Recruiting 7-8 decent money players that are better than the 7-8 decent money players we've let go should not be too tricky.

Upgrading on Lancashire, Robertson, Richards, Taylor, Vigs should be liking shotting fish in a barrel.

Looks easy enough on paper, but isn't.

Remember when Flitcroft had to do the rapid rebuild, he said that for every position he'd be talking to around 5 players, because you might get 1 to sign.  Last season showed the sort of thing... Brown offered to Moore and McGivern.... Moore preferred bench sitting at Franchise... McGivern preferred a return to Linfield.   We got LMc, who for obvious reasons was happy enough to get any gig, and then loaned in Nelson, as he couldn't find a centre half, for a permanent deal.

So it's likely that assuming Conroy doesn't sign, Wellens will be speaking to at least 10 centre halves... of whom 2 might fancy it.  Ideally you'd want the 2 to be top of the list, but it may be you end up with your last picks....
