Two more to come in - central defender and midfield, both from Barnsley, according to Stoddart in the echo.

Wonder if this is the link Tommy has forged from when Harvey Saunders had a bit of a trial there.

Where is Jack Vaulks at the moment?

Last I heard he was playing at Pickering Town, a club well below where he should be playing in my humble opinion.

Answering my own question, Pickering till the end of January. They are in the Evo-Stik 2nd tier, same as Marske, not that low.

Too low for a player of Vaulks quality.

Does anyone actually know how many games Vaulks has actually played for us?

It seems that he has been put on a pedestal by a few of our supporters and I am struggling to understand why. He has looked a good player when he has played but I don't understand the way people think him coming back will be the answer to our defensive shortcomings.

We're not saying that. We're saying he can't be any worse than Burn and might be competition for places with Burn.

Any loan news?

PS - I cannot believe Burn has played league football. Has looked all over the shop when I have seen him. Vaulks cant be as bad, surely?

I think a lack of confidence and not a long run in the team could be causing that.

I think, a long time ago, a certain David Speedie came to us from Barnsley. If the anticipated loanees are half as good as he was.......

Any news on these new loanees?

For me, these acquisitions are key. If it's a flimsy playmaking midfielder then it adds nothing. We need a no nonsense beast, who's going to break up play and generally be a menace.

Palmer was getting mentioned a lot during the Alty game & seems to have made some positive impact

Thought Palmer was decent, athletic and energetic, reasonably strong with him and Elliott doing ok in midfield against a team who dominated us in the home game in that area. He should have scored or squared it in the 1st half after a break in play and a strong run, hopefully more to come from him.

Smith done ok, didn't stand out but wasn't terrible either, if only we had a leader in the backline.

First time I had seen Kokolo and I was quite impressed with him, the fact that O'Hanlon got a real good going over when he came on showed that Kokolo was doing pretty well.

Nelson linked up ok with Saunders but was a bit quieter than expected, although we did look a danger most of the game which was nice to see.

All in all we have some decent players but we just don't know how to defend as a team and no real leaders on the pitch.

This is it really. I have only seen Kokolo out of the loanees, but from reports they all sound like decent players. Yet they're all young players learning their way in the game. Much like a lot of our other players. If only we had a Steve Foster type CB and a Ricky Ravenhill type CM, we'd probably be a decent side despite Wrights tactical shortcomings.

Would make a massive difference having a couple of experienced leaders in that team, which is what Gray had really hence how we could dig out some results when backs against the wall.

Ainge and Hughes were/are your men, if they were fit enough to play. Ainge at the back and Hughes into midfield apart from it won’t happen because Ainge still thinks he’s a striker and Hughes doesn’t look capable of getting into shape to play CM

Correct we got a half decent CB by signing a CM and got another half decent CB by signing a striker, homework well and truly done by Wright as neither can play in the positions they were signed for.
