We won't miss Clough in this league. He plays well once every 5 or 6 games.

ALF will be a better partner for Madine.

The next time we have a free kick on the edge of the box, we might just wish he was still in white
No Ameobe No Clough No flair ?

I really don't understand the Trotter one, given that:

(A) He's out of contract come July

(B) He's supposedly one of the ones on daft money

(C) He's injured quite a lot of the time

and

(D) He's shite.

Why on earth are we keeping him?

Surely, even if the fee was negligible, it'd be better to get him off the books ASAP.

Odd.

Am I right in thinking that overall we've gained two young and allegedly pacy wingers on loan, ALF plus £3 million but lost Clough who has a comparable goal scoring record to ALF i.e. 1 every 3 games? 

If so it sounds a bit like short-termism - a cash building exercise as much as team building. TBF it's probably needed but our failure to get the dead weight off the books may cost us. There will be a lot of pressure on ALF to do the business and fire us into the Championship and if we get there it will be a chance to review the squad again.

Getting there is a big IF. It's all downhill now I'm afraid, mid table at best after the last two league performances.

A change is as good as a rest. Other teams had sussed our way of play, hence the downturn in performances, but bringing in new players could well be just what we need. Its good to see ALF back.

Wanderlust, you keep making this "comparable goal record" claim, but that hides the fact Clough was a bit of a lazy bugger and ALF is an all out 100% effort kind of guy.

We'll improve with ALF.

Did someone really offer for Trotter, or is it just a rumour?

Like you say, why on Earth would ANY offer be turned down for that useless stump.

We'll improve with ALF.
Hopefully we'll improve enough to get promoted because that seems to be the £3 million gamble. Doesn't detract from the fact that we don't score enough goals and that ALF doesn't score any more frequently than Clough does therefore if we are going to improve it will come down to a change in style of play (not likely with Parky) or that Long and Viv a) actually get to play and b) play better than their predecessors and chip in with a few goals themselves.
Clough will be scoring goals long after ALF has retired so whilst we may need the money to bridge our finances in the short term,  we will need a replacement when ALF's loan expires. In fact we'll probably need half a squad come the summer so promotion is needed to cover the rebuilding costs. 
If we don't get promoted this season and get stuck in this league we could be here for a while building around the likes of Proctor and the other players who will be returning. On that basis I think this year is our best hope so selling Clough perhaps indicates we are under the cosh financially rather than anything to do with squad building IMO.

ALF has scored his goals at a higher level than Clough.

He'll piss it at this level.

ALF's a proven goalscorer and now he has to do it all over again - even though he did nothing at Wigan recently.

Wigan meanwhile have had a punt on Omar Bogle who has been brilliant in the lower leagues and for Grimsby and I suspect he'll be able to step up to the Championship no problemo as he's such a beast. I guess the days of us gambling on young players to come good are suspended until we sort out our finances.
