No guarantee in that. Budgies .sold one player for 34 million fees on incoming players 65 million. Give or take ..wages over 30 million...did that stabilise them in the Premier ship.let alone guarantee their status...!!!.. you definitely would not sell your club for 150 ..200.million .for that to happen a club needs to be mid table for two to three years. Plus the players taking in to consideration..Will be.practically a new team. And need to gel .and we all know about that word ..GEL LOL. Jst my opinion..hey .I'm an ipswich fan for past 35 years so not trying to be a party poorer .just putting things in to perspective and not trying to get ahead of ourselves
It depends on the quality of the player you buy. They bought in a lot of foreign players who were simply out of their depth in the PL . Maybe they couldn’t attract anything else . I don’t think Toen will have that problem .
Haha - not for a few more years anyway :lol:

I think we will Have to wait now, likely the final 2-3 targets are harder to get - probably because fee’s are involved, players waiting for other offers and clubs needing to find replacements etc.

Usually filters down from leagues above as they make signings it allows them to let others go etc.
Is the deadline end of august? Wouldn’t surprise me if we didn’t sign the last 2-3 until close to that or right on the day. At least we have done some early business and have a squad ready enough to begin the season.

Looks like Bakinson is still on the cards just having to sort out a price that Bristol City wants, and Hladky is still our backup Keeper

Yep I had high hopes for the lad, but he didn't take his chances. He's a tenacious player, and I wish him the best of luck with his career.

Yeah personally I think he deserved a run in the team and then he would have done much better given game time

TWTD understands Town have made a bid for Leeds United left-back Leif Davis.

The offer is understood to be around the £1 million mark plus additional cash in potential top-ups.

Newcastle-born Davis, 22, was with Morecambe’s youth set-up as a schoolboy before joining the Elland Road club’s academy in July 2018.

Davis, who is 6ft tall and can also operate as a wing-back and at centre-half, spent last season on loan at AFC Bournemouth in the Championship, making 10 starts and five sub appearances, a move which was initially viewed as a precursor to a permanent switch.

For his parent club he has made six first-team starts and has made eight appearances from the bench.

Town have already signed one left-back this summer, former Morecambe man Greg Leigh, however it had been expected that they would look to bring in a second before the start of the season.

Strange as I was led to believe we were broke.

Its worrying when we going for this type of player..doesn't instill confidence..considering we have to get up this year. As its only one step away from premier league .this interest and waiting flynndowns knock backs suggests as I've already stated..that war chest is near empty and mckenna told ..get us up with what you got

I don't believe we are broke Mike, just being frugal maybe, if Gamechanger had not of taken over would of been a totally different story and dread to think of where we would be now.

With the potential of Davis coming in would this mean Penney could be an option alongside Edwards for the left wing maybe? or move him on and bring in someone else in competition for the left side role? I personally don't mind Penney, think he is ok, some will differ in opinion.

What is the opinion on Harper, is he going to be sold or loaned out? With Burns on the right who is his competition if he was to get crocked, and would we need someone else in?

I really don’t get this ‘we are broke’ talk?! 1m for a player at league one level is a huge fee. You simply cannot balance the books if you go and spend £10m on players, you’d be hung on the financial fair play rules.

To me this seems a v logical signing, a player from above who likely has talent but lack of opportunity due to his club being in a different shopping arena now they are in the PL. At a good age with room for growth and sell ok value, wages won’t be too massive either.

We either buy these or we buy from around and below us.

I was being cynical, I don't believe we are broke at all, far from it, it was in response to the comments made on here about the owners pulling the reigns in due to the pension fund having taken a hit, hence us bringing in freebies. 🙄

Personally I think we can spend what we want subject to rules but KM was astute enough to get some decent signings in without spending which for me is good business sense.

What is worrying ? 1 million at L1 level not good enough for you ? What doesn't instill confidence? You are completely wrong, it suggests the war chest is far from empty.

so that will be one of the 2 further additions I was expecting, and this guy would seem to fulfill the LB/LWB position.

One signing to come then - a striker. I'm waiting to see who we get with bated breath, and nobody bates their breath better than I do because I am a master bater.

Seems like the perfect type for us...young, experienced and hungry!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leif_Davis

Also, did someone already post this?
Meanwhile, the Blues remain interested in Leicester City striker George Hirst. The 23-year-old scored 15 goals on loan for League One club Portsmouth last season, with Pompey keen to bring him back. It's believed that Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers wants to take a look at the front man in pre-season before deciding what his next move should be.

My response was to Denny sorry. What I would say is a pension fund isn't as badly hit as other owners/business in hard times, yes the overall fund value is impacted but they are never viewed in a short term period - but the pot is still being paid into, i.e its still got 'customers' buying the product.

You quote "Personally I think we can spend what we want subject to rules but KM was astute enough to get some decent signings in without spending which for me is good business sense." is absolutely bang on in my view - we are spending but as its not silly play money we are still being sensible and giving it a business approach - rather than the approach of a rich owner using it as a play thing.

Basically the owners want to invest but do it wisely as they would with any other business, and hopefully growth the business (club) and increase its value, no point wasting money or over-paying etc.

Yep could be a good addition if it comes off, seems very versatile

Town already have a significant transfer war chest this summer following last year’s takeover and, as reported earlier in the week, have lodged a £1 million bid with Leeds for left-back Leif Davis.

We understand Leicester striker George Hirst, who we revealed in May was among the frontmen interesting the Blues, is now very much a firm target.
I think this puts to bed any notion we can't spend.

Just looking on fans forum ref Davis, he is down to be part of their pre-season trip to Oz which I believe starts on July 14th so we should know soon whats happening if rumours are to be correct....

Just seen rumours we have had a bid rejected for Hirst, unsure if this is a def, does sound possible seeing we need a bit more firepower up front.

Cowley at Pompey seems to think he will be coming back to them, but expect thats him flapping his mouth off again. If this is the caliber of striker we are after who else would be in the frame if this did not materialize? Does sound we are going for a quality player.

and God knows we need one, because the striking options we have at the moment do not inspire confidence in any way shape or form.

I'm not sure I consider him our saviour. He's scored less than 20 goals in his career to date according to Wikipedia.

Interesting one, we have often been linked with him. I believe he had a slow start at Pompy but then started to do well during the end of the loan.

If championship clubs are circling then that is maybe a good sign? He certainly seems to fit the profile we seem to be targeting so I'd expect there is truth behind this.

I'll reserve judgement until he pulls on our shirt and is given a good run of games to prove himself.

But 16 goals in 6 seasons as a 23 year old forward, currently isn't exciting me.
