I saw that Anthony vanden Borre has been released by Anderlecht.

Offer him a player/coach position as he could still provide cover at right back.

Its never going to happen but we can all dream


Why even look at foreign players? Not going to happen because of brexit. Don’t you remember that Jonny foreigners were holding back British talent?

I've just been having a look at players who are out of contract and those who we might "realistically" sign and found three who might be options.

Charlie Colkett is a player who's name popped up. He's played under Hurst before at Shrewsbury, and is a central midfielder. He's just been released by Ostersunds in Sweden, so might be looking for a move back to England? He's a central midfielder.

Jermaine Hylton could be another option. Same agent as Sousa, recently released by Newport. Left winger, although that position isn't a "priority".

Emyr Huws is a central midfielder. He's be on the edge of realistic/unrealistic for me though. Again, been managed by Hurst before whilst at Ipswich.

Colkett looks to be training with Cheltenham.

Hylton provides the most pun fun.

Thread on the Darlo forum here, attempting to put a value on their striker Luke Charman. General consensus seems to be around the £50k mark; is that beyond our means?

His value will be limited by the fact he's played such a limited number of games in his career but you have to speculate to accumulate. If he came in and did the business then he's probably put another 0 on his value at least.

It shouldn’t be if all is to believed, I have no idea who’ll be coming in but I know PH will have targets that he thinks will improve us, whether he gets them or not remains to be seen. I was a bit surprised we brought a LB in yesterday though.

Hmm. That’s maybe a theoretical, fans’ valuation but I’m not sure I can see them getting that for him, especially as he evidently wants to take the opportunity to play at a higher level and wants to go when he learns of an offer. I guess Darlo’s best chance of getting some decent money for him is if there’s competition for his signature and he’s open to moving to more than one club.

I don't see a LB as a surprising signing, given we only have Crookes, and hes not in great form

See that Charman of Darlington is a goalscorer BUT also has been sent off twice this season with a number of bookings.


Baldrick ! The only impression you can do is that of a man with no talent !!

Matt Dean - "Are you interested in Luke (Charman)?"

Paul Hurst - *long pause* "No"

I'm not entirely convinced by his answer. 7m47s onwards here if you want to listen for yourself and see what you think - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0bh2kc9
