He signed a two year contract in June so it would seem an unlikely signing.

Unless we pay him more in 12 months than they do in 18.

But really, no January moves will be on 12 month deals. They’ll likely be 6 months or 18 months.

We do need a left back to be fair. Maybe just maybe we might actually pay a fee

Unless it is a swap deal perhaps.

Maybe Holdsworth was unaware of his current contract situation, it wouldn't amaze me.

As Beech has an 18 month contract, we will probably offer 18 months to players. They only offered 12 months in the summer to match Pressley’s contract length, a good thing with the quality of most of his signings.

Could be a strong player in a weak team.

Parkes played in our abysmal defence for 2 years but now plays every week for Exeter.

The signing who’s been training with us is a loan player.

He’ll sign on 1st January but won’t be involved against Crewe as players have to be registered 24hours before a match.

Stephen Walker is only 19 not sure that’s what we need right now, could do with a striker with a bit of experience who knows where the back of the net is, most young strikers lack the ability to read a game and be in the right place at the right time as proven by Loft, it’s a learning curve that they pick up if they are any good but only experience can teach them.

Unfortunately we are going to find it really hard to attract an experienced forward who knows we're the net is to a club 6th bottom of league 2 when almost every club in the land is looking for the same but yeah it would be grand if he could find one,be at least 2 forwards coming in I would think get the feeling he doesn't fancy Olomola judging by team selection anyways,

Stephen Walker seems to be highly rated by Boro, He was given a new 4 1/2 yr contract in January.
He`s played for England at under 17 18 and 19 level.....Scored 6 goals for the u19s in 9 appearances.
Including 3 against Macedonia in a Euro Qualifier in October.

Got to be worth the risk if we could get him on loan.

I saw the YouTube interview he did after Bradford and never heard him mention Olomola and since Beech has been here he started him in his first game v Forest Green and hasn't started him since

Was thinking he might look to fill his place in squad with someone he would start games but are we committed to a season long loan I know scummy have recall option?

Tyrone O’Neil is another possibility. His loan at Darlington finishes soon. He’s scored 4 in 14

Sorensen was a risk that didn`t work out,........But signing anyone especially in January either on loan or free transfer is always going to be a risk.
It`s down to the Manager / Coach to do his homework and back his judgement.

It is all speculative, Kev Gray voted Huddersfied's worst player, Shaun Miller bit of a let down, Clint Hill, despite the doubters was class.

Those of us old enough will remember Kenny Wilson.

Having said that a good scout like John Carruthers is invaluable, although he probably recommended some duffers as well, in his time.

Simple answer to that conundrum is who pays the most. All that interests most modern players! They don’t care where in the League a team is if they’re offering the best deal.

Sadly in our times of austerity it’s highly unlikely we’d offer silly money to a goalscoring striker!

There must be a couple of gems hidden in non-league, surely they are a better gamble than spoilt academy brats.

Wee Mo Sagaf has shown bags more potential than Sorenson every did.

I would prefer an experienced Proven striker aged 25+ in an ideal world.

But I’ve no problem with signing another young loan. Just because Sorensen was shit doesn’t mean every 19yo loanee will be. The next one might actually have a decent attitude.

Tom Lawrence was 18
Calum O’Hare was 20
Joe Garner was 18
Ben Marshall was 18

Those are 4 I’ve plucked off the top of my head but there probably more examples of young loans we’ve had that haven’t been Elias Sorensen.

There’s nothing like building for next season. After yesterday’s performance with the squad we have and restrictions on what we can bring in, relegation has to be a serious threat, and still not a dickie bird about the rumoured take over of the running of the club.
Financial restrictions or not there should be money coming in and anyway relegation really would hit the club a lot harder than spending now to avoid it.

Not a lot of cash? I wonder if that’s his way of saying give some of the Branthwaite money to spend on the squad, or maybe he knows none of it will be reinvested in that side of things.

We’re already on 5 loans, so some will have to be recalled for any to be brought in, unless we want some sitting doing nothing every Saturday. Bit of a shambolic situation, yet I see one of our relegation rivals being linked to Ross Wallace from Fleetwood.
