Personally having a team of excellent players seems pretty fun to me (Although I appreciate it wonít happen) but your view may vary...

I don’t get why some people are so obsessed with a perceived lack of transfer activity.

Let’s look at what a Ricketts has done so far.

1. Appointed after the last game
2. Took his time reviewing videos of games and seeking opinions before announcing his retained list. Personally I think he got this right.
3. Offered 4 contracts to first team squad members who have all accepted. Add them to those already under contract and that means less transfer activity this summer than previous years
4. Agrees to release a player on compassionate grounds but replaces him a few days later.
5. Has said on a few occasions we are unlikely to sign anymore players till preseason. He wants quality which we all agree is needed. So why people aren’t listening to what he said baffles me. He has been very clear that we all need to be patient.
6. Coaching staff not yet in place but they aren’t needed till July. He’s already said he’s working on this.

Like all managers his success will come through good signings and strong coaching. Nobody should judge him or get concerned until he’s had time to prove himself. Let’s just all relax, enjoy summer and let Sam get on with his job.

Agree especially as he said he wasn't taking any holidays yet ,but its this statement he made that worries me "Has said on a few occasions we are unlikely to sign anymore players till preseason" . So off we go to Portugal etc with half a team and unable to sort out who does what who plays where because we are still recruiting players .
Just because Sam says things doesn't mean we have to accept all this bull . I am not worried at this time but I fear we are sleep walking into a real mess being led by a new manager with no experience and an executive board constantly cutting the amount he has to spend . But heh its all ok as we can have yet another BTB .
Sorry to sound a bit gloomy but the jury is out on Sam and until I see that we are recruiting better players etc I fear the worse but hope for the best

From one football fourm

Wrexham have approached Shrewsbury to take Ryan Barnett on loan. Wrexham are also close to taking Ryan Giles from Wolves on loan (spent time on loan at Telford last season).

Who is Ryan Barnett?
Who is Ryan Giles?
Does Sam love the name Ryan?

I really hope we don't build a team from loan players, it's always disappointment, if they perform they're straight back to the parent club and fee increases, do badly and we're stuck with them for a year. I don't mind loan signings to cover injuries but at this time of the season we're hopefully looking to invest in the team and sign players
