Transfer Rumours Pre-Season


Recommended Posts

The Bolton forum is a decent read and they do some deep research into option.

As well the the obvious names of Maynard, Palmer and Theo Robinson they have also identifies these 2.

OLI HAWKINS
Released by Pompey, age 28 (DOB 8.4.92), 6ft5 striker/centre-back, played 77 times in third tier. Scored winning goal in 2019 EFL Trophy final shootout but in truth not exactly goalstrewn – although he bagged 18 in 38 fifth-tier games for Dag & Red in 2016/17.

DOMINIC SAMUEL
6ft2 striker released by Blackburn, so he's possibly just up the road. A prolific scorer in Reading's youth ranks, he scored 6 in 13 on loan to third-tier Cov in 2014/15, then another 7 (plus 4 assists) in 25 on loan at third-tier Gillingham in 2015/16; moved to Blackburn in summer 2017 and scored 4 in his first 6 starts, but then ruptured his ACL. Came back last season without unduly bothering the scorers, but maybe-just-maybe there's a player there.

Nothing wrong with getting just a little carried away at the moment,  as long as we all remember that it's The Vale we're talking about. But then again this is the New Vale and it feels amazing,  even

I honestly despair with some Vale fans... Is it bred into our DNA that we have to seek out negativity???? As I'm typing this, we've have just launched the nicest football strip I can remember, desig

Hawkins rumoured to have had several lesgue one offers.

Samuel seems like another Anton Forrester with his injuries. ACL injuries are still potentially career ending.

I was thinking the other day, it will be hard to keep everyone happy if we have 4 strikers and they stay injury free. I guess Pope will be banned for the first part and Rodney needs a few months to settle in, but after that. I wonder if Askey will ever try 3-5-2? We seem to have the players with attacking full-backs and Crookes as LCH. Although that would mean dropping our wide men. 

I think JA knows the striker and midfielder are important signings if we want to have a serious go at the playoffs or beyond, which is why he is prepared to be patient.

Christian Dennis may be come available!!!!

County have an option but they may not exercise it now. I wondered if Askey was holding some hope on this one.

With regards to the keeper situation one of the lads who was on trial last summer has signed for Peterborough .

Dan Gyollai, I liked the sound of him last year. 

Not sure if we ever had a chance as he went to Wigan to be their back up so I assume he would have gotten paid more there.

Didn’t he play in goal when we played Stoke a couple of years ago?

Anyone taking a camera down to the Bycars training pitches for this years installment of "Spot the Trialist"?

I'd clean forgot about football returning!

There always seem to be some people that turn up for the start of pre-season, even to just watch players running around Forest Park lake! 🥴
