Well, with possible exception of Celtic, the SPL is no higher in general standard that the conference or L2 at a push. I've no idea what the wages are like.
I'm going to go against the grain and say that I'm ambivalent about Devitt. Can't see what the fuss is about him. Technically good but physically weak. Goes missing. Past his best. Big ego. Not @arsed at all.


Just to clarify, are you talking about you or Devitt?

The last thing we need is a winger who can deliver a ball, take a free kick etc etc. Ego? Footballer? If we say no to that we won’t have a team ffs.

Did you notice and understand the use of the word ‘exception’?

Just because I’m being peevish, doesn’t mean you have to be. Calm down. You like him. So do lots of others. Fine. I’m not bothered. It’s just a view.

He's nigh on 30 and known for his inconsistency. Carlisle are nothing special. Player of the year - great. I'm not interested. Just my opinion. I'm never big on bringing players back (although I'd make an exception for  Amond). I can't see any way that Hull, or a club in the Champ/L1 would go after a 30 year old from L2.
I'd rather us go after skilful players in their early 20's with something to prove.


Love the bit about carlisle.fyi they finished just 3 points off the play offs,a standard we can only dream of attaining

What the hell are we doing wanting to sign a lad that’s just got the 27 goals + 27 assists in the last 3 season (100 appearances) why aren’t we signing messi or Ronaldo. I’m sure they’d jump at the chance of joining a lower half league two team with one of the lowest budgets in the EFL. I can’t believe some of the nonsense I read on here.

Whoever we sign, the key thing is that we use them in a way that plays to their strengths. Better to get the best out of an average player than waste a more skilful player in the wrong role. No point putting a square peg in a round hole.  Look at Matt. Was a walking disaster for us, but in the Newport side was a real handful.

Jolley must come up with a planned approach, and sign players who will do specific jobs in that system. So far he has had two transfer windows and as far as I can see we are still a long way from having any settled system. At times the players looked totally lost last season.

I think this window and the first few weeks of the new season will be make or break for him.

GTFC under Jolley need an identity
The point about Matt and Newport is a good one - not my cup of tea in terms of playing style but at least they have one
We are neither a fast-paced good footballing team or a direct 'lump it to the target man' team
We fall between two stools although I suspect he prefers the former option

MJ needs to resolve this issue over the summer otherwise it will spell trouble for him and us

A 'Devitt-type' is exactly what we need - creativity and goals alongside the 'legs' of Harry and Hess

Think he'd be a good signing, was crying out for wide men last season. Could location play into our hands on this one? Hull lad isn't he?
