I think its going to be very difficult to improve much next season, both in terms of squad quality and league position. With that in mind, I have a feeling NW may well jump before he's pushed, ushering in the era of Blackwell and Jepson.

Warnock has to hit the ground running next season and his summer signings have to inspire. If the fans are back in and they are watching hoofball without wins then the level of scepticism will grow very quickly and the Riverside will become toxic. Judging by his after match comments the lack of atmosphere at games has seemingly created a false sense of security as well as reality.

Despite the stuff I often post here, I am (like most fans, I suspect) the eternal optimist...hoping against all expectations that things will be better next season.

Given our manager and financial situation, there isn't much cause to be hopeful, but until our transfer business is concluded, we can't really slate Warnock for what he hasn't done yet.

I'd like to think he can find players that will respond to his methods better than our current lot...but I'm not holding my breath.

...or if we're lucky they'll decide to go as well and we can start with a clean slate. Maybe Gibson could give a certain Brazilian former No.10 a call and see if he fancies being our next saviour?

Out of the 18 named in today's matchday squad, Bolasie, Archer, Johnson and Bettinelli are unlikely to be here next season. Coulson, Akpom and Spence are seemingly being nudged towards the exit door. Saville has been told he's not worth the money and McNair wasn't mentioned in his "core" speech this week. Five are kids sat on the bench leaving just four players, Howson, Hall, Bola and Watmore seemingly knowingly included in Warnock's plans for next season. Howson to me looks like his legs have gone which doesn't leave much to work with even allowing for the return of Fry, Tav Fisher and Dijskteel.

It's little wonder we witnessed the shocker that we did today but it's also alarming as to how the club has sunk to this low point.

There were suggestions this last week that Archer was likely to get another contract as back up keeper.

That was then, this is now. Having said that someone obviously thought Bettinelli was better than Stojanovic so what do I know?

Have you heard that minds have changed about Archer?

Okay i did not care about the result today so that I watched the Rotherham game instead and then later stages of derby vs shef wed game. I thought when i saw we lost 3-0 okay we probably put kids out and Wycombe sent their massive giants out and bullied us from start to finish but I looked at the team sheet and thought eh we put out our main players, so my question is were they on holiday today and not putting in any effort or were we really that bad to get beat 3-0?

Today looked like one of those games where an organised team were playing 11 strangers dragged in from the car park half an hour before kick off..  no-one was terrible but nobody seemed to know how to up their game. Might just be me, but does anyone else think we haven't had a leader on the pitch very often this season, just to chew people out a bit when they need it

We have had someone that could be a leader in Morsy but hasn't had the captaincy instead we gave it to Britt for most of it.....who should have really been stripped of it after a few games with his attitude but continued on all the way to late march if memory serves me well.

We definitely haven't. I remember when the players had started coming back and we were waiting to hear who replaced George, Howson himself wasn't all too convinced about the idea of being captain. He's not a leader but I imagine a proper professional who leads by example in training and whatnot. Britt was a very odd choice considering he didn't even want him on the pitch half the time but given the lack of options, I'm not all too sure it would have made a difference who in our current squad got the armband.

I think making Britt captain was one of the key moments in ruining the season.

    • I assumed Crooks was signed with Saville money. Been reported in media and those ITK on here that we got £1.5m for Sav We spent £1.1m on Crooks.
    • It's not a dumb thing to do if it's a Player that is wanted and delay would mean missing out (as we often have in the past), raising short term finance is commonplace in a business just as it is in people's private lives, so very far from "dumb". Buying something now knowing that you can recoup your costs by selling an asset in a few weeks is not unusual. Crooks could also arguably be the replacement for McNair in Midfield. We are currently short of a CB and struggling on the left side of defence and signing two left sided defenders would cover not only McNair as a CB but also Bola who seems to be a doubt and Coulson who seemingly isn't trusted as a defender. One out and three in is making the squad stronger for a hectic schedule ahead. Players out of contract may come "free" to the uninitiated but because they are "free" their agent will be negotiating a signing on fee and better wages in lieu of that fee.  Selling Akpom, Spence and Coulson may be on the cards, certainly I suspect with the first two but if nobody wants them or is prepared to pay anything for them then what? Do we sign nobody and hope that the kids can make the step up? Are we hoping that SG has found a wedge of unexpected cash down the back of one of his Sofa's? The Global Pandemic has hit Governments let alone businesses hard, Bulkhaul and MFC are no exception, their profits will not have been immune to the decline and that's before we throw in the effects of Brexit in general and its impact on haulage in particular. Ideally we can keep him but considering Clubs outside of the Premiership were and still are in danger of going to the wall last season we can't spend something that we haven't got. It may not be McNair, it could be Tav or Fry but I suspect that we will need to raise as much as we can from somewhere especially with the South American links if they come off and that's before we take FFP into consideration.
    • yes, let's sign some more players
    • @oneboro just to make you aware of the latest ad plight!
    • That’s weird, I don’t understand how the algorithms work, I keep getting funeral related ads, as if I really want to organise another one of those! Mind you, I bought a fridge a while back and my iPad seems to think that I need another one. You would think these things would be a bit more intelligent in this day and age.
