Lowe said in the fans forum that we were looking at a couple of attacking players but that they got snapped up before we could make an offer.
Is hoping to get a ‘seasoned’ player in on loan in next couple of weeks.
So if you thought two or three more players l don’t think that is happening.
With Law, Grant, and Galloway, and Cooper to return, I would be very surprised if we signed another LWB. Otherwise I agree, although I'm not sure Lowe is in the market for a CM.So what do we need?
If you look at the squad there's 15 outfield players currently fit enough to start the season and that includes Tomlinson but not Shirley.
I think we need a left wing-back who has good experience of playing that position.
Grant is not a dedicated LWB, Law is facing his first full season at Argyle and Cooper isn't fit.
We need another creative midfielder, we rely too much on Mayor and if he's out of form or injured we'll struggle. This could be a loan until January by which time our other creative player, Cooper, should be back.
I think we need another striker and something different to what we have, again another loan.
So I reckon 3 more players needed, a LWB, a creative midfielder and a striker.
Traditionally Lowe starts the season with at least 3 loan players and adds another 2 before the transfer window closes. This summer he's not shopping in the Premier League loan market so probably just two loans from the Championship and League One.
We don't just need another RCM as cover, I think we need one to start there. Camara is a fantastic athlete and so good at breaking up play, but he's next to useless in and around the area. With Mayor also goal-shy on the other side of midfield we need someone who can chip in with goals and assists on that right side.
Our midfield last season was almost certainly among the lowest in the league for goals scored and it's something we need to address urgently.
I know goalscoring midfielders don't grow on trees, but if we can't find a Friio or Castle then hopefully we can at least bring in a Mauge or Norris.
That's true, but I'll throw in a golden opportunity he had at Rovers when he was inside the area and had three Argyle players to pick out but cut it back straight to a Rovers defender. He does that a lot (mind you, so does DM).You say that, but when Pan came on the other night he picked out some excellent passes in the final third. Jephcott missed a 1-on-1 and Ennis missed a chance too. On another day he would've had two assists. I was critical of his end product last year, but decision making is something that improves with experience and I think he's got the potential to put up decent numbers. For me he should be first choice at RCM when the season starts. His positives far outweigh the negatives.
With Law, Grant, and Galloway, and Cooper to return, I would be very surprised if we signed another LWB. Otherwise I agree, although I'm not sure Lowe is in the market for a CM.
