Stockport County.
RE: Palmer. It will have to have been in our best interests. He's a club legend and our squad is hardly bloated (we had 3 kids on the bench yesterday). Whether our best interests is that it's a good fee or greasing the wheels for Tshimanga, time will tell.

Tom Nichols was not in the squad to face Swindon yesterday. Thought he probably picked up a niggle (picked up a little niggle at the gym yesterday. Well, he pronounces it Nigel) or this horrible cold that's doing the rounds.

Reporters asked afterwards and Matt Etherington replied he is fine and has been brilliant since I arrived but the decision was "taken out of my hands".

Either he has said something against the owners or he is being sold....or both.

Second highest assists this season and that for a team that has struggled.

Well we definitely wanted him in the summer.

Rumours here that Grimsby may be looking at taking Mark Beck, and Poolie were watching Jack Lambert and Daniel Dodds on Friday. Curle was at the game, I thought he was just sussing it out for a promotion campaign in 2 years time.

Rumours a couple of weeks ago up here that we have made a bid for him. We tried in the summer too

Apparently we've made an enquiry to Lincoln about Tom Hopper and additionally a bit of an ITK Town fan on The Fishy reckons Scott Pollock at Boston is on our radar.

I had exactly the same thought so Googled him and was amazed to discover he is 28 years old. I'd advise not Googling him as it appears that he was actually 23 when he was at Harrogate and looked about 42 years old and it's all just a bit of a headfuck trying to make head nor tail of it.

I don't think we'll offer him a new deal in the summer, perhaps a reduced deal, but I'd be a little surprised if we sold him in January unless it's a decent offer. Well, not just a decent offer but we need to replace him - we only have two senior strikers in the squad and he's one of them so unless we sign two, I don't think we'd let him go tbh.

He's the last of the pre-Covid contracts as well so I'm guessing it'll be a decent wage he's on and for that wage, we'd need a bit more availability from, too. After being an ever-present two seasons ago and fit as a fiddle, he's reverted to picking up injuries again in the last two seasons (admittedly picking up a stress fracture of the shin in a tackle can't be helped).

Two senior strikers is plenty for some managers!

Our dof stated we have received two offers for Tom Nichols and that he (not the manager) felt he wasn't in the right frame of mind to face Swindon.

That's one dof I want sacked.

Have you tried Adelakun there? Not suggesting he'll be any good but can't be much worse than as a winger!
We’ve tried him at right back when our on loan not very good one got sent off, he actually had his best game for us there. I don’t think we’ve tried him up front as such but if we have I definitely didn’t notice, so that should tell you something

Far better player than Tom Denton. Looks ancient, but only 28. I couldn't believe that either. If you've had Theo Robinson up front this season, I wouldn't scoff at Beck to be honest. In reality, I'm sure Curle was looking at Dodds. Right Back on loan from Boro. Too good for our level, but whether a relegation battle in a crap team is what he needs at this stage in his development is debatable.

According to the daily star Wilfried Bony has signed a short term contract with us, he has been coaching the development squad this season.

Whisper: Some jocks going back North of the border in January.
Raj courting Peter Ridsdale.

Maybe Seatonpoolie will know.

Surely Hartlepool could do better than Peter Risdale when he was our chairman he sold our best players for cheap mind you we were in administration at the time.

Was his loan actually beyond january, can,t remember.
Season long loan, just had a look back on twitter there.

Not set in stone obviously, just what I’ve heard.
That he is one of the ones out the door in January, as well as some of the jocks as you mentioned above.

I have been told 4 will be leaving,club & players have come to an agreement to terminate contracts,with 7 players coming in.
One of them being Armstrong,as Harrogate are in the shit financially.
Hopefully it'll be Tumilty,Murray (without doubt one of the worst CB's we've had)Paterson & Hamilton.
Ridsdale was at the match Saturday.

Not that I have any reason to doubt you with your record but if we sign Armstrong I think I'd be fully erect for the rest of the year.
