Dean's interview.

Post: # 377130Post Roy57 »

Very impressed with Dean' s interview, came over very professional, loved hearing how the change of players attuide in wanting to come to us, little bit disappointed a few questions at the start I was hoping he would of been asked, such as is he finished in the transfer market, especially as many felt we might of been in for a back up to Nicki, and also did Dean feel any players might be leaving, such as Danny Collinge and Kanu, little concerning to hear that Pritch is still having issues with his back, which he was having towards the end of last season, so now Six weeks or there abouts later to hear he is still having issues is a worry. But can see on Dean's face how much and excited he is for new season to start.

Just listened, I Know players do look after themselves better now in the summer but never realised they did programmes via the club in summer.
Concerning about Pritchard back playing up still.

Really good interview that. Sounds like this could be our squad for the season unless any highly rated players are available and within our budget or will go down the loan market. I think pritch may possibly get realased if there's no way of him recovering from his back issue or possibly see out his contract as he has been a good servant to the club.

DB does give off the impression that our primary squad building is done. That's probably a good thing, in that we got everyone in before pre-season, and the squad is pretty large as it stands. I would still be keen on an additional centre-forward though, so hopefully an opportunity in the market arises on that front.

I agree, I'd like to see another striker brought in. Plenty of options out there still. Long season aswell, lots of competitions. By the sounds of it on the defensive front DB dosnt want to loose anyone as he has recruited to help if we are to suffer with defensive injuries again like last season we will have good quality cover, buzzing to see the boys in pre season now!

Great interview however the question of player departures wasn't discussed. 12 incomers, how many more to depart? (on top of those released).

If we can keep Collinge and Kanu for example, we're in for a real treat.

DB is absolutely up for first place. Looking forward to what could and should be a special season. COYB.

Quite early on, DB said that he had finished "phase 2" of recruitment (which is signing players) and is now on "phase 3", which is looking at who may be available on loan should anything happen to any of the current squad gets injured. Doesn't really feel a question on recruitment was needed after that.

Doesn't seem ideal that the strength and conditioning coach does join for a few more weeks, but hopefully whoever it is has been able to have some kind of input into what is going on at the moment.

I thought it was a very good interview. Obviously he's not going to enter into speculative discussions re any individuals but apart from that he was very open and relaxed.

Hope Pritch's back recovers soon.

There's a distinct air of confidence throughout that interview which I find reassuring. But being favourites we will have the pressure from the first game, unlike our previous promotion winning campaign when we thumped Chester on the opening day to the surprise of many. The mentality of the players will play a big part in our success this season, maybe more so than their footballing abilities
