Quoted from Jarmo.Is.God
Don't normally post rumour's on here, but thought this one was worth mentioning.

Been told that Hurst has signed the defender, just waiting for all the formative's to go through.

Also got told, that the players he has/ and is in contact with, are players with more than enough capability to sort us out!
Lets hope he can pull some of them off.
No names mentioned, as don't think my source was directly told of any, just that confidence isn't too bad in and around the club!


"let's hope he can pull some of them off"

Is this in lieu of win bonuses? I'm delighted that we're being imaginative in what we're offering prospective players now.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

If Scannell is “not” “Not The Messiah”, then that is a double negative.  Does this then mean that he is The Messiah?   Our saviour.  ☺️

If you read my post I was merely saying what the Telegraph was saying. Nothing was mentioned about the player's club refusing permission, that apparently came through a conversation with radio Hull. So to me the deal has at the mo fallen through. Hopefully the assumption that it will go through once the other club gets a replacement is correct.

Why do I think this has got a Fenty stench about it. I seem to recall a post that said a player was on the way to sign when he got a call, Fenty wanted to change the terms at the last minute, so he turned his car around and went home.

So a club allows Hursty to talk to a player, they discuss this and that and the player likes what he hears. The club like to of load a wage and all's agreed. Until the morning of the signing when, according to RH the club change their mind. I cannot believe a player and club would do that at the last minute, unless something major changed.

Sounds all too familiar. Don't forget my shares, my loans and my way.

Think Hurst said after game at Port Vale that he wasn’t expecting any incoming players until after certain clubs had played on Tuesday night most likely in the “Nobody wants to attend” cup. Thus after the games he announces on Wednesday player expected to sign but maybe other factors have affected this deal as I’m not really expecting JF to have too much input at the present time in contracts but who knows!!

I don't know why some posters keep bringing this red herring up.

There are only 23 league teams that league 2 standard players can "choose."

Most of those clubs will have their own targets so that reduces their "choice" of club to very few indeed. Of those, some will be in the wrong location depending on where the player is in the country at the moment, and of course, that may affect us as every other club.

We have even managed to attract good players in the dire Fenty years, but sadly not enough of them in the same team.

What you do need though is an attractive offer in terms of wages, length of contract and a good story to tell. The story might be a bit of a stretch so we need to offer good money and maybe over the odds to really get the players we want.

Well said. Halfway through the transfer window and no bodies in. We have plenty of games but need some quality in. Perhaps when Hursty identifies who he wants the offer shoud be 'How much do you want and for how long' and then negotiate from their.

Were not in the desperate street yet and would much prefer to points sooner rather then later.

I don't know if they still do but Barrow used to train in Manchester so players would only go to Barrow on a match day

According to Barrow web site they have a new training ground at Egerton Youth Club, Knutsford just off the M6
