We are stuck with what we have, for eg. who would buy Haller he cost 45mil and on 70 grand aweek the days of big transfers are gone due to the virus.
If their is a second wave of the virus i think a lot of lower leagues clubs will fold and a big collapse in the football transfer market.
We will have to wait and see if i'm right or wrong What do u think lads.

Bideford, it looks that way at the moment, but when I read BBC Football gossip text each morning, I still see silly fees like £70/ £80m figures still mentioned, but they are mainly foreign players with tags on them from those always in the CL, PSG, Real, Barcelona etc! But us clubs outside the elite in the Premiership, notably us will as you say be stuck with our big earners that haven’t give any clubs an incentive to want to buy them, unless it’s at a massive loss?

Someone may take Haller for £30m, not sure about Anderson. £15m possibly.

I don’t think there will be much player movement this window. The “big” clubs might have some interchanges, but the rest of us - not so much.

I think the team we played for the final matches and the way we played are good enough for comfortable PL survival next season.

I know there’s been loads of chatter about our full backs, an ageing Noble and not enough goals up front, but how bad would you feel if we started the first game of the season with the side we finished this one with?

Markro, I would be more than pleased to start with the team we finished with this season, I said after watching our games, we haven’t missed any of our expensive imports, only trouble is we need Antonio hopefully to keep injury free if possible as he’s been our spearhead up front! Would like to see another with him but already with Premiership / Championship experience to help out! We.

It's all well and good selling players to free up funds but doesn't the club still owe somewhere in the region of £60M from previous transfer dealings?

I'd imagine that figure would have to be drastically reduced before they could even consider bringing in reinforcements.

I know it's not an unusual practice for a club to owe large amounts over transfers (Man Utd £170M for example) but with the board pleading poverty I have a feeling our transfer dealings this summer will be very limited, if any at all.
