Possible CCC replacements
« on: June 17, 2024, 10:07:09 PM »

All the best to Chris and thanks for the memories. Since PP came in he has played with a number ten behind a main striker, James Poole, Josh Hancock , kossy and CCC .Presume this will follow and  these are the attacking midfielders who could  be the next number 10?

Nick Haughton -Fylde  possible but a transfer fee would be needed and quite a hefty one I would think

Matt Warburton - Solihull - still uder contract so would probabbly command a fee , could do a job for a season or so .

Liam Waldock - Alfreton , out of contact and highly rated . Will be others but the ones im thinking of are wingers or strikers

Would love Haughton.

Warburton past his best?

I think it's Newby. Crankshaw out left, amaluzor out right. Still scary good that.

Happy for us to bring in more options for depth but if our headline signing was deeper in midfield I'd be chuffed.

Would like to get Haughton too though he seems really happy at Fylde and after 6 seasons there and been continually been linked to FL clubs i do think he would only leave them for a move upwards.  Urmston born though so let's see 🤞

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.

One thing is for sure, Linney will have the opportunity to appear from his shadow(yes hes a different type of player)  and show everyone what he can do, it is a big season for the guy if he harbours dreams of playing in the league.

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.

I've absolutely never had Haughton down as an Alty signing and tbh I'm quite surprised how often his name has been mentioned - his wage wouldn't come cheap and thankfully the management team look at the full package when it comes to player personalities etc.

Slightly further back on the pitch but I see Ryan Croasdale has stayed in the EFL with Port Vale - and Luke Young has joined up with Cheltenham. No announcement on the potential Tom Crawford signing yet, it'll be interesting to see if things start to move a bit now.

I rate Newby but not in the 10 position at National League level.

Crankshaw could possibly play there but for me, we need a big signing in that position.

Also, a big signing in CM.

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 .

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.

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