Transfer rumours, targets & new signings


Doha

Recommended Posts

Cracking signing, proper heartbreaker for Stevenage, smaller player but one who won't back down from a challenge, etc. 

That's the replacement for Manny in CM then, and can play deeper, so it's less pressure on a 2nd DM (which can now be a player to develop). If Benning signing is true, that leaves us just a striker (and possibly RB) short of the main squad, with a couple of youths to add for cover/development.

Midfield two of Pett/Walker and Conlon (with Garrity and Taylor as cover), midfield three of Pett/Garrity    Pett/Walker    Conlon.

Crikey.

Taylor has got to hit the ground running or his Vale career could be over before it starts. 

Barely featured under Clarke, huge season for him.

I think if anything this squad is going to be highly competitive. All of them will need to be on top form else they will be out. Can only be a good thing.

Pett and Conlon as a two is as good as you will get in this league. Add The Taylor of old to that and we have to be right up there. Maybe garrity is more of a development player? Guess we will play a 3 with Walker sitting behind colon and pett? Taylor and garrity as back up / development players

Totally agree.

In the recent past we have had no options, for example when Joyce missed we were snookered.

This squad is shaping nicely.

Only a week ago people were worried it was all going pear shaped. 

Really good business we are doing.

Nice summary, BA - but I doubt we will be signing any other centre backs!

Have the squad numbers been confirmed other than Wilson's? As it looks like they are wearing them on their training gear and Conlon and Smith are wearing their numbers from last year. Legge is in 25 looks like Garrity has 20.

My concern is that Legge can't play in a two without waterwings and has to play in a three and is 36 this season.....Martin/Johnson/Jones/Benning even young Lennon are all left footed left side defenders and the only right footed defenders then are Gibbons and Smith and so perhaps not only a right back but a right sided centre back is needed to balance the squad......can still sign a left winger and two good strikers.

🤔 And the curly haired one on the far left. Doesn't seem tall enough to be Wilson.

We need a right back and left back not another CB. 4 centre backs is enough IMO
