We all know as does he what his priority signings should be, that is not the real issue as it is the quality and cost involved of the player but also who would be willing to join, is the real question especially if we look likely to be relegated.
I would say DF needs to prepare for BOTH scenarios in any list of players to buy he compiles, currently we sit on the edge and our next 8 games holds the key to that, if we can win 4 games it gives us hope and Dougie's planning a lot easier, but it is Not an easy task.
concur nigel on this one...............
Frank brought nothing to the table in identifying players - alien to him that he had to do that !!
im sure Dougie will have identified players required but very difficult to plan for the rest of the season let alone beyond that in our current predicament.
Us showing progress and being out of the bottom 3 come 1st january though and with the current squad the 2 additions (matchday goalkeeper and matchday striker ) we all crave will be all the much easier to recruit to..

dougies been very coy with his business in the past so expecting an 'out of the blue'signing.

I agree that big money signings may not guarantee survival. We'd spunk loads of cash, then probably have to off-load at a loss if we go down.
Hoping the scouting network are monitoring hungry lower league players, that may be a potential solution.

Do you have info on the inner workings of the club and what Freedmans job actually entails? Or are you moaning for the sake of moaning?

The truth is none of us knows what he's doing. And we don't need to know either. He's probably working bloody hard behind the scenes on stuff that we don't need to know about or that we'd care very little about.

Can't believe i'm defending him tbh.

I'd love to go, but can't :-(

We haven't really heard much exactly DF's purpose so it would be good to hear first hand.

The bloke is now employed by Palace. The forum will only be productive if questions are about what he is doing, priorities, organisation etc.
It will be a waste of time if it is all about his leaving, whinging about SP/the Summer window etc. etc.
Sadly, I would guess it will mostly be about the latter.

You should have a listen to some of Dougie/Damos interviews Dougie was bloody persistent in getting Damo to sign as Damo tells it he'd decided to jack it in. Hence the blubbing at Wembley when we got promoted.

Your post is a bit pythonesque.......what have the Romans done for us......
In addition to bolasie and jedi and Delaney your also forgetting Murray on a free and wardy....let alone the development of zaha and Williams at the time........even kg did a job for us from relative obscurity.

Heard we are in talks with a non premier league midfielder to sign in January. Seems like a very Dougie signing, not a kid but a player most won't have heard of. A couple of other premier league clubs are sniffing about as well though so no guarantee of it coming off.

Think the focus is going to be as much on rebuilding a similar dressing room culture to the promotion wining squad as to what the players bring in terms of on the pitch.
