Defenders Scott Dann (Birmingham) and Daniel Fox (Celtic) and striker Robbie Simpson (Huddersfield) have all been sold,

Have you made enough signings for the new season? Are they the right signings?

Very low given the player sales described above.

A season of struggle lies ahead. City look short of players and short of goals.
