Most contracts finish on the 30th of June -might explain a bit why it's been a bit slow... I reckon lots of players are on their holidays somewhere as well.

I can’t remember it being this slow in previous pre- seasons.- only two players signed up so far. Presumably agents are driving a particularly hard bargain, this time around.

As it stands we have only 11 senior players- with pre- season training less than two weeks away, and our first senior friendly- Swansea around five weeks off.

The re- assuring thing is that only four league one clubs have signed more players than us.

Perhaps it’s going to be the same thing as time spent at a bus stop ? Wait for ages, and then several come at the same time.

Combination of factors really. Season ended a bit later so players still on holiday. A lot of clubs are financially tighter this summer so if they wait later into the window, wage demands will drop from players without a club. There’s also the fact the Euro’s are on. That will affect squad planning / transfers at a higher level and will have a trickle down effect.

Basically, I wouldn’t worry. Two in already and by the murmurs on Twitter another one potentially following today.

You should see the Pompey fans complaining about the same thing.

Alot of players are not out of contract with there teams till 30th June . You can sign players that have been released early but if we are signing players that still have a contract till 30 June we can't official annouce it

Not sure I agree with this. We announced Dan Scarr who was contracted til June 30th with Walsall and was offered a new deal by them.

Scarr and Wilson have contracts with previous clubs until June 30, yet have been announced.

You can make an agreement with players whose contracts are expiring one month before expiry, which we have done with Scarr and Wilson.

Confirmed on PAFC twitter
A left-sided centre-back who is a threat in both boxes, Gillesphey joins Argyle after a very successful spell in Australia.

It must be a player already in the UK because Brexit rules mean we now have no chance of signing players from abroad.
Ive heard off one of my friends its Macauley Gillesphey from brisbane roar

Thanks Matt :clap:

Must admit I’d never heard of this guy ( and that’s generally a good sign with Argo signings)- having watched him on YouTube- I’m quite impressed :scarf:

So that's three new CBs plus Tomlinson and I expect a loan defender to arrive for additional cover.

RL said he was starting at the back with signings, so, will we see a new keeper soon as cover for Cooper?

Don’t judge players from YouTube!

Left sided centre half ticks the boxes! Think we’re well covered in the LWB area could do with another RB/RWB now IMO.
