Wonder if we will see a goal keeper and striker come in before the end of Aug.  
More I see of ours, the more I get worried he will cost us more goals and points with his antics and the way he seems to loose it during games.

DC described Covolan as 'top class' after the game yesterday so absolutely no chance we're looking for another GK. Amazing how some have written him off

He also said he had to better!

Yes, is that relevant?

Obviously! Scott Brown wasn't treated badly - like hundreds of players every season, his club...rightly...decided he needed replacing. Simples

There was talk of us signing players that had previously played for DC, the question is, was it his decision or theirs not to? Monty made a sharp exit when he was announced.

But the talk came from people just guessing on here - without any substance...like yourself...not from DC or DF!

I think he was treated badly. If you read the interview he gave to The Sentinel after he left, it sounds like he'd been led to believe he'd be here next season and had the rug pulled from underneath him when the list was released. I think he deserved better.

Your opinion. I didn't think he was - his Manager decided his services were no longer needed - based on observation and diminishing performances...like Pope. Maybe DC had thought about keeping him on for another season, but saw something - especially in the last couple of gamed - to make him decide otherwise? Or maybe Scott misread the situation? Whichever - it happens, hundreds of times. Personally, i feel much sorrier for a teenager who's told he won't be getting a contract, than players who really ought to accept their playing days are coming to an end! As, it seems, Scott Brown's have?

Of course it's an opinion (and Brown's too if you read the interview).

Quote

 

The manager was always talking to me about next season and how different it would be, even going into the Grimsby game he was talking to me about next year and things like that, so it did come as a massive shock, but that’s football.

 

 

Personally, I don't want to keep going over Scott Brown's departure. He's gone, I'm sure everyone wishes him well and hopes that his replacements are an improvement. I imagine Brown may well have been able to extend his playing days but opted for a longer contract which included coaching. I don't particularly like the feel I get from Clarke and the way he dealt with the retained list is part of that.

It did read that way as I remember.

As much as I was a fan of Brown, if Covolan can cut out the silly mistakes when the ball is at his feet I think he’ll be fine.  At the moment he’s reminiscent of a lower league Bruce Grobbelaar.  If he continues in this vein then Stone looks like he could do a decent job if required.

Let's hope he doesn't get involved in match fixing like Bruce allegedly did then.

And yet...you did go over it. Your biggest whinge about the retained list was the use of "deadwood" - clearly an off the cuff remark expressed by a man whose team has just let him down - badly - again - and a term I suspect he wouldn't have used under better circumstances - but, certainly not one he would retract!

I don’t know if we are one of the clubs interested in him or not but Omar Bogle looks like he is possibly on the move from Donny next week with a couple of L2 clubs showing interest.

I hope we are if he's available and affordable. A big powerful lad would give us some presence up front.

I doubt it though. DC gave the impression it would be a loan but things can change quickly in football.

I've never once mentioned deadwood? I've not "whinged" and if you want to have a respectful and reasonable discussion about this you're probably best off not making sneery comments like that.
