We have the bones of a promotion chasing side:

Macc
Hendrie Ohman Davis Ring
Clifton Whitehouse Hessenthaler
Vernam Cook Wright

There is a back to bones XI that will get better with a good pre season, plus additions in for the forwards

Yes, this does not set some people's hearts racing but the overall age of that 11 is 24. Take into account the bench of next years players and that'll not alter things either.

We are getting there - just think the last manager got rid of Shaun Pearson and replaced him with Nathan Clarke... the only way is up

Quoted from SomeSanity
Scunthrope will have the best budget in the league next season. They have a majority shareholder willing to invest, a commercial dept that is effective.. so more money, better run club, although it does pain me to say that.


Just sh*t players and no manager.

Our budget is 200k less than it should be and will be for the next 9 years unless changes at the top happen. Any manager we bring in is going to be severely hamstrung in all that time.

Which means they'll mostly all go through the wars with regular calls for their heads.

Unless a miracle worker.

Is that our five year plan, hope to stumble across footballing fortune?

On that note I'd love to see Shut Up's detailed plan for us to be in the Championship in five, four three years...

Much as I'm not a Stephen Marley fan, it was Mr Day that had us promoted to the Championship in 5 years during one of Mr Fenty's media 'sabbaticals'.

Given that MJ has brought much-needed youth to the squad, he deserves the opportunity to build a squad in the next window and develop its' style of play. Let's hope that the budget has been boosted by some saved wages, FA Cup money and the Humberston Avenue money tree!

Quoted from diehardmariner
In his second summer he made some key signings (Paul Bolland, Gary Jones, Steve Mildenhall) and gelled them with the core he had brought in the previous summer (Michael Reddy, Rob Jones, Justin Whittle).  Ultimately it didn't work out quite as hoped but the improvement from one season to another was incredible.


In his first season I remember thinking that Rob Jones was one of the most inept defenders I'd ever seen at BP...

Quoted from Yoda
We have to give MJ the start of next season say 15 games.

But if this bad run continues into next season he will be gone.



Right I think you are.

Hall-Johnson instead of Ring for me and let's not expect too much of Whitehouse, he hasn't kicked a ball for us yet but otherwise it looks promising



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Okey dokey, looks okay apart from:
1- where are the goals coming from?
2- Ring, needs to improve massively otherwise it's RHJ or Pollock in there imo
3- Macca needs to work on commanding his box better and improve distribution/ball release..
All in all not an awful looking line up but not a promotion chasing one, certainly not in league 2...
Think we've seen this season that you need height, strength and bullish behaviour to succeed...which I don't see enough of in 90% of your proposed line up...

There’s 4 or 5 in your team that wouldn’t be good enough for a team challenging for promotion.
