The excited kid in me is frustrated by the quietness on the transfer front... 11:03 - Jul 1 with 1502 viewsOriginalMarkyP

...but the almost 50 year old me reflects that this is probably a good thing.

After last off season's conveyor belt approach that felt more like supermarket sweep than an actual transfer market strategy at times, I'm convincing myself that a lot more cautious approach means spending money wisely and only on the right players.

I hope.

Are you going to post a variation on this every day until we sign somebody? Please find a hobby.

Why are you frustrated though? We were clearly never going to have another summer like last years. It was about adding quality to what we already have. Other than a LB/LWB and Celina/another, I can't see us signing anyone else unless somebody leaves (e.g Hladky & Pigott).

Spot on, I don't think the money is there within the budget . Lots spent on wages I would expect so we may well end up with a couple of late loans to fluff out the squad and not much else.

The yanks will expect results this year or heads will roll. they are not in this for fun.

I think money is there, and will be spent if need be. We've just managed to acquire 3 good players on frees (albeit Ladapo and Ball will probably be up there as high earners in League 1) and a very decent loan signing (who will not be cheap at all) in John-Jules.

I am concerned myself, I was hoping to see us improve on Norwood/Bonne and bring in a Celina standard player to replace him. The frees and loans so far haven't suggested we have replaced any of them at all. We also need cover at the back as we are an injury away from a problem.

I am not sure Lapados 15 goals will be enough to take us above 11th, we need some firepower in there.

It’s pretty hard to replace Norwood and Bonne’s goals under McKenna.

I make it 5 goals between them in the 24 league games McKenna took charge. A goal each every 10 games. Shouldn’t be the most difficult problem we face this year, should it?

You have up to 2 months to wait with the TW closing 01 Sept. The squad is in place, we have at least 2 players in all positions. The only thing now is improving what we have if the opportunity arises but it likely requires a player or 2 out on loan or to be sold based on EFl squad rules.
