Is that a recent follow? 
 

Looks to me like he’s been following him for some time.

Not entirely sure but with the city link and being told in for him previously put 2 and 2 together mate. We shall see.?

Was pretty obvious they were going up well before the end of the season so that’s half the job straight away. 2 of their signings were also on loan to them last season so they may have been loan to buys upon promotion. 

All i hear is excuses for the club

Sounds like the Zohore rumours are true, looking to buy him according to Nixon. If we get him and Nabil Touaizi I’d be really happy. 

 

Not exactly true.

 

Someone asked Nixon if 'Zahore to Sheff Wed got any legs?' Nixon's reply - 'Yes. As a buy'.

 

He didn't say we're in to buy him.

I think we need to be realistic.

The players that left (strikers) needed to go due to our financial situation.

With possibly the exception of AN who a lot of fans wanted out and it probably was time to move on for his sake as well (I would still have kept him though).

It was never going to be easy to be easy to recruit the required players within a tighter budget, with a much harder transfer market and with -12 points hanging over us. I can only assume COVID will have further destroyed us financially and will continue to do so for the rest of this season.

We are where we are, Monk has a huge task to turn this round.

I doubt that any fans are complacent, there is a real risk of relegation. We can’t spend our way out of it without creating the same problem in future years. I think the best we can hope for is scraping our way throughout the season to staying up by 1 point. Or our appeal reducing the deduction. Either way the first four games won’t dictate our final position.
The club for me should be offering Westward to everyone, and probably trying to ship out a couple more, survival is important but righting the financial mess we have got ourselves into is also key else we will be back here again in future seasons.
Not much left for us fans to do other than support the team and crucially not get on the players backs after the first 4 games, if at all. It’s going to be hard and there are no easy answers.

I don’t think there is any point calling for Monks head. We have invested in his team and staff just need to see it through. And what decent manager in their right mind would join us.
 

 


Total sense mate!

Then he would have said ‘No. You’d need to buy’.

Or 'Yes. As a loan to buy'. But 'Yes. As a buy'. Is vague journalistic wording, that could imply an permanent signing or a loan to buy option but also incase it doesn't come off it covers all bases, in a way.

Quite a few think ten games will give us a good idea of how GM will. If you are happy to write off the first four games he’s going to have a mountain to climb. If teams pick up four or five points we could be sixteen points away from safety after that first four. 

 

That's the thing, the margins in this league are minuscule so it's not about writing off the first four games, Do I think the current squad could last the distance over 46 games, no. Could it pick up 4 or even 6 points in the first few games as is? Absolutely.

Precisely, if there was nothing in it he usually comes back with a sarcastic answer or a straight ‘no’.

I’m not saying we’re well run and well organised. I’m 37 now and I genuinely can’t remember a time where I’ve thought we were a well organised and well run club and we certainly haven’t become one under chansiri.

 

However Transfer windows are chaotic in a normal year, add to that the season being split and dates shifting regarding pre season, uncertainty about covid, uncertainty about efl charge, large number of playing staff turnover required this summer, new coaching staff, chansiri possibly not being around as much etc then it’s no surprise we’re still not ready yet.
