Transfer Gossip


Recommended Posts

It’s often two games a week so we will need options, especially with the high intensity game Evatt favours.. I think Darcy and Politic will get plenty of games.

Both Politic and Darcy are excellent prospects, but that's all they are atm as neither have shown any sort of consistency of form thus far.

Most of the players we've brought in so far have shown that consistency so I'd fully expect them to be first choice, with Politic and Darcy as back-up.  If this isn't the case and Evatt sees enough in them to put them in the starting XI then it's a win/win.

A bit harsh. Our two were playing in a Keith Hill side; one that was poor and had its players chopped and changed regularly. 

Best to judge when they're all in the same squad.

I don't think it's harsh.  I've not said they're not good players or that they won't become good players.

The circumstances of last season certainly didn't help either of them, but we can't say they're definitely going to become brilliant players just because we had a dickhead in charge last season.

If they're as good as we hope they'll be then they'll come through and they'll shine.

I certainly hope not. I know it's likely we sign White at the end of his deal but still, Darcy and Politic are excellent prospects and more than good enough to do very well at this level. Politic in particular.

Me too.  I know I'm in danger of over rating them because they are "our's", but 2 months ago everyone was assuming Darcy,  Politic and Crawford would be way too good to want to hang around in Div 2.  Now we are talking about them not getting into the team ahead of someone that's never played above Conference level, and a Colchester player who's CV isnt anything to write home about.  No disrespect to either of them but I'd be amazed if they are any better, I just hope players are picked on merit not on who signed them.

White was good when he came in on loan to Barrow during last season last season but, as you say, you can't be sure if a player can step up a level until you see them for a few matches. However, as somebody who watched both Barrow and Portsmouth last season I would say that there isn't a huge difference between even Division 1 and the National League so I would expect White to be a very decent player for you. Although I wouldn't go as far as saying Barrow were a better team than Portsmouth I would without doubt say they were a far more entertaining team to watch with a far better style of play so I'd be surprised if you didn't get football worth watching under Ian Evatt.

Minus the long diagonals 😂

Good because there might not be anyone in the upper tiers to throw the balls back

Santos at 6’5 & Taft at 6’4 I sense another Wheater and Beevers season approaching 

Has this Santos signed yet?

I know a Barrow fan who watches Portsmouth, but this is far too sensible a post for him to come up with 🤔🤣

I'll be amazed if Crawford doesn't start the first match of the season.
