Liam Hogan imo is a perfect example of experience that could improve us - I suppose a lot depends on what our current centre backs decide to do, as I'd prefer to prioritise the three we've had first and foremost.

Sticking to centre halves, Jamie Stott I wouldn't mind seeing here either - and I think he's left-sided too.

Tom Walker is a bit of a funny one - came with lots of pedigree, we didn't see him much when he was here but Parky would have had a good chance to take a look at him - he's clearly a very gifted technical footballer much like James Poole - or if I'm being a bit more harsh, Greg Wilkinson... not sure he's what we need but what do I know...

Definitely prefer to keep Mullarky, Ferguson and Cooper.

If there was a betting market you'd expect Tom Walker to be odds on to end up here. Local, free, technical attacker who can play across the three. And we have a vacancy at #10.

What about Kosylo. Have we heard if he's staying? I'd have put him at 10 if he was.
Our biggest vacancy, imvho, is at 9. (have I mentioned this before? 😊)

Hogan would be higher on my list than Cooper. Adds championship winning experience, fills some of the gap left by Jake.

Walker would be a great addition and allow rotation.

I think keeper will be the most difficult position to cover (if we can keep Eddie Jones) as TT has very big boots to fill.

Agree with Hogan but in my opinion we need to look better quality than Walker and Cooper to give it a proper go.

Hogan wasnít ever present in Stockport team. Their fans didnít rate him. Cooper looked solid as did Ferguson. Sign those two with Mullarkey and we certainly donít need Hogan

Iíd like us to go with Mullarkey, Ferguson and Cooper if we can keep all 3. Not sure Hogan would be right option.

As I have said on the thread about the Magnificent 7, we are not just replacing quality footballers, but a lot of character.
I am sure Parkie will live up to his reputation for looking at these football intelligent players with character, strength and humour.

Can anyone here see players of such character that might be available?

It would probably depend on

a) firstly is Liam Hogan still fit and good enough? If heís released because theyíre in the FL now and have huge resources anyway then thatís ok? If itís because his legs are starting to go or have gone then thatís a red flag.

b) assuming heís ok then look at who we are replacing. Hannigan has gone so if itís his experience and steadiness we want to replace them Hogan would fit the bill. Think Mullarkey, Cooper, Ferguson, Hogan would be an improvement on the four centre halves we started this season with certainly?


Iím easy either way but the point is, Parky and Sorvs will have an idea of the make up and balance of their squad they want players to fit to.

You need 4 centre halves. Thatís an absolute necessity.

If perrit can play centre half I think the three from the end of this season plus perrit would do. Iíd rather spend the limited budget on the first XI than get a 4th CB who might play 3 or 4 times a season. Long term injury to one of the three means dipping into the loan market but thatís ok

I'd be very surprised (and delighted) if Perritt signed. I think he's destined for much higher things.
I agree about the four centre backs but suspect Parky will go for three with perhaps Hall as back up on loan to stay fit.
By the way, I'm not saying I agree with that.

Perritt I believe is under contract at Accrington for next season so the best we can hope for with him is another loan.
