I suspect it is connected to the off-field stuff, we've usually signed a fair few by now.

I guess the lack of signings is also connected to the squad being high in number but as I said I would have thought a couple might have left by now.

I know we have the World Cup to break up the summer. But seriously I don't think I can stand a summer without the transfer rumours thread. Who doesn't enjoy all the speculation/half truths/total bollocks of it all?

Going by the first signing of the summer we might need to restrict our searches/speculation to players over 30, out of contract with a recent history of injury.

Well paying money for players in January didn't exactly work did it.. Personally speaking I think the first signing of the summer is pretty decent one

I get the feeling it's a case of shipping players out first before we see anyone coming in. Quite nice that there's no massive clear out and hopefully it means Dean keeps together a group that trusts and respects him. Nothing wrong with that.

My thoughts exactly. One or two changes to try and strengthen in key areas is all we need.

I got the impression from Ashton Taylor that him and the squad were of the same mindset, we went down together and we'll put it right to get back up again together.
Obviously any additional players to improve the squad would also be of benefit.

Got to be strong fancies for Auto promotion if we can keep the squad together. Big if however.

That's a good attitude to start with and Taylor himself saying that is a real positive.

Now it appears that KT has got what he wanted he may be able to spend some council of his money on better quality

Iíve always maintained adequate players and excellent team spirit get you promoted at this level - manager and player speak so far makes me cautiously optimistic.

Not sure if that equates to the Championship winning side; let alone the then incumbent Manager/Assistant Manager.

Aside from CW/AK and Holmes, I can't think of many who were much better than 'adequate' in terms of individual skill. A quick look at where they are now doesn't suggest so, anyway.

There must have been at least 4 or 5 players in that team who showed the form of their lives for that one season, which could easily be down to the excellent team spirit.

Bang on, Wilder had the likes of Byrom and McDonald really well and they weren't really world beaters

Adams, Díath, Smith, both full backs and the player who went to Pompey looked above Div 2 standard. Of course you have forgotten JJOT!

Please clarify. I can never bring myself to agree with any of CW Ďarguments Ď. Unless of course you and CW r joined at the hip.

They looked above Div 2 standard, but it's tough to argue that any of the players you list have proven that to be the case since. A borderline case in JJOT maybe.

The point being that they performed to the absolute best of their abilities as individuals (for a short portion of their careers) and the team was better than the sum of its parts. This could have been at least partly down to a strong team spirit.
