Signing Lainton on is a priority for me with Dibble as back up is good enough.

DEFENCE

LB, I'd keep Jenno (though try and sign better then use Jenno as back up),
RB, we definitely need a better signing here, again keep Roberts as back up.
CB, Pearson, Lawler, Smith, Kennedy and Tharme are perfectly good enough, could argue that we can release one and Loan out Tharme to get him game time (he needs to be getting minutes on the pitch).

MIDFIELD

Needs a complete upgrade, we need hardened midfielders in the mould of Pearson, Lawler and Kennedy to improve the strength of the spine.
This should have been the Continuous Improvement from last season but Ricketts failed then and it is glaringly obvious it hasn't been addressed.
I'd keep Young and Summerfield as back up, then loan out Wright (see Tharme).

UP FRONT

Your not going to like this but I'd stick with what we have initially as the changes to the rest of the team could improve their game.
Oswell and Stockton could come good with improvements made elsewhere, I would say Beavon but he's going to be 35 soon, he has the best work ethic and football brain out of all of our players and if he can go another season I'd use him as the impact sub.
I'd even keep Fondop but loan him out again if he didn't knuckle down.
If however there is the possibility of getting proven goalscorers then they must be brought in.

We have had the best defence for two or three seasons now, last summer should have seen a stronger midfield being put in place, the failure to do that has set us back 12 months and now it will need addressing this coming summer, where we should have been in the position of getting the 15-20 goal a season strikers as the last pieces of the jigsaw.

Equally as important is the set up of a reserve team to give back up players game time to keep them fit and ready to step into the first team when called upon.
It would also be there to develop our own youngsters which we absolutely need to be doing.
This looks like Fifa Club Soccer manager style selections to me.

So we keep Roberts and Jennings, but use them as back up. Financially, cannot see how viable that is given they are paid as first choice players, so you are going to then chuck that at another two full backs as well (that is presuming that both are happy to sit on the bench.)

Same with Summerfield and Young. Presuming they are happy to sit on the bench, we are then expecting to go out and sign players on probably less wages then they are on......but they need to be better than both.

Reserve team football also isnt a financially viable option for the club either.

If we don't I'm not convinced we would. That's more to do with me not being confident that the club could find that player at the right price. The defence (Tuesday night aside) is fine, a new marauding right back would be great but Carrington is fine there in this league.
I'd rather find better midfielders and forward players personally, this is where we have struggled for the last two seasons and is what has ultimately led to our lack of consistency that has cost us the title.
Jennings is easily good enough for a conference champions team.

In that case why did Forest Green get rid?

Presumably because they could afford a league 1 full back.

What does that even mean

That means we shouldn’t have got rid of Jalal, as he was good enough for a champions team using your logic.

Because he isn't good enough for a division two title/play off challenging team.

Err no they got rid when in the same league as us when they weren't even in a chance of going up.

But hey I accept some think he is good I just think he's average at best, that's democracy.

Not really sure without looking it up but I think he went to Cheltenham promoted with them and they deemed him not good enough in league 2 then he joined us. But either way that makes no odds really how many seasons later?

I'm sure his contract is up in the Summer so whoever the manager is then will decide. I say whoever because if it's still Yozzer then he hasn't done well enough to move up 😉
