    Too many of our fans aren't.
    Under the current circumstances, setting our hearts on the play offs would more than likely prove counter productive. Particularly with new ownership imminent.

    We all believe in the manager, but unrealistic targets should be secretly harboured, otherwise too many are looking for a reaction when they're not achieved or looking likely to be achieved..

    New manager, new league, new approach, chronic injuries...theres a list as long as your arm as to why Montanier will more than likely have us punching above our weight in midtable. Think that should be the benchmark for now.

    Think Fawaz can kiss any chance of a Jan transfer goodbye, as great as he is no one is gonna risk 5mill on a guy that can barely manage 45 minutes

    As Otis said he's been out for a long time and seems he's the type who will keep picking up lesser injuries for a while before coming good again.
    I certainly wouldn't sell as I think a distinct chance of a relegation fight would become more likely.

    Yes but 5 mill what we paid for him, doubt we would cover that for a player that looks out of shape and is barely playing 45 mins.

    2 goals in his last appearance. Out of shape? If he's out of shape then god knows what the majority of us are then.

    He's gonna struggle with injuries for at least the next season and a half but at a goal every 56 minutes he apparently doesn't need to play a full 90 to put them away

    Being the player he is pace and strength increases the likely hood of injury, a little extra weight will put a lot of pressure on his body and joints. Players with his strength usually don't have the longest careers as it is

    Don't agree. Clubs near the bottom of the prem start to panic and will start splashing the cash, especially on a goalscorer. There isn't many of them about.

    It's the exact reason Big Sam will probrably be in work again by February. Somebody will panic and he will save them.

    Play Offs?
    As soon as we look like putting even a back to back win together we have an injury crisis.
    Injured full backs is the latest crisis.

    One thing we need to do once the Americans are in place is look very closely at our recruitment policy.
    We seem to buy older injury prone players that low and behold get injured. Its killing us again and again.

    Mid table at the very best this season.

    With Cash today, don't forget Britt was last week to West Ham.

    Being touted around like Darlow, Lascelles, Antonio and Burke ?

    I really don't trust Fawaz.
    I will be on tenterhooks until he is finally gone.
    I just hope the Americans have a policy of developing and keeping academy players. So important for our future as a whole.

    Well if they want successful examples there are a few in the top division who've made that model work - Southampton, Bournemouth, etc.

    Only a complete and utter cretin would think you can just throw random millions at any old hodge-podge of players and be successful.

    Oh.

    If we sold the number of academy players Southampton have sold then this place would be in absolute meltdown. Not a season goes by without them selling one, if not more, of the players they have either developed themselves or made better.

    It's a perfectly sensible strategy and they have made it work brilliantly, but if the criteria is to develop our own and keep them then Southampton are arguably the worst example going.

    As for Bournemouth, that FFP fine awaiting them should they ever drop back again is evidence that they wern't a well run outfit as so commonly believed, but a club who conned the system, fair play to them for that, it worked for them, but it doesn't make them an example of a well run club.

    Maybe if Southampton had kept them they'd be European Champions? Just saying.

    Players will always have heads turned due lottery win wages, longer contract, better chance of success etc.

    Until you can change human nature, or the money in the game the big boys will always take who they want as they know the player themselves will make it happen.

    It's a good point DD.

    The oft-lionised Patrick Bamford, for example, has presumably decided that trousering thousands and thousands of Chelsea's pounds every week, for never actually playing for Chelsea, is preferable to him than staying at a club and making a name for himself.

    Intelligent move really. He gets paid a fair amount for doing very little...
