Quietly got on with it and finished up with a quality squad.

Contrast that with last year (and "Big" Al this year), well done Flitcroft/Radfords :thumbup:



Very much agreed, it really shows that it’s better to take time and sign quality first team players,

Well done Flitcroft and the radfords

Hang on.


All well and good congratulating people and giving out back slaps, but we've not won a game yet, which is actually all that matters.

Ha ha. That's the spirit.
3 superb signings will go a long way towards winning lots of games hopefully.

Now this isn't a moan, because personally I think he's a good signing, and I am chuffed with it...

But I think a few fans need a warning that Craig Davies will polarise the fanbase a bit. We all have the one or two moaners that sit in and around us who have to have their chosen target for boo-boy of the season, and I think he will be a prime candidate given the level of expectancy and the thought that he's highly likely to be on a good wage.

He comes across as lazy, to put it simply, and he's usually on on penalties too, which I expect he will be for us. Like a much more expensive, but a million times better version of Rob Duffy if you will. Don't expect him to be the workhorses that Hemmings and Rose were last season, don't expect him to chase down poor balls beyond him and not just stand there and moan at the instigator of the poor pass....because he will.

But give him the right service, the right balls into him, and he can be devastatingly good at what he does....and he will score goals.
However there will be games when that supply line will be off it, and inevitably Davies will look uninterested. And that will be prime ammunition for the moaners.

Hopefully we are on it more often than not this coming season, because he will be the "different" type of striker we need...the one we all hoped Spencer was, and before him Pat Hoban, and before him Matt Rhead etc etc

It will be interesting to see who start as first choice strikers although David Flitcroft could play just one up front.

Picture of squad on coach shows a black guy with face blurred out on the right. Could be Nathan Cameron if Cunno was right. Also David Mirfin appears to be on the coach.

Exactly. So learn from last seasons disappointment. All well and good thinking we have the 'quality squad', but its about delivering results.

Germany: great squad, world cup holders. Out in the groups. Didnt play at all well.

But yes they do look good players on paper, but its how they play im more interested in.

Would say for a guess Nathan Cameron, would make sense a free agent.

They obviously have learnt from last season, which was exactly my point.

Cameron looked an absolute rock in Bury's promotion season.

Not played much the last couple though, I would assume due to injuries. Still only 26 so could be a decent signing if he can stay fit.

Edit: Just reading the Bury forum and would seen his knee is gone and he can't really train or play regularly.
