Some good updates there guys, NF hope you get back into it. Never the mind of offer for Assistant Manager though, I need a head scout, I pay well and hopefully you will actually be contactable, as my scout seems to have gone AWOL...I'm not kidding!
Just starting September so thought I would fire a brief update.
In the league we are doing well, sitting top with 11 points after 5 games, it's pleasing but draws against Rochdale and Crawley were dissapointing and really we should have won.
In the league cup, a 4-1 home win against Wigan has got us through to the third round were we will face Blackburn. Could be another good chance to knock out a team that's top of the league.
Transfer wise, I have taken the decision to pay the 120k (agreed fee) to Swansea and sign Rory Donnelly. He has been brilliant in every game and I didn't want to risk a bigger team coming in for him in January or at the end of the season and me missing out. His low wages and lack of an agent made it a quite cheap deal over all. Also incomng is Paulo Gazziniga, released by Southampton so a free transfer, he has joined on a 1 year deal and will give us some competition for places in goal.
The reason why I mentioned about my scout is because since I sold my previous back up keeper Stuckman to Oldham (who apparently was home sick and wanted to go to Germany!), I asked my scout to find me a replacement goalkeeper. Nearly 2 months later and he has found no one at all, not even some useless reserve player or dodgy Italian like the scouts normally find, not a single person.
Anyway, going well, gonna crack on and maybe post again later.
