Agreed...we need to be spending the time, effort and limited financial resources we have on finding someone to score goals for the first team.

In all likelihood, it's a completely different budget and different negotiators. Haslam is Academy chief, he's probably dealing with this, not Monk and the recruitment team. Just because they're looking at a teenager for the future, doesn't mean it's taking any time/money away from their hunt for first team players.

You would think so if they were good enough but the way the U23 squad is looking at the moment up front U16s will get in the side.

Yes you would think they are different budgets.  Over the last few years we have signed players like this. Some just play for U23s. Occasionally you get a Lavery or Thorniley who make it to our first team after being  released by a club.

have you heard any other names at all as potential signings for the first team Joe? Don’t you think it’s worrying/strange how close to the season starting we are and we still only have Rhodes as our 1 striker.

Lad sounds a decent prospect for the U23 side. I wonder if we still haven’t signed anyone for the 1st team come the Cardiff game he will be promoted to the first team squad.

I haven't, no.

 

I think it's worrying that they're not through the door for sure. But just because we haven't heard anything doesn't mean there's nothing in the pipeline. They'll want things kept quiet because of how delicate the market is now. So yeah, I'm with everybody concerned at the lack of strikers, but will only get stressed once games are underway and we've not brought in.
