    Tyler Cordner, 21 yr old CB. Looks a unit and is described as a ball playing CB. Cox saw a lot of him in conference while he was at Ebbsfleet on loan from Bournemouth.

    First team manager Neil Cox regards the player very highly, having seen him play for Ebbsfleet while in the National League at Notts County last season and

    He said: “I saw a lot of him at Ebbsfleet last year and like what I see of him. He’s a big unit who can step out from the back, and is also very beneficial from set-plays. He’s a man mountain and wants to be a leader – that’s what I want from him, and then when he does go back to Bournemouth he’s ready for getting into their first team.

    “He was desperate to get down last week and get a game in earlier but we had to get everything signed off. I’m delighted to get him in the building.

    “He did really well last year, and defended his box really well. We’ll get some aggression into him. We want him to be dominant and using his presence and stature, while also showing how cultured he is on the ball.”

    Ah but its Neil Cox signing him. I don’t give a fig if I have seen him play or not. If Cox believes in him enough to give him a 12 month loan contract I will back him.

    Ebbsfleet? Didn’t someone say Godden didn’t work out here because he was homesick before he went back down that way?

    Perhaps Brianiron was being sarcastic about my sarcasm!

    I back all in an Iron shirt. Just curious as to how Bournemouth have suddenly become our go-to club for loans. What happened to Everton, Man City & Chelsea?

    And speaking of Chelsea, I see Ike Ugbo has wangled himself a European gap year!

    Looks a good signing. Solid at cb now hopefully doesn’t mean Cox sees McGahey as his RB when Clarke is out or that he sees Bedeau as his LB.

    Concerned that Mr Swann seemed to suggest that was it though.

    Fairly confident out wide and upfront but apart from the glaring hole at the back I still think we are one short in CM. Pugh or Hornshaw will have to step up hopefully at least one of them is ready.

    I’m surprised Hornshaw hasn’t had more of a look in anyway to be honest. I’m pretty sure he played against Notts County in a cup game, got MOM while looking a really handy player in the process and never saw anything from him again.

    In my opinion he’s good enough for league 2. Vincent is supposed to be talented. Hallam is definitely good enough, whether he can keep himself fit. Beestin will be good enough.

    Spence will be good enough. Pugh not too sure about, not really seen much of him. We have Rayyner Silva who’s supposed to have impressed so far during pre season, they think very highly of him down at GP.

    I think we’ll be ok in CM personally but it’s right back which bothers me. Jai Rowe looks a good player but if Clarke is injured, that means McGahey will get pushed out there as needed for back up. No doubt he’ll be steady there but he doesn’t offer much going forward.

    Left hand side will be fine with O’Malley and Butroid. Butroid is plenty good enough and O’Malley is a good little player.

    I forgot about Charlie Barks as well, he’s another highly rated youngster. A really solid, young CB who scored v’s Donny.

    Apart from RB and Gk, I’m fairly happy. It will be a rough bumpy season at times with the youngsters but I’ve been wanting the club to give youngsters a chance for a while now and never seemed to.

    It will be refreshing to see younger legs with energy and enthusiasm, rather then seeing older players plodding around to pick up a pay cheque at the end of the week.

    There will be a lot of if, but’s and maybe’s with all these younger players but I’m excited to see how they all do. This makes a refreshing change.

    Why worry about RB or LB, if the centre halves can work together 3 at the back is known to work well. I am sure that is part of Neil’s thinking and would make perfect sense – to me at least.

    The new signing has added some confidence to me just by saying he is vocal on the pitch. Gilks is probably the last player that was vocal and I can’t remember one before him. At least the keeper will know what is happening and if to come off his line or not. Even Mcardle with his experience was quiet. Another reason why Goode didn’t learn much here?

    Not ideal, looking towards a 21yo loanee to be your on the pitch leader.

    Swann as good as admitted yesterday that Clarke’s appearances would be limited, so it’s a big ask for these young guys to have to mature PDQ.

    That and the keeper situation are my only real concerns.

    Why are some so obsessed with the age of a player?
    Some of our younger signings have definitely had more of an impact than the so called ‘experienced’ ones recently.

    no disrespect to any of our new signings, but it’s the first we have signed 6 players and I have never heard of any of them before, going to be an interesting season.

    Cox has said on several occasions already that we will be playing 4/4/2. It’s the formation we’ve played in the friendlies so far.

    I’m not concerned with left back but right back could be a bit of a problem. I have faith in Jai Rowe though, he looks to have something. I just hope he stays fit for the most part.

    With smaller budgets and salary caps, you’re going to see the return of the utility player, anyone who can cover two or more positions is going to be much more attractive to clubs.

    For what it’s worth, I would have Clarke down as a centre back. For me, his best performances have come in the middle, particularly under Robins when he played in a back three. I’ve never been that excited by him as a full back.

    Nowt to do with chronological age is it?

    It’s to do with a mental strength that only comes with playing games at this level.

    I don’t have to remind you of the “legend” status Cliff Byrne & Andy Butler built up in their first spell with the club. However when they played together 2003/04 we almost went out of the football league. Crosby came in and the rest is history.

    Sure Pele won the World Cup at seventeen but he hadn’t just played a handful of games for Havant & Waterlooville!
