Ish Miller? No! They will not let him go.

In an ideal world we'll get Max Power. Maybe sign David Mirfin from Scunthorpe, and Matty Pattison from Gateshead. Even take a chance on reforming Nile Ranger.   Just to have the dream line up of

I've heard we're in for him, Brian Stock, Clarke-Harris back on loan, and Campbell-Ryce on a free.   Sort of a Klok, Stock & Two Double-Barrelled.             (I'll see meself out.)

Or strikers...need to offload Cassidy and Brown as a minimum they really are a waste of a wage. I imagine Cassidy is on a decent wedge too as he was literally the whole piece to Darren Kellys puzzle!

Kelly didn't have a plan & he probably didn't even sign Cassidy. We don't 'need' to offload anybody as we need a bigger squad this year.

We really need to offload Brown. Not because of wages. He's a liability. He needs replacing with a left-back.

Was told that we are trying to offload Winchester

 

I was thinking that he might possibly have been one of those Robinson referred to about leaving, after he only got 5 minutes against Wigan along with Brown.

Young midfielder made his debut for FC United against Hereford on Saturday getting rave reviews called Kieran Glynn, attended Hopwood Hall and must of been on the radar for Oldham you'd think, might be worth a look BP?

Was going to join our Sunday league team due to his contract allowing it but after his last two appearances for Fc United their manager is giving him a pro contract. Was a class above in training and In the game. Was too good took the piss and banged in hat tricks

If ever a player in recent years polarised opinion, then it is Winchester.

 

He's not good enough at this level because of his lack of commitment and application. A new start in your form of a kick up the arse could be just what he needs.

Flynn, Banks, Green, Klok, Winchester.

 

Fane is a central midfielder isn't he? How many do you want?

Aside from Klok and Green, who are both holding midfielders, none are actually proper centre mids...

 

There's no Mike Jones replacement there, anyway.

Blokes had more kicks up the arse than any player I know yet he still doesn't get it, blowing out of his arse again pre season, not sure if he still smokes the tabs but you have to question the blokes desire to succeed in the game, great to watch at times but getting to the stage where enoughs enough.

Seems ludicrous we would sign him up for another year then try to get rid a month later, especially with NI connections

 

I like him but nobody can say he doesn't deserve it if he's offloaded

He's done well to score 56 goals as a holding midfielder.

 

Was Jones a proper CM? He'd previously played a few seasons as a winger and often played there for us...

At his best Jones was box to box. I can't imagine a 33 y-o player will be able to fulfil that role. Jones had a reyt engine

 

Going off what people on here have said, Green is a holding player. Still not convinced we have enough true CMs even if Green can fill the position of up and down midfielder tho. I don't know whether it's injuries or just being out of favour but he's only had more than 30 season appearances twice in six years.

We could replace 2015/16 Jones with a well-rooted tree. He was garbage.

I agree. We didn't have an adequate CM til Palmer came in and played the role I'm on about.

 

How did that one go..?

I only saw Jones in the second half of the season and he looked like the only player not afraid to shoot.

To me he just looked like he had lost interest in playing for us - a shadow of the player he could be...

I thought that as the well... perhaps it was because he was in a different position every week. .. he should be a decent player in league two though

Jones formed a good CM partnership at the beginning with Kelly in a 442 formation with Forte on the left and (dare I say it) Winchester on the right. When Forte got injured was the tipping point when Johnson started pillocking around with the formation and going with a midfield diamond, shoving Jones out to the left instead of playing someone else in that left wing spot and maintaining that 442. And as NewBlue said, Sheridan brought in Palmer to form a CM partnership with Kelly.

I thought Jones and Kelly played better when we reverted to a diamond shape with Kelly playing as the holding, Jones and Winchester central with Philly at the top. We played our best football under LJ with this formation until teams started to expose us out wide.

. Have to agree with all this. He was benched a few times last season also.
