Summer Signings Verdict
1 1

So then, Jay O'Shea is confirmed which makes it 9 summer signings so far.

This includes:

Joe Murphy

Phil Edwards

Joe Skarz

Adam Thompson

Eoghan O'Connell

Stephen Dawson

Callum Reilly

Jay O'Shea

Jermaine Beckford

 

What are our predictions on next season? The squad we've assembled is easily the best I've seen in my lifetime and we should be pushing that top 6 next year. Very excited about the prospect of our 'front 6' in Mayor, Reilly, Dawson, O'Shea, Beckford and Vaughan. Defence looks solid on paper too!

Are we to expect anymore signings? I think that's around 22 players contracted now. Are we all happy with what we've seen (financial debate, aside)? Which positions do we need to add too?

It's going to be one hell of a season!!

A back up keeper?

At the moment still got Williams I think. Maybe need him to go first.

Makes you wonder what is going on? Who or what is paying for it all?

I'll be avin a cheeky each way bet on us to win the league top 6 easily providing we don't have a season of injuries like the last one.

Not impressed by the local beer either.. Longing for a drop of Speckled Hen! Poor boy. At least he has the transfer activity to raise his spirits.

Now now, OP said financial considerations aside! Let's just have one thread without it being taken over by "where's the money coming from". Please, just one.

21 gone/going out. Can anyone name them all?!  Presumably a couple coming in on loan then that's it?  Possibly McAleny and a keeper, Gillespie or Woodman? Looks like no Aldred or Otzumer?

You have to be thinking top 6 with this squad. Favourites are Blackburn, Wigan and Portsmouth, surely we can match them now.

McAleny is being released. Though, he'll get a Championship move, or join his mates down at Oxford. Once Williams is moved on I imagine we'll find a young number 2. And I agree with you on Aldred and Otzumer, don't think they will happen anymore.

Aldred had a medical today apparently

If he signs, god help Clark picking 2/3 CBs out of Cameron, Thompson, O'Connell and Aldred! All top end League One defenders on their day (from what we've seen and heard).
