would love us to splash some cash and get the lad from Grimsby.
I saw him twice last season and was very impressed, and this didn't include the game at St James' Park.

We are the grandchildren of apes, not angels
Jack Bonham might be a good call? Just released by Brentford after 42 games on loan at Bristol R.

6ft 4in too, which should tick all of the right boxes in Arizona.

Although, as a "plan b" I 4-1 wouldn't shed any tears if Artur could be persuaded to come back! ;)

Here's our chance to be more attacking. Drop the keeper position and let's play an extra forward up front.

Innovative. Might not catch on though.

Always like Glenn Morris at Crawley but assume he’s under contract....I hear Sam Slocombe is moving back to Lincolnshire so expect him to rock up at Grimsby if they lose Mckeown.

Although Pym is a loss it feels like there’s a lot of capable keepers out there so hopefully we can get someone solid. Plus the second choice needs to be capable of pushing for the number 1 spot to keep up the competition.

Yes - He's been impressive . As Taylor would have known or thought that Pym was on his way , I would like to think he has someone decent lined up. not forgetting we need 2 keepers .

Mitch Walker released by Dover
Charlie Grainger released by Orient

or

Vigouroux, Burge, Garratt would all be good signings I think.

Really hard to get two signings, one being happy with bench/fight for number 1.

Either young already good 'keeper with experienced older back up or older 'keeper with a young, promising back up.

Tough job for MT I think but as mentioned, lots of 'keepers around it seems.

I see from Twitter that Adam Smith, aged 26 has been suggested. Released by Bristol Rovers and was at Leicester with Weale. Won promotion with Northampton in 2015/16.

In the drivers seat..........
As we need two I'd be looking at one from either end of the age range, younger one to learn from his elder and push him for his spot with a view to eventually taking over. For me either Frank Fielding or Sam Slocombe at the top end and maybe Lavercombe from the bottom end. I have a colleague at work who is a Torquay fan and spoke very highly of him when he was down there

If Slocombe is your top end I wouldn't even take a glance at the bottom end !
