They were only deadwood on inflated wages as we turned them into such by offering above the market transfer fees and hideously expensive contracts.

So because we've got our fingers burnt due to our own stupidity we now advocate going the other way and taking a minimal risk policy to see if a players good or not then if not punting them back whence they came.

As I said before in another thread as a novel idea let's start cultivating our academy players and start employing scouts who can actually identify talent with a view to potential development without having to pay ridiculous transfer fees.

Jayden Bogle, Jayden Mitchell Lawson and Luke Thomas suggest we already employ such scouts, in the West country at least.

Apart from Bogle I wouldn't say any of the other 2 are regular first teamers and would their professional development be hindered by lack of opportunities due to loanees in the first team?

Thomas is out on loan and playing regularly one level below, Mitchell Lawson is promising but far from ready for Championship football, a loan spell may do him good too.

If we bring in loanees from a higher level, and send our youngsters out to learn at a lower level, I don't see how that's unhelpful in the long term.

It's just where we are in the food chain ATM, the hope would be that once the likes of Wilson return to parent clubs, our own youngsters would be better able to step up to our first team.

I’m happy with loans. Also ffp dictates as we’re not exactly loaded. With Lowe, Thomas, Sibley, Bogle we have players coming through. Not sure how ready they are but I’d rather try them than sign has beens as we did last season. For me it’s loans, youth or lower league players for lower fees like Marriott. No more deadwood on over inflated wages.

Numbnuts lol did you have to look that up in your online thesaurus. 

 

 

Admittedly, I know neither of the posters above, but I would have thought "Numbnuts" would have been one of the first words to spring to mind, under the above circumstances?

I don’t want to borrow any more players, can we get some of our own please 

Prefer to buy at end of season when we know which league we are playing in and if the likes of Mount, and Wilson have left .😊

To say we had little money to spend last summer still splashed out on Marriott/Waghorn,so it does look like the loan market for us.

The down side of that is if we do manage to go up and all the loan players return to there clubs look at the players we have left then look at the bottom club in the prem and see if any of these players would get in there side,that will tell you every thing on the team we have

You dont all of a sudden get the prem money as a lump sum its part TV money and were you finish in table,so whether we spend now we certainly would need to spend big in the summer.

We do need more defensive cover though,we just cant keep a clean sheet,yesterdays game was a 1-0 game all day long but couldnt keep them out

In the previous transfer window our signings were paid for by sales. Maybe its going to be the same again this time?

Not sure how so many folk seem to have forgotten that we only spent a net £1 mill last summer! Er, hallo! Remember that lad Vydra... 😜

True, however I thought we brought players in before we sold Vydra ?

We did but that does not affect the net spend does it? They knew Vyds was going it was just a question of how much they could get for him.

It was very noticeable that we were doing very little business until Vydra went. It seemed as though we were risking losing our targets waiting for Vydra to leave.

Something tells me (lampard) we have next to no money to spend and anything we do spend will be raised in transfers.

Once again I may be wrong, but I thought we did all, if not most before Vydra left?

Seems a big gamble if so, how did they know he was going and if so then surely if you are reliant on your incomings you would do them first?
