If it goes to last summer's form, which relegated clubs out of contract lists should we be looking at?

Lets hope you don't get excited about any of our future recruits then :).
Absolutely!

I felt the hype around the 'marquee signings' last season was ridiculous. MT touched on it on his promotion interview yesterday, people's expectations of what ECFC can afford/attract are so unrealistic.

Part of the problem is that a lot of people only think a player can be good if we pay a transfer fee. Bosman changed the market completely and there are now so many good players out of contract that clubs can sign for free.

Barrow haven’t released Ozzie Zanzala or put him on the transfer list
Since his loan he's become more interesting to his owners, he got dropped, got loaned out, got promoted, went back to crap Barrow. Probably trying to get a fee for him now, or actually decided they could use his style of play.
If he comes to us or not we'll remember him as a big part of our fantastic run in.
Q Who was the worst out of Flack and Zanzala?

That isnt a very good comparison. Flacky love him or not scored almost 100 goals for us that deserves better than the comment you make imo

Didn't enjoy the flack years but in retrospect that probably wasn't down to flackie himself. In better teams with better infrastructure he probably would have been better. His record speaks for itself. Ozzie ain't in the same league...
