Does every signing have to be a marquee signing, or can we sign squad players with a bit of potential?
There's nothing wrong with the latter but we have a fairly sizeable squad of players signed up already so would expect the focus to be on signing a small number of key players in the positions where we are obviously lacking.

That’s also what KMT said at the end of the season. We’ve already got a large squad with lots of kids with high potential, we need to sign a small number of quality players - I’m paraphrasing but that’s what he said.

Doesn’t fit the “higher-level knowhow” comment made by Matt Taylor
By my calculations he’s played over 50 League One games for Accrington and a handful more for Crewe.
Maybe not a massive amount of higher level know how but a lot more than most of our current players have.

I havent said that but that's what the Manager intimated recruitment this year would be based on. Notwithstanding that I think Oz would improve after a full pre-season and with our coaching

I think he gives us a physical presence, but if we bring one of our marquee players that has that presence he won't be needed, if we bring in a different type of striker than he may be. Horses for courses, but first we need to see who our marquee striker is, because we clearly need one to play with, or without him if he's injured.

So doubt we'll rush into sign him until we know.
