Think he's a mate of Donno Oodafuch
Has Europa league experience, left footed, 6ft 3. Least it gives us bit of depth also means I expect Paul Downing will be out the door (if there is someone stupid enough to take him)

I think Under 21s don’t count - either towards squad size nor salary cap
Ah right. I didnt know they werent included in squad size.

Gills have 7 players U21 (possibly 8). So we are down to about 10 or 11 in the squad on that basis.

Sounds like we're close to taking 19 year old attacking midfielder Brennan Johnson on loan from Forest. Welsh international.

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 were due to sign him a month ago, the deal and wages were agreed then he apparently failed his medical.
Maybe it was a short term problem?

We're apparently looking to sign striker Jake Beesley from Solihull Moors. Scored 21 goals for Bradford a couple of years ago. Park Avenue, that is. The son of Paul Beesley, who I remember as a very solid and no nonsense defender for Sheffield United and Leeds.

Good luck to him

And now confirmed on a 3 year deal.

Steve Seddon signed on loan from Birmingham. Was awesome for us last time he was here - very happy with him signing but now gives us three left backs so the rumours of Nesta Guinness-Walker being sold may have some basis after all.

gutted as I know at the end of the last season he would have made the move back to us, but brummies wouldn't let him go at the time. Great technique, bit questionable defensively at times and faded after the 10-12 games. Still a cracking signing for you.

Were you in for him again this season or have you filled left-back? Should imagine you'd be a more attractive option for him although I know he did really enjoy his time with us.

We ended up getting Pring from Bristol City as we were told they wouldn't be letting him go

Brennan Johnson joins on a season long loan from Forest, number 10.

Wonder where Appleton see's him playing? Out wide in the front 3 or looking at Jones/McGrandles?

Signed 6ft4 CB Jerome Opoku on loan from Fulham, was on loan at Accrington Stanley last season, any fans on here recall how he was for them?

Have we ever had so many genuinely quick and pacey options at the top end of the pitch?

Probably not, pity Morton has done his shoulder though, expect Johnson to go into the squad for Sunday now.

Signed Dion Donohue on a 1 year deal. His ‘last chance saloon’ according to Wellens due to his misdemeanours at Mansfield.

Leon Clarke signs for Shrewsbury on a one year deal. Apparently Ricketts has been chasing him since becoming Shrewsbury manager

He must have something about him - we were sniffing around at him a week or two ago. Perhaps it was game time offered.

Very highly rated at Forest, can score goals and play in numerous areas which for us will be ideal. I also think with us having Grant, Bridcutt this and Walker last season, Forest trust us re our clubs relationships. Then being under an hour away from each other helps too.

The way Forest have started this season you'll be loaning them players in a couple of years

They had to 'buy' their own player off us last season. :lol:

Charlton signed Akin Famewo from Norwich. He was a part of our youth set up and we sold him to them after he had an ok loan at Grimsby a few years ago.

Got talent I think and has been given more time and attention than I think he might have as he is that semi rare commodity of being a left footed centre half which seem to becoming more in fashion these days with teams playing out a bit more.

Hope he does really well as we should have a decent stake in his next move.

Sounds like we might dip into the loan market again to replace Morton, who is seems has torn a shoulder/pec muscle and might need an operation. Second opinion tomorrow but probably at least two months out.

Will need to shift a couple of fringe players out, though. Risky move, we're a small squad as it is and one of the players who'd likely head out is currently a CM covering our RB position due to Lewis' injury.

4x Center Halves now. Aged 20,20,20 and 22. incredible.

And that's playing behind our only 2 fit CM's aged 19 and 20.

Really is an U21 squad we have :)

It’s understandable in this climate. We’ve also got a whole host of newly signed young players. I think Pitman is the only experienced one we’ve brought in. Whether they can withstand the rigours of an entire season remains to be seen.
