We almost signed Lee Burge but lost out to Northampton for a few hundred quid a week , we were paying bugger all of cams wages and won’t pay much of the new keepers wages , I don’t know why but we’re acting as if we’re skint , why not sign a proper experienced keeper and let Lee learn his trade elsewhere

I’ll be even more worried if it’s the Heavitree United keeper. He's played at a good level
I think Brown could do a job in league 1. Very experienced and has played at that level. I'm not saying we don't need a Dawson type replacement but in the interim he would do ok. Our defence is much stronger now as we have Stubbs from the start, not waiting until Christmas when he shook off his injury.

Lee Burge - another one for whom location may have been relevant. Prior to his move to Sunderland he'd been at Coventry for 9 years, just up the road from Northampton (indeed where part of that time Coventry played home games).

Only just catching up on the weekends news, or lack of, and the fact we missed out on 2 loan signings that MT thought were in the bag. Do we have any idea who these 2 might have been?

After the euphoria of last seasons promotion, the lack of signings and the realisation that at L1 level we can't really compete financially, it's all feeling a bit depressive.

I'm still confident of a safe mid table season this time around, but in the medium term we'll find ourselves back in L2 without external investment. It's very frustrating.
