Right. Just over 24 hours until permanent window closes.
Who and in what position should we be realistically chasing before 5pm tomorrow.

I would like us to go back for Ali Koiki (Season long loan) and a tall mobile striker. Someone similar to Callum Dyson, the lad we had on loan from Everton.

Seems signings from abroad are off until January but was wondering what thoughts people have. Hopefully a busy day??

If we are in the unusual postion of actually having money to spend Jolley needs to get on the phone to Newport and make an offer for Podge NOW

Likes it at BP (no one else seems at all keen on it)
We like him
Proven goalscorer
Unfinished business at GTFC as he was stupidly allowed to leave before he could play for Town in the football league
Opinion is we don't want a big target man up front so how about a stocky goal sniffer

Amond started for Newport v Mansfield last Saturday so I can't see them just letting him go to a rival.

On the other hand, Joss Labadie - a striker who did very well for them before getting injured in 2017 is a free agent having left the club.

I can see us panicked into buying some total dross. In MJ I dont trust.

My expectations are now lowered - I'd happily take a combative, ginger-haired midfielder in the twilight of his career. Oh f*ck, Cleethorpes beat us to it.

My enthusiasm and expectations have diminished greatly,

I am not expecting us to sign any decent striker and I do not expect us to finish any higher than 14th,

That should please the club

Quoted from chaos33
Amond started for Newport v Mansfield last Saturday so I can't see them just letting him go to a rival. .


That all depends on what the mystical (if not imaginery) six figure fee is that we are alleged to have - money talks and anyway are Newport really a rival (i thought they might finish top half)

The window doesn’t really close until 31st August. We can make loaning signing until that date. We can make a loan signing with an agreement already in place for it to be made permenent on 1st January until that date. And we can sign any player currently under contract elsewhere as long as they are released by that date.

But of course that won’t stop a couple of panic buys before 5PM tomorrow.

I would say that we are slowly working our way down the list of targets. Bowman and Angol we know we've made bids for, then any others we don't know about, so we will eventually arrive at someone who is surplus to requirements somewhere, and the deadline is approaching, so the desperate ones will be getting pushed by their agents. A signing of the Vernon variety seems possible.
