Where do we need to strengthen?
#31

Hopefully has no bearing on us but Ian Holloway, manager at Grimsby Town, where Paul Groves is a local legend having both captained and previously managed them is announcing a statement today about his future at Grimsby. Presumably he's leaving them. Yes, we need to strengthen the squad - but we also need to retain a good manager. I'm just speculating and hope this doesn't affect us.

He's also a shareholder and they seem to be having some issues behind the scenes. I highly doubt Grimsby would want to replace Ian Holloway with Paul Groves.

Hope so. This comment on Grimsby's situation and Ian Holloway - seems to be an issue with the club owners:

"Should of done some "due diligence" on the owners of the Club before he signed up.

Would of certainly questioned the past behaviours and way previous managers have been treated. No good bleating now its all gone t*ts up!"

Jonte Smith anyone?

Contract with Chelt ran out in the Summer, but has been continuing his rehab with them as he was out injured. Looks like he should be fully fit in the NY.

I notice Ed Williams hasn't been getting much game time, maybe worth keeping an eye on from a loan perspective?

If we could step back as city fans, which I know is completely impossible but just trying to look at it without a vested interest, be interesting to see what happens with the team and the new manager.
Think every one happy with the appointment, let's see what that means in reality, how good are those connections, what does the appointment bring to the club

Gabby Agbonlahor has said he'd like to come out of retirement. Would he be interested in NLN?

He didn't look anywhere near fit last time I saw him play, and given his game is based on speed and high energy, that would be a worry.

As well as a main striker we also need a third, with Bernard stepping up as back-up when needed.

I would like to see Joe Parker back.

He may not be an automatic start but he would offer a different option with his pace and directory and would open up defences. Doesn't score as many goals as his ability demands, but I reckon the confidence of playing in a good and successful team will bring out the best in him.

Joe Parker can't even get in Leamington's match day squad - I don't think he's the level we should be looking for.

Maybe, but I think he is a talent in poor form and confidence. With some good management I reckon he'll fly again.
