The Team 20/21 season

Post by poppyfield » Mon Jun 01, 2020 11:57 am

So with a fantastic effort with Boost the budget AA has some cash to spend. where do we see the money going, at the moment the squad looks like this;

GK. ?
Defenders, Hedley Storey Laing Liddle Watson.
Midfield, Hatfield Wheatley,
Wide, Donawa Rivers.
Forward, Campbell,
Utility, Holmes Atkinson Reid. ( i have used the word utility because i am not sure what their best position is)

Obviously we need a goal keeper, loaned or signed ? i think most agree we need another striker, and central defender.
I haven't put Galbraith and Holness in as they are not committed yet.
Help get the club back to Darlo by helping to spread the word about the "Back to Darlo!" fund. The image on the right will be constantly updated with the latest total so please feel free to use the image link below the thermometer on your own signatures, blogs, websites, etc.Image

Would put Holmes as a wide forward. My guess is Atkinson will play more in midfield than defence, and Hedley would in the first instance be used as a RB, particularly if Armstrong doesn’t bring in a specialist for that position.

There’s an account called Non League Guy which has linked us with Sol Brynn (Middlesbrough goalkeeper) and Adam Wrightson. No idea how credible those rumours are, but who doesn’t enjoy a bit of speculation? They do seem Armstrong-type signings but like I say, I don’t know if it’s true or not.

AA said he wanted a squad of around 18 players, supplemented by some youth players. If Galbraith and Holness depart, that leaves us with 13. I could see a GK, CB, wide forward, CF and possibly a specialist full back.

Sol Brynn is 19 and U23 keeper at Boro. A long term loan of a keeper, like Aynsley Pears, seems like a sensible move for a club like ours. It benefits both clubs and would save some money on the playing budget.
Adam Wrightson is a current Blyth player.
BTW, what sort of forward is Maguire?

Adam Wrightson has always impressed me, very quick and tricky with an eye for goal.A bit on the small side and similar to what we have in Rivers and Holmes so a bit surprised if we are in for him but a very exciting player and the type the Darlo fans would take to.If Wrightson does come in would we still go for Maguire especially as AA wants a more physical presence up front.

Maguire is a hustle & bustle type of centre-forward, with a very good eye for goal (as his record proves). Don’t get me wrong, he isn’t a 6ft+ target man, but he’s certainly equally as good running off defenders or with his back to goal.

Wrightson isn’t good enough for where we want to be imo. Can’t see that one happening as I’m sure he was out of contract last season and he didn’t end up here which would have been a safer bet

AA said in his Netcafe that he was after bringing in 2 CFs I believe. So add a GK(Loan/ see if rumours about Jameson are true) Centre Half(Kerr/Tait) The 2 forwards (Maguire and target man style type) then probably add Jack lambert too, that’s a naughty little squad we have there

I think Lambert is pretty much nailed on so then we need GK, CB, CF , I’d take any of the below

GK - Jameson , Whitley , Hemmings

CB - Kerr , Tait , Devitt

CF - Maguire , Langstaff , O’Neill

Possibly I would add Gould and Boyes to that list. Ryan Whitley is contracted until May 2021.
Also disappointed to learn that Adam Wrightson is not Jeff's son.

I just can’t see both keepers staying at York - if Jameson stays they might send Whitley out on loan again ?

Always caused us problems when he played against us, similar type of player to Thommo but if we are serious about Maguire then cannot see this happening.
I will certainly back AA’s judgement on this one.

Wrightson is a tricky little player but wouldn’t be for me. A bit like Rivers though from what I have seen but not as good. He can certainly beat a full back but rarely seems to produce an end product. I think in Rivers Holmes and Donawa we have some good options for wide attackers not to mention using Campbell out wide.

I don't think they will either. Someone on another thread said that York are looking to cut costs and even though both keepers are under contract Whitley is seen as a better prospect so they may be open to offers for Jameson.

Wrightson is nothing like Thompson in my opinion. One is all about pace with not a massive amount of end product (Wrightson) and the other who's game was a lot about strength with some pace and also real quality on the ball (Thompson).

Wrightson is a squad player not a starter and wouldn't improve us, I very much doubt we will look to sign him.

Totally irrelevant anyway, if we are serious about Maguire then AA will look to bring in a more physical player.

If York are clearing players out I wouldn’t mind us taking Kempster

Griffiths would be quality at RB

You’d think if he left York he’d go back to Spenny
