I haven't a clue what is going on at our club. Does anyone actually know for a fact or fully understand the position we're in with signings?

It's stated as fact on here (a fact I'm definitely not disputing, btw) that we're under various embargoes and yet we're signing players and the manager is saying that he wants six more. By all accounts we've got a loan signing lined up and now the press are suggesting we're after Lee Barnard as well. Yet we cannot register players.

The club suggested we can have a 20 man squad, the League suggested to Jam_Man that a club under an embargo can have a match-day squad (16-18 players) but if there is such a dispensation I'm pretty sure that it is in place to deal with clubs under an embargo getting hit with an injury crisis - not to allow a club to build a brand new squad over a summer.

I've just got a bad feeling (based on nothing) that the day before the season starts we're going to go out to the League for dispensation to play White and the other new signings and they won't grant it. Can anyone put those fears to rest for me?
