    10 players of our own
    5 players on a season long loan to bolster the squad (not this 1,3 month shite)

    No short term loans, must be half season or full season only. Not sure where a Joe Cole loan would fit.

    oh yeah thats true. he seems to be confident of it though, maybe there is a work around

    permanent players will be key though, out of the 10 or so players needed hopefully 7 or 8 are permanent

    10 is a lot of new signings but I think you are right it is what we need. I expect some of our youngsters to go on loan to league 2 sides...at least for first half of season. Hopefully Venus and Mowbray already have their shortlist drawn up.

    15 Players?!? Don't talk nonsense.... Not in a million years will we sign (nor do we need) fifteen new players...

    2/3 defenders 2 Midfielders 2 Strikers... I can see the young players featuring more next season (Harries, Kelly-Evans x2, Thomas, Stevenson, maybe others if they train on)

    Please remind me how many players we signed over the course of last season including loans?

    they have now released 10 players of our own which are mostly first teamers plus, Bigi, Murphy, Maddison, Armstrong, Stephens not including Jones who has yet to sign.

    We need players in the door ASAP to get a pre season together.

    We must have been approaching 30 incoming transfers and loans over the season as a whole this year.

    That's my point. JackDG just don't agree with my opinion saying 15 players is nonsense

    The fact is we have released 10 players of our own with 5 loans, potentially 6 if you include Jones if he decides not to join or it falls through.

    So we are 16 players short to where we were originally on Sunday against Oldham. The kids we have on our books are not ready to play 15+ games this season.

    So I would like to stick by my 15 players required. (10 our own and 5 season long loans to bolster it out).

    From the SCG notes; Venus said - "Today, there are 9 players on first-team contracts. Football management report that the club will look to have a first team squad of about 25." So TM's going to need a few even after assuming the youngsters sign professional deals.

    Will be interesting how the new loan rules affect things (I wasn't aware of any changes). If it's no longer a case of an 'emergency' month to get a player fit and give them some games, but more 23/46 games, then one would hope that we'll be in a better position than others in the league.

    TM/Ricoh/style of play and clubs seeing how Armstrong developed should all be in our favour, but then again if you get a dud are you stuck with them...

    No emergency loans but could Cole be signed as a out of contract player. Wasnt that how we got Rammage in before the transfer window started?

    Players coming over from the states has been a fairly common thing in recent years. Reckon that will somehow be worked around in the new rules.

    As I understand it, he would return to UK during a break in the US season, so he would still be contracted to Tampa Bay Rowdies. Would he be allowed to sign a short term contract with us?
