With me being not too familiar with past names,does anyone know the actual number of new players signed this season ? New meaning not having signed in a previous season.

63--13--12--38--73--117= 50*/189

Think it’s 6 totally new players, 3 others Beswick, Waite and Rowe -Turner are new signings for this season but have played for us previously, Charles, James played for us on loan last season and have now signed permanently.
Completely new players, Stenson, Cox, Lait, Mancinelli, Richards, Malandjou

Six it is then. Cheers for that.
With the previous not exactly covering themselves in glory,I had a concern that the majority of signings were returnees.

excluding Breeden
out of interest
how many of those do you expect to hold down a 1st team spot ( give or take )
bearing in mind performances post ADs appointment ?
if im honest surprised how many we have resigned
however as we all know the proof of the pudding will be in the eating
thats not necessarily a criticism more of an observation
cheers

excluding Breeden thats 50pc
suppose thinking about it
with the improved late form especially in defence
its somewhere near what to expect . . .
as it was at the offensive end we looked a tad short of ideas.
ps. has anyone heard anything on Benbow ( no worn out jokes please )

Have heard but this is only second hand that the club have had no contact with him from either side .
Really do think when fans are looking at last season we need to split it pre Ad & post or Christmas if you like . Pre that point we were awful , a complete shambles and i would hardly have kept a player . After that we were probably top 10 in terms of form and if your top ten you keep the best and try and improve where needed and hopefully thats what we've done .

Can't see that Rowe- Turner has signed not to play and with the two young full backs who are very much suited to the wing back roll i agree that we look set up to play five at the back . Having said that we have also signed a number of players who are clearly suited to playing more attacking wide , can't play a whole team of wide men .

whatever formation we try or plan to work to
we need creators and two to stick the ball in the old onion bag
thats if we're to make a challenge for the playoffs
otherwise it could be more of midfield obscurity

Scoring goals could still be our achilles heel . Even if Stenson does the business we still look a side without many goals in it .

do you think Benbow might return ?

being a fan not a professional
i thought we needed two strikers and two attacking midfielders
as the priorities, cant believe we have not identified these areas
maybe im missing something, maybe we have !!
suppose we will have to wait and see how it pans out
a few games in will tell us for sure

afterthought would assume Waite is one of the answers

Didnt think he struggled at all, just didnt get much service and was up against very good opposition. Seem to remember him having one chance which was a shot which was saved.

What does 'you wouldnt' mean?!

Playing in a team with players of a different standard than last season, in the first friendly.

If you get your kicks out of getting annoyed by a non league football teams performance/result in the first pre-season friendly against higher opposition, then carry on by all means 😅

Red & white striped shirts, blue shorts & blue socks away from home?

Boro kit at home?

Flexibility of playing styles?

After all, we now have two UEFA 'A' Grade coaches within the ranks.

Your both forgetting Nobel was playing really well towards the end of the season he was was like a wall at R&D completely closed of the middle of the park making it impossible for them to play through so they had to resort to hitting long balls and hoping . No way he isn't going to be in the reckoning to start .
