I remember getting berated early on for saying I hoped we'd sign better players - this is 100% what I was talking about. What a great signing!

No, you didn't. You got battered for saying the signings we had made weren't good enough and for being excessively negative for no reason.

I maintain my position. I said we needed to sign better and we have. Positivity is great, I love positive psychology, but positivity shouldn't be replaced with delusion or false hope.

"Overall, we've signed a bunch of players who have been OK at below Conference level. Osborne may be the most experienced at the level, and hopefully is the only one who can make the starting line up from the off. If these are the cream of what we sign, we could be in for a long and disappointing season again."

The jury is still out on Revell being our manager, but the guy deserves a chance and time to prove himself as the manager to take this club forward.

The signings he has made so far do seem to be very promising and he's building the team up nicely and rather quickly and I expect maybe another 9 players to come in which if I'm right I believe would give us a 21 man squad,please correct this if I'm wrong.

Credit to Revell for signing players that will actually want to play for the shirt and not rush into shit panic buying's, which Dino did last summer before the season started and proved to be a waste of money on crap players.

I actually do hope this upcoming season is such a different era compared to last season which was rather disappointing and by far the worse season I've experienced in my 25 years as a Boro fan.

What positions do we need cover in? In my opinion we definitely need 2 wingers, a left and right winger, because in my opinion the last time we had a very good left winger was when we had Luke Freeman.

We retained eight (in discussions with two others) and have signed nine.

Wallace wants a squad of 20. So that is only three more, maybe a couple others if we are thinking we may loan a couple out.

Yeah, I'm expecting some loans out. Can't imagine we're intending on relying on Smyth, Ionnton and Fielding as backups.

Arthur will probably stay in the squad IMO, can cover defence and midfield. Won't get much game time.

If he is ever going to have a breakthrough season it is probably this one, particularly if we end up in the Conference.
The roasting he took on this website last season was shameful. After all, he doesn't pick the team.

He doesn’t pick the team so can’t be roasted for a shit performance?

It was ongoing rather than a single roasting as I recall. He was clearly struggling and needed a break.
There were plenty more deserving 'couldn't give a toss' recipients.

He did get singled out as shit, which he patently isn't. I thought it was a little harsh but he's in a man's world now and can expect a hard time when things aren't going well on the pitch.

Altho' granted he lost his confidence and was a shadow of the player that first broke through.

Hopefully he has toughened up both physically and mentally as a result of the tough time last season.

There is a good hard-working player in there.

Pretty much how I remember it too. There’s potential there for sure, to my mind the main issue was he wasn’t getting stuck in enough. Fix that and there’s a player in there.

I make it seven “senior” players retained. Carter, Cuthbert, Fielding, Iontton, List, TVC and Wildin. I think we can expect to see Fielding shipped out. I believe Fernandez, Smith and Smyth are classed as youth players still, so not counting them in the squad of 20 that has been suggested.

I would be very (pleasantly) surprised to see Farman and Newton sign new deals. So I think realistically it’s a squad of 15 adding in the new signings (and writing off Fielding). That is then supplemented by our academy prospects.

To come in I’d expect another keeper, we could still be a little short at full back (back up for Coker) and we need some width too.
