Chris O'Grady and Giles Coke are not in Morocco - getting fit and socialising with new team mates - and yet they have extended contracts.  Are they training locally?   Are we likely to buy or borrow any more players - especially Strikers, Centre Backs and a Winger?  Are we looking like a promotion chasing team or do we have glaring omissions?

Yes, obviously.

I'm confident we will sign more players we always make our best signings late in the day too as wage demands begin to drop and particularly when bigger clubs have worked out which youngsters they can afford to loan out.

I'm not panicking too much at the minute. If I remember correctly we didnt sign Callum Lang until August last year. Plenty of time yet. In my view we still need 2 centre backs, a proper left full back (it's not Iacovitti's position) a central or utility midfielder, and at least x2 strikers, in an ideal world, x2 strikers and a winger/attacking mid who can also be thrown up front.

Worry for me is who is making the signings and have they got the clout to attract the quality that is so clearly needed.

Mills coming in suggests they have if it’s true we beat off competition for him..

1 year contract doesn't scream beating them off with a stick to me.

They're most likely  on trial somewhere.

Maybe the player is keeping his own options open, they'll be plenty of takers come the end of this season.

I hope everyone is aware how likely Mills is to become the new Eardley.

After all and sundry bigging him up he will need to be the next Dani Alves to avoid a constant barrage of abuse.

Looks like he means business judging by the beach training, already fitter than any player from last season

I haven't seen anybody "bigging him up" other than a few who say they watched last seasons swashbuckling Morecambe side very closely - this makes them utter maniacs whose opinions on anything should be dismissed out of hand....
