Defty and Joachim are likely to sign.

And who's going to pay JJ's wages, is Super Sonic Sotnic on his way back?  ;D

I would imagine Joachims wages would have to fall within budget if he did come back.Personally,I'd sooner have Defty.

Joachim is past it. He only scored 8 goals in 39 appearances for King's Lynn last season. That's about as good as Jon Froggatt was for us. Jon Rowan was twice as good with 16 in 37 and I dare say he would be a lot cheaper than Joachim.

You're welcome to Joachim. Wasn't interested at all last season.

Defty would be a blow to lose always difficult for defenders to handle and pops up with his fair share of goals. Mind he struggled to get to training at Lynn and he only lived 5 minutes from the ground so not sure how often he'll make it for you!!

There is a great local talent going to pre-season, just wait until the end of the month/start of July and Im sure he will have signed and will definatley create and score goals next season.

JJ never been a profilic goalscorer. Was always difficult to find the best position for him.
Personally I'd put him in an advanced midfield role, supporting the forward(s). You would like to think his experience would prove to be useful at this level.

Let's see if he signs first  ;D

Can't see JJ signing however i no they have been looking at him as he has said he is willing to take massive pay cuts to what he used to be on!!

Regardless of wages, didn't the managers say something about not having ageing players on the books? Or have I been misinformed?

Yes they did, they also said they wanted players that gave 100% even if not the most gifted. No offence to Julian but he has never been 1 to track back and put in tackles and has relied on skill and pace rather than hard work. So I can't see it myself. Personally don't think he is the right player to be bringing in for this league and surely we must stop this obsession with former players, usually it doesn't works going back for a second spell.

They said they won't have a team full of over-30s
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

Which team or teams has he played for? how old is he?
