Transfer Gossip

While it’s disappointing we didn’t add to our ranks and frustrating that IE’s target(s) didn’t materialise on the day, it’s pleasing to know we haven’t panicked and gone for just anybody in order to boost our numbers.

If the individual isn’t right then it can do more harm than good. The recruitment policy after Tobias has left  has so far been spot on.

Much better doing your recruitment early in the window and getting these lads established in the squad.

All 9 new additions, including making last year’s loans permanent, will all have an important role to play this season. Dixon, Johnston, Sheehan, Baka and Afolayan have already made themselves starters in our first 11. Kachunga looks promising with 2 great assists so far from the subs bench, hopefully more to come here. And Aimson and Amaechi looked good preseason before injuries.

All in all a very good transfer window.

Amaechi, Aimson & Bakoyoko will all be back with us before too long, Kachunga should hopefully be somewhere approaching match fit in the same time frame.

We are far from thin on the ground options wise with a full squad

Squad looks fine for mid table when everyone's fit, but they aren't.  I'm a bit concerned about the next 10 or so league games, I know Delf scored last night but his performance only increased thoughts that he's struggling, couldn't get into the game at all.  Kachunga clearly not making an impact yet and anyway is more of a wide player than striker.

We could do worse than getting Shaun Miller back on a short term contract as cover in case Doyle is injured (or another relatively fit and available out of contract striker, I'm sure IE will have a list).

Signed for Nantwich Town a few weeks ago.

Blimey, he's better than that.  Out of interest, I wonder how binding a contract is with a Northern Prem team, not thinking of Miller particularly, that was just a throw away idea, but if someone's playing for Athy Colls or Warrington, and Sheff Wed or Sunderland want to give them a contract, surely an arrangement can be made.  Or maybe not?

Any decent ones at that level tend to be on a contract. Rare for clubs to demand daft money though as they don’t want to be seen to be standing in a player’s way

He couldn’t get in the side in L2 ffs

True, but neither could Gordon or Brockbank and they are now the back ups for John and Jones.  Miller was back up for Doyle and for the next couple of months we arguably don't have one.  We need better than Miller for league one, I agree.  Just not sure who that is.  It'll be sorted, its just idle chat.

He looked like he could score a goal no doubt but his workrate off the ball and closing down is what makes me think why IE didn’t keep him

Hope they are back and firing in time for October 16 when we play those silly cunts from Wigan.

Decent guy but if we were SO desperate we could recall Politic who's not yet got 1 minute on for Port Vale.

Why would he get a go for us if PV dont think hes ready, either

What I said was .... "IF .... we were SO desperate (as to consider borrowing Miller from Natwich Town) then recalling Politic would be a better option".

I'm not sure that's a controversial position to take.

Also do we know he can be re-called??

Obviously I don't know but it can usually be done. It's not like Vale have built their season around him.

Politic isn’t ready but he’s rated by IE, hence the loan but a contract offand the lack of minutes at PV

Big injury to return from, his fitness and strength will be nowhere near L1 level but he’s training with a L2 side to get his fitness up and minutes under his belt, can’t rush him

aye I said this weeks back

Maybe the plan was for him to be ready from the start but it’s just taking a little longer, hopefully he’s back upto speed for the 22/23 season

Squad looks mid table.  How have you come to that conclusion?
