Maybe we should look at the postitives for a change.
We have a newish manager who wants to prove himself by playing attacking football.
We have a chairman which keeps the club secure in the black and a willingness to keep our best players (which is why we still have Gera, at the time he looked worth keeping).
We have some highly coveted players who we can sell if needed.
We have some really good young players who can give us a core to go on from here.
We are currently in the playoffs and have to win 2 games to ensure it. Theres still a chance we will be in the Prem next season and if so I think there has to be a major squad shake up. I think we are more likely to sell if we go up because the cash will be there otherwise it will be the same story as last year.
I'd like to see Gera, Koumas, Ellington, Hartson and Peace out but will it ever happen?
Funny how everyones favourite most committed players are in defence yet we leak goals left right and centre.
I agree with you on most points,that makes a change you might say!,except for the Gera and Koumas bit I'd like to see both stay,but I reckon Gera would be better in the middle...where he plays outstandingly for Hungary,how Mowbray thinks he's a winger I don't know?
On the defence bit I think our best back four was earlier in the season when Davies was out injured and the back four was : Albrechtsen,McShane,Perry & Robinson...we hardly conceded a goal when they were together.....but then Davies recovered and it's never been the same since!

The only reason I say about Koumas going is that he seems inconsistant and he would fetch a good price on sale being player of the year and Gera because he has been out of form and I'd like to see an out and out winger on the team as we are flooded with central midfielders. A C.Ronaldo style player who can cross all day every day would be great and give something for Phillips or even Hartson to get his head on.
Carter or Gera to go as they (Carter in particular) seem to think in straight lines, for instance Koren will switch play with long but accurate passes.
I think Albrechtsen is a great player ploughing up and down the wing but can be a little lax on the defending part of his job.
