Deadline day today

Postby spstag » Mon Sep 02, 2019 7:49 am

Any news on today’s arrivals,

I’m really hoping for a quality creative midfielder and a versatile defender,

Let’s hope we get some good additions today and start to build confidence,
It’s at a low at the min and we don’t want it to get any worse! Onwards and upwards from today!

I’m also surprised we haven’t asked Forest for help so far .. given our so called ‘ special relationship ‘ or has county got back in favour now.

If we fail to sign a CM today, we are going to really struggle to steady the ship in my opinion.

Depends what type, if he goes for another 'workhorse' or fails to address the midfield at all he should be sacked for incompetence

That's my wish too. I hope he can pull it off.

JD has to get today right, it could define the teams and his future.

Would've been a good signing, Flitcroft already hijacking us.

Don't read that as a hijacking, suggests to me we haven't got our arses into gear or we where stalling waiting on conversations with other players.

Lets hope it's the latter (and it pays off) and not being to slow waiting for a green light from Portugal.

I didn't mean that they had gazumped us, just that they had taken someone we were interested in.

I think people on here will implode if after all this summer and transfer window...especially some two weeks after Leeming Street...the club don't get someone in who can add to what we've got and make a difference...but let's face it if you've a choice to work with Keith Hill and David Flitcroft or JD who would you choose?

For me we need strong leaders as JD is lost . He was great with the yuth as they look up to him as ex pro. Now with seniors who have played under some accomplished managers he needs to earn his stripes quickly or the season will be gone before it starts.

We need another Neal Bishop type but with the legs to run around bit more.. Experienced and calm and can get us playing.

Looks a prospect but not a lot of league experience.

Welcome to Mansfield Conor. Let's hope this is a good move for both yourself and Mansfield Town.
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

I don’t think Bishop’s really the type to get us playing, not one of his strengths.

Hence the "but with the legs to run around bit more.. Experienced and calm and can get us playing" Bishops allows us to play and always keeps the ball moving.

:lol:

Someone who doesn’t panic and treat the ball like a hot potato would be ideal.
