What about if we brought one in by Saturday, then Hyde’s injury is sorted in a couple of weeks, and Murphy & Cardwell come back quicker. This loan signing could then be fourth or even fifth choice behind those and Wreh, but has to play a certain percentage of matches.

What if Murphy returns with goals in his first 5/6 matches, but then has to be dropped to the bench to accommodate this loan signing we brought in because we were between a rock and a hard place at that moment in time.
Play him at left wing back in place of Clifford? What could go wrong 🤣

Watching Cook give a number 9 masterclass for Bradford against Hull. Bullet header for his first. Can't beat a good cross and a header.

Boy do we need a player like that!

Been impressed with a certain Scott Banks for Bradford as well.. I’m assuming that’s the one who scored a couple against us for palace couple weeks ago?

Back on topic though, it’s Wednesday tomorrow and still we haven’t had any need regarding new faces ahead of the weekend. Surely we aren’t going in to that game with just Chris Wreh as our only striker option?

You can bet your bottom dollar we will be going into the weekend with only Wreh! Stick Hobsoninio up top along side as an old fashioned centre forward, big unit and after seeing his strike v Forest Green could certainly strike a ball. We definitely need two up top

That was Nathan Ferguson. Hobson could only dream of scoring a goal like that. And so could I.

….What if? What if?… the frivolity of this post pretty much sums up the tumultuous position the club is in.

So you’d be happy to bring someone in, who had to play a percentage of matches, regardless of their ability, their form, how they fit into the system, so they adapt the non-league football?

Okay.

Powell is Marmite.

For my eyes though, he's super frustrating to watch. He has 2 moves. The Stepover and the cut inside. Cant fault is effort, but he doesn't look up. End product reminds me of early JCR.
Then let's hope that we're seeing 'early Powell '.

If indeed we are, enjoy him while you can because he won't be with us for long.
