    There are going to be plenty of slots for youngsters - you need to have a bit of experience round the place as well to balance things.

    I think that's extremely unlikely!

    I see merits in both views. If there was an obvious choice to replace Bruce, I'd be happy to roll the dice. Equally with the current chaos, having some level of stability in the club is badly needed. Mind you, the thought of another 1000 pages of this thread might tip me over the edge...

    Dear Mr Levy, Thank you for your kind offer of £15m for the services of Jack Grealish. We have duly considered your offer and would like to inform you that our answer is that you can shove your £15m up your jacksie. Yours, AVFC

    I really wish we were in a position to not have gambling company sponsors.

    No, but someone on Twitter did.

    Spurs are pretty keen for English players for the first team squad so that should bump the price a bit.

    If he has to go, Spurs would be best for him and I could just about live with it. Many worse clubs sniffing about. Still clinging to the vain hope he wont go.

    Hedging my bets!

    Until we hear anything more concrete this is pretty much my take. Cash access is probably tight but I think the exporting restrictions are being oversold. Due to lack of cash Tony was banking on promotion and being able to call down against PL cash to pay the bills. Now that hasn't happened he's had to workaround the lack of cash with loans through the tangled web of businesses. Not great, but not completely disastrous. I'm sure we'll see as the summer progresses.

    Though we were robbed on that sale as well.

    He could just be lining up another bid for Millennium films with that £50m...

    Not sure I have much of an opinion either way at the mo - see where things fall. On the one hand, who on earth is going to come in with the current situation - knowing they have to sell everyone with a glimmer of talent or experience and won't have a penny to spend for the foreseeable? Whoever it is will be high risk. Bruce got us to the brink and has got a real team spirit in the side that was so broken. On the other hand, he did fail. We were set up too conservatively in too many games and the plan B - play all the strikers - was a massive failure every time. He has already not shown much confidence in the kids (Davis apart) so they are unlikely to be as into him as all the players that leave.

    Going Under ?

    It seems we haven't had a June Optimism gauge thread yet...

    Going Under ?

    Whelan, Jedi and Elmo all have for sale signs on them now as well. Will be interesting to see if the more advanced kids - Green, RHM etc decide whether to stay and take their chance to shine or to get out of this basket case of a club to somewhere where they know they'll get paid every month.
