Alex Lacey signs


Recommended Posts

Previous league experience. Was unlucky at Gills with injuries. Sounds like Gills fans liked him. 

Understandable to add a centre-back to the ranks as we need cover there heading into the part of the season, where the fixtures are stacking up again cos of the cup competitions and and where the pitches become bobbly meaning injuries can become more frequent.

People will moan that Bird isn’t the first choice replacement at centre back but in my view we are definitely pushing for promotion and Ardley doesn’t want lo leave anything to chance if Rawlinson or Turner get injured. Bird will get his chance I’m sure but getting back into the league must be the priority. This new lad will only be good for the club as a whole, I just hope the budget can stand it !

If the lad is better than Bird, then I have no complaints about his signing and we probably do need another centre half in all honesty. 

I'm struggling to see now where we can really improve massively on this squad (for this level), especially when JOB returns. I think it is now just a case of keeping everyone fit and finding the right midfield balance.

think its fair to say that bird has done well when given a chance.

i dont mind who plays or who signs provided that the clubs interest is in mind and its progressing, if the signing caused issues then i might view it differently. we need to be better, hopefully this signings does that.

This sounds a really impressive signing, the type of player I'd expect to see in the first eleven. Prior to Gillingham he was at Yeovil (winning player of the year there) and was part of Luton's promotion-winning team. He was a free agent because he was lined up for a contract at Bury, then obviously end up empty-handed. He's 26, a good age for a footballer. And, given that he was a free agent in November, he probably isn't exactly breaking the budget either. All positives from me.

It leaves us with four centre-halves and two left-backs. Nice and balanced. Now we just need to get the best out of them.
