    I think I might have missed this, but there’s been talk on here about DA announcing something next month. Can you fill me in please? Why October, why not now? Any indication what it’s about and what has spurred him to make this statement? Does this announcement come with Sparks’s endorsement?

    cheers

    It was in response to a question from an interviewer about Tunbull's departure. Adams said he would provide an update in early October. Adams then got ratty with the interviewer when asked for more details. Make of that what you want!

    I don't believe anybody really knows but I doubt that will stop itks from speculating

    Sounds like we don’t really have anyone lined up but Turnbull was the fall guy for our supposed poor summer recruitment wise.
    I imagine we are trying to find someone to front it up again and need them in by October to make sure we are “prepared” for January?
    Anyone get a feeling of deja-vu

    Hopefully something along the lines of:

    'We're going to stop signing shite players and sign good ones instead'.

    Radical, I know.

    Did we sign that many bad players in the summer? At this level you are always asking too much if you’re signing 8/10 every window

    It'll never work as a football business model.

    Apparently it is October is when the restructure is announced and my guess is that’s when he becomes available. Turnbull left last week, if he was allowed a week to appeal against any restructure before his departure was announced, that means the decision was taken first week in September and the new person has a month to tie up any loose ends or work a notice where they currently are. It’s also three months after he left Morecambe, and after the transfer window, so *could* tie in with a non poaching clause

    Pure conjecture on my part.

    How many good one's did we sign...?

    Its slightly tongue in cheek, but our 2 quality performers in Cooke and Vernam were already here.

    Ridehalgh and Threlkeld look OK. Kelleher looks every inch a non-league centre back. Songo'o can't get a game in a position where we don't look convincing. Gillead has no assists or goals to his game despite being a regular, Eisa wasn't starting even before he was injured, Angol won't get 15 games this season given his hamstring problems. Lavery and Robinson - the less said the better.

    Its still early days, I get that. But the more I see of this team, the more that our summer recruitment looks inadequate.

    I’d say there’s been Angol as a positive, he’s getting better by the day. Ridehalgh is a steady league two player, Threlkeld has too many mistakes costing a goal in him, the forwards apart from Cook and Kelleher are shit, Songo’o as the centre piece signing not playing at all is much a mystery as why we signed Samuels and Burrell. Eisa who knows.

    So that’s probably two maybe three positives so far. I’d prefer a few more positives and fewer players you’d be looking to ditch in January.

    Same. Apart from a slightly different opinion on Threlkeld that I don’t wholly disagree with.

    See, you can't write that on here. The happyclappers won't like that.

    So Turnbulls signings ?

    Huffer - back up, not used so no chance to rate
    Vernam - finally finding his feet - mostly positive
    Crankshaw - jury still out. 50/50
    Cook - 100% positive
    Rowe- poor signing
    Stevens - very poor
    Burrell - ditto huffer, suspect the reason he didn't play is he was poor
    Canavan - positive
    Foulds - never seen him. Can only assume he ranks with Burrell
    Lavery - poor
    Robinson - think he will come good
    Kelleher - poor
    Songo'o - ditto Robinson
    Eisa - ditto Robinson
    Gilliead- poor
    Threlkeld- jury's out
    Ridehalgh- positive
    Angol - positive

    I've missed one. Who is it ?

    Conclusion. Turnbulls recruitment is mostly poor.

    well, you've quoted 12 out of 18 positive, or 12/16 if you ignore the ones who haven't played. I'd say that was mostly positive.

    We made the mistake of signing players to sit on the bench. We should always be trying to sign better than we have.
