    Can Rob Edwards talk them into another season??

    Posted by whhatter on 17/5/2024, 15:47:51

    I know there has been so much talk about Barkley etc going, but do you think there is any chance that Rob Edwards could maybe convince them to give it another season?

    Would be nice to think so.

      Highly doubt it...

      At end of day we were low payers before the season started. Now the likes of Barkley, Osho, Doughty, Adebayo, Mengi are going to be offered at least double their current wages, if not treble or even more...

      What would you do?

          It's been fairly widely rumoured that he's on about 」2m a year with us. That's about 」37k a week which sounds an incredible amount. Not sure how accurate that is though as I was surprised when I read it and certainly can't vouch for the authenticity of it.

            Those Internet rumours are great.
            Chatter is a poor man's Cuba.
            Often posts like he knows stuff, never backs it up.

            Barkley is on around 32k a week, give or take bonuses.

            Highest paid player in our history.

            3 year contract.

            No idea on relegation clauses though.

        I think you are grossly underestimating what the club were able to pay the players this season and are able to next season.

          Do you think there will be a lot of player sales this summer? I知 not sure I understand the negativity on here; I.e talk of avoiding relegation or mid table finishes. Surely if we keep most of the key players and add 5 or 6 of good quality, then we should be in the mix?!

          Some are assuming a fire sale?! I don稚 see it that way.

          Have you heard anything regarding expected activity?

            It's just the relentlessly miserable brigade wanting to bring everyone else down with them

            I like a moan now and then but to be like that all the while must be really shit. Fuck's sake the football is supposed to be fun

              Agreed completely. They must be depressing to be around in real life.

              I知 going into the new season full of optimism about what we can achieve. We値l be in our strongest financial position to compete, and I知 sure we値l be able to attract some good quality to the group.

              RE said in his presser today, that he believes we will be in a really strong position to compete next year, and will be 双ne of the strongest budget wise in the league. If anyone had told me this would be the situation, ten years ago, I would have laughed at them.

              Onwards and upwards, as far as I知 concerned (until proven otherwise).

                He also said he thought we would finish January stronger.

                He doesn稚 have the final say.

                I note we have floated numbers round for the Academy upgrades, strange to throw numbers out there as it痴 usually undisclosed.

                Suspect any early player sales will be apportioned to this investment.

                It痴 money worth spending absolutely but let痴 not mix the two this summer.

                    This is true; although the club weren稚 willing to pay the inflated prices for players we weren稚 convinced about (to make an immediate impact) in the January market.

                    We have consistently been aggressive in the summer windows and defensive in January, so I expect that trend to continue. A lot of the players on our radar will be proven championship quality and potentially some top end league 1, I.e Harrison Burrows?

                    I致e not seen different numbers floated about for the academy upgrades? Not sure on the cost of the Dome, but GS has said they will be investing 3 million immediately into the academy structure (unsure if Dome is included in this).

                    Ultimately, I expect us to give it a good go to be in the mix. Let痴 see how the squads looking come September.

                      Burrows would be an excellent signing.

                      And yes I have seen him play more than three times and not on TV.

                        I don稚 subscribe to the bollocks spouted on here by some, that you need to have watched a player several times to consider your opinion worthy.

                        Particularly in todays world, whereby stats and data are heavily utilised in most recruitment models, including ours.

                        I suspect he痴 very much on our radar and is within our reach, considering Peterborough stayed down.

                    +1

                    It is difficult to tell at this stage of course because the squad still needs to be shaped but I'm expecting us to challenge even if I'm not banking on promotion

                      We値l certainly have a much clearer idea by the 1st September. But all the noises from RE and GS since last week, have been positive and not suggesting a significant stripping of our assets. Naturally, we値l lose 2-3, but I don稚 envisage us losing 5+ key players.

                      The key difference between us and other clubs that have slid down the leagues previously, is that we didn稚 gamble our future on staying up, so we don稚 need to sell en mass. Secondly, we池e not going down under a toxic cloud, in fact (trolls aside), the feeling is a positive one, and hopefully we can use that as momentum for next season.

                      I think a top 6 finish is realistic.

                        We need to lose at least 15 players

                        I would keep (if not sold):

                        Kaminski
                        Walton
                        Ted
                        Bell
                        Doughty
                        Mads
                        Holmes
                        Hashi
                        Barkley
                        Chong
                        Clark
                        Morris
                        Eli
                        Brown
                        Taylor
                        McAtee
                        Berry

                            He hasn稚 played in so long, I壇 overlooked him to. Hopefully we can get him back fully fit, as he値l be pivotal for us in trying to come back up.

                            Agree largely, however I壇 look to keep Osho, Pelly and Johnson.

                            People forget that Pelly was largely excellent for us last year and proved himself a good champ player. He wouldn稚 get in my strongest 11, but he痴 be a solid squad option, similar to Berry.

                            Osho I知 not 100% sure on because his injury record has been poor, and I suspect he壇 be expecting to be a high earner. If his wage expectations were reasonable, I壇 offer him a new deal.

                              Sorry deliberately missed Johnson and any of the Development players.

                              JJ will have a major role to play next season.

                                Reason I included JJ was because I think he値l be part of the first team fabric next season. Hopefully we致e got another gem on our hands.

                yeah I agree but I am not 100% sure all of them are going to get PL gigs - Osho and Doughty for me are not nailed on PL quality - Barkley Ade, Mengi probably but apart from them 3 not sure who else?
