So every time we don't win promotion we should change the entire squad? Brilliant, that'll work.

I suspect you were eyeing Barnsley enviously last season and suggesting we should copy their model, now it's Rotherham. 🙈

1, where did I mention Barnsley and 2 how many times are we on the verge of promotiion. Well it didnt work work this time you answered it that yourself.  I stated my argument, whats yours.

Ambitious 

I think retaining most of the squad is even more ambitious. Ok lets retain part of the squad get shot of the long term/ injury prone players and lets stop signing journey men. on big money. It aint working. Sunderland stopped doing that some years ago and at least they have a chance of getting out of this league. Rotherham very raely sign anyone of notde and look whats happened there. There problem is they cant build on success, I just wish we had the opportunity. Look at the average of our squad, 28. I bet most of these players have had at 5 or 6 possibly more clubs in their career up to signing for Wednesday. It seldom works.

My argument would be we just missed out on promotion after a chaotic summer trying to assemble a new squad. Let's not over react and simply strengthen where we can. Evolution over revolution.

Why get John Jules back. A player that has been injured almost every minute of his time here. A player that has struggled with injuries through out his career. If we are cutting our cloth I would let Luongo, Hutchinson and Iorfa move on also I think. 

We have supporters who have a fasination in retaining crocks. I dont get it.

You have to get rid of some of the older players.

 

Theyre only getting to get worse not better.

 

Of course we need some experience but some young blood required.

 

I’d guess Hutch and Luongo will go.

 

 

I stayed long enough to watch the players reaction at the end. Luongo and BPF both made a point of applauding all sides of Hillsborough. Looked like goodbye to me.

All the old guard need selling ir releasing for well needed funds 

 

We need to stop living in this fantasy that they will deliver 

 

Some have been here 6 years and not done what they was paid to do and that was get us promoted (championship and league 1)

Honest opinion (I do like some of the ones I'd get rid off but I'm being realistic, I'd replace them if possible)

 

BPF (not get back), Dawson (keep), Wildsmith (release)

 

 

 

Palmer (release), Hunt (keep)

 

 

 

Storey (get back), Dean (get back), Iorfa (release, if sticking to recent formation, otherwise keep), Hutchinson (keep, as a backup), Dunkley (release), Brennan (loan out), Gibson (don't get back)

 

 

 

Johnson (keep), Brown (sell/release)

 

 

 

Bannan (keep), Byers (keep), Luongo (keep, only as backup), FDB (release), Adeniran (release), Alex Hunt (loan)

 

 

 

Shodipo (don't get back), NML (release/don't bring back), Windass (release, too many injuries)

 

 

 

Paterson (keep as backup), Sow (sell/release), Kamberi (don't get back), Gregory (keep), John-Jules (don't get back), Berahino (release)

Where were our weak links this season?

 

1. Real pace up front (still)

2. Legs in midfield

3. Bannan being our only creator.

4. Sloppy on set pieces

5. Lack of ball-playing defenders for a team trying to play out from the back.

 

Assuming we're going to carry on playing 3-5-2, I'd therefore look to bring in;

 

1. A pacey striker to play up with Gregory.

2. A good young stand-in/alternative for Gregory 

3. A replacement for Luongo in midfield (though maybe Adenarin is the man?)

4. A technical/skillful ball-carrying winger/forward midfielder

5. 2x centre backs comfy and capable of playing put from the back

6. A proper old head centre back (e.g. Dean)

7. Reliable Goalkeeper (BPF was fine, just can't see him coming back)

 

 

All those will take us up a level and enable us to play consistently better football on the deck.

Lets assume no loan players come back, though would take BPF and Storey in an instant.

 

Of the out of contract player i'd keep, Hunt, Luongo, Hutchinson, Berahino and maybe NML.

 

Let SOW, Paterson, Dunkley and Wildsmith go.

 

New GK, 2 new centre backs, 2 new wing backs, a holding midfield player, a new striker

 

So we'd have

 

New GK, Dawson, Render

 

Plamer, Iorfa, Hutchinson, Brennan plus 2 new CB's

 

New RWB, Hunt

 

New LWB, Johnson

 

Bannan Luongo, Byers, FDB, Adenarin,  New CM

 

Gregory, Widnass, Berahino, New Striker

 

Maybe NML though not sure where he fits, he's not a wing back.

 

I'd also focus on trying to sign younger players too.

 

 

Render was one of the U23s told he was going to be released like Waldock etc

Think we need a couple of wing backs too, add some proper competition for places for Hunt and Johnson.
