Seems very quiet at Brunton Park regarding contract offers. A lot of deals expiring in a couple of months, including some players who I’d like to see us keep, particularly if we aren’t going up.

For me, we need to keep the following (in no particular order):

Guy
Armer
Mellish
Riley
Zanzala
Charters
Hayden
Bennett

A few of these players suffered major dips in form after the layoff, but all have shown more than enough to suggest they can play major roles in a successful league 2 season.

I’d also keep Patrick, Anderton, and Toure if the deals were right, and there are several others who I’ve not seen enough of to form any opinion.

I’m sure others will differ in their assessments, but I’d be interested to see how folk view this!

Did not listen to the commentary. I heard Lumsdon got stuck in today... Anyone know what was said or what he advised.


Don’t know if Sounds works for you being in N.America Marden but heres the link:

The released list was announced on the 15th of May last season, and on the 6th the season before. I presume we can expect the list quite soon, though I can't see there being very much on it.

Can't someone just post what Lummy said on here. Would be an interesting read.

He basically said that the club should just say if the budget is set to finish fourth bottom, or tenth and then we would all know, and that budgets were not an excuse. Simmo etc never mentioned budgets. Said if club came out with truth (about budget just to survive for a year because of covid), supporters would get behind them.
Strangely, one of the few weeks Beech never referred to "Chris will know"

That was the worst ninety minutes of commentary i`ve heard in a long time.
they`ll both be well paid to do a professional job but neither sounded as if they wanted to be there.

JP should just sod off back to Derby if he`s bored with watching Carlisle.

If you take Beech's comments at face value (he wants to keep 99% of the existing squad), we should get one new player over the next five years (to get to 100 players).
Joking aside, these comments worry me, as it means he is planning on the same players and style as last year, and has learned nothing.
Unless the replacements for Kayode and the Preston lad are playmakers/target men, he has basically learned none of the lessons needed from last year.

Someone experienced and influential in middle of park is probably where we could improve Furman hardly played and he was our most experienced player
Zanzala is looking an improvement on what we started last season with goals potential wise if he stays
Another striker will be needed and a lot will hinge on what standard of player we can find

Hopefully we can keep the players we need too

There'll be loads of players available and if we're in better nick than most due to transfer money we should be able to pick and choose to some extent. This is where Beech / Holdsworth need to earn their corn - too many Max Hunts / Mo Sagaf 'for the future' types (i.e. not being played) getting bought and then pinged 6 months / a year later in a lucky dip fashion. We need some players for the here and now too!

Will Aimson released by Plymouth. Always played in the north before his move there from Bury.

Would be a solid signing at L2 level if we can’t keep Bennett.

I hope we don’t miss out on early negotiations of some released players waiting for the maybes in our squad to decide..

Only 5'10 though, but can cover centre back and right back which would be quite useful. Hayden is quite dominant in the air so could be a decent pairing, would probably suit a back three.

Players should be given a deadline when given an offer.

Trying to get a pay rise? Or just wanting away?

Doesn’t sound like he’s been offered a contract unless it’s been a derisory one.

Probably both, he was initially brought in as No2 to Norman and will revert to that barring injuries. If he wants away fine, use the money saved on an experienced midfielder to do some of Guys graft, and set pieces. Young Breeze can cover from the bench or we could loan cover in if more experience is required. Dewhurst seemed to enjoy his time here.
