Good points here, my only criticism is I think we’ve let go too many players on the cheap, that does need to change, I would think Cameron and Fosu surely must be worth 3-5 million at least???

I'm not sure we've let too many go cheaply. Roofe, O'Dowda, Johnson and Whyte - all good money.

The hard thing for players like Baptiste and Brannagan leaving to go to the Premier League, is they'll go from playing competitively regularly to not. That's a big adjustment to make

depends what’s more important - money or game time.
but it’s the age old argument. short career and all that. guess the only thing we can do is enjoy and appreciate them whilst they’re here

If anyone came in for them in January, I'd hope the club would at least try to get them back 'on loan' for the rest of the season as part of any deal. We need our best players if we want a tilt at promotion.

Not sure I agree with that.
Eales generally seemed to get good money for players. Marvin Johnson seemed very overpriced to me for example.

Johnson still starts at Championship level though (after a period in the wilderness out of the matchday squads) so they’re probably happy enough with the deal.
