The 2 signings so far suggest to me seem to signal a statement of intent if nothing else then in terms of wage structure being altered I can`t see either being cheap in League 2 terms ? Really hoping these are the first of half a dozen or so quality signings and I just wonder who is agreeing to bankroll it?

Bankrolling? We have signed two forwards which were desperately needed to even get us to mid-table.

My point is Lew it must have been agreed to get players in and meet higher wage demands if required . Both these players will command higher wages than I bet we have paid out pro rata for years?

Lets see if you're still saying that at the end of the window. 2 decent (on paper) signings out of how many needed to be challenging the top of the table?

Like me, we keep hoping Micky.

Read the original post I agree ideally think Town needed around 6 quality additions and probably a couple more squad players  2 attackers DONE 2 midfielders and 4 defenders

I don`t hear anywhere near as many rumours as I would like to BUT I will say I was expecting a signing from Derby according to information recieved .A few high end loanee youngsters in the mould of Embleton and I will be chomping at the bit for August . Nice of Town to push the boat out rather than put a sticking plaster over the holes in the rubber dinghy for a change.

Are we pushing the boat out, really?  None of us really know that.  So far,  a few players have left, and now the money saved from that is being used to bring other players in.  No transfer fees paid.  Presumably the highest earner (McKeown) remains so.  Currently the playing staff are coming in under budget, or at least I hope so as we need to make more signings.

I'm sceptical of 'senior' players being signed as there aren't many like Futcher or Birtles who really add anything, but I remain hopeful.  I'm hoping for a relatively small squad of quality.  So far we have lots of youth players in the squad, and I feel they will HAVE to step up this season and not just make up the numbers, otherwise we'll be in a relegation scrap again.

Like Cricklewood says we will have to wait and see what we end up with but you can`t argue that these 2 incomings are anything but quality league 2 signings . I am optimistic that more will follow and Hanson in interview gives that pointer so let`s enjoy today`s news and cross our fingers for more.
