Will we actually sign anyone?

Of worth that will quantifiably strengthen the team. Just a thought 💭

We need about six players and no signs off by movement yet. CW normally does his business early.

Oh fuck off. Look at the total amount of signings so far and you’ll see not much business has been done.

Where do you get this ‘CW usually does his business early’ crap from? He tracked Leonard for over a year, Hogan for 6 months, Norwood came in well after the perminant transfer deadline.

Keep your hair on, we will sign who we want to sign.

A few journey men needing small fees and one or two we can get with small installments up front I suspect.

Last summer’s business:
– 18 June, Dean Henderson signed on loan
– 19 July, John Egan signed
– 24 July, David McGoldrick signed
– 13 August, Ollie Norwood signed

As a reminder, today is 15 June.

I blame rolling news and social media. These days everybody is constantly glued to SSN or Twitter or Facebook (and dare I say internet forums?) just waiting for news. Something- anything. Thats why stupid rumours like Ribery get blown out of all proportion; people are so desperate to get their fix of a new piece of “rolling news”, they’ll swallow more shit than a building site portaloo.

Lets just get a few things in perspective;
- The majority of players are still on holiday. The international ones have literally only just finished their season this last week. I believe the U21s still haven't. Now I’m not going down the “poor overworked footballer” line, BUT; they do have a small window out of the year to go away on holiday with family, friends or both. Its about the only time of year they can go on stag do’s and get married- look at Fleck. Point being, its highly likely that the majority of players we are looking at are either out of the country; about to go out of the country; or are back in their home towns having a few beers at Auntie Brenda and Uncle Keiths BBQ.

The clubs and agents will be talking. But how can medicals be done when the players aren't here?

Do we really want CW or anyone else blabbing about who we’re after just because a few people cant amuse themselves for a few weeks over the summer?

Or do we just trust him?

Barring a very small number, hardly anybody in the Premier League or Championship have signed anyone. If we’re in a crisis because we’ve not signed anyone, then theres about 35 other clubs in one as well.

Henderson will come back on loan. Probably sign Hogan too.

Rest will mainly be squad players I reckon. Can see the day one lineup looking very much like the one that finished the Ipswich game minus Madine.
