't sign the players ffs.

Like you said he would have a squad of 25+ players he may or may not want, by going out and adding 2 more possible players he may not want just adds to the wage bill. This is why we are in the mess we are
