McGreal has come out with a cryptic ‘message to the fans’ statement today.

Says the club has signed 6 players but cannot announce them because of the ongoing court case. Here’s his words

‘The club are currently not in a position to announce these signings due to the ongoing court case regarding the ownership of Swindon Town.’

Can’t make head nor tail of it, tbh.

Does Gareth Barry still have some kind of involvement? I wonder if his nephew Brad Barry might be one of the signings as it seems less likely he's going to stay on here.

Looks like GK Nathan Bishop is set to sign on loan from Manchester United - Oldham, Exeter, Tranmere, and Carlisle all interested.

If we manage to move on Stech, we basically require three new goalkeepers, I’m guessing Bishop is set to be our new #1 - a position we desperately need to get right for the first time in years.

Sounds like we are in talks with cardiff city for max waters! his stats are pretty impressive for our level, what are your thoughts crawley fans.
Sorry, been off the forum for a while.

Watters is a strange one. What he did with us would suggest he is miles to good for league 1 & 2 but he was released by Doncaster and then Maidstone were waffling about signing him before we stepped in. Didn't have a pre season so we had to manage his fitness but he ripped through defences and scored something like 14 goals in 16 games before we sold him to Cardiff for over a £million. Crawley fans would be hanging out the bunting if we resigned him.
We have signed Josh Cogley. A right back released from Birmingham and was on loan at Crawley last season. Any good Casey?
Signed on loan from Brum season before last and promptly broke his leg. When he rejoined after Xmas the right side of our defence looked solid. Nothing spectacular just did his job and he gave a good account of himself going forward too. Would have been happy if he had resigned for us.

I didn't recognise his name without the "Dacres" bit in the middle

Grayson was pretty decent when he was here, I feel like he’s pretty injury prone though

On paper, that's a great signing. I reckon that's our squad more or less done bar a loan or two. Still a question over who plays left-back, but I reckon it's looking more and more likely that it'll be a 5-3-2.

Grayson in his interview said he plays 50% of his games in defence - at left back.

It would mean we're possibly still a midfielder short. I'm intrigued to see where Brough plays next season, as he's clearly better further forward.

Sure, fire your team mates up and your fans, they just equalised in the 95th minute of a final, adrenaline must've been overflowing, it was his antics at the penalties 30 minutes later that pissed everyone off, shit talking our players walking up to take them, still talking shit on his line, it's apart of the game to unsettle the oppo, I get it, but when you end up on the losing side after it, your fair game for abuse.
Let it go man, you won :gr: ;)

2 year deal for Rides…..

He’ll slog it out with Matty Foulds for the LB position, then.

Looks like we're gonna miss out on Luke Armstrong, Harrogate are seemingly going to spunk their wad on him, would've loved to have him back here but he is on mega Salford wages, we were paying 50% of them during his loan and he was still on double what our contracted players were on.

Squad shaping up quite well, with another 4/5 yet to sign

Goalkeepers:
Richard O’Donnell, Sam Hornby

Defenders:
Paudie O’Connor, Oscar Threlkeld, Niall Canavan, Liam Ridehalgh, Reece Staunton, Matty Foulds, Finn Cousin-Dawson, Jorge Sikora

Midfielders:
Callum Cooke, Elliott Watt, Charles Vernham, Gareth Evans, Oli Crankshaw, Levi Sutton, Kian Scales

Attackers:
Andy Cook, Abo Eisa, Lee Angol

We’re lacking in attacking options, and we need a thunder bastard in midfield - who I expect to be Yann Songo’o if/when he’s announced.

We’re linked with Connor McAleny still and young forward Danilo Orsi-Dadomo.

We’ve been linked to Danilo Orsi too but I think that’s down to the fact we signed his mate Josh Coley a couple of weeks ago. Looks a good player though and will end up in L2 next season.

Jackett wants a target man striker.

Hmmmmm this would be a meh signing, would be a meh reaction if he stayed too.
Could be useful I think but he’s not really a target man even though he’s 8ft tall.

We definitely need an enforcer such as Songo'o or someone similar as our midfield looks lightweight.

McAleny would be a great signing but reckon we are 3rd in the queue behind Salford and Tranmere. I hope Rupp backs Adams to push the boat out and get him though.

He was poor for us on loan, albeit in L1, with errors in the few times he was involved. Only started at left centre back in a poor away defeat at Northampton and got subbed after 60 odd minutes. A few sub appearances as well when he made some minutes here and there. 81 minutes in total I think. He was only signed as back up though.

It may be that he didn't get a run and settle into the team etc so it may not be indicative of course.

Our team is looking horrific as expected.

Goalkeepers
Rory Watson, Tom Collins

Defenders
Jai Rowe, George Taft, Manny Onariase, Mason O'Malley

Midfielders
Lewis Spence, Alfie Beestin, Tom Pugh, Myles Hypolytte, Tom Pugh, Alex Kenyon

Attackers
Ryan Loft, Kenan Dunnwald-Turan, Aaron Jarvis, Devarn Green

Alex Kenyon (who we just signed) has more FL appearances than the rest of our team combined.

I am sure you will strengthen quite a bit more before the big kick off, because as it stands, that squad screams relegation mate

If he's playing as a left back then god help you. If you play him further forward and don't expect him to do any defending then he'll be one of the best left sided players in the division.
He has zero positional sense, is a walking red card (think he managed to get sent off 3 times for us in the two spells) with his reckless lunges at players, lazy to track players and lets players get past him way too easily.
But then going forward that is a different matter. His set pieces are okay, but running with the ball and in open play his crossing ability is simply sensational. He can beat opposition full backs for fun. Just play him as a left winger and you have a fine player.
Thanks for that!

Curle likes 3-5-2, so he'll probably play left wing-back, with McGahey behind him on the left side of a back 3.

You need Anthony Grant.

We need to re-sign him.
