  1. I won't go into massive detail, but you've ignored several things. Population demographic, ability to and quality of testing, population density, reliability of data. There's so many variables. Listen to experts, not media or your own assumptions.
  2. I think your simple maths is quite seriously flawed for multiple reasons.
  3. Nottingham Forest's owner has Coronavirus. Could potentially have spent time with their squad. Could be major if he has.
  4. A good point - an oversight in my dealings for sure. Williams/Wright/Vyner/Watkins/Adelakun/Palmer/Szcmodics/Hinds - Off the wage bill at least. Vyner/Watkins/Adelakun/Hinds I don't see us getting any decent fees for at all. Palmer I don't imagine we would want to sell for a loss, and also don't see anyone buying him for what we paid, so that's why I figured a loan. Szmodics - I don't think anything was agreed with Peterborough? Could see them buying him for around what we paid, if not a little more. I think realistically, the ones who'd go for the sort of money we're talking are the two you suggest, or Massengo, who I really hope stays here for at least another year.
  5. For me: GK: Maenpaa gets a new deal - I think it's really tight between him and Bentley, but after Saturday I'm possibly saying Maenpaa shades it. Two solid options, plus Gilmartin. O'Leary and Wollacott on loans. RB: Keep Hunt, but obvious we need a signing here, and I would expect us to sign a first choice RB. I like Pereira, but given the cost and amount he's actually played this season I think it's pretty unlikely to be him, though I would not be disappointed if it was. LB: Dasilva first choice, Rowe fine as back-up, he did well there this season. If there's a league one side who is willing to give Pring game time, then a loan for him to see what he's got, otherwise sell. Wouldn't prioritise a signing in this position. CB: Kalas first choice, keep Baker and Moore, but I would expect a fourth option to be brought in. Vyner I don't see making it here, and would sell, Cundy I would apply the same logic as Pring above. No new deal for Williams or Wright, unless Williams was to be considered for coaching development. CM: Massengo, Nagy, Morrell, Walsh and Smith (extend) competing for places. I will do a separate category for AM options. Bakinson and Morton need more time on loans, Rowe I have included as back-up at LB, he could be an emergency in midfield too. Don't see us needing to sign in this position unless something mega became available - I really want Walsh to be playing regularly. Wings: O'Dowda, Eliasson - It's quite hard to judge what we need here as it depends what formation we are going to play. As we know Johnson likes to chop and change and I don't see why he would stop doing so (although I'd love us to have a settled shape). If we are going to play wingers, then we would need to sign another option, or two. If it's going to be an option off the bench or an occasional switch, we can probably cope with these two, and Paterson/Weimann used as other options. I would apply the Pring/Cundy logic to Holden and Smith, and sell Watkins and Adelakun. I'll go for one signing coming in, plus Cal & Nik. AM: Paterson, Palmer and Szmodics for most sides you'd say are enough options. However, Johnson's going nowhere, and I think it's fairly clear he doesn't fully trust any of these three players. For that reason I wouldn't be surprised to see any of all of these players sold, with another option (or two) brought in. most likely for me would be Paterson kept on with a new signing, Palmer (loaned) and Szmodics sold. FW: Wells, Weimann, Diedhiou, I would gamble on Afobe and be done there. Sell Hinds, loan Janneh and Semenyo. So that would be: GK (3), RB (2 (1 Signing)), LB (2), CB (4 (1 signing)), CM (5), Wings (3 (1 signing)), AM (2 (1 signing)), FW (4 (1 signing)). Squad of 25. I'm probably falling foul of home grown rules here somehow, but oh well.
  6. 1 - They're not 'real', they're nonsense in my opinion. Also, 'Market Value' of players isn't a particularly good measure of current ability within the squad - Age drives value, as do contractual differences (time remaining, wages etc.). 2 - The manager subject has been done to death - but the reality is probably that other clubs would be more interested in our manager than some of our players!
  7. There's something about Hampshire on this forum...
  8. Yeah, you're right. Also to be fair I do despise posts which are written in such as way as to address a particular person at the club who we know for sure won't read it, and wouldn't care even if they did!
  9. It is an open forum to be fair. If someone want to post like this then they should be allowed to - but they should expect the backlash that this particular post has received. We can't be censoring opinion (unless it is in extreme circumstances ofc).
  10. Not particularly good is an understatement tbh - He was really quite awful. However, agree with the principle.
  11. The decision has been made already, that is abundantly clear. Whether you're Johnson in or Johnson out, you must be sentient enough to realise the manager is not going to be changed before the end of the season, and even then I would imagine it is highly unlikely. Also it isn't must win, there's 33 points to play for after that. Use your head.
  12. Everyone was crying out for him in the team earlier in the season when he wasn't starting. He's not the problem. Today it was mistakes, and obviously we were up against a better team than us. Generally though, I think central midfield is the biggest problem.
