For those not wishing Carl well, I ask them what they would do if they were sacked by their employer and were offered employment at an even higher level by the only other similar employer in the area

Only greed and self interest stops there being 2 national divisions of either 16 or 18 with North and South regional divisions beneath.

It would appear that you are very much in the minority with such a negative view. Personally, I am more enthused about the new season than I have been for some time.

Manny Duku signs a one year deal. Nice.

Two capable and experienced forwards signed in a single day.

Very positive and at least one box ticked.

Anyone heard anything about Raith’s Duku joining us . Overheard a conversation in a bar this afternoon. It all went quiet just after half time 

 

so my boy in the pub was absolutely spot on!

Pleased to have Billy back (again) although I think we have all learned not to get too excited when a popular former player returns Storey, Vincent etc)

These days for Billy Mckay it’s maybe not so much a case of “He scores when he wants” as “He scores a perfectly reasonable proportion of the chances provided to him and is as good a striker as we can realistically expect taking into account our club’s current league status and limited financial resources”, although admittedly that’s not quite as catchy to chant.

That's why Prog was invented.

Duku - great signing and a bit of a shock 😮

Wonder if this means we are likely to play 4 4 2 with Mckay and Duku the first pick front pairing, or whether Mckay will play off Duku in the number 10 role, which he did at times last season after County signed White.

Midfield and up front suddenly looking pretty strong. Now we need a couple of decent defenders to strengthen the squad.

You've obviously missed that we are supposed to use three word slogans these days...lets hope it's at least "Mckay. Scores. Another"

Was a bit despondent losing Toddy after Daniel had gone, but Walsh, McKay and Duku are all welcome replacements.

Duku has certainly moved around and seldom stays more than a year anywhere, and he’s only signed a one year deal with us. We need his Hayes and Yeading scoring rate:

Getting a feeling that this second signing has fallen through...taking a loooooong time to announce it if not...

You mean Gardyne?

Record reporting he's joining us, and that was an hour ago. Probably going to be announced at lunch time

Press and Journal tweeting the same. We shall see I suppose

Record also announcing that we are getting Reece McAlear on loan from Norwich so if that's true and we, as most expect, announce Gardyne tomorrow that will be us only needing to concentrate on getting in another centre half and right back because we will then have 2 GK (which should be plenty imho), 8 Midfielders and 4 strikers. 

 

Seems like Billy and the board have ambitions of getting promoted this season, especially with all the quality we're signing :ictscarf:

I am not sure that I would describe our signings so far as 'quality'.

However, they are all experienced and perfectly able at Championship level and give us a chance of promotion this season.

Given current circumstances and our financial constraints, that is probably all we can ask for just now.

Definitely grounds for optimism.

cinch are the new sponsors of the Championship. Don’t ask me why it is cinch rather than Cinch.

It’s a sister company of webuyanycar.com and Rylan Clark-Neal (ask some young folk, Kingsmills!) does adverts for them. Perhaps he’s even booked flights already to present us with the league trophy next May.

McAlear in on a season long loan.

 

Great to have such a promising youngster and for the full season rather than just until January.

Not sure if it's down to Robbo, Dodds or the CEO but an excellent piece of business by someone.

You are absolutely correct in your assumption that I am not altogether familiar with the work of Mr Clark-Neal.😁
