Wo. Walsall are doing some good business this summer. Did he get released by Tranmere? He looked pretty good in the handful of games I saw him other than the playoff semi second leg.

Stephen Quinn signed on for a year, still quality on the ball with the ability to dictate play at this level, legs were fine last season so hopefully should be fine in that regard.


edit - just noticed northstandexile post.

Yep was released by us. Overall he’s been decent for us but he has a few mistakes in him. If he’s not next to someone that will literally tell him what to do and when then he’s dodgy. But if he does have that help that he’s great. Good luck to him.

Mannny Monthe signed for us.

I’m a little surprised at his destination as the indications were he was looking for a move back down south. Manny had tweeted his farewells last week so knew he was off. I’d imagine a deal was offered by Rovers.

If Monthe could stay switched on and his distribution was better, he’d be getting a deal higher up the leagues. As it is, his physical strength and relative pace are Manny’s main assets. I don’t think he’ll be that easy to replace

Walsall is further south tbf.

Monthe is good because he’s big and gets in the way. If he wasn’t the size he is he probably wouldn’t be a pro footballer. His ball skills are a bit hit and miss to say the least.

Remember a good bit of radio commentary from Bob Hunt - ‘Monthe strides magnificently out of defence……..but oh no he’s left the ball behind him!’

Signed Tristan Abrahams. 2 year deal

Have to be honest that I’m a bit surprised he got another League club. Had decent potential when he came through our youth system, but been extremely sporadic in his appearances over the past few years which has hindered his progress. Absolutely garbage on loan for us at the back end of last season.

He offered very little for us on loan in the second half of last season - But IMO he didn't really suit our formation. He needs to play in a two up front to try and get the best out of him, like Newport originally did.

We played him wide left a few times but his goal threat was minimal, then again second half of last season we was mainly crap, so it was a two way thing.

He's quick and works hard though.

Abrahams looks ok at this level and may eventually have a good season but he was pretty average for us and the subsequent games I've seen him in.

Port Vale champions. Crawley and Carlisle for the relegation spots.

Going on bullishness levels you’d have to have Scunthorpe as bottom 2 candidates surely? A number of their fans on social media seem to think they’re likely to struggle.

So that’s another one off the books by the look of it. Rumour is he’s Burton bound. Decent enough but replaceable.

However, we probably still need 10 signings so I really hope Matt Taylor has his recruitment A game this summer.
Could be a shrewd signing for someone.

Likely to struggle is an understatement.

We only just stayed up last year and we lost the few players who kept us up.

Yep, agree. And hopefully we will be able to replace him well. Should be an interesting couple of weeks.
I hope MT is just as shrewd with his signings ;)

Heck of an athlete, very quick and he will chase all day, but his decision-making was often poor and defences seemed to find him easier and easier to handle. Heading needs to improve.

FWIW, I think Abrahams may come good at some point. As others have said, he’s got all of the physical attributes to make him a very good forward. If someone can coach him properly and play him in his best position, I can see him doing well.

Go on, I'll bite.

Why Crawley for a relegation spot?

We've signed a young centre half as back up and a proven midfielder (promoted from this division not that long ago) and only lost a back up centre half from a side that finished upper mid table.

I will admit we need more (a forward especially) but relegation seems a bit harsh.

We are signing Joss Labadie. Not sure we need another tough tackling midfielder though, but he does add experience, strength and power to our quite small and young midfield. Very happy and excited with these two signings to mark the start of our new managerial regime, early days still but so much more exciting.

Almost certainly going to be made captain.
Horrible horrible player. Without doubt the biggest cheat in the division last season and the player most likely to get an opposition player send off due to his "screaming like a banshee rolling on the floor clutching a body part "act. I`m looking forward to the day when somebody snaps him in half quite frankly.

As for Manny. I like the guy . Most of us do . He`s quick and he`s a strong lad but his left foot is purely for standing on and his brain goes to sleep in the vital moment far too often for my liking. His performance at Exeter last season was a perfect example of what a disaster he can be when he has a bad day. As somebody said before put him next to an experienced steady CB and he`ll do a job for you but put him with a rookie and he is an accident waiting to happen

Crawley will be nowhere near the bottom. Lots of continuity in their squad/manager a solid side last season. Everything you need to have a decent season.

No particular reason, just throwing around some names really. Haven't done any background checks behind any of my predictions, just saw that Carlisle had lost a load of players to Barrow and saw Crawley had signed the poor man's Jack Payne and so plumped for them.

It's worse than the poor man's Jack Payne. We have THE Josh Wright !

Watching the Euros has confirmed my long held opinion that playing sideways is one of the worse things to do in football. What I'm told about Payne and what I know about Wright they'll have to change or my toys will follow my dummy.

Playing sideways maintains possession. Nothing wrong with that. Thought we controlled the game very well v Croatia once we got in front, lots of keep ball/sideways passing meant very few defensive scares. If you’ve got the ball the other team can’t score.
