He's gradually moving in a north-easterly direction since his time at Plymuff.

I can only assume he has been advised to move closer to the UK's centre-of-gravity by DEFRA.
Haha I remember Reid playing here for Exeter a couple of years back and he was getting abuse for being fat so of course he scores, and then sticks the bell under his shirt and starts patting it like it’s his stomach.
Fair play to him, and despite his bulk he was real quality that day we couldn’t get near him.

What do you mean by that?

It seems odd, we've struggled for goals all year and he's barely been getting into our U23s side let alone the first team and he's been fit all year.
A player being courted by a number of clubs, but apparently the only one who is prepared to stump up the money we want for him is managed by the son of our manager who, alongside his chief scout brother, are allegedly entitled to 10% of whatever fee the club gets...

It just seemed a little...convenient.

The fact he hasn't even been getting into your U23 squad as well seems very odd.

Yeah there probably was a nice retirement cut for Gary in there somewhere, the least we owe the bloke.

Shame Eisa hasn't worked out, I imagine he'll be moved on this summer. You can have him back if you like.

Exagent had a little twitter spree,

Crewe and Mansfield in for Adam King, on loan during Evans era, never given a chance but clearly something is there and young.

Swindon and Exeter interested in Tom Hadler following his Gillingham release, Tranmere want Andy Cook to replace Norwood;

Mikeal Mandron of Colchester is wanted by Mansfield, FGR and MK.

Definitely a made up rumour that top one is. No way would I want that lazy, lightweight streak of piss back at the football club ever again. Can't imagine he's improved in the last 4 years either.

Well considering you don’t make the decisions, you never know shag.
So-called "exagent" has literally picked up that rumour from thin air using two of King's former clubs.

Plus Artell said a midfielder is nowhere near the top of our priorities. We have a lad on trial whose different to our lightweight midfielders and Paul Green right now, but we need to strengthen the defence and attack first.

I’m not saying that rumour is correct, but he got absolutely shit loads right last summer - so you never know.

Anybody know the Macc to Northampton Smith Fee? Since a article from Curle suggesting he’s being backed well this summer.

Nominal. Macc need money at the minute.

We’re close to signing Jack Byrne - Oldham fans, what’s he like?

Brighton and Sheff Utd want Oli McBurnie. Rumoured to be circa £12m for his services. We have a 15% sell on clause, which means we’ll receive a tidy £1.8m.

Heard we're potentially in for Ash Taylor who I believe is available for transfer from Northampton.

Considering the vocal minority of our fans who obsess over players who played for the worst Crewe side in 35 years a few years back, I don't care if Taylor's a mediocre signing, I'd absolutely take him over their preferred choice Jon Guthrie. Guthrie's got more leaks in him than Julian Assange with the amount of goals he's played a part in conceding whilst being a first team regular for the past 5 seasons at both Crewe and Walsall.

Capable of stepping up immediately? Do you have an opinion on Szmodics?
Tough to say, he was very highly rated at Brum, they thought Harry should have given him a chance, and he played for the England u20's so the potential's there I think. Certainly a cut above league 2 in terms of his passing and vision. Had about 6 contenders in our goal of the season list.

Was very lightweight when he signed and struggled at times last season,has got noticeably stronger this year, but he is very small and needs to play in a passing side where he gets on the ball a lot.

Szmodics was excellent at our place, but have only seen him once tbf.

Thankfully contract cancelled over the weekend so he’s a free agent, although I had heard from a good source Carlisle were in talks with him

Where have you heard this mate? I've seen a few rumours on twitter that Brentford wanted Byrne but not seen anything about us.

That exagent account is rarely if ever accurate. Cannot see us going for Mandron, and we definitely won't be competing with Mansfield or MK for players.

That seems fairly damning. He was a decent defender for Rovers, though distribution not a strong point and got unfairly targeted by the boo-boys. There was talk of him returning in the transfer window, which came to nothing. Also seemed to do well during his stint at Aberdeen, so what went wrong at Northampton?

Rumours Hannant is having a medical with us this week. He’s a Norfolk boy so would likely favour us over FGR.

What was wrong with his attitude?

Has the appearance of being good whilst actually is not. He started off ok here but then got worse and worse as time went on. First reaction is to blame others around him whenever we conceded, even was it was clearly his fault. We seemed to have a MUCH better record when he wasnt in the team, plus he was apparently on a fair wedge. Loves to have a shot from 35 yards as well. Thinks he is better than he is. He is by no means horrendous, should be a solid L2 centre back, but nowhere near someone like Pierre who we will probably lose also.

Nah that’s completely incorrect it’s got shit loads right.

To be fair It’s more reliable when it comes to a player about to sign than for example ‘rumoured interest’


Anyway, we are after 3-5 players, primarily strikers, wingers etc and Jacob Mellis has verbally agreed a new contract.
