Out of that list, I'd be wanting to keep Cork and JBG
I'd add Long to that list. Cheap 4th choice cb is fine. Right back is a big area for improvement, as is right side of midfield.

Re: Out of contract players

Surely if MG can't sell after trying for 2 years he will have no choice but to return to how we have done things previously. He has clearly been avoiding forking out any significant money on incoming transfers with the aim of maximising his income from selling the Club. If he can't do that he has to...
