We have one Team already


Recommended Posts

Trying to be positive after the huge disappointment of Monday night I do feel we are perhaps in a slighly stronger position than we were this time last year.

 

If I am correct the following players are contracted to the club next season.

 

We all witnessed how we have been ravaged by injuries in recent years so now we need to recruit another team of players in addition to hopefully make us stronger and more capable of going for the two automatic promotion slots:

 

Dawson

 

Palmer

Iorfa

Hutch

Brennan

Johnson

 

FDB

Byers

Bannan

 

Windass

Gregory

 

The key to the automatic places will be to not just add quantity but some real extra quality.

Agree, last summer we needed a new squad. Not every signing was going to work out. 
 

This summer we probably need 8-10 players. Half of them for the first team team.

Easy to forget Dennis Adeniran contracted to June 2023 too. Time he fulfilled his promise

If we can hold onto all of those players I reckon we will have a good shot at promotion next season, regardless of who we bring in.

 

Like, even if we end up only bringing in players for the bench & squad depth, if the above starting XI can mostly stay fit all season then that is already a very good starting line-up for league one. If it were up to me I would look to bring in squad depth in the form of exciting but unproven youngsters from lower leagues. Give them playing time off the bench or when the starters need resting or are injured, and if any of the younguns are impressing then the spot is theirs to lose.

 

Anyway, I'm feeling pretty positive overall and looking forward to seeing who we bring in. Last summer seemed to be a corner turned in terms of recruiting and let's hope it's more of the same this summer.

Could even manage a 4-3-3 with the players available, with a couple of options for rotation.

 

Dawson

 

Palmer

Iorfa/Brennan

Hutch

Johnson/Brown

 

FDB/Adeniran

Byers/Hunt

Bannan

 

Sow

Gregory

Windass

According to The Star just yesterday, Paterson, Hunt and Berahino all have one year extension options on their contracts so the club could retain them if they wanted without them exploring the market. Hutchinson is one of those without a new deal in place at the moment so should come off the list.

Actually, that's not right. He signed a one year extension earlier this year.

I don’t think we’ll add that many personally,  we need to get away from huge summer overhauls 

 

It killed us for first half of this season, Ipswich fetched loads in and have also struggled all season 

 

Quality over quantity is required this summer,  2 centre half’s 2 strikers and maybe a wide attacker for me , depending on what system he wants to play possibly look at a full back

This is interesting, honestly I'd be tempted to keep all 3. Might not be starting every game but they've all had their moments this season and could be really useful squad players.

Yeah, that's why I originally included that note. But a number of other sources reckon he extended the deal last year until summer 2023.

Hope so.

 

I've now just found another source from last September (which includes quotes from Hutchinson himself) suggesting that reports of his contract extension were not accurate. So it looks like The Star have got it right after all.

Interestingly Darren Purse was mentioned in another thread today and in some ways our situation mirrors that summer under Brian Laws  when he brought in Purse, O'Connor and Potter after the team had had a resonable season.

 

Someone on here referred to them as the "Cream of the Crap".

 

I really feel that this summer is abouit adding some extra quality if in perhaps just a few positions to make the team stronger.

We were 2 wins off getting automatic promotion, I dont think we need to reinvent the wheel we just need to cut out the sloppy last minute goals and stop drawing to many games against weaker teams.

I think only 1 season since 2015 have we signed fewer than 10 players on full signing and loans throughout the season, this level of changed every year means we are taking 10-15 games into a season to get a formation, players and system that fits.

 

if DM sticks with the 3-5-2 we need a decent keeper, a few central defenders, a couple of wing backs (not full back or wingers), another striker or two.

 

of course this all depends who get retained.

Need a left back then we could switch to 4.4.2 for games when we’re struggling in midfield 

 

BPF

Storey Dean Hutch 

Hunt Byers Luongo Baz Johnson 

gregory Windass 

 

hook Storey and Byers for Parmer and the new left back and push both full backs up, gives Hunt and Johnson help and pushes the opponent’s back

                                 BPF

                    Hutch          Dean

parmer                                          new L back

 

Hunt        Luongo        Baz             Johnson 

 

                Gregory        Windass 

 

Yes I know some of this lot won’t be here and yes I know we may have new players, just using names as an example. And it would give us an instant plan B
