I'm predicting a quiet summer. If some club hoovers up some of our best then we'll have to replace them but that apart I'd be happy next season with the present lot playing with the handbrake off.

Agree with this as I am sure are many others....Would like to see the younger members of the squad used earlier in the season in order to evaluate them.

Don't take this the wrong way, but we have a new manager - unless he has subcontracted that role to you, I'd prefer him to do the evaluation.

As would I Jazzi, although it is understandable that the wording in my previous post is open to interpretation, I would still be interested in what others on think of the suggested intent of the post.

No! We need more strikers for certain plus backup at right back and finally more pace out wide.

I think Taylor will bring in 4-5 new players.

I'm sure I read that two more lads were offered terms -- Jordan Dyer and James Dodd.

With three strikers having left MT has already said we need to bring in two more strikers to lighten the load on Jayden at the moment we only have Matt Jay

Given the size of budget and probable higher wages on offer, how many of our contracted players are likely to end up with our former manager at MK Dons?

i suspect between one and four.
Disagree. They may be able to offer more wages but they would have to offer decent fees to get them and MK won’t have that kind of financial muscle.

Add to that, we’re not going to be keen on selling to a possible promotion rival so they would have to really offer big money for us to accept. In today’s bloated market Stockley is worth between £1-2M and Pym, JMT, Boateng etc probably around the £3-500k mark. MK won’t have that kind of money.

Unless they go for someone who’s worth less such as James (please) or Sweeney but still can’t see many, if any, going.

And besides, MK have been signing up players while not having a manager in place so it is unlikely the owner will let tisdale spend more money on his old clique, who lets face it didn't get out of league 2. I think tisdale will go elsewhere

The three strikers who left will hardly be missed, they didn’t contribute much. Agreed that Stockley needs help and we'd be useless up front without him. If asked, I wonder who Stockley himself would choose for a strike partner.

Precisely. If Stockley gets injured we’d be left with Jay as the only forward who’s played for the first team so signing 2 strikers is an absolute must.

Yeah ..the no's of strikers we hve atm IS a concern at least 2 and maybe even 3 signings would be good. Or are there any good young ones in the pipe line ?
