It's not that hard. 

Instead of signing Greg Leigh and giving him a couple of grand a week or whatever just put that money into the first eleven pot and then you have a couple of grand extra to offer a potential first team player signing . Same with the likes of Curtis Main, Ojo etc.  The money saved on squad filler can be put to better use without increasing the overall wage budget. 

I think there will always be a need for squad fillers to some extent. But I am willing to accept your argument and bow down due to the example you have just given in Greg Leigh. Curtis too actually.

Ojo, I think, we hoped would be good enough for the first team. That will happen, can't always get it right. He was our Djemba Djemba.

Aye that's fair enough. 

We won't always get it right but re routing unnecessary squad filler or loan fee budget to first team wages will help shift the balance over time. 

I'm the same with loan players.  We should only bring in a loan player to fill a temporary gap in the first team rather than someone like Tate or Vyner to sit on the bench.

Running with a tight (16 man) squad, you run the risk of injuries hampering your season but that’s the knife edge, it’s fine as long as you have a decent qty of youth players that can come in and assist.

The alternative is the possibility of squad fillers like Main, Vyner, Leigh, O’Connor, Maynard etc potentially playing EVERY game.

That's the nub though isn't it?  How many of those squad filler types that you mention have done a better job than a youth player could have done? 

Not many.

Same rules should apply to loan signings as it does permanent - only consider it if they are going to improve the first 11. 

The likes of Lowe, Hector, Maddison and Christie (although not from them) and no filler shite like Monakana, Tait etc

Soon as someone who is remotely as big as they act and actually bet me properly , no more proof coming 

I'll bet you £20, you don't have a season ticket for next season. Get proof posted and I'll get the money wired to you.

 

You have 24 hours to post the proof.

£20 won't cover Millermongs cunning ruse to get another poster to pay for his season ticket 😄

Nope, doubt he had any in the first place.

He’s just a contrarian bullshitter

You cannot say that for certain.......we never got to see youth players get the chance.

Bad management? Possibly

But also possibly because they were even shiter than the squad fillers that were getting game time ahead of them.

"Squad fillers" are an inevitable part of any team's overall strategy. The arse cheeks have them.......sevco in such names as Balogun, Zungu and Greg fucking Stewart (not to mention the 4 or 5 they've punted out on loan to various corners of the UK). Celtic in guys like Ralston, Duffy (hahahaha), Bitton and Ajeti. It's just their squad fillers cost a shitload more than ours do. But their supporters think of them as equally as shite as we do ours.

We either continue the same 'squad filler' strategy from now til the end of time and nothing really changes or we try and do something different, more disruptive, to see if it changes things for us. 

Might be the same end result but at least our young players will get more experience.

I think our level of shite signings has exaggerated all this.

Of course some players are squad players e.g. the second and third goalkeeper or the third and fourth strikers. 

If you don't have a youth player good enough then it's correct to make signings in these examples. 

It's then a secondary question of why don't you have a youth player good enough to be the fourth choice striker.

I certainly don't buy the argument of some on here to say 'i dont give a fuck who the fourth choice striker is just make it dangana'.

You had your opportunity, you came back with a ridiculous counter bet and now you're backtracking when you've been exposed.

But fuck it, prove you bought the season ticket for next year when you implied you did and I'll send you £20. 

You use to be good value back in the day, but I am starting to think you have weak / small shoulders.

I'll try and explain it better. 

Squad players should be replaced first team players on the way down/out or youngsters coming through rather than players specifically brought in to fulfil that purpose.

It should automatically discount it when you enter your ID number and pick up the fact you have a/many DNA accounts.

You’ve identified exactly where you will be seated when we eventually return 

with the upset and animosity you have generated in this forum I think that’s a “ schoolboy error” surely
