I hear Brocky’s attitude isn’t what it should be. I have every faith Evatt will either change that or ship him out before the season starts.

To be fair, we’ve had some strange managers in his time around 1st team. Make or break for him. His choice as to whether he makes a footballer

I think Brockbank could benefit from some weight training but from what I've seen of him he's similar to Senior. Good on the ball, not afraid of a challenge and reads the game well enough. I'd like him in that RCB position especially as the plan is to get the ball down and play some football. 

I think as a right back it wasn't his strongest position, lacks the pace to be impactful there, I think at first he was getting Holding comparisons which was clearly optimistic but there's definitely a good ball playing defender in there. 

I would very much question the suggestions of attitude issues, when he was leading the young lads at the start of the season he was nothing short of exceptional attitude wise.

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.

His wiki page already has Bolton Wanderers 2020 -

Make of that what you will.

Brockbank is a grafter and will fill a shirt, nothing more. 

Never got the Zouma love-in. First touch is horrendous, second touch even worse and his positioning is dreadful considering he's not exactly 17. He'll play a few games in Swansea's U23 and be lost without trace by next summer.

We need an experienced first team keeper. We have a good youngster in Alexander.

Change of coach reminds me of when Coyle threw out Fred Barber. You know throwing out bloody good experience to get your own man in.

It's a sense of weakness not taking the best at your disposal.

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

Pretty obvious Hill didnt rate him at all .It was 50/50 with me .I think that there is probably a player in there but maybe the lad has cloth ears .Worth a gamble in Swansea's position though .Good luck to him.

Bolton. Name of Billy Crellin now on goalkeeper radar. Top kiddie at Fleetwood. Where keeper coach Gilkes came from. Poss loan.

Has Gilks even been confirmed? 

We aren't going to put a 20 yr old keeper with 20 senior appearances as 1st choice in what could be a make or break season.

Nixon seems to just post a lot of speculative shite that often doesn't come to pass.

Zouma had hill under minding him when things went Wrong he had never played at senior level At the start of the season  he was thrown in The deep end no senior centre half to learn off . 
 He as plenty of time to learn is trade and have a good Career at is age Swansea might make a good player of him yet

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.

Great insight, cheers.  I'm looking forward to seeing White.  Strange one with Rooney that he seems happy to stay in the conference, it sounds like he could have had a more sparkling career.

I agree.

Can't win them all, and we move on.

If he's gone, then best of luck to him.

What kind of absolute mushroom takes the trouble of editing some league 2 players wiki profile to put bolton in it, just for some kind of a laugh? 

What a waste of time and energy.

As you know, the official reason given for Rooney leaving Barrow was that he didn't want to play at EFL level. However it could have been that Barrow wouldn't match Stockport's wages for a 29 year old or that Barrow wouldn't give him a 3 year contract at that age. Obviously only speculation and I know nothing more than anybody else but some Barrow fans seem to think he may have moved to Stockport so that you can get him on loan from them or could sign him when your transfer embargo is over which I'm guessing would be earlier than the 2 year agreement with Barrow not to sign any of their contracted players. I suppose the main reason for that speculation is that Evatt and Rooney have the same agent but, as I said earlier, Stockport seem to have rich owners now and are going to make a bit effort for promotion this season. As for White, I read today that Evatt has described him as doing a bit of everything and I would agree with that. He gets around the pitch well,  keeps possession well, keeps his position well and is a decent tackler. Unlike Rooney, he doesn't hit many long passes but doesn't give the ball away. I don't think he will score too many goals but a good allround midfield player. I'll be interested to see how he gets on at a higher level.

I doubt Stockport agree to sign players and loan /sell them to us so we can get out of a contract
