I fear we are heading for another Mills fiasco of signing anything agents dump on us, he might be lucky if Flynn is still about.
All rumours. Looks like Tollitt wants to play for Hughes so why wouldn't others want to?

If any of the current squad dont like him then we will find that out when they turn down contracts and do a runner. To be honest with you, I'd rather Hughes here with his own squad of players to see what he can actually do as a manager, rather than give him a squad of players that dont have the quality or the mentality to win promotion.

His failings in the transfer market coincided with the budget being slashed.
This isn't a mere coincidence.
I mean, do you really believe all those poor players he signed were his top, first choice targets? Don't be silly. As if he really wanted the likes of N'Tame, I believe the players in the squad swallowed a large chunk of his budget and alongside the cuts it left him with little choice in terms of who he could afford.

Back to the thread. BH has done well and seems to have emerged from a poor spell with the squad still playing for him which for a rookie could go either way. And its also good to hear he's realised his mistakes and reverted back to a way of playing that got us here in the first place.
This. I think Morrell ticked so many boxes that I'm surprised we went leftfield with Hughes, the same could have been said if we'd have got Lawrence.

I'd say Hughes is par for the course so far.

The Mills fiasco seems to have been a watershed for the Board....They must have been seriously out of pocket dismissing him....
The policy now is, get a young , rookie manager, and give him a 3 year contract....The first two, jumped ship, and are now being found out.....
Let's hope it's third time Lucky.......Because with a policy like that...Luck plays a big part......

With all the turmoil we have had and on our fourth manager I am amazed just how good we are doing and still in with a chance, rather than saying its spring, the clocks change and we are are planning for next season.

My heart says we are going up and as we attract more attention than most other clubs I am hopeful we can attract good players with an increased budget that comes from being in L2, TV and bigger cup games - all without major investment from somewhere / someone. The head says it will be tough and we may fall at the last hurdle, but Barnet game has given a little hope.

Its all about finding those players and that needs homework.
Take the Cowley brothers as a great example. Another promotion.

They carry no passengers and their recruitment in the main has been spot on even at 2 different clubs and different budgets.
Whereas we have carried at least 5 each week as the ratings often show.

Its not an easy job we know but dont make it more difficult by recruiting players that offer nothing.

The Cowley's were recruited for the outstanding jobs they had done at Braintree, but you have to appreciate Lincoln's chairman was pumping £1m a cool £200K in the kitty each season, then on top of that the mega financial return from their cup run followed by huge increases in gates means they can shop in a completely different market to us.

Not sure where your figures come from but I read their South African benefactor put in around £100k a year. We had a cup windfall this time of over £200k so we could have improved it. Just imagine our gates if we had stayed top.

As we often get told its not always how big it is, its what you do with it that counts.

Interesting reading about the Cowleys who of course started off as PE teachers. Someone gave them a chance and look at where they are now. Hughes' foot golf past has been widely mocked yet he unlike the Cowleys has been a premier league footballer.
