    But Kyle Magennis' is. Which is what pod was referring to I think you'll find...

    Some memory has Tommy - 9 years after seeing the 15/16 year old Marwood he was desperate to get him...

    Stubbs' reputation is one of playing good football, so I would expect these guys to be able to pay a bit, as well a being able to handle themselves physically. Not saying they'll all definitely work out but Stubbs will have looked for footballing ability before size.

    Aye, I think the point stands though that he has been playing at a higher level than us for the past few seasons so is hardly a poor signing as is being implied.

    McGinn, whom we released and who then went on to play at a better level/standard of football than our club has over the past 3 seasons? Will you eat humble pie if these players from the National League do well for us? Or will you be reluctant to give praise to them having already condemned them?

    Tragic, and so sad at such a young age. RIP

    Why not give the signings - and the manager - a chance before slaughtering them?

    I am personally suggesting they could be. In fact there's absolutely no reason why they can't be. Like you say, give them a chance.

    Surely TC wouldn't say anything silly?

    Cooke is being brought in as a striker, as that's where he impressed at the V9 Academy trials, and where he blossomed after switching from midfield. I think and hope it will be a case of competition for places, with no place secure unless you're delivering the goods.

    Inverness signed 8 players from the national league in 13/14 and finished 5th that season. Motherwell made a profit of around £2 million on players signed from non-league on the likes of Marvin Johnson, Ben Henighan and Louis Moult. The talent is there if the scouting is good. Give these guys a chance.

    Converted to a striker a year or so ago, with great results apparently.

    You're spot on, but experience is also important. We do have decent experience in the team, I'd just like to see maybe a bit more brought in to supplement the raft of non league players from England. I'm positive about their arrivals as it can be a goldmine of undiscovered players, especially at our level. Maybe an experienced centre back, as Mackenzie has shown that he struggles to stay fit for a full season. I think we might be seeing a new keeper come in as well.

    My thoughts precisely. Hope for some experienced guys in now. Interesting to note that all our signings from down south are 6 foot plus. I know Jack had mentioned that was something we needed to improve on, the size of the team. Seems Stubbs agrees, and hopefully we'll be more adept at set pieces next season, which could be crucial for us in tight games.

    It's a gamble bringing in non league players, but it has worked for other clubs in the recent past, and Heaton in particular looks a great prospect, given the teams keeping tabs on him. Obviously more experience required, but these guys will be highly motivated to do well for us and give themselves a chance to higher in the game.
