The Polish keeper was playing for Airbus UK in the Welsh Premier League prior to coming to us - third in the pecking order, young and no doubt cheap to retain.

Again, the likelihood is a massive financial squeeze is looming - can we afford to retain 3 keepers and is there a need ? - always dip into the loan market if the first two become unavailable - there will no doubt be a vast choice out there.

The only keeper I personally would retain is Lainton.

He was playing lower than that in the Cymru Alliance.

That just shows how lowly we are. Dibble isn't good enough either. I agree, keep Lainton, and get a loan in when needed.

Was it Rose who when we played at Notts County absolutely run our midfield ragged (not difficult). Looked real good at getting the ball and moving it forward.
Yes Rose...everything went through him and he was constantly runnng into spaces , taking it forward or moving it to the left where they had another good player causing problems..Best player on the pitch that day.

I'm also struggling to see how anyone is offering contracts to players...Effiong has gone to Stevenage today...I think we will be very much loanees if we start a season..

A case of bargain basement signings from the 'spares and repair' tin.

I can see the return of Ollie Kearns and Arfon Griffiths looming on the horizon.

Player budget - how can a club (not just us) contemplate bringing in players on either fees and wages when we have no real income and don't even have a date when income can commence ?
No season ticket sales to get the club through summer, no early bird option - and my prediction is that even when they commence there will be a shocking drop in numbers compared to previous years - partly through dissalusionment but partly because many supporters especially the elderly and for health fears wont set foot in the stadium - a play it safe approach.

As for putting a squad together my prediction is that clubs will play the ultra cautious card and cut back on numbers dramatically. What is the point in building a large squad of better quality players on high wages when we have no prospect of a resumption date.

And I hate to say it but I will anyway - today Boris Johnson is easing restrictions based on the number of deaths and infections dropping - but the virus hasn't gone away and wont until the masses are vaccinated - the chance of another spike are high especially as we approach winter - with many people spending much time outdoor in the fine weather and long daylight hours what will happen in December when we are all couped up together ?

What are the chances of another season starting and even being completed ?
Personally I don't see any change in the situation other than infections have currently dropped in numbers - for now. Like many things in life people will become complacent and forget - human nature kicks in and bang - we could be back to an even more catastrophic 'square one'. A balance has to be struck to keep the economy going and to safeguard jobs - assembling a football squad of quality at Wrexham is a bit of a pipedream.

Similar to gyms, leisure facilities, sporting arena's and football clubs - the Government will need to make their case before anything realistic can happen - though have a feeling sport and leisure will be last on the pecking order.
This , IMO, is an excellent post. I was talking the other day about fans attending ganes and the sale of on line tickets only may be an option. Tickets with designated seats situated minimum 2 or 3 apart. Still leaves the logistical nightmare of ,as you say, toilets,snack bar etc . Its certainly a challenge. BTW, I do think this hospitality return is far too soon. Convinced they are making it up as they go along.

Right - Get rid of Dibble and the young lad and get just one reserve goalie. Recruit proper full backs who are primarily skilled at defending and may just be able to get to the half way line.
Build a centre defence around the Pizza man! Ideally very tall and more mobile than we have seen recently. There must be a fair amount of these sorts being booted out of league clubs.
Midfielders who can pass a ball to colleagues. Perhaps one who is the steel in the team that brings a balance. Redmond to be loaned out if he cannot improve.
A winger that has true speed and is prepared to beat a full back, would be lovely. A real, physical centre forward in the Jim Steel cast would give options to attack. Perhaps we already have a few creative types who can play along with these.
In my squad, there is just no room for Akil Wright or Rutherford either. I'm dreaming again!

Adam Marriott. 42 goals in 49 for Kings Lynn Town according to Wikipedia. 28 goals last season. Could be worth checking out a few of their games last season to see if he’s worth a try.

The spares and repairs will need a VERY big tin for the restart.

The same Kings Lynn that just got promoted to our league? No chance of this chap. There's probably someone in the Scottish 4th tier who scored 10 goals though.
