We need two I reckon, both at least 6ft 4, mobile, comfortable with the ball at their feet and with at least 3 years experience at NL or above. Then with Kyle and Tai we are sorted (Barrows as utility back up)

Can't see we have the budget for 2 new centre halves plus McFadden, Fleming and Barrows.  Last year IC went with a much bigger squad than in previous seasons, possibly due to the COVID compressed fixture list, and we ended spreading the budget with lots spent on players that didn't even make the bench most weeks.  I think we have to be smarter this season going back to that smaller core squad model and then make better use of the loan market if injuries arise.

For me, I would be happy with one additional experienced centerback (the lad from Ipswich might be out of our reach but something similar) and then maybe a loanee.  If Fleming is retained then we really ought to be looking to loan him out to get game time as I would be surprised (disappointed) if he was part of the matchday squad come August.

Personally don't think that is sufficient for us to stay in the league Tony. We will want to play 3 centre backs in some games (Kyle plus 2) and will need a back up on the bench(Fleming). Barrows is particularly useful as he could play anywhere along the back line.

All quiet on the Western (Norfolk) front today......not too surprising after yesterday's sobering news.

I guess IC will be determining his "Retained List" this week.

I personally think the next new addition might be a centre half....any thoughts?

Hence the case being heard in Crown Court rather than Magistrates. Just for perspective in a Magistrates Court sentencing appears to be of the order of up to 5000 fine and /or a max of 6 months ... and of course he may yet be found not guilty/acquitted

That's obviously potentially very serious

Bit of a strange and dramatic statement.........normally you would expect things to be sorted out in house and then one full and final statement made public

Maybe he'll have a harmonica with his spare gloves in the back of the net and play the intro to 5-4-3-2-1 every time we score :laughcry:

Although a bit short of first team action recently, he has great pedigree, a past connection with IC and is a decent frame and 6ft 3.........looks a very useful signing..........wonder if we will look to keep Richardson as number two, or will we still be relying on Bazza as back up.

Really hope we are not doing it on that basis. In recent times our friendlies have been pretty poor .

Still think his partnership with McCauley was the best we have had at centre half in recent times.

Sadly neither of them are quite good enough for NL IMHO.
