Replanting The Roots at Fulham: What should the transfer strategy be?

New, comments

Fulham have tried a lot in the past few windows, very little of it has worked. The squad needs an overhaul. Is it time to start with the base and build from the ground up?

With a summer of rebuilding work surely ahead and the shackle of a transfer embargo no longer around our neck.

Are we about to disembark this merry go round of turmoil we have found ourselves on of recent years?

A team of rich history and recent Premier League pedigree such as Fulham leaves us as fans expecting and demanding more.

Now with a charismatic and successful manager such as Slaviša Jokanović at the helm, there finally seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel.

But for even the most eternal optimistic of fans among us know that it is no easy task and without something remarkable surely this won't happen over night.

Firstly we need to address the main concern of rearranging personnel.

As aforementioned with the transfer embargo no longer on the club, the fringe players brought in to supply cover for the long, demanding Championship season need to be offloaded to supply funds for Jokanović to bring in the right men to fulfill his plans and reestablish the core of the team.

As a club we are no longer in need of vast cover in all area's of the field but a solid starting XI, that picks itself most weeks with a strong bench to supply healthy competition. Very similar to the successful spell we had around our Europa League final run under Roy Hodgson.

Is it time we donned the quality over quantity philosophy?

With the new season approaching and pre season training shortly around the corner a high sense of optimism and anticipation surrounds the club and it's fans.

Will we reach the promised lands of the Premier League this season or will the era of Jokanović be that of a gradual rebuilding scheme?

I'm interested to know your opinion in the comments and poll below.

This has been my first post on SB Nation, so if you have enjoyed this post or have any constructive criticism for myself I'd appreciate your input in the comments down below.

Will we see an instant impact in Jokanović's first full season in charge?
