Experienced, ball-playing CB needed
at 11:21 16 Aug 2017

Mick most likely wants to bring in an experienced player to cover for the injuries we have at the back currently, but I do think it's also important that he recruits a proper, technically capable centre-back rather than reverting to type and bringing in a Christophe Berra-esque hoofballer. Whilst our current squat boast some good options when fully fit, someone who can be a leader on and off the pitch and encourage us to keep the ball on the ground would be perfect. Such as shame Ivan Campo isn't playing anymore!

Any suggestions on who this might be, given who is available?!

Could he end up being Mick's "Jordan Rhodes".

Reading a Portsmouth FC forum, this was their assessment of his season:

"Finishing top of the league, here's a run down on the men who got us there: Matt Clarke.


Matt Clarke (Played 33 (0 as Sub) Scored 1):

What a steal this guy was. We had him on loan last season and saw just how good he was, to have him come in on a permanent deal at the start of the season was music to everyone's ears.

Once he recovered from his pre-season injury he took his place in the team and there was no moving him. An old fashioned, hard hitting centre back, built like a train and so good in the air.

If we can keep hold of him he will continue to be an asset in League One."

35 years old and is now a free agent.

Would you take him?

A little harsh I think. Where does everyone else think our stadium should rank?
3,000 suspected extremists known to the authorities in the UK...
at 09:29 25 May 2017

That was the number published this week, and Abedi was among them.

My question, therefore, is this...

Why are these people on our streets and roaming freely among our communities?

If there's enough of a suspicion, lock them away. For me, conspiracy to commit a terrorist act, association with terrorist organisations and incitement of terrorism should all carry long custodial sentences. It shouldn't get to the stage where they're making bombs or carrying out atrocities. It shouldn't get that far.

I get that some will slip through the net, and it's impossible to know every single potential terrorist, but if they're known to the authorities, and there is suspicion around them, get them off our streets.

Would it be completely inconceivable for me to dream of Daryl Murphy being back here for next season?

Needless to say he'll be at a Championship club somewhere next season. Newcastle will sign a couple of big name strikers and he will be surplus to requirement.

Lets hope we can have him back!

Mick has said there will be some big changes this summer. It sounds like there will be a bit of a spring clean, which is what the club needs as a number of players have stagnated in recent seasons.

Some players are ageing and not up to their former standards, some will be wearied by the negativity around this season, and some just haven't lived up to standards at all in their time here.

These are the players I think need to be moved on:


There are others who I'd also strongly consider - players who might have done a job, but are perhaps blocking younger, more talented players from getting their chance.
