    Rumour mill

    Should we pay any attention to rumours about a Fir Park return for Louis Moult?

    Just be grateful there was no Fir Park return for Curtis Main!

    The Record suggests we will sign 24 year old winger Justin Amaluzor.

    Confirmed.

    Aside from the absolutely comical name, it does nothing to suggest we're aiming for the required level...not pressing the panic button yet but I have it to hand.

    With a background of Braintree Town, Bognor Regis Town, Barnet and Maidstone he's got to be keen to make a mark with us.

    So, another forward/winger who can no doubt “play anywhere across the front” from the @rse end of English football. Another Jermaine Hylton! I had hoped we had moved away from this type of signing but sadly not.

    Thoroughly uninspiring.

    Can't disagree - when we've got the best part of 11/12 personnel to replace, I'd have expected this to be a fella that we brought in on the last day as a 'desperate' signing. Hoping I'm proved wrong and he turns out to be a rough diamond !

    As someone pointed out on PienBovril, his record isn't dissimilar to that of Marvin Johnson when we signed him. And after a bit of time to settle, he did alright...

    So there are indeed diamonds out there and I don't mind us searching for them - even if the nature of these punts is you need to put up with a few duds to find the gems.

    But that's a completely different project to staffing the first XI here and now, and we're currently a million miles away from being ready there. We need (several) solid, experienced pros in by the start of the league season or we're favourites to go down.

    Another one confirmed who I'd say falls into the 'punt' category but on a three-year deal!!!

    I’m all for giving every player we sign support and the benefit of the doubt but I’m seriously concerned about the standard of player we are signing here. When you consider that we need to basically build an entire team the signings we have made so far are more or less a recycle of some of the guff we have been stung with in recent years - English lower league - then you have to ask questions about the manager and the scouting.
