Hopefully Ollie Crankagaw will be like a new signing, im sure if  read he's not due back until September,

Obviously it's easy to say now with hindsight, but I did think signing Crankshaw was a bit of a risk given that we tend to prefer to play wingers / wide forwards on their inverted sides (with the full backs giving the extra width I suppose) but he strikes me as more old school, preferring to hug the touchline and bomb up and down like a Brad Jackson type (or Justin Donawa).

He's clearly been a great player so I just hope he can get back up to the levels he's performed at previously - should hopefully feel like a new signing in itself of course.

Waldock would be an interesting (and very Parky) signing but I can't help feeling that it'll be Matty Warburton from Solihull.

Not far off being the usual talking points which you would expect to hear for a wider audience.

I noted that Parky say's he's confident they have Chris' replacement identified already. I'd have hoped so since this was on the cards since Christmas essentially, but at the same time it's re-assuring to hear.

Fin Sinclair-Smith leaving Marine - 21 goals last season in the NPL from left wing, former teammate of Regan Linney - and possibly more likely to be ready than Lucas Weaver.

I do think we might see Alex Newby at number 10 a bit more often next season, and I'd be happy enough to see how he gets on there if so - he uses the ball well and has generally improved as the season has rolled on.

Possibly give him a go in pre season at 10 but think we need a specialist in that postion imo

Alex Newby has played at 10 for a number of his previous clubs, including in the EFL - albeit you're right that he's played on the wing more often in that time, and it's always been for chronically struggling teams too. I'm sure he'll want to take the shirt number as I believe it's his preferred one.

Most, if not all of our recent number 10's didn't start there for us - Josh Hancock, Matty Kosylo, and Chris himself.
All of this. I think he has stayed with some of this pre-agreed. I think he holds every bit of the playmaker skills we want in that spot. If anything, for me, he never actually spends much time out wide. He drifts inside, works a play outwide then comes in to the middle.

I think Newbs is an absolute baller and possibly will open the game up more than CCC did as when Chris took a shot Newbs will look for a man more often.

This might sound like absolute copium but I don't know how much quality we're losing from the starting line up with Crankshaw coming in to the team. I'm more concerned at the moment over losing a midfielder/CB or God fobid, Ethan gets a call from the League.

I don't know... Nick Haughton has never struck me as an Alty signing; almost a bit too 'marquee', the sort of player Oldham go in for (and promptly turn him rubbish).

He's arguably more of an 8 than a 10, but it worked well for us with Maxi... I'd be making big moves for Lewis Leigh whilst he's pondering over signing a new contract with Preston. But given he did well at Crewe I'd be surprised if there weren't League Two clubs in for him too, including Bromley given he did well there too and they went up.

One thing's clear, we'll struggle to sign like-for-like and might need more of a functional 10 to allow us to push on further from where we are.
Listening to Jordan's podcast I'm also now aware the Haughton is a sh*t trainer so that might talk to his ambitions. Also Parky even came out and said regarding Fylde paying higher wages than us.

I don't think I care if we sign a marquee signing as much as I care that our current recruitment team are involved in the search. We'll find a replacement that I have no doubt.
This being the case he can stay in his happy /comfortable place then . Apart from Crawford i know little or nothing about other possibles mentioned  tbh .
