Wonder what kind of midfielder. If its a defensive one weve missed out on Hiram Boeteng today to Cambridge He's the best I've seen at this level since we came back up

He hasn’t a clue he was quite content with his squad a few weeks ago yeah can understand wanting to Replace Rose who he hadn’t played (injured ?? ) but was straight onto the Northampton bench . I wouldn’t trust him with anymore budget to waste after his summer recruitment ..

Most on here were content too, funny how ridiculously OTT people go after five games. Bottlejobs, just like our team :D

I'm not unhappy with the players we have signed, just fed up of the awful aimless, boring and turgid tactics.

A decent manager would get a right tume out of this lot I reckon.

I would like to see a winger or two come in. I was previously happy with the wing back options, but having seen how GC sets his team up I don't thing a 5-3-2 is the best formation.

You either back him with the players he wants or sack him and get someone new in before the window closes because anyone who wants to play with wingers would be short of options.

I assume the club will still be allowed to sign free agents after the window closes.

Why would he want to sign any more players .. he’s let better players go...and signed inferior ones in there place
Surely not another couple to add to the wage bill.

In fairness we have played 8 Competive games so far..W 0 D3 L5 goals for 5 goals against 16 . I think you will find the League starts to take shape after 10 games so five to go and we need to win at least three of those to be in mid table or thereabouts. If that doesnt happen I think he will be gone

I think most of our new signings are alright.... its a young side with potential, we've not signed many ready to go established league two players and it will take them time to get going.

I think he signings are alright too, but it’s wrong to say we’ve not signed established L2 players.

Stech, Rawson, McLaughlin, Clarke, Perch, Maris, Bowery all established at this level, some the level above.

O’Keeffe and Menayese, maybe, but both played plenty of games last season.

Reid, not established at L2 but he’s 26 and played plenty of games.

Do not trust him with another penny of your money JR... 12 signings in already.... 0% improvement.

Will get better value for money buying Carolyn some more surgery.

No point wasting more money in a pandemic whilst the EFL clubs are selling the soul of English football to overseas billionaires.

Just play the players we have and gel them into a team. Get to 50 points as soon as possible.

if we're gonna stick with GC t'will be hard to achieve that paltry amount. I doubt he'd have made 50 pnts last season either if it'd finished properly.

If we do sign anyone they'll either be desperate or coming here for the wrong sort of reasons.

No half decent player with ambition is going to want to come here if they look at the league position, manager's record, and do any research into his god awful tactics and system.
