It’s really positive that we managed to get those 4 core players over the line. Serious issues ahead for all non PL teams, you’d hope that we could still pick up some freebies on a short term contract for low wages, if not loans. What a nightmare. So pleased we have Gibson - I know he has his critics but he won’t let us go under. 

Or, alternatively, we've wasted money on areas of the team where we already had numbers, and the areas of the team that were weaknesses last season are still weaknesses now.

Books need to be balanced - need a couple out before a couple come in I heard.

Sorry this makes no sense.

Firstly who do we need to let go? We can barely put a bench together as it is.

Secondly 6 players left with a combined reporters weekly wage of near (if not) beyond 100k.

So far 4 have come in and whilst I am not slightly ITK i will bet everything i possess them four are not taking up anywhere near a 100k.

Under the circumstances I think that we would have to consider any serious offer for anybody? (I haven’t been told this I’m speculating) At the same time there are saleable players that it would be easier to manage without than others. Pears is one. And if we are overloaded anywhere it would be midfield.

Yeah agree. Think that we would consider a bid for any of our players regardless of whether covid was about or not. Not a dig at the club but 99% of professional teams will sell they players if an acceptable offers comes along.

I would sacrifice Fry for a good fee. I feel we could replace him and strengthen other areas. And still have change left over. Obv if recruitment is correct. Big IF i know.

Whos giving us even close to a good fee to a player who can't get in the side ahead of a central midfielder and a right back right now?

All those who left got the contracts in, or the season after, the PL season. It’s reasonable to assume that the budget we’re working to now isn’t what it was then, not even close. It might not even be the budget we were working to a fortnight ago to be honest. Either way the rumour is that we need to move a couple on. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Are we anywhere closer to bringing in pace and creativity the crucial component on us being in a relagation fight or challenging for promotion. We still have no wingers

I get the point, but it sounds like Fry hasn't been playing because he's still short of fitness after catching Covid in the summer.

Signed for Charlton I'm afraid...we've missed(dodged)* that boat(bullet)*.

I'll go for "we've dodged that boat."

Do reckon Bowyer will be a good influence on him. We'll see how much desire he has in the next 2 seasons.

Do think it's funny that Maddison has been going on like he's the world's least wanted footballer and now Charlton/Bowyer are going on like it's been something they've been trying to do for ages. Sounds to me more like Maddison was hoping for Championship nibbles and got sod all.

If you believe the Peterborough chairman, Charlton nearly signed him before he went on loan to Hull in january.
