How many threads do we have running now regarding the rumour mill of #blah, #blah, & #blah signing for us or maybe there's a potential??..
I for one am not enjoying the end of the season one little bit..the death of the floodlights, the constant cr@p coming out the boardroom, the complete malaise amongst the supporters and the constant throwing of potential signings into the mix with no substantiated proof to back any names up.
Now, I look at the OS almost hourly hoping against hope for our first summer signing, one that'll get us talking positively, get some fans back on side and bring some good to a successful 2919/2020 campaign.
Yet I wonder will it more in the ilk of Robles or more like Hessenthailer... personally, where we'll be shopping, I think it will be the former..
Until then, the cogs of the rumour mill will keep turning...roll on the 3rd of August and stop me going crazy without my  Saturdays of mental turmoil and torture...UTM til I die...

It's not the best time to be signing players though. Everybody is still under contract and being paid for another 5 weeks. Players will be holding out for high wages at this point and start to lower their demands as the season draws closer and they have fewer options and no income. This means to sign the players that you really want, you have to pay more before somebody else comes in. With that in mind, I'd expect Jolley to be looking at signing better players now and the squad fillers can wait until later on in the summer.

With that in mind, can you tell us when we can expect to have the hairs on our neck stand up?

Well whatever rumours circulate this summer for me it’s quite evident that we’ve missed a target man/hold up type of striker since lennel jl went although at the time I wasn’t his biggest fan these last couple of years has made me realise how vital he was to us he wasn’t the 20+ goal scorer we all wanted but what he did off the ball and in the air was unreal he was a workhorse who challenged everything even if he wasn’t in the team he was so useful at coming on in the last 10-15 mins of games to run the clock down I liked the look of that smith at Macclesfield but I believe he’s signed for Northampton but with this in mind yes we would also love that 20+ Goals striker maybe we go for a lower league striker hungry like the hearns and bogles etc I’m sure mj will have his targets and it hopefully won’t be long till the club announce the first of many quality signings to get season ticket sales up and running I will be purchasing one anyhow but I’m sure many fans are waiting to see who signs etc but there’s plenty of time yet the seasons just finished and maybe I’m being impatient any thoughts on the target man option welcome UTM

The constant insinuations that I'm involved with the club are not only boring, but wrong. I have no involvement with the club, I live nowhere near Grimsby and attend far fewer games than I would like to.

Just because I don't agree with your viewpoint doesn't make my opinion any less valid. And just because I have a bit more business nouse and understanding of accounts than most, does not make me an accountant.

I don't know who we'll sign or when, but my point is that it's difficult to sign players at this time because they are willing to wait a few weeks and see  if anything better comes along whilst they're still getting paid.

That was actually the premise of the thread..to move away from countless names being banded about and try and capture all the rumours in one thread...so hopefully the end game us to prevent even more rumour threads than we have now ..god I hate the closed season...
