Here we have a piece answering your questions. Thanks to everyone who submitted a question! I will be doing more of these as the season goes on, so keep your eyes peeled for chances to ask away.
First up, @LeeReyn46555467 and @Holly24L have asked Fitzwater and Wilson released from WBA should we look at signing them? and Is there any players we’re looking to sign? Simple answer to both is no, although no doubt Clarke has his eye on the players he would like to sign. At the moment, I think a lot of clubs will be waiting to see when the new season will officially start before jumping in to the transfer market. There have been some clubs that have made signings, but I can foresee a slower start than usual. At present, none of the rumours I have seen making the rounds have any substance to them. I have seen pages linking us with Fitz, but for me, both him and Wilson are from a time at the club that many want to move away from, both club and the players themselves. I also feel Fitzwater will want to be playing at a higher level than League 2. Wilson? He has two relegations from League 1 in two seasons. Obviously he is not the reason for both of those, but I didn’t see anything in his spell with us that makes me think we should be after him.
@joshrainer8 has asked – Out of all the players you have seen been released from other clubs which ones would you sign? There are three that spring to mind, although I have not really looked at those that have recently been released. I have said before that I feel we should be looking at a stronger, defensive minded CM, even with Sam Perry coming through the ranks. Gillingham have released Ousseynou Cisse, who was previously at MK Dons. It didn’t quite work at Gillingham for him, but his spell at MK Dons was very good. He also went out on loan at Leyton Orient in January, where he shone, and he could be exactly what we need, should he want to permanently drop into League 2. I always have been a big fan of Otis Khan. He was awesome for Yeovil a couple of years back, but has had a less successful spell at Mansfield, mainly due to him playing in several different positions, and coming off the bench. He can play as a CAM, but also out wide, and I feel he could really add something to the team. Finally, I think Harry McKirdy could add something to our team, however I feel it is in a position we wont be looking to strengthen. He scored 5, and assisted 4 in 28 games for Carlisle this season, which is not bad stats given the club he was at. There are question marks over his attitude, but I think he could be a good curveball.
Our final question of the week goes to @LeeReyn46555467 – Out of the play off contenders in the national league who do you think will be joining Barrow to league two and who would you prefer to have away day trip to for me Notts county. Well, looking at those in the play-offs, I would probably say Barnet. Out of the teams that would be ‘new’ away days, I would say Harrogate, as I have been to Borehamwood before. But as someone who lives in London, Barnet would be a very convenient away day. Basically, anyone but Notts County…
There we have it. A very mixed bag of questions this week. Thanks again to all of those who contributed, and I look forward to seeing what you will thrown at me soon!
