An accident waiting to happen?
« on: July 11, 2018, 06:43:41 PM »
I'll kick this off.

A newly promoted Premiership club half way through July with a looming end of season deadline has a tiny squad and has yet to sign a single new player.

They lose a highly qualified coach who has served them thro thick and thin

The coach refuses to sign a contract extension.

This is a club yet again destined to fail through CRASS MANAGEMENT.

Every bookie prediction looks likely - when is someone going to stand up and be accountable?

I was looking forward to an enjoyable if up and down season.  Quite honestly I see only despair.

Mike, take a happy pill, we haven't lost SJ yet.

But boy am I worried about the complete lack of signings. I'm sure we will make some, but soooo late (and will it be enough?).

There are lots of promising leads at the moment. Seri, mitrovic, mussachio, Marchand, augustinsson, Kalas and potentially a new Contract for sessegonon. High quality players and lots of sources saying deals are very close to Completion. If 4 of those materialised this week I'd be happy. So I'll give it a few days before I go back to ranting, and see what happens.

Guys, I wish I shared your optimism.  That said I have a bottle of the happy pill in hand awaiting second half .....

Slavisa not signing keeps everybody on their toes. Any promises about money available and first team targets  have to be honoured else he walks. He's our guarantee that things get done.

Just waiting for the domino effect, Seri says no thanks tomorrow, followed by Mitrovic on Friday, then Sess.--------etc.

Come on Fulham get that first signing through the door before the weekend.

Did your other 5 posts provide this much insight as well? Just wondering.

Still plenty of time to turn this around. There is probably alot going on in the background which we don't know about.
Hold tight and see what the remainder of the week brings.

Slav is playing a clever strategy making Khan wait ,also he's exerting an influence on players who come in eventually!

No one more delighted than me I assure you.  Hopefully the quality here will act to persuade any more (signings) in the pipeline that the club has the necessary ambition.

Happy pills working .....!
