So we don't get a replacement for DD who apparently was going to be the driving heart of the team. No disrespect to the lad from Leeds but we don't need a jack of all trades.

Bit harsh on the lad from Leeds to be honest, he is cover for 2 positions if nothing else. (He may turn out to be brilliant by the way)

That's why I said no disrespect to him but we have a specific issue and failing and you don't expect someone who is goid at different positions to be the answer to what we are crying out for.

He doesn't need to be on the field much but his experience at Bury and the turmoil they went though but still achieved promotion could be just what this talented squad needs.

Watched him play against us last season, he was slow and wasnt the Stephen Dawson I remembered, thin he even got sent off? Put some timber on since he was with us last.

Dawson started 4 league games last season, only 1 of which was after mid Sept. He was sent off against us in the EFL Trophy.
In fact just 13 league starts in the last 2 seasons.

Goodness me I hope we sign him, looks a real prospect.
