Transfer rumours, targets & new signings


Doha

Recommended Posts

If it’s Taylor for Joyce and Garrity for Whitehead then that’s looking like upgrades even in the early stages. If it’s Garrity seemingly replacing Oyeleke in terms of value to the squad, it’s a bit more ... interesting. I don’t mean like for like with those players necessarily, I mean regarding their significance in the squad.

We have tied ourselves in a bit by re-signing Hurst, that doesn’t leave a lot of development space. It’s paramount now that we offload some of the transfer-listed midfielders.

The only thing with the Oldham comments is they aren't sour grapes, they are comments during the season itself not ones made today. 

It's a leftfield signing for sure but we'll judge him ourselves not based on their comments. 

Didn't play either game against us . 

Indeed. Every time I hear we get a duff player, known to be awful such as say Guthrie we get loads of people saying don’t moan, give the lad a chance. 
 

9 times out of ten they are usually every bit as bad as their existing reputation suggested. 
 

People then roll out names like Constantine from 15 years ago but he was an exception not the rule.

I think it shows Macc are spending money to get out of non league and up the pyramid ASAP.  Millionaire Chairman who has invested very heavily. When I was there with my lads training there was a big fuss as Durrell(?) was getting shown around. This was a player touted on her for us last year as a world beater. 

 

I went round macc s ground yesterday looks good with the plastic pitch.. good luck to them.. by the way james Wilson is almost certain to sign I think

I would love to know the ins and outs of Manny's departure. He struggled for fitness with us, but it cant be deigned, when he started we were a better team.

He then plays a few games and in his last game he goes off injured (if I remember correctly)

Gets sold to Chesterfield

Then he plays a good number of games for Chesterfield (never subbed) 

I would of loved Manny to stay, until he breaks down, I'll always be wondering , why did we let him go!

Looks like he's in Australia at the minute?

Your not wrong. They usually are but all’s we can do is give them a go and judge them by what they do for us.

Didn’t know we were back training 

Unfortunately for players nowadays there is no close season.... especially if you have something to prove... report into physio... get ya stats done as a baseline... then a bit of electronic wizardly on ya wrist and off ya go monitored every day report back at the end of the week for a progress check... apparently Burgess is tuning in some Olympic standard 10k runs. All differ t now to my day .... and Tommy mac s day 😜

Cross my fingers the matrix has seen something that other people haven't. Feels like Whitehead 2.0 but this time we've paid a fee.

And before people shoot me down for "not seeing him play" I have friends that are oldham fans who can't believe he's managed to get a league club to take him on. Its all well and good spouting about Constantine, but in reality he's the exception not the rule.

Time will tell and hopefully they will be proven wrong, but the fact we've paid a fee for him given the limits to our budget and the amount of holes we need to fill in the first team seems wild.

I think the signings so far could play at League 1 level and have scope to improve with coaching. It seems to me that is exactly what is needed to get promoted from League 2 and with a stable team that doesn't need much further change secure a good position in League 1. 

So I too can regret Manny leaving. He did well relatively when he was in the team in his time at PV. But the fact is League 2 was a career high level for him and he was injury prone. I sense he was happy to go to Chesterfield and plough a furrow with a former coach in the National League. He could surprise me if Chesterfield get promoted!

Thing is we are going for a younger squad. We are going to have less experience.

I remember this ridiculously young Man Utd team playing Port Vale and knocking us out of the cup. Next year the ridiculously young team won the Premier League.

If you did a search for either player on here most comments on those 2 players would be positive.  Every player will have some fans who don't rate them. The comments on the Oldham website are quite universally negative. So while it is the nature of the internet for people to comment; there is a difference in the 2 scenarios.

Exactly and if a search was done for Whitehead the fans' comments on him would be in stark contrast to those on Conlon and Smith. The fans would be spot on as Whitehead hardly covered himself in glory anytime he appeared in a Vale shirt.

Having said that let's give the lad a chance to show what he can do, he certainly sounds confident and enthusiastic.
