Another awful transfer window. We desperately need reinforcements and they will have no time to settle in now before the season starts. Poor again, what are our scouts doing, what is Freedman doing and how does he even have a job?

Yep, and my August holiday is already finished and was a washout. Why did the heatwave have to be so early ffs.

We may get players on deadline day but it would have helped a lot to get players in for at least part of pre-season

Other clubs manage it

Why is it all Freedman's fault?

I don't think its just DF it's the whole infrastructure and organisation, or seeming lack of. Southampton as an example sold Tadic and replaced him in a day or two. Negotiations for us seem to drag on until the countdown begins and we have to either go without, or overpay. I fear Roy is too nice in asking not demanding recruitments like Sam or Pulis, and we have been left behind by other teams in our mini league. There's still time of course but even if we do deals players will take time to bed in and we are playing catch up again.

There is a budget and limited one at that. Problem is anyone we put a bid in for will no doubt attract interest from other clubs.

It's all down to being prepared and obviously we're never that at the start of any window. These bids we're not reportedly making - why were they not made in June??

If i understand correctly the problems stem from pre-Freedman times. The big issue appears to be too many high earners, all of which came in on or before the last summer transfer window. Freedman has to find reasonably priced players on reasonable wages which is a tough job these days.

You wanted us to not make bids we are not making now in June?

His role is to co-ordinate all of the different departments within the club to make sure that they are all going in the same direction.

He will have a say in player recruitment yes, as will others but this is not his whole role. When he was talking at the trust Q&A he said one of his main objectives was to get the players blocking the progress of our youngsters out of the way, which arguably has been done.

Now we will see if they can make the step up

He will need to have a word with that Jason Puncheon, then.

Been thinking about our lack of signings this window....

Does anyone else think we could be taking our time to make sure we get the right players in?

Not sure if i do or not? Maybe i'm talking poo & this window will be as disappointing as the last few?

It's not ideal but it is the same approach we have had for several years now i.e. leave it until the last minute.

13 days to go.

Nah, they've had nigh on a year to sort out the most obvious holes in our squad and there little to no actual scouting to be done in the summer. Whoever they have decided to go for should have been identified months ago and bids placed accordingly.

Panic buying and agent fodder is what we'll get.

Nonsense. Roy plays the statesman with his dealings with the media and fans, but i'm willing to bet he's a right tricky f*cker behind close doors, as he should be. He's no mug.
