Let's wait and see what he gets offered elsewhere. The club that was after him at Christmas was Swindon, they are cutting their wage bill like us. He might not get a better offer than here

Reluctant nicko on twitter ( usually reliable ) says that Hibs have offered him a longer contract.

Surely he'll get offers from league one clubs? There's plenty in the manchester area where he lives and other places an hour away compared to a two hour + drive to carlisle.

All it needs is a 2 year contact to beat whatever peanuts we offered him - If I was in his position I wouldn't even consider it.

Zac Rudden of Rangers and Scott Wright of Aberdeen are both looking for loans at above Scottish Championship level so probably best to avoid them, so we can play the secret Santa system

Do you think it would be that big a loss? When we are going forward he is very good but he isn't quick, he can't tackle and when things don't go his way he loses discipline. He has only become a favourite in the past season. If he is going to be very expensive I would let him go.

You're certainly right there Walt, my only comment would be that there seem to be a lot of clubs that are looking to make big cuts in wages. If Devitt is looking for a big wedge we might be able to get a couple of players in for him and that would make the team overall stronger. Tidser (Morton) in midfield, Hodson (Rangers) at right-back would possibly give us more over 46 games than JD

We need another defender, couple of midielders, another winger and two centre forwards at least.

If we could get Yates and Nadesan that would be a good start.

Cannae say I'm the biggest fan of Elvis but these 3 signings look like they were planned so hopefully they have done their homework and the players will come good. If they have been watching these 3 then you think any loans will be thought out as well. Fingers crossed, he shivers remembered Cole Stockton

Not on twatter but has his reply been deleted?

If we can't compete with Grimsby we are in trouble. Is it possible they have been offered less than what they were on?

Devitt not getting more than 1 year is a disgrace if 'we were planning to build the team around him'.

One contracts means if they are any good they will either be sold in January or let go for nothing next summer. We just seem to be a feeder team team now.

Think they are gambling on the average home support remaining around 4,200 - 4,700 but if we are not challenging for the playoffs this could be a major slump.

I seem to remember Jones started at the club on very good money so his new offer may have come as a big shock. Pressley was also reluctant to use him last season so obviously Jones will want a move away.
Parkes had a good season and was head and shoulders above most of the team in height alone. Hopefully we can offer him a bit more to keep him.

I agree, if Jones has been offered a big cut in salary he is probably thinking a drop into the conference closer to home is worth it. Parkes will be a big loss, his ability to bring the ball out of defence is very useful.
Scougal hasn't done much, I would have let him go anyway.
If Pressley is looking for quick, cheap players up front to fit his system he could do a lot worse than bring Shaun Miller back. He would fit well to fast counter attacking

It’s no surprise. We’re obviously offering absolute peanuts and short term contracts.

All apart from Devitt are easily replaceable though. Big rebuild job ahead.

There are easily replaceable, even Devitt - the problem is we're replacing them with untried Scottish championship players and conference kids.

The team will be full of cheap permanents and any quality will come in loans.

At least we’re not Stockport

I hope Parkes resigns. None of those newly signed have played at this level before and Gillesphey has played but not very well. Gary Miller wasn't the greatest player ever, and he won't cross the half-way line, but he was a good enough 4th division defender, and he can cover all the positions across the back 4. I hope Pressley isn't going to take a Cullen risk on the full backs and have one completely fail or get injured. We may yet rue the loss of Gazza, lets hope Pressley gets some cover signed, he does have time after all
