Exactly!!!! I like what Keates has done and that is why I admire the fact he has a value of what he believes a player is worth and sticks to it. I did say he has a massive task in the summer, but in my opinion unlike his predecessor will have already put in a lot of groundwork on researching players and will know what he wants.

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.
Agree we need to break that cycle. But DK has done the right thing, IMHO, by ridding the club of all the substandard players.

We should not underestimate the enormity of the task, especially when set against the fans' expectations.

We still have the rest of May, June, July and August. Not all retained lists are out yet either. I'm sure there are plenty of discussions behind closed doors going on. People have to realise we won't be the only club in for these players. It's down the club and management to sell Wrexham FC to them and then hope our wage and contract length is competitive with our competitors. I also think a lot rides on whether Tranmere go up or not. If they go up a lot more Norther based players come available. If they stay down then a lot of Northern based players will wait and see if they can get interest from Tranmere. I just don't get at this early stage why so many expect us to have made signings. Players will be on holiday, mulling over their options etc.

If he had played a bit better he could have demanded the extra cash he was no doubt looking for.

Over to Keates...

Agree. Let's give DK time and the benefit of doubt. As you say, he has a difficult task ahead of him. Let's hope he's up to it. I personally think he is. Unfortunately, some folk overreact to these minor set-backs, and we therefore oscillate between ecstasy and despair. Or at least some do!

Disley would be good signing for a season. Ibrahimovic did ok at Man U this season and he's no youngster - and yes it is a different position etc but I think as long as surrounded by right players he would be an asset - I agree with those who say him and Penn wouldn't work well together due to lack of pace, but he started a lot of games in league 2 last season and is also a leader on the pitch.

Good point about the pulling power of Tranmere in the region. Hope they are promoted, as FGR is a much nicer place to go to.

I liked Russel Penn. Thought he was the type of character we needed at the club. What's Kyle Storer up to?
