Which doesn’t seem to be happening in terms of Page and Sweeney. Obviously, perhaps MT has told Page he needs him to confirm his decision by this Friday but, by the look of it, things are just dragging on and on. This will surely be impacting MTs potential recruitment of a replacement.
Agreed and there’s plenty of higher paid players in L1. The likes of McGeady will be on big big money. Ipswich reportedly paying new signing Rakheem Harper over £10k per week! Peterborough would’ve paid very handsome wages to their big hitters too. Lots of money in these lower leagues now. Good...
Maybe wrong on this but isn’t he a left sided player? If so we’ve got plenty there already. If he’s a right winger then maybe but nowt will happen with him until the playoffs are finished in about 3 months!
Not really how I read it. He says by the end of June we’ll know what we’re working with, which implies more players will have joined by then. Plus he says the younger/ squad level signings will sign sooner than the ones who are “key players”.
Basically, as you’d expect, the better players will...
True but our squad is very very light, so we definitely need 8 or 9 minimum. As we know, it’s a long season and we can’t afford to have a weak bench again. That said, if the likes of Kite, Diabate and Iseguan can step up then I’m all for it!
So making the assumption that Bowman is off and Page could well follow him, by my count, we need 11 more signings:
1 GK, 2 CBs, 2 LBs, 2 CMs, 1 winger and 3 Strikers!!
Training starts in 2 weeks’ time so you’d hope that at least 5 will be signed on by then!
Looks like it’s pretty imminent. He’s done well for us and has had some harsh treatment at times but I’d put him down as a decent signing all in all.
So, we will probably need 3 strikers this window now! Hopefully at least one will be on board soon!
I do wonder if our offer was maybe slightly poorer than his current deal? Or maybe he still wasn’t being guaranteed 1st team action?
At this level, if a player can get an extra £500 per week elsewhere, it’s a no-brainer for him to move on. And in all honesty, perhaps a move is best for both...
FFS we know that we have offered contracts to half a dozen players and I’m sure some of those will sign. Plus we will also be speaking to other players too in the coming couple of weeks.
All will be good and by the end of the month, I reckon the squad will look a lot healthier.
