Going to be hard to replace, if it happens

Picking up a keeper, imo, won’t be that hard. You’ve got to hope that radar has this covered and a gem could be found if needed. 
There are also a few good keepers in the league already, but I don’t expect the club will be paying a fee for players this summer.

I’m on the fence about Slocombe. Won’t be upset if he leaves and same if he stays. For this level, good keeper. Could we do better? Probably, but we’re not playing footy manager.

I would be sad if he goes and hope it's just gossip. He's not perfect (who at this level is?) but he's solid and reliable. We've already got a fair bit of work to do bringing in wide men and bolstering the defence, so the fewer changes we have to make to the spine of the team the better.

If anyone is disappointed, then I would suggest that it's Notts who needs to ensure contracts are offered to players who can move us forward. Sam Slocombe shouldn't be playing at this level in his career just yet, he's a decent worker and it's a shame he's gone. I can't fault him for making the move though.

Ideally, Christian Walton would be a far better target but I doubt he wouldn't attract interest from League One clubs.

Do you know something we don’t, or do you just think it’s a no-brainer move cos it’s a league club?

I really hope he stays too, solid shot-stopping and I think he commands his area well too. Signing someone to compete with him has been hard enough, I don’t really want to be looking 2 new keepers…

Let's just say my eyes, sees what it believes and then my head agrees. After that, it takes time to sink in that I've mistaken the information sometimes. 😒

I do think he will leave though, I see no reason for him to remain here at the moment.

PS. I'm checking things a million times now before I comment. 😆🎭

i think there is going to be a real shake up, with jake reeves leaving i can easily see sam slocombe returning to the football league. why would he remain here? if he does extend his stay, i think it would be a signal that he believes we will strengthen enough to push for promotion properly but at this stage in time i think it looks unlikely.

It would be a concern if we lost Sam Slocombe, with Jake Reeves departing it looks like a total rebuild in those crucial areas.

Yes. Losing Reeves is neither here nor there, as long as it's isolated. If Slocombe has his head turned, JOB doesn't fancy it, we will have a big overhaul on our hands.

I’d be surprised if Slocombe stays tbh. I’m of the view that what’ll be will be. I’m sure with us releasing the backup keepers, we have a good list of replacements.

Reeves moving on was a shock, but I think it will help long term as IB can seriously put the stamp on his team now.

New keeper.

His recent interview regards wanting to keep the back 3 means for me it’s vital we secure Miller. Chicksen will play with Lacey as 2 of the 3 cbs. Need another ball playing cb as well as Rawlinson is lost in a back 3, unless the move to the centre spot is available to him. Lacey on right side? Chicksen on the left side? Brindley as rwb and Miller hopefully as lwb.

Two new midfielders, strong, pacey  and tall preferably!

Ruben and Cal behind Woots.


Subs 

Knight, Job, DKE, Brooks, and another cb/midfielder.
