Across the board at every club not getting relegated, that is the reality. Low transfer fees and freebies. I'm sure there will be at least 3 signings over this shortened off-season. Go, CB, and LB. Anything else we get is a bonus, CM, Forward, or a winger.

We simply have to sign a goalkeeper, preferably two otherwise we're in a bit of trouble.

Supposedly about to sign Christian Maghoma, former Spurs centreback. Also from DRC and 6'6".

Also reporting that Dillon Phillips, goalkeeper for Charlton, is rumoured to be on the radar.

Maghoma sounds interesting. Based on absolutely no knowledge of the guys ability I'm already hopeful that this guy is going to be in the same mold and have the same impact as Chris Samba :yeahright: :D

I'm surprised our scouting network has reached that far! At least this is a bit of evidence that we are indeed scouting European clubs. Only 22 as well. I'm hopeful this gets done quickly and isn't drawn out only for him to move to another championship side.

If it is indeed accurate, lets hope it's not just scouting but good scouting.

I somehow mis-read that as Dijon PhillIps and was going to make a pun about hoping he cut the mustard, so inevitably we’ll sign him now so I can carry on getting his name wrong.

Apropos of wholegrain, I am thinking of getting an extra cat for the household so I can call it Cato Banton.

I blame it on the cricket today.

More talk of Jordan Jones. Looks affordable (whatever affordable is these days!?) if reports are correct...

Per Telegraph, clubs are looking at Arma.
We always knew we could lose him; I was hoping we could get one more year from him & Dack.

I think we will. Bit of a gamble for Prem teams. I think he'll be here next season.

Jordan Jones could be a good addition, injury derailed season but was great for Kilmarnock year before.

Chapman hasn't shown enough and Mowbray is clearly a bit frustrated with his effort; losing Samuel, Graham and potentially Downing limits the wide forward options so if he's affordable we should go for it.

This comes under the general tomfoolery part of this section. I gave myself 5 minutes to internet scout us a new goalkeeper and came up with Lee Nichols from MK Dons. You're Welcome. :hyper:

Might be a keeper! (Pardon the pun, lol) Went out of contract the end of June
