If you look at our squad and transfers so far, the words that come to mind are - 'seriously underwhelming'. We're into pre-season, are still lacking good players in several crucial positions and much of the deadwood in the squad appear to going no-where. Changing the Manager is one thing, perhaps a change in other areas is required.

well of course it would be excellent and would love to see it

Just not sure that PC would get it past Gourlay and co, that their record signing isn't going to be a first teamer this year


Wilson would walk into our side. He is a real talent as he showed at Hull and for Wales this year.
Would love to have him at Reading but we are one of many clubs after him.

He strikes the ball superbly. He scored 7 and had 3 assists in 11 appearances for Hull at the back end of last season. He would start ahead of Aluko.

Yeagh, I already posted Danzell was training in Roeselare 2 weeks ago. But I still didn't receive a message of the post was approved. :S

I wouldn't underestimate him. When he came to Roeselare last season, he wasn't in theorie best shape. But by the end of the season, he showed some good things. I'm curious how he'll do now he van start the season in good shape.

This sums it up pretty well. The WC obviously trumps a lot of transfer news and things like Forest going full Wolves seem to have flown under the radar. It's not too late, but given how other teams have leapt out of the gate i'd prefer us to be further on than a couple of frees and a largely unproven striker from L1. The longer our glaring deficiencies go on, the more expensive it's going to sort them as the window shuts. And we very clearly don't have a huge budget to play with.

Watson going out on loan to Wimbledon

https://twitter.com/AFCWimbledon/status ... 0119643137

Needs first team experience, seems like good move

He needs to prove himself, good that he is getting game time. Fear he might end up not making the grade but time will tell.

Good move I reckon. Hope he stays for and gets plenty of minutes. Who else should we expect out on loan?

sure Sam Smith will go on loan if we get someone else in

Rinomhota is also a good bet

We have a fair amount of prospects available for loan.. presume Southwood, Holmes and Richards could be loaned out too?

Bit risky loaning out Richards right now, especially if Blackett goes. We'd only have 3 full backs, one of which isn't fully fit yet

True but Gunter has never been injured iirc so we are always guaranteed to have at least 1...

And Bacuna I guess?

Forgot Bacuna, that's true. Could send Richards out at Christmas once Obita is back fit.

Maybe tho, my opinion is biased because I'm desperately hoping Blackett get sent somewhere else. Far away.

I have no issue with keeping Blackett as at least he can cover for when 1 or both of McShane and O'Shea get injured.
I'm far more concerned about our quantity of CMs and their perceived lack of quality.
JVDB, Evans, Swift, Edwards, Bacuna, Clement, Meyler and Kelly are not all going to play surely so I would hope 2 would be looking to move on (preferably JVDB and Edwards)

Also our list of wingers is sad to look at..

We are heavily overloaded with central midfielders. I would prefer JVDB and Evans to be offloaded as Edwards does chip in with a few goals.
We must not loan Smith out until we have another striker in otherwise we could start succcessive seasons very light in this crucial area.
