Avoid ALL of them

Totally agree...

Let's all move on eh? None of them are good enough if we want to mount a serious promotion challenge.

Plenty of younger & better players out there...

No rush as we've the nucleus of a decent squad for L2 already.

Pierro Mingoia was ace last time we were in League 2. He has been let go from Cambridge (injuries played a part I believe). Very much in the Adams / D'ath mould.

Dean's shopping list needs to focus on 3 key areas:
1) Physical "enforcer" central midfielder/s. Other than O'Toole and possibly McWilliams, all of our central players are much too lightweight. We need someone who can put their foot in.
2) Width - pace out wide in the Nicky Adams mould.
3) Strikers - need a focal point striker in L2, someone with a bit of presence who will take defenders away and free up space for others.

We also need to offload a fair few players including Coddington, Turnbull, Kasim, Bowditch etc.

In his first season Lawson D'Ath was very good.

2 completely different things.

Personally I don't want to see a glut of signings, maybe two or three depending on who goes.

I would much prefer to see the likes of Whaler, Morgan, Iaciofano etc getting opportunities at L2 level.

If we don't get rid of too many, we shouldn't have the need for masses of new signings.

you might want to wait and see how many leave the club first - i think there will be at least 8 moved on - either by their choice or the clubs.

Totally agree, that is why I put depending on who goes.

I don't think we need to shift as many as that, which eight would you be moving on or you think that some will leave (relegation clauses)?

I think of these were to leave, it'd hardly be a shock: Coddington, O'Donnell, Bunney, Turnbull, Kasim, Bowditch, Van Veen, Waters. Maybe Foley? He left Port Vale saying he didn't want to play League Two from memory.

I think it's inevitable turnover will be high and I'd be quite happy to see the majority leave if I'm honest. Let's not for get our defensive record was the worst in tge league and we struggled to create and score goals. Yes there will be a drop in quality in lg2 and we will need to play a certain type of football to do well. IMHO the majority of this lot that may well stay (4 or 5 aside) will struggle in lg2 (hoskins, Foley etc)

Anthony Wordsworth. Released by Southend. Left footed central midfielder who can take decent set-pieces. Played most his football at L1 but DA is familiar with him having been at Southend.

Hoskins and Foley will struggle in L2?

True, but surely some of them might think they have a better chance of starting in a lower league with a different manager (Bowditch/Waters for example?)

Agree that Coddington should exit if it can be arranged, but we have three keepers if he goes so that doesn't warrant a signing.

Kasim is an odd one, maybe he'll come good in L2? Smiley Turnbull and Van Veen may be obvious, think Foley would struggle to get into another L1 club after being relegated two season in a row? Would be happy to keep him anyway.

Would be upset if we cannot keep hold of R'OD, but if the Cornell signing indicates he is then we still have three keepers (Cornell, Coddington, Goff).

For me its simple really, no more square pegs in round holes,

We have a good squad, arguable even enough fire power to compete and push for promotion in League 2.

If we are signing players lets make sure they have the right mentality first and suit the system, just because they scored 20 plus for one team don't mean they work for us.

Even the players we have now if they don't fit into the work ethic or ethos then get rid, can't afford for hangers on whoever they are.

Harping back to Wilder days, he just signed good pros who wanted to work hard for the team and when they didn't perform he got rid or froze out until they proved themselves again, Austin seems of a similar mould and wont take any rubbish.

this was part of the key to CW's success - he got the balance of the team right rather than trying to squeeze players in to position / system they didnt suit.

'Enough fire power'!!!???

Can you name ONE single striker we have who you think will get 15 or more goals next season.

I think we need a minimum of THREE new strikers.
