Who would you buy in the summer? Providing we don't lose any of the contracted squad we currently have. From the loan players I would sign up John Marquis and Danny Rose, let Luke Prosser and James Collins leave. Then would look to sign a new centre back, maybe Tafazoli from Mansfield? He'd be a quality addition. I'd then sign another midfielder and striker.

I hope that we retain the services of Holmes, O Toole and Smith. This is the key to recruitment policy by adding quality to some very good players.
Contracts are of varying value dependant on the strength of the chairman as we've seen with undisclosed fees etc.

I'd like to see a mobile target man, centre mid and some quality dancing girls

Saw an article on the Chron website earlier today, Holmes has said he will be here next season, I reckon we will be able to keep John-Joe, the main worry is Adam Smith

IMO the key is to keep most of the first 11 together added with a few additions, even if we do lose the manager!

If he gets released now, he'll look a bit stupid.









Can't see that happening though.

As always money talks whether that be with a speculative transfer bid or the offer of a big increase in wages. Everyone has their price.

Here's hoping that's not the case and a good wage and a happy (Appeh) footballer means he'll stay.
Resist or at least get the right level of return.

He couldn't get released anyway, he has a year left on his contract  Wink

as ive said before, we need some extra pace throughout the team / squad.

if he can get them, a more mobile centre half, centre midfielder and a couple of pacy forwards.

i would let collins go for sure, and marquis if there is a better option out there.

other than that, keep the core of the squad together..............prosser, collins, corry, hackett and horwood all on their way..................and maybe clarke / cresswell if they want first team football.

From the article it sounds like he isn't actively seeking a move (although his agent probably is, or at least a pay rise) but if a big Championship club comes in for him I'm sure he will be off. I hope he will be here next season, as is the same with all our big players.

Targets for the summer is simple, someone who is better than we have or gives us options to play a different way!

On what basis?  We did okay with our current level of pace surely?

I think pace is definitely needed. This year we haven't really needed it because most teams have shown us an enormous amount of respect and sat quite deep leaving no space for pacey players. This season our attack has been mainly focused on using the creativity of players to unlock defences. I can think of several occasions this season where teams have come to Sixfields and camped with 10 men behind the ball to frustrate us. I anticipate that next year will be different. I envisage a lot more teams pushing up and pressing higher but ultimately leaving the space in behind. It will be vital that we have the pace to exploit this.
Combine that with the fact that players generally (not always) tend to be quicker the further up the leagues you go, added pace is a must.

dont know if you have noticed, but we have gone up a league.

we struggled against pace this season - we will struggle more next season.

as we are both in league one next season, i will use MK dons away as the example, where one of the stand out differences in the teams was the pace they had compared to us.

i would say its the only thing we havent got in our current squad, no one is blessed with pace - none of players can go past others and stay past them - best bet is holmes who beats someone, then jumps into them to win free kicks.

Thanks for that, I had absolutely no idea we'd be playing at a higher level next year.

I'd personally argue we need to be better rather than quicker but each to their own.

In ability there is little between them, pace is the main difference (aside from consistency) the higher up you go: speed of thought, actions and of foot .

Id like us to look at someone like Lyle Taylor if wimbledon fail to get promoted, the lad has bags of pace, strong and know where the goal is and would compliment the likes of Rico up top.

I think we should get rid of the entire squad and replace them all with better players.

I want pace, strength, resilience and quality in all areas of the park. Where we have pace, I want lightning. Where we have strength, I want steroid fuelled hunks of meat. Where we have resilience,I want more resilience. Where we already have quality, I want premier league.
