Mine are well done Simon, we wanted a fresh start and clear out and what we have with next to no outlay is fantastic.

Happy with all of them, but would still like a few more!

Keeper, would be happy with Ruiter

Centre back Elphick

Another forward please

And that assumes, Kone, Lens and Khazri stay, if any of them go we will need to replace them

Djilobodji and Rodwell can go for me

The clear out - well, there's  a couple I would have liked to have stayed and a couple I would like to have gone. I hope the ones I would have liked gone  don't drag the new ones down. Comfortable with us buying cheap and most seem to have a point to prove (so did Rodwell mind). I actually think the goalie situation looks ok now despite not doing the obvious - spend just a third of the Pickford money and we'd get the  best goalie in the Championship. Actually, no - spend a  lot less, I can't think of a decent one. We should be ok there. Defenders coming in should be ok - anybody who keeps bodge job out of  the side  gets my vote. If the wingers and forwards gel we could turn out to have a decent side. If only we could keep Lens and he  plays as well as he has pre-season. Unlikely. Same goes for Khazri and fingers crossed no one comes  in for Ndong. A couple more in would be good but to be honest I'll be  glad when the window shuts. All in all I'm looking forward to the new season but hope we set the right tone  in the  first 4 or 5 games. If we have  our usual poor start then i'm not sure either i, nor the players will cope with what's to come. Admire grayson so far, let's hope it works out.

A mixed team of reasonably experienced or promising Premier players beefed up by Championship players signed up by a manager who has achieved promotions with previous clubs proving he is a builder of teams will do me for now.  

Everybody needs time to weld together so my expectations for this season are that I am willing to be pleasantly surprised if we have some sort of achievement.

Had low expectations which have largely been met! I am hopeful of a solid season and Grayson continues to impress me. But it is still pre-seasonand I will reassess as the league games start and we see how this squad develops into a team. But so far quietly confident of a good season, and maybe the play offs. Smile

were skint its what i expected. Spending big does not always work, ask Villa. It is what it is at least the club is getting the books in order and we wont do a Portsmouth. We will be back but it may take some time. If any set of fans are used to this its us right?

Agreed, bid spending can't work for everyone,
If every team in the Fizzy pop each spent £60m, then three teams would still be relegated despite a combined outlay of £180m !

But the other side of the coin is that zero or minuscule investment also comes at a price...

Tomas Kalas: Fulham sign Chelsea defender on loan

[size=11]Tomas Kalas featured in 36 league games for Fulham last season to help them reach the play-offs

Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas has signed a new four-year deal with the Premier League club and rejoined Championship side Fulham on a season-long loan deal.
Kalas made 40 appearances on loan at Craven Cottage last season.
The 24-year-old, capped seven times by the Czech Republic, has featured only four times for Chelsea since signing from Sigma Olomouc in July 2010.
"We appreciate Tomas so much after the way that he battled for us last season," [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Maybe this gives an indication of what we are up against in the transfer market. A player in his prime that Chelsea do not particularly need looking at his appearance record but he is available to recall in emergency.  No incentive for an international to leave a super-club wage packet partly paid by us lesser lights. He is among thirty or so Chelsea players out on loan at the moment.
I can only see it getting worse as finances change.[/size]

All very mediocre signings that will have us mid table at best. When khazri, Kone and Lens leave thete will be no quality left at the club.

larry seems like a proper manager ,getting on with the job not like that moaning miserable sod moyes,god he was so depressing no wonder they didn't want to play for him, back to the incoming players they seem very down to earth and realistic chaps but I don't think we will be able to keep lens and kone I'm not sure I want them to either but I would love khasri to hang around also we need a very good centre half and then we will be alright until January.

Yes, that's what he asked for. The club’s no where near finished falling yet in my opinion. Something has to be done to force yankee doodle dandy out to stop that.

I would prefer,indeed I am supporting the new manager and new start and I do it with my usual positive head. RR you have said a few times I am deluded but one fan staying away from the SoL and thinking it will affect Short is true delusion.

You say something has to be done to shift Short, go on please tell me what?

Manager has done welĺ to persuade the new arrivals to come north.

Hard work will not be enough.

My hope is for the swan dive to be halted.
If we are comfortable by Christmas perhaps purse strings may be loosened a bit to bring in some proven fizzy pop quality.

Who knows, Santa may even bring us a new owner by then.
