Re: 2020/21 Squad

For once in a long while I can honestly say all seven signings plus hopefully another goalkeeper could be pushing for starting places we could well be dark horses this season.

Re: 2020/21 Squad

for me it looks a very promising squad this season even with clarky going.

Loved Clarke but I think we became very predictable last season everything was going through him, this season looking like a different shape and some quality looking players on board could well force a lot of familiar faces from the line up.

Re: 2020/21 Squad

The Squad seems to be building nicely but I agree that we need another goalkeeper yet. Some of the new signings look to have great potential but some of them haven’t played that many games in recent seasons....... and I mean before the Lockdown closure stopped all players from participating in matches. However, I am confident that our management team will get them all fully match fit and then we should see more clearly which of them are going to realise their potential. Once again, we have a really interesting few months ahead with some unanswered questions and a relatively new team to develop together and to build a real team ethic which Stanley is well known for. I am fascinated by the prospect of which players will develop into our star players and which ones fall away.....? I am really hopeful that with the balance of ages and physical stature in the squad that we will do well this season.
Just one other point regarding the pitch at The Wham Stadium.....This long ‘close season’, that we have had, is the first for a few years where the pitch has not been resurfaced and reseeded. So the grass should have really consolidated a deeper and more resilient root system. So our team should be able to play our preferred passing game throughout the whole season.
Really looking forward to getting back into the stadium and cheering our team on!
ON STANLEY ON
COME ON YOU REDS

Just watched a video compilation, on the Stanley Facebook page, of some of our new signings scoring goals. Some great headed goals shown so we should have an even greater aerial threat particularly at Set Pieces!

Well pleased with the Stephen Sama signing if he was trialist A in the Salford outing. Be great to hit the ground running tonight but might take a month or so for the team to gel.
Patience eh lads n lasses - dya know where I can buy some !

Re: 2020/21 Squad

New player coming in Monday and listening to Coley,s post match interview doesn't sound like a goalkeeper could it be a striker Southend's Stephen Humphrey been listed and wants a move near home (Oldham) Rochdale been turned down although it would require a fee just wondering.

If rumours are correct and the lad wants a move then money in would be welcome to the club to cover Covid losses a loss if it does happen but new systems and players Sama might fill that role we wait and see.

All over social media now about Callum £200,000 fee being bandied about if true and he wants to go is that rumoured fee enough?

Nowhere near.... But a with a year left on his contract I don't think we have much option other than to take it?

Especially if he wants to go if it happens it will undoubtedly be undisclosed.
