Personally I think players will be more difficult to attract this season. Going into last season we had the momentum of Jolley's great escape in the last 10 games as something to build on.

Fast forward a year and we have the same manager but stuttered to a 17th place finish, scored very few goals. In fact, you take 4 games out of it (Yeovil, Notts County, Tranmere, Newport) and goals for column is even shambolic.

There is no momentum and if we want to attract up and coming players, our plodding along is not going to help their career as we look like falling through the trap door sooner rather than later.  We are favourites for relegation and Jolley can't deny responsibility for our league position last season.


IMO I wouldn't take any notice of being relegation candidates.  Why us? seeing that we didn't finish as low as some others.  Yes we didn't score enough goals, but how many chances did we create, i'm pretty sure we have got more results if we had taken more of those chances.  Macclesfield would be favourites for me, purely based on financial issues (non payment of wages) which might impact on signing of players.

We didn't finish as low as others but look at the circumstances. Morecambe confess to having a tiny budget whilst it is constantly banded about that ours is "competitive". You have to look at what is being done to compensate for the poor finish. FGR had ambition and threw money at it to finish in the play offs. Notts County being full of disinterested journeymen bought Macclesfield a reprieve but as a young player, I would jump up at the chance to work with Sol Campbell and Andy Cole, even if they may get sacked come November. If a team like Macclesfield or Morecambe go down it is sort of expected so doesn't look as disastrous on the CV as being involved in a relegated Notts County team for example.

Judging by Jolley's recruitment so far I think we will be trying to sign players from this league and above rather than taking a punt on some players from below who have had to work hard and know what it is like to work a full day to make ends meet. A player from below would jump up at the opportunity of a chance in the league whereas a player from this league or the one above might think a bad season could be the end of them as a professional footballer.

It has been awfully quiet from the club and given how much further along we were this season as opposed to last, I would have expected some bodies through the door by now.

I don’t recall us ever doing a lot of business early, and I think it’s largely related to having a mediocre, at best, budget to work with.

The reality is that better players will have interest from a number of clubs and are in no rush to make a decision in case a better offer comes along. The only way around that really is throw enough money at them that they simply can’t afford not to accept it on the spot.

Evidently, we’re not going to be doing that which does mean that you wait longer and / or miss out on your main targets. As others have called out, there’s a difference between hope and expectation but I’m certainly not expecting anything different to the last few summer transfer windows; a couple of interesting looking signings and a base of solid but ultimately unexciting ones, and maybe a left field punt or two.

I don’t think that will be enough to take us from where we are to anything like troubling the play-offs, and though I’d love to be proved wrong I just can’t make a case for it.

Northampton have signed Nicky Adams and Alan McCormack today. Two quality signings. A double signing like that on top of that Warburton lad they signed means they're OFFICIALLY GOING FOR IT™. Expect them to be pushing for promotion this season.

I don’t know why, but seeing the Cobblers fall through the trapdoor would give me pleasure.

Aye, I've got a bit of a dislike of them due to Ian Atkins being a classless cunt after the playoff final.

David Wheater apparently going to Salford. Ridiculous signing.

Another one that looks like a quality signing is Jevani Brown going from Cambridge to Colchester.

Scunny started going about their business pretty well too.

Ryan Lowe raiding Bury.

The promotion race looks set to be a bit tougher this season, in my opinion.
