Excellent, a good CB and CM also required is out and goal scorer and we are good to go

We’re going to need 9/10 players.

Armstrong doesn’t really do loanees. He prefers to bulk his squad out with younger lads released from the bigger clubs

The club have stated this season loness are the way we are going so he will have to adhere to the club's wishes if he wants the job

Not too sure Jameson will be a good acquisition to the team if he hasn't improved.
I personally thought he made too many mistakes too often.

To be fair, some of the young lads from the bigger clubs will cost the same as some loan deals these days.

What if he has improved?

Not convinced he has stood still for the last 2 years, he had a bad run but isn't a bad keeper.

I wouldn't be certain we will get him back anyhow.

I guess it depends if he said he can do it with perms but on the same budget. I agree with Divas that Armstrong will prefer his own players but may have to have a few loans but won't want half a team of loans.

Jameson was at the very best an ok keeper, nothing more. In the times I’ve seen him since he hasn’t changed my opinion. Good shot stopper yes, but his command of his area and starting position were always his problem. Unless he’s improved a huge amount, I wouldn’t want him back.

Just hope the Echo hasn’t jumped the gun to soon, I am now getting a bit nervous about the lack of confirmation from the club, the cats out the bag so to speak, be a massive downer if it’s untrue

Spenny have probably swept in with an extra 20 grand to be their third choice kitman.

I’d be very surprised if the loan market wasn’t part of the criteria for getting the job given the noises coming out of the club last season.

I would guess it's just gone into the public arena before us and blyth wanted it to. It was probably agreed when an official statement would go out and both clubs are sticking to it despite it being revealed in the media. Given the delicate situation at blyth i'm sure they particularly wanted to try to manage things as best they could with the fans already on the warpath.

Good point, very worrying that there has been no formal announcement on the club web-site or some other independent verification.

How did you find out that or are you guessing like Craig Stoddart.

My source says Neil Aspin :(

Your source would be wrong then

There could be some signings as well.

How can we be trying to sign players when we don’t have a Manager. Surely it’s just rumours and not facts.

But we do have a manager - as you know. It just hasn't been announced yet.
