Another defender

So we resign Jordan Watson from blyth. We still need a goalkeeper and a quality striker from somewhere.

Probably need a midfielder or two if Hopson doesn’t sign

I’d imagine Armstrong is grafting like mad to get a striker and a goalie in but because of the financial madness at this level that we don’t involve ourselves in we are always gunna be further back in the queue for players.

It certainly won’t be for the want of trying. Plus the fact Ainge and Burn are on big money will also be hindering us massively.

Saying all that, I’m very happy with the players we have signed so far.

The echo this morning said we had offered a contract to Adam Armstrong, which would fill the striker slot. It doesn't exactly scream "we expect to get him", though, does it?

If he did sign, and we got a keeper on a season long loan, I'd say we're two midfielders away from having the bones of the squad in place.

Jordan Watson, another one from Gray's revolving door policy. He looked a good defender but barely got a chance.

We should have just taken the club over and moved it here, like you did.

It does look like that, if it’s successful which I’m hoping so no one will care, if it doesn’t god help us.

I wonder if Glover will join TW at Stratford, sounds like he's on his way.

Um... yeah. Soz.

Elliott sounds good. Taking a bit of shape now. Still need midfielders.
