Transfer rumours, targets & new signings

Can he score 15-20 goals ? Unbelievable reading this thread that we’ve signed yet another left back given we’ve lost a 36 year old centre half . This left back is due to be back up for Jones, (player of the season so far I reckon) who is per this thread , the best left back since sliced bread and Benning (see the comment regarding Jones) and is himself the best since sliced bread.

Makes sense I reckon. Can then get Dan Jones to move inside as first choice LCB and then Amos can cover for Benning. Means we’ve got another who is comfortable with the ball in that back three.

Just those words alone, move Jones and Amos can cover for Benning. People would have laughed if anyone had mentioned those players this time last year.

It’s not just the players traditional or favourite roles we have covered now, it’s flexible formations and options in every conceivable formation with players not only of good quality but also realistic threats on the bench to frighten under-performers. This is what a strong and fancied squad looks like. This is what a promotion season is built on.

How big is our squad now? It must be a very similar size to last season.

6 less this year if we consider Burgess and Whitehead out of the squad

The replacements are:

Covolan - Brown

Stone - Visser

Cass - Mills

Martin - Brisley

Johnson - Crookes

Jones - Fitzpatrick

Benning - Monty

Amos - RCG

Walker - Joyce

Pett - Oyeleke

Garrity - Trickett Smith

Politic - McKirdy

Proctor - Pope

Wilson - Guthrie

Lloyd - Swan

 

Not replaced:

Scott, Burgess, Whitehead, Cullen, Olagunju, Theo

 

Different people will have different opinions on which team has the better players this year vs last. But Im giving it a clear clear win for this years squad in terms of who I would rather have.

Jones moves to centre half... so we have benning and Amos. Not sure what your point is?

The deadwood comment was just the tip of the iceberg. 

So - you're clearly not one of those "in the know" else you wouldn't keep posting the crap you do? So I'm guessing that latest comment is based on hearsay?...or a very small iceberg?

I am just venturing my opinion within the rules of the message board. I am not trying to wind anyone up, I suspect that the reason that some people get so upset is that they are wondering if I have a point. I am trying to keep away from ovf because I get fed up of the abuse. 

I suspect if you ran a poll now, most people would think you were pointless? And you bring the abuse on yourself by winding-up those people you're trying not to wind up...allegedly!

You can’t come onto this forum and make sweeping statements like that.  FFS man, what sort of sliced bread?  You haven’t even specified thick or thin you buffoon. 🤦‍♂️

Regarding our squad - for years we've been asking for quality not quantity. For years, some managers have promised that yet we constantly ended up with quantity not quality. I'm happy to see quality, now, especially in quantity. Having cover for most positions and to accommodate DCs fluid formations is something we haven't had for a long time!

24.  A couple of seasons ago it was around 35!

And if we put all 35 on the pitch together we wouldn’t have won.

It’s nice to have a planned approach, not just sign players vaguely in the right positions and consider formations as we go along with constraints on options.
