Coupla frees, coupla cheap punts on potential & a few loans. Nowt wrong with that btw, most successful clubs at our level follow the same model.

Anyone mentioned "young hungry players" yet ?

I thought about it but settled for young fit players. Will that do?

For me only Westwood will be offered a contract of the out of contract players and we will sell Reach and Joao. 

 

That might balance the books and lead to a signing or 2. 

I think the same as you, If we can get Hector in any way that would be great.cant see us spending , paying any fees much otherwise. May 2 -3 free transfers and a couple of good premier league loans.

2 or 3 promising young loan signings, trimmed down squad, and we're all set for the off. It ain't gonna be an easy season, but we have the quality present in the current squad, just needs utilising effectively.

Mushrooms back on the menu ?

 

Anyway, Hector why are people mentioning £500k fee after the games he has had for us I would have thought other clubs would be sniffing round and surely would be in a better position to offer 3-5 million. 

 

Would love us to get him but would be amazed if we only paid £500k.

What sort of transfer policy are you expecting this summer?

 

I thought it'd be interesting to see what different people's expectations are. 

 

Might as well throw a few names out there as well if you have anyone in mind.

 

(Assuming we're all in agreement that at least 6/7 players will be leaving this summer)

 

For me, Hector is a must. Maybe get him for 1/2 million with him being out on contract next summer?

Add a centre midfielder in there as well. Some big/powerful to play next to Bannan. (That could be Onomah back on loan)

Sign Lazaar on a perm.

 

I would then think the rest of the signings will be people out of contract like Browne (Preston) and people of that nature. 

I'm not sure what the love in with hector is. Last few years we have had quite a few different centre backs, all of which haven't been great without Westwood behind them. I think we can pick up someone else for not much that would be as good assuming we have a good keeper

We will have more of an idea when the accounts are released tomorrow.

 

I’m hoping Bruce can use some of his extensive contacts in the game to get us some top loan signings!!

We'll go and spend 60 million on players next season

 

Ben Marshall will be one of those players. Then if it doesn't work out, Chansiri can blame the supporters for that signing

 

We'll sign a couple of Ajax's first teamers

 

Scott McTominay will sign on a season long loan deal from Manchester United

 

Chansiri will force Jermaine Johnson and Jeremy Helan to come out of retirement 

 

Then the squad will walk the championship and Chansiri will pay the fine for that financial nonsense

As an economist and financier I would normally advocate the use of debt to leverage financial income rather than use fresh equity (cash). In our case that would be for players and this would generate profits through promotion.

Under P&S however debt is simplistically a bad thing so expenditure needs in some say to match revenue income. 

If we sell Fernando and Reach we could seriously reshape the squad.

My vote however is to use the more traditional Thai economic model, fek it and use reckless spending and being able to absorb a 12 point deduction and still go up via autos.

Hope this helps.

Hull would be the standout.

 

When he got them up first time, they didn't spend all that much.

 

Long time ago, but I dont think he spent big money with Brum when he took them up the first time. 

 

Clucas, Robertson, Bowen and Odubajo all bought for relatively low fees by SB and now look how much they are worth? Odubajo would be somewhere better than Brentford if it wasn't for the injury he suffered.

Yep.

 

Picked up Meyler and Brady for relatively low amounts too.

 

It can be done.

I think we will retain Lee, Palmer, Hooper and Westwood, use Matt Penney in the squad, Thorniley will be a starting centre back. 

I think we will be in the market for two speedy wingers first and foremost. Probably loans or freebies. A left back, centre back, central midfielder

 

A mix of academy graduates and loans from the Prem. Maybe free agents.

 

I don't think anyone will meet Dejphon's valuations of players, so we won't be able to sell to fund any signings.

I am expecting a transfer policy of getting round pegs for round holes and every one of those pegs to be better than we already have.

Firstly will be a clear out of deadwood. the policy will be to cover all positions and have balance of players across the team.

Loans will be used extensively as it allows a better/more promising type of player to be brought in than finances would otherwise permit. I expect 4 as a minimum.

Free transfers will be scoured and perhaps one will be secured.

Probably by 2 or 3 players funded by sale or loan out of peripheral players.

 

Expect substantial change.
