According to Bradford fans, no great loss as his legs have gone at 36!
Let's move on from journeymen...

I'd rather we start properly blooding some of our talented youth to see if they can cut it.

I'm sure Cam McWilliams would have faired better than Waters at rwb yesterday...

You can argue that but equally Mcwilliams is struggling at the moment. Young man thrust into a struggling side could mean the end of a career.

Are there two Lawrence Shanklands?

The one who plays for Ayr has interest from Celtic,rangers and Sunderland so it canít be him.

Got to agree - the chances of us signing a promising, young striker who has interest from top clubs and would obviously require a decent fee are slim to none. Much more likely is either an overpaid veteran whose legs are gone - Karl Henry - or a non-scoring, overpaid troublemaker like Nile Ranger.

Joined us on loan in 2015. Also played under Curle at Carlisle but was released early from his contract to sign for Notts County. Solid centre half from what I remember.

No thanks - not really any better than what we already have (with the possible exception of Taylor) and he's hardly been setting the world alight at the team that is propping the league up. He's also pretty injury prone.

So we sign this journeyman who Notts County fans will pay to take off their hands or we finally give Jay Williams a pro contract and start properly blooding one of our own...

Sure I read somewhere that KC quite likes a journeyman. I may have dreamt it mind.

Aren't near enough all lower league signings journeymen? Especially in January when everyone is still under contract.

I don't think we're a million miles away from a decent side. Definitely need some width/pace, preferably wing-backs if we're going down that route. Potentially another keeper and defensive mid, but think both Cornell and Turnbull are serviceable in those roles.

Main priority is to start shifting some of the deadwood.

Clarke Carlisle was a pretty decent 'journeyman' signing too ;0)

Shaun Brisley is not that great and Curle could not wait to get rid of him so that would surprise me and if he is that good then why are Notts County second bottom....

Two of our players have just asked to go out on loan for game time and their contracts are up at the end of the season, Jones and Bennett - Curle signed both of them and we paid 50k for Bennett.

Bennett frustrated Curle and has not really shone but when Curle used him effectively he would get the goal in a 1-0 win whereas Jones is a big favourite of Curle, and a decent footballer as well so don't be amazed if he turns up at your place.

You could do far worse.

Shaun Brisley in his brief stint with us played quite a lot like Taylor does now, good in the air, not so comfortable on the deck. He scored once if I remember correctly.

Really? Old 50p head. Should have put his glasses on. Not pretty decent at all. Just my opinion though, before you all gather your pitchforks and chase me round the Tavern.

If the crop of young players at the club are as good as they are cracked up to be, this season should be about building an experienced spine of the team with a nucleus of solid league 2 pros and blooding the young lads alongside them.
