    Parker…….where do you think he gets these journalistic “ scoops” from?

    Sounds like “our Laura” type of scoop, fed information for the unwashed?

    Probably a mix of twitter, those itk and the club itself...

    Regardless, you have your head in the sand if you dont believe Stockton is on our radar.

    Adams inherited him he signed for morecambe on 15th August 2019. But if he signs him then i agree, he believes in him.

    No doubt Adams got the best out of him but like I said, he's 27 and this is the first time he's performed. I think that points more to the belief that he's had a purple patch of a season more than anything else. But like I said, as a backup then sure. But not as a first choice striker.

    If all this is true, and not Government smoke and mirrors talk , I wonder if he’s going to use him as the battering ram type c/f . A bit like Bobby?

    That’s where your Andy Cook comes in for loose balls and knock downs ?

    To be fair, it's League Two.

    You don't actually need to have a good record to suddenly have a good season.

    Have you seen Paul Mullin's career? Three full seasons at Morecambe playing 40+ games, never scored double figures.

    Since he left Morecambe, he's scored 6-5-5 in his next three seasons. Then BAM. 32.

    Look at Matt Jay. Been at Exeter his whole career, never been first choice striker, best he's ever done is 4 goals in a season, then he hits 25 years of age and scores 18 goals.

    Utterly inexplicable.

    Contrast that with signing a proven goalscorer like Eoin Doyle, and he's utterly horrendous here, goes elsewhere, does really well again.

    It just goes to show, you can obsess over signing the 'proven' striker who 'should' be ace, but sometimes it's a guy on the verge of failing as a League Two footballer that hits a boatload. It happens most seasons, too. Last year, Ollie Palmer was a very low scoring EFL striker (decent in non league), goes to Crawley, it clicks, he scores 27 goals in 2 seasons and moves to AFC Wimbledon in League One. Scores 5.

    The top scorers in League Two are rarely any good.

    Naive to suggest he will be our only main option. Promotion the aim and you need at least a trio for that. Im certain Adams knows this though.

    Some on here are making out all our eggs are in the Stockton basket and we will back him up with a journeyman, a kid on loan and Gareth Evans.

    Sometimes players just click at a club and suddenly they're in the form of their lives. Mullin and Stockton look like that sort of player. But they're not the sort of player that's necessarily going to give you the best chance of success.

    Well yeah, we need to sign three strikers. If he comes in as second or third choice behind a better player then fine. Obviously we won't sign three top level strikers.

    Meanwhile in other transfer news, interestingly,Omar I Patrick signed for Burton Albion from Carlisle


    I'm quick, a bit skilful, like to drive forward and take on defenders. It's a platform to come to a league above and hopefully I can establish myself here," Patrick said.

    Boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink added: "We know we need pace and directness, and he brings all of that.

    "He's a young guy, he's hungry and he will give us good options in the attacking areas, where we need to improve."

    Clearly someone rates him…….

    Look, when it comes to one season wonders, no one will ever hold a candle to Tom Pope

    Nothing's explaining the Matt Jay thing though.

    Imagine if we still had a striker from our youth system who, at 24, had only ever scored 4 goals per season.

    People would be doing their nut demanding to know why we'd wasted another year on a proven failure!

    18 goals.

    Done apart from the personal terms? If he’s a free agent surely that’s the main thing to discuss?

    Just a quick look at his stats and this is the first season he has managed more than 18 appearances at Exeter. The season before he only started 9 games and didn't play upfront, season before that just 11 starts. He's probably benefitted more from playing regularly and further forward this season.

    Think Songo simply needs to sign them.
