Better get used to it - Austin is obviously a big fan.
I notice Nathan Thomas has been released by Sheffield Utd - hed be a cracking signing but will be in high demand. I agree with the poster who said about Clayton Donaldson - hed be the ideal kind of target man striker we could do with.

From what Austin said in his interview, it would seem that movement of players in may be less than more.

Seems to indicate he likes a compact squad and that last two windows were too busy.

A bit worrying bearing in mind weve got kasim and bowditch amongst several others who are clearly surplus to requirements - its very noble to think that they could be coached into being productive squad members but I dont think fergie in his pomp would have been able to get a tune out of them.

Confident we'll do ok in League 2. It's the almost complete inability to cope in League 1 which is a bigger concern and one that no chairman has got to grips with (give or take a few years) over a century +.

if Austin plays Hoskins as his main striker than we are in a world of sh!t.

I think he will be a player that comes off the bench to run and alot. its a shame VV doesn't share the same work ethic.

The fact that he has requested a transfer is the only fact u require,  so u are quite correct.

There are quite a few things not out in the press that have/ are / will happen.

For example why Facey was dropped from the squad being an example.

So are you implying Facey is on his bike, too?

Im not necessarily disagreeing with you - just stating that DA (not JE!) obviously rates him. As many have said before Hoskins has great work rate and decent pace but absolutely no strikers instinct - we need at least 2 if not 3 good additions up top.

Its interesting that DA is quoted as saying he is expecting strategic rather than wholesale changes, this flies in the face of people on here suggesting that Taylor, facey and ODonnell amongst others are going to leave - if this is going to be the case then were going to need more than strategic changes if were going to compete. If we were to start next season with Cornell, moloney, buchs, Barnett and Pierre as the back 5 well be lucky to finish mid table.

There are a number of players that have openly said they will not play at league 2 level .
Whether or not these players get moved depends on contract clauses and if they can get the same money elsewhere . We might also have to recover transfer fees into six figures .
Austin will not want those players around though - look at how Long and Van Veen were treated at the end of the season . Theres a reason for that .
Unfortunately some of the committed ones are the ones you dont want to keep .
The defence worries me greatly , especially if someone comes in for Ash .

Been thinking about this for a few days and reading other posts, I think we need to accept that we will not see a huge influx of players this summer. I suspect that a major factor in DA being given the job full time was that he believes the current squad is strong enough to get us out of league 2 and he is prepared to use youth players throughout the season.

Therefore I would expect (my opinion) to see O'Donnell leave, I think that cornell is sufficient back up and coddington/goff will be given to opportunity to become number 1 (promoting youth).

Kasim and Bowditch will leave as they are surplus to requirements.

If Facey leaves I would expect Moloney to be first choice and then possibly Mcwilliams jnr given a chance during pre-season to prove he merits a place in the first team squad.

I would like Van Veen to stay, I know he's looked useless but league 2 with Hoskins or Waters doing the running up top supporting I think he could score a lot of goals next season. However it would not surprise me to see him leave.

Finally, I would let Foley leave, whilst I think he is a good player I think we and specifically Mcwilliams would benefit from having a more experienced midfield general to learn from and to bring on and boss the midfiled when required.

It's all about opinions but I've got major reservations over moloney - I just think the injuries have taken their toll and he's not half the player he was. In fact we've possibly got issues at both fullbacks as buchs' has lost a yard of pace and has started to get exposed at the far post in the air. I'm just praying that we somehow keep hold of Taylor, jjot and crooks - I think those 3 would give us the basis of a very strong team for league 2. I would also keep hold of foley who is massively underrated and was under-utilised last season - a very good squad player and versatile. Without wanting to sound like a broken record it is up front and in the wide attacking positions that we need proven, experienced quality and these don't grow on trees.

I agree .
Moloney is far too injury prone and is not the player he was .
Buchs is a back up player and is neither quick enough or good enough going forward .
Its time for a change Im afraid to say
