I'll be surprised if Hartley is still the Hartlepool manager by 2023. A Falkirk style disaster is looming there. 

As far as Paterson goes, he was nowhere near a priority for us so not fussed in the slightest that he's moved elsewhere.

Peterhead are part time and looking to sign part time players so no, I don’t think it applies to us.

Full time clubs are struggling to sign players as full time players are able to make more money playing part time and working full time

 

and....

 

Part time teams in the leagues are struggling to sign players due to clubs in the Lowland league being able to offer the same or more on wages.

 

This definitely effects us and probably every mid to bottom of the table championship side.

Not sure about that bud, dick as starting left back or 18 year old greig young 🤦🏻‍♂️

Paterson might well have turned out to be better than what we have at left back, but with the issues we have at centre back and centre forward, I'm quite happy to go with those two as our left back options if doing so gives us a bit more in the budget to look for a decent centre back and centre forward.

If Paterson isn't a championship standard centre half or centre forward, he wasn't priority.  Simple as.

I don't rate dick (insert Kenneth) but we did finish 5th with him as our lb last season. Lb isn't a key area for us to strengthen right now.

Are you sure about that????

This will be his 5th season in a row at this level, so I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that he probably is championship standard.

Over to Murray now. He has to get a central defender in to allow Dick to go back to left back and have Young as cover. A new centre back and Berra will be it as far as signings go in that position as he knows he can just utilise Dick at centre back if need be and Young at left back. Genuinely can't see us bringing in more than one central defender. Imo...

No one said Dick is a centre half, but he's playing there now until new players are brought in. I don't see any sensible suggestions for new central defenders and Patterson is not one either so no, his signing was not a priority

Amazing how a lot of our troubles could be fixed by signing a decent, young CB who would be a fan favourite and to top it all off, an international footballer. That would be ideal! 
 

*cough* Frankie Musonda *cough* 🤦🏻‍♂️
