Apparently we are rushing around today to find an emergency loan keeper as number 2 as Dino Visser is now out for a period of time due to the full contact Rugby match played in training yesterday.

Nicky Adams was at Crawley and used to win every man of the match award. It got to be a joke. He'd come on for 1 minute at the end of a match and he would be awarded the mom.

He was signed by Sean O'Driscol in our first season in league 1 but SOD sodded off to Nottingham Forest after a month. Adams left Crawley to move back north after two (?) seasons with us.

I've never been as enamoured about him as most people. His assist rate is very good but if you take all the free kicks that are crossed into the box then your assist rate will be high. Add in the corners...! But he is a good player and will do well for Oldham.

Beech says there will be a player leaving Carlisle possibly this week.

Have a feeling it might be Toure. With Walker coming in we will be over crowded in that area. Toure has been struggling living alone during lockdown, he went to France over christmas, perhaps he wants to go there permanently. It would be a shame as he’s a talented player.

We have Giles Coke on trial, Hurst isn’t sure if we’re signing him yet.

Still no striker on the horizon.

Either that or another loan for one of the young players... Lewis Bell or someone like that (probably not Charters).

We are apparently signing Nya Kirby on loan from Palace. Was on loan at Blackpool last season.

Don't know much about his performances in League One earlier on but I'm sure he expected to kick on more in the prime of his career.

He was an absolute magician for us on loan for a month from Leicester in 2010. Only played 6 games during Jan/Feb but completely turned a doomed side around. Don’t think he’s done that well in League One since.

Had no idea Coke was still playing. Thought he would have retired by now. He's been around forever.

We've signed Bobby Thomas on loan from Burnley, meaning we've added two centre backs to the six or seven we already have - yet people are convinced we're ditching a back five in favour of going four at the back.

Huge squad now, so need to somehow offload half a dozen players, which isn't easy with non-league mostly on hold.

You're only allowed 22 max.

This full contact Rugby match appears to be lethal. Participants are dropping like flies!

Well that's the problem - we're well over the limit now, and if there's no one willing or able to take our rejects then we'll have half a dozen players picking up a wage but unable to play.

You have only 1.5m to play with

We've signed Jökull Andrésson for a week, Halstead must be injured and Turner has been binned off. Presume the loan will get increased at some point, I seem to remember Exeter waxing lyrical about him earlier in the season?

And we'll be under that.
Evatt may have fancied one or two who you are after discarding, but seeing as we are not allowed to sign any Barrow players for two years we wont be getting any of your dross

Very good ‘keeper you have there, wish we’d have been able to keep him. Looks like he will play against us on Tuesday!

We’ve sold young defender and first team regular Harry Darling to MK Dons for an undisclosed fee. Not disastrous and the club clearly feel it’s a decent deal but we are now short of cover at centre back.

I like Darling, very good player, only going to get better, we'd have got a lot more for him if we could have held him for another 18 months, but if we were going to lose a first teamer this window, centre back is the one where we have the best ready-made replacement, and Cundy when he's played has been as good as Darling. Get someone in to fill the spot on the bench and it shouldn't affect us.

Should have made him captain. Then you'd have had Captain Darling.

A huge opportunity missed. And now you've sold him.

Darling is overrated in my opinion so no major loss as I rated Cundy over him. We just need to go into the market and sign cover at center back.

great move for him but he could be back in league two next season as we wave at him heading to league one.

If we are discarding them I'm sure we can sort an agreement where you can quite happily have them.

Dont mind taking Barrow lads born in the town like Thomason.....Even take ex players like Rooney this summer,but i cannot think of one barrow player that would improve us
