Interesting theory. However those backroom staff have certainly organised the club in a far better way. Smurfwaite cut us down to the bare bones.
I look at our whole squad and it looks easily good enough to get promotion. Honestly, look at FGRs squad and tell me you’d take theirs? 
 
I would say it is the injuries and that can’t be escaped from. Have a full strength squad and we would be in a vastly different place. 
We've got injures so need to react to this and increase the playing staff. Can't just say we're unlucky.

Also,shocked that he's going for a new goalie, can only imagine that's the last time we see Lucas.

He's in contract for 18 months. Statistically he was supposedly the best keeper in NL last season. The sending off daftness has never happened previously. I'd be surprised.

Me too, would be a silly call IMO. Lucas has been very good when he isn't being silly, to write him off now would be strange.

If one of the two players were bringing in the next 2 days is a goalie i'll be bemused. Maybe he doesn't fancy Stone.

I instantly thought that too, but then I remember DCs interview and he was asked why he'd not named a youth team goalie on the bench - he basically said that none of them are up to the grade required. So, I guess it could be either a direct replacement for lucas or just a youth/reserve goalie

Wait till wrexham and Stockport get promoted we'll have less chance next year. Not sure we should be shelling out for a director of football and a manager at this level. Spending far to much money on staff.

I thought that was all a bit weird, especially seen as he said "the main keeper Joe is injured" then the next week he's in goals for Congleton.

Probably had a point as he conceeded 3 last night at that level, Mckirdy would have had a field day.

Rodney is a gamble, there is something there, easy enough to put a few of his goals, assists etc together for his CV

I liked everything about him last season and this season it’s been the opposite. Another reason I’d like to see us go 433, Rodney and amoo are just wasted up top

Where has the 'not breaking the bank' thing come from - have I missed something that's been said today? I've heard DC say in the past they have a wage structure and DF say that's why we lost out on Politic but a lot of people have quoted it today - so just interested what I've missed

See the quotes on the page before, regarding Loft and Hemmings.

Why don’t they pay decent players more, then if anyone complains tell them that the more expensive player has achievements inkeeping with their remuneration. Want more money? Do good football stuff and then ask.

Appears the keeper we could be after is Thomas Holy from Ipswich according to Pete O’Rourke. Can’t claim to know much of him other than using the famous scouting tool Wikipedia his height is apparently 6ft9in.

If that is the case, then I think it's safe to say DC doesn't feel he can rely on Lucas any longer - rather than my earlier thoughts it could be we're just looking for a short term reserve goalie.

Not a great name for a keeper
