We deffo have one of the best all round squads in the league, very tight to choose a single one out of them all. In my opinion Brown has been outstanding.

So far I think it's all positive - it's still early days but usually players improve after they settle in to a new team.  Imagine that if they get better we could be in for a treat.
Pittman needs to stay fit, Scott Brown and Toto not pick up needless bookings and players keep playing football.
One small point though.  I too have been impressed with Clay but only Gateshead onwards.  Is that as we have our wide men back and Brown is almost like have 1.5 players so whoever plays in the middle will do alright.  With Disley we have the ideal partner for Brown should Clay's form drop.
Really looking forward to Lincoln on Tuesday.  UTM

Garth, agree mate but do you think we lack a top striker at this level? I'm not sure we have enough firepower?


Would love to see Bogle or equivilent on a seasons loan

Can't sign anyone on a season's loan now. And I assume the Bogle ship has long since sailed.

Would agree about needing another striker though.

Brown and Magnay for me. Look like they've been playing for town for years

Quoted from Maringer
I think that we need to see a lot more from Mackreth this season. A slow start for him, which is perhaps understandable as he's been in and out of the team, but I do remember him causing us problems in the past. Hopefully, he'll do well when he settles in a bit better.

I thought today was Nsiala's most composed performance for us this season (that I've seen). A lot more comfortable as one of two central defenders and he looked good. I'm slightly concerned that he does tend to overplay it in defensive positions at times and I reckon that this will come to bite him (and us) on the bottom 2 or 3 times this season, but hopefully his all-round ability will more than make up for this.

Clay has been the revelation as he really looked distinctly average in the pre-season games. I wonder if this was perhaps in part down to nerves because he was basically playing for a contract? Must have looked decent in training to win a contract and he's looked pretty good since he came into the team though a little bit hit and miss today. In particular, he barely got involved in the first 15 minutes of the second half (along with one or two of his teammates) and I was a little disappointed about how slow we began that half. Really gave them the impetus.

Brown looks like a proper little terrier of a player and he certainly adds a lot of application as well as a bit of pace to the team. His cross-field attempts at passes are a bit hit and miss at times, but no more than any of the other players.

Magnay looks very solid. Comfortable on the ball, great versatility and he looks like he will be a very important part of our defence this season.

Pittman has done very well up front too. Not seen as much of the pace we'd heard about as I expected, but he's strong and has a decent touch as well - a few excellent lay-offs today and he took his goal very well. It is encouraging that we've got a good few players in the goals already this season. Long may it continue! Still think we need another 'strong'/'big' striker in the squad, however, as we'd be terribly lightweight if both LJL and Pittman are injured/suspended.

Can't really comment about Arnold too much as he's barely played.

Ultimately, I'm pretty pleased with all of the signings so far this season. I don't want to put a hex on any of them by saying which one I think has been the best signing as all look to be pretty good!


Seems a very fair summary to me.

Obviously, judging which signing is best after 7 games is comparable to judging the manager by the same terms, and look at the kerfuffle that caused! Seems we all like to jump to conclusions. Anyway, if I was going to judge on the evidence available I'd say Brown. I thought he looked great against us last season, superb in pre-season games, and has been really influential and consistent in these opening matches. This'll be a better thread next Spring, obviously.

I agree with the OP, if you look at the Conference League certain players have stood out like Nathan Pond when he played in midfield against us for Fleetwood Marcus Maddison always looked dangerous against us amongst others but last season Nsiala, Magnay and Brown really stood out last season Nsiala and Brown for Southport and Magnay played really well i thought he was one of the best FB in the league.

Then Mackreth and Arnold have cause problems against us in the past, Clay has turned out to be a decent signing. Scottie Nielson back to is best aswell.

Liking Nsiala a lot, totally confident, no girl private - not scared of moving out of defence with the ball.

I think they have all done well although not seen the best of Mackreth yet, shocked with how well Clay is playing - taking Disleys spot, he's like the dark horse so far.

Didn't do much when when Arnold came on, but unlucky not to have scored with that half volley on Saturday, can't wait to see what he can do once he's into the swing of it.
