Rumoured to have Nicky Ajose on trial as well unconfirmed so far though.

Well, weirdly Nicky Ajose was at our game on Saturday in a Exeter city tracksuit. Turns out he’s coaching for us in the academy so not sure if he’s planning on playing anymore. The rumour is that he signed a 3 year deal with us in 2019, so we basically released him from his playing contract a year early so he could coach for the final year of his deal.

Such a shame he hasn’t fulfilled his potential as he should have been a top striker for us at this level. Our Matt Taylor basically said he wasn’t willing to do what we asked of him and therefore he ostracised him from the squad.

Tom Nichols signed a new two year deal at Crawley plus an option for a further year. 15 goals and 15 assists last season so very glad to have kept him.

Yems has said how pleased he is but that Nichols hasn't signed for financial reasons. Bit worried by that but I'm taking it as he is happy here and didn't think earning an extra £50 a week was worth moving for.

Also club captain George Francomb and Jack Powell have signed similar new deals.

That's a great bit of business for Crawley. Often the case the best business you will do is getting your current best players to extend deals rather than any player brought in from outside, similar for us with Conlon I'd say. Nichols is someone wouldn't have minded us having a look at as he played under DC once though obviously not an option now.

Not a new signing, but a contract extension - Max Taylor, signed on a free from Man Utd in the summer has had his one-year deal extended to two. He's become a regular, looked very steady and seems to be getting better with experience. Even his og v Bolchester was tucked away expertly...

We'll need him to be on form with games against Branmere, Bansfield, Burnley and Boldham coming up.

We've parted company with recruitment director Lee Turnbull. Not arsed about him personally as he's had a mixed bag of incomings but the role itself is something we've needed for years so the fear is we're ditching that to go back to giving the manager total control.

Sincerely hope it isn't the case but we shall see. Either way our recruitment needs to be better.

His strategy of signing players from us (a terrible team) never seemed like a strong one

One of Crawley's young centre backs, Harry Ransom, has joined Dover on loan.

Odd as it was reported he couldn't play for us due to recovering from illness.

Not fussed at all about Turnbull moving on, a few ‘worries’ online over going back presumably to manager led recruitment. Other than Cook (someone who realistically would’ve have very few options last January when he first signed given his wages) and Canavan who’s basically moved back home, he hasn’t signed anyone that would move us forward, in fact we brought in almost exclusively mid table L2 rejects. There’s not one player in our squad who would get into our 2013 side that went up, if we ever did go up we would need an entire new first 11 to compete.

Two really poor signings on the face of it but I like RiftHouseLad constant positive vibe, hope DC can work his magic on them.

What is beyond any realm of understanding is they sign all these forwards but wouldn't offer decent deals to the likes of Oates/Bennett etc. You'd think these extra signings wages would equal one or even two strikers with a better track record. But no this is Pools after all

Now is that the same underwhelmed as when Oates signed,lol
Can,t see Timi getting much game time after Tuesday
but unfortunately Killip will,he really does let himself and the team down
at times.
Timi is one of the most frustrating players around, got most of the attributes to have a good career but has trouble seeing what's in front of him. Huge confidence player and he ain't playing with any at the minute.

We've signed some strikers, Mike Fondop ex everyone by the looks of it and Jordan Cook , last seen at Gateshead.
Jordan Cook is a really weird signing, I’d just presumed he’d not play in the league again. He’s actually pretty decent, the very definition of ‘he’ll do a job’. The problem with Cook is that absolutely nobody knows his best position, even he probably doesn’t know. There’s clearly talent there and he’s well thought of here.

Maybe the deals were result/goal based, For sure they were offered more dosh.
Don,t blame Bennet.
But Oates, He was a big fish in our squad and i,m certain DC would have based
Our tactics around him.
But now he,s a little fish among a couple of better forwards.
Doubt he,ll ever be the main man at Mansfield.

Timi was immense in the playoff final and i agree he has what it takes.
But the way he dealt with the goalscorer for Sutton was poor to say the least.
But Killip had every oppertunity to pull him out of the shit, And he also failed.
Hope Killip makes me eat my words.

James Perch out for the season with a fractured skull - going to be a long slog to January. Really feel for him to he may never play again realistically.

Anybody aware of any half decent free agent CBs?

Was N'Gala the guy Eastleigh signed for a reported £100k from Barnet when they were managed by Martin Allen, only for Martin Allen to rock up weeks later at Eastleigh and then released him? :lol:
