    True mate but McCall isn't hinting at buying. 5 loans he might do.

    If they are the right calibre of player I dont have a problem maxing out on loans until we see the way forward with regards Covid etc.

    I agree but for me some of the players that are left over are not good enough. Only Wood I would keep.

    Wonder who these youth players are also.

    I'm all for giving kids a chance given they are good enough in the managers opinion, but 4/5 in the first team squad is a big % let's hope the players still contracted to the club show different form under McCall.

    You really believe that. Brown paper envelopes under the table will happen even more now. A player wants more money and he'll get and it'll be done all hush hush tax free. Cough cough.

    Yep I genuinely believe there will be 1000s of footballers out of work who will have to accept they wont be on silly money for playing 4th division football.

    Fingers crossed we might have some clarity at last regarding the 2019/20 season after tomorrow's scheduled EFL meeting.
    Obviously supporters and club officials are well and truly frustrated by the delays regarding closure in these uncertain times but with the clock ticking any further delays could be catastrophic for lower League clubs going forward.
    It's great to have transfer talk but in reality until were given the green light there's nothing doing.
    I really hope tommorow we can at last move forward with a recruitment plans and I'm sure everyone associated with club feels the same.
    Like I said the dithering must stop we all want clarity not further delays.

    Does anyone know what the budget is this season? Makes me think current running costs are being taken out of the player budget...

    I'm hoping we actually make a decent go of it. So many players to get on a free... 5 loanees would get right under my skin, hated the loanee season when we came down season before..... Never play for the badge. (except Connolly this season)

    Cullen, Burke, Reach and Pickford all recent examples who were so good for us that would normally be out of reach if it wasn't for loans.

    All players brought in by Phil Parkinson, and as you say all added quality to the team where as Gary Bowyers were more in desperation to try and cover for injuries.

    If we can get five decent loan for a season costing nothing it would be stupid not to in the situation we are in

    3 buttons and a fried Mars bar. It's the city way. Those running the club and the happy clappers love league 2 and not interested in promotion.

    You are geographically incorrect with the deep fried mars bar thing. They can only be found in Scotland. ;)

    Lots of players wanting clubs and maybe
    an opportunity for some clubs to sign
    players they couldn't of afforded pre
    pandemic, but players have families and
    lifestyles commensurate with their previous
    incomes.

    Mortgages which they won't be able to afford,
    and some may well leave the game to get a
    job that will be sustainable and give security.

    So many aspects and consequences to all this.

    To be fair places like York, Harrogate, Bakewell are way out of @Keefly Bantam@Keefly Bantam league. He's use to some nasty Chicken Cottage take away place in Keighley which doesn't have a hygiene rate because the inspector is scared to enter it's so dirty.
