Squaddies, bodies, numbers.

Ex city player with injuries since he joined and a buy back clause, maybe he will come good yet.

Hope so and yes the injuries won't have helped but the other bit ?  Nah it doesn't mean a lot really, Hart for example ex Liverpool.

Davenport has never started a game for us I dont think. And Whiteman may have been so important to Doncaster that they were refusing to sell at an affordable price.

Its unfair to assume he isnt up to it on such limited views and assumptions 

Not really mate. I’ve given my reasons and ultimately I’m free to form pretty much any opinion I like.

My issue is that the gap in quality between the two divisions is so big that i find it hard to believe he’d make much of an impact. Added to that, I believe, having watched our own midfielders play many times that those mentioned would walk into Doncaster’s team...or any team in that league. Thus strengthening my resolve around signing Whiteman.

I think if we had signed the 2018 Davenport now after Travis's injury the board would be buzzing.  Its not his fault about injuries. I really hope he gets a run of games tbh.

That Jack Byrne was another one came from City with a big reputation. Did nothing for us.

Don't remember seeing him.  Ifs and buts, sadly a big disappointment and will slip down the divisions.

Meanwhile, my mate Ben is a top player. Strong and can control a game and has a great shot on him.  Get shut of pretenders like Davenport, Jonty etc and bring in proper players...come on Tony youve been flirting for 2 years now....wonder why when you have the likely lads already at your disposal....get your cheque book out man and sign a proper player for our future.. you know you want to....

Davenport has been with us for 2+ years now and hasn't started a game. I can't see any logical reason for optimism over him but hey-ho he could conceivably come good at some point.

Probably when his contacts up knowing our luck.

Don't think that's it. The max Fleetwood are allowed to contribute is 2.5k p/w and we are still entertaining that. Shouldn't be an issue for a Championship side.

That would leave us paying close to £15k a week for a bloke not to play for us . Add that to the last 9 months when he has also been paid not to play for us and we’ve blown our brains. No wonder football clubs are deep in the soft stuff.

Doesnt really make me want tax payers money to be used to shore up an industry that’s rotten to the core and one that’s certainly no more deserving than any other part of the economy whose plight isn’t any where near as self inflicted as football is. 
The whole thing is pretty sickening tbh especially when it’s been fed to us by the likes of Swaggot on £300k a year .

I have not seen enough to form an opinion of Whitehead.

But I really think Buckley will prove you wrong.You can see in the matches he is growing in confidence, always asking for the ball.His assist for Arma was worth the tenner alone for ifollow last week imo

I hope you are right mate....we need all the good players we can get.  Doesn't change the fact that Mowbray is looking

Don't think so; it's chaddy not doing the rest of us the courtesy of reading his posts before he posts them. Again.

Like a certain Bradley Dack and Gillingham 😎

I do personally think it would be a luxury signing, plenty of areas in the back 5 need strengthening before I’d look at CM. Like yourself and others have said we have a good mix of players available there now.

If Whiteman has 9 months left his best option is to see it out. He’ll probably treble his wages by holding out for 9 months.

It's not really gambling with their development if we are going to be playing a 3 man midfield. I also have my doubts that Buckley has what it takes. There have been plenty of players who haven't got the move until a bit later in their career. 

I don't. He created 5 chances against Wycombe, the most in the league despite only coming on fairly late as a sub. He is a class act.

He means he was excellent, and was in the EFL team of the week.

It means I disagree with @roversfan99 comment on which he said he was poor.

It does appear he signed a new contract last November until 2023. The site I looked on hasnt updated there data. So my apologies.

Yes I disagree with @roversfan99's comment who said he was poor last weekend. Which he wasn't.
