    The immediate overhaul required.
    10-14 players required
    We will / have see the same amount leave.
    Backroom staff - are we replacing or just cutting the unnecessary ?

    Is it expected to happen in this window or spread to the next? Has the interviews with owners and manager gave an indication ?

    Would you be happy to keep and use players knowing it was only till January?

    It will take 3 windows then you will see the team that the owners expect to take us forward. I'm sure they would love to get promotion like us this season but realistically there are too many ifs and buts and overall of staff and players for this to happen. It may happen but very unrealistic
    I think in a years time is when we are not paying out money for players who have already left and the likes of Rodwell finally off our books.

    Totally agree, those who are expecting us to tear up this league this season need to lower their expectations and just enjoy league 1 for what it is then build from there

    Not expecting us to tear up the league but would hope we're competitive enough to keep us in the play off race at least.

    Hopefully. In addition to the obvious big waged underperforming players as a legacy from our top flight zombification, our main problem is going to be that we're the scalp for everyone else in the league (without allowing for derbies, of course).

    It certainly won’t be done this window. Far too much work and it closes in what, 7 weeks.

    Worrying what they choose to prioritise if that’s the case.

    The task facing the Don, Charlie Charles and Jack Ross is a mammoth one.
    This is really starting to hit home.
    Do some people on here really believe we will be top 2 ??
    My guess is the majority who do believe that will be under the age of 18.
    If we get in to a play off position, JR will have done great.
    I have a feeling we will have a much stronger 2nd half to the season as I believe the first 3 months will be very up n down due to all the upheaval that's coming our way.

    Closes 9/8.
    56 days to go:eek::eek:

    We said this when Grayson was appointed, then Coleman.

    It'll take them 2 or 3 windows. 2 or 3 windows later and we still have the same shite.

    I'm expecting a slow start and a late push to 6th after the January window.

    Can't see us getting 20 in, all top 2 quality, with a best 11 known and settled with no lemons this window.

    It's is a poor league mind.
     
  12. If we buy 1 window we get 2 free.

  13. I confess to being a windowlicker in relation to this subject.

    The agents of the ones we need to sell will be playing a long game - don't accept anything too early as we might panic as the end of the window approaches.
    I'm happy to write off the first few months if it means a coherent long term plan.
    Maybe I need to get used to the idea of back to back promotions starting in 2020.

    After this window closes we will still have the overpaid prima donnas who want their contracts maintained and will not have McNair ,Honeyman,Gooch and Asoro. So at least another window which means promotion not as guaranteed as some think.

    Blackburn, Rotherhsm and Wigan managed. Promotion this season is the expectation.
     
  18. So 3 windows because of Rodwell? Or because that’s how long it takes a manager to assemble a squad?

    I do think we will do very well this season but Im more than happy to be patient and allow the new owners/manager the time they need. They are literally rebuilding this utter shambles from top to bottom and that takes time and money. I absolutely do not expect some instantaneous transformation, Im in it for the long run.

    There is a brilliant documentary about Sir Alex Ferguson on Netflix, he talks about how long it takes to build a championship winning side. I am happy to give the new guys the time they need, we have tried the hire and fire model and it took us down to league 1
