    Two decent out-and-out wingers. A proven goal scoring striker in the lower leagues (easy to get for virtually nothing as we know...... *tumbleweed*), a centre half with decent league experience and a passable replacement for Mitch Clark.

    5 absolute musts to cement ourselves in the top half.

    WITHOUT A HISTORY OF INJURIES AND POOR DISCIPLINE PLEASE!

    Be quite nice to get a creative box to box midfielder who knows where the net is, too.
    It is a massive rebuilding job.

    Unfortunately Anthony Grant has signed a new deal at Shrewsbury.

    I'm afraid Granty doesn't fit the bill with five goals in his last 271 appearances with 5 different clubs,4 goals at Crewe and 1 at Vale.
    No goals with his last 2 clubs.

    Grant got more than one for us. Scored against Carlisle in cup and Wigan in the league just from memory but he was more of an enforcer than creative force. Similar to Manny

    Most teams do have a solid defensive midfield player whose job is primarily to shield the back four, give support to the centre backs and pick up late runs into the box. Grant was good at this and that's why he's spent a lot of his career in league one. Did a lot of good work that went unnoticed. We need a player like him now that Kay has departed. Manny isn't the same type and more of a threat going forward. Joyce does a job and can pass the ball well and make space but he's not a destroyer like a Grant or a Griffith. You have to be decent in the air too to play that role well. I'd be happy if we could find someone like Grant for next season. It would take pressure off the centre backs.

    Didn't I hear Askey say this morning on the radio that we wanted two strikers in asap because the only one we had left now was Pope?
    In which case it suggests that Miller has gone - which some of us thought was the case weeks ago. But I've seen nothing about him.
    Cryptically he also said something about wanting people who were professional.

    Askey also said he was hoping we can get a decent striker in without having to pay too much, which sounded a bit ominous to me. Good strikers cost money and I hope the new owners can find the brass to help him out. Our previous owner was notorious for saying he could find a better striker than Pope for less money and look how that went. If we are looking for quality in a forward position, we'll have to find the readies, unless we are very, very lucky.
