it will go like this;-
You will take up the option on his contract - to try to get a decent fee for him
early in June/July you will turn down an offer from Bradford hoping to get an improved offer.
Bradford will then sign someone else.
Early/Mid August you will let him sign on loan for Barrow* for the season and you will end up paying most of him wages....

*might not be Barrow - but the same scenario with any club

Doubt it, we’ve loaned out Andy Cook twice now and I’m not sure about the Bradford move but for Tranmere we got a significant fee on top of his wages. Trying to recoup that £150,000 lol.

We need some PROPER signings this summer, get some real quality upfront and in the midfield instead of playing those fucking useless pub team players like Melish and Toure.

Melish has 14 goals from midfield this year, he can't be that bad surely

I would love it if we had a midfielder who could score 14 goals in a season, it is years since we had a player capable of getting anywhere near that total...Yan Klukowski is probably the last one, who scored roughly one goal every three games, but was years ago.

Yan Klukowski - the Frank Lampard of the Conference.

Tbf there aren’t many strikers that get more then 14 at this level most seasons, let alone midfielders. Think Reece Brown got double figures but no other midfielder has since we’ve been in the league, and the only strikers that have are Doidge and Matt.

Carver is being very harsh on Mellish imo, has always looked decent when I’ve seen him.

One of my favourite Rovers players of all time, if I were naming a dream eleven he would probably be in it, despite having played for us when we were distinctly average in the Conference. I believe he is on the coaching staff, possibly working with one of the youth teams...we could do far worse than put him in charge of training our midfielders.

EFL Hub states the Coventry are looking to sign our midfielder Jack Powell.

He has played a lot of games this season and has a good range of passing and is good at set pieces . Out of contract so no fee involved if true.

Lucky we have Josh Wright to replace him. :err::ffs:

Apparently Oxford and Wimbledon are after Nicky Cadden and Bristol Rovers want Aaron Collins.

That Hub site is the pits. We’ve been linked with Gary Hooper, Conor Macaleney and some defender from St Johnstone.

We haven’t even got a manager!

We were linked by EFL Hub to Frank Nouble and someone else who I can’t remember, when we don’t have a manager or know what league we’ll be in.

Jobi McAnuff has announced his retirement from playing the game.

What a player he was for us in his second spell from 2017-2021. We was always a better team when he played.

Finished off this season with 3 stunning goals against Bolton, Southend and Plymouth.

Best of Luck to him in whatever he does next.

When we played you at Brisbane Road he looked by a mile the best player on the pitch for either team even at that age. Be a tough one to replace that.

We've apparently got L1 teams knocking our door down with offers for Joel Dixon (who would be on a free), Scott Quigley and Patrick Brough;- so once we know whether Rob Kelly is staying we'll be trying to strengthen and fend off people trying to get our best players too.... pretty standard closed season then.

Think Dixon is a goer.....Think we have a good chance of landing John so dont think we will be after Brough
And the are better forwards than Quigley out of contract........so we wont be paying a fee for him

Dixon might depend who else is interested - IF Sunderland is one team that might complicate things as he played for them when he was younger. Brough and Quigley you can't try to sign anyway for another year[- and Evatt will have moved to Derby by then.

Apparently Scott Twine is off to pastures new. 200k compo straight into Lee Power's sweaty back pocket.

Love this time of year... after being linked with the likes of Balotelli and Fowler in years previous!

First one is we are after Paul Mullin as he wants to move back closer to Liverpool apparently. haha!

Quigley getting L1 offers. I might win the Ballon D'or after all.

Every single club north of Watford Gap will get mentioned by those rumours pages on Twitter. Personally I would be very wary as he has only really been prolific for one season of his career.

If I was him I’d look to stay at Cambridge, he’s on to a good thing there so why alter that for a few extra quid when another season scoring could get some serious money down the line.

i remember the fowler one ha ha, was there seriously a balotelli rumour? surely not

i love a good rumour too, happy to just kid myself that there's something in them for a few weeks to pass the time over summer.

however dreadful it was, the bruno ribeiro summer was one of most exciting for me, googling these random shit munchers and trying to pretend that a portuguese non league highlight on youtube would translate to league 1 football!

watching trialists at newcastle town and wondering how they won't score 40 league goals next season :lol:

Still not convinced by the Brentwood Beckenbaur?

We played him as a no 10 and he looked OK but truth be told; no I'm not.

If he were a couple of years older I would say his legs have gone. It doesn't help that he is playing, mainly, with other one paced players so our whole midfield looks slow.

As we have him under contract for another 2 seasons we are stuck with him...unless you want him back?

Yeah think it the Bruno season! Mourinho being mates told him he should go somewhere like Port Vale to grow up basically and the papers got wind of it and he was signing.

15 goals in a very poor side if nothing to be sniffed at IMO. Having someone who scored on a regular basis was the difference between ourselves and the two relegated sides.
