Starting again next season.

Recommended Posts

Lots of contracts up in the summer, a big chance to refresh the squad. Forgetting who the manager is for a minute what do you think the recruitment team should be looking to do in the summer. My view is this;

 

Release:

Jones

Hutchinson

Lee

Pelupessy

Winnall

Nuhui

 

Loans sent back;

Windass

Bates

De Cruz

Murphy

Windass

 

Sell;

Van Aken - Small fee

Lees - 1 million

Odobajo - Free

Reach - £3-5 million (if not then keep)

Rhodes - Free

 

New contracts;

Fox

Fletcher (smaller wage)

FF (smaller wage if not release)

 

That leaves;

GK- New First choice keeper

GK - Wildsmith

GK - Dawson

RB - New first choice RB

RB - Palmer

LB - Fox 

LB - Penney

CB - Iorfa

CB - Borner

CB - Experienced CB

CB - Young CB

CM - Big Strong Ball Winner

CM - Box to box midfielder with energy

CM - Adcanced playmaker

CM - Luongo

CM - Bannan

Winger/Forward - Harris 

Winger/Forward - FF

Winger/Forward - New

Winger/Forward - New

CF - Fletcher

CF - Mobile strong CF

CF - Young fast and likes to run in behind

 

Thats 11 new signings I feel we need, keeping 12 of this squad. 

 

If only the real world was like football manager.

Thanks for posting - that is a very clear picture of where we are at with the squad. 
Need to be planning now, but don’t know which league we are planning for and who will be making the decisions on the squad

But then we’d have to sign over 20 players in one summer??

Good post, but isn’t the big problem going to be that if Paixao is making the transfer decisions then we’re just going to end up with the same type of player. Things will only change if a manager who knows the leagues is allowed to bring in his own players that he knows will fit a planned system.

Whoever our manager is I will be really pi$$ed off if he dishes out new contracts to anyone apart from maybe Fletcher and Fox although I’m not massively bothered about him.

I do now think there is a chance we will start next season in L1 so we would probably have to do as you suggest.

Even for a team with a successful trqck record of recruitment that rebuild is a tough job.

 

Add the potential lack of funds, FFP troubles, uncertain management situation and outward view of our declining club I can't see us building a squad capable of being top half Championship or better. More likely it'll be similar quality to the squads of yesteryear under Laws, Irvine etc.

Not bad, you've forgotten Alex Hunt and Urhoghide who I'd keep.

I'd also release Bannan and FF. We can't keep serial failures here.

If we get relegated, we'll be relying heavily on U23 players coming through.

Is Monks contract up as well. As all the player into the last year of their contracts Lees, Bannan, Reach, Westwood, Rhodes, Palmer will be sat in the stands not allowed to play its the DC way because they have done so well for us they get to put their feet up for the last year.

 

The summer will not solve anything we will just sink further into the poo.

 

We change our year end to sort the financial problem but what this now means is players cannot be signed till our year end 31 July 2020 because we are still losing too many losses, which will mean they miss pre-season with us.

 

we could well be starting next season with just 13 or 14 players plus youth players.

If we are still in the championship for ntext season,   get rid of the dead wood.

 

If we are in league one.     panic (it took Sheffield United a long time to get out the league one,  took Leeds 3 years)   there will be some positives we don't have to play the likes of Leeds
