As much as MK fans were admirers of Baudry the exact opposite can be said of their judgements upon D'ath.

Comments such as waste of space and headless chicken have been used, along with worst signing so far by Tisdale.

Another comment was that after his red card one poster said....with a bit of luck díath will be given an 8 game ban and not be available for the rest of the season.

Obviously didn't fit in at MK!

Always makes me wonder how shit these players really are. You could argue that since the playoff team under Cooper was sold off and or fell apart our transfer activity under the last two managers has been woeful and bordering on panic buying to make up the numbers. Which leads us to where we are now. Do any of you feel concerned about Wellens ability to put together a decent quality squad on a less than stellar budget? For me, iím very relaxed and excited about the team, itís prospects and next season in general. So any player that rocks up as a signing must have the stamp of approval from the management. Even a trialist has to have a certain level of ability to get the nod from the manager. I couldnít see him wasting his time on a Christmas stocking filler type player. As for fans of other teams gracious misery on players leaving, meh. Like a scorned ex girlfriend or wife AFAIC.

Could be just touting his own name around, asking to come into training with us as we're a local side for him.

I am quite excited by the team Wellens is putting together, more so than since the pre Cooper seasons.

We have seen enough quality in how Wellens wants us to play and almost every signing he and his team have made so far have been of a better quality than we have had in the last 3 or 4 years, almost to a man.

I think a lot of fans can see players that have talent and are triers and that always endears them to fans, they can also see players that are stealing a living being professional footballers, with little talent and commitment.

Fans aren't stupid (generally) and I don't think your last statement applies that often, I could be wrong but I think generally fans can see a half decent player.

It could be that hes a friend of Baudry who informed Wellens that he was a decent bloke and not a bad player so advised them to give him a chance to win a contract.

His desription from MK fans sounds very similar to fans of Coventry with Conor Thomas, James Dunne from Exeter and Cambridge fans and Jak McCourt from Chesterfield fans....all of which were not too far from the truth.

Nothing ventured nothing gained and all that.

As Reg will say (rightly) the proof will be in the pudding. I do agree though the players so far seem to be higher caliber than the last few seasons on paper. The optimism has been beaten out of me, so wait with interest. I'm actually looking at the fixture list again for upcoming games I want to get to. First time for a couple of years.

Itís all promising - but to state the obvious, we need goals. We havenít got them yet. Yates might, but has never been prolific so far. These next 3 signings are the key.

You get the feeling that for once recruitment has been done properly. So far seemingly no panic buys and the feeling we could actually start the season tomorrow with a pretty balanced squad, bar missing a couple of forwards. Wellens and Jewell appearing to work well so far, after a good January transfer window as well.

The communication from the club through social media and the adver has also been great and far from the nothingness of other pre seasons.

I canít wait for the season to start!!

Notts County and all who have suffered before them serve as the constant reminder that no fan can assume safety but County did make some dafter than daft decisions like sacking the manager who had done all their summer business within a few weeks of the season starting and getting rid their second in mid-November.

Say what you'd like about Power but he hasn't done that (or dick pics)............................................... yet.

I actually met an Exeter fan this winter.  He was in my bar and found out I was a Swindon fan, he said he and friends wanted Dunne back.  He was a personal friend of Matt Taylor and actually showed me pre-existing exchanges with him asking if there was any way they could get him back.

Horses for courses, I wouldn't begrudge someone like him a place in the squad assuming he was on a very performance based contract with a very basic salary.
