Yes. I recall Adam Proudlock was amazingly pacey when we last played Stockport.

Spoke to a Wolves-supporting colleague about Proudlock. Good player but there may be question marks against his attitude (and blimy, according to the stockport site he's a big lad). Not sure we'll have a big enough squad to carry any passengers next season.

There's no doubt that Adam had considerable potential when in his teens and played in the Wolves team that won promotion to the Premiership. Possibly he suffered, after joining Wolves as a teenager on Championship wages, from continuing to live in the small country market town where he was brought up and went to school and where everyone knew him. He now has a young family so has probably settled down somewhat. Interestingly, he made his Stockport debut as a substitute against us the season before last in the match where Welchy scored his famous equaliser.

Coley will have seen Adam play a few times and I'm sure that he'll weigh up all the pros and cons before making any move.

Re: "No Major Influx of Players" - Heys

I think you'll be pleased with Chris King. He is pacey, loves to get forward, is a good crosser and has one hell of a left foot shot. He will be sadly missed (and hard to replace at TNS).
Added to that he's a really nice guy, in spite of being a scouser!
Signed
Chris King....(Only joking!)

Talking of scousers, Jon Newby was freed by Shrimps, does anyone know if he's fixed up yet?

Jon Newby is a conference standard striker.

The majority of Shrimps fans would totally disagree with that comment.

Many think that he should have been kept on. The only reason he wasn't was because he wasn't under a 2 year contract and with Sammy Mc wanting to bring a proven League 1 / League 2 striker in, Newbs was the one who had to go.

The only problem that Newby has is his lack of physical presence. What he lacks in that direction he more than compensates with skill and awareness.

What aload of nonsense

If I had my way he'd still be at Morecambe, One thing you get from Newby is his ability to unnerve defences with his pace and he certainly knows how to find the net (when given the chance),
At one stage his name was being banded around League one with Latics very interested and I still think he's more than good enough to be in any League Two side...........................including yours!

should you get lucky that is

We need an inspiratinal signing, someone to stick bums on seats, someone to get people talking! Take a punt on a Long Term Loanee but who could that be?

would love it to be a recognised Striker to play off Mullen?
