    Well you know itís not an unreasonable fear.
    Of course I hope this squad can work , and itís possible. Thing we risk ignoring though is that there are a LOT of unproven and very young players and IF they canít manage then thereís no Plan B. We canít buy anyone till January and itís not as if weíve taken the precaution of hanging on to players like Sol and Junior Hoilett etc who could have stepped in to halt any meltdown.

    This is like a long road trip without a spare tyre.

    Judging from responses so far, no-one else has such a fear.

    That's a shame it's bullshit: I was getting excited about the prospect of Tan selling up.

    Who are the “very young” players you expect to be in the starting line up next week? It looks like Bagan will be, but who else? Giles is only twenty, but played a season in the Championship last year. After years of giving young players no chance at all, City have become like nearly every other club in that they have a core of four or five young pros who might see some first team action if we’re nit by injuries, illness and/or suspensions.

    he didn't have far more impact, he's about the same for goal involvements, and Wilson will probably do it again this season whereas Tomlin is good once in a blue moon.
    Tomlin is a big downgrade from Wilson

    According to that the deal included ALL the football clubs he owned. Now it SEEMED like a credible financial newspaper, but of course youíre right it might have been the Malay version of the Sun.
    In other words, you made it up.

    Heís not daft, so whatís happening here ?

    Is he perhaps balancing the books as much as possible and minimising further investment because heís already agreed a deal with someone. I know that a big deal on this fell over a little while back, so maybe this explains recent developments?

    If that happens there's a very good chance ball retention and playing style will improve.

    I havent seen anything close to as stupid as suggesting us getting hammered 5 nil every week is a realistic prospect.

    I tend to agree, but I thought yesterday was an improvement when it came to keeping the ball and we played fewer long balls.

    How do you know there was a big deal recently that fell through? Seriously, how do you know that?
    He's one if the gullible few who believes anything the club basher says/posts

    I take no pleasure whatever in recalling the evening of the Emiliano Sala tragedy.
    I noticed a French newspaper report of a missing plane en route from Nantes to Wales. Unusual route and knowing that the poor young man was travelling overnight I followed up and was reluctantly convinced VERY early what had happened and to whom.

    I posted it sometime between 10pm and midnight on *****’ forum and if it still exists you can probably see the disbelieving and quite nasty tirade I received, which went on for about 24 hours until the dreadful truth emerged.

    Point being not that I’m claiming some brilliant insight but that it’s very possible for an apparently unlikely truth to be picked up on correctly. Now I don’t either, for one moment, claim that my speculation on this matter is correct, but I thought Taunton , of all people, would know that a majority of opinion on a factual matter is no indication whatsoever that they have it right.
