Quoted from Stew0_0
He's a Left Back according to Rovers website, former Bolton. Could only see him signed as cover for Ring if at all true but personally would like to see us sign a 1st choice left back with the qualities of a Danny Andrew type.
Only a rumour so taken with a pinch of salt


I agree. If Ring is first choice then we are aiming low. He is not the answer to any question. Pre season will not add pace , power or trickery to his toolbag.

I liked what I saw of Alex Jones when he was here. He went on to score 15 in 37 for Port Vale and Bradford the season after in League One, reaching the play-offs in the process so clearly he’s got something then.

Since then, he’s suffered an injury that put him out for the best part of a year, struggled to get back in at Bradford and didn’t pull up any trees on loan at Cambridge, so there’s a risk he’s not the same player.

Still, if our budget is modest as expected, we’re going to have to take the odd calculated risk to be successful. I’d rather we took risks on young players like Jones (particularly with having already proven themselves at a higher level) where there’s a potential upside in terms of a future transfer fee if it comes off than ageing senior pros in the mould of John Welsh who at best has a couple of decent seasons and then retires and at worst turns out to be a past it, shandy-drinking woman beater.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

If he doesn’t get realistic with wage demands he won’t be coming anyway

No but it will add fitness and sharpness after an extended break. We’ve got to at least give him a chance after a pre-season. He didn’t get a long break between the Swedish league finishing and him having to play due to Fox’s suspension.

Garrett I don't really know much about and on paper he doesn't seem too great but he is still young so he may still develop, Hanson isn't the most nataural footballers in the world but he's a big unit he's a handful to play against and he's effective in his own way, Alex Jones did score 9 in 19 for Vale in league 1 so there are glimpses of what seems to be a goalscorer in him, but this was pre Injury so who knows what he is like post injury.

Quoted from Hagrid
Was told this today also- regarding both. Looked up hanson- think it was 7 goals in 2 years. Thats town


Lump Jones had scored a total of 10 League goals in the two seasons before he joined us.  He was a good signing so no reason that Hanson wouldn't be, especially if you take into account that he has been playing at a higher level. If he's a proper target man, it doesn't matter if he only just gets into double figures. He's there to make the space and chances for other attackers.

I would take Hanson every day.
He is the player we missed all season IMO, he might not score 20+, but he will help others i.e Vernam boost his record

What I would give to sign a player the calibre of Lump now
