Looks like we’ve had a complete rethink about the whole approach, which is good.
For our current status we can’t buy proven top level players so attempts at big spending are going to be on lesser players, which immediately lessens value for money/ potential growth.
We need to find our niche in the market again, which should be sensible acquisitions who can grow but with the option, should a big buy be right, to go large if we want.
It won’t be easy, as Brands says, to get shut of some of these players if who are on £100k in one window but if we loan two out and only pay half their wages we’d be effectively selling one/ plus getting a loan fee.
So if 6 (or equivalent) go we might get 3 players in who improve the team/ match day squad.
But this is where patience will be needed.
If we sell Williams and Mori I’d only imagine getting 1 CB in.
We might think that Robinson supporting Baines is a sensible (plus cheap) option in light of the above for this season.
