In fairness, he has managed 23 games already for Oldham this year.

On the flipside, that is 20th placed Oldham in league 2, so not sure about that defensive stability! Only 3 other sides have let in more goals.

After Saturday's catastrophic defending, first thing I thought about when driving home from the game was I wish We had Wheater back in defence, he'd be a solid defender for another 18 months or so for us.

Was just checking & I stand corrected, thought he'd missed more games than that, but not playing in 13 out of 45 games is still a high enough percentage that I wouldn't be taking the risk. 

Though you have to question why the only gig he could was Oldham !

He wanted to stay local and clearly his championship days are over.  So he needed a Div 1 or Div 2 club within about 30 miles, who still needed a centre half in August, and presumably were prepared to make him one of their better paid players.  He's streets ahead of what we have, I've forgotten what its like to have a centre throwing their body at shots and winning all the aerial battles.  And he'll score goals, unlike any of our current defenders.

Me too, I was commenting that he'd be a great signing for next season in Div 2.  If we got him earlier that would be a huge bonus.

Would we not be better using Zouma/Edwards/Senior/Brockbank and giving them the experience, that would be more like building for the future rather than topping up a retirement fund.

I think we can stay up so we aren't at developing players stage yet

I was optimistic but the numbers don't stack up for me any more, I would have to check but current figures have us finishing on summat like 33 points I think which would require a catastrophic fuck up by them above us.

I think we need a balanced squad with a mix of experience and youth and Wheater fits the bill for me.

So what we saying 46 keep you up 

No chance 

Unlucky with injuries yes but bottom line defending is not improving

If only Hobbs could have stayed fit I think him and Wright would have a solid partnership by now.

You dont mind Hobbs but think Wheater would be a risk? I know who i think will be available to play more games this season and next based on last 10 seasons

I'd take Wheater on loan and send Wright back, I suppose.

Never said wheater would be a risk 

I just don’t want to go back to past players 

but I’d make an exception on big Gaz

You loved Madine  

Ergo it makes sense you like Hobbs

We would probably need about 50 points to give us a chance of staying up this season, we would need to get an average of about 2 points per game until the end of the season.

Just had a look 3rd from bottom last 3 seasons 

44,47 & 47 relegated

Aim for 40

And we would have a great chance

It's not going to be easy but good recruitment and luck with injuries and we have a chance

We cobbled together a team in a day, I'm seeing how we get on with a couple of weeks to sort it

We'd have to get double the amount of points in the second half of the season that we've got in the first half to be anywhere near.

But we might have a better squad with which to do it.

So say we need the lowest total to stay up.

37 more points from 23 games 

That’s got to be 11 wins at least 

Not happening 

and that’s before any further points deduction
