I think Downes is the One player we should fight to keep, I think he's tough and got quality, our standout player for sure.
Yes Mike, but he'll never be a good defensive midfielder - I mean, he hasnt got a silly beard :|

We aren’t signing anyone are we now 🤷‍♀️

I wonder if we are finding it very tough to get players in …

The trouble is some players will wait for a championship club that will pay them more money we don't need them we want hungry players that want success, who would want to go to say Derby with all the trouble that have when you can go to Ipswich which is on the up and will hopefully be in a higher league after next season.

Exactly as Ashton said the other day it could be a couple of weeks before some of the signings are confirmed.

I’m not really sure of the significance of the transfer window when we signed two players before the window officially opened. How does that work?

Guess we’ve got to be patient. I’m guessing players and their agents are looking for the best deal, but they’ll also won’t want to wait too long to get fixed up at a club. Have to admit I thought we’d have a couple more through the door by now. Bit too early to panic, though.

I think it's a couple of weeks yet before pre-season starts.

Give it a few weeks and some will be saying BCWYWF as these new owners haven’t got a clue and can we have Evans back. :wink:

Of course we are, Liz - I thought this would be the case all along. It doesn't matter what size transfer budget we have, decent players are going to choose to go to the Championship above us every time given the choice.

Dozzell is a player with skill and the potential to shine at a higher level, but not a Cook battler who’s going to part of the plan to get us out of this division. Time for him to go - best of luck to him (until we meet in the championship next year)

Three championship clubs were after Burns but he chose us Gary, or do you not think he's decent ?

Fine if that happens and he moves 9n again. We’ve got a reported “ significant” sell on %…….

Sometimes players just need to move to get that kick up the arse don’t they. He’s done absolutely nothing here has here. 🤷‍♀️

Rotherham 0
Portsmouth 1
Town 2

We ain't doing to bad atm, Portsmouth and Sheffield Wednesday have shipped out loads too and are in a similar rebuilding situation to us.

Think Charlton signed Stockley yesterday. He was on loan to them last season from Preston. Looked like he was going to Portsmouth but Charlton came in and got him at the last moment.

I’m in agreement. If he’s a success elsewhere, then good luck to him, but I can’t see how he’d fit in a L1 Cook side. We need energetic, physical players in our team. I can’t remember one game where he pulled the strings and took control of the midfield.
I’d like to see him do well elsewhere. He said it himself that he needs to get out of his comfort zone here. Bang on. Think this move suits all parties.

Someone on Twtd who has a friend who works at the club ( yer, yer, I know :lol: )…says the Club will announce two new signings Tomorrow , and that then players have been at the club today having their medical.

IF true I hope one of them is this Crook. 👍
