I wouldn’t be surprised if they are hoping a couple of clubs go bust so there will be a fire sale on players and cheaper wages offered to them as well as our current players. When it comes to cheap skate we are top of the league.

Wouldn’t mind that Tom Pearce at Wigan as a LB option. He was quite highly rated at Leeds and he seems to be a standout player in a poor side at present. His left footed balls into the box are on a plate for the attackers.

Ormskirk born too, would know the area and the training ground well. I’m sure we could nip in with a derisory offer whilst things are still up in the air.

If the so called big four leave in January, I do hope that we will have some players from outside of the club lined up to replace them as the January transfer window is creeping up . In saying that I wouldn’t be surprised if we go with the players that are already at the club.

Given it took us three years to replace Hugill I wouldn't count on it.

I can’t see a club willing to pay any sort of fee in January for players out of contract in 6 months.....especially players that haven’t really set the world alight with their recent form.

For anyone “in the know”, is the manager a factor for some of the players not signing?

Or is it simply the level and wages and ambition by the owner?

If the latter, Hemmings needs to get his business head on:
1) Sign up all 4 on higher wages, no transfer fees.
2) Let all 4 go, fork out for 8 players for small ish fees, some with medium wages some small, plus the compo getting rid of 4 of them because they cant cut the mustard.
3) Pay 4 large fees to match the quality of the 4 and then wages on top.

Business head would say option 1, i suspect we will end up with option 2.

Happens a lot, people will pay for their needs then and now, or to steal a march if they can be outbid on wages in free agency- we did it with Moult, for instance.

That said, with Davies and DJ both attracting interest from Scotland, they could sign pre-contract details and be done.

At our level there won’t be much money splashing around in January for players who haven’t really set the world on fire recently.
I fear this will fester until the end of the season unfortunately.

That what agents are for though. If the owner wanted them gone, they'd be gone- they all have suitors for the right price.

We are in a different era Hunter....there will be suitors but not many with money at our level.
Trev has got us & himself in a right mess....the value of his prized assets have collapsed and unless he sees sense they will all leave for nothing in seven months......on the bright side Cloth Cap was a cracking winner for him today 🏇🏻

Oh aye, they'll not be close to what they would have been in summer or before that. But there are always clubs looking to gamble on that boost to save their season, or to get that final promotion push.

Do we know where Harrop was today ?

He's clearly on the periphery but surely must be injury or illness if O'Reilly was on the bench instead of him.

Was Harrop just signed up to get a fee in January or next summer? Seems he's gone out of 18 for some reason since he signed the new deal!

Some really strange decisions being made at the moment.

There’s 2 ways at looking at this. IF the ‘big 4’ are allowed to move on for free TH could lose the current value of those players, but the fact is those players combined cost PNE less than £1m. I don’t think TH will be too concerned if they all walk away as TH will probably tell the Manager (whoever that maybe at the time) to replace them with Free transfers or players from the lower end of the market.

The club have talks themselves up at times or at forums saying what wonderful deals they got on the likes of DJ and Browne.

Yet they somehow may even manage to make a loss on them. It is remarkable really.

What happened to the policy of picking up young rough cheap diamonds? Hugill, Robinson, DJ, Pearson?

Previously as a club we were proud of this type of recruitment? We need investment at all levels, we need players to come into the first team and improve it immediately and then some to develop. Our transfer policy is just shocking.

It’s significantly harder to do that in the championship because you’ve got to develop them in a tougher league. We were able to mould Robinson and hugill against poorer opposition when they weren’t great and turn them into top players.

We can’t do that anymore. Also those players were all developed by Grayson. I’m not sure I would be confident neil could do the same
