I wondered when we would start turning our attention the team. Thankfully Brexit and the Euros have deflected the gaze away from inevitable under achievement. That said we have had one ironic Jimmy out thread. Fill yer boots the engine has started and don't drop your crystal ball.

Ah great, the annual premature panic. The clue is in your own title - five weeks away.

I wonder if we have been holding out on a couple of targets based on waiting to see what money Fer and Phillips would bring in - or it could just as easily be the case that we do not work like that and Lee Hoos looks at the books and then takes a gamble on what is the low end estimate of what we could get in and then told Les to work with JFH on that figure.

I like the fact that JFH has strengthened the Left Back and Centre Back department early doors and brought a proper left back in and it would seem a left footed centre back. Will be interesting to see if the right back berth is to be filled by either Ned or Darnell or whether we are still hunting for an experienced right back. Surely if we can see that Ned is not a full back then JFH can - but maybe that is the compromise on the funds available, make do with Ned and a youngster and strengthen elsewhere.

Will Washington come back from the Euros with added belief and hit the ground running this term and play off Polter, so many ifs up front, but the business done to date looks sound thus far.

First priority: The defence. Done before we've even had our first pre-season
2nd priority: Make funds available by moving on players that are draining resources - part way there with 2 players sold for good fees.

I don't think it's any coincidence that we're in for Cousins and Leckie a day or 2 after officially moving on Phillips and Fer. Last season we expected to sell loads of 'top' players and none went, this time we are waiting to definitely shift them before knowing we have the money and space to get replacements. It makes perfect sense if you're not a dramatic troll.

JET and Washington have the makings of a really great partnership in the Championship; big strong target man with a good shot playing alongside a fast, skillful, likes to run with the ball type -- that seems like a really good combination. If the two of them can get some decent time to build up some understanding, I see no reason why that should be a very solid partnership, especially if we can find some genuine speed on the outside.

We generally play one up front under JFH and Polter plays that role pretty well. Then we have Washington as a alternative/partner for Polter if we change tactics.

Then we have a backup of Reece Grego-Cox who played and got the assist in the friendly the other day. And also JET if he can be bothered/change JFH's mind about him.

True we'd never make it through a Championship season with just those 4 without being in real trouble, but we'd be fine if we played Leeds at the weekend.

As others have said, we're building from the back.

Goalkeepers: sorted ✔️

Defenders: sorted ✔️

Midfielders: we could do with 2 or 3. Judging by the reports, we're looking at a few. ✔️

Strikers: depending how we're going to play. If JET is part of JFHs plans, we need maybe 1 more in. ✔️

Remember, we've got the loan market too.

If we sign Leckie we will have some serious pace up front for fast counter attacks along with DC.

Goalkeepers and defence sorted.
Midfielders/wingers who can score goals. One already signed and others being targeted.
Alot of pressure on our strikers last season due to a chronic lack of goals from our midfield - it will be better this season.
Don't panic!

Wish I could be like David Watts

Certainly looking pretty strong at goalkeeper and defence, although I would still like to improve at right back. Still think Perch was a poor buy. Defensive midfield will be okay if the Polish lad is better than Henry. Lack width and pace in midfield and that all round box to box player. Need a striker who is better quality than the two we have now. JET needs to go and I can't believe Gregor - Cox is still at the club !!

As others have said, the targets we are looking at suggest we are building towards the required squad

GK - Ingram, Smithies, Lumley

RB - Furlong Perch
LB - Bidwell, Robinson
CB - Lynch, Chief, Hall, Caulker?

CM - Henry, Luongo, Borysiuk, Doughty, Cousins?

Wingers - Mackie, Petrasso, Leckie?, Ngbakoto?

10's - Gladwin, Cherry, El Khayati

ST - Polter, Washington, Guirassey?, JET?

If they achieve what they want and get Leckie, Cousins, Guirassey and Ngbakoto done then the squad is there.

Don't think the French 2 will come off though and that will expose a lack of wingers for sure

Just a couple of points - really think we need a good right back, someone who can get up and down the line and deliver a good cross. I am not sure Caulker will be with us for much longer - that is fine with me but we do need to sort out the wider midfield players along with the striker options.

Still have time so no panic but always best to get business done early and hit the start of the season with a settled squad.

That selection of centre mids would leave me pretty concerned, with the wingers and strikers not much better off.

But it's early days and we also can't expect to solve all our problems in one window on a tight budget - it's just not feasible.

I'd expect a few loanees to fill the gaps too.

For the last couple weeks we've literally either bought, sold or been credibly linked with players near enough every single day.

I'm sure this scintillating rocket of a thread from internet message board user Honkytonks will ensure the club pull their finger out though.

Caulker says on offy, he is staying.

I know that usually means "......................until I get a better offer",

but looks like he may be here for longer than we thought

although it would be refreshing if a player said in the interview 'Of course i'm not staying, f*ck that for a game of soldiers!'

Can we not knock it?

Even not very bright footballers realise that as they are still employed and getting paid by the club AND they MIGHT have to actually play again for them, it makes no sense to say you want to leave.

The few that do ignore that and end up staying usually get a lot of grief - Berahino being the most reecnt high profile example of course
