Interesting that no one has left (apart from loans). Do you think this is due to players on holiday, the value if our players putting clubs off or we just don't know the offers deals that are going on? Training starts next week and friendlies following I'd have thought DF and Webber would want the squad pretty much sorted (going on how DF likes to do things). I just don't want us going into the 1st game with the possibility of players maybe leaving or wanting to.
I think clubs are trying to leave it as late as possible for two reasons:
a) To save on wages
b) To get a better understanding of when the fans will be back and at what % of
their usual gate so that they can get some feel as to the financial loss.
Also once a big deal is done it may trigger others in a chain, e.g., If Man Ure or Chelsea
buy Chillwell from Leicester, it may trigger Leicester to buy Lewis and we then go and buy a replacement left back and may be some other players.
I mentioned this earlier that the pink un confirmed that DF and Webber don't want to sign a new GK as they feel they have good cover for Krul with McGovern and barnden The issue is we did this in the championship before and Krul's form dipped and we heard that having good competitor for his number 1 upped his game but it seems DF and Webber have forgotten this.
