Along with Ben Reeves arriving earlier we’ve re-signed Max Ehmer
Allsop in 17/18 came in when he lost faith in Farman and Vickers was injured, Wharton was a during his first spell in 17/18 but like you said wasn't the following season.Our lot got restless as well but Cowley rarely does early signings, it'll all come together at last minute. He won't compromise on what he wants and would rather use an existing player than bring someone in for the sake of it and off the back of that, he rarely made bad signings here (the one he did, he binned off after a month and sent him back to his parent club).
I can't vouch for his Huddersfield time but I certainly wouldn't pin too many hopes on his loan signings becoming key players because he generally viewed them as squad fillers here, bar Tyler Walker and Joe Morrell who were starters. We had a decent CB in Scott Wharton who was unlucky with the strength we had in that area, which meant he didn't play as much as he deserved but unless the likes of gijsbert_bos, Davidimp, Guernica etc can think of anyone else, they're the only three that spring to mind as being really good loan signings.
More than happy to have him back to be honest, sometimes a move just doesn’t work out I guess. The way it played out in public between him and Barton was a bit ugly though.
It'll be interesting to see if he can find his previous form at Gills.Yes I agree Barton shouldn't have made it public, although Ehmer was useless under all three managers before suddenly having a shoulder injury when Barton came in. Strangely he actually looked decent going forward but pretty much every game he got turned inside out, and for a captain (voted in by the players?) showed absolutely no fight or urgency.
It’s an interesting one isn’t it, you guys sure didn’t like him but most of our fans were disappointed when he left.It'll be interesting to see if he can find his previous form at Gills.
He was absolutely woeful, one of the worst defenders I have ever seen. And I don't say that lightly.
Slow, can't jump, can't head, can't turn, can't pass - honestly he was just woeful. No doubt he'd have been on a fair wack as well.
Good move all round.
Well ironically we had him next to Kilgour, our young CB who’s being scouted by Bournemouth etc.It’s an interesting one isn’t it, you guys sure didn’t like him but most of our fans were disappointed when he left.
Im not sure maybe it’s because we played him alongside a youngster (Tucker) who is tipped to go on to much better things, and that he needed a more experienced head next to him. (And conversely Tucker could do the running for Ehmer).
I don’t know, maybe their partnership here just worked.
Most clubs at this level will have the odd player on £3-4K a week so £5.5k for a club of the size of Pompey or Charlton would not seem unreasonable.
I would imagine Ipswich will pay more this season.
3 starting players maybe, but I’d like 2 more and for Ollie Tomlinson to go out on loan.We've signed Macaulay Gillesphey from Brisbane Roar in Australia on a 2 year contract so that's our defence sorted.
Looks like we are signing Joel Dixon today after all as Gilks number 2. Surprised he’s given up first team football to be back up for a season unless he’s been promised progression into the team.
Yeah you are probably right. He won’t have been on a lot at Barrow in their first season after promotion to be fair but they did offer him a new deal… no idea what their budget is this season though.Could be a nice pay rise helping soften the blow as our left back Josh Ruffels did the same thing.
DD how does that work in terms of getting a Visa? I thought the conditions are stringent. Not having a pop, just interested, especially as presumably the same rules apply to all EU players now.A week after Eastbourne Borough posted it, we've finally announced the signing of Argentine goalkeeper Franco Ravizzoli.
He has decent pedigree coming from River Plate's academy and trained with us after Laurie Walker went out on loan so will know the team already. Seems like a decent third choice option to me.
Most injury prone player we've ever had and we've had a few. I'd actually be surprised if he avoids early retirement based on the injuries he's suffered here. Obviously hope that's not the case and he gets a bit of luck.Lewis moult signs for us.
Interested to hear opinions from Preston fans if he is any good.
