Mixed bag of who we would want. No one seems that important to me with new owners coming in. of those out of contract that i'd really like to keep is Mellor.

Sign Lumley and Viv.

Take the option up on Williams and have him as third choice player/coach.

Sign Mellor and take the options up on Robertson and Aimson.

Take the option up on Sessi and give Spearing one year deal.

Give Vass and Cullen new deals. Take option up on Philliskirk. Give Gnanduillet new deal.

Release Taylor, McAlister, Daniel, Menga, Fonz, Correira, Matt, Boney, Richards, Sims, Williams. Find someone to take on Clayton's contract.

Leaves you with starting point of:

Lumley, Mafoumbi, Williams

Mellor, Turton, Anderton, Tilt, Robertson, Aimson

Ryan, Spearing, Sessi

Viv, Vass, Cullen, Philliskirk, Gnanduillet, Quigley, Roache

Then sign a left back, centre half, two centre mids and three wingers.

We have missed a player of Potts' style this season.
It was initially filled by Longstaf but since that injury he just doesn't look the same player.
There is a definite gap betweenthe player infront of the back 4 (Ryan / Spearing) and hence the forwards come back too far looking for the ball.

I'd love to sign Lumley, interesting to see who does buy the club and what £ funds are made available for the manager.

It's all about new owners of course. That said there isn't much i would keep. Happy enough with Abel's assessment. BUT no way is Lumley going to sign for us he is too good and Brummie will be off to see if he can get in their team.

Vass is infuriating. He is powerful and quick but boy is he stupid. His positioning is terrible really bad. He sits on defenders rather than try and drop off them. He calls for balls when there are players between him and them not through balls. On Saturday they were a really big team he was trying to compete in the air rather than making runs, I get it that it depends on instructions and quality of ball but he is too good not to score more.
