Next Seasons team currently in our possession

Next Seasons team looks like this with who we have signed beyond end of season.

GK: Betts, Butts
LB: Odoi
CB: Ream, Djalo
RB: Cyrus, Freddy (if we have an extension)
CM: McDonald, Cisse, Edun, Johansen, Cairney
RW: Luca, Neeskens
LW: Sess, Ayite
CM: Fonte, Kamara, Woodrow

And whoever graduates from U23/ U18. Perhaps Steven Sess is ready for RB duties, Kait, Humphrys etc.

Only holes seems to be LB and CB, if we stay in this division. If we go up, forget about the map above. We will need 5 - 10 new players to compete in PL

Comments at the last game were that Fred does not have an extension clause in his contract and that this was just speculation.

Cisse and Woodrow will be gone, possibly Djalo too.

To be honest looking at that team frightens me.

The constraints of FFP plus the potential need to replace half the team if you go up make it economically sensible to use the loan market but I do think we’ve over-relied on it this year slightly.

The transfer committee also need to change their approach to negotiations because in any scenario they’ll have to sign a load of players this summer and we need those deals finalised by mid-July this time, not late August or January.

No doubt at all that we need Mitrovic in the team along with that new, big, tall, fast , strong ugly centre half, Those two could cost £25m.
I am not sure how the Fair Play rules restrict us but I am beginning to think we may have to sell Sess. in order to balance the books.

Just need Taggart and Mitro.

Cyrus covers Freds.

Norwood signs too.

Totally agree with Statto.  A bit of a frightener on paper.

Next Seasons team looks like this with who we have signed beyond end of season.

GK: Betts, Butts
LB: Odoi
CB: Ream, Djalo
RB: Cyrus, Freddy (if we have an extension)
CM: McDonald, Cisse, Edun, Johansen, Cairney
RW: Luca, Neeskens
LW: Sess, Ayite
CM: Fonte, Kamara, Woodrow

And whoever graduates from U23/ U18. Perhaps Steven Sess is ready for RB duties, Kait, Humphrys etc.

Only holes seems to be LB and CB, if we stay in this division. If we go up, forget about the map above. We will need 5 - 10 new players to compete in PL

I thought Freddy Adu had retired.

We can always bring him back ala Clint Dempsey...

We are going to lose Fredericks, plus possibly Sess, Cairney, and an outside chance of K Mac.
On top of that we have all of our loan players, not forgetting our manager.

This is not doom mongering, but a possibility that failure to go up two seasons running could break the spirit of some at the club.

Transfer income should be good, but at worse a major team rebuilding programme could be necessary.

Sorry to be so negative and all of this could be avoided if we go up.
