It'll get desperate, and Nicky Maynard will be signed.

A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
Last season they had Josh King to come in from the flank as a backup striker, but no more.

Surely they won't sell both Gestede and Rhodes? Especially being under an embargo making replacements hard to sign.

Apparently as part of the Gestede to Villa deal we're getting Callum Robinson on loan, didn't watch enough PNE last year to know if he's a winger or striker though.

I'd take a wild punt and say they'd spend the money they get from the two and buy new strikers.....

As Mark says they have an embargo though - although who knows if that means anything!

He played wide left for us, cutting in similar to Agbonlahor for Villa. Not really physical enough to play a central role.

Good prospect and i'd definitely have had him back in League One, not sure about this level though, other than to give us a different option on the bench.

Didn't forest's embargo only stop permenant transfers? it could just be a loan deal with high fee where player agrees to join at the end of the deal being the end of the embargo. Easy enough ways around it I'm sure.

He scored against us at AG last year. Looked lively whenever I seen him in action, not sure whether he'd be any good in the Championship.

Not sure whether it's worth its own thread... but it's an improvement. Feel like we're getting somewhere.

Give it a few days and Hbk will be back asking important questions such as which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is the best?

We can't sign players for a fee and wages no more than about 11k a week (loans or frees). We can also have a squad up to 24 established players.
