    So.... Has the squad improved?

    Is the squad for the second half of the season better than the one we had until December? And is it better that the one we had for the end of last season (when we finished fourth). If it is, all the whiners need to shut up about TBs so called lack of ambition.

    I think we are definitely better off that this time last year, and that's the most important thing. If no one else does I will compare the ins and outs to prove it.

      Proof we be in the pudding at the end of the season. Last year we finished 4th. Bloom wanted a top 6 finish this season. I personally think we will just miss out. Not entirely Oscar's fault as we had a horrendous injury list. This window was key and i think we are walking away weaker but with a healthier bank balance.

      TB has spent a fortune, and is still spending £8m every year, the whiners need to shut up regardless.

      As for the squad vs 1st half - Bridcutt wasn't able to help much this season, but Crofts is a big loss - I don't expect Stephens to hit the ground running that well, but he should get into it after a handful of games. El Abd was a backup - even if we love him. Barnes is a loss, but Ulloa should be coming into fitness, and I expect Rodriguez will be and improvement on Barnes, so I think we're ahead there. I guess Obika will be a backup, but a backup striker is probably more useful than a back up defender (given the rest of our squad).

      So not a lot in it. If CMS or Hoskins can get fit and on form, then I think we'll be stronger.
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      They were obviously thinking of offing Barnes for a while, so only played him to keep him in the shop window, which has cost us valuable points at the end of the day

      Who should have played instead of Barnes then ? He hasn't had a bad game all season.
      Who provided the first pic of Amex Progress? Who told you of the Amex staff sackings? Who told you that Sammy Lee wasn't coming?

      Good argument. He added so much to the squad we sold him

      It wasn't an argument it was a question. Didn't you see the squiggly mark with a dot under it?

      Apologies. You are correct of course. If Barnes added to the squad, and didn't have a bad game for us this season, what do you reckon was behind the decision to sell him?

      How can we know until the new players are given a chance to settle in and get used to our system.

      Ask again come end season
      It's a marathon, not a sprint.
