Is this squad capable of getting promoted?


Recommended Posts

Last time we were relegated this is who we signed in the 2010/11 season:

 

Nicky Weaver, Jon Otsemobor, Reda Johnson, Mark Reynolds, Michael Morrison, Danny Batth, Rob Jones, Daniel Jones, Chris Sedgwick, Giles Coke, Gary Teale, Gary Madine, Neil Mellor, Clinton Morrison, Paul Heffernan

 

And we still only finished 15th even after making all those signings.

 

So far this time we’ve signed no one. Next season is going to be tough and we’ll do well to stay up

I remember being quite impressed with our recruitment back then, the season wasn't going too bad and then we got thrashed 5-1 at Exeter around Christmas time and just fell apart. Irvine couldn't get the best from the squad, feels completely different under Moore but the recruitment is non existent at the moment.

I'm more concerned about relegation again than promotion. 


Surviving next season in league 1 without admin, liquidation, relegation or any further points deductions would be a huge achievement from where the club is currently

Bang on there.Priority has to be staying in L1 this season and also doing everything we can into making sure that we still have a football club to support given the utter mess that DC has made.

Currently the starting 11 would be good enough

Green             Paterson         Windass

Trouble is can't see that 11 being fit all season...we need some decent players in to supplement and enhance those players. I do think that a proper pre-season will mean we don't have anything like the injuries we had this past season

Yes.

 

That Embargo fella is going to romp us home to silverware.

He's a bit soft. No chance as things stand tho; lacking goals, mental toughness - we need some leaders in all areas of the club.

We'll be adding 5 - 7 players to that list.

There’s more chance of booking a D Taxi than that 11 all playing at the same time for us next season

I agree, that starting 11 should be good enough for at least the play offs. I can however see at least 3 players leaving.

I think we need 8-10 new first team capable players and to hope that 5 or 6 of the young players are genuinely good enough and can contribute at a first team level right away.

 

That's not for promotion either. I consider that the minimum foundation to just remain competitive in the league and maybe sit somewhere in upper mid table. 

 

I think the squad needs to look something like this, accounting for players who I expect to leave and assuming we actually do any recruitment. Even then, I think this leave us relatively threadbare, and there's still some players here I'd expect to leave;
