    Sharp Shooter, yes qw have dropped into non-league thanks to the efforts of Swann, but the reason that there is no talk of signing centre forwards is thet, it is certainly a new league, but we have played without forwards for 4 years, so there is no need to change the system as well as leagues, Scunny are very experienced at playing the 4-5-1 style, this is now deep rooted into the club, and will only change when Swann gains his liquidation of SUFC, he will then get the money he wasted back after he transferred the club ground, training pitch and other club owned land to his own company. I still wonder how he got away with such a move, but sadly there has never been any fight put up by anyone.

    Colin Daniel covers a multitude of positions on the pitch. This is the kind of versatility we really do need. As he can play comfortably up front there now remains one mega question.
    Where is the 20 goal a season striker we shall so desperately need to make an impact?
    I’d very happily take someone who can score 15 – but will settle for 12 at this point, as I feel we could consolidate a lower mid-table slot. Offer me that and I’d snatch your hands off.
    As long as there are never more than three or four bodies in the treatment room at the same time – I am not too unhappy about the squad. There is evidence of balance.
    (That opinion would rather depend on Butterfield being fit enough to sign, of course.)

    I do feel that there is now the possibility, at least, that the misery of recent seasons will not be repeated.

    The only problem with that is every other professional football club in the world wants forward players with pace, experience and a decent goal return, its not like they are ten a penny.

    I see Josh Morris is reunited with Alexander and KvV at Motherwell.

    Funny how some players follow their former manager around, eh Keith?

    Daniel is a forward thinking player he can play left wing or even upfront!

    Think its more to do with the matchday bonus of a tin of shortbread and a fresh haggis if you score that swayed the deal.

    Great. We used to play Pugh at RB when he was here to cover that position, wasn’t really ideal..was it ?

    We need 2 strikers with doubt. Fair enough Daniel can play there but come on…we need strikers !

    I obviously can’t disagree. We need Nuttall to be forced to play for his place.

    Never a good idea going into the season with just 1 player in any given position.

    How are they going to ever produce their best knowing they’re an automatic pick game in game out ?

    Just cos we’ve got one striker doesn’t make him an automatic pick. We’ve started with Beestin up on his own before now.
    I’d say it’s Guardiola style but it’s not quite having the same effect.

    Looked terribly too. I really do hope Hill drafts in a few strikers.

    I reckon there’d be a fair bit of grumbling here if we’d signed Clayton Donaldson tbh.

    Who may have played more minutes for us this season, Hallam or 38yr old Clayton Donaldson ?

    I’d probably say Donaldson.

    You would have thought matt would have heard something if we were after strikers so maybe Hill is thinking of packing us with Midfielders again. I hope that’s not the case though.

    Even if we play with 1 up top we still need at least 2 strikers, surely ? lol

    I suspect the reason Keef hasn’t tried to get him on a one year deal is that he has a mid 20s goal machine lined up that we’re offering a 3 year contract to.

    Left backs are cheap.

    Workhorse central midfielders looking for one last deal are cheap.

    Young goalkeepers looking for a few games are cheap.

    Strikers who can bag you 20 a season are not cheap and are at a premium.

    That’s the reason we haven’t signed any. We’re cheap.

    So Hill will be able to populate the squad to an extent but then we’ll be scavenging for the scraps in terms of strikers.

    Cue the late arrival of a couple of 18 or 19 year old strikers released from league clubs ‘hungry for an opportunity’ or a journeyman with nowhere else left to go.

    We all know that but why not even get any on trial ?. All a little old.
