Which 8 have left? My memory is not great!

Norwood
Bonne
Piggott (loan)
Dobra (not sure he counts as wasn’t really first team?)
Thompson
Celina

Would we consider Ndaba an addition if we count Piggot as an out?

Just wanted to ask about Ndaba, is he really any good? not seen much of him tbh and he was on loan last season, and has a just got himself a new deal, is this to get a decent fee if we sell him on or does KM see him as part of the longer term plans?

Tbh Dazza, I don’t think any of us have seen much if him. He had a stunning loan season at Salford by all accounts , and had come back and fitted in really well with “ the group” in pre season. I think the fact the club have given him a 4 yr deal speaks volumes. It’s a pity Mr Simpson had been so poorly advised by his agent because a similar pathway could have opened up for him here too.

I can see Ndaba forcing his way into that defence group over the next 2 seasons.

Spot on Hallum.

Thanks for the outs list too, I really don’t think we’ll see more than 1 or 2 arrive now, and likely some need to leave. We must be spending more on wages given whose come in vs whose gone out.

A striker or 10 and we should be set! (Maybe both). KM said highly unlikely anyone in before the game on sat now.

I think we’re having a right battle with other clubs, to secure the striker . Just hope we can swing it coz we need one I think.

Yep, I read an article a few days back which granted may be bull but seemed genuine and suggests they have been very interested in signing him. Hopefully not but we shall see.

We have yet another left back 😂😂.

Hertford Town have confirmed that young left-back Max Hudson has joined the Blues following his trial at the end of last season.

TWTD reported in May that the 18-year-old had agreed to join Town having been offered professional terms following a trial spell in which he featured in the final four U23s games last season but with discussions between the clubs ongoing.

Hudson was with Tottenham’s academy as a schoolboy but wasn’t offered a scholarship last summer. As an U15 he spent time at an England training camp.
Town boss Kieran McKenna is likely to be familiar with the full-back having been the U18s coach at Spurs while Hudson was playing for younger age groups.

It’s believed a number of EFL clubs had taken note of Hudson’s performances for Southern League Division One Central Hertford last season with the Blues inviting him to spend time at Playford Road after watching him in a trial match for young players looking to return to the professional game played at Needham Market's Bloomfields.

Potential new signing from Swindon ?


“McKirdy is a versatile attacker, able to play in any forward position, either centrally or out wide.[49] Crewe boss David Artell called McKirdy "a natural goalscorer" and "one of those nuisance forwards, who gets under the feet of centre-halves".”

One good season for Swindon I'm not sure about him, I think we need a Harry Kane type player I understand Portsmouth have one 🙄😂😂

Don't think he implied we expect that caliber of player, only to bring someone in on a lower level that possesses a similar awareness near goal, you know, that's reliable, can contribute and make a difference.

I only focus (invariably) on players brought in, once they've signed or come on board. Failing that it's just rumors and conjecture. Some may indulge in what could be or hope to expect but prefer deals done and take it from there.

Last word on the Bolton game we could just have easily won it on the day. Chances were made and present but we couldn't turn that advantage into the lead it deserved. Point being viewed our attacking options the night before the event, and while may have added before, just what we got seems somewhat insufficient for a long task ahead.

Don't wish to knock these kids before they've had a chance to really prove themselves but some or maybe many may question if what we got in terms of attack and offense are going to prove good enough to provide another promotion opportunity. All hindsight now but took a moment to wonder had we acquired some different players in the summer (that accommodated our aims in League One) would we have won on Saturday instead of just missing out / taking one point from it.

Find that wierd the McKirdy link, especially as Simpson was there, wonder if there is something going on and some swap. Tbh not inspired if is correct, im in Swindon and not heard of the lad lol. I will keep an eye on local news.

I actually can’t stand Cowley. He’s a whinging git who is always pleading poverty at Pompey. Fine, if he’s now trying to big up Pigott to boost his confidence ( suspect that’s pretty much on the floor after his one season here tbh). I still feel we will come to regret gifting him to them . He’ll never return to Town.

On one of those coffee club episodes, Chappers and Edmundson are discussing north v south with Conor adamant that south is best - hopefully that will decide it!

I really hope we don’t lose Chaplin. I think he’s an important player we need to hold onto at least until we’re promoted. His value will increase exponentially and I think MA & KM are well aware of that.

Haven't been following things religiously, but it seems we're getting weaker week by week with very little quality coming in. I don't want to see Chaplin leave and I'm worried that we have a terrible looking strike force, even worse if he goes.
