I cant see Garrity leaving this window, I don't think a club with a better financial pull would take a punt on him.... yet, January may be different if he does take last seasons form in the league above and proves himself but other than say Stockport a league below I can't see anyone paying at this stage as he is still unknown at this level of League One.

I think I’ll reserve judgement Funso when I see him play, everyone lost their heads last year when Garrity signed and look how that turned out listening to opposition fans on a forum. There’s always a lot of negatives when someone leaves. On paper seems like the kind of experience we need though. 

   From the Wigan lads who I work with there reaction this morning was to us signing Funso was how the f--ck have you got him-Fingers crossed

I wonder if Brad Walker will drop into centre back and so Ojo will be competing for the def. mid with Petty?

He may give the Management Team the option to play 4-2-3-1 as well as 3-5-2.

I love Brad Walker in defence but I wonder who would drop out?

Would we possibly be interested in Elliott Lee released by Luton Town?

A decent age (27) and has a League One promotion to his name. 

He's versatile too if this press release by Charlton is anything to go by - "can play behind a striker, in a front two or on either wing"

He's played around 100 games in League One and hit 12 goals for Luton in 2019.

He had a tough time on loan at Charlton last season with just four goals in 39 games but then again Wilson/Proctor were hardly prolific before they joined us and turned their goalscoring records around.

I have no idea if his wages would be an issue, if he destined for somewhere else or even if he's the sort of player the "Matrix" would be interested in, but to my amateur eyes, he seems to be the right type of skilful, versatile, experienced forward which would add some competition upfront. And this is a rumours thread after all, so why not link a player with absolutely no evidence of any move taking place!

Good question.

I guess that's what happens when you have a squad of players who can all do a job, and offer different qualities.

A bit of a strange one for us to get our heads round after all those years in the wilderness.

Yet another sign of change!

Garrity will prove himself in L1. 

        Funso

Conlon Garrity

Pett, Walker and Taylor on to shore things up at 4-0 and Charsley if we get an injury or 2. Oh my.

I wouldn’t feel worried going into the season with that midfield, but if we could wheel and deal a midfielder and get some creative midfield pedigree in there too then that would be amazing.

We’ll be getting in a dominant centre half as well I reckon. Every other goal came directly from a mediocre cross last season so that’s got to stop.

I think we need cover for Cass at right back because I don’t want to see Smith getting out of position up the field when covering

I still think there is a wing back to come. No way the management are going to bank on Wozza for 50 games. I see Cass as a right sided Conor Hall with Smithy taking the central position.

Agree with this, Cass isn’t a right back or a wing back IMO. We need cover / competition for Worrall.

This signing maybe does make more sense than first thought in terms of "another" Midfielder.

Our 2 defensive midfielders are Pett and Walker and Walker hasn't been injury free this season gone, add in there may be a requirement at times to go with two defensive midfielders to see out games are to keep it tighter against the top sides away from home for instance so 3 CDM's for 2 CDM playing positions possibly makes sense.

Obviously the question on one leaving would be more amplified if Holden signs as then we've got 5 for 1-2 spots!
