No surprise or great loss, bar the £1m spunked, but Stojanovic has asked to leave.

Which explains him not going to Cornwall.

Shame that as I reckon he could be a decent keeper at Championship level

Would make sense as Akpom is our 2nd choice of 2..

Also what's wrong with moving Wing up top with the front two a sort of No 10

I see Kieran Westwood still available. Would be a good back up to Lumley and some solid competition for him as well.

Can't see him being happy as a backup, I've always been a fan of his although he did make some bloody awful mistakes last season. Still better than Bettinelli, mind.

Just looking through the list of keepers without a club apart from Westwood

Luke Daniels aged 33 ex Brentford

Frank Fielding aged 33 ex QPR

Stephen Henderson ex Palace aged 33

Lee Camp aged 36 Ex Birmingham

I can see us going for an unattached GK and probably someone with experience given Lumley at 27 is by no means old for a keeper

I've seen quite a range of expectations floating around here and on social media, and the most common one is that we are going to be in and around the play offs. 

As things stand, I'm going with 10th to 12th again personally, but I know that's not what everyone thinks. 

I think the play-offs would be hitting the jackpot for us this season. The absolute best we can hope to achieve.

Of course everything depends on how well the new arrivals integrate into the squad, how effectively they can carry out the manager's instructions...and whether or not Warnock has any new tricks up his sleeve to make us a better team.

But set against that are the three teams relegated from the PL and another 3 or 4 teams who were significantly better than us last season.

Its a hell of an ask considering how we played last season. We've made a number of signings, but none of them exactly screams quality or represents a big improvement over the players that have left.

With my optimist's hat on I would like to think we could finish 5th or 6th. More realistically I think we're looking at another top 10 finish.

 

Also don't forget they'll be playing in front of fans again. If they serve up some of the dross we witnessed last season, I don't imagine the atmosphere will be particularly pleasant.

The first half of the season wasn't bad to be fair but the drop off in the second half was very poor and injuries killed our momentum.

I don't think we would have been quite so poor with fans in the stadium holding players to account, I also think Warnock struggled with empty stadiums

A very fair assessment of where we are AR

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
