I think the appointment of Andy Crosby was the catalyst for the improvement in performance. His post Kidsgrove interview was a much better listen than Clarke's ramblings.

Andy Crosby appears to be a top top signing.

Every manager , good or bad, needs a great number two

Do you have a place for Worrall in the first 11

Absolutely, one of if not the very best in L2 in that position. I was just referring to the very strong creative centre mid options we've now got. We know what Conlon can do, we saw what JT could do in the #10 role, and Pett has achieved a few promotions and play off finishes. Impossible to say anything about Garrity yet but won't be difficult for him to become a more reliable rotation/back up option than Whitehead. 

On the subject of JT, I've heard his downturn in form last season was because he got turned over by COVID19 and was feeling it for a few months. Hopefully a good pre-season and a forward CAM role will see him delivering again.

Agree on the winger, but I also think we want another experienced striker who can start. As for full back it depends on how the manager wants to set up.  If we are using wing backs I think he’ll go with worrall at right wing back anyway. 

We need a striker who WILL challenge Wilson and Rodney. Cannot just rely on a young loan player and another chancer for our two striking options.

Agree but i do see top competition for places in that midfiel three, including Worrall fighting for a place. Nothing erong with that. Taylor has to push Worrall for a place in the team, if he gets it then we will benefit. If Worrall holds his place and performs well then again we benefit.

Second wing back to really push Gibbons may be a top signing too. Smith has shown he can fill in there if needed but real pace and atacking options are needed there aswell as defensive duties.

As i said earlier another strikef to push Wilson and Rodney too.

Really excited for this coming season, cant wait

The Sentinel is reporting that Clarke wants to sign four players - a defender, a winger and two forwards.

Presuming that defender is a right-back then we would have one in place for the start of the season. We'd then have Smith as emergency cover to switch across until hopefully Gibbo is back fit.

I do think it's a little premature to say we're running out of time. By this point last summer we'd yet to sign a single player. Rodney was the first to arrive on the 7th July.

Rob, the Sentinel also reported that a car had been stopped in Meir without insurance. For me it would have been more newsworthy if they’d told us a car had been stopped by the police in Meir that had insurance.

Jamie Proctor, 29 yo striker. Vastly experienced at higher levels but not the most prolific. Target man type.  A reasonable third option.

This forum is going to go absolutely mental when they look at his Wikipedia goals record.

Pocket calculators being scrambled for as we speak.

I imagine the same fans who, earlier today, were extolling the virtues of a striker who was signed as a target man with a poor goal record, won't be happy with this.
