Whoever it is, they've handed in a transfer request apparently

Transfer speculation is great fun :lol:

It's a positive sign TW is adding competition and freshening things up. My slight concern is, these signings are Midland based players which means a hell of a lot of travelling.

But they are both only training twice a week instead of 5 times like they were....


Twice a week (minimum) sat in a car for 10hrs (15hrs if there's a home game). Irrespective of the circumstances, that amount of travelling eventually takes its toll either on a personal level or to the point of affecting performance levels.

Depends whether they have another job (and considering they've been at FT Nuneaton then I imagine they don't have another job).

If this is their only job then the travelling wouldn't be that big a deal

10 hours in a car over 2 days is fuck all. Each 5 hour round trip would be broken up with a training session.

As has already been said, if Darlo is their only job (or if they have a part time job around it) then I can't see a problem.

The biggest problem I can foresee is if TW gets sacked - suddenly they can't car share with him. Although even then they could car share with each other if there are 2 or 3 of them.

It's been clear that since the loss of Ferguson we have lacked a player that can carry the ball 40/50 yards forward, and take on a man. Hopefully Mills can give us this with his pace.

Trotman also should give us something different on the right too. Marrs is very good defensively, but never gets forward. Losing Hunter and his pace down the right was a big blow. Marrs at right-back and Scott at left-back has recently offered nothing, hopefully Galbraith & Trotman can give teams something to think about.

Hopefully a centre-forward to come in still. Either someone with a bit of height or someone with some pace and movement.

Oh, and also in regards to the striker Tommy is trying to sign, it wouldn't entirely surprise me if he goes in for Kabongo Tshimanga who is currently at Boston. He played under Wright for Corby in 2015 and scored 5 in 10. Has 9 in 24 for Boston this season.

Did he score against us a few weeks ago?

It would entirely surprise me.

Is he from Leicester and can he car share?

I still think that if Wright is going for a player that has played with him at a previous club, and the striker is keen to come, that the stand out one is Spencer Weir Daley, currently at Redditch United.

Other than that - Chambers (who would cost a good wedge, and apparently didn't fancy the travelling) and a very outside bet being Styche.
