Some major decisions will need made and soon the loan players go back in June weah Burke benk tohjlan. boyata lustig hayes out of contract . so if it's lenny he'll need told soon so he can start his preparations if not the new guy should be sounded out now and get things moving this could be the biggest and most important window ever as it should stabilise us for next 2 years if done right. us did is needed.

We've got a bit of a rebuilding job to be ready for European qualifiers and, more importantly, going for 9 in a row. I can't wait. At least there will be a fair few signings (or loans. ) but the new manager should be given sufficient funds to get the squad ready.
The only thing that concerns me is the wage bill which needs reduced somewhat. Lennon (if appointed) won't be paid as much as BR was but it would be great if we can get a few more peripheral players moved on. It'll be an exciting time for sure.
Ed will be looking forward to it too I'd imagine.

Mally I would imagine plans are already in place regarding replacements, Lennon or the new manager will have an input but I think agents and players will already have been contacted. Most of these transfers take months if not longer to put in place, so Lawwell and our recruitment team will already be on the case.
We hear talk of our £59m wage bill must be reduced, but this summer is the perfect opportunity as 11 players will either be out of contract or their loans ending. The club can trim the wage bill but still bring in 3/ 4 quality players. Remember also we have the 2 Americans and the Ukrainan winger all coming in and Bayo should be integrated and up to match fitness same with Griffiths coming back.
We will need to replace the 2 centre halfs leaving Boyata and Benkovic, but no major surgery to the squad, given that Rogic, Nitcham will also be ready to play.

Good points Tim, the cb position is a major prob, my concern is we never seem to get business done early, especially with the qualifierslooming, but take your point major surgery not required just a couple of quality signings and trim the wage bill at same time.

06 Mar 2019 14:57:11
Yes Mally all eyes will be on Lawwell to finally bring in 2 PERMANENT quality centre halfs.

06 Mar 2019 15:11:03
The consolation is we had a very large squad even before the loan signings and although there are a couple of positions that need urgent action (including manager? ) ; the vast majority of the team that have been doing so well, will still be here; plus the additions mentioned above.

I’d love to see us keep Burke and Weah beyond this season in some capacity Toljan and Benkovic can head back to their clubs.

Mallthetally. I hope P Lawwell struggles to get two new centre backs in . The worse thing that could happen is for P L to sign 2 centre backs in June and for you and many others going mad in August that they are not good enough.

06 Mar 2019 19:26:45
If there is to be a new manager and as much as I love NL l hope we bring in some one new and he is in place for May with his budget target for new players in place but knowing us if it is to be a new manager we Will get him in August with no time for new players there IS no excuse for time to get it sorted but 3am sure PL will come up with one.

I'm not too fussed about losing benkovic. Is a good player but seems to be Boerighter reincarnated regarding injuries.
