That's it then, we have 41 points so wont be going down based on what happens on the football pitch and today is the deadline for points deductions in the event of a club going into administration. So, what ever happens to BG and his holding companies, any points deduction will be carried over to next season. Break open the champagne!
So, the pressure is off for now. Hopefully there is a deal being put together to buy us and all this talk of further legal action over Tevez will come to nothing. Dare we start to think about signing new players?
The shallow nature of the squad is the big worry at the moment. Do we own Ilunga? If not, we haven't got a left back. Do we even want Di Michele? I would say thanks but Arrivederci personally. Tristan surely must be packing his bags already. What about Kovac? I like the look of him but not in a midfield pairing with Parker, unless Collison and Behrami are going to be given more license to range forward. From what he says, we are not keen on stumping up the fee to buy him. Lopez? He looks as if he has shed a stone since the Watford game (his only start) but is he any cop? Zola seems to see him as an absolutely last resort. What happens with Bowyer, Downpipe and Quashi? Do they return in the summer? And then there is Luis Rigor Mortis, what is to be done with him? And Faubert's arse of course!
To compete next season we need a new right back, an alternative left back (assuming Ilunga is still ours) and a goal scoring striker; and possibly a creative, goal scoring midfielder. Suggestions anybody?
