What he lacks in skill he makes up for in passion.

Probably his level at best.

We've signed Newcastle strike Tom Heardman on loan. Played in the friendly vs Sunderland and looked pretty poor tbh. Other than that I know next to nothing about him apart from him looking like a right unit and someone who looked more like a target man rather than a poacher. Can any of our resident Geordies shed some light on him and give me a bit more insight?
http://666kb.com/i/dgwmh8dnsj5h3h2ww.jpg
I saw him play once for the reserves and thought he looked hopeless.

Not looking too promising then this one Gfnx

(You can remind me of this post when he scores against Rovers this season)

Wouldn't be so sure about him featuring for too much tbh, mate. Our striker situation is shaping up a little bit like this:

James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford are here. No way Heardman is going to get past those two at all. Plus, we have a young lad from our own academy called George Miller who had a decent enough goal return for a 19-year old. Now here's the thing: we keep on getting bids for Vaughan in (as you'd expect) and his contract is up at the end of the season. Some S*n reporter claimed he's going to Sunderland but we have had 159 of those rumours already going round so might mean feck all. George Miller is apparently close to joining Middlesboro. HITC reported that we're selling him for 200k which is absolute dog bollocks. In any case, we would be in the market for a new striker if any of those sceanarios happen.

Bottom line: 0-0 draw at Ewood it is

James Vaughan player for Everton - it's inevitable he'll go to Sunderland

Reports flying around that he's having a medical at Sunderland now, as he turned down a new contract here. 900k the fee rumoured, so yeah really no choice but to let him go. As for Miller, he's going to Boro. Fee has been accepted, which will be lower than Vaughan's but apparently could rise over the million mark with add-ons and so on. Can't begrudge both of them for leaving but it leaves us with serious work to do. Clark's been saying there were plans in store if Vaughan was to leave, so got to see what happens now

You'll probably buy some more of our players, @gfnx25 . We released Jack Redshaw.

Signing Lee Novak apparently. Gigg Lane really is turning into a retirement home for our 2012 promotion side - and they'll probably turn us over on Sunday

Wouldn't mind some Jordan Rhodes or Scott Arfield for that matter. And did I already mention we had Oscar Gobern on trial a few weeks ago?

Novak would be a strange one. But again, I've been sceptical of the Leon Clarke and James Vaughan transfers too at the time of happening. I just cannot see us really spending big bucks for a striker now that we've had great success with signing struggling stirkers for nowt and sell them for big money. In an ideal world, I'd like us to go for someone like Godden form Stevenage, Akinde from Barnet or Watkins from Exeter but that won't happen. I expect us to sign someone like Novak and possibly come back for Oztumer from Walsall who we've been interested in earlier this season.

Are you coming down to the Stade du Gigg on Sunday? Should be a decent game this

Oscar Gobern! Blast from the past. Last spotted getting released to QPR for a year before doing his ACL on loan at Chesterfield.

Novak would be a good one for you. Only really stalled properly last season - proven League One pedigree, bangs in 15 goals a season, still only 28 (I think - may be a year out either way). Ollie Watkins will end up either top end Championship or bottom end Premier League if he moves this summer, from what I've heard of the lad. Only seen him in the League Two play-off final, so this might be overstating his potential.

I'm considering it, but very much depends if I can be arsed. Pre-season friendlies aren't really my thing unless I really do have nothing better to do and we're playing someone we're unlikely to be playing in the near future. I toyed with Accrington the other night but left it a bit late to set off for a 7 o'clock kick off, and I've done Barnsley too many times to be interested in going there. We also have three friendlies in Germany and Austria which are a bit far to watch a casual fitness exercise, plus a home friendly with Udinese, which is on at a daft time but I'll probably go because we're unlikely to face them again this decade.
Plot Twist: Our replacements for the departed James Vaughan and George Miller have been unveiled. Literally the day JV left, we announced that Nicky Ajose would be rejoining from Charlton on loan for the rest of the season. Nicky was here when we got promoted to League One back in 2011 and I loved him back then. Seems to have been moved around quite a bit the last couple of season but did terrific at Swindon, enough to persuade Charlton to pay 800k for him. We were told yesterday by our local journo that another striker was coming in for a medical. This striker turned out to be Chris Maguire. Scored 13 and assisted 10 for Ooxford last season. More of a wide player, number 10 type than an out and out striker but very happy with that! Bags of expereince at a decent level, can hit a decent free kick too, in fact scored two at our place last season.

Some of our fans seem to be mildly disappointed with them though, saying that none of them could replace Vaughan. Spoiled brats. We were never in a position to replace Vaughan 1 by 1 and tbh getting 1 Mil for Vaughan and 500kish for Miller and signing Ajose plus Maguire for literally fekk all, who the fekk is disappointed about that? We had striker like Lateef Elford-Alliyu, Troy Hewitt and Shaun Harrad playing for us in L1 not even half a decade ago. Given some of the players we were linked with (Novak, Blackstock, Leon Best) we could have done a lot lot worse than that

Have to agree with you, they seem like decent signings. Bury have come a long way in my opinion.

We've just sold Brad Potts to Barnsley for a fee believed to be £750k. League 2 was his level. Was awful when we bought him in League 1 and is more concerned with his hair than winning the ball back. If they can afford to carry him then he may do alright, not expecting him to start many games though tbh!

We've just gone on and signed Harry Bunn on a three-year deal from Huddersfield. My dick is now genuinely erect. Thoughts? @terriersmad
http://666kb.com/i/dgwmh8dnsj5h3h2ww.jpg
Far, far too good for League One. He was a productive winger in the Championship, 17 goals and 20-odd assists in 98 games for us - mostly in a struggling side. Never really in the reckoning last season - VLP and Kachunga were just too consistent and too good for him to get in the side, but I'm amazed he's gone to League One. Ipswich were supposedly in for him, and Leeds were rumoured to be interested earlier in the window. Barnsley were another linked club.

As wingers go, not the quickest, but physically strong, decent touch (even if his first touch occasionally leads to a second touch that is a tackle), prepared to take people on (by running at them - quite literally barrels through challenges, no real trickery in his wing-play until it comes to stealing a yard), good crosser, good finisher. Obviously no guarantees with any player, but at 24 and for the price you paid, you could make your money back 4-5 times in a year if he shows his quality.
Been watching the opening game of the National League season as there's not much else on TV and Sutton United have fairly bossed Leyton Orient throughout, think they could be in for a half decent season based on this performance.
I'd 8-2 be us. Good Lord this is going to be a long season.

Ipswich apparently had 500k rejected, so we must have paid more than that. Would quite literally blow away anything we've ever paid before. Our record signing was Chris Swailes from Ipswich, for whom we paid 200k for. And THAT was a mere 20 years ago Got Manchester roots the lad so that must have been a factor aswell


As for our game today, still work in progress but a 1-0 win. Automatisms still to be found and still tweaks to be made. Gave 8 debut starts to players today, so not everythnig clicking straightaway. I personally would like to see Beckford play alongside Maguire, as he seems to be more equipped to play in a number 10 sort of role rather than Nicky Ajose. Jermaine Beckford scored with a header, after missing a penalty early on. Second half we looked much better. Zeli Ismail and Tsun Dai came on, and everything seemd to be more fluid. Could have put the game to bed, but decided to miss yet another penalty taken by Chris Maguire. Defence looked good, and I believe with a few more games under our belt, we will start ticking at some point.

Oh, and just to put this out here: Tsun Dai - remember the name. This guy will be the next guy leaving us for better things and put big bucks in our account. 17-year-old Centre Mid from Hong Kong in his first year as a pro and looks like he's been playing for ages. Such a natural on the ball, bosses the midfield so well. A Joy to watch

Got excited when I saw we went one up, thought it could all be different this season! What a joke. You can't lose the opening day of the season 8-2!!!

At one point yesterday we were bottom of League One. We've never been below the third tier so that's officially the lowest we've ever been! Cheers Venky's.

Really poor result yesterday and we'll have to improve quickly, starting with Doncaster at home on Saturday.

Another highly entertaining and thrilling encounter at La Stade de Gigg ends with yet ANOTHER loss. This time 2-3 against Brizzle Rovers Gas Franchise, who were absolutely pants before this game so probably a banker that they would be beating us.

YAY

Your 2 goals came in injury time too, no?

Speaking of goal fests, our games at the keepmoat always are and yesterday was no different. It finished 3-3, even though Donny only had 2 shots on target! Allsop, on loan from Bournemouth, put in another sub par performance in our net and Bowyer keeps playing negatively away from home. It's a game we should have won.

Rumours are we didn't play young Bright as he may be off to Brighton!

More or less, Beckford's goal might have been about a minute from stoppage time, but that's just splitting hairs tbh. Clark correctly pointed out that both our goal just paper the crack and that the game was just very crap

Not that I needed any further deterrent, but remind me not to visit Stevenage FC with the missus!

Don't think Grimsby fans enjoyed it.

I went to Stevenage last season and it was the worst 22 quid I'd spent all season. Result didn't help but the stewarding was a joke then too. Didn't go last Saturday because of that and thankfully I didn't.

Some shocking goings on there, and our Trust will be taking it all the way. Stevenage statement last night was a joke.

Ryan Mason seeks third opinion on coming back to play football after skull fracture.

I'm kind of torn about this. Obviously if this third doctor says he shouldn't, then it's a no-brainer. However, if the doctor says he can go back to playing football professionally...would it be something you would be comfortable with if it was you? One doctor suggesting it would not be safe for me to play football would be enough to make me throw in my boots I reckon, even if two others said it'd be alright. I don't know the ins and outs of it, so maybe something like a skull cap rugby and Cech style may prove the difference in which case fair enough. Feel sorry for the guy though, don't think he really has had a proper run at a career as a footballer. Spurs shipped him out here, there and everywhere and just as it was picking up at Hull for him he suffered this injury...

I'm sure if he did chose to retire from football the FA would fast track his coaching and Hull or Spurs would bring him in as a youth coach or something to get him on his feet!

If I was him, I'd call it a day. Not just because doctors said I couldn't but also because I would want to be at my 100% best if I was to return. I'm not a psychologist by any means, but surely if you had such a massive injury to your head, it must somewhere in your mind right? Just imagine this: 90th minute in a Championship match against physical side, you are defending a 1-0 lead and you're facing a 1 vs 1 aerial duel against someone. Would you put your body 100% on the line to win the header? Are you willing to risk it? Can you be 100% focused and commited to football knowing that one header might fuck you and after everything you've been through? The Petr Cech comparison doesn't quite cut it for me, because as a keeper you don't have to use your head, whereas it is a necessary to do that in an outfield position. Massive decision for Ryan Mason that is for sure. I wish him all the best in whatever decision he chooses to make but if I was him, I'd be sensible and stop.
