I think with Al-Hamadi, there was a communication from JJ suggesting that his head had been turned by the interest shown by Ipswich. In those situations, it's really hard to retain a player who could go off the boil/get injured/sulk and end up losing us lots of money. We didn't have to sell was the official line IIRC but some may prefer their own interpretation, as always

Blaming the AAH sale for shipping 3 goals against the team 4th from bottom. Clowns

It’s easy to have all these great ideas when you don’t have to implement them and will get to sit on the sidelines slagging off others when it goes wrong.

Saying that the club sells its best player season after season slightly ignores the near-certainty that, if we hadn't sold Assal, we'd never have bought the (far superior) AAH.

Like when people want the club to tell other supporters thought shit, you’re not getting your money back and just renege on the debt.

We don't deserve to get into the play offs. Our form since January has been awful, scrapping a few wins here and there. Lowest scorers in the league. Really disappointed about how we have played since losing Ali and Evans. No bravery and long ball. Such a shame cause the first half was fun and exciting. This last part of the season felt like last year with a few decent wins thrown in.

2 year contract for Jackson looks silly. Can such as treading water in this league for a few years now.
And if people don’t like the club having to sell to financially survive would they prefer being bankrupt and docked multiple points into oblivion? Or again is that just saying it when you’re in a position of not being accountable for consequences.

Again ignoring that when a player has an offer like that it’s not as simple as we’re not selling when you’re a league two club. Why don’t people just admit that saying you don’t have to sell is easy but making it work when the player gets upset isn’t as easy.

Roll up! Roll up!
If a player is under contract the decision to sell is surely the club's, ie it's a binary, yes or no decision, I'd say? I'm not sure there is the implication that player has been hawked around. Of course, it may be the fact that the club needs to sell the player in order to make ends meet, but that's down to the strategy of the club, rather than anything else

If we are trying to make Kelly work we need wingers/wing backs who look to get early/accurate crosses in. Most of our wide players look to make chances for themselves. What has happened to the old fashioned winger who stayed wide and whose job it was to put balls in the box. And why do we play wingers on their wrong foot so they have to cut inside and are easier to defend. Ardley was a great example of an okay player who helped us by the quality of his crosses.

We decided to sell our best player means we went and hawked him around looking for a buyer. That’s not what happened. A club on the edge of being in the premier league made it public they were interested. Fans with their glib, we could have made him stay it’s really easy, comments are unrealistic (to be polite). And we signed AAH in January and he scored more goals than the player he replaced.

But obviously just keep ignoring the truth to kick people for you not managing your own expectations.
After 34 games Doncaster were 20th on 39 points. 9 games later they are 8th on 64 points. Given how shit they were when we played there, it would be an astounding achievement if they make the play offs. It will be between whoever makes a late charge (looking like Doncaster now) and Franchise as to who goes up through the play offs Barrow and Crewe will make it because they have the points already but are out of form. The top three will stay as they are.

As for Kelly being the modern day Colin Gordon (who we bought for £90k from SwinDon in 1986), I don't think Gordon hardly played. Kelly has played loads. With Bugiel now signed up for 2 years, I don't know how we can change our style to accommodate him. If he is still not scoring at the start of next season we need to cut our losses.
Kelly is a dud.

Dream on, Silk. The bitter truth is, we have to sell our best players, just to stay afloat, whilst hoping to collect enough pre Jan points to bolster the all too predictable new year goal drought.

The final two matches need to play the youngsters who are in with a shout of being here next season. Don't play the ones who won't be, at least from the start of games. The work now starts on getting players signed up before the end of the season that we can. Can those on loan than are at the end of their contracts be signed on a retained basis until July 1st?

All true Silk. But also true is we had that front man, the best in the division. Then decided to sell him. Can't have a strategy to rebuild if you undermine the very foundations, season after season

Pete - I believe we will learn from the last three January windows and not sell our leading goal scorer and best forward.

SwinDon bought on a sub in the 46th minute who scored 2 goals, Jackson made his first sub on 72 minutes when we were 3-1 down.

I hope that the club plough decent money into the team for next season, we are very average at best.

Silk - What's the point in signing Smith from Sutton? They'd only sell him in January anyway. Maybe better to try out one or two of our yoof up front and sell them instead.

We have fallen short like Arsenal did last season. They have licked their wounds and are now challenging for the title again. We have to lick our wounds, try and fix what is missing and challenge again.

3-2 ft. And whilst certain people on here will pick on an individual player the cold hard truth is that we do not have enough goals in the front six. We also do not have a line leading striker who also has goals in his locker. Bugiel is the best but is not a consistent goal scorer. Kelly has not made the jump yet and may have to move to the wide forward role. Tilley and Neufville were available for a reason. Sasu and McLean are raw and have been give fewer chances than others who haven't scored in a long while. Davison is just Davison.

It is clear what is missing from our attack - a front man who has scored 10 this season and wins a lot of aerial duels. And there may be someone even better than him available to us.
