The Reality
30 May 2015 14:02 Post ID: #459336
With Ashley's 'lies' still fresh in the mind, those amongst us who feel that there was a line drawn in the sand over the running over the club, need to look at the reality of the situation.

Here we had a bloke who used a phrase 'from now on' as if to insinuate that the past has gone and a new bright future was upon us, when the reality for him is that it isn't as easy as that.

As things stand, we need to sell to buy.

Not because there's any debt or need to create a transfer kitty but because the squad is full, believe it or not, and there'll be players getting money for nowt basically. Which Ashley wont have thought about.

We say we need between 6 and 10 new players to advance as a club but to do so, we need to be shipping out more than that and as things stand in the eyes of the football laws, we're top heavy.

We're allowed to name a 25 man squad (of over 21's) but as it stands and with Jonas and Ryan Taylor being shown the door, we will have 28.

Ive shown 11 players in bold as to who I think is either going or is most likely to but even if im right, that only leaves the possibility of 7 players incoming.

It may be enough but even then, the cost for decent replacements will be North of £70 million and I just can't see that happening, even if my predicted exits raise £25 - £30 million.

6 to 10?! We need a bare minimum of 15 10million pound players.

With 19 players needed to leave for that to be able to happen, it wont, although agents would be rubbing their hands together.

I don't know of any half decent side that buys players before they get a manager in and I just don't see how we could get anywhere near 25million for those players mentioned.

I really don't think there are any top players at the club but under a good manager and good owner we would need a few transfer windows where we clear the dregs out and bring in good players with a good attitude.

This.

We could easily get rid of 19 players too.

I think that was what I was getting at when creating this thread as the reality being that it wont happen.

Reality is a word that does not exist in Ashley and Charnleys world.
Bullshit does exist.
