Would assume from this that O'Hanlon will be on his way

Not the most obvious weakness slot to fill, but I suppose it will give an element of cover if O'Hanlon does leave the club. Just for a minute I thought we were swapping them for Trotman :?

Another 2 possibly 3 to come in for Saturday apparently. If we’re raiding Sunderland for any more I’d like to see Adam Bale come in. Quite similar player to Jamie Chandler which is what we’re missing at the moment.

Looks that way, as this new lad is bound to be first choice, otherwise what is the point in bringing him here.

Apparently his parents wanted to name him after their favourite Beach Boys song, but got a letter wrong on his birth certificate!

Would assume that he is to go left wing instead of Henshall, untill O'Hanlon leaves of course :D

Kokolo was a considerable improvement on Henshall but needs a target man in the middle as well a a big midfielder who can feed him the ball. So far only 1 out of the 3 loans needed

I was completely miffed when I heard the team and subs on Saturday - where were these 2 /3 additional players we needed on loan? We needed fresh legs on Saturday coming from the bench instead we had kids - fair enough if it was kids from Sunderland/Newcastle or Boro.
Getting one in is again just a half baked strategy - although we don't have a bad side - we don't have a side that is capable of wining games at the min - TW is getting too pig headed with this side.

As he said in the paper on Saturday the competition for places is what they are playing for.The only places we have available are whether you play defence,midfield or up front not even the bench comes into it

So where are these other 3 loan signings we were promised on Friday? Someone at the match Saturday said delayed until Monday but it is now Wednesday and still nothing.
Hope they haven’t taken one look at things and changed their minds because if we can’t get loan signings in we are truly done for.

Exactly - false promises - with zero feedback on why this has not happened. I know we are a part time club but the communication on the team, injury's, potential loan signings is severely lacking and needs improving. As a fan I feel dis-engaged with whats going on with the club at the moment.

Oh grow up. Chances are they haven’t signed - whether that is a now or forever situation who knows but don’t expect a blow by blow account of transfer dealings.

Chances are the Friday date was what was hoped for, frankly if there wasn’t certainty it shouldn’t have been said - but I suppose if they don’t say that people are crying into their cereal about lack of communication and knowing what is going on.

I am sure when there is newsworthy news it will be announced. Just as with the recent departures / signings a news story was released when there was news to release not speculation.

Assume that if there is no news there is no news. Now do you feel like you are up to speed?

disengaged because you haven't found out about a signing before it's occurred? Name me a team in the lower leagues that is linked to a loan player in public before it actually happens?

If you want to criticise things then fair enough, but I can't understand this one

Will it?

What is Henshall's injury and how long is he likely to be out for?

What is up with Ainge and how long is he likely to be out for?

What about Hughes? Again, what is his injury and how long?

The club has made no comment on the above three, I'd say that would be newsworthy.

Think from what AW said in his feedback is that they have to negotiate loans on zero cost so can't be easy. Hope fans realise this.

Tbf I hadn’t really been paying attention in terms of length of injuries. Generally if someone says “x player is injured” I tend to assume they are injured until they are fit for selection again.

Is that not the sort of question you would expect to be asked as part of an interview rather than a news announcement anyway?

Hughes dislocated shoulder but for sure he will be back before long, totally committed, Henshall dislocated hair gel awaiting to see a doctor at Boots but has a letter from his mum so is ok, Ainge punctured ego could be out all season but his mum said don't listen to those spiteful darlington rabble I think your the greatest and gave him an extra fish finger for his tea!

Weren't we supposed to have multiple additions *last week*. The final training session before the weekend will be today, and we still don't have anyone else involved.

Will it be 5 kids from the youths on the bench again? :roll: At least when we bring in youth from the big 3, they'll have likely played a few games at Premier League 2 level.

It's frustrating to say the least. The sales of Styche and Syers didn't come out of the blue so forward planning re bringing other players in was obviously needed, but didn't happen, or hasn't happened yet!

It's embarrassing to have a bench full of players so young they can't really be used - the league we are in is a proper league after all!

Premier League 2 means nothing. Its chalk and cheese when compared to our level.

I don't buy into this young bench, can't play youngsters blah blah blah. It's obviously needs must now and although in an ideal world they wouldn't be dropped in like this, we are going to have to because clearly we can't either afford or attract loanees from the 'Big 3'. Furthermore, what difference does a youngster from an academy have over a youngster from our own youth system? Maybe giving our own youngsters a run of games might, just might, unearth a gem that may be a potentially budget boosting transfer???

On a side note, I too haven't felt as disconnected from the club in all the time that l have supported the club over the past 20 years. It really is demoralising seeing the club imploding as it currently seems to be.

Should we not be utilising the resources of the club to maximum effect. Vaulx still out in the cold, not to mention Caton. Any grudges need to be put aside.

You can't be disconnected from something you were never connected to in the first place. Prior to us becoming fan owned non of us were connected in any way apart from being paying customers and having to put up with all the shite successive owners put us through. I don't remember Fans Forum's, Netcafes etc, before 2012.

It's a huge difference to our own youngsters, who looking at some of them, are probably more used to playing school football. I'm trying not to be dismissive or mean, and the progression of Saunders and hopefully Glover is a good thing, but most of them look like children. They're not ready, and they're there because we have no one else.

Whoever stated they didn't see the difference. Look at Kokolo, then stick one of the kids on from our bench. That'll be your difference, and that *is* chalk and cheese. Like it or not, the kids playing in the Premier League 2 are an absolute mile away from our kids in terms of ability. We might find the odd gem, but as a rule of thumb, that is the situation.

Completely agree... I'm sorry but to say that our youngsters and Boro's are chalk and cheese is miles away from the mark, that's why our youngsters play for Darlo and those youngsters play against opposition from across Europe... I watched Boro's youngsters play Paris St Germain youngsters a few seasons ago in some Champions league type tournament, may have been U17s, our lads aren't on the same planet never mind level. If they were they wouldn't be playing for us.

Perhaps these big clubs are looking at Wright and wondering whether anything positive could come from spending a month training with and playing for him, probably set them way back in their development and erode their confidence.
