    George Ray

    Signing new contract this Thursday, a two year deal.

    Well pleased about that. Feel he has a lot of potential in the game.

    Believe we still need another 3 new recruits, be they signings or loanees. Another centreback. An experienced midfield playmaker, and a rightback.

    Think that playing NG at rightback would be a waste of his potential. Convinced he would make an excellent defensive midfielder.

    Ray was always going to stay because of the compensation but no-one can blame him for seeing if his Agent can get him better pay elsewhere

    Agree on need for more recruits. There will be a midfielder I guess but maybe the holding midfielder / centre back will be just one player

    Seems to me that Perry fits the bill as CH/deep lying midfielder.

    Is that statement more than a guess? I have heard a similar story. Second division player last season with the team now relegated.

    Top priority should be a right back I think, unless there's one made a lot of progress among the Academy lads.

    I'd be quite happy for the midfielder to be a loanee for 6 months as we seem to have a lot of promising youngsters there and signing an experienced player in a 2 or 3 year deal might be hampering the progress of Wintle, Ainley et al. No sense spending our limited resources where we already have some decent options.

    Does anyone actually 'know' anything?
    What to the "iron in the fire" that was "getting very hot"??

    I think some of you are monkeying around!

    I'd love to see Callum Cooke back here on loan for the season. Add an experienced holding midfielder and a RB and that would be a good Base to build on.

    Does anyone know if there has been any information about Callum Cooke and his home club ie is he staying or going out on loan.

    I assume this is about Brad Walker, 21 year old Hartlepool midfielder/CH, out of contract, Hartlepool local press saying he's refused new contract and signing for us - we'd owe compensation though if he does. Do we want another young centre mid?

    He looks like a very good prospect. 6'2, strong, quick and versatility to play CB or DCM. Wigan and Wolves also rumoured to be interested but can't see the latter taking a Conference player with the money they have to burn. I'd prefer some experience but if he's good enough then I trust DA.

    No compensation if he had gone North of the Border thought

    100 games plus a few clubs have been watching him, as mentioned Wolves & Wigan. He can play in midfield as a central defender and also at right back so he is versatile.

    I'd sign him up even thought compensation would be around 75-100k.

    From what I've heard of him he's quite highly rated, would be quite a coup to sign him I think
