Well it seems the EFL have said the domestic transfer window has been open since May 7th. Any news on who NTFC have earmarked for departure or arrival?

I'd be nervous to get rid of Buchs and Maloney - they may not be what they once were but I still think they can do a job in L2 when called upon.

Some players that have recently been released / made available that could fit the bill of what we need and are realistic targets:

Scott Cuthbert of Luton - Powerful centre half
Steve Davies of Rochdale - Big strong centre forward who can finish
Anthony Wordsworth of Southend - Talented ball playing centre midfielder
Jermaine McGlashan of Southend - Pacy winger (not sure if bit past it now)
Byron Moore of Bristol Rovers - Pacy winger
Lee Brown of Southend - Solid left back
Zeli Ismael of Bury - Useful winger
Florent Cuvelier of Walsall - Useful centre midfielder
George Glendon of Fleetwood - Tricky midfielder
Wes Thomas of Oxford - Clinical striker would be excellent in league 2
Kai Naismith of Portsmouth - Quick and direct wide forward
Will Aimson of Blackpool - Useful centre back
George Francomb of Wimbledon - good wide player

And then there is a bunch of talented players available from Boro that we could try to tempt to cross the Nene: Jack Baldwin, Anthony Grant, Chris Forrester, Junior Morias, Michael Doughty, Jermaine Anderson.

Don't be surprised to see at least one of these names pop of at the Cobblers!

I personally would make Steve Davies, Wes Thomas, and Anthony Wordsworth key targets out of them

I think there is a reason they are released from these clubs. I would set the bar higher!

For the majority, the reason is probably that they're not good enough for League One. So it's a good job we're in League Two. Some players are just really good in League Two but can't make the step up to League One. According to fans and pundits, Kal Naismith was class the year we won the league, scored 15 goals from midfield including a screamer against us. Wes Thomas got into double figures this past season and has a good record at League Two level. Wordsworth has looked decent the few times I've seen him too.

Of course there is a reason, but we are a league TWO team next season, and all of those players are leaving league ONE sides. There are some very good players within that list. Out of interest, could you name me a player that you think we should pursue? I'm interested to hear other perspectives!

Just because they are available doesn't mean they have been released they may not want to sign a new contract, also because a player has been released doesn't make them rubbish either

I'd release Barnett & bring in Cuthbert from Luton...

Was their club captain & a leader/winner - exactly what we need in L2

Exactly, John Marquis wasn't good enough for us when we were promoted to League One.

Some great names available, be interesting to see if we manage to ship anybody out sharpish.

Have the feeling we won't be seeing any incoming until there are outgoings.

Would certainly have Cuthbert, Naismith or Thomas out of that list but would need them to be replacing one of our current crop, ie Thomas in for Van Veen etc.

DA has said he wants a senior squad of 23 (3 GK, 20 outfield).

Assuming that is 2 players for each outfield position, and not including the youth crop, we aren't far off so I imagine there will just be a few like for like swaps (Bowditch, Kasim, KVV, Turnbull, Bunney if we can get rid of them, along with anyone else who doesnt want to be here) + an additional striker and winger

If we only add 2 or 3 to what we have I can honestly see us doing a chesterfield.

So you believe the below team, as an example and including 2 new signings to meet your quota would get relegated from League 2?

O'Donnell

Facey Taylor Pierre Buchanan

O'Toole McWilliams

Crooks New Signing Powell

New Signing

Subs:
Cornell
Moloney
Turnbull
Foley
Bridge
Waters
Hoskins

I mean I'm not about to say that will rip the league up and I acknowledge that fan's confidence is rightly at a low ebb after relegation but come on! There is enough there to stay up and thus overachieve on your prediction.

I think DA is right. There aren't many players in our squad that I don't particularly rate and most of them I think are potentially very good! The problem last season was they were played in roles that they didn't know/weren't suited to and as a result were pretty much hung out to dry by our first two useless managers.

The results(and more importantly the performances) DA got out of them in the last few matches suggests that he'll get them playing to their strengths and as a team, particularly once he's had a preseason to get his ideas fully into them.

I've not heard of him, what kind of player is he? Is this a rumour or a player you rate?
