Is that it? 13:50 - Jul 4 with 10819 viewsisitme

With the recent signings is that it, or is there more room in the budget?

Personally I would like some defensive cover (ideally someone who could fill in at both full back positions) and an experienced holding midfielder. I think we are well/overstocked in terms of numbers in the forward positions.

I fear that it might be.
Those of us who have worked in the public sector are familiar these days with the phrase "more from less".
Squeezeing an extra 10/15% from each employee will cover for a smaller workforce.
Having said that, whilst we won't have as big a squad as last year, we are assured that there will be no more square pegs in round holes.

I reckon there will be one more, but it may not be for a little while.

I would have thought we will be going back in for Hamilton, but may need to wait until Man Utd are prepared to release players after their pre-season tour.

Failing that, another central midfielder in his place. I’m sure BBM has a list of feasible options

Agree with that think there will be a midfielder coming in. Probably Hamilton if they can.

It needs clarifying that while it was the correct decision to look at reducing the squad numbers and the playing budget, will recent transfer money incoming see a percentage of it added to the pot for BBM to work with?

Going off previous mentions of how the playing budget is created it already depends on sales of players. The early sale of Adshead and the money from Dawson probably just means we won't have to sell anyone in January doubt it means we'll have that much more money to get more players in.

It's odd really that we've only brought in 2 more new names to the squad but people seem reasonably happy with that. I suppose it all comes down to BBMs ability to get the best out of the same players but over a full season.

It’s probably Ronaldo arguing over image rights and wanting the number 7 shirt,
He’s obviously looking for one last big contract ! 🤣🤣🤣

AFAIK the other two are Tom Miller and Byron Moore.

Dawson is good but crocked, and nearly 34.
Bunn will probably want more money than he's worth.
Miller is a right back, we don't need a right back.
Moore is a winger/forward who's had a reasonable career with Crewe/Vale/Gas before Bury. Probably the best option of these four, if not overly exciting.

With both of those players it depends which version you get.

Dawson has struggled with injury and isn't getting younger.

Bunn has always flattered to deceive and I may be wrong but when he was at Dale last time he thought he was far better than he was. Hopefully he's grown up but I haven't been impressed by his performances against Dale in the last few years.
