Someone said something negative about an Ex player so therefore he will be rubbish for us. That's how it works.. just like Holmes.
Not that I'm saying he will be the next Ricky Holmes.. just, I want to see him play for us before judging him.

Certainly agree about seeing him play first, we have had plenty arrive with a fanfare that have been absolute s***e and vice versa.

Just unsure why people seem so glum about our signings, what exactly did they expect at this level?

Just stuck £20 on Cobblers to be relegated.

If you're throwing money around, you might as well give it to me.

Part of a team that made the play offs.

Good amount of games at this level.

Scored a decent amount of goals from midfield.

What is not to like about this signing?
Emmm we have basically got rid of a midfielder who scored 9 goals in L1 last year for one who scored 7 goals in L2. Not really sure whatís too exciting about it tbh.
Still letís see him play first.

I donít remember opinions on Bolger but there were plenty on here that thought last yearís recruitment was very poor, with the side weaker than the one promoted and having a distinct lack of goals in it.

This year Iím finding it hard to have any gut feeling either negative or positive on the signings so far

Maybe this will help.

Its nice to see the club sticking to deadlines. I assume watson was hoping we would offer him more money and that has come back to haunt him.
Watson doesnt even have a new club lined up

Completely agree we shouldnít wait, although what does that say about the attractiveness of the club in general?

Be surprised if he hasn't, as any L1 midfielder who can score 9 goals is worth a punt from any L1 Club seeking more firepower in Midfield. As I understand it both Watson and Jones players are still employed by NTFC up to the end of June. If this is the case they may have signed prelim' contracts (in Jones case) with their prospective Clubs. These agreements are not water tight.

If my understanding is incorrect please advise otherwise.

Sorry you feel that way Tone

Just a funnyÖ.the issue is that none of your source material is going to be very exciting and there were better clues on 321  Grin

Completely agree with you. Dont really care about what fans of other clubs say tbh. I remember pompey fans slagging of Ricky Holmes and he turned out OK. Just because a couple of tranmere fans say he is no great loss doesn't mean he is rubbish. After all I'll say the same about Watson, no great loss to be honest and if he doesn't want to be hear then cheerio

I think the "transfer" can be cancelled by either party before the actual date.

Watson is a strange one, yes he finished our top scorer but until JB took over he looked average. Any club looking at him will take the full season into account. Clubs will be wondering what watson they will get

Watson scored 5 goals in L2 last time (I think) after scoring 2 in the previous 5 seasons to it.  Smiley

Like you say, let's see what he looks like in some proper games first.

Refreshing to see a manager not being messed around. On the flip side it looks like 3 very average signings so far.

On paper the replacements looks cheaper than those they have replaced. Maybe we are saving cash for a couple of big incomings!?

Lewis would have played a fair chunk of his games for Cambridge under the management of Colin Calderwood.

Would have been there at the same time as Richards

Watson was good when pushed forward because he scored a few which we desperately needed. But without the goals he is average as a midfielder and thatís what he is ultimately in the side for. One of those ďluxury we canít afford typesĒ. To be brutally honest thatís why it was a good idea to push him forward, no significant loss to the midfield. Donít get me wrong, heís ok but I think there are better around.

They sign a contract to start on 1 July, just like our new players have. The fact they are employed up to the end of June by NTFC is of no relevance really, they are free agents from 1 July. If Watson had signed for someone else I'm sure his new club would have announced it...unless they want do some big unavailing like we did many years ago with Taylor,Jess and Dyche. I doubt Watson warrants that.

Like all things wage related, I dont think we have any way whatsoever of knowing who is being paid what. I think its fine to be unimpressed with the impressions of the signing, and to also realise that other fans opinions isnt a ironclad guanratee on the value for the team. For instance, Oliver was panned even by Morecambe fans, Lines was idolised by Rovers fans. We'll see how they play soon enough.

Really wish we valued people who could pass the ball and create more than we do though.

Jones was definitely a bigger loss than Watson, but everyone called both leaving. Definitely learnt lessons from last year, as I was certain Curle thought it was nailed on we'd sign both Oliver and Morton until the day they didnt, which left us with no-one.
