Although it’s way too early to be talking about signing players, the better run clubs who have had well thought out strategies in this situation, as well as those who weren’t in any sort of financial difficulty before hand could really be in a better situation in terms of transfers than they would have been prior to this Covid business
With finances and budgets set to be cut, clubs higher up the pyramid won’t be able to retain/keep as many players on their books. There will be even more players without a club than usual which means several will have to drop down a level in order to find a club.
Someone like Maghoma for example, I can’t see him dropping down to League Two, but given that there’s likely to be a dozen or so players of the same ilk available, there’s a good chance he’ll have to find a club in League One. The quality will then inevitably filter down to our level and where 24 teams were fighting over three or four players of
League One quality, they’ll be two or three times that amount. The better run clubs, you would think, will come on top of the bidding war. I just hope we come out of this all for the better
