Fans of other clubs may be watching their computer screens closely looking for late signings as the closure of the Transfer Window on September 1st approaches, but it appears as if Yeovil Town supporters needn't bother too much.
Despite a squad size that's clearly inadequate to last out until the Window reopens in January, Russell Slade again felt obliged to restate that he is not allowed to bring in any more players either as permanent signings or even as long-term loans without shipping others out on a one-for-one basis. The best he will be allowed is short-term loans to cover injuries.
"We are not in a position to bring anybody in on a long-term loan or on a long-term contract, not unless we get a player out. That's the situation. So we are only able to bring in a month-to-month player as it stands at the minute. That's the financial situation. That's what we have to abide by and will get on with life."
There's not much doubt that many supporters were unhappy with the seemingly endless procession of loans, some of which worked and many of which didn't, that saw Yeovil Town head that particular table by some margin amongst clubs in League One last term. Word from the Board stated at season's end that they didn't see that as a positive way forward and wanted longer-term planning. Fine words, but meaningless if they aren't prepared to fund a different approach.
