Transfer rumours, targets & new signings


Doha

Recommended Posts

While the signings are fast and furious it would be good to get the three transfer listed players offloaded asap.....if Legge didn't have that contract extension clause at age 36 this season would Legge be retained and apart from a fringe squad player and emergency cover cannot see Legge playing many games.

Another point is while Rodney and Wilson must be first choice and Nevitt might be worth a gamble if still only 21 but if Nevitt is 25 not so much so the other talked about possible signings upfront have been Gordon with some seeming certainty amongst some and Oates......leaves a certain feeling of could do better and while there has been much talk of defenders and midfielders and the need for a couple of good keepers is there any rumours or possible targets amongst released out of contract league strikers or academy prospects or even non-league hotshots.

Is this the first time we've had 2 players with the same name who play/played in the same position?😁

Bob Pursell were uncle and nephew.

We have had multiples of: Fred Jones, Dan Jones, George Lawton, Jimmy McLean, Jack smith, James Smith, John Smith, Harry Davies and Ben Davies.

Better than Fitzpatrick and Crooks? A big yes. More reliable than Monty? Another big yes. That'll do for me. Another good signing for a team that's already looking strong and powerful weeks and weeks before a ball will be kicked, and with more to follow.

 

GK:

RB: Gibbons

CB: Martin

CB: Smith

LB: Jones

RW: Worrall

CM: Walker

CM: Conlon

LW: Amoo (for now)

CF: Wilson

CF: Rodney

Really no idea about Jones.Can't say I remember him playing against us for Harrogate but I trust the transfer process we are going through.

I expect another signing now tomorrow which I reckon will be either the no.1 GK or ST.I'm hoping for a statement ST. Someone with a physical presence to be a focal point as Rodders and Wilson will not give us that.We need something different for plan b/ & c/.

I'm praying rumours about Hannant are untrue... works hard but his control is crap and can't pass water unless he has mircacurously improved.

I think its unlikely we play 3 CB's as a preferred system. I predict we go back to 4 and then we go from there.DC has to find a system which gets Wozza higher up the pitch. Stats wise and using your eyes, he's one of if not the best creative wide player in this league.

Is there any talk of widening the pitch? I just think that it's an aspect of Vale park that we don't make good use of. As I recall it always used to seem a lot wider and maybe we could adjust the system of play to intimidate the opposition. With Worrall down one side and maybe Hurst down the other. We could take advantage of this space and the opposition would not be used to the expanse, as most grounds in league 2 are tight and compact. It may on the other hand place a limit on a long throw specialist such as Dan Jones.

I'd hoped we'd be in for Dan Scarr this summer but he's on his way to Plymouth from Walsall.

Have to say though, I'm happy with Aaron Martin instead!

Can’t believe that. He’s not that good surely by all accounts. Like you say I would genuinely take Martin before him.

Some <ovf censored> being talked on here which I appreciate and understand why people do it but calm down people. It’ll all work out ok. 

Hey 10+ positive posts and circa 50 accurate posts is pretty good for a OVF 1800 extender.

It’ll be nice to have a team where if someone can’t play for whatever reason their position isn’t automatically <ovf censored> with a lottery machine square peg shoved in.
