    We appear to be doing absolutely nothing in the transfer market which is a little frustrating. You would like to think we have a decent squad but we could do with a couple of defenders and another striker.

    Up until last season he's always played in midfield where he's a superb little player with a lot of heart which is why i think he's wasted in defence.

    Definitely a chance we could be swapping long term mid-table Championship mediocrity for long term mid-table League One mediocrity. Just seems bizarre that we’re not doing everything we can to get back up this season, surely they realise that the longer we stay down the harder it gets. Or maybe Evans thinks we’re strong enough already? Doesn’t appear that Lambert shares that view however.

    Maybe a loan or two will arrive, who knows. Full backs, centre half, left wing, striker, there’s lots that could be improved.

    You have £1.5 million as part of the Mings sell on clause , if I was a Tractor Boy I'd be pi**ed off if most of that wasn't spent on at least a couple of new additions .

    Also 800k from Matt Clarke’s move to Brighton. If Webster leave Bristol City then that’ll be another chunk. None will go on new players, never does*. All goes down the black hole limiting our losses. Fair enough but could be seen as short sighted given the drop in income in this league. Mind you wages are cheaper so maybe it doesn’t make much odds to Evans.

    *Although to be fair he let Hurst spend 3(?) million last season replacing those who had left and got nothing in return. When you see the difference in how clubs such as yourselves operate in the transfer market, that’s what really frustrates a lot of people. We really need someone who knows what they are doing.

    Good luck to him. A very poor David Moyes signing but I think he could carve out a decent career in League One or Two. He’s made with the money we paid him, which was £15k + a week in the Prem apparently.

    We are also due to sign highly rated defender Jordan Willis on a free transfer after he rejected an extension with Coventry apparently. Rumours are he has Championship attention too but we could announce him today or tomorrow.

    Anthony Grant is now training with the Youth team after a supposed ‘dental operation’ as supporters have questioned where he’s been the last couple of weeks after he wasn’t seen in any pre-season photos.

    Rumour has it he signed with another club unaware that his contract was extended for another year after making the required amount of appearances. Now said club don’t want to pay the asking price for him.

    Had a good season for us but it’s quite clear his Shrewsbury Town career is over, just hope he moves on by the end of the transfer window, we can’t pay his wages training with the youth team all season and certainly don’t want to pay him off so if anybody can take him off our hands it’ll be great.

    Don’t know anything about the bloke but sounds a good fit in terms of position for what we need.

    Bang average during his spell here, seemed to do well at Bury but I'd say League 2 is his level....

    He’ll only be 4th choice CB anyway so I’d be happy with that, seems a good age too

    He’ll be an excellent League One signing. You’re going for it this summer.
