must keep our core players next season

to stand a chance of staying up

jonas, jose, nolan, carroll, steve taylor, routledge, guthrie, and colo

we must keep them, no cashing in to make a few quid.

and we need a new top striker, a top creative midfielder, a left back and a right back. all top quality as well, and a new winger that can play on either flank.


harper
krul

simpson cover rtaylor

s taylor cover kadar
colo cover williamson

guti and routledge on the wings
guthrie nolan smith barton

and up top

carroll cover ranger
ameobi and lover competing for another place


a pacy striker is a must, and pace in the midfield certainly. and if possible a good dead ball specialist, something we havent had since nobby/robert. if we can get a great pacy midfielder who can create and take great free kicks, its a must.

We won't get all of that in one summer...*

What we need is one or two additions to the squad in various areas - some improvements, others just to cover - not too much, and we'll stay up.

Then the following summer we improve again.

I'd love it to happen all at once, but it's not going to.

And tbh, too many changes doesn't always have a positive affect. We'll have the excuses "they're blending as a team" "they need time to gel" etc etc...

*just read your post again, and we probably could get all that in one summer. Thought there was more than that when I read it at first. Confused Big Grin

If BArton can sort himself out and stay fit he could feel like our first new signing. He was a good player at Man. C and should have been good for us. He certainly owes us and no club will come in for him with his record so who knows? maybe he can surprise us all.

Won us the game at Peterbrough. Were never really comfortable until he scored that free kick.

You're both right. He can tackle when he puts his mind to it but no LL has mentioned him piroetting and running backward sall of the time...he does it loads!

Aye that lets him down, because clearly he can tackle.

It's ok to back off upto a certain point but he doesn't close them down quick enough around the edge of the box. He's only young though, and hopefully that is something he'll realise as a weakness and sort out, defenders usually get better as they get older.
