Pre Pre Season
Before Our pre season gets underway there a million and one jobs to sort, youth contracts staff contracts etc, and after the eason Ive had - I can't take this s*it
I go out and get another 90's legend to cover this off
comes in to sort that lot out.
I then go on a bit of a purge on getting some deadwood out, notably,Jack Wilshire l
eaves. He served his purpose at the start, but now hits time is up
I then indulge with a couple of good freebies, bolstering my set piece options, adding leadership, and some proven winners.
I also bring Umtiti
in as there is still a lot of interest around Nathan Ake'
Next up a Striker....
Due to having some fund age issues, I indulge in the loan market after trying to no avail to get Robert Lewendowski
as a freebie.
Im going to indulge @nickman69 and get Edouard on the inside forward trail so need a supplementary striker for Chris Wood.
I think I do rather well in getting this gentleman onboard HMS Burnley
Im then pretty content as pre season starts, but I do a player search on work rate skill technique etc to see what comes up after Spurs test my nerve on Sandro Tonali
in case I need a replacement
THIS GUY COMES UP.......
I ask how much they want for him
"Nothing" is the response ....
What ... Zilch , Nada, Nothing ?!
I immediately offer a good contract and ...
I KNOW THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING YOU
THIAGO is a claret. 32 I know but ... come on
The summary of my Ins don't look too bad ( and certainly not too bad on a financial front)
Granted they are all around the 30 mark, but... but I need a good season ... and I need it now.
I do bring in Ethan Ampadu
for a decent fee and immediately get him out on loan as he could be a longer term replacement for James Tarkowski
Then the fixtures come out and to be frank.... If i do get 6points out of this I need sacking!
I go into pre season quietly confident... although I did that last year !!
I cancel the trip to Singapore and send the lads up the lake district. .. we don't deserve it after last year.
Fuelled by Kendal mint cake and fresh air... I think we're in for a blinder in season 4 !
