Another Midfielder

Post by Quakerlad » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:21 pm

Just read that we are on verge of signing another midfielder! Surely not. We must have about 5 central and 4 wide players yet no centre forward and no experienced centre half which we are absolutely crying out for.
Surely another midfielder is the last thing we need. Who is he going to drop....Hatfield, Wheatley, Holness?
Like I said, surely not!

Must admit to being a bit baffled by this but have every faith in AA so let's just see who he is first.

Quite a few left wingers became unexpectedly available after Thursday, but I don't think any of them are a good fit for DFC.

Lambert was only signed on a months loan which is up after the weekend, don't know if he's staying or going back, that's the only reason I can think of.

Morpeth midfielder Sean Reid in bound.

That would be a great signing and a player who scores loads of goals from midfield.

Good player, gets forward and has goals in him.Just wonder if AA has any plans to release one or two as we are overloaded in midfield at the minute.

If it is Reid (and I always treat messageboard rumours from other club’s fans with healthy scepticism) I’m almost certain he’s played as a striker before.

His main position is midfield of course, but I’m sure he has played as a striker.

Played for AA at Blyth so he'll know plenty of the lads already.

AA tried to sign him in the summer, he would be a very good signing!

Lambert will be off, but it seems odd to be taking another one on as well... i wonder what Atkinson's status is?

To me, Holness, Wheatley and Hatfield is very solid, Bascome offers something a bit different... ok Reid could be a good option too, but it seems an odd expense especially with Atkinson not playing.

Could be the best signing AA has made so far. Fantastic goalscoring record from midfield like a non league Frank Lampard. We are very well off for midfielders but if better become available then you’ve got to bring them in and move one out, that’s football and that’s how you improve the team.

I don't believe Shed7 has come on to make up a rumour.

Time will tell.

I wonder if Bascombe will go, we have been depleted recently and he still hasn't been getting a game

Reid didn't feature for Morpeth today and has been on the bench recently.

Flash scores had him as scoring their first goal.

Not for the first time seems they made a mistake. Morpeth Twitter says Chris Read scored first goal today and I assume they would know.
