So in summary… you lost your two best players. So the other two Halifax fans were right to be frustrated? No?Hmmm, so that's Johnson, Summerfield, Green, in fact everyone bar Williams (a squad player), Clarke (who wanted more money than we thought he was worth) and Earing (who moved into the Football League) and King (who took a step back for more money ). Weren't there a couple of clowns around here crying the last few weeks coz "we're losing orl are best playyuz!!, Wah! Wah! Wah!"
Is the clown talking rubbish again? Got him on ignore now. Yes, we lost our best two players to yourselves in King and Earing to Walsall.So in summary… you lost your two best players. So the other two Halifax fans were right to be frustrated? No?
Hi mate, please can you add some more brackets into that sentence? Thanks.Hmmm, so that's Johnson, Summerfield, Green, in fact everyone bar Williams (a squad player), Clarke (who wanted more money than we thought he was worth) and Earing (who moved into the Football League) and King (who took a step back for more money ).
Wouldn’t be shocked if we were interested in one or two of those. We won’t pay a fee though. Would have to be free or a long term loanWell JR has confirmed players will be leaving, even some that have ‘done well’ for him this last season…
I’m going to have a guess that over the next few weeks we will see the following depart:
- Alex Whittle (LB): Steady player who’s done okay since coming in, but since the signing of Miller, either him or Taylor have to go… and for me, Taylor is much the better player
- Tom Whelan (CAM): Strangely fell out of favour with Rowe towards the end of the season, as Mandeville and Clarke really stepped up and cemented their place in the XI. Whelan was class for us for the first few months of him signing, but think he will be one to leave also.
- Joe Rowley (CAM): Promised so much as a youngster, and JR seemed to really rate him. But his performances just aren’t consistent enough to ever hold down a starting spot and I personally don’t think he’s good enough for FT professional football.
- Kairo Mitchell (ST): A loan move to another side at this level would be perfect for him IMO, where he can go and be the main man. The potential in him is massive, but just too far down the pecking order here. Expect him to depart either permanently or on loan (hopefully the latter).
In terms of incomings I still expect us to bring in another keeper as back up, but not sure there will much more movement other than that from us now. Happy with the squad we’ve got!
King and Earing weren't our best players, cockwomble.Is the clown talking rubbish again? Got him on ignore now. Yes, we lost our best two players to yourselves in King and Earing to Walsall.
Good news on Summerfield and Green staying as them 2 and Hyde were probably our next best 3 players. So hopefully the Hyde rumours to Southend don’t come to fruition.
Just need Bradbury, Senior, Woods and Davison-Hale to sign now then we’ve got an ok start. Will need some quality signings like.
King winning your clubs player of the year award whilst also being your only player in the leagues TOTY tells me that the ‘inconvenient truth’ is that he was definitely your best player last season"Best player" is a subjective term. The inconvenient truth is they weren't our best players last season- Summerfield and Green were.
We also made a lot of money using the Hive as a vaccination centre for 6 months+.We're not a mess financially, have one of the richest owners in this division, he's just at times. He admitted after we were relegated he downed tools mentally and had sort of given up. He's got the appetite back now and saved a lot of money going cheap last season. We didn't take any loans out last season like a lot of clubs did. Quite a bit of money to play with.
Did you have a lot of loan players last year or just let a load go ? Would of thought you would keep the vast majority of the squad if possibleLittle and Andrews both signed new deals now so that gives us the following signed up:
A tad threadbare at the moment.
Our wonderful PM who has always taken the pandemic seriously officially opened the Hive as a vaccination centre in October.Thought that was Chesterfield?
