Another plausible theory (as propounded below) is Alex Reid, who's certainly surplus to requirements at Edgeley Park now that County have signed Kyle Wootton:

That's a very good shout and I certainly wouldn't be disappointed if he signed for us! 18 in 55 games is just what we need.

Iím happy with that. I thought he was better than Ferguson but I seemed to be in the minority.

At the very least weíll start with a centre back partnership of Cooper and Mullarkey which was solid enough this season before we start titting about with others.

Baines sounds a good player but at least Iíve seen these two play together.

Would like us to get Perrett and Jones too.

I certainly think Cooper was unlucky not to be starting as he hadn't done anything wrong (in fact, his first big error came right at the end of the season) - but I do think Ferguson looked a particularly super player.

Given the reputation Baines brings with him, I actually think it'll be him and Toby with Jake Cooper in reserve. If clubs come back for Toby, then Cooper will step in like Toby did when James Jones left.

I'd love Harry Perritt back, but I think Accy will probably want to have a good luck at him in pre season because he's good enough to be a squad lpayer for them immediately.

I did think Jones might have been released by Stoke, but given they brought him back for their U23s they must still have him in their plans. He'll be more realistic than Perritt imo.

That's the back four sorted now. We've got three for the two midfield spots so now we just (!) need a keeper, wide player and target man.

By the way, when do release our list of players we are letting go from those who've been out on loan? Has anyone any idea?

Yes, getting our business done nice and early. Pro-actively signing the likes of Cooper and Lundstrum undoubtedly one of the obvious benefits of us going FT. Not a whole lot to do now other than the ones you mention and also keep our fingers crossed re Colclough. A bit of clarity on the training ground too when we have that, assuming itís largely signed off to be at Egerton by Knutsford as previously mentioned.

Yes. I'd forgotten about the training ground. It's not been officially mentioned as being Egerton I don't think but we're all assuming that's where it's going to be.
Surely training will be starting in a couple of weeks given that we're only four weeks away from the start of the friendlies? I'd have expected to hear something soon about both things.

I wonder if Parky's tempted to try three at the back a bit more next season.

Not been a success when deployed so far, granted - however we never had the personnel to execute it particularly well (especially given Digie was involved).

We've signed a very obviously left-sided centre back, two particularly attacking full backs - and haven't strengthened as much at number 10 which would make way.

Not quite true. Cooper made a big mistake that led to the corner from which Southend took the lead against us at Roots Hall. He seemed to carry the can for that loss and it opened the door for Ferguson. I do though think that Cooper looked a solid player and at 21 is an excellent signing.

We're conveniently forgetting his first touch in an Alty shirt, just seconds into his debut. He made a hash of clearing a routine ball, and Woking were a goal ahead as a result (in fairness, the rest of the defence could have done better, but it started from him).

I seem to remember a story about a certain defender (Stuart Pearce?) who early in his career made a bad mistake and was asked about it by his manager ("he's done you there"). Apparently he promised him it wouldn't happen again - and the rest is history, so to speak. At 21, and playing full time, there is plenty of time for my namesake to sort these things out. And if he doesn't we could always go back to Digie... :)

Fair enough, I stand corrected on his errors - I guess we all agree he's a good player with lots of poential, and I'm pleased he's here longer term to develop further under Parky.

In any case I firmly believe Baines will start ahead of him so I think Cooper will continue to be understudy for now.
