As stated 11 players signed by NW, players allowed out on loan, recovery periods during international breaks etc. The squad size, fitness and playing players in there right positions etc is down to NW. Not many strikers could score many goals with NW tactics anyway. NW is only part of the problem but he has to carry the biggest load.
Effectively what you imply is needing at least 8 to 10 good players next season all match fit and ready to go. Neither the manger is up for it and neither the money or players are available.
Some of what you state is questionable but I do admire your explanation and defense of NW.
yes, if you get a player worth millions on a free, its a bargin. i dont get whats so hard to understand about that. do you think you dont pay wages if you have to pay a transfer fee? the wages are likely the same regardless whether signed on a free or for a fee. so avoiding the transfer is obviously desirable as you potentially save millions in fees.
i really dont get whats hard to understand about this. its literally why clubs wait till summer for players contracts to expire so they dont have to pay transfer fees.
Thats what I thought. He scored more than any of our players (just) in a team so bad they got relegated.
If Warnock can sort our team out to provide something approaching decent service, he could be a good acquisition. Or at least as good as we can expect if we're rebuilding on a tight budget.
