Wellens has been impressed with him in training, apparently. He sounds exactly like Woolery who has left for Tranmere.

He comes across as a really nice guy and a model professional, but from what we’ve seen of him I’d be a bit concerned if I was a Swindon fan looking at players of his ability for league 1, squad player might be a possibility but even that’d be a push IMO

Wellens has only really ever signed one dud - Adam May. I’m happy to go along with who he thinks is good enough.

Guessing his wage is just too high for us to be able to accommodate. Presume it will require a mutual termination of his contract for you to get him off your wage bill? When is he contracted until?
Next summer I believe. I bet Pitman and Payne were on a few bob though?

He wont go anywhere on his wages and I doubt we would pay him off or we would have done it by now. Best thing would be to find a loan club who can contribute something to his wages for this season.

I can only echo what the Argyle fans have said. We had him for 2 seasons and he missed a lot of games with niggly injuries. He often flattered to deceive, with the occasional superb game.

He had an amazing final 10 games when his contract was running out, so he’s one of your typical inconsistent lower league players.

We’ve signed 32 year old Centre Back Jon Grounds. Sounds like the experienced defender we are currently screaming out for.

Grounds has mixed reviews to say the least but sounds like he hasn't had the legs to play left back for a while. Luckily he'll be used as a centre half for us.

We've bought Sowerby from Fleetwood. Had linked up with Curle previously at Carlisle and been after him for a while, but waiting for the price to be right.

We’ve signed Joel Grant on a 1 year deal. Handy enough squad player I guess.

We'll have to see with him I guess. Not great reviews but another wide forward option.

We’ve signed Shilow Tracey (right winger) on loan from Spurs for the season.

Never heard of him but played seven games for Macclesfield last season.

We have 33 year old winger/striker Joel Grant on trial at the moment. Any info Plymouth/Exeter fans?
Agree with my green colleagues. Engaged well with fans. Had a purple patch early on last year, but never really replicated it the rest of the season. Some fans got on his back for being lazy, but I think that was unfair. Had some speed just not enough goal scoring success other than the purple patch. I felt he was, at best, a squad player two years ago, can’t see how he would have improved at this level since. Sound league two player, less convinced at league one.

I’d forgotten about the niggling injuries for us.

Yep, despite my earlier post, I think he’s an ok squad player. There will be plenty of rotation I’d imagine this season so he could come in handy.

Dominic Samuel signs from blackburn, was excellent for us a few years ago whilst on loan, very good signing for this level in my opinion

We've just signed Luke McCormack from Chelsea ( Midfielder) on a season long loan. I believe that is 26 in the first team squad now. Not counting Ogogo & Kyle Bennett.

Could be great business.

Jordan Stevens has completed his loan move from Leeds.

Pacey winger.

26? Aren't you limited to 22 actually nominated in the first team squad under the current rules?

I think us Gills now have possibly 19 or 20. But O'Keefe is out for the season. Dempsey out for 6 weeks.
We only had 6 on the bench last week.
