Default Re: Russell Penn leaving

Penn looked better when Rooney was in the team (and vice versa). Difficult to judge anything until we see who comes in but last summer was totally uninspiring. Must get better this time around so Keates has a massive job on his hands. Hoping the playing budget is at least the same as last year so the build a budget scheme can make a difference. Keates clearly has a value of what he thinks a player is worth and sticks to his guns on it.

There is better players out there, and I imagine Keates has a good list of alternative players he'd like to bring in.
There may be better players, but we don't seem to be able to attract any of them.

The Board have stated the budget will be larger. The BtB Fund adds to that undisclosed figure. We will have more cash and fewer players. Hence DK should be offering better deals; this will include 2-year deals to some players.

Let's see how things pan out before we all swing like a Dixie-pendulum!

I still think Jordan Evans should be signed; but not as a LB!

Not too worried about losing Penn personally, he started off well but he wasn't at all mobile and I do think we can find better.

What worries me is that Keates was in the Leader saying he was confident he would sign and it was a case of ironing out a few minor details. Why wasn't he able to sell the club to him?

Wait for Keates' explanation and who we sign instead. If it's a worse player than Penn then froth away.

Not bothered about Penn. He ain't that good, looked average for the majority and legs have gone.

Also a little concerned that we don't seem to be able to keep the players the manager wants to.
Thats the pattern now, lose most players in the summer, sell our best player in January and repeat. We'll always struggle as long as this continues.

Hopefully DK will have learnt something from this. It's difficult getting the balance right between being overly optimistic to resolutely dour. DK may have been a bit Tigger-ish, but I am sure he'll learn quickly, whilst also attracting better quality players.

Early doors yet.
