we aren’t out of place, and a lot of teams have lost more players than us 

swansea and Norwich have done well but can’t say there are many other clubs who’s signings are that exciting  

Barnsley 1

Birmingham 4

Blackburn 1

Bournemouth 0

Brentford 1

Bristol 1 

Cardiff 2

Coventry 3

Derby 3

Huddersfield 1

Luton 1

Boro 1

Millwall 4 

Norwich 10 (some decent signings in there)

id counter this by saying how many other squads barely survived relegation last season with a thin squad, and have lost 5/6 senior players this summer while only bringing in one replacement?  i dont know the answer but i  assume not many, and for me, thats the real worry of this transfer window.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

Its the same story throughout the league.. teams have lost players and can’t afford to bring in

I'd like to see a table representing the net effect i.e. incomings minus outgoings. That would paint a truer picture.

I don’t think the club have hired Warnock with promotion in mind, not for one second.

I think the club have hired him to achieve mid table because it lessens the risk of us getting relegated whilst COVID is still affecting football’s finances. I think the plan is to ride out COVID, wait until normality has returned, then appoint a new man the following season.
 

It seems to me that this year it’s all about keeping the spending down and treading water. 

Don't buy that at all.  I don't see Warnock being enticed back to management with a nice 14th placed finish in mind.

i dont think it is though, we've lost 5 first team players from last season, 9 if you include loan players, i have had a quick look and no other team iv seen has done the same, or if they have they wernt scrapping for relegation like we were.

To be fair we dont know what really happened. He could have conceivably gone down to Cornwall to speak to Warnock. I remember the will he, wont he saga with Clayton and he did very well for us. It may be that the woman in payroll cant work out his wages unless he starts on the 1st of the month. Next Tuesday is when it will all happen.

Possibly took a holiday when the season finished and is on lockdown for two weeks as per rules...who knows?

An owner who has a historical dislike of football agencies and agents resulting in past legal battles (Jonathan Barnett legal slur case) and a manager whose known to prefer player recruitment through agencies with his own family having had past relationships between club employees and intermediaries when he was manager at that club.

What could go wrong with our recruitment and ‘This won’t end well with Warnock’, indeed.

You’re missing the point though, there’s another list similar if not longer of players we’ve lost to other clubs. That’s the worry, looks like you can add sanogo and Stewart to that. If those 2 are where we are on the list then god knows who’s names gonna pop up next.

Says who? I haven't seen a single article that says we were after so & so the only names I've seen have been on here within minutes, We don't know if anyone else is coming in
