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.


Sheridan was reluctant to use him infact he said he could leave in January...Pressley brought him back in can see him going tho

Surprised to see Arthur Ghanoua has been training at CU this week.....must have been a lonely experience.

Once again we seem to be going for a small squad who can play multiple positions: If the player we offered contracts too reject the deals
I can see us signing 1 more defender a right footed centre half, as Braithwait will probably be the the back up right sided defender.
3 centre mid players, one of which can play multiple positions (i.e right back , right midfield )
2 wingers , (1 of which is a striker come winger
And two strikers
That would give us a squad of around 19 players (including the First /second year pros ) which is what Holdsworth said the squad size would be .

I've heard we are interested in Raith Rovers forward Kevin Nisbet.

I've seen him a couple of times on Alba recently and he looks a bit raw but 34 goals in 45 games in all comps this season is not too shabby.

Edited to say he's contracted til 2020 so that seems unlikely.

Correct, series of trial games on the Training Pitch each morning.

As said, mixtures of trialists and young players to make the numbers. I saw that Park View lot mention some GK’s had been over so they must have provided for that position...

Trials can work. In the early Knighton days we used host trials off season, we had a certsin Simon Davey in those. We signed him and was a great player and we made 100k from him.

Seem to remember a few posts last year setting the same prediction for seasonal performance before a ball is kicked and players have enlisted for a season.

Holdsworth is probably waiting until half an hour before the transfer deadline to make a bid and say “we tried”. Again.

We did well to get 40k and a sell on clause with Cosgrove , he was set to sign a pre contract agreement for the next season with them, we did waste the 40k though.

Might be like those penniless punters on Ebay who like to bid £2000 for a Rolex knowing it will sell for £5000. I do think it makes good business sense to try and buy him even if we have to pay £100k upwards. I don't understand why Rotherham would let him go when he could be worth much more in the future.

Rotherham fan at work says Yates wasn't suited to their style of play last season and didn't impress for them when he got a chance to play. Don't think they're too fussed about keeping him.

You're likely correct.

As Yates is likely going to Swindon we've probably made a bid around that amount, which Rotherham won't likely accept, to stop Holdsworth/owners getting stick for not trying etc. If we get him for that amount then great/bonus if we don't then we tried.

I've heard though that Rotherham only want to send him out on loan - so will see.

At least we’re not Stockport

You're possibly right, but we apparently paid 50k for Richie Bennett so I guess it wouldn't be out of this world to pay the same for Yates.

It would be interesting to hear the new revised figure for Yates as it would be telling as to whether Holdsworth is earning his corn.

Say for example last season when we flogged promotion that we offered a last gasp 50k for Yates and not the 75k that they were more looking for, if he now costs 100k then we are losing money.

They wont reveal any figures at Carlisle United and disclose things because fingers will get pointed at them because of their incompetence.

You never know, Holdsworth loves to blow his own trumpet so we might have got him half price.

If we don't hear anything then basically we paid more than we last offered.

Talk about revolution not evolution.
What a turnover of players this is going to be. Really ripping it all up.
It's not beyond the realms of possibility that we could start our 1st game of the season with only Collin left from the last game of this season.
I wonder if any team has ever started the 1st game of a new season with a completely different set of outfield 10 players?

Us and Swindon are going through major cost-cutting exercises. Rotherham have been relegated and presumably need to get the wage bill down. Why are we offering a fee? He could hardly get a kick at Rotherham last season. Decent sell on clause and no wage contribution should be all Rotherham want. If they thought he was half decent they would keep him and play him, they are only in L1.
