Iron Curtain

Players in and Out

Recommended Posts

Brisley as experienced cover at centre back....has played a lot of games and has Championship experience and still 29.So it is Legge/Smith/Kennedy/Brisley which is a very decent set of centre backs for this level.

The Forest lad on loan is a highly rated midfielder who can also play left back so perhaps Cambell-Gordon can go out on loan.

Archer is 6 foot 3 and very quick and plays down the centre or wide has goals in his game and had a lot of clubs after him when Bury payed a fee.

So the centre back we needed and a step up from Rawlinson...a defensive midfielder who can play left back which probably means

Cambell-Gordon can go out on loan and get games.......and Askey wanted a quick striker who can run in behind and Archer on a free is perhaps a gift horse and good business.

So two permanent signings in the two positions Askey was after an experienced upgrade and a quick gift horse plus a loan to cover left back/defensive midfield....still could be interest in Will Patching as well.....all in all if the signings all come off a good close of business Mr Askey.

When did we last have a proper left back playing regularly? Was it Tyler Denton? Why do we seem to make do with using converted players there?

So if all these signings come off and this allows Cambell-Gordon to go out on loan to get games like the other two first year professional lads...not to forget Trickett-Smith and Hurst are out on loan till January.....then it looks like a squad of 24 players.

GK Brown/Maddison

LB Gibbons/Evans

CB Legge/Smith/Kennedy/Brisley

LB Crookes/Taylor

MF Oyeleke/Joyce/Conlon/Lloyd/Burgess/Patching

WF Worral/Amoo/Montano/Browne

ST Pope/Cullen/Bennett/Archer

SFBT    "Looking like a squad" which is really the point that stands out it is almost as if the managers knows what he is doing instead of a random collection of 36 players many signed by Smurf it is a small first team squad where all can get games and training and a spirit of togetherness goes a long way as does being fit and organised in a high pressing 4/3/3....from mayhem to method thankyou Mr Askey and our new owners.

We've got 4 wingers (Browne, Amoo, Montano, Worrall) plus Lloyd, Campbell-Gordon and probably Archer who can also play there. Any 2 of Montano, Worrall and Amoo Are as good a pair of wingers as any team in this league. Not sure we need more in those positions. 

Brisley is genuine competition for Smith and Legge. Solid enough with the aerial stuff, not a footballing centrehalf but a defender.

I've no idea about Archer. Caused us problems in the friendly. Ryan Lowe seems a decent judge of players and paid a fee for him 12 months ago. Other clubs were also in for him at the time.

Taylor is someone we've chased for a while, so not just a deadline day need for bums on seats. Forest see him as a first team prospect in 12 months. I know nothing about him but it's not a panic signing.

Gut reaction is Brisley and Taylor are genuinely in contention. Archer probably 4th choice as things stand.

When Manny is injured, Askey seems to drop Worrall back there to cover.

Montano is extremely injury prone.

Browne hasn't played a game yet.

Amoo is our only threat. Teams will double up on him and nullify our only threat.

We need more/better wingers or it's another 40 goal season again for us. Pope/Bennett/Cullen will score goals with the right service. It's the service to them we're lacking.

That’s what happens when you haven’t got much money to play with budget wise so you have to get players who can slot into a few positions. Which generally means they aren’t that good or comfortable in one role.

specialist left back is what is needed along with another good midfield man.

ill take 16th now. Suppose that would be progress.

Well I’m sure you don’t want us increasing the budget , spending what we don’t have

tisdeano  "versatility is the way"

Worral has played very well in a midfield three as well as a wide forward and there are a number of Askey signings who can play multiple positions.....

Evans RB/LB/DM

Kennedy CB/RB

Crookes LB/CB

Taylor MF/LB

Lloyd MF/LB/LW

Worrall MF/RW

Amoo LW/RW

Montano LW/LB

Bennett CF/LW

Archer CF/RW

Always thought it was the sign of a good footballer or football intelligence the ability to play in more than one position and cope with changes of system or formation.

I think Pope could play Centre Half

Shaun Brisley confirmed on a one year deal

Another Macc Town reject? He did move to Peterborough for 300k from Macc and played in the Championship with them, so he might have something about him.

DO we only sign players that have a Macc connection? We'll be getting Danny Whittaker back next week.

Think it's a bit of a stretch to call him a reject. They flogged him to Peterborough when they were in the championship, and that was about 6 years ago

Shaun Brisley has played in the Championship and is a vastly experienced centre back six foot two still 29 and has to be considered as an upgrade on Rawlinson....needed another centre back and experience with a young back four so box ticked.

I'm not sure Notts see him as an upgrade, considering they binned him and replaced him with Rawlinson. Still we will see

I’d probably prefer it if he hadn’t signed the likes of Kennedy burgess and the other full back who won’t ever see 90 minutes to be fair. And signed perhaps one quality player out the three who could play and make a difference. There’s no danger carol overspending.

Realise he has a Mac connection but give the guy a chance lets see him play , happy to do that before judging him. Just a point but are we talking about the same Mac who are currently 4th in our division. I "ll get my coat.
