It will be interesting to see how Stockton gets on at Wrecsam. He had a good spell during the second half of the season before last, as we made the NL play-off final, but was never going to fill a Cook sized hole in our attack on his return. Hope he does well.

Appears Wrexham have replaced Warrington as our feeder club.

Joking aside, Cole is a decent player who is heavily influenced by confidence. Tranmere fans didn’t forgive him for ditching us to go to Hearts where we got no compensation and were on his back as soon as he came back.

If he gets a goal in his first couple games he can be devastating at that level.
In the late 70s and early 80s, Huddersfield were our feeder club. The arrangement wasn't very productive for us, mainly due to Huddersfield's refreshingly honest insistence that the players weren't good enough to play for us until they were in their mid 30s. :ds:

Andrew Davies has had his contract ‘mutually terminated’ Bates mate didn’t want to stick around it seems.
Was supposed to be our marquee summer signing as well. Ridiculous what happens to players when they sign for us. Was he signed just coz he was mates with Bates? Did he have a sulk when he got sacked? Should we just be happy he’s gone because he only played about 10 games? Who knows but it takes something when a 34 year old halfway into a bonkers 3 year deal tears it up 6 months into it. The club is a basket case.

Must say when Pools were a league club we came up against Cole Stockton a lot in L1 and L2 and he was always shite. But at this level who knows, even Brad Walker turned into Emmanuel Petit down here.

I think Stockton can be a success at Wrexham, provided he gets the right service he’s a good finisher. Good signing for Wrexham me thinks!
Some think we don't create enough chances, yet we seem to miss a couple of sitters every match. We just need someone who can bang chances in, hope Stockton and Oswell can do this business.

Replaced at Tranmere by Ishmael Miller. I reckon incredibly we've still done the better business today.
Miller is of more use to us than Stockton. We need a physical presence up front, and we have already got goals in Norwood, Jennings and Mullin (assuming they all stay).

Stockton never scores in League Two and is not really physical enough to play as a target man. However, I do think he can score goals at Conference level.

Anyone who can score goals at this level is welcome at Wrexham. Before this week, we hadn't had one since Moult really. Unless you're counting Fondop's August.

How we've got to the league position we're in, with Mike Fondop-August being our top scorer on 5 goals is incredible.

This league is absolutely awful.

Fingers crossed it works out with the new strikers. Though I must think that Fondop will need to go out on loan as I don't think he'll get any chances with Barrow.

It turns out the Kosylo move was a Town fan having a laugh. If you can't trust a comment you read on a football forum by a member who made one solitary post and registered minutes before they wrote it, who the hell in this crazy, messed up world can you trust! :dk:

Is Mark Maguire wrecking you yet?

You are a charming individual aren't you?

I have no idea what the leagues down there are called. Southern League Premier Division Central.

A league lower than you are anyway.
Tamworth are in the Evostik Premier League (Step 3) after 2 relegations in about 5 years. He was clearly unhappy there and is better than Step 3. Five goals in his first 3 games, but has missed 4 through injury. He could be the difference to whether or not we'll be playing you again next season.

Unfortunately he is crocked. So probably not.

Probably gash if he's been playing for Alfreton.
Yes. Were shit but thats a tad harsh!

Sam Hird was only here on non contract terms and on the very few occassions he played looked unfit. He then picked up a knee injury which according to our manager was enough to rule him out for the season.

So according to Billy Heath you have signed a crooked player
