  1. @heraldmagpie The loan market can be useful, but only if you get the players you want and that fit your plans. Not the youngsters or playing about to come out of the exit door, therefore you become the undesirable club for that transitional period.
  2. I wonder if Leigh Curtis will be combing through footage of the players training?
  3. I am undecided about what purchases I make, I got last seasons shirt sitting unworn mostly. I might just wear that, unless something tempts me between now and the start of the season. I don't usually buy the sports wear but a new jacket for the warm weather might be nice.
  4. Its not the worst signing they could've made, Shaun Brisley fits the bill for most teams in this league and he should be able to cope with dropping down. Is it a signing I would expect of them? No, but they have to sign what they can.
  5. There's usually no smoke without fire, but players like Tshimanga is more fan desire. I don't think Leigh Curtis would just make up pointless rumours, the club might have been or are still tracking Dallas and Sterry. They might not be in the current plans but the future? Who knows how things will work out. I would sign Dallas, I think he looks like a strong player in the making that is a realistic purchase. Tshimanga will be going to a League One team, he's better than this level. Its all about the price tag, but he should go for a hefty sum which is well beyond what we could afford.
  6. Yes, a lot more thought seems to be going into the signings and not just where they're from. To be fair, under the Reedtz brothers the recruitment has been a lot better and we have to remember that Neal Ardley would have the final say. Ian Burchnall seems to have different ideas about how we should be playing and what players are best to achieve that.
  7. I thought he would retire after last season, no doubt he loves the game but his body is broken.
  8. Good player, strong on the ball and likes to turn the opposition players marking him inside out. He should prove to be a very good signing for Notts! I would've thought Chesterfield wouldn't allow him to leave, especially to us.
  9. I sometimes get a pasty at away games, otherwise I wait until I get back to Leeds before I eat. A good breakfast at home always helps start the day!
  10. One point that I would like to make, there will be lots of free agents and it must be a demanding job to deal with processing this. Even if Notts has a short list, there's still the hassle of dealing with those greedy devils called agents. Plus Notts has put money into signing players from clubs, so they might be waiting to see what develops in the transfer market.
  11. A year deal gives us time to see if he can force his way more into the side, if he plays on the right or left back place he will do a job. I have no objections to seeing him play in midfield or on the wing where he's more natural.
  12. Now to add depth, but its great to have DKE all signed up for another season.
  13. Motherwell fans deserve all the praise, touch of class, this!
  14. Rose got lucky with the sentencing, no matter what happened you wouldn't expect this to happen.
  15. I don't get why some fans don't rate Jim, when he joined he was the better out of him and Doyle IMO. If we don't just force him onto the wing, he will be the right man to influence the middle and give more. He doesn't have the pace to be a winger, but has done well at times filling in on the left. It's a no brainer to have him assume control of the middle now Doyle is coaching more.
  16. Sign on the dotted line, Dion! You know it makes sense to give your future to this club.
  17. Since we play them quite early on, we might not have to worry about what will happen if he pulls them together. It will take time to build them into a force to be reckoned with.
  18. This, there are loads of fake transfer tips and agent accounts. Why would they take to Twitter to release that x player is joining someone?
  19. He might do better for them being a smaller club, less pressure and expectations. Good luck Enzio.
  20. 1st game: Chesterfield - H Final game: Stockport -A
  21. These types of players are pathetic, just simulating injuries.
  22. Spain to beat Italy gets my tip, close game but I can see it ending 2-1.
  23. I think it's a sensible signing, hopefully, he will work closely with Michael Doyle who can mentor him. Signing a defensive minded CM is part of the missing jigsaw. Just need a bit of creativity in there too.
  24. I have a feeling Jim will be leaving to sign for a League Two team, I know some are speculating that he will join Neal Ardley's Solihull Moors but I think he will be the type of player most mid to relegation tier L2 clubs would want.
