First Rumours Already!

Recommended Posts

I don’t pay much attention to rumours on twitter but this guy has been right about lots of transfers before including our signings of Dennis, Hemmings and Enzio last season. He’s posted some news about Notts.

Potential incoming?

I don’t know anything about Bennett, as for Oliver well his hold play was 6/10, his goal threat 1/10. I guess this is the only kind of calibre we’ll be able to attract now though…

Potential outgoing?

I’d hazard a guess Enzio will be on a good wage and if we can recoup some of the money we spent on him last season I’m sure the club would be willing to do a deal…

I tend to read ExAgent's Twitter as he did get quite a bit right last season.

Would definitely take Bennett. Can still do a job in League 2 nevermind non league. Scored a decent amount for Barrow a few years ago

We arn't going to attract the players we did last season, but we need to take signings more seriously if we are going to go back up into the league.

I remember very little about Oliver. Bennett's goalscoring record looks OK - 9 goals on 17 appearances last season, that's better than 1 in 2. His entry for Carlisle on Wikipedia is fantastic:

Quote

Bennett signed for Cumbrian side Carlisle United on 25 July 2017 for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract (with the option of a further year).[3] Through his period at the blues he was deployed in collecting the cones and bibs after training. During several key moments he missed the locker containing the cones and ended up in the cleaning cupboard. After an uninspiring start he was moved to tea making.

We're not going to be signing players with amazing records on paper, we need to identify players who have the potential to do well here. Need good scouting for that.

Allow Enzio Boldewijn to go, sell him to the highest bidder.

I want every player to be responsible for defending, if Jon Stead and Craig Mackail-Smith can do it and he can't? That is all I need to set my mind on this. I would hope Neal Ardley sees this too.

It's a waiting game, it would be hard to see why many teams would be flooding to sign Enzio unless they feel he can be had on the cheap.

Yep, he's been a massive disappointment. Can go on a free for me, he's probably earning a packet.

Notts should re-coup some of his fee if they can, regardless of his salary. One of the clubs failings in recent years is their inability to market players.

Link who you like unless the Manager has been given the nod that he’s staying any rumours must be taken as such and disregarded. 

I feel the same way, especially now those accounts know any Tom, Dick or Harry will pick them up and attempt to pass it on as their own 'inside knowledge'. It's quite damaging IMO, as it leads to distractions and fans being annoyed. We shouldn't sign anyone until the squads been reduced, I think there's still time for the majority of contracts to actually expire. Plus it doesn't mean they won't be offered. 😕

Vadaine Oliver was at York when they got relegated to the NL South. I'm not superstitious but why tempt faith? Plus he's not very good. 

Here is the type of player we should be going after IMO. He's proven at Conference level. Sell EB and replace him with BT. 

https://us.soccerway.com/players/blair-turgott/160421/

He wouldn't be my first choice either, but at York he got 7 goals and 3 assists in 18 appearances. That would equate to nearly 20 goals over a full season - not shabby at all, especially in a struggling team. He's never scored many in League Two, but that's not an issue for us right now anyway :(

Get rid of the players the never or rarely play, its a waste of wages and their careers.
