Expected to announce 2 new signings over the next couple of days. I believe it’s a CM and a striker. Also there’s still a possibility of Andrew Dallas joining on loan despite signing a new contract at Cambridge recently.
I'd like a Wes Thomas clone. Athletic, technically adept good movement. We missed him last year I think.I’d have liked Dallas permanently, but he wouldn’t have got into our strongest line up (perhaps part of why he’s stayed at Cambridge), so it’s hard to see what the point of loaning him would be.
Our striker signing is really bloody difficult to get right. I think everyone agrees that our strongest line up is going to have Rodrigues/Roberts/Wootton as a front three. So we need someone who’ll accept that they might not start all the time. But they also might, because Roberts, so they need to be good enough to do so. Ideally it’ll be someone who can cover Wootton as a lone striker, but also play with him effectively in a pair as a different option. Tricky one to find.
Wasn't in our squad yesterday by all accounts and has been told he's free to leave the club and has been transfer listed so might well have been him.Someone reckoned we had Ira Jackson Jr playing for us yesterday?
What's the deal with him Grimsby?
Unlikely? I wouldn't be remotely surprised if our chairman sniffed out some more £££££
We'll be the whipping boys next season the way we are heading.
He's a good all-rounder. Holds the ball up well, pretty good in the air, brings others into play, good finisher etc. Only slight cons I'd say are he's not pacey so gets caught offside running too early sometimes and he won't play through any niggles. He missed about half of the season but still got easily into double figures for us.

Well he's a goalscorer definitely. The problem is he's made out of glass. Missed half the season due to injury last year. Still managed double figures in goals despite that though.
Just rumours but heard Adi Yussuf close to agreeing a 1 year deal back with Grimsby. Was alright last time he was here in L2 then dropped down and got himself a move to Blackpool. Not a huge intent of a big name but hard worker and will get around 10 goals.
