Danny Johnson signs for Mansfield on a 2 year deal. A shame for us to lose him, can imagine Mansfield would’ve made him a very, very good offer - closer for him to the North East as well.
Hard worker, clever and a very deadly finisher on his left foot.
He tailed off in the second half of last season after his 5 week long injury, came back into the team lacking some fitness and as Ross Embleton was trying to organise us better so we didn’t concede as much, which resulted in us being boring for a month leading to his sacking.
We was similar under Jobi McAnuff and Johnson was clearly getting frustrated playing in a team that wasn't creating chances.
If Clough can play to his strengths he may well fire Mansfield into a promotion push.
Being London based won’t make a big difference for Monthe I wouldn’t have thought, he hasn’t played for a London based club in years. Seems to be the have boots will travel type. Think he played for Southport in the past as well?
Is it already time for the hilarious vale optimism? I swear every season you've got the best team in the leagueLooks a plan with the height of the new lads signed so far! So as it stands:
Looks the strongest XI so far with probably another 8-10 to join.
He's signed up on a 2 year deal as player coach and he'll be mainly coaching I think - and only play when we have injuries - IF we manage to sign a midfield hard man.Barrow seem to be building a decent side then with Jason Taylor just thrown in there for comic relief or something
