imo, we will struggle to keep Jack Marriott
Next summer, yes...

Think we'll be OK in January though because Darragh will just price him out of the market.
ok gpwm, I hope you are right
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

May well be garbage but I love this time of year, as the speculation starts building. Transfer windows were a great invention.

Imagine what we could do with £4m...sell JM, go out and buy Jack Payne, Kieffer Moore, Bondy and a right-back, and have £££ left over.

Or how about 3.5 million in Dmacs pocket and 500k to spend on long contracts for more non league rubbish!
When you consider how much the club owes Darragh (and I'm not part of his Twitter fawn club) you can't blame him for taking any of it back. That said I don't believe there's any evidence that he does that. Unless you know differently? Given the success we've had with signing Grant and Taylor it proves that a bit more experience blended with some of our better younger talent would seem to be the right way forward imho
Couldn't agree more! the most consistent performers this season by far have been Grant and Taylor, our most senior players. Ideally we could do with signing an attacking box to box midfield player and an experienced league one centre forward if we are going to make any late challenge on promotion this season.
Unfortunately our manager/chairman seem to prefer gambling on inexperienced attacking players and I expect this will be proven once again when the transfer window opens in January.

Disagree.

We rarely sign from League 1 and we never sign experienced strikers. It's not gonna happen. It's not the club's philosophy.

Miller will be off, Morias will be back.

Go buy Kieffer Moore!

I feel we're crying out for a target man...but we rarely sign them.

We certainly need more creativity from midfield...and Darragh has spoken about a RWB.

3 in...and a couple of squad players out I reckon.

We need first team regs though, not players for the future.

If it means we have to sell one asset to get three good'uns in, go for it.

Not sure that will work anymore tbh. IMHO Holy Trinity worked partly because they were able to develop in L2 first but that isn't a luxury we have (although our form would seem to have us heading that way) - these days we expect inexperienced players to hit the ground running in L1, which as Jor Jr has proved is too big a step up these days

I reckon darragh is still feeling burnt from having signed stuie's all-time favourite Posh target man to try that again

I agree John...We signed the best 3 players in non league 10 years ago and it worked but that won't happen again and it's a different situation for us now.

As Chompy said...We need signings good enough to go straight into the side in what is a tough league one.

"Posh boss Grant McCann also attended the AGM. He confirmed he is seeking a ‘different sort’ of striker in January."

Can only mean one thing, if it's a different sort to Jack and Junior. BIG! 6'5" Kieffer please. Or Eisa, who's also over six foot.

Financial fair play means it's likely we'll be able to extend Bondy's loan though. So be it. Conor is plenty good enough.

that all sounds good, there was a theory that we do not employ tall strikers, as it encourages Posh to play long balls, and this conflicts with our playing policy

however, with Marcus's assists, this can only be a good thing

Unfortunately Tyronne, is now past his sell by date (I hear you others muttering, did he ever have one)
