So, the end to a very disappointing season is almost here and everyone is rightly a bit gloomy. What better way to cheer up than to indulge in the discussion of transfers, where upon you can leave realism behind?  Grin

This a thread intended to be a friendly, light-hearted discussion for which players that you may have enjoyed watching in the past, or think would be a good signing for us going into League 2.

No need to be hyper-analytical of each post or to assess whether someone else's suggestion is too farfetched.

I'll get the ball rolling... Kristian Dennis of Chesterfield. Scored 19 this season and would probably be available after their relegation!

The problem with these threads is that they just end up away with the fairies. There was a thread on Twitter after relegation was confirmed about who we should look to sign. Some wise sage on there thinks we should go after Danny Graham from Blackburn as he "may be looking for a final pay day". That will be the same Danny Graham that has been on Prem/top level Championship wages for the past 10 years, but yeah he'll definitely come to League 2 for £3k a week!

I get what you mean but that was kind of point of the thread to just have a fun discussion. If such suggestions irk you then just leave it be.

Ricky Holmes will get fed up of warming the bench at Sheffield, and will join on a season long loan.  Grin

Danny Rowe from fylde - I wouldn’t have thought he’ll want to hang around now they’ve been beaten in the playoff last night.

Danny Hylton would be top of my list - not good enough for league 1 - Luton may look to get rid - Will score goals and is always a pain in the arse when he plays us. He would be a good realistic signing.

Aye, fair enough. Let's see what gem's get brought up  Smiley

Be interesting to see what happens now Luton have gone up and Hylton and Collins seem to be in between the two leagues. Gut feel is they'll keep Hylton and look to offload Collins. Neither would be cheap I'd imagine

We need mentally strong players, winners, orrible' bastards to play against.....

Decent striker(s) with pace & creative players...

First though, as we've got so many under contract already, we need to try & ship out the dross such as Bowditch, Kasim, KVV (especially!)

You've just described exactly what happened the likes of Matt Taylor, Clarke Carlise and Sean Dyche did when they joined us. Not saying Danny Graham specifically will join us, but it does happen!

I’d try and look at attacking players with most assists, most goals and appearances. Particularly if in struggling teams that don’t want to drop a level or missed out on stepping up.
I’d try and look at defenders with teams that have conceded the least goals.
Players with good discipline and fitness records.

In short, areas we have failed this season.

Young enough to have ambition and drive and or experienced enough to have guile and strength in a promotion fight.

I might be wrong, but I reckon Collins will be ahead of Hylton at Luton. They might get rid of both tho as you say!

You do need nasty in your face players in Lg2 and Hylton ticks all the boxes in that regard as well as getting prob 15 goals

I think we should sign a pacey striker who likes playing in front of a newly developed East Stand, hotel and conference centre, which completes the 12,000 seater (and safe standing) stadium!!!

Nurse another lager please.

It does indeed but they were all 3/4/5 years alder than Graham when they joined us. They weren't getting games at the level they were at and we were another stop on their gradual journey downward.

Graham is first choice for a side promoted to the championship, to suggest he would want to play in League 2 right now for a few k a week is pretty laughable,

As I said, I'm not saying Graham specifically would join us. Just making the point that players who have played their whole career in the top 2 divisions will drop down to L2.
