A Striking Signing for Sam
Chris should do well

So we received a 5million offer for Michael Ricketts Id take it! OK, its the not the figure the club want, and it certainly isnt the cash that some of the media have been quoting, but 5million in these time is a lot of cash. Times have changed, and days of really big money deals will be few and far between. Its about buying and selling and balancing the books, but Its a buyers market and I think the side could have been significantly strengthened if wed taken the cash.

With Henrik Pederson leaving the club, Chris Armstrong my old partner during our Millwall days has joined us. Hes a good acquisition and although hes not presently fit, hell push likes of Ricketts and Holdsworth and well see the benefit. Chris has been sent to Belgium where hell get about ten days of intensive fitness training. Hell come back much the better for it, but we need to give him time, hes missed a lot of football and his sharpness only show when hes had a few games under his belt.
