Damp squibs compared to some others in the league

We're building for the future. Good young players who we can develop.

Duncan Watmore  is a classic example, Kyle Ferguson was only a year older and he coped easily

Don’t usually agree but I do here. These young lads will get eaten alive in this league

It’s not clear that they’re being signed for immediate first team action. I’d imagine they’re not (see Salmon, Berry, Hall), but if they play their way into the side and they’re good enough then what signings they could be. Low risk, high reward as opposed to the influx of ageing ex-League players last summer.

We’ve got a massive squad to build here, it requires a mixture of steady Conference heads, who we’re all expecting to arrive in time, and the younger talent that we’re identifying.

Some players are on holiday, some may have numerous offers of which we are one. There’s two months to go. Let it play out.

Calm down, you're not allowed to use common sense around these parts!

Just a couple of points.
Firstly, I don't think we're building a massive squad and we've got fifteen already so only four or five more to come I'd say.
Secondly, I'd say you're correct in saying more experienced players will be coming in over the next couple of weeks. My wishes would be for a keeper, centre back, wide player and a number nine. It isn't easy, that's why it's seemed to be taking so long.
Keep the faith!

Don't act like you don't think these have hyberbole Andrew, we're in the same off-air chats. As I said you it's clear there's a plan to profit from kids but that doesn't mean they need to be treated like Marquee signung

And Marple, that's nonsense isn't it, complete nonsense. I wanted us to change away watching 18 games without a win playing hoof ball.

I don't remember the P45 being painted on the banner, or when we were one of handleful of hardcore not to boo him off at Solihull (we actually clapped and backed him).

Always said Phil is our best hope of EFL status, he just needed to stop playing Porter and Peers who were statistically sh*t and play Football. You wouldn't believe what happened after we reverted to our style of play and signed a few steady heads.. Oh wait we won 5 in a row at home without conceeed.

On the first point, I'm sure we'll end up with a lot more players on our books than we will have in our first team squad (which we're told will be 18-20). Lads like the one we've just signed will, I would guess, mostly be out on loan to develop them towards the first team in a year or two.

Calm down man. My post wasn't targeted at you, as much as you've taken it that way and gone off on a rant.

But if you're going to cite offline chats about the plan being to profit from these recent signings, perhaps you should post those thoughts on here instead, as opposed to calling them damp squibs, which is doing nothing to improve the way some of the contributors view you on here.

I think they’re probably squad fillers. You need 20 odd fit players louring the week to do full training with.

Might be a good time to pull in a few young talents before f**king Macclesfield do

Yet another teaser:

Any guesses?

Possibly a goalkeeper?

The commentary says “the altrincham goal scorer is” and then cuts out so my guess is a forward-could be a big one?
