I'm led to believe we've signed Enfield Borough winger Bruno Tavares on a 1 year deal. He's been a triallist so has done enough to earn a deal.

Any Swindon fans about to fill us in on Matt Palmer? Seems like he’s had a bit of a tricky spell with yous, but on paper also looks like a decent signing for us in the Vanarama.

Good player. I thought when he was given a run in the side he looked decent. Good passer, moves the ball nicely. Didn't look out of place in league 1 certainly. Should do well for Notts I reckon, he surely could do a job in league 2 so a good signing for you.

Apparently we've also signed McKirdy. Be happy with that, read he can be hit and miss but at this level sounds an exciting player.

See that Tom Pope has joined Congleton Town in the North West Counties League which is basically step 5 in the pyramid. Not sure what further proof anyone would need we were right to release him to be honest though am sure some Vale fans will still try and say he should have had one more year.

Interestingly the Holy One has rolled up at Congleton Town.

Josh Wright not played any pre season friendlies so far. A couple of players were asked where he was and said they hadn't seen him.

He still has two years on his contract so he is injured you say. Am I clutching at straws? Well I did think so but then this popped into my consciousness


I actually don't think Josh is that bad but it does look as though he and his brother are looking at a life beyond football.

There is some suggestion that it’s Greg Luer, ex Hull
Long way from home if it is.

He was signed for Hull from a team in Sussex (Burgess Hill Town)

Casey

As a matter of interest I looked up Greg on Google. In some pictures he is a clean shaven keeper, in others he is rather hirsute. In one he is black and another he is Dean Cox.

Pope isn't as good as he used to be but there is the possibility he was offered deals at higher lever clubs say national league but didn't want travel 2 or 3 hours to that club so decided a 30 minute drive to Congleton will do him.

Exactly what James Hanson has done joining Farsley Celtic, National league north. Said he made the decision not to sign anywhere over an hour away (ended up about 15 mins away from his house).

Some talk I think that the shoulder was a problem and was advised against playing higher level after that horrific injury at Sunderland.

Half expected him to roll up at Hanley Town with Dickenson, Dagnall and Dodds!

Pools have signed striker Olufela Olomola, been the best of the bunch of trialists so far.

Always remember him at Yeovil a few years back. Looked a real talent but his career has stalled since. Could be a good signing if he gets going.

In Olomola's defense he signed for us which is a death sentence for any players. You are guaranteed to get injured at least 10 times if you sign for us.

Have you ever got anything positive to say about your club? You need to stare down the barrel of a gun to get some perspective. It’s a new season, anything is possible!

Yes, but his attitude stinking must have contributed to him now being an unemployed footbaler trialling for a basket case club. It's dumb.
Definitely McKirdy’s attitude rather than his ability being the problem. A shame he was left on the bench in the playoff final against Tranmere instead of the likes of Azeez and Marsh-Brown.

We've finished 23rd (League 1), 20th and 22nd in the past three seasons. We don't even have a maniac owner to get rid of to give us some hope, our owner isn't determined to drain us of money he's just incompetent. We released 18 players and signed 3. We're doomed this season I think I am allowed to be negative.

We were stareing down the barrel of a very big gun, days away from the trigger being pulled.
And that now is hopefully buried in history.

So for any struggling out there keep supporting. " don't let them grind you down"
the club in whatever form will always be yours.

Good post RL. We were less than 1 hour away from extinction and were only saved when 2 former players wrote off something like £3 mill in unpaid wages.
