Hi Guys

Hope you're well and the football withdrawal symptoms haven't started yet.

Met Kev and John in deepest Essex today to consolidate, unify and finalise targets. These are players that have all been watched extensively.

There's a unity in names, numbers and positions, and we're ready to strike immediately.

In budget, due diligence and now in complete agreement one day after the old season ends.

Incredibly proud of the work Kev, Daz, Benno, John, the scouts and I have done to get to this point.

We're ready.

Stan ?

Proper.

Get the ****ing cheque book out Ron and back the football department.

You owe these lads and all the fans a proper go at a swift return.
Exactly what Smiffy says.

The football department has done its work. Having a finalised list of targets the day after the season is over after almost 6 months of extensive scouting? Unheard of at this football club in recent times.

If things don't go well this summer, this post and all the other tidbits that we hear should leave nobody in any doubt about who's fault it is.

Get your finances and budget sorted, Ron. These fellas are giving us the best opportunity to turn this back into a club we can proud of and to regain our EFL spot. Those opportunities don't come around often at this level, as Wrexham and Stockport will tell you. Give them what they need. Don't pull the rug out from under their feet, and don't **** it up. Please.

Hopefully Tom has got the authority to go out and try to sign these lads without needing Ron’s input.

Stan says the targets are in budget, which of course implies that there is an agreed budget, and therefore you’d hope that Tom can just crack on without needing Ron’s say so.

Looking back to the December / January signings those were handled by Tom I think (and well handled too). Over to you then Tom!

He might not need Ron's input. But certainly needs his debit card...

Ron might remember backing Bond, Mark Moseley & Phil Brown on transfer, which we had few good in, but rest are awful!! There are talented non league players would love to play for us. John Still must be itching to tap Dagenham players who would improve us.

If we could make our first signing this week that would be class. Too optimistic?
