Title: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Glastonbury Cobbler on April 22, 2019, 17:42:15 pm
With the season all but over, time has come to look to next season hopefully with some optimism that we will improve on this year.

Any rumours / gossip of players we may be chasing / would like to bring in.

The obvious one is Shaq Coulthirst - who we were reportedly chasing in January and has continued to score goals at the level below - Any other rumours?

Now come on Keith - I know its been another bad day at the office - but no need for that!

In all seriousness - Curle is here next seasons - weather I like it or not - So we may as well all get behind him and give him the opportunity to bring his own players in and shape his own team!

Back to the thread - Anyone heard any whispers?

Ibehre from Cambridge (KC tried getting him in Jan but Cambridge wanted a fee) hopefully KC won't go back in for him as he's well past it but nothing would surprise me.

Hope & Devitt from Carlisle if they don't go up...

If Bury go up Adams might put in another transfer request as he don't play in L1!

I think he's contracted to only play league 2 football but rarely ventures south of Manchester.

Back to the thread - Anyone heard any whispers?

Which is exactly what most of us have been saying for weeks now, has the penny finally dropped? Iím sure youíll give him the benefit of the doubt until he makes his first signing of the summer and when itís not messi youíll moan, then if heaven forbid we lose a game early next season or play in a style not acceptable to your lofty standards then youíll moan again.

Anyway back to the thread - I hope we look to someone with a bit more mileage left than an ibehre. Didnít someone say KC was looking at an experienced striker a while back? We desperately need pace in the wide areas - both fullbacks/wingbacks and wide attackers and could also do with KC/Tracey using their contacts to unearth a ilias chair or Jorge grant on loan.

Danny Hylton, out of contract in June.

Hylton is a super shout - Can't see Luton holding onto him ion the Champ.

Real nuisance player who knows where the back of the net is and could play off a bigger forward.


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Irchy cob on April 22, 2019, 21:20:11 pm
As you alluded to in another thread it all depends on a number of factors - most notably KCís retained list (for what itís worth I would be disappointed with anything less than a massive cull) and the funds/budget heís given by KT. In the January deadline we saw names like Hylton (the sublime) bandied around only to end up with the ridiculous (Sordell), I canít see anyone as high profile as Hylton coming here - if he did it would be a massive coup but very little chance.

A lot more realistic than Hylton (!) - he seems a bit maligned on here possibly due to a bit of an underwhelming loan spell but heís had a very good season at Carlisle. Jamie DeVitt is also out of contract I believe and would add to the creativity in the midfield.

Good work Grange - it looks like we can put that one to bed!

On this Stockport striker and other non league ďstarsĒ, gone are the days of swooping down and picking up rough diamonds (a la Morley, hill, mcgoldrick team al) for next to nothing. All of these non league players are tracked and chased by multiple teams the majority of which would have a lot more pull/finances than we have.

Wow...thats a question and a half! Nicky Smith though came to us having played more than 200 games for Southend and Colchester, so his full time profession was as a footballer. He then dropped out of the league and played for a number of non-league teams whilst also working as a policeman.

I'm sure KC & his team have tapped JD up already. A quality creative player is exactly what we need.

After the Yeovil game on radio N'pton Tim O was asking Sammo which areas needed strengthening in the transfer market. Amongst other suggestions Sammo said we needed a big target man striker to which Tim O indicated an expected deal for a  player KC had previously worked with. We are not seriously considering 36 year old Jabo Ibehre are we?

I was only being facetious! I agree about the big man little man comment - I just would hope that we could bring in a slightly more inspiring big man than ibehre, having said that the likes of John Gayle and Garry Thompson didnít score many and still made a decent contribution. If we do get this Warburton it would go down as a bit of a coup - KC must be a good salesman if he has persuaded him to sign! Having said that we are going to need to bring in some proven quality to provide the ammunition for him or we risk turning another decent striker s**t as we so often have in the past.

It's easier to think of the ones that will definitely be offered something or are still under contract. A short list which may become even shorter if one or two receive better offers elsewhere.

Curle is so unpredictable , it is very hard to guess who he may keep.
Suddenly the likes of ( god forbid ) Daniel Powell and Bowditch come into contention whereas Bridge and Taylor drop out .
Some may also be offered reduced terms bearing in mind they were signed when the club thought it had a cash injection and the players had enhanced reputations .
As I have said before , I wouldn't be unhappy to see anyone leave except the youngsters and possibly Pierre .
Sammo said on Saturday that there is virtually nothing to build the club around and he is dead right .

Another point, isn't Taylor under contract for next season? I'm sure he is, but I'm equally sure that he'll be on his way.

I really expect Powell to be offered something. Not sure about Bowditch, but as said previously, I would welcome them both leaving. Some players have already stated their intentions [to leave]. I'm more worried about the likes of Pierre who we might wish to keep but end up losing anyway.

It doesnít surprise me in the slightest - like I said a few weeks ago all of the players who leave us will have no trouble finding some other mug team that think they can solve the enigma that is Dean Bowditch or shay facey etc. Ash Taylor is obviously another of the big earners that KC is having to try to balance the books with, what does surprise me is that with a year left on his contract isnít he going to have that year paid off or some kind of mutual agreement?

I assumed that to be the case. I bet he's on 2-3k a week, and I also bet that his CV, which is good, will ensure there will be a fair amount of interest in him. He's also got a young family, I doubt he will want to keep travelling down here. As soon as he knows he's not playing, he cant get back up the M6 quick enough so he's hardly a committed team player! Was he at the game on Saturday, Id be amazed if he was?!

I assumed that to be the case. I bet he's on 2-3k a week, and I also bet that his CV, which is good, will ensure there will be a fair amount of interest in him. He's also got a young family, I doubt he will want to keep travelling down here. As soon as he knows he's not playing, he cant get back up the M6 quick enough so he's hardly a committed team player! Was he at the game on Saturday, Id be amazed if he was?!

Sammo said on Saturday that there is virtually nothing to build the club around and he is dead right .

You need to listen to Sammo again as he mentioned 3 players to build around and possibly a 4th. He also included Cornell in the group.

Post by: clarkeysntfc on April 29, 2019, 13:56:51 pm
Sammo also said Cornell is a good goalkeeper for this level, that will shut some up!


He didn't say he's a good goalkeeper. He said thought he was fine for this level, and speculated about how realistic it would be to recruit someone who's basically 10/10 every week.

He actually said that he is "a good goalkeeper for this level".  Interpret that how you will but those were his words.
He also speculated that at this level it would be difficult to recruit a 10/10 keeper.  I interpret that as you would only be able to recruit a 10/10 keeper, like De Gea, in the Premier League.

Sammo had a very dim view on the team . He was struggling to name players that he would keep from the current squad and came up with a small selection when pushed . If you want to perceive that as building a team around individuals then good luck to you .

Yes they can.
Any new signings that currently have clubs or had contracts when the January window closed will be pre contract, any that havent had a contract since January can sign a full contact.
Not sure how season long loans works though. That's another possibility.

Was on loan at Mansfield for the first half of the season, made 16 starts and a further 8 appearances off the bench scoring four goals.
Comes to us and makes 4 starts with 4 more appearances off the bench and chips in with one goal.

I would have thought that KC would have used him a bit more had he rated him.....perhaps he had seen him playing in a game or two, liked the look of him but once he got him in maybe he didn't shine in training or whatever. Hence him being used sparingly.

When you've brought someone in on loan and only given him 4 starts in 4 months i'd be surprised to see a deal made permanent.

I was under the impression that clubs in England can't sign players from other clubs in England until in the last week of their contract,

I thought that was why Aaron Ramsey was allowed to talk/sign for Juventus and other clubs outside of England but not English clubs until June.

Quote
Under current rules, a Premier League player whose contract expires in June does not need the permission of their club to negotiate with foreign clubs in January. If they agreed a deal, they would then join said foreign club in the summer.

Be great if we do have some new players next week though so i'm happy to be wrong on this one.

Would be glad of us taking a punt on people like Matty Warburton, instead of splashing out mega wages on aging pro's that have offered very little (as seems to be the case with the ones we have signed recently).

Would certainly welcome Jamie Devitt as a replacement for Bridge/Bowditch, but will we have the wages to make it happen?



Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Boot and shoe on May 04, 2019, 10:05:48 am
Good to see Keith Curle have a swipe at Bury in the media .
Clubs that overspend and canít fulfil the wage bill deserve no credit whatsoever .
I am aware we run at a £2 mill loss but as long as the bills are covered and under written that is acceptable.
Bury are a sham as are Bolton and other clubs before them .


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Lukey on May 04, 2019, 13:48:45 pm
And a 10 million quid loan was taken from the council in the name of our great club.

Maybe we should not be allowed to get promoted until we pay back every penny of it.

We don't know exactly what has gone wrong at Bury, but if they had given Keith the job a couple of seasons ago he wouldn't be taking a swipe at them, it's all well and good to sit there criticising from the other side, sometimes it looks like sour grapes, in football every team runs into difficulty at some point and for me if you look at the Bury squad they don't strike me as being on big wages and far to good for league two so i think that squad deserves a bit of credit for getting promoted, it's certainly not their fault.

A few weeks ago in an interview Goode was asked about the possibility of joining us permanently and he said something about a lot depending on whether Sc***horpe stayed up or not. I wonder if their relegation makes it more or less likely that we could sign him (we could have done with some kind of swap deal with van veen). I see that waters was on the bench for Cheltenham the last few weeks which doesnít bode well for getting them to take him off our hands, likewise it doesnít look like bunney has been pulling up any trees at Rochdale.

He said he is not selected there in a League 1 team so he may be off if they stayed up, but of course it is more likely they may select him in a League 2 team, so it's less likely he'll leave them now. Still a possibility though.

Makes sense I suppose, having said that he was deemed surplus to requirements and has played pretty much every game for us (and their fans seemed pretty glad to see him leave if I recall). The big stumbling block will be the remaining year on his contract so it will either be a fee or a pay out on that year.

Unfortunately it doesnít look like Devitt is a realistic option - Carlisle have offered him a new deal that would make him their best paid player and as heís out of contract Hearts and Hibs are sniffing round. The only ace we would have up our sleeve is his past relationship with KC (I assume), but he would take up a big chunk of the budget.

Mike Jones has been offered new terms but they are saying that his previous contract was heavily incentivised by KC so it will be a reduced offer, donít know if heíd be interested again.

Intereresting scenario regarding the potential signing of Warburton from Stockport. His current manger Jim Gannon worked with Curle at Mansfield and was part of the alleged bullying scandal at Field Mill. From my base in Liverpool I have seen Warburton play a couple of times this season and he has real potential, the down side of signing him is that apart from Buchanan recent Cobblers signings from the North West have struggled to settle to the humdrum life of the East Midlands eg Nicky Adams, and Bunney.  Hopefully Curle will be able to address this issue in Warburtons case if the proposed deal for him goes through otherwise like in Bunneys case it will be a wasted investment.

Intereresting scenario regarding the potential signing of Warburton from Stockport. His current manger Jim Gannon worked with Curle at Mansfield and was part of the alleged bullying scandal at Field Mill. From my base in Liverpool I have seen Warburton play a couple of times this season and he has real potential, the down side of signing him is that apart from Buchanan recent Cobblers signings from the North West have struggled to settle to the humdrum life of the East Midlands eg Nicky Adams, and Bunney.  Hopefully Curle will be able to address this issue in Warburtons case if the proposed deal for him goes through otherwise like in Bunneys case it will be a wasted investment.

County fan in peace here. Jim Gannon hasn't worked with Curle, he was playing for Shelbourne in Ireland when Curle was at Mansfield.

The rumours have been doing the rounds here for weeks so I'm not surprised to see Matty's move confirmed. Great creative attacking midfielder with an eye for goal. Played his best stuff for us in a number 10 role behind a number 9 linking midfield and attack. Was a marked man for the last few months of the season meaning his goals dried up somewhat but that simply allowed space for others. I wish him a successful time with you all, he's earned the right to be move full time.

Fair play for the message.

Does this mean the end of the wing-back experiment, or are we going to be sticking him up front I wonder? I'd also assume if he is a wide player then we're not following up on the Dorking winger we had on trial?

On the Stockport website it says "striker Matty joins NTFC". So, he's a striker who can also play as an attacking midfield player?

He's not a wide player. Either striker or just behind a striker, I think.

Hence the spin from our club making it sound like he's scored 40 goals last season (it was actually 40 in the calendar year 0f 2018).....21 last and 27 this wasn't it? Although most of this seasons 27 came in the first half of the season and as you said it dried up second half.

Got to convert from part time to full time but certainly seems to have the pedigree to be a success.....great first signing of the summer!

Watched the youtube video of his goals, most of which were very clean strikes, many of which were from long range. Which makes me optimistic.

Definitely looks like a number10. Don't think any of them were headers from memory!

Have we found a modern day Richard Hill? We can dream.

At 27, and given that he's had to put his teaching career on hold, as well as commit to travelling 6 hours a day (or relocating), its a big g@mble for him and one that Im sure will ensure that he is absolutely 100% committed to making a success.

On paper, an excellent piece of business. Onto the next one!  :)

I hope weíve tied him down well, because if he does produce in the FL heís on enough teams radars already.  Lots of interest in January but nothing materialised.

Very true, look at Lobjoit.
However, I like to think about it in reverse. How many would our existing players in that position, maybe Sammy Hoskins, JJOT or Pollock, score in Brackley's team? If its less than 27 (it is), we've potentially signed a better player than we have already.

I think the approach is made to the players agent. "Is said player available etc...etc". In fairness I think Warburton has said the same in his interview, he was aware from his agent that teams have been watching him since January time.

The irony is that he usually does well against us so letís hope that doesnít continue - it also probably answers why KC was unable to get him in January? Looking at the Carlisle retained list from yesterday, Ritchie bennett has been released - 6ft 4 forward who KC paid quite a bit of money for when he was manager there, doesnít score many but did well on loan at morecambe.

No idea. If he can pick up Championship wages (I can't believe they would offer him a wage increase based on promotion - he was never going to part of the eventual Prem squad and must have known that when signing) and sit at home every week then why wouldn't he? Hopefully, at his age, he'd rather be playing football. I'm sure you're right though and will be loaned to aL1/L2 club. If we only pay a small portion of his wages I'd say he's worth a puint on loan.

Its common in football, agents always try to insert a promotion wage rise regardless of if the player plays or not.

Clubs try to add a relegation clause to lower the wages as a way to protect themselves,  probably not clubs like Portsmouth and QPR though, their chairmen are far too savvy for that.

Injections weekly, game every three weeks and unfortunately these days about as mobile as Stephen Hawking when in second gear...but go on, take a punt!

Clearly you have better knowledge than me if you have been tracking his progress on a daily basis, no need to be so aggressive about it!

I saw him plenty enough during his spell at Charlton (albiet two seasons ago) and he constantly carried that team in L1. He's clearly had injury problems, but guess what, they don't always last forever! Like I say, if the wages aren't much of an issue I'd have him back on loan. If he's constantly injured, send him back. It's a no lose scenario.

yep - everyone has spent all season saying how much we have needed width and wingers - as we have had to watch hoskins, powell, powell, bridge etc all try and fail.

so definitely weird now to bring one in.

Wouldn't want Holmes's back he decided to do one when he was in the best form in his career. Smith decided to jump ship to so wouldn't want him back. Rico seemed to be forced out and I don't think he wanted to go but I'd take him back in a heartbeat and jjot deserves another year atleast

Sentiment should play no part in signing or re-signing players.  It is clear that Rico and Buchanan are not part of our future. We should always welcome them back as guests for their massive contributions to the club.  We have enough geriatrics like myself in the stands without populating our side with old favourites.

Any of those would be good (even better would be Devitt) but I think itís more likely to be Idris Kanu (some people on Facebook seemed convinced that we were going to sign him today) or Liddle who was released by Carlisle.

Some on Twitter seem to think he was decent enough, and that we have offered him more money than what they could.

Certainly cannot say this guy lacks experience! And being able to play LB and LWB will be crucial if we need to change formation at any point. Hopefully a fitting replacement for Buchs, time will tell.

30


Can't say he's a name that I've heard of! A look at his stats shows a career spanning 11 years, 303 starts and 29 more appearances from the bench. Only 16 goals in that time so it looks like he's more of a provider than a scorer.
Was sent off three times in the 2011/12 season and also picked up 13 bookings in 2015/16 season. Only played 16 games last season in total, 2 goals and one red card.

Agreed but it wouldnít fit with the ďexperienced headĒ clue. If it turns out to be Liddle (Curle has signed him twice before and heís on a free) then I would think that might mean that we wonít be after Goode as they are both right sided centre backs/defenders.

Agree with this - Lines would be a significant upgrade on foley/jjot in my opinion, I just hope we get this over the line (pun intended), I guess it depends on his integrity but at the end of the day thereís not a lot of that in football these days and the pull of his old manager may be too much. Regarding jjot, if he does end up staying I hope the club invest in a time machine for Moulton as thatís the only way he would be an asset for next season.

A two year deal for a player of that age is always a risk but no one will come on a one year deal .
I get the nurturing thing and a set piece specialist is important but it really does rely on these young lads coming though .
We will soon see if itís hype or if the quality is really there with the youngsters.
Letís see who else KC brings in but you wouldnít want many more twilight career players .

Although their wages are high, they should be on "relegated" L1 salaries as KT alluded to the fact that we signed them with a clause that meant a lower salary if we got relegated.

Happy with the signings so far, a hungry talented player from non-league, an experienced pro (but younger) to replace Buchs with decent set piece delivery and can play all of the left side, and a very decent central midfielder to replace Bowditch/Foley/JJOT.

There will be a reliance on the youth to start proving themselves next season for certain, will be interesting to see if anyone other than Jay Williams, McWilliams and Pollock are involved heavily from the off. Suppose it is reliant on how many players leave/who we can sign but I would take these over some of the current crop.

Obviously hope we keep the big man/extend his contract...

Sure he'll be looking for better options than Shrewsbury!

https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/05/16/shrewsbury-bid-for-in-demand-aaron-pierre/ (https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/05/16/shrewsbury-bid-for-in-demand-aaron-pierre/)

Shrewsbury Town have launched a bid for Northampton Town defender Aaron Pierre as they look to fend off interest from Championship and League One clubs for his signature, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Pierre enjoyed an outstanding season for Northampton and he was rewarded by cleaning the boards at the club's end of season awards.

The Grenada international was a virtual ever-present for Northampton this season, making 45 appearances and chipping in with eight goals from central defence.

The 26-year-old's performances have not gone unnoticed among teams higher up the football ladder and they are monitoring his situation during this summer's transfer window.

Pierre is entering the final year of his contract at Northampton and his suitors are ready to test the Cobblers' resolve to hang onto the powerful defender.

Shrewsbury are keen to strengthen their squad this summer after narrowly avoiding relegation from League One and they have made Pierre one of their top targets.

However, they could face competition from a number of Championship and League One clubs who are also weighing up moves for the Pierre this summer.

Not being funny, but why would he not go there? They would give him lg1 every week. For what it's worth I think he will go higher, but people who think he won't go to 'little old Shrewsbury need to get a bit of perspective as they are bigger than us and it's exactly what he did when he left Wycombe for us.

Look at it another way: they wouldn't have offered much. They're just getting in early to see if there's any chance of capitalising on our desperation. We will get better offers. Bet they didn't offer more than £150k.

At least if a few clubs are interested we might get something like what heís worth (whatever that is) and not just having to accept the only offer we get - having said that we wonít get told how much the fee is in any case. Failing that if we just get derisory offers it would probably be worth just holding on to him for the last year of his contract in the hope that he leads us to promotion. If he does go Iím guessing that we would probably go for Goode who while being a solid enough player is no Pierre.

It's his goals from set pieces that I worry we won't replace, I would take a couple of mistakes a season in exchange for 8/9 goals.

I'd happily give him any spare wages we had if we can sell one of the three transfer listed players too, if it meant keeping him.

Loved this from the wikipedia entry on him:

Quote
Bennett signed for Cumbrian side Carlisle United on 25 July 2017 for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract (with the option of a further year).[3] Through his period at the blues he was deployed in collecting the cones and bibs after training. During several key moments he missed the locker containing the cones and ended up in the cleaning cupboard. After an uninspiring start he was moved to tea making.

However, everyone in the thread was talking about wanting to sign him, so he cleared impressed a lot of our fans. Maybe a little bit worried that Macclesfield weren't worried about losing him, but a few people in the thread earlier were not worried about losing Pierre earlier on today, so guess it doesn't mean much.

Judging from Curle's comments following the retained list release I'm guessing anybody else still here (apart from Pierre and Turnbull perhaps) will have been told they will likely be no more than bench/squad players next season. Despite being offered a (likely very reduced in terms) contract my guess is that Powell was told similar. I actually think we'll bring in another striker and Williams and Morias (if they choose to stay) will be our back-up strikers.

I can see 10 more signings and a virtual new starting XI before the window is out.

Itís interesting that we all seem to have based our opinion on his (admittedly pretty decent) performance against us - the way our defence performed at times last season suggests thatís perhaps not the achievement it could be. Hopefully it wasnít a one off and heíll put himself about on a consistent basis for us but itís also interesting that their fans donít seem massively bothered heís gone.

Maybe I was just distracted by their fat playmaker, but I don't remember him doing much in the Macclesfield game. However, everyone in the thread was talking about wanting to sign him, so he cleared impressed a lot of our fans. Maybe a little bit worried that Macclesfield weren't worried about losing him, but a few people in the thread earlier were not worried about losing Pierre earlier on today, so guess it doesn't mean much.
Thought Smith and the tubby one stood out in the first half.

Gambins career has not really taken off, he has made 110  starts but also come off the bench a whopping 89 times too......never been a regular, even at Crawley last season (on loan from Luton)

Ashley Nadesan from Fleetwood could be a possibility...offered a new contract but wants to be nearer his family in the south...out of contract and 24 so no fee would be required...Crawley also interested.

KC had him on loan at Carlisle and tried to bring him in on loan in January but Fleetwood played him when he returned from his loan from Carlisle so couldn't play for another league club last season...

If we can shift Waters or Bunney soon this would help free up some more budget.

We have a budget every year which is dictated by the division we are in,  income from sky tv/ league affiliation and the up take of season tickets..
Being league 2 fodder again with falling gates and an alienated support base resulting from a club still without any direction will see only a 3rd of the budget that our nearest and dearest rivals, posh mk, oxford and luton will be expecting.
But as long as you're ok with that,  fine but dont go hoping no-one looks at things in a different light to you  then questions them.   😂😂

Thing I find strange is that we have lost another member of staff involved with the academy. This time it's the 'head of academy coaching' - not to be confused with the 'head of the academy. We also lost the 'lead development coach. In the space of 3 months, we have lost 3 long term members of staff that have been integral to the success of the academy. Given the current success, shouldn't we be doing more to hold on to these people?

Think that's a bit harsh, can remember him being up for player of the month a few times in league one and winning it once. It's only the last 18 months or so that he's gone off the boil and he's been surrounded by dross. Always been good on set pieces and Clough has alluded to that in interviews - if they use him right I can see him chipping in with a few goals there.

This is DAN at his fluent best. I agree with you; although his recent performances in L1 and L2 were a bit nondescript. Will Clough Junior get the best out of him as CW didn't until the failed loan fiasco to Southend.

Actually you maybe omitting some 'other' competition goals so I thought he scored more than 8 ,  11 or 12?

Yep, all down to KC that relegation season and horrendous start to last seasons campaign  ::)

He did the job he was brought in to do and comfortably led us to mid table with the underperforming squad he inherited.

Stop wallowing & get behind KC rather than slagging him off at every opportunity...

THE SQUAD NEEDED SOMEONE TO COME IN WITH THE BALLS TO CHANGE THE STALE CHANGING ROOM MENTALITY & NOT GIVE UNDERPERFORMING PLAYERS CHANCE AFTER CHANCE..KC DONE THAT

KC now deserves the chance to build his own squad and can then be judged. He's made some shrewd signings already & I for one am excited for the season ahead.

Who knows what will happen but KC only has one year left on his contract so no doubt will be wanting that elusive promotion on his CV.

Just enjoy the ride and see what happens...

pierre is a stopper, a clumsy one at that, he isnt a footballer - but could do a job in league one.

foley is old, and a terrible footballer - runs around a bit, wins the ball, gives it away - cheap squad player for league 1 or 2 - whoever it is wont be going far with him in the team.

KC was also brought in to ship out the players with a losing mentality and terrible attitude - the best way to do it is to release them or wind them up enough to force them out - it seems he is doing both.
it could be worse, we could have DA kissing their arses and building them up to be like brazil in the 1970 world cup, only to see them crumble at every available opportunity.

Yep, all down to KC that relegation season and horrendous start to last seasons campaign  ::)

He did the job he was brought in to do and comfortably led us to mid table with the underperforming squad he inherited.

Stop wallowing & get behind KC rather than slagging him off at every opportunity...

THE SQUAD NEEDED SOMEONE TO COME IN WITH THE BALLS TO CHANGE THE STALE CHANGING ROOM MENTALITY & NOT GIVE UNDERPERFORMING PLAYERS CHANCE AFTER CHANCE..KC DONE THAT

KC now deserves the chance to build his own squad and can then be judged. He's made some shrewd signings already & I for one am excited for the season ahead.





Who knows what will happen but KC only has one year left on his contract so no doubt will be wanting that elusive promotion on his CV.

Just enjoy the ride and see what happens...

I see that Regan Poole is likely to be released by Man Utd anybody want to see him return?.
Clearly has had a decent season loan at Newport County and I suppose our chances would depend on the result of the play off final.

I rated Regan Poole, it was mystifying why he didnít get more of a look in here as he looked more than useful in defensive midfield as well as central defence. I would imagine thereíll be no shortage of takers and as you say if Newport go up theyíll be in pole position.

4 in so far with 10 out (the original released 8 plue AT & JJOT)

Should hear if DP will accept terms soon too...

Though we might have been in for Tom Parkes (KC signed him for Carlisle) after he rejected a new deal but has since signed for Exeter.

Good to hear that KC is sticking to his guns on what he believes a player is worth, and not being bullied into those dreaded "we promise to play you" type conversations.

Mentions that Powell has a time frame to sign the deal offered as well, he is still within this but no info on to how long he has to do so.

On the fence.

Has ability, rarely looks like he can be bothered to use it. Saying that, had a good run and some goals in the last few games when played upfront, would not be adverse to him being kept on as an impact sub/cover if he doesn't cost the earth.

There will be new signings here for sure, I would think.

CB: Pierre, J.Williams, Turnbull, Hughes
LB/LWB: Martin, Turnbull (Cover), Bunney (Transfer Listed)
RB/RWB: C.McWilliams

Powell/Hoskins/S.McWilliams can all play RWB to a degree, but unless we are going all in on Camron McWilliams then it will be a right sided defensive signing at some point you would hope.

if we start the season with any of those 3 RWB then it will be another painful watch as it will either mean SMcW isn't in midfield - and it would also mean that hoskins or powell is in the team.

We'd have Smith, Morias and Willo plus Hoskins can play there if needed. And Warburton/Roberts can go behind one of the previous if we play that way.

It's all about opinions, in my opinion Bunn would be a much better keeper, at 34, than Cornell will ever be, 34 is still quite young for a goalkeeper. We have just given Chris Lines a 2 year contract and he's a 33 year old outfield player.

why not - we signed sean dyche, ian taylor and eoin jess 14 years ago and things are the same now as they were back then apparently.

I know you are being sarcastic but on that point,

The wage disparity is much bigger now, and you have the homegrown players quota that will see even the bigger clubs like Chelsea sign players has back up keepers to fill the quota ala Rob Green.

Obviously if Bunn had a chance like Rob Green he would take it BUT he has been 3rd choice at a Championship club this season and has been released. I think his future lies further down the Leagues, but we will see, it still doesn't change the fact that he would be a great signing for us, in my opinion.

Problem is, nobody actually knows how good/bad he is these days, as he has only played two games in the last two seasons.

I would be happier with Cornell/Lashley next season and the money going elsewhere in the squad.

I believe the old saying "Form is temporary, class is permanent"  and Bunn was class when he was here. I know it was a while ago but since he left he has spent all that time with either Premier or Championship clubs.

What is this obsession with mark bunn. He has hardly played since he left us. Donít get me wrong he was a very good keeper for us. If he had the option of going to a championship/league 1 club for higher wages and sit on the bench he would choose that over playing week in week out for us on lower wages. Not the sort of character Kieth Curle has been talking about. David Cornell was not the problem last season and if anyone thinks he was then they obviously didnít go to many games last season. In fact he was one of the few consistent performers. Personally would rather spend the money elsewhere

Cornell was not THE problem but he was one of them. He cost between 10-15 goals last season through individual errors alone.

I was vocal on here at the start of the season about Buchanan and Taylor's liability and their leaving has been long overdue, however I believe Cornell was just as culpable for our goals conceded record and will be surprised if Curle doesn't sign a new keeper this summer.

Ryan Watson is one of those signings that could go either way - it looks like the pedigree is there somewhere but he needs to kick on as his career has stalled a bit. I didnít realise but he was released after 2 years at Barnet and then he didnít play much at MK last season. At least heíll be fresh I suppose.

It will be Curle's first major error if he isn't. Personally I don't think any of the players who played last season will have secure starting places, Curle has made this clear enough. I don't see why Cornell would be immune from this line of thinking.

I think the clue might be that despite us having Lewis Ward on loan from Reading, plus Coddington and Goff on the books, none of those three dislodged Cornell from between the sticks. This to me shows that Cornell is rated/preferred by Curle.

You are another with obsessive fixation on Cornell always out to prove your point. It appears you are wrong tho'!

And you have an obsessive fixation with defending Cornell from posters who don't rate him.

Cornell certainly divides opinion on here but those who think we can and should do a lot better than him are pretty numerous on here, perhaps even more so than those such as yourself who think he is a good choice as our number 1. My opinion on him is that he is a solid number 2 for this level.

As to my having an obsession with Cornell this is simply not true as I have been equally vocal about other players who I have believed have not been good enough, most notably Taylor, Buchanan and Hoskins. I have also stated that I think that very few of the players from last seasons squad will be guaranteed a starting place. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if no more than 3-4 players - at most - from last season will make the starting XI at any one time next season, so it's hardly like I'm singling Cornell out for possibly being only a bench warmer next season.

Curles squad strengthening priorities lie elsewhere.

Ward was a poor signing in the first place. Cornell being better than Coddington and Goff only shows that the latter two were nowhere near good enough and does not in any way mean that there aren't better keepers than Cornell who could be bought in as our number 1.

Out of the out of contract/loan players only one was offered a contract and only 3 out of the contracted players were made available for transfer, two of which had spent the season out on loan.

Do you think that Curle happened to rate all or most of the contracted players but not the ones out of contract? Or do you think its possible he doesn't rate very many of the contracted players at all but is more or less stuck with them? Have any contracted players been made available for transfer that haven't made it clear they would like to move elsewhere? The only possible would be Waters but even he has spent the season on loan and may well have said he is open to a transfer.

In short, the fact that players are still at the club means bugger all as to Curle's thoughts about these players.

I think that might have more to do with the defence in front of him. Im sure cornell will concede less with a solid and stable defence next season.
Look what happened when Pierre and Turnbull played for that stint mid season, we conceded less. When Taylor came back in we conceded more, you cant say that was cornells fault?

No, he went to Forest Green as their number 2 after their previous on loan keeper had been recalled by Brighton. He only got a run of games initially after coming on for their injured keeper and was even benched for their final 4 league games before coming back in for the play-off semi-final. They were also already sitting comfortably in 4th place before he made an appearance for them.

Ward was a poor signing in the first place. Cornell being better than Coddington and Goff only shows that the latter two were nowhere near good enough and does not in any way mean that there aren't better keepers than Cornell who could be bought in as our number 1.

Out of the out of contract/loan players only one was offered a contract and only 3 out of the contracted players were made available for transfer, two of which had spent the season out on loan.

See my post above. Ward was loaned by FGR after their previous keepers loan was cut short by Brighton and he only got game time after their keeper became injured:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6647731/Forest-Green-keeper-James-Montgomery-reveals-gruesome-facial-injury.html

A gander at FGR's forum shows that their fans don't rate the injured keeper who Ward replaced either:

http://forum.fgrfc.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=104992

Still didn't stop Ward being dropped for him in their final league games though.

Incorrect - Ward was signed as a replacement keeper. Then the would be second place goalie got injured.  Apparently Ward played very well before picking up an injury himself which explains his absence prior to the play offs.

Probably yes it can. But you maybe missing the point of the argument - the experts at the Club (not you,Glaston,Man04 etc) that is  the current management feel that Cornell is ok - or until somebody comes up and who is affordable for the Club. With funds relatively tight why spend the budget on a non essential goal keeper; we have other areas which have greater priority?

Thing I find strange is that we have lost another member of staff involved with the academy. This time it's the 'head of academy coaching' - not to be confused with the 'head of the academy. We also lost the 'lead development coach. In the space of 3 months, we have lost 3 long term members of staff that have been integral to the success of the academy. Given the current success, shouldn't we be doing more to hold on to these people?
Add another to the above. That makes 4.

Did you bother to read my post? As far as I am aware only 3 players were made available for transfer: Bunney, Waters and Taylor. At least 2 of those have/had made it clear of their wish to leave. The only player that I am unaware if he has asked to leave is Waters, but this doesn't mean that he hasn't. Both Bunney and Waters were out on loan all last season well.

Of the players out of contract only Powell was offered (likely very reduced) terms.

Are we supposed to believe that by some remarkable piece of fortune the only players that KC 'rated' in the squad at the seasons end happened to be (bar Powell) the ones still under contract? This would be absurd.

That Cornell (or anyone else) hasn't been transfer listed means nothing.

So why was Ward on the bench for a number of games following his move and only bought on following an injury to their keeper? Most of Ward's appearances came with their keeper (Montgomery) out of the squad altogether through injury. A check also shows that when Montgomery played their final 4 league matches Ward was also on the bench, so he was not injured then I would think. Talk about twisting facts to suit Evers, anything in your obsessive defence of Cornell!  ;D

All I can say is have a look at FGR Forum and then give an informed opinion on Ward. I enjoy any critical opinion of a (NTFC) player but I think along with two or three others; you have developed an obsessive opinion which you air constantly to hammer home a derided and outdated opinion. By the way what happened to your theory that the squad was more than good enough and should make the play-offs?

I'm a bit lost......

Cornell played (almost) every game for Curle and was still under contract and was kept on. Taylor was still under contract, played very few games for Curle but was made available for transfer.

So Curle wanted to keep Cornell and wanted to get rid of Taylor....correct?  Ergo, it means something that Cornell was not listed doesn't it? Or maybe Cornell is quiet in the dressing room and doesn't make a fuss about anything......just saying!  ;)

He cost us more points than he saved us. If we're happy to continue along as a lower/bottom half team that flirts with relegation then Dai is fine for that.

In other words you are saying that Cornell is good enough, FACT, yes?

As to my theory about the quality of the squad being good enough for the play-offs, what has that got to do with Cornell, except from your using it as a feeble attempt to rubbish my opinion about our current GK situation?

Regardless, the evidence suggests that estimation wasn't too far wrong, being that the points per game ratio after Curle came in, if extrapolated for the whole season, would have seen us finishing teetering on the edge of the play-offs at least. Considering the extensive injury list we had as the season drew to a close and the loss of Crooks and Van Veen in January I think it's fair to say that if it hadn't been for Austin's mismanagement in the first 10 matches the squad was good enough to finish in the play-offs last season.

In other words you are saying that Cornell is good enough, FACT, yes?

As to my theory about the quality of the squad being good enough for the play-offs, what has that got to do with Cornell, except from your using it as a feeble attempt to rubbish my opinion about our current GK situation?

Regardless, the evidence suggests that estimation wasn't too far wrong, being that the points per game ratio after Curle came in, if extrapolated for the whole season, would have seen us finishing teetering on the edge of the play-offs at least. Considering the extensive injury list we had as the season drew to a close and the loss of Crooks and Van Veen in January I think it's fair to say that if it hadn't been for Austin's mismanagement in the first 10 matches the squad was good enough to finish in the play-offs last season.

At no point were the team from last season good enough for the play offs .
We were awful .
You can contrive and spin as much as you like but the fact is we were c**p

All of these signings point to a serious change in style next season. Lines, Watson, Adams are all players that like to pass the ball. Granted we will have a big man up top in Smith but I think its fair to assume we will see some decent football this season.


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Irchy cob on June 05, 2019, 14:43:23 pm
I should think Harry Smith is licking his lips - Adams is a great signing. Having said that how he left us the first time to be closer to his family only to go up to Carlisle is still odd and I hope that coming back down south isnít going to become an issue. The fact that he wants to link up again with KC says a lot to all of the Curle naysayers.

Nicky Adams might be the end of D Powell.

Not convinced of that and there still might be another twist. As I reported some weeks ago, Cornell did receive interest from another club. He might be sold on. He also might not be happy to return to being a No.2.

Out of our recruits, I'd have thought that McCormack, Lines, and Adams would have been on competitive wages to get them (and arguably no more than O'Toole or Buchanan would have been on). With the money from KVV and Crooks being sold on, I'd be surprised if we're getting close to danger for it. Also, unlike the Premiership, 'Turnover' can include gifts from the owners and injections of equity (but not loans from the Directors), so it's pretty easy to get around (hence Crawley, Fleetwood, Salford now I'd assume), so wages would have to be astronomical to cause a problem with FFP.

Probably be more concerned about the sustainability of the spending going forward.

Hoskins wasn't a regular starter under Wilder though. Also he was a different player, as then he still had the ability to run with the ball and power past players. During that time, as well as under Page, he used to cause the opposition so many problems and was a terrific option off the bench. He has lost that part of his game now though, unfortunately. This is probably the effect of previous injuries combined with a possible drop off (even if only slight) in pace with age.

Austin/Curle have seemingly valued his energy and work-rate as well as his adaptability to different positions/roles - RWB, RW, RM, AM, IF, ST. Off the top of my head I can only think of Powell as a player from last years squad with that degree of adaptability. It's this ability to fit into different roles in different systems that has made him a valuable player, for Curle at least, I think.

RH was used a few times as a sub by CW which to me suggests there was a fitness issue. He had fitness issues at SU and Oxford. We all would love to see him return but probable high wages and dodgy fitness  are not good companions. Anyway why do have such prejudicial views on Hoskins and Cornell? Itís really quite unlike you.

KC signed Devitt for Carlisle and assuming they had a good working relationship and that we are indeed interested I would have thought that he would prefer playing for a manager he already knew. This was a reason Adams gave for joining us again. I know Devitt is use to the considerable away travel involved with playing for Plymouth as it is similar to Carlisle but our location could also work in our favour.

What about Hallam Hope?

KC absolutely loves him...if Swindon are in the mix to sign him surely we are too?
Would obviously help if we can shift either Waters &/or Bunney...

Great interview when KC signed him for Carlisle...

https://www.carlisleunited.co.uk/news/2017/july/hopeinterview3jul17/ (https://www.carlisleunited.co.uk/news/2017/july/hopeinterview3jul17/)

United manager Keith Curle finally got his man when striker Hallam Hope put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal this summer having been chased by the Carlisle boss almost from the moment his 2015/16 season loan spell at Brunton Park came to a conclusion.

We caught up with the forward over the weekend to get his thoughts on his move north from Bury, speaking first about a memorable quote which came from the gaffer when the signing was announced which revealed that heíd pursued the Hope signature more than heíd chased his ex-wife, ex-partner and current girlfriend combined.

ďThereís a funny side to the comment he made but itís always good to know when someone really wants you to be here,Ē he said. ďItís good for me and my confidence and it sets me up well.

ďI was laughing when I read it, and a few of the other lads were as well. Like I said, the best club to play for is one where the manager wants you and where he also has confidence in the abilities you have. It really does give you a boost.Ē

And on a more serious note the United boss also spoke about his desire to see the centre forward play in his natural position.

ďWhen I was younger centre forward was the position I played when I came through the youth set-up at Everton,Ē he commented. ďI joined Bury as a striker and thatís where I feel most effective. Itís where I want to play and itís definitely my preferred position, but obviously Iíll also play in other positions if it helps the team.

ďItís always good to be able to play in different positions and I am more than willing to do that. It comes down to whatís best for everyone at the time. Whatever happens Iíll always run and work hard for the team.

ďHopefully thatíll be in the position I want to be playing in and Iíll be scoring a few goals as well. Iím just looking forward to getting on with it.

ďItís nice to see a lot of familiar faces round the place. Itís a good club, I get on well with everyone and I think I probably come here maybe having something to prove to myself. I want to have a good season, get a good run of games under my belt and hopefully get some of those goals Iíve talked about.Ē

Having had interest from other clubs following his release from Gigg Lane he told us that his decision had been made easier with him having already seen what Carlisle has to offer.

ďItís always easier to come to a place where you know how the team wants to play and you know the surroundings,Ē he commented. ďI know the staff really well and I know some of the players, which is good. I do feel as if Iím wanted and that was a big part of persuading me to choose Carlisle United.

ďThe fans have played their part in that because so many of them have messaged me already and wished me all the best. I now have two years at a club where I can really start to look forward and set some plans in place. I know that we all want to go one better than the club did last season and I want to be part of that.

ďThe dressing room is amazing because itís the same kind of atmosphere from when I was here last time. Everyone was really close and that hasnít changed. We all went out for a meal last Wednesday night and we found ourselves needing a table for twelve, which is fantastic.

ďItís really good that Kelvin [Etuhu] has come here at the same time because we get along really well. Weíre quite close and I have to say, heís a really good player. Heíll bring a lot to the team.Ē

Looking back at how he had spent his formative years in the game with arguably one of the Premier Leagueís biggest clubs, we wondered how a young lad from Manchester had ended up on Merseyside, particularly when it was widely known that a well-known local club was also chasing his signature.

ďI was playing in a tournament in Manchester when I was 12-years-old and there were quite a few scouts there,Ē he said. ďThere was one from Manchester City and one from Everton, and I ended up having to make a choice between the two. I went for trials at both clubs and the aura about the place at Everton was superb.

ďIt was a really welcoming environment and, looking back, I think I made the right choice. I learned a lot and it was a bit of a dream come true for a young lad to be able to do it. I was there for ten years in the end and it gave me an excellent grounding.

ďI got some good loan experience with Northampton and Sheffield Wednesday and I had a really good spell with Bury, which probably eventually led to the permanent move to join them. All of those spells gave me different challenges in different environments and I think that helps to progress you as a player and a person.Ē

His three year stay with the Shakers came to a close at the end of last season but he insisted again that the time was right to seek pastures new.

ďThere are no regrets or sadness at leaving,Ē he said. ďItís another place where Iíve learned a lot from being there and I had some good times, particularly with the promotion we got. I met some really good people, itís a great club, but itís time for a new challenge now.

ďIím here with Carlisle United to set new targets and one of those is for us to get promoted. On a personal level I just want to score as many goals and play as many games as I can.Ē

With KC saying hes looking at 4 more signings, its will be interesting to see where he still wants to strengthen.

I cant see another GK keeping in. With both Cornell and Arnold fighting for the number 1 spot. We have the young kid Lashley as 3rd GK, they might decide to ship him out on loan after the new year to get some experience.

I do think we need another CB and a RB/RWB in. I might get ridiculed for this but I would be happy to keep Joe Bunney here. I think he could offer competition for Joe Martin at LB if KC was to play 4 at the back or (which id prefer) I believe he would do well as a LW if we was to go 352. All depends on if he wants to stay here I suppose.

We have already brought in a few MD so far but Id like to see another come in, hopefully Jamie Devitt. Apart from that Im happy with our balance of defensive and attacking midfielders. In my list of players Ive included Matty Warburton as a midfielder and although I say 352 Id like to see 3 play behind a sole striker. So Smith up top, then Adams, Warburton and a LW behind which Im guessing will be Hoskins. 2 central midfielders for me would be Lines, Watson and McCormack so far.

Up top, again I think we are sorted unless wither Williams or Morias were to go. I think Harry Smith will be our main striker as already said, with Matty Warburton behind. But you could easily replace Warburton with Williams or Morias and go with 2 up top very easily.

So back to the 4 signings, I think a CB, a RB/RWB and another AM/LW or both.

Whats everyone's opinions?


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: memyhead on June 13, 2019, 10:29:41 am
If we can shift both Bunney & Waters it will help free up some more budget (both will still be on L1 wages) which will enable us to bring in better quality. The 4 key positions I think KC is looking to strengthen are...

RWB/RCB
LWB/LCB
LW/RW
FOX IN THE BOX (Hallum Hope?)

Obviously, if AP leaves then would need to replace him with another dominant CB


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019

right back
right sided centre half

not sure on the rest - might depend on who he can ship out.

would he sign one more striker if he is stuck with williams and morais?!

whoever he signs - i would like them to have pace as that looks like one thing we are still missing

I expect Bradley to go out for the start of the season if he's not in the reckoning for the 1st team. One other youth team player is attracting interest from a National North team already. I expect either/ or Williams and Morias to go.

Walsall fans were almost equally divided on whether Kieran Morris should be kept or let go. As Manwork says he joined Tranmere on loan in January and started all 3 of their play off games before being subbed after 60 -70 minutes. However, he still scored more goals from midfield for Walsall than any other player last season.
It appears that he was not doing as well under manager Keats (now sacked) as under previous manger Smith.Likely to score an absolute screamer from outside the box or clear the stand, this could be said of many division 2 players.
Some comments on Walsall forum similar to those on our forum regarding Daniel Powell but many thought he could still do a job in division 2.

If you havenít performed in division 1 , itís unlikely you will pull up any trees in division 2 either .
Wide players are notoriously inconsistent though and so anyone thatís any good will be snapped up by bigger clubs .
The lad we had on loan from Forest I thought was ok

When you have inside information , you canít reveal everything all of the time because it can scupper the deal or sometimes things change at the last minute .
It can also be betraying confidence .
This time last season I had first hand information - some comes off and some doesnít .
The important thing at the moment is who is leaving because this frees up budget for better players .

"Decent enough but has a mistake or two in him just like most League 2 defenders, but I wouldíve happily still had him here."

"Quick, strong, good in the air for his size. Can play at CB but is best at RB. Would have liked to have kept him but he probably didnít want to be second-choice RB behind Luke Hendrie, who I think is better.
Donít expect to be playing out from the back with him though because he is rubbish at passing and very slow in thought."

Two assessments from Grimsby fans...

Two assessments from Grimsby fans...

Opinions on him after he rejected a contract seem generally positive:

'RHJ was outstanding, in my opinion, when deployed on the right of a back three.  Not only did his pace and ability to get in front of the man give us something extra as opposed to the traditional 6'2 just-head-it types at this level, but he gave us a real threat when overlapping down the right flank.

At the very worst he was good cover across all defensive positions.  Disappointed he's gone but seeing as he's said he's decided to leave, it looks very much like we offered him a deal and he wants to try something new.  Big loss in my opinion.'


That's probably the most favourable view of him I've found. The general consensus is that he is a strong athlete with potential but could improve with his technical ability though.

LWB: Martin is a wing back as is Bunney.
RWB: Hall-Johnson is a wing back, C.McWilliams is a RB.

Adams is primarily a winger who can play wing back. Turnbull is a CB who can play in midfield.

Bunney may well not be here by the window's end, but at the moment he is our player.

Seems fine to me.

The reason I question the balance is because I interpreted Martin as primarily a left back that could get forward as opposed to a wing back from what the Stevenage fans said . Iím not sure he has the pace for a wing back . Happy to be proved wrong though .
Adams and Hall- Johnson are right wing backs in the traditional sense .
MacWilliams I think will be go out on loan . Turnbull is not a wing back if he fills in on the left side . Bunney wonít be here .
At the minute it looks unbalanced but I think a pacey left side player will come in .

We are currently short of one , if not two centre halves .

Surely this will be the next signing along with some pace down the left .

Bunney will not be here next season (out on perm or loan),

I would have thought that 1 and 2 could be resolved by signing Goode who is very versatile, Iím guessing that the fact he still has a year left at Scunnie might be a sticking point (assuming he actually wants to come here) but it looks like he is down the pecking order.

Port Vale could be close to one deal for a League Two striker on a free transfer having been in advanced talks...

Could be Waters again as they were in for him last Summer but he turned down the deal according to DA at the time

Both Waterts & Bunney need to get their agents working overtime to get them fixed up elsewhere as neither will get a look in with us.

Northampton Town pair David Buchanan and Luke Coddington have agreed to join the Spireites when their contracts expire at the end of the month.

Buchanan is a 33-year-old left-back while 24-year-old Coddington is a goalkeeper who started his career in Middlesbroughís academy and represented England at Under-19 level. They have both agreed two-year contracts, effective from July 1.

Buchanan has made over 550 senior appearances in a career which saw him play for Preston North End, Tranmere Rovers, Hamilton Academical and Bury before signing for Northampton in 2015. He was also capped 15 times by Northern Ireland at Under-21 level.

"I'm glad it's all done and dusted now and I can't wait to get started," said Buchanan. "I'm someone who gives nothing but 100 per cent every time I put the shirt on."

Coddington joined Huddersfield Town after leaving Boro before signing for Northampton in 2017. He has had several loan spells, including two stints at Wrexham.

Coddington said: "It happended quite quickly and as soon as I heard Chesterfield were interested, I wanted to come here. The stadium and the facilities are brilliant."

Thing I find strange is that we have lost another member of staff involved with the academy. This time it's the 'head of academy coaching' - not to be confused with the 'head of the academy. We also lost the 'lead development coach. In the space of 3 months, we have lost 3 long term members of staff that have been integral to the success of the academy. Given the current success, shouldn't we be doing more to hold on to these people?
Following on from the above, the academy head [ Trevor Gould's replacement] and the chief scout are leaving. This is a worrying trend.

The replacement could be an improvement and good news though ......

Could we be the other "fourth-tier outfit" after him? Swap deal including bother Waters & Bunney would be nice!  ;D

https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/sport/17720119.two-clubs-vying-for-carlisle-utds-hallam-hope/ (https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/sport/17720119.two-clubs-vying-for-carlisle-utds-hallam-hope/)

Two clubs are vying for Carlisle United forward Hallam Hope, the club have said.

Last season's 15-goal top scorer is in demand and could leave Brunton Park before the start of next season.

United, though, have told the frontman he will only be allowed to go if a bidding club meets their valuation.

They have already turned down bids but interest in the Barbados international is unlikely to have gone away.

League Two rivals Swindon have been linked with Hope this summer but are not the only party thought to be showing interest.

Another fourth-tier outfit are believed to be in the race with a club from League One also monitoring developments.

Director of football David Holdsworth would not be drawn on the identity of the bidding clubs.

But he said Hope, 25, had expressed a wish to play at a higher level.

"Right now weíve got two clubs trying to take Hallam," said Holdsworth.

"Iíve been on the phone constantly through the summer, we've had bids for him, and a second club has entered the race in the past few days.

"We have made it clear with each player that we will evaluate bids that come through the door."

Hope is under contract with the Blues for the 2019/20 season.

"I've had Hallam on the phone and he wants to play at a higher level," Holdsworth added.

"He will only do so when it's right for Carlisle United. The days of us giving into clubs and giving [players] away cheaply are not going to happen any more. I have told his agent that every day.

"I respect Hallam. He has got a contract with us, which he entered into in good faith.

"He will play for us in pre-season and in the forthcoming season if we don't get the value we afford him."

Should Hope leave in the short term it would leave Carlisle short of recognised frontmen.

The Blues are believed to be in talks with striker targets on both a permanent and loan basis.

Amongst all the comment on definite and potential transfer news at the Cobblers is it not worth remembering that the previous chief scour appointed by Thomas was in place during the two forgettable seasons we had before Curle arrived which saw us sign some real dross that we are still trying to get rid off. At least so far Simon Tracey seems to be making a better fist of things than his predecessor.

My understanding from what I was told is the people leaving are moving on to bigger and better things.  Is that not just a fact of life and we are to an extent a victim of our own success?  Unless of course you know different if so say it.

As for the Academy Head is he not moving to work with someone he has previous close ties with?

Kieran Scarff is academy head who took over from Trevor Gould. He's working his notice. Chief Scout is Simon Tracey who is also working notice. Head of academy Coaching is/ was Lee Garlick. He's either left or still working notice. Lead development phase coach was Mark Lyons. He left a few weeks ago.

How about them moving on to better things? Lyons to Leicester. Garlick is an FA mentor amongst other things. Scarff has gone back to where he lives and a manager he's worked with previously. The only strange one is Tracey. However, he did move down here to be closer to his family, so maybe he's found somewhere even closer.

Can you shed any light on why Tracey is leaving as he's been massive part of the recruitment process i'd assume? Let's hope Melville ain't waiting by the phone!

The beauty of football forums during silly season.  I'm sure Mathius will clarify his earlier comments and explain what he means by the club doing more to keep them.  Maybe some people like Vintage has should ask questions rather than just take everything as gospel.

No idea what's happening with Simon Tracey but couldn't care less as I'm sure there will be a perfectly valid reason.

Mark Lyons didn't leave a few weeks ago he left at the end of January to go to Leicester!

I was told Scarff is going to Posh to link up with Ferguson again following their time together at Doncaster.

Lee Garlick announced he was leaving back at the start of May and was even linking the NTFC job seeking his replacement telling everyone what a great club it is to work for.

A number of reasons. I'm just concerned as I don't think it's productive. Let's hope B & S is right and we end up with replacements better than what we have lost. There's one or two internally that maybe deserve a chance to step up.

Richie Bennett signed elsewhere, so that's another Carlisle connection off the list.

Interesting to see where we strengthen next, but guess it is reliant on Bunney/Waters moving on now.

Expect we line up like this at the moment:

                           Cornell/Arnold

                    J.Williams Pierre Turnbull

          Adams                                     Martin

                   Watson McCormack Lines

                                   Morais
                          Smith


Bench: McWilliams, Hall-Johnson, Pollock, A.Williams, Warburton, Hoskins, Roberts


Not expecting Warburton to start unless he does wonders in pre-season, McCormack will be rotated with McWilliams to keep him fit. Perhaps lacks a bit of pace but we look very solid and have genuinely good delivery into the big man up top with Adams/Lines. Hoping Morias is fit this season and gets a run in the team, think he can get 10-15 goals at this level if he does.

Hoping Daldy/Hughes/Newell/Lashley get loan deals at a decent level.

Gutted to see Pierre go, he was head and shoulders our best player last season and (even allowing for some of the good signings we've made) was likely to be again next season.

A big signing required now, in every sense of the word. The only positive I can take from this is it sounds like it's been rumbling on for ages so I presume Curle has plans in place.

To be fair thatís probably what the Wycombe fans were saying 2 years ago. We now need 2 decent centre backs to cover the squad - I wonít be particularly chuffed if we end up making do with our 5ft 8in right sided defender as cover.

I know there are lies, damned lies and statistics, however if you put any stock into xG or anything like that he was heads and shoulders are best player last year.

https://eflnumbers.wordpress.com/

Our goals difference per 90 was just slightly positive with him in the team, and massively negative without. He deserves his chance up a level, however getting his replacement right is absolutely crucial if we want any success next year.

Can't say I find KC's interview concerning AP's departure on the Chron convincing. KC says he has targets but he has clearly been aware of AP's intentions for a number of weeks. Why haven't we made a move already? He also states the deal is a good one for the club. really? A better one would have been to keep him; especially with our track record of underselling players.

As said before..big loss for us after last seasons performances and will miss his goals too...However he didn't exactly set the world alight when we were in Div 1...Be interesting to see how he fares now

That season I thought he was one of our best 2-3 players before his injury.

He isn't really going to bring in a replacement before the player leaves. I'd be more concerned if the replacement(s) are not here before the training camp.. or worse still the Walsall game.

really?!

he played in a relegation team and then an average league 2 team.
he made mistakes and gave goals away. he will be replaced with an good league 2 centre half on a lot less money and we wont miss him at all.


He missed over half of the relegation season through injury and he had been excellent before then and was deservedly player of the season last year. I agree though that he had his flaws and could be liable to mistakes and that at this level he is replaceable.

Does having McCormack in front of the back four/five allow one of the youngsters to step up alongside Turnbull? They have got to prove themselves at some point otherwise whatís the point? Not that I am suggesting this was the preference or anything?

Sad to see AP leave but like its been said already looks as though its been coming. I think we are to CB light and hope that will be address, its also worth remembering that this is the point in the market were  targets are becoming available that previously were not and KC did say a while ago that he wanted to keep squad places open for that very reason.

If we are playing three at the back , which I suspect we will most of the time , we are also looking for ball playing centre backs which makes the job doubly difficult .
If you canít distribute from the back under that system it doesnít work .

I think Goode would suffice, I am surprised so many don't think he is very good. He cant spray the ball about but he does carry the ball forward better than most centrebacks we have had in recent times.

Cheltenham clearly get something out of Waters we have failed to find . Thatís a failing of the management.
Bunney was never played at wing back and we look like thatís how we are setting up .
I think they will both leave but itís not the end of the world if they donít

 Bunney is a better wing back than left back. Iíd be quite happy if he stayed and was given a chance. We might have some good competition for that position going forward. Depends what Curlio sees over the next couple of weeks.


Title: Re: Summer Transfer Rumours 2019
Post by: Boot and shoe on June 27, 2019, 08:37:07 am
KC in his last interview says he needs ď one or possibly two centre backsĒ.
Currently we have Turnbull and two youth players plus part timers that fill in .
If we are playing three at the back , surely we need three more centre halves.
If he is genuinely only going to sign one or maybe two more we are looking very vulnerable defensively .

Just to be devils advocate if he did so well at Cheltenham then how come they donít exactly seem to be falling over themselves to sign him - same with Rochdale and Bunney? The main thing it comes down to is contract and wages - Iím pretty sure Bunney must be on a ridiculous (for his ability and quality) contract, not so sure about Waters as I think he came in pre ďChinese moneyĒ.

We may also be asking a fee if we paid money for them both and need to recover.
There may be agents involved and the buying clubs donít deal with them as well.
All sorts of reasons other than wages which may be a big factor as you point out.
Bunney certainly has the pace we lack on the left hand side .

Think the treatment towards bunney was pretty poor to be honest. Having spoke to him on a couple of occasions I felt for him. Signed by JFH promising him to play left wing back only to start as a left back. By his own admission he is not a left back. At Rochdale he scored 9 in 11 games as a striker and then got injured. On his return from injury just to get minutes under him he played a reserve game at left wing back. Created 2 goals and then made that position his own. That was only 1 season before joining us so obviously was still learning the position. Think it says a lot that he has been playing regular league football last season. I for 1 would be pleased if he stays and proved many of our supporters wrong. However donít think he will and good luck to him

I agree about the treatment of Bunney, it's no wonder he felt 'homesick'. I always like to point out that during his spell in the side our goals against record actually improved and then got worse again after he was dropped for Buchs following JFH's sacking. He's got pace and a quality left foot and I think would be a top player at this level. I'd like to see him stay, but he'll probably be loaned out again I imagine.

Bunney is an enigma.

If I was the manager tomorrow, Id tell him straight...'you are going nowhere, we will review the situation in January. You've got one year left on your contract, we need a left sided player who can cross the ball. You will compete for either a wing back position or left side of midfield'.

Under the right guidance, I reckon he could be brilliant for us next season if used correctly. And negates the necessity to bring in a left sided reinforcement.

If we were to get an offer in the meantime, to recoup the fee paid, then fair enough, sell, If he doesn't really want to be here. But I see zero point in sending him out on loan, given that in a years time he would become a free agent in any case. We'd be better off playing him, with a view to reviewing the situation in January. Unless he's a bad influence, which I very much doubt is the case.

Itís not just Bunney; itís several other players as well like Hoskins,Cornell and  vV; others too! KvV is an interesting one; harangued  by many at the end of relegation season. Then as the last season progressed there was a dramatic change in opinion. However the abusive comments are from the usual few suspects!

Also agree. Find some of the attitudes towards bunney very strange. He played 12 games for us. Most of them in a position he had never played before. People need to ask why he is playing regulary at a higher level than we are. If he does stay then give the guy a chance.

according to wiki he played less than half the games last season - is that regular?

i find it hard to believe he had never played left back.

also, you still need to be able to defend as a wing back - he cant - he also isnt that quick and he is too lightweight.

other than that, definitely keep him - not wasting a wage at all!

waters - 1st touch of an elephant - bin him off too.

Shame he was crap defensively which a must have quality for defenders.

IMO His issues defensively were more to do with a lack of understanding of the role he had been asked to perform rather than a lack of ability. After he had had a few shakey moments 4-5 games into his spell the crowd turned on him, it was shocking and it's little wonder his game began to suffer.

https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/sc***horpe-northampton-and-wimbledon-linked-with-fight-for-23-year-old-hitman/ (https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/sc***horpe-northampton-and-wimbledon-linked-with-fight-for-23-year-old-hitman/)

Link not working due to spelling of SCVNTHORPE!  ;D

Hamilton Academical striker Mickel Miller is attracting the attention of a trio of EFL clubs, as reported by the Grimsby Telegraph.

The 23-year-old bagged five times in the SPFL last season and has fallen onto the radar of AFC Wimbledon, as well as League Two duo Sc***horpe United and Northampton Town.

Heís the name I heard when I was told about Hall-Johnson

according to wiki he played less than half the games last season - is that regular?

i find it hard to believe he had never played left back.

also, you still need to be able to defend as a wing back - he cant - he also isnt that quick and he is too lightweight.

other than that, definitely keep him - not wasting a wage at all!

waters - 1st touch of an elephant - bin him off too.


Bunney missed a lot of games due to injury last season.

He had played at left back roughly 40 times before joining us, but how many of those were as a wing-back, which is how he was used by JFH, I  don't know.

Before that he had played as a left and sometimes right winger and also as a centre forward, which up to 2-3 years ago were his specialist positions.

I would have much rather have had him playing left back/wing back than either of Buchanan or Powell last season that's for sure.

Having said that, even though I think he could be excellent for us next season, he could be on a fair wage and if he was sold it may free up funds for 2 more players.

Waters' touch is decent enough for L2 IMO, and he's got a better footballing brain than Hoskins as well. He lacks the physical qualities KC wants though IMO, so I expect him to move on.

No he wasnít played mainly as a wing back by JFH . Bizarrely he was played as a left back and when we converted to wing backs he played Buchanan instead .

Perhaps my recollection is incorrect, but I'm sure Bunney was used as a wing back in at least some matches and he certainly didn't feature again once JFH had been sacked.

Curle in the Chron says we need one, maybe two CB's. Says to me that Jay Williams is getting a starting role if that is the case.

Bunney is an enigma.

If I was the manager tomorrow, Id tell him straight...'you are going nowhere, we will review the situation in January. You've got one year left on your contract, we need a left sided player who can cross the ball. You will compete for either a wing back position or left side of midfield'.

Under the right guidance, I reckon he could be brilliant for us next season if used correctly. And negates the necessity to bring in a left sided reinforcement.

If we were to get an offer in the meantime, to recoup the fee paid, then fair enough, sell, If he doesn't really want to be here. But I see zero point in sending him out on loan, given that in a years time he would become a free agent in any case. We'd be better off playing him, with a view to reviewing the situation in January. Unless he's a bad influence, which I very much doubt is the case.


Great post

Wouldnít be unhappy with J Williams getting more of a look in, also hoping that maybe we go for a back 4, I know people have said Adams played wing back for Carlisle but I donít see it working well.

Exactly. Well, we conceded an average of 1.3 goals a game with Bunney in the team and 2 goals a game for the remainder of the season after Buchanan was bought back into the fold. That reminds me, has Buchs found another league club yet?

Itís not just Bunney; itís several other players as well like Hoskins,Cornell and  vV; others too! KvV is an interesting one; harangued  by many at the end of relegation season. Then as the last season progressed there was a dramatic change in opinion. However the abusive comments are from the usual few suspects! Would vV have stayed if the abuse was less vociferous and above all repetitive? Please

When have Hoskins or Cornell received booing and abuse anything like Bunney did in his first short spell? KVV and Taylor received a little bit, but not at the level that Bunney received.

When have Hoskins or Cornell ever been quite as bad as Joe was in his brief spell as left back? The 'abuse' you talk of will always be proportionate to the perceived ineptitude displayed and Joe put in some truly shocking performances.

If you look very carefully at the latest photos for today there is a picture of Alan McCormack passing the ball, look in the background, a white player has their hand up to their face. Who is he?

Also, a picture of Joe Martin running at possibly Morgan Roberts and in the background is a black player, looks quite tall?

I don't recognise either, maybe a couple of trialists?

I agree with this - the majority of the new signings have been on the face of it very positive (with the notable exception of one of todayís incomings by the sound of it) but we are lacking pace. We are also going to have to properly replace Pierre who has left a big hole in the middle of the defence, the other one of todayís incomings is a welcome addition but not in my opinion a natural replacement for the big man. I also hope we hold onto Williams and Morias.

i confirm - all, on paper are good signings so far - but we are still missing that element of pace.

however, i do think Goode is a more than adequate replacement for AP.

Vadaine Oliver would be a disappointing signing to say the least. Released by Morecambe last season and never done very much for anyone.
Regarding pace - Adams covers that off on the right hand side ( Hoskins for his frailties also has pace ) .
Bunney has pace on the left and itís incorrect to say that he doesnít but we have none if he goes on that side of the pitch .

I'd assume Oliver would just be the nasty/nuisance back up for if Smith gets injured or suspended...

He's never been prolific but could be a decent foil for others...

Can't be any worse than Sordell...He's still only 27 too & a better option than the rumoured Dagnall!

Hopefully this also means Waters off rather than Morias/Williams leaving

I think the only similarity between Oliver and Williams is that they both have 2 legs - weíre talking a guy who has been released by morecambe and York in recent years and when he came on as a sub last season his own fans booed him  (he also scored 5 in 54 for them). The only reason he would come in is that he is cheap and presumably the more expensive Williams would make way.

Oliver is not the same sort of player as Smith and would not be a back up.
I would also much rather keep Waters than have Oliver but he is probably very cheap.
Itís this type of player that makes me doubt our credentials and at the moment I have us as play off hopefuls only .

not saying he is any good, but if we signed him he would currently be 4th choice behind smith, morais and williams

so he should be a cheap option.

if any of morais / williams left then we would hope they are then replaced!

I think we need to have a defence in place before we can assign ourselves play-off contenders at this stage. They can't all by Nicky Adams caliber, but I would think we need a very good centre back at the very least.

And who knows, I've never seen him play, maybe Olivier has a renaissance under us and transforms into a good player. Worse players have done it. If he comes in and Williams leaves though, it does feel a little Bayo/Platt again.

Thatís my feeling entirely, Iím not against Jay Williams getting more of a chance but Iíd rather he get eased in gradually next season as/when required. If we go with 3 centre backs then we are definitely 1 short (assuming Goode is announced later/tomorrow).

If you're playing 3 established centre-backs, they're not going to stay fully healthy for the full season, so you can still bring two new centre-backs in and have enough games for some of the Academy products to play a part.

Laughable stuff. So you're judging the summer business so far on a comparison between Oliver and Maynard, the former of which will probably be a bench player (despite what you claim) and the other a sure-fire starter? How about using the signings of Adams, McCormack, Lines, Watson, Martin, Smith, or Warburton etc. as a comparison?

Wtf are you cr*pping on about ?
Iím not judging anything on a single signing at all.
However I do think Mansfield have shown real intent with the signing of Maynard and in general have a very good squad that I think is better than ours currently.
Yes , we have made some good signings and some tenuous ones . Much depends on who else comes in but at this moment in time we have enough to challenge for the play offs if we get 2 more good centre halves .

Who else have Mansfield signed - the only one Iíve seen is Maynard (and it will be interesting to see how he goes in a team without all of the attacking weapons that he had at bury) and I would have assumed that they lost all of the loan players that did so well for them last season? Plus theyíve got John Dempster who is a complete managerial novice and that could go either way.

Solidly built, blood and guts player who'll leave everything out there (a reason for his popularity) but prone to make at least one howler per game from the evidence of last season. Not a suitable replacement for AP in my opinion.

Come on Irchy, you're normally more positive than that mate. He will probably be back-up target man for Smith. My only concern is do we lose a striker because of this signing. I did ask ntfclad if any strikers are leaving but he didn't respond or maybe he doesn't know.

Youíre right mate, Iím probably overreacting (but his record is pretty ordinary to say the least) - like you say hopefully heíll be (very) back up but it seems a bit extravagant to have Smith, Williams, morias and Oliver when thereís a decent chance weíll only be playing one up front. I think ntfclad has also said weíre still interested in Mikel Miller (but he did say he can play on the left attacking) so something in me says that one of the current forwards will leave. I still think we need to go all out for another quality, experienced centre back as it will be needed in this league.

Maybe Goode, Oliver, Miller (if he can play off the left) and another centre back? If Bunney was to leave by some miracle then we would need another left sided defender/wing back. As we keep banging on about there doesnít seem to be much in the way of pace throughout the squad. Also I donít know what KCís views on loans is like.

I have been impressed by Goode tbh, it might be a case of just needing the right team to settle. No one rated Diamond when he arrived and I loved him.

Lots of people thought Diamond was a great signing.

He will do replace Taylor.

Pierre' s replacement needs to be better quality.

I think the previous poster was being sarcastic and he obviously doesnít rate Goode. Iím a fan but Iíve got to say thatís a big contract (and I hope not too much was spent on a fee) for a player that Sc***horpe and their fans clearly didnít rate. As Iíve said before I hope this isnít the Pierre replacement and that another centre back is on the way.

I donít mind Goode to be fair, just not overly wowed by him. A fee and a three-year deal seemed a little excessive at first glance, but heís only 23 which leaves plenty of room to develop. No qualms with the signing.

As for Oliver, he wanted to leave Morecambe to be closer to his family, rather than being released as such.

https://www.morecambefc.com/news/2019/may/retained-and-released-list/ (https://www.morecambefc.com/news/2019/may/retained-and-released-list/)

The goalscoring record is always going to catch the eye and bring about negativity. But heís a physical presence, can hold the ball up well and is a nuisance to defenders. This is by no means a classic highlight reel but it shows what heís about and what he can offer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_5hyNU0CEI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_5hyNU0CEI)

I imagine heíll provide back-up to Smith, but either way he can be a decent foil for a strike partner/number 10.

ďHe will add competition and depth to the attacking unit. Over the course of a season you will need different options, you need to pose a different threat and have more than one plan up your sleeve. You need different ways of scoring goals and winning games, and Vadaine offers an alternative threat for us.

ďYou need to have a batch of strikers who can stay fresh and sharp over a long season and in order to achieve that you need to have competition and options among the strikers and he provides that."

Obviously not first name on the team-sheet, but hey-ho, I'm not going to be negative by any of our players until they've had a chance for a few games. I just hope that if he makes a mistake first thing the fans don't get on his back and give him as much of a chance as Smith.

I read that as though we're not looking at selling any of our current strikers?

Adams whipping in crosses to Smith and Oliver could be formidable. Happy to wait and see what he offers in our new setup before judging.

Also, as I said before I like what I saw of Goode. People keep going on about mistakes but I can't really think of any of the top of my head, seems to be a more a Sc***horpe opinion. He's strong, and he'll put his body on the line. Can also pick out a pass, which is obviously an upgrade on Taylor on that regard.

He's not going to replace Pierre, but that's because statistically Pierre was head and shoulder above everyone else in the squad last year, so that's a tough job for most anyway.

Edit: He also had a storming season on football manager 2018, so that's probably all affected my opinion as well. Just need to bring in Ilias Chair from QPR and we're sorted.

No worries mate, I was only teasing - it is a bit creative though to make out it was his decision to leave morecambe to be closer to his family when as far as I can tell he has been northern based all his career! Iím prepared to give anyone the benefit of the doubt but I have big reservations.

Be interested to know how many goals he gave away, getting caught the wrong side or beaten in the air. Also at least 3 pens I can remember him conceeding.

I'm sure he will be adequate in a 3, but we need a leader/captain type to play alongside.

Goode will be better than Pierre in a year or so and is already at his level, just doesn't carry the ball on the attack like Pierre did on occasions.

Wasn't Yeovil at home the 2-2 draw, thought that was Joe Powell that gave it away?

We need a statto! (or can someone point me to a decent stats website)

Really hoping we get another decent CB in, but for me we could manage on what we have (Turnbull, Goode, J.Williams, Hall-Johnson, Hughes).

Because Williams was often pushed out of the side by Hoskins and Powell last season? 39 appearances, 13 of them from the bench.....didn't seem like he was one of Keiths favs....and now KC has brought in his own players its only right to speculate that Williams might get squeezed out.

If he does get squeezes out , he is the only proven goalscorer at this level in the squad and so itís a big risk.

Junior Morias and Billy Waters are not going to Spain. Apparently, there is a limit on the numbers that can go. Didn't both of them stay at home last year aswell for differing reasons. Morias to get fit here and Waters to talk to Port Vale.
Why would both of them play today, seems pointless if not in KCís plans? Was this a decision made after the game?

As has been said before itís one thing to ostracise a player or two but another to expect them to leave when theyíve still got a year left - Iím assuming that both waters and morias are on good money so the chances of them finding new clubs isnít a foregone conclusion.

In fairness CW has said that the door isn't closed to these players but they are limited with numbers and want to take players in various position instead of overloading in one position.

Agreed. His goals-to-game ratio is decent and he offers something a bit different from Smith and Oliver.

However, I think what we're seeing is that Curle - like most of his predecessors - favours his own men. The fact that he was looking at Tyson - essentially an older version of Morais - also speaks volumes.

I take your point but waters and morias (and Williams and Bunney) are all sitting on at least a year left of what must be pretty decent contracts - itís not like by leaving them out of tours or making them train with the kids is going to magically mean another club will come in and create space for us to bring in players we actually want.

I don't...

Thought he was poor on Saturday & in every pre season press shot he looks uninterested...

Fact is he was signed for a fee on decent L1 wages by the clown JFH & no one is prepared to take him off our hands at the moment...he doesn't want to be here but is contracted and as we are short on left sided players so he's gone to Spain...

Hope it works out for him & the club one way or another before the season starts as we can't be carrying passengers.

I saw a very interested and upbeat Joe Bunney on Saturday. Bonding with his team mates and coaches, having some banter, looking relaxed and even being hugged by a member of the coaching staff. He certainly didn't look dis-interested and took on board the instructions. We are in need of a left sided wide player.

I honestly think Bunney would be a decent addition on the left , as long as he doesnít play traditional left back . He can even play as a striker if we had injuries .
I think we should give him a chance in his rightful position which JFH hardly did .

Its hard to defend the club/KC from a distance, BUT we don't know what the in's and out's are. At the end of the day, Morais may have a trial lined up or something, and if KC wants him gone then that may help the cause. Just as an example.

I like Morais. But an issue I think is fair to mention, is that with him you've got to play a very certain way. Almost like you've got to build your attack round him. He's not a target man, he's not the nippy strike partner associated with a Forester/Howard type traditional forward line. He's not great with his back to goal. His main attribute is his ability to finish which is 2nd to none at this level, but as far as fitting into a team/style of play, its more difficult.

I've little doubt if he left, he'd bang 20 goals for another team in this division, assuming he stayed fit. But would that be to the detriment to that team as a whole? Think about how you'd utilise him if you were the manager, I have and I honestly cant come up with an answer!

TBF I looked a couple of days ago and the cheapest flights were £435 return, if it was unknown if he would be fit then that might have played a part. It does seem odd though. Morais might be on a ridiculous wage though that could be used to add balance to the squad. He seems to struggle with fitness and if a similar foward could be brought in for much less then it might be for the best.

I personally wouldn't be at all surprised if any gaps in the squad are filled now by loan signings.

I wouldn't have a problem with this at all now, there are not many positions a first 11 player would be needed for.

Maybe he doesnt like flying, who was it that was defending players privacy with regard to injury/illness a while back? Maybe he doesn't have a passport like that other fella we had recently?
I'd say he can play very well with his back to goal provided it comes into feet, I'd have hated to play against him as a central defender, and as you say, he can score a goal.
However, he probably just doesnt figure in KC plans now that he's got two Smith Oliver and Williams in the squad.

Looking at the feedback on the Walsall forums they werenít exactly gutted that he was released. It looks like he might fit the bill in terms of being a left footer and the fact that heís 6ft3 probably fits in with KCís template. I would hope we could get someone a bit more inspiring but then again heís still pretty young.

This seems to have struck a bit of a nerve with you for some reason. No, I imagine it wouldnít be particularly pleasant if the scenario you say is the fact of the situation but as others have said there might be a variety of explanations - whoís to say waters or morias said they didnít want to travel as they are looking at arranging a move? Newellís only just 18 so heís got plenty of time and probably will go out on loan for the season anyway. I agree with your second paragraph but I suspect that KC is a better judge of a player - particularly a centre half - than either of us.

The Guthrie ex of Walsall seems universally panned on their forum.

Just revisited Yellows forum and Guthrie is confirmed as ex Walsall; also mentioned that (a) J Guthrie was in Spain with Northampton. From what I can see Guthrie came on second half and steadied the ship and played ok. He got at least two favourable comments. Perhaps Jolly is correct its a Scottish centre half in Spain with same name. As Coolie said all very bizarre. Perhaps Coolie can sort the facts out after all Man04 is very concerned! Jon Guthrie ex Walsall is 5'10" not 6' 3" as mentionedon on their Forum.

Looks like it was Danny (ex Liverpool, Blackburn and Bolton midfielder) who was on trial at Walsall as they have just signed him.

Where does that leave Jon?

Possibly with us in Spain?

At Oxford?

Sorry to be pedandic but his record at this level is 6 goals in 46 games, and 10 goals in 45 games in League One. Not sure he's a "proven goal scorer at this level". That said, would rather have him than a 34 year old Robbie Simpson.

Would also flag up that he only started 19 for P*sh, scoring seven in those games. Not bad after the jump from non-league. Substitute appearances skew the stats. Agree with you that he's not exactly proven, but there's bags of potential there.

The problem is that we have reached the point in the transfer window when the likelihood is that players tracked and desired are now settled-in. The signings we make now are either loans (currently surplus to the needs of the parent club or unwanted) or dregs. Just look at the current trialists.

Worth adding (Everbrite) - Junior has liked many a tweet in recent times that have been, shall we say 'a bit anti KC when it comes to his inclusion/non-inclusion'.

I suspect that decisions have been made, and he's off at any point soon. Thats been clear since the early part of the year. Personally, I think a team needs to set itself up old school, 4-4-2 to get the best out of Morais - he kind of doesn't fit into a front 3/number 10/ type formation/s that KC seems to favour.

Also, when we have gone 4-4-2, he prefers for us to lump it up to two big men, again Morais doesn't suit his footballing agenda in any way.

Finally, he's probably an expensive luxury to have as an impact player, sat on the bench most of the time.

Two central defenders are a must , especially if we are playing 3 at the back.
Williams , Turnbull , Goode and Hughes is nowhere near strong enough. I hope KC isnít relying on part time central defenders like Bunney and McCormack to fill in . It never works.
If Bunney stays , our left side cover / option is okayish .
If Morias goes we seriously need a proper striker that isnít a linkman and every club in the country is looking for one of those , so good luck with that .

"There is no point taking too many attacking players and not enough defenders because no one benefits that way. Keith has spoken to Billy and Junior and they know the situation. It is a little unfortunate but they understand. The door is not closed on them, they understand the reasons behind it and they know they need to keep working hard."

Nine days later they are both made available for transfer??

I wonder what they did whilst the others were away....I mean, were there any coaches left in England to look after them? Or did the two players get the week off?!

Waters was already made available for transfer along with Bunney (is this still the case?) following the release of the retained list at the end of last season. These comments you quote were made by assistant Colin West after the Sileby game, clearly he didn't speak to KC before making them.

Ex-Brimingham defender Remeao Hutton on trial today, still have Yebli with us and Robbie Simpson ( ???).

Didnt realise hutton had been released. Surley got to be uungry to prove a point.

Considering he signed a 2 year extension at the end of last season is it more likely that heís on trial with a view to a loan (if such a thing exists?). Either that or Birminghamís financial issues have meant they have released him.

Ask him the questions the fans want to hear ffs!

Any CBs or wingers or pacy strikers under 6ft coming in?

Is Bunney now off the transfer list?

KC did mention about good housekeeping again. Seemed to suggest he needs Morias & Waters to move on to free up some money.

I have to disagree about Bunney. I think he's performed quite well mainly at centre back in a three. Certainly hasn't looked out of place, still has the odd lapse of concentration but I think that goes for most of the players.

The level of journalistic enquiry certainly leaves more than a bit to be desired at times - we still donít know what injury McCormack has for example. How many weeks was yebli on trial for, 4 or 5 - still at least we got him fit for someone else and he got a Spanish holiday out of it.  I got the impression from Curleís interview that we might be waiting for waters and morias to move on before we look to bring anyone in (or at least we donít know what the budget is until they move on), I donít know whatís happened to the rest of the Pierre money (or perhaps itís all gone already).

I notice Ben Reeves is currently training with Milton Keynes to allow him to gain fitness and find a club. A left footed creative midfield player, could be a decent signing if we could get him in. KC did say he was after a different type of player than Curtis Yebli, who has been on trial.

Clearly the Chron reporter got more from KC than Radio Npton.

Hutton is an out and out right winger who was asked to play at right wing back to see how he faired. He hasn't decided whether to offer him (loan) anything because there are a couple of others he'd like to take a look at first.   

Simpson is continuing to train and has a fitness programme "he has a good understanding of the game" according to Curle.

Nothing mentioned about any central defensive signings that are incoming.

I agree with this - I think it might be a combination of a lack of journalistic skills combined with the fact that KC tends to say a lot without giving anything away. I also agree on the Waters/morias point - itís one thing exiling them but quite another to expect this to magically lead to another club taking them off our hands.

Thereís no doubt KC talks a lot ( of rubbish very often) to stop anyone asking probing questions . Surely that needs to be challenged .

When playing a back 5 in preseason KC has tended to play Williams & Smith together., but I really hope we go back 4 as we always play better and get better results than with 5 but it seems KC is too pig headed to abandon his favoured back 5.
Iíve got a feeling Smith with have a good goal scoring season

He has already contradicted himself by signing a player without one going out .
It is my guess that the club are waiting for a fee for Waters and Morias . I suspect they could easily loan them out or let them go for nothing . On this basis , we bought Wharton in .

What is accurate is that Isgrove went on loan from Barnsley to Portsmouth at the end of January and was only named in three first team squads, not even playing a minute of football for Pompey before the end of the season. He wasn't injured, just couldn't break into the team.

Yes he has some class but only applies it for a fraction of the game. A luxery we can do without, give me a 90 minute player instead.

I always recall that amazing 'chase down' and assist versus Forest Green in the last minute to win us the game. Wonderful stuff.

Absolute sensational effort and determination coupled with skill all rolled into one.

My issue with him was always, why couldn't he have displayed such endeavour more than once in a blue moon? An expensive luxury, and like you...Id much rather have a 90 minute player. Especially if he's going to be costing us the kind of money that KVV was!

He seems a good lad and has never been given a chance at this club in his rightful position.
He may or may not be good enough but he deserved a chance.
He then has the indignity of being wheeled out against a pub team with the kids .
I can only assume we are wanting a fee or his wages are prohibitive.
I hope he sorts himself out and scores a hatful .

he has been given a chance - he isn't (or wasn't) good enough - never looked league standard.

doesn't mean he isn't a nice bloke though.

maybe some of the kids felt hard done by having to play in a team with him last night?! no reason to pander to someone for no reason - he is still getting paid, probably more than he should be!

I fully agree with this. Make him train with the kids if you really don't want him around the main squad but to actually roll him out as the only senior player in a youth team in front of the public is disrespectful and rude to a professional footballer. However, if he was played as an opportunity for him to impress a scout then that's a completely different matter. With any luck it was the latter and they saw enough to make them take a punt on him.

Really odd rumour to be fair, but the source is a pretty good one.

Maybe things happening behind the scenes we don't know about? Good move for Dai if so, not so much for us as it only leaves us Arnold (who we have seen little of) and young Lashley as our two keepers.

If it is for money, suppose we have no choice but to take it.

Not to worry, if Cornell leaves we will get a young goalkeeper in on loan from a Premiership or Championship side. That may be no bad thing if we end up with someone commensurate with the quality of Lee Nicholls say, less so if we end up with a Lewis Ward.

Interestingly Lewis Ward is still a Reading keeper now out on loan at Exeter.

I'll chip in toward your petrol. This would be hilarious if true.

Cornell had the second worst shots on target to save ratio in the division last season.

The opposition managed 179 shots on target over the 46 matches, scoring 63 times, 1 goal for less than every 3 shots on target.

Only Notts County's GK fared slightly worse.

Cobblers had the 7th best record for the least opposition shots on target last season, but the 17th worst goals conceded record. Hmmm.

Stats tend to mean that someone is less biased surely because they are basing their opinions on fact?

I thought Cornell did ok last season to be honest. However the stats disagree with me. Im sure you have heard of XG (expected goals scored) well there is a similar stat for goals conceded (XGC). XGC is based on shots on target only, so it is a good measurement of shot stopping.

Of the 24 keepers who conceded the most goals in league 2 last season Cornell had the 4th worst goals conceded compared to his XGC. 62 goals went in, his XGC figure was 55.55, so he was -6.45 goals. Only Murphy (Bury), Fitzsimons (Notts County) and Forde (Cambridge) had worse figures.

I like Cornell and dont understand the over the top dislike of him from some, however if we were to receive a fee for him I would say that is good business and lets move on.

Exactly. I would also argue that conversely it's a better guide to the performance of a teams defence than goals conceded.

The teams with the best record for shots on target against last season were:

Colchester 154
Mansfield 165
Exeter 167
Bury 172
Tranmere 175
Port Vale 178
Cobblers 179
Lincoln 186
Newport 187
Stevenage 188
FGR 190
MK 194

I thought Taylor and Buchanan in particular were poor last year and I'm glad they have now left, but the stats show that the goal was protected a little better by the defence than many might think.

To put a slightly different slant on this interesting discussion surrounding shot stats, it did appear that virtually all of the goals we conceded were just plain stupid ones! More so than any other seasons, or at least it seemed like that!

How many goals did opponents score against us, where you could honestly say 'bloody good goal that'!

We seemed to always have lapses in concentration, particularly set pieces. I think our general defensive play on the whole was decent but individual errors were very much higher than average. So that meant that when a team had a chance to shoot, it was normally a straight forward easy goal where Cornell had zero chance of saving it.

Since KC was appointed, there was only a couple of games when we rolled over, but we didn't have the ability to grind out results. One of the most frustrating seasons in memory, one where we should have done so much better than we did!

We don't yet know if a manager is prepared to pay money for Cornell, if so, if he's an expert, does that mean that the managers at all his previous clubs were experts as well? because all of them released him.

I think stats are great to have and a necessary tool for any Football manager. Your stats or at least those which you basically manipulate to suit your personal views on Cornell are by their very nature often entirely subjective and used by pundits to illustrate their POV. Unlike you I saw enough of Cornell to realize he was a relatively modest keeper; by no means the best in the Division (2). Unfortunately for you the current Manager played him 46 times last season which at least shows he commanded the respect of KC. Furthermore the Players voted Cornell their player of the season; so you rubbish KC's judgement and his team mates for voting for him. Could have easily been Pierre. You also make the cardinal error of relying on video's which often give very little back ground to most goals scored. Drilling is quite right to point out that many of the goals against(us) were caused by lack of concentration and poor ball retention in our defensive third (or worse in midfield). At least 50% of those on here do not agree with you  and certainly the silent majority say he is ok for the task in hand. If you are going to debate a players ability always produce a few positives to give your subject more credence.
As an after thought on the two currnet keepers both look reasonably competent and would not be surprised if the ex Shrews guy gets the nod; especially if Cornell has been the subject of Transfer interest. If he did sign for a Chamionship side you would rubbish that because thats not on your agenda.
Some Managers are able to pick out decent players where the stats are not apparently in the players favour.

This. Heís not very good. If we are happy for another bottom half season, then by all means keep him as number one. If we want a promotion challenge, we need much better. For a start, the amount of goals he let in from range this year has been far too high.

I said this about Cornell on the 11th May in the Post Mortem thread. I maintain this. I personally think he will start tomorrow so hope to be wrong on my overall forecast.

If he plays though, he will have my support as he will have earnt it, due to actually having competent competition.

If you listen to the KC interview on last night's Cobblers Show https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07hw5cz (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07hw5cz) it explains everything re Bunney...

First meeting between KC & JB...JB stated he didn't see his future at NTFC & wanted to move back North...KC said fine...let's rip your contract up then...JB declined!

No one wants him so he's having to knuckle down until that changes...

He is a left sided attacking player .

Roberts isn't fit, Morais is only fit for a few games a season and we didn't play with wing backs Saturday so Bunney would have been either LB or LW.

Hoskins and Martin were the better options for both positions.

I suspect itís about money - running an under 23 or full reserve team in a league requires more players, use of pitches, transport etc.

Loaning a young player out makes a lot of sense - should be at a reasonable level but also considering age location is also a factor.

My view on that is we have enough players that are injury prone already unless itís a pay as you play deal which is unlikely .
I do wonder if we have been holding out for a fee for the transfer listed players and if we will eventually accept them going out on loan.

I tend to agree with you on that but the sentimental side of me would have Holmes back in a heartbeat if heís even remotely fit.

It is a shame all our players aren't on a pay as you play deal. It would save us a lot of money.

Hoskins would be a millionaire

Itís all gone very quiet on the transfer front .
I am genuinely surprised no one has come in for any of the three listed players .
It must be down to wages or that we are holding out for a fee in each case .

I very much doubt it, we are now in the bargain basement and I shudder to think what Curle will go for we desperately need a left sided player who has pace and a footballing brain.
Something that Hoskins has never had.

Looking at the bench on Tuesday there were a lot of strikers and nothing in the way of creativity in wide positions.

Hopefully we cna get a left winger in to balance the squad.

Curle will probably sign a 6Ē9í striker who is 43 years old and play him at left wing back.... oh hang on

its good news in the sense that in theory it should give KC the wiggle room to bring in own man in, in a position we are desperately crying out to get sorted (left wing).

Time will tell. But he's not been playing and I struggled to see where he fitted in with any formation other than a 4-4-2, as well as not offering what we desperately crave for...pace.

I agree with all this - it will be interesting to see who KC brings in.

Curle hinted in the Chron that he could bring people in with out selling Junior, he also stated that bringing in someone would have knock on effects for other squad members game time, which he was being mindful of. So we may not get a new body in before the end of the window.

Sale - undisclosed fee. He's signed a 2 year contract.

Yeah, I am sure all of our other left wingers will have their noses put out of joint if we bring in a new one  :P
