The usual stuff
Are Moorhouse and Lussey still available for this one?
Lussey wasn't in Spain as far as im aware. He didn't play in the game anyway. Moorhouse I believe his trial expired after this weekend.
He was there but didn't play the first game got some reason.
Hope we sign Moorhouse tomorrow.
Useful squad player to have (especially if Biamou gets injured) and will be keen to have an impact in English football.
He seems to have impressed. Is he under contract in Ireland? Would a small fee need to be agreed first?
Wouldn't mind Lussey either. Seems he was only playing non league as Brentford missed a deadline for signing him/pulled out last minute so he had to make a decision on playing somewhere (according to the Southport manager, not sure how true it is). We need a bit of depth in midfield and would imagine he'd be a low cost gamble who seemingly has the potential to player higher than he was last year.
Also think Moorhouse offers something different with his pace.
I saw Lussey at Sutton and he didn't stand out to me. Not to say he wont in future but he looked no better than Stevenson or Shipley who he would be competing with. I would rather use the funds to find a wide midfielder as I feel we are still lacking here.
Think it'll probably come down to how they've both done in training.
If he was anywhere near Stevenson level (and as ex captain of Scousers youngsters, you'd think he ought to be) then if we can get him on board, he ought to be a good buy, especially as Stevenson may become a goodbye at some point (see what I did there?!)
Is this today?

Isn't Barnsley in Spain?
All I know is that they have a funny accent.
Second game fell through was an open training session in the end!!
Anyone going tonight?
Is it on the radio?
Was going but work too busy
Hope we put out the strongest side for at least 1 half, would be nice to see how well they can play together, before I make my prediction for the coming season.
I'm still undecided. Wife finishes work 4:30. I took her to work this morning so I can pick her up. But where she works is massive and can be held up by traffic. She can also be 5 minutes or more late getting out. And I have 7 and 8 year olds to look after until she takes over.
Route planner says 151 miles and nearly 3 hours. That is without peak time traffic on M6, M61, M60, M62 and the M1
It's just the same old show on my radio
Hopefully somebody can go and keep us up to date
I'm hoping he gives the trialists a decent run out.
Any injuries for this match?
I've got a slightly stiff neck
And I have done my groin in.
We haven't been told, but I think Haynes and the unfortunate Kwame Thomas are out. I suppose there are some doubts about the fitness of Stokes, DiKE who both had 'slight knocks' in training and did not play against Valenciennes and also Camwell, who was injured in that game. But hopefully those 3 will have recovered by now.
Yes me too. Moorhouse must already be close to proving he's worth signing. And Lussey should be given another chance to prove he's strong enough physcally and mentally for League 2.
what time kick off?
Mine is clearing up so I could be ok baring a last minute fitness check.
cool 2.45pm my time here so, im hoping moorehouse and ponti get another run
Moorhouse I would imagine, Ponticelli will depend on the fitness of Biamou..
I got cramp in my calf
If you're looking for a Football fix tonight and can't get to Barnsley, the U16's are playing at the Higgs Centre against Salford.
Had a look on Barnsley's site and there was no mention of any commentary so it looks like it will be following on here / twitter.
Be nice to see a trialist given a go at the back tonight as we need to find possibly 2 central defenders
