Thread for news on the activities and transfers of other clubs in League 1 during the close season.

Shows the pull that Pompey still have, although the way they conducted themselves to get him was fairly unprofessional in my book.

He's done an excellent job and they're in our league. It'll weaken them which can only help us.

Scunthorpe sign Dawson from Dale and bid for Clucas from Chesterfield.

 

They're throwing money about and must be contenders next season with a decent start to the campaign

Can't see Clucas joining them unless they're paying him the crown jewels. He'll no doubt have admirers from better clubs than Scunny and even if he doesn't, staying at Chesterfield would be a more enticing proposition.

How are Scunthorpe managing to do it with FFP?

 

Apparently their chairman has said they'll have one of the best budgets in the league next season.

"Crucially, the FL Turnover figure includes donations from the owners to the club and injections of equity. Loans from club owners are understandably not included in the Turnover figure as these would result in growing club debts. up club debts. In League 1 and League 2, a wealthy owner can therefore fund the club spending in a way that is not permitted in other divisions"

 

And righly so in my view; I don't see why a wealthy owner should be stopped from spending money although I would advoicvatre some sort of bond to protect against a club being left with unsustainable contracts if said owner walks away. Have Scunthorpe got one?

Nigel Clough sacked.

 

Bad news that for us. He was never going to get them up. The next bloke might.

Somewhere a squeaky voiced short-arse is polishing up another 100 day plan.

Clough wasn't supposed to get sacked until about day 90....

All the early money on Phil Parkinson. Was a short as 1/10 but drifting now to 1/3.

 

Both Sheffield united & Bradford city fans up in arms at the prospect.
