Weve signed that lad from hartlepool but waiting until there season finishes to announce

Rumours that Wrexham are going to take their manager too.

They are currently winning 1-0 in the final but could look very different next year if they get the job done.

I think he signed weeks ago

Even more better he didn’t pick an injury up in the play offs games then. Wouldn’t have been much good if he torn an hamstring and was out for two months. Risky business when signing players who are still playing in competitive games for their club. Probably be announced this week then. Be decent back up he will.

You couldn't blame Wrexham wanting to poach Challinor - his managerial record is outstanding with a win ratio of 53%. It's all non-league I know but taking Hartlepool back into the EFL against the likes of the big spending clubs in the National is some achievement. Let's hope Johnson, their big centre back, is of similar winning mentality - if we do sign him, that is.

Roll on next week!

Challinor made him captain for a game at 24 in his first season at the club. Speaks well of his attitude and leadership. Bodes well.

Weird how ex players that you wouldn’t expect to become managers become decent managers. Challinor was mainly known for being Tranmere’s long throw in man.

Johnson (24) 6'2" CB/LCB/LB the Hartlepool captain.....so far the first choice back back five looks strong

Gibbons/Smith/Martin/Johnson/Jones

However apart form old man Legge further reinforcements and cover is needed and hopefully Gibbons is over that reocuring injury from last season.

Why are you so certain it’s a back 5? We have signed a CDM as well who will presumably start. I’d be surprised if we line up with a back 5 and a CDM. If Johnson signs we won’t sign another CB 4 is enough.

I certainly wouldn’t rule out a back 5 but it was pretty clear DC went with that as a temporary fix to stop teams exploiting us down the channels last season.

I would guess at maybe some form of diamond formation as don’t think the back five gets the best out of Worrall but might be proven completely wrong there.
