    We have usually left in late in the transfers each season and some times had the crap others never wanted. Hope fully now we have some good ones

    Well done Lyndy, you will be able to have some rest soon... :p

    So Derek has brought in 10 new players....and today is the start of training.....he is well ahead of last years rebuilding.

    1 new keeper.....(season's loan)
    5 new defenders.
    2 new mid-fielders.
    2 new strikers.

    Only one loanee at present.

    At the moment it looks like Yann Songo'o and maybe Alex Battle have not signed new contracts.

    Hasn't signed for any one presumably. When you "seen" do you mean socialising or training? Are they training yet? Surely not.

    In any event, if he is clubless, it would be the right thing to do to let him start pre-season with PAFC.

    To be honest wasn't expecting that now. Still, think he is a useful fallback and has done quite well for us. Shouldn't have to play in the back four this season. Is better just in front as the break up man. Glad he has decided to stay.

    Just had a tally up.....31 names on the list.....ok some will be seen as Apprentices/trainees.....and I wouldn't leave out the possibility that Ainsworth and Wylde might be loaned out....not sure about what is happening with Alex Battle.....and we could be losing Michael Cooper...not sure yet how that will pan out....if he did go would we then need an experienced third keeper on the books.....I would think that Max Childs would be well down the pecking order.

    By the way, best news of summer is that I saw a Tweet from Ryan Edwards. He's going into pre season training with the rest.

    It looks like Michael Dunford will be returning as PAFC's Chief Executive Officer.....He has just resigned a similar position at Chesterfield and will be leaving in July.

    Dunford still lives in Plymouth so he will have no problems relocating.

    Derek Adams is saying that he will bring in one more player this summer.....a midfielder on loan will be his final signing.

    No bleddy commitment you people.....................There's you on your hols before the transfer window shuts and that bleddy Riley bloke not interupting his wedding by jumping straight on a train and rushing down here. "go for it" by text indeed. If she's going to be a WAG then she should realise where his loyalty and commitment should lay. You just can't get the staff these days.

    Lyndy can go on hols...no problem....but if he starts kissing the badge....look out trouble... he might be off to a bigger club.

    I've bookmarked this post Sensible so I can easily refer to it when needed.

    Ryan Brunt signs up for Bath City....wish him well....it's time he had some good luck.

    Still remember his thunderbolt equalizer near the end of a terrible away game at Dagenham (93rd min)......Joe + son and I were right behind the goal that day against the bottom of the league Dag & Red.....who were terrible....I think Carey picked up an injury that day and had some time out.

    PS.....just checked,....Carey missed 7 games and only came on as a sub for his first two back.

    Brunt luckily came on for him and scored.

    I remember Dag & Red had a tricky little winger who was buzzing around like he was on Duracell batteries....he literally disappeared up his own bum with his impression of Stanley Matthews.

    Just checked again.....Jodi Jones....went to Coventry in 2017.
