I am hoping Zak will improve exponentially and that’s down to the coaches and fitness. I am sure he is giving it his all personally.

I wonder how we will spend the £75k we save on the salary cap following George’s departure?

I can’t see why Edwards if he comes will be given a mythical war chest,the club is in cost cutting mode,about to lose our marquee player(which in fairness will save a chunk of change) and will continue to promote from the youth academy or get lads infrom the championship

Surely Edwards wouldn't come *without* the offer of a war-chest?

I do t expect anything great in terms of signings if and when the prodigal returns

Itd be like Mourinho turning up at Bolton wanderers.

Does nobody think that he may have been promised a "war chest" hence the cost cutting we are doing at the minute, plus the fact that Lam CLEARLY hasn't been given much / anything to spend?

Just a thought

Worryingly we are constantly told we are at the cap level - which when you consider the team shows how mismanaged our cap is
Always be yourself - unless you can be Dan Bilzerian then ALWAYS be Dan Bilzerian!

Contract improvements to those already in the squad.

No, the cost cutting has been going on for 3, 4, 5 years...
