This is the amount each team spent on Agent fees last year. While that's going to be influenced somewhat by how many players that you need to bring in etc, with high turnarounds in League 2 I think it's probably a good aproximation of how teams budgets compare to each other.

Bristol Rovers - £119,817
Salford City - £116,390
Bradford City - £108,451
Leyton Orient - £85,618
Mansfield Town - £74,970
Swindon Town - £69,048
Walsall - £60,010
Carlisle United - £60,001
Harrogate Town - £59,177
Forest Green Rovers - £55,007
Northampton Town - £54,727
Sutton - £53,761
Barrow - £53,062
Port Vale - £46,319
Sc***horpe United - £45,381
Rochdale - £36,183
Exeter - £35,090
Stevenage - £31,850
Oldham Athletic - £30,868
Tranmere Rovers - £25,208
Crawley Town - £20,921
Colchester United - £18,423
Newport County - £15,150
Hartlepool - £10,174

Fairly mid-table budget which we've overachieved with.

Someone said in the queue to the beam-back that Roberts has already signed for Ipswich and Horsfall has agreed terms with another club.

Horsfall apparently told someone at the awards evening that he definitely won't be here if we are still in League 2, and would prefer to be nearer his girlfriend in Halifax.

Also at the awards dinner... Roberts going higher than League One and Man Utd scouts at the Rochdale game watching him. Either way he won't be here next season

One thing Cobblers have got right is identifying and buying qualiry centre backs. Pierre, Goode, Turnbull, Horsfall, Guthrie. Confident we'll get a replacement, and might even have one depending on Nolan.

Record far more mixed on Goalkeepers

Only other our of contract probably getting interest is McWilliams, interesting to see how that develops

The decision to give Roberts a one-year deal with no option is coming back to bite us.  I think Manchester United might be a bit of a stretch but heíll have no trouble in finding a decent League 1 or even a lower Championship club. Itís frustrating that regardless of which league weíre going to have to look to replace 2 key players but as others have said, thatís the nature of being a League 2 club.

The way Sammy has been playing and scoring lately it wouldn't surprise me if some teams were keeping an eye on him. I hope not, but at least we would get a fee I suppose.

Cant see Shaun making the jump to the championship or to the top end of league 1 tbh. Would love to be proven wrong but just dont think he has the ability on the ball to be in a team dominating possession.

We've got the following under contract
LB Ali Koiki CB John Guthrie CB Ryan Nolan CB Max Dyche RB Aaron McGowan LM Mitch Pinnock CM Jack Sowerby CM Paul Lewis RM Sam Hoskins FW Louis Appere FW Nicke Kabamba

Out of contract; GK Liam Roberts, GK Johnny Maxted , LB Joseph Mills, CB Sid Nelson, CB Fraser Horsfall, RB Michael Harriman, CM Shaun McWilliams, CM Scott Pollock, FW Danny Rose, FW Benny Ashley-Seal

For next year we've got decent quality at Left Back, Right Back, one Centre Back, LM, RM, one CM and on FW. Decent start where you'd want to keep 7 of the team and have them locked down under contracts. Priority is obviously trying to re-sign Roberts, Horsfall and McWilliams - think McWilliams is the one most getable and least likely to have higher suitors, but only because of his proneness for injuries. Could lose them all, might keep a few. No-one else on the out of contract list I'm too bothered for losing.

So, priorities are to strength the full-back depth, sort out the goalie situation again with either Roberts or an equal replacement, two new Centre-Mids if Shaun goes, and two forwards. Would be great to get Eppiah, and while it's unlikely on premier wages the fact the's quite injury prone might allows us to get him, a bit like when we managed to snag Bayo because he had repeat injuries. Otherwise we should probably go back to raiding Scotland again - Guthrie, McGowan, Pinnock, Appere and Kabamba, 4 out of 5 ain't bad.  Hopefully Foyle left a list before he left us.

Roberts, Horsfall and Shaun won t be here next season.

I'm fairly confident in our recruitment if I'm honest, yes we have had few duds, but Morton, Kion Eppiah and our CBs show we are not completely hapless, so I am not worried.

It would be interesting to know what weíve done to replace Martin Foyle as Head of Recruitment - hopefully the quality additions last Summer werenít totally down to him.

I heard a rumour that we have our eye on a promising young prospect at Scu*thorpe?

Hoping that Robbo's last game is one to remember for the right reasons.

I just hope the play offs don't affect out recruitment too badly.  Watching sky sports news today and seeing the various list of released players from all the clubs who's season have finished.  Clubs will already be planning but we've now got another few weeks of not knowing what division we will be in and therefore what players we need to sign.

It will affect our season terribly
Especially when we give our out of contract players weeks on end to decide if they wish to remain.
Mind you if we donít go up we know none will stay so thatís a bonus  Tongue
