Alan Nixon has pretty much confirmed Brett Pitman and Jonathan Grounds are leaving. Good to get what will be high earners off the wage bill.

Pitman will get goals at this level and Grounds occasionally looked a decent ball playing centre back.

Fair enough. We’re in need of an experienced number 9 who’s a natural finisher to complete our front line.

In a 4-2-3-1 we’d have Luke Thomas, Aaron Collins and Sam Nicholson all behind that number 9 causing absolute chaos.

Without that number 9 though I think there’ll be lots of huff, puff and pace but lacking and end finisher
Hello stranger

We've made some decent signings on paper. Could do with a number 9. We have lots of direct players at the moment, nobody that can hold the ball up.

If you’re a pro footballer and you are not insured then you 100% don’t train or play.

As much as Swindon fans don’t like to hear a player is refusing to train or play they have to think of themselves in that situation.
No you are completly wrong.....We went through the same thing two seasons back when on the opening day of the season when 2 players got off the bus and refused to travel on the opening day of the season
Both never played again and got good moves
Those players should have stayed on the bus and played ............Why you may ask
Because they are football creditors they WILL get paid in full for every game they played

One of our trialists the other night was Alex Perry, previously of Wigan.

No idea if he's any good but let's hope he's a world beater.
Was with us as a kid and he was well thought of, got released as we started cutting costs

You’re being very kind to Grounds, there. Almost every game he threw in a dreadful cock up or 2. My heart always sank if he was on the team sheet.

Rhys Bennett has turned down our contract offer and signed for Gillingham.

Disappointed but not surprised. I think he is good enough to be at League 1 level.

Hopefully young Morgan Feeney can step up and fill his place for us this season.

If they were both insured to play then yes they should have got on the bus and played. However, if a player isn't insured from a career threatening injury then absolutely they have the right not to train or play.

There was/is no proof they were not insured. All that was certain was that they were paid 2 weeks late. 2 fucking weeks.

Looks like we're signing Mampala. The latest hint GIF is something about a trial and since he's the only trallist.

Sounds like he's been decent in friendlies so should be a good signing.

I'd stopped thinking in terms of us having an outstanding offer for him weeks ago. He said the offer we made was insulting something like two months ago, a couple weeks later it sounded lke we'd come back with a better offer but that was just a hunch and nothing further was said, he was on trial with Burton a couple weeks back so I think he was never going to sign for a League 2 club, not even Barrow.

He has been good in the friendlies. He has a great touch, as shown for his goal at Workington and his assist for Toure at Kendal the other night.

Woupd have liked to see him against better oppo, but beech has obviously seen enough in training matches to think he’s up to the required level.

‘His all-action approach has endeared him to the fans with an ‘announce Manny’ response accompanying every post the club makes, from ticket news to match reports’

Any one who does that ‘announce’ bollocks should be banned. Constantly polluting clubs social media like that, fuck off. Football clubs will announce signings as and when they are done. Until then pipe the fuck down and stop acting like excited 5 year olds.

I see Wrectum have signed Paul Mullin. Wonder if they will get the 32 goals in 46 games version or the 41 goals in 214 games version.

Wrexham, Stockport and Notts County all have squads miles better then ours, how depressing.

The club is really listening to my complaints as we also sign Harry Bunn.

If you ignore the fact our last two signings last played for Conference North clubs they're great signings

Only thing really lacking for Mansfield is a another CB, a solid first choice type signing.

Do think we lack pace too, but we still need to shift O’Keefe and Stech.

Rumours that Sunderland have made 4 bids for Josh Key, the latest being £1mn.

If he goes I will close the door on the way out.

Thought you'd consider selling a prospect for a seven figure sum a good thing. I mean it's always disappointing that they go but it's hardly unusual for Exeter and the money you get for them is so often disappointing that when it's actually substantial it should be a good thing shouldn't it?

Probably better than the sort of stuff fans have become known for polluting clubs' social media with lately.
