We have twenty two players so the stand will be filling up with more it seems. Players who have signed on with the usual cliches expecting a game and being here for the "Gaffer" will instead be sitting and watching . Groundhog day is coming.

Sorry Horlick but 22 players is a very small squad at this level, I'd wager the average is 25 or so across the league as you need cover for injuries and suspensions.

22 is fine imo.

If things get very bad injury wise there are youth or loans. But we can only use 14 in a match, so we will eight unused every week. More than enough cover given some can play multiple positions.

How many players was it Accrington used? 15 or something?

I must have missed the memo saying loans won’t be allowed during the January transfer window.

Would you be one of the happy eight + plus sitting on their arse Robin? Footballers want to play.Too many sitting around and trouble brews.

Like I said look at the average squad sizes and ours is currently one of the smallest so your argument doesn't appear to hold water.

Why not? Do you always do what other people do? Regency gave the example of Accrington. That holds water. There is no law that says 28 players in a squad has to be more succesful than 22. At least the Manager has said in the past that he does not like squads to be too big and I agree with him.

Re Wroe, Fylde are trying to sign Shankland from Ayr for £150k as a replacement but Ayr are holding out for the £250k Dundee are allegedly about to offer. This is according to my source north of the border. As the Scottish deadline is a couple of weeks away, Ayr can stall this for longer than we want them to. I emphasise this is only a rumour in the press.

Sounds promising that Flyde are looking for replacements.

I wonder, if the permanent deadline passes and Fylde hadn't got a replacement, if we might end up signing Rowe on loan until January with the permanent signing going through in January. If Rowe is as keen on the move as has been mentioned.

The deadline does not apply for Flyde only us.

That doesn't make any difference. We would still only be able to take him on loan until January if Fylde don't let him go today because they haven't yet got a replacement.

It makes a difference as Flyde have longer to sign a permanent replacement than we do.

That makes it easier for them to hold us hostage for money right up to the deadline.

We could have managed this the way Liverpool managed the Torres/Carroll deals. They told Chelsea that to sell Torres they needed enough to buy Carroll from Newcastle and make £15m. Ball was in Chelsea’s court and they basically negotiated with Newcastle who had Chelsea over a barrel. Eventually Newcastle agreed to let Carroll go to Liverpool for £35m so Chelsea had to stump up £50m for Torrres.

Had we not done Lee Johnson a family favour with Mo we could do the same today: tell buyers we want £1.5m plus Rowe. So if Fylde want £200k whoever bought Mo would need to fork out £1.7m etc. That would mean we ended the day either with Mo or with his replacement. As it stands it looks like we will end with neither unless we give in to paying silly money.

Yes, that's my whole point. If we don't sign him today because Fylde haven't found a replacement, but then do sometime in the next few weeks, would we sign Rowe on loan with a deal in place to sign him permanently in January.

Rumour that Tranmere or Bristol Rovers could yet scupper any deal CTFC were hoping to achieve (which is what Fylde Chairman was probably hoping would happen):

although Tranmere fans say the Club don’t have the money to pay the wages.

Bristol Rovers have just splashed out on a striker from Shrewsbury, Stefan Payne, so I would imagine that's them done.

Could Tranmere afford the fee let alone the wages? Bristol Rovers would be my worry they are desperate for a striker.

JP tweeting that it looks unlikely the move for Rowe will be completed.

McCoulsky will no doubt come in now but is that really the answer?
