Buckley on a short term deal till January. Suggests it is a conscious decision by FV to keep the deals short term, and allow themselves to change direction in January...

I think that Buckley will be a different player under Hill, the way Hill likes his teams to play - decent re-signing IMO.

Maybe but they approved year long deals for the ones that signed before they came.

Perhaps taking injury records into account?

The Stoke forum makes for interesting reading re Verlinden. He's made 1 start and a couple of substitute appearances for the first team and looked like an exciting prospect. Given their start and established players not performing, most are shocked that he's been allowed out on loan AND that he's come to us.

Their under fire manager had said in pre season that it would take a very good offer to get him out on loan. I can't imagine we've made one of those, which adds to the surprise.

Let's hope he's more Ameobi than Solomon Otobar

He would be a 24 carrot signing.

Bunney released by Northampton. Was at Rochdale under Hill. Sounds pretty nailed on. And we need a LB.

So:

----------------------------Matthews------------------------------
Lowe-----------Hobbs---------Edwards/Zouma------Bunney
----------------------Bridcutt--------Murphy---------------------
--Verlinden------------------Politic------------------Buckley----
---------------------------????????????---------------------------------

We may have got from 0-5 to 0-2. Desperately need a striker or two....

Maybe they're the 'frees' we don't have to worry about because we can still have them after 5pm!

I think Buckley is going to be played in the middle. Might actually see if he is okay there.

In talks according to Pete O'Rourke...however we're linked with a lot of wide men right now - can't be signing them all.
