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.

Cheers - good to get that perspective.  I suppose the only thing you cant include there is a comparison of Barrow's players with the BW one's that have remained.  Did you choose to watch the 2 clubs with the most number of miles seperating them?  Southampton and Workington next season?

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

They definitely dont have the Wheavers habit of scoring headed goals.  Santos scored one last season and it was a shot.

No. I only saw Bolton against Pompey once and that's not enough to make a judgement. The Barrow/Portsmouth link is because I was born in Barrow and lived there until I moved to work in Portsmouth many years ago. So have an interest in both teams. Pompey and Bolton ended up in the same boat with good teams collapsing because their owners ran out of money and ended up in the hands of charlatans. Over the years that Barrow have been in the National League I try to get to as many away matches in London and the South as I can manage even though it's been painful to watch until Ian Evatt took over and transformed the team. You've now got Tom White on loan and he's a good player who does most things well but the 3 outstanding players in the team were Rooney, Quigley and Platt and 2 will still be at Barrow next season although you might well have got Platt if you had been able to sign him permanently. Rooney was the best of all and the best midfield player I've seen in all the years I've watched matches in the National League although his record was very uninspiring before he came to Barrow and Evatt played the football which meant a skilful midfield player could blossom instead of watching the ball being hit over his head for most of the game! I wouldn't be surprised at all if you end up getting him either on loan or permanent (although Stockport have an owner with money and are ambitious) because he has the same agent as Evatt.

Are we trying to appease the BLM by signing Blackman? We signed White earlier in the week so now we have to sign a Blackman for equality. 

Mr Grey is signing next week 😊

 This is good insight and sounds genuine, thanks.

If Ebony and Ivory isn’t used for their compilation video, Shazza out

I was trying to find any player with the surname coon but failed. There’s basketball players and American footballers with the surname but seemingly no proper football player. Although I suppose we have had a basketball player at centre forward...

No great loss, I get he has potential and he played in a poor team last season, but I’m not sure he was that good at defending tbh.

Plus I also thought senior and edwards looked the better defenders.

Senior yes, Edwards absolutely not. 

I think Zouma on the right of a back 3 would have been a decent option but I'm more than happy with Brockbank and a signing with a bit more experience. I've seen Rhys Bennett being rumoured.

Zouma has potential but seriously needs to work on his positioning and rashness if he’s to make it.

Wish him all the best, not concerned that he’s gone though.

Edwards looked good before injury. A bit shaky after that, and he’s no spring chicken. He’s 24 this year. It’s make or break for him now

I’m not part of the Brocky fan club I’m afraid, firstly he’s not a kid, he’s 22 and I haven’t seen him have a single good game. Even worse was his shocker at Gillingham, where he played a key role in 3 of the goals conceded. He needs to go out on loan and let’s see how he gets on. As of now, he is simply not good enough, even in the 4th Division, it’s sad to say!

Me neither, Zouma has massive potential disappointed we didn’t retain him.

Don’t think Hill was convinced with Brockbank either. Sure he was available for a while and didn’t make the squad. 

I think he can play but couldn’t tell you what position. Too short for centre half perhaps, filled in at right back, and also seen him considered as a midfielder too. Similar to Threlkeld in that respect.
