Who ever comes in, has a job on their hands, in my opinion its a total squad rebuild, which takes time.
How many of the current squad, would you keep?

May not be able to move some players, due to contracts.

IMHO the new manager needs to rid the club of all the dead wood (players), if possible and build a squad with a blend of experienced ,young eager and the best youth players on our books, please no more journeyman looking for their last payday.

The new manager needs to have a much smaller squad (quality rather than quantity) and build that unity that Hurst squad had.

No easy task ahead, as it will take time and that something managers are not given these days.

As always I will support the new manager and hopefully this time Fenty gets the right person in.

Pointless thread, trying to decide at the moment, decide at the end of the season.  The under-performers might find a new lease of life and we might want to keep them.

According to Cod Almighty's Play Contracts Section, the only players remaining under contract in the summer are:

Dixon
Rose
Kelly
Cardwell
Hooper

With the possible exception of Cardwell, I wouldn't want to keep any of these.

I'd offer Mills, McKeown and Dembele new contracts and replace the rest.

Same 3 as Bobby maybe Summerfield,  Cardwell as last backup in case he has real potential and of course Clifton etc. The rest getting too old and slow or are not good enough.

Feel like Summerfield has done enough to be rewarded at least a contract offer. But that is basically the only addition to Mills, McKeown and Dembele i'd make.

Not with me, hes never really had a run so we wont know till it happens but you never know he could be a real talent, Clifton is our saviour in midfield according to many, even though hes hardly been on the pitch, wont really know till they get a few games either.

If I had my way I would start next season with just McKeown, Mills, Summerfield and Dembele from this. Give then new man a free reign on the market effectively and sign players based on an identity and philosophy.


Thank you Paul Hurst, you only appreciate something when you don't have it anymore.
