For new signings, ask the man from the Pru

Apparently it's that time again and we need a new transfer thread.

It's going to be tough taking over from Spotty's uproariously successful thread, but with a new manager to come and plenty of transfer action (outwards at least), maybe this is the one to get us back on the up.

You're brave.

This'll probably be the most gut wrenching and soul destroying transfer thread in years.

Yes, you can stare into the abyss, but it's staring right back.

It will be interesting though. Not sure it will be good but there will be lots of movement.

I reckon my transfer-to-pages ratio will be decent. Not sure if they'll be good 'uns.

I've at least set myself the target of being the one to finally get rid of Darren f*cking Pratley.

Hey, el Armario can stay. Cheap, experienced and already here. We'll need a few of those.

Probably our best signing in your transfer thread :-) We'd have stayed up comfortable if you hadn't got rid of the fecker!

Trotter will be POTY. Mark my words. Dominant performances and a third tier scoring record on a par with Julian Darby.

Interesting fact, my gran knew the most (in)famous man from the Pru, one William Herbert Wallace, who was convicted of killing his wife and sentenced to death before remarkably being cleared on appeal due to a lack of evidence.

Good job he got off, that'd have almost certainly would have invalidated his life insurance policy.

Well done Sir. Takes a brave man to stick his head above the parapet Pru. Good luck, you might need it, it's not going to be an easy ride.

The thing about it you notice first is that it's like one big family. Everyone has been there before and has that hollow, dead look in their eyes. I'm just looking forward to the challenge.

Not so much popped his head above the parapet as stepped out onto the balcony, be-decked in fuchsia and cigarette coquettishly held askance.......
