True and on a psychological level if we started finishing our chances more it would give us more of a boost and heads would drop for the opposing teams. So in that respect it might help us concede less goals.

We could always sign a defender as well.

Is there any reason why we think we’d able to get him though? Are they going to part with their top scorer on Jan? Is he out of contract in summer?

 

18 months to go on his contract.

It’s a fee if he signs.

No idea if we can spend or not but I suspect no one does on here either.

What we do know is players at Morecambe want to move to Bolton as it’s a bigger move same division or not.

Lets see what Jan brings.

The rate my Mrs is ploughing money into Home Bargains I reckon BWFC’s finances are tip top

When you think that Doyle scored 50% more league goals than Stockton last season folk might be getting a bit carried away with this one ?

It’s to have another option up top and completion for places. We are light in the CF role

Assuming we keep Del at the end of his loan we will have him, Doyle, Tequilla , Dapo. and Bakayo plus Delfonso and even Politic so upto 7 for 3 places. Even without Politic and accepting Delfonso is not going to contribute enough our reason for signing has to be increased quality rather than numbers. 
I have been a supporter of Doyle but bad miss Saturday is Stockton the answer ? Depends on £££ I guess

Aye I get that, was more a reaction to folk I've seen getting carried away although that's my own fault for going on other social media platforms.

They’re playing in league one for a reason. Need to curb the enthusiasm. No need for that 😁

When we played them in the 1-0 away last season at the final whistle Evatt could be seen having a good chat with him on the iFollow cameras with Stockton nodding in agreement could have been a we'll come & get you if you don't go up. Heavily linked with him in the summer for what ever reason he signed a new contract at the shrimps & we ended up getting Baka who could be really good in this division but he's a proper sick note it seems like. Personally weren't arsed in the summer about not getting him as he helped them go up but didn't have the best goal returns in L2 last season but this season he's top scorer in the entire league & scoring bangers for fun. He'd get in most teams in this league on current form wether he can be consistent is another story, Evatt obviously is a big fan of his & Doyler at 33 would be better suited as a super sub coming on the last 30 against tired legs when they're getting sloppier & stretched. A no 10 will do very nicely aswell, seeing as IE says Sarce was going to be upgraded on anyway he should have somebody lined up but we seriously missed a boat on that Twine on a free he would have been perfect but atleast we got Dapo aye.

I haven't see anywhere near enough of Stockton to make a judgement. He's certainly showing up well this season. Ultimately though our ambition has to be a return to the Championship in the next couple of years. Would Stockton thrive at that level? I hope that's the question being asked by IE and his staff.

Over these next couple of windows for me the litmus test for new signings becomes "how would they do in the Championship?". Granted it's not an easy judgement to make when you are signing League 2 and League 1 players on the strength of potential. To meet my litmus test with these types signings you need exceptionally reliable scouting.
