Assume it’s a reference to those not on the trip to Greece and training with the U23’s, like Anderson when he was here.

These are the ones who have been bombed out, no way would we be paying their wages, that's why they've been dumped by Forest as their wage bill is too expensive.

These are the ones training with the U23's

The club are also understood to be open to interest in Jason Cummings, Zach Clough and Gboly Ariyibi, with the trio currently training with the under-23 squad.

But defender Hefele, striker Murphy, midfielder Bridcutt and keeper Steele have definitively been told to find themselves new clubs.

Sometimes in life you need to take a step back to take 2 forward. They can't always be on 15-20kp/w. A year rattlin in a shed load of goals or being a stand out performer in promotion winning side n you can name your price next time. Or am I just being silly?

I don't think Ariyibi would be on big wages. The other two might be, can't see one being Cummings but maybe Forest would be willing to stand a portion of Cloughs wages for us to come here. Won't be Hefele, Bridcutt, Murphy or Steele I wouldn't have thought.

Did any of the young lads in the list play against Alfreton? I know Johnson did. We may have been waiting to see the standard of Alfreton before judging their performances.

I've heard David Johnson's lad is unreal.

Jayden Richardson would be a good addition as competition for White and Preston

Brennan is a superb player and a cracking lad as well, he'll definitely make it. Same with Arvin Appiah. Jayden is just like Hayden White & loves bombing forward from right back. Any of these would be brilliant for us.

The fourth and most secret of signings must be imminent. Just seen Quentin Tarantino at Field Mill. Carolyn must be upping the stakes with her player reveal videos.

Not sure if all the trialists have been rejected but none of them appear to be in today's team.

It was the whole unnamed trialist thing. In this day and age people can identify a player very quickly. Also, a players agent is hardly going to keep it a secret that we are looking at their player.

Agreed. This whole naming a player as a trialist is complete crap. It just makes a manager look very insecure & very stupid.

Anyone else think we're short at centre half?

Invariably Pearce, Sweeney and Preston will pick up injuries and suspensions and if more than one come along at the same time we're left a bit bare.
White and Benning can slot in for the odd game and Gibbens may make the step up but I'd like to see at least one recognised centre half come in to offer cover when needed. Even if it's a young lad on loan from a Champ/Prem team much like Sweeney last season.

No, a goal scoring midfielder is the Achilles heel still

Shame about the trialist the young lad playing on the right looked very impressive would have been a good signing

We have James Clarke who’s been just as impressive and not faced major discipline issues either.

No need for three Right Backs.

I still expect 2/3 players to come in.

We offered Turner a deal which was rejected so JD must've wanted another Centre Half. The same goes for an attacking midfielder with David Ball turning us down.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a right winger come in either.

Plenty of time yet for signings. The window doesn't close until 2nd September.

JD has inherited a decent squad. It's just a matter of not rushing and getting the 2 or 3 quality players to round off the squad.

My concern is taking on trialists when we should be putting plans in place to either lose the likes of CJ or have succession plan for Jan when he will more than likely go...
