A Carlisle fan suggested we may be one of a few clubs interested in Ashley Nadesan who has just finished a loan spell at Carlisle for the second time. Pacey striker apparently, Carlisle fans seen to rate him.

Or Adam smith - they certainly look like they’re going to loan one of them out. Having said that I don’t think goalkeeper is at the top of our list of priorities.

Sigh!

You just know we'll sell to the first bidder for pennies & omit any sell on...

Meanwhile, Ash (I'm too good for L2 & my form ain't dipped) Taylor will no doubt remain as our first choice CB...

I think it would be suicide if we got rid of Pierre or crooks - KT has got to tread very carefully when looking to “balance the books”.

Hitc are hardly a reliable source - 9 months ago they were trumpeting that QPR were interested in Taylor!

KT and DB might be many things but they don’t strike me as stupid people - it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce that if we lose Pierre and crooks (and replace them with completely untried prem/championship youngsters or over the hill Carlisle castoffs) we will likely keep losing, fall further down the league, fans will become very restless and the anger will be directed to KT and DB. Having said that neither of them are based in this country so the ire will fall on James whiting.

He is not usually of the mark though in this case he is quoting HITC as his source. Hope this has no legs.

Hardly surprising that clubs are looking at quality players at a club that has to balance its books is it?

I know that “housekeeping” and “balancing the books” have become the buzz words (repeated ad nauseum in every interview) but KT would do well to look to address the majority of this in the summer when hopefully we are safe and we can look at a new start. The risks of a fire sale in January when we are in shocking form and dropping like a stone are there for all to see (I just hope that KC isn’t too blinkered to realise that we can easily get sucked into a relegation battle).

I don't think for a moment it will happen, but if we lost Pierre and Crooks and Van Veen without equal replacement then it would be the worst transfer window I ever remember happening.

From Curle's point of view though - Even our better players are extremely inconsistent.

The one and only exception to that is Turnbull over recent (unless you count Hoskins who is consistently useless of course)

So from his point of view (I have no idea what Pierre and Crooks are on moneywise) - but lets say a combined 8K/9K a week.

Maybe just maybe KC thinks he can use that 8K a week more wisely and get maybe 4 players in (some of whom maybe more consistent) 

I've said before for the first time in my memory I would not be too disappointed if any particular member of this squad left as none of them are irreplaceable. The issue maybe more the ability to bring in quality in the January market.

I agree with that to an extent, and there isn’t a single player who hasn’t been inconsistent this season, but if we were to lose Pierre it rips the heart out of our already creaking defence and take crooks out and the creativity goes completely - there is no way that KC would be able to replace either adequately. I notice that KC is urging crooks to play in a more advanced position to capitalise on his creativity but I’m sure he hasn’t been dropping back in the grimes “quarterback” position on his own volition - the reason he’s been so deep is that KC is insisting on this playing out from the back and crooks is about the only player we’ve got who is confident on the ball.

This sums up my thoughts entirely.
