Hopefully, we are trying very very hard to secure the quite brilliant Matty Williams from Chester. Apart from that, I think we should be seeking to secure some older, more experienced heads to bolster our squad which is youthful enough.

Do we need another CB? we've got 3 starter quality and a very suitable bench option with Roscoe.

I think we're gonna see a larger squad this year, the new Mickey Mouse comp and 7 subs kind of dictates it.

I expect we'll see the retained list as soon as we've done speaking with the out of contract lads. I doubt we started on the process as early this year what with the whole Play Off excursion.

Either way, I want to see us send a 3/4 off in to the sunset and bring in 5/7 to bolster squad.

I've heard we're working to get further cash investment so obviously I'm expecting Prem in 5 years also.

What we DON'T want is loan players who aren't starting games. Sonny Aljofree? Did he ever so much as train with us?

That isn't a loan in the normal sense of the word. And if Utd have another Oyedele for us to borrow we'll take the odd Aljofree deal's in the mix. They are all free after all.

Croasdale and Paddy Madden both leaving County although I suspect both will stay in the EFL

Unfortunately you have to be brutal to keep pushing on - look at Stockport and Wrexham saying goodbye to recent club legends - if someone comes available that threatens to push an existing starter to the bench, that's exactly the way that things should work.

With regard to our centre backs, I suspect that at least one of them might be out of contract this summer - in which case they might end up needing to be replaced.

Cooper and Baines both signed contract extensions earlier this year.

I think he might be referring to either James Jones or Roscoe? (possibly the former?)

Yeah, to put it another way: we don't need another [insert position here] - yes that's true as things stand, but might not be the case in a week's time, we don't know.

And if we choose to release (or someone doesn't sign a deal) we should now be looking for a replacement that we feel confident will be starter quality... for promotion / League Two, not starter quality for what we were this time last year (or the year before).

Not just referring to the centre back situation here - the same is true of finding a midfielder that could threaten to bench Elliott or Isaac, or a winger that could bench Justin or Alex.

The 'starter quality' goalpost moves.

Yes, I can see that number departing at least but I also feel, given we all recognise that we need a larger squad, there'll be more than that coming in.
As Marple has said elsewhere, new signings need to be capable of a first team spot rather than more squad players.

Yep. It's when we lose first choice names we look thin on options. Prime case being Ethan Ross.

I would release:-

Mooney
Roscoe
Angus
Hancox ( couldn’t fault his effort but I feel we need a top top CM )
Joey Jones

Assess :-
Kossy ( as a number 10? )


Would look to sign:-

Young and hungry striker, to push Regan
Another wide player ( possibly Sinclair )
Quality CM
Decent FB cover


Replacing CCC will be the biggest challenge. Could a fit Crankshaw play there…

Generally agree with you but a couple of quibbles.
I think Hancox can play LB and we've no other cover there.
Secondly, I'd go for a more experienced CF for Regan to work with and learn from.
Thirdly, it's a toss up between James Jones and Roscoe. We only need one of them.
Fourthly, not Sinclair thanks
