Ok, onwards and upwards and lets get on to the subject of new players joining the club.
After the near disaster of last season and the close season signings of players that were mostly lacking in desire or quality, I hope lessons have been learnt and that this time we will only purchase quality.
Regarding sales, don't want to get to involved with who should be moving on, I think we all know within one or two players who should be going? What I want to do, is to create a debate on players going who maybe we wouldn't want to see leaving!
The first is Karl Henry! If decent money was offered I would let him go to provide partial funds towards a new midfield enforcer, one with a bit more class/guile in going forwards.
The goalkeeper? Again if a good offer came in I would be tempted, of the three teams who went down, two of them have excellent proven abilities with the added bonus of premier experience.
Last but not least, the question of Matt Jarvis is one of the favourite subjects at the moment, I think he is an excellent player who still needs to improve in certain areas, the final pass/cross being the most obvious. An offer in excess of £10million would I think be good business for us and would enable us to buy two class centre backs, Johnstone and Dann would be ideal, both living and settled in the area, at the time of writing this blog Johnstone is a target according to reports but I would also like us to go for Dann who we missed out on to blues a while ago.
So basically I would swap Jarvis for two quality centre backs and be happy, even taking Foster as well!!, blues defence and our midfield/attack sounds a good plan.
How much money do we have available without selling? £5 million or so is surely earmarked for O'Hara so I think this close season we have to sell to partially fund our other targets.
Going back to Jarvis, the other factor is the amount of wide players we have at the club, the most exciting being the return of Kites, yes Jarvis is good but I do think we could live without him as long as the money is right.
One more for the debate? Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, I think could be another if the price is right, great in the championship but a true premiership quality striker?
I hope I have said enough to create some debate and opinions on this subject, again all those I have mentioned would only be going if good offers were made.
The list of players who should most certainly be going is another matter and one which I said most of us would agree on give or take a couple, Mouyokolo, Mancienne, Berra, Halford, David Jones, Edwards, Hahnemann and finally the Hoff!
Milijas is the one I cant decide on? Good touches here and there but if we could get our money back I'd be tempted?
Any thoughts on this subject?
So I think a week to go before the transfer window opens! How many new arrivals this summer I wonder?
Time will tell!
