Okay, so the season is over, not going up, not going down.

So who is good enough to be part of a team challenging for promotion?

Not as many as we thought, but we haven't got the budget. Without the budget any managers hands are tied. MJ will give it his best shot of course, but we need real quality in the areas that matter.  

A new board with new money is more important.

As LCL says, we are only as good as our budget allows us to be.

Looking back on recent home games, I would say Macca, Hess and Hendrie are the only consistent 7 out of 10 performers who are likely to be here next season. I like Vernam but he doesn't seem to have a role in the manager's system and I think it's a bit unfair to be too judgmental about the Swedish lads.

I think we're probably three or four decent players off a play-off team at present. At this level, it doesn't take too much you get you competing for the top 7 and we don't need too much of a turnover of players this summer.

I think we have the basis of a decent defence and midfield so just a couple of tweaks in those areas could make a difference, especially with Whitehouse to hopefully be back and fit next season. It's up front which is my main concern as the players we have contracted for next season don't have much of a scoring record and also lack experience. I don't think Thomas will stay, though he's done a decent job this season.

Question is, can some of the youngsters in the squad develop into their roles or will they only be good enough as bit-part players?

Think we're already set at GK, RB and central defence (if MJ wants to extend Whitmore's contract, if not a left footer to replace DC) but improvements in pace, physicality, composure and creativity will be needed in every other area, (wide areas x2, CM x2, forwards x2). Probably won't have the budget to buy all the attributes required in, so MJ will have to knit together a team that's more consistent instead. The big question will be.. in his second season, after three transfer windows and two pre-seasons, does our manager have the ability to turn a (hopefully) mid-table budget into a play-off chasing side like other managers at other clubs have done in the past?

I don't buy this as good as your budget thing. Many teams have been successful on lower   budgets. It's about creating a team with what you have. Don't forget we regularly need 10+ players in the summer. That is our Achilles heel and until that lowers consistently our success will be limited.

I guess it all depends on what happens when we get to 50 points doesn't it?

If playing and transfer budget is dramatically increased then i think a few more will be going

Accrington Stanley went up on one of the lowest budgets in our league,

All you need is the right manager and the players who are able to follow the managers instructions,

BUT

More money helps
