Strange comment about Bassett (who did look energetic when I saw him). He only played 8 games (2 as sub).

Just realised there was no Osborne last night again (he seems to come and go).

Also - the return loan lad…. The striker.

Baker also conspicuous by his absence.

Not sure now would be right time for him or Telford.

I would not rule out him being loaned out to a club at a level down....... only to never be heard from at the Boro' again

None of these signing have played regular if not all for their previous clubs. Its basically throwing a net out and see who we catch. There seems to be no plan about making signing. Typical poor management again

There are complaints that what we have is not good enough,manager makes new signings and there are complaints again.
Let's see what is produced in the pitch first before calling it poor management again.
That's how I judge it.

A poor imitation.

I would normally 100% agree Lets wait and see, but how many players has JG brought in that have not been good enough.

With exception of Dwyer. he has failed to attract any player from this (or level above) who was performing for the team.

We do have horrendous turnover of players though, 40 this season.

40 is ridiculous given we’re not even half way through a season…

JG can’t keep blaming the players, recruitment is ultimately under his remit.

if that is correct to date how many more can we expect ?????
it does not make for good reading with regards to management decisions.
however if he the manager done nothing to try and improve matters
would he not be getting slated even more for not acting. so take your pick.

Jimmy has now a reputation with all this coming and going. This doesn't bode well on player signings either now or the future .

At this point in the season, it's unlikely that were going to attract any other type of player.

Across lots of teams at this level, there is a huge turnover of players, which is not good as a fan/spectator at all. But I guess needs must at the minute.

Not a keeper, but Tamworth have signed striker Matt Stenson on loan from Halifax.

That’s the calibre we should be targeting imo.

We haven't signed any Huddersfield senior players though, have we?

Huddersfield Under 18s/23s are not higher than Halifax really.

A proven Conference North/National striker, who's on his way back to fitness, in his prime years, who appears to have hit the ground running, is the type of player that would really benefit us.

A National League centre back, who can play at right back or centre mid, aged 23, gone to Redditch on loan.

Local-ish lad, came through Walsall academy, so no further to Nuneaton than to Redditch really.

A centre back of that ilk/age could be what we need in our aging defence. 23 is a good age for a footballer. Not too young, not past it.

It's just about a certainty that Breddon will return as first choice once fully fit so i'd guess it's going to be difficult t to attract in a top SL standard keeper who knows he's only a stop gap .
My first impression of Foster . He pulled of two very good saves in the first half and is certainly a good size . He did look a bit shaky on some of the basics but that could just be first game nerves and it couldn't have been easy as a keeper in those conditions .

I can remember when James Balshaw was our back up keeper . Like i say i'd guess he's only a stop gap so it was always going to be a keeper who wasn't already first choice at this level . We could have gone for a young loanee i suppose but that would be no point if Breddon is only going to be out for a week or two .

I count this level as one up and one down as it's the same pool of players .
I'm not saying he is what i'm saying is he's probably what were going to get in the circumstances . I'd be interested to know who you think we should have signed in the circumstances .
