Do we have a scouting network ?
at 08:58 31 Jul 2017

This question comes to mind when I look at our signings (free transfers and loans from other clubs). I see other clubs around the championship and leagues one and two who seem to be able to buy either hot prospects who have either dropped from bigger clubs academies then made good performances at much lower level as they with their ways up through the leagues or some players who have scored 30 goals in a league below the conference, so the club are taking a gamble of course.

All we seem to do is "get bodies in" as mick so eloquently puts it when we usually get three months in to the season and our playing staff looks decidedly thin what with long term injuries and the fact he has usually loaned out all of our potentially good up and coming youths to conference or lower teams by then.

I just wonder if we genuinely have a network of scouts unearthing potential we are able to take a gamble on or has mick just got a little red book with his contacts in from Ireland wolves and the like?
Bjorn Johnsen (Hearts) striker sign him up

I saw a thread asking what strikers we should sign then I remembered this guy at hearts. Every time I have seeing hearts play this season on tv he has looked like a real prospect. He is a tall talented hard working striker who would definitely be in our price range and belongs to a club we have dealt with in the past via the Berra signing. I definitely think mick should buy this guy he scores a lot of the time I have seen them.
Robbie Keane anyone?

I read he is a free agent and is coming to a club in the uk before the end of the transfer window. He has got almost all attributes for Mick to sing him : Irish, over 30, a free transfer, experienced, a character only thing letting him down is his height but Mick did sign Steven Hunt.
Tim Sherwood please

A good young English manager who likes his team to play football getting the ball down and passing it. He likes developing young talent giving youngsters the chance to play. Exactly what this club needs now. This hoof ball Sunday football that we have been forced with has got to go along with anyone else who believes in it.

Do we have a game plan? We don't have a style. Marcus Evans and Mick McCarthy have ruined this club.
