    I agree but what they do know is that they will have to pay decent wages(within their means) and not pay Gorms stupid wage policy so I believe we will get decent players and might be surprised with one or two,they wont be stupid but know they have to pay for decent strikers...I doubt they will scrape the bottom of the barrel on manager wages either

    More than anything else we need to sign some players with goals in them. When you look at our list of goalscorers, it's pretty thin once you've got past Tom:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football...le/top-scorers

    I'm not sure what to expect in terms of funding if Synectics take over, but good strikers don't come cheap and we can't keep taking chances on non-league players to make up our main strike force, untried in the football league. Our problem is competing financially with other clubs, so I just hope that the Shanahans have got a few savings in their piggy bank.

    To strengthen our midfield I'd go for Elliot Durrell from Macc but he's not a goalscorer (just 4 league goals this season). So we might go as well for Scott Wilson also from Macc who's scored 23 in 60 games, 10 this season at a rate of one every 188 minutes, and was I think signed by Askey.

    I'd also go for Enzio Boldwijn for right midfield who would give us some pace and trickery as well as a few goals (5 league goals this season).

    Then, if can really push the boat out I'd go for Kane Hemmings who's scored 105 goals in 255 games, 14 this season at a rate of one every 193 minutes. I doubt he'll fancy playing in non-league so it might be worth an approach. He's got one year left on his contract, so would cost a bob or two.

    To put those stats into context, Tom has scored 12 league goals this season, one every 265 minutes.

    We've signed top players before under Rudge in the nineties and wouldn't it be good to see those days back at Vale Park? Never say never!

    I'd like to see us target the better players from smaller clubs that are out of contract.

    When Smurthwaite clears off, even without any financial boost from Carol, our superior gates should generate more revenue than the likes of Crawley/Stevenage/Cheltenham/Morecambe etc so let's poach their star men.

    I wouldnít be surprised if we didnít look at Lee Angol.

    Askey signed him for the Shrews, he didnít play after Askey was sacked and was loaned to Lincoln but hasnít really featured

    Yes we have to build the off field revenue 1st, then hopefully in the future a better class of play on the field, in that order, non of this cra# of speculate to accumulate, let's build from within, keep the faith, keep believing up the Vale

    Those names would certainly be good signings but out of those only Wilson and Durrell would be realistic,we will pay better wages than we do but I don't believe carol will go silly,you only have to look at the teams now struggling to pay players...its certainly going to get interesting

    Sure I read in The Sentinel that we tried to sign him in January. (possibly on that ridiculous last day of the window after Aspin had gone?)

    I can't give you any names for potential signings but we defiantly need a goalscoring midfielder and more pace and height added to the team.

    We did, along with another one of Askeyís Shrews signings Sam Jones.

    Jones turned us down and ended up at Cheltenham I think.

    Haven`t Cheltenham got a wealthy backer?

    several mentions for Enzio Boldwijn, but if you look on the Notts forum, hes mentioned as one of the reasons they went down.
