Like many, not fussed if he goes should we get decent money. Very hit and miss. And likely to be on good wages.

£1m is low though. And we don't have a lot of alternatives. Barrett and Olise not ideal.

A few weeks ago it was rumoured he wouldn't be going for less that 2.5m, so either that was wrong or this one is. If the price has dropped, would suggest no takers at that higher price and the bonus of releasing his wages is higher than expected.

I bet Barrow’s stats were much poorer during the time Clement was in charge which is hardly surprising given Clement had offloaded him previously.
Overall he has been comfortably one of our better signings over the past two years and was doing well once he started playing under Gomes.
Would much rather he stays and we offload Popa and GMac although appreciate suitors may be scarce.

The only thing that worries me is that his mate, Meite, will follow suit and force a transfer.

With Harriott gone and Popa looking set to go too - that would leave GMac, Olise, Barrett. Hardly inspiring options to cover our wide positions :|

What a mess

Yep it is a concern. If Barrow goes we cannot afford to lose Meite.

It wasn't so long ago that everyone was saying we had too many wingers and we needed to let some go :?

We did. Since then Sims and Harriott have gone. Popa is on his way out. Aluko is out on loan. Barrow may be going.

As it stands nothing concerns me more than the keeper situation. while Walker is perfectly adequate has a bench warmer he`s got nothing about him yet that I`ve seen so far to pull off the saves we`ve been accustomed to over the last few seasons.

Exactly. 1 crisis at a time.

It's much easier to relax and see what the squad looks like on August 9th - then you can panic.

Is there any chance that someone wouldn't mind just reminding me exactly what our first team professional-terms squad is ?

With Ward gone, assuming Barrow leaves, and taking into account those that have been released, plus NOT including any of the loanees we relied on last season.

What exactly is our current squad today ? taking in account that pre-season training starts in 6 days time !

Thank you.

These are the only players that I’d be not completely dissatisfied with starting out of what we’ve got, and that includes players like Swift and Gunter who I don’t want here. We’re in for another long season by the looks of it.

Geez, that squad looks bad when displayed like that. How did we manage to spend so much money and have the squad look so poor?

... nevermind, I know the answer.

It just makes talk of selling Moore, Meite and Barrow even more ridiculous at the moment. Let's just hope and pray that squad will be looking slightly healthier before the start of the season.

Much appreciated Hound.

Wow....exclude the youngsters (and those with 10 appearances or less), and that looks like a squad that might struggle in a competitive championship.

We shall see.

There's a reasonable amount to work with imo, if we can bring in a keeper, CB and CM. Would hope we could find 3 prem loans to do that - plenty around and hopefully built up some good will from last year with Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal

Would add McIntyre, Kelly, Baldock, Bod and McNulty to that

I'd take Kelly back out again and put in McCleary
