  1. I am looking forward to seeing how Notts lines up, however, I think pushing Nemane into a wing back position would be less effective than allowing him to play further up. It does seem to be what IB is thinking of doing though.
  2. There's better options out there, missing out on Andy Dallas compared to Scott Quigley is disappointing. Dallas is at the age where he could improve further, but extending his stay at Cambridge makes sense. Perhaps the exception to my loan beliefs? Quigley is at the wrong end to be building what appears to be an energetic squad.
  3. Inserting pace with Notts could be difficult for opposition teams to play against, I think if Lewis Knight could work on his delivery/crossing he could adapt to covering out wide.
  4. No need to lurk @steve61, just take part as and when you can. PON is a very good place to discuss the club.
  5. This would be a very good way to send off such a great servant of Notts County, putting to rest the sicknote after Curly Wurly pushed him out of the club.
  6. How many teams appear to be signing players without purpose? One thing IB is doing is signing players who fits his style, he knows who can do what and how to get the best out of them. Some teams seem to be throwing anyone in and that's not the best way to build a squad.
  7. If Matt Palmer had joined us in League Two, I would still feel like it was a fantastic signing as he seems more than able to cut it above this level. Hopefully, he won't struggle with the physical side of the National League, as you can be kicked about but football is football at the end of things.
  8. Usually clubs stay clear of injured players, so I can't imagine what he's carrying is anything more than a knock or the back end of something. Once training starts for him, he'll be fine. He looks a class player at this level, right age too.
  9. It will be interesting to see how a left back adapts to playing as a defensive midfielder, working alongside Michael Doyle will be useful to the lad but I can see Frank Vincent starting ahead of him.
  10. I will buy the home shirt, but it will most likely sit in my wardrobe until I warm more to it.
  11. There is that option, only issue is if there's little budget remaining you end up getting cast offs or unwanted youth players clubs want you to field. I am not saying it's a bad thing. I just feel the loan market can be a real tricky area to delve into with limited resources.
  12. I didn't catch anything about Damien McCrory but if he's ruled him out, I don't see the point in trialling him. Other players could do with those game minutes.
  13. Damien McCrory is on trial with the club, I can see him being brought back into the squad. Lamine Kaba-Sherif and Kyle Bennett seem almost certain deals as IB has mentioned that he's watching them in friendly games, he also alluded to one of them being a dead certain signing as he said they fit our style of play well and that they've discussed basic terms.
  14. It's always a positive thing when a newly signed player gives credible reasons for having signed. Yes, promotion can be a cliché thing to state but the talk of Ian Burchnall getting the most out of him, looking beyond the two seasons he has initially signed on for. Well it's only a good thing in my eyes.
  15. Fans are speculating that Andy Dallas is the player behind Joel Taylor when he's having his medical, either way, I would take both but won't be disappointed if none are on our radar. I have faith that the club will access the right players.
