I totally agree runcorn, or Danson goes chequebook barmy which is not going to happen.
The problem we have is building a squad. Maloney needs to sign players not just loans and short contracts and as we all know that comes at a price, players don’t do zero hours.

He has to sign so their here for at least 2 years or how can he build if every year 12-14 players are moving on ?

Maloney has to find players, cheap and decent but there’s so many other clubs after the exact same thing

We certainly don’t want over the hill players carrying a full to the brim medical journal and their last big pay day like we currently have now.

Maloney’s budget will not be signing on fee money it will be wages which inturn makes his job very very difficult finding the right player/s.

Were gonna need an awful lot of luck in the transfer market. I also think we should to tap into other areas and dip our toe into non-league and say the Irish League and make calculated gambles on up and coming young players.

I know one thing, I wouldn’t like Maloney’s job and the pressure that will come with it in June
Good luck to the guy he’ll need it

Very good points you raise CupWinners. But in all honesty, I very much doubt Maloney needs luck in the transfer market (well perhaps a teeny weeny bit as all managers do), but when you look at who he brought in this season on frees alone – M. Smith, J. Smith, Sessegnon to name but 3, plus Chambers, Godo to name but 2 on loans, I think he’s done a decent job IMO.

I think we will keep Magennis (God forbid I know) & McManaman – the latter who definitely deserves a 1 year extension. But I do truly believe we’ll be looking at players within the right age bracket. Players who have been released from Premier league/Championship clubs – again to use M.Smith as an example. And as you say, up & coming players from non league, L2 & even some gems from L1.

Add in keeping the likes of Jones, Kerr, Tickle, Hughes (fingers crossed) & I’d like to keep Humphrys also, we should more than likely be in a good spot for a definite top 10 finish. Maybe play off contenders.
