Replacing deadwood with deadwood. Mental.

Worse than deadwood.. somehow.. I doubt there is many players I'd like less to be linked with.

Nightmare injury situation for the last two seasons, now we`re rumoured to be getting another cripple in, stunning news if true.

yep, can't say this potential signing makes me particularly happy. Couple of years ago maybe.

Really hope this is just agent talk.

Good God there is people on Twitter actually happy about this rumour. Have they never seen him play? Or even seen him?

But he's a name they've heard of. And he played for Liverpool. They've seen him score a screamer on MotD. So he must be great.

I was living in London when he scored that goal and a load of Scottish lads came into the bar I worked in (one claiming to be his brother) and I remember them saying he always tries those shots. Hit and hope player rather than than someone like Baker who has a long distance shot in his pocket.

saw something saying he wanted to stay in the NW, so hopefully that is also true, and being 'somewhere near London' will put him off

For all we know we have offered him a one year contact at £1500 pw which would not break the bank and CM is an area where we are very short of experience. Who knows he might regain some form.

Having said that if we have offered more than a year that would be mental.

I would 100% agree but for whatever reason we didn't and so we are where we are. I can only think we expected Baker back - but that now looks unlikely.

Good for back-up and twenty minutes. Good passer of the ball and set-piece taker. Don’t see the uproar from the usual suspects. This summer and probably in January, we are bordering on the beggars can’t be choosers.

Because we've been desperately trying to trim the squad all summer, we still need several players in key areas, we've got very little money to play with, and we're being told that some of that money might be wasted on someone who is "good for back-up and twenty minutes".

Something he hasn't actually managed in two years anyway.

A lot of the fat trimming isn’t all about quality either, it’s about wages. We’re trying to fend of FFP punishments and still remain competitive. Too many seem to be getting blurry eyed wondering why a Kelly on 20k a week goes and maybe an Adam at 10k a week arrives. Gourlay absolutely f**ked us. We’re lucky we aren’t the third League One club this season to be starting with minus 12 points!
