Could be as I'm sure it would of been Garry Johnson that signed him for Cheltenham, we should of been straight in for him as soon as he was available.

It is getting pretty depressing us missing out on all these potential targets. Feel like we are going to get stuck with duds again

Duku was ok for me, not a first choice player and wouldn’t have pushed the boat out for him.

And like others have said, i don’t expect Edwards to be here at start of next season.

All well and good getting rid of players. But we seemingly haven’t replaced them. Plenty of time but potential targets seem to be decreasing by the day

He was Southern based , so unlikely to move North.

Not bad partnered with Rodney but offered little else and only looked comfortable when heading towards goal, not really the all singing forward that we require

Southwell isn't a problem. Edwards is. 

Southwell was utilesed incorrectly all season 

Southwell wont get us towards the playoffs, a rodney type player would

Always felt much of our attacking problem was lack of play maker in mid field, correct that and our forwards who ever they are stand a chance

Surely the likes of Duku and Stead as main examples. I'm certain we will have gone in for other players that have signed elsewhere too

Stead ...really ? 

A journey man at the end of his career and probably on silly money 

we had too many of those in the past 

woukd rather have a young guy who has sell on potential 

and Duku yes he was ok but it was Hardy and king in midfield and Rodney upfront making the difference

I'll give you that one with Stead. Probably past his best and must be on big money with Harrogate.

Completely agree with the highlighted point but most of these players get snapped up by premier league or football league clubs when they sniff the slightest bit of potential.

Do you honestly think Hardy and Rodney will come cheap?

No I don’t 

hardy ..sure his agent is shopping him around.. even if we offered a good deal then they would still shop around 

they would be trying to get the best price.. no quick deals there 

Rodney under contract, so that give Salford control and they are certainly likely to want to keep him. 

options is pay a fee and then a good wage 

Or do a loan deal.. Salford would then try To extend his contract and use us to develop him or shop window him 

either way it would take some clever dealing to get him here... but a pre season friendly days we have good relations with them 

hoping it works
