But is Barrow a step up from Hampton & Richmond Borough FC, ie where he was before them....?

That seems unlikely. At least 5 professional clubs were tracking him last year so either he's shite or Barrow want silly money - neither scenario would suggest we should go after him.

Not had a rumour for a while but I guess it is going to be a busy thread over the summer.

Here is the first of many I suspect many!

Bolton to step up interest in Aberdeen star Niall McGinn - Exclusive

BOLTON WANDERERS will step up their interest in Aberdeen star Niall McGinn after they won promotion back to the English Championship yesterday.

The Trotters have been on the Northern Ireland winger’s trail for months and now have added financial muscle after they finished second in League One yesterday.

Phil Parkinson is keen to land the out-of-contract 29-year-old, and will be able to table an offer that could see them compete with fellow suitors Ipswich.

McGinn has made it clear he would prefer another crack at England and that is why he is unlikely to take up a contract extension at Pittodrie or a rival Bosman offer from Hearts.

League One side Fleetwood Town also guaranteed their place in the play-offs yesterday and will also come into the equation for McGinn if they join Bolton in England’s second tier.

Express Sport understands McGinn doesn’t want to agree his move until after the Scottish Cup Final against Celtic.

Massive risk to sign players from the Scottish league, we need to be looking at proven English talent.

Hipster agrees with me.

I thought our interest was because of McGinn's League 1 experience and the connection with Neil Lennon so I really hope this is old news being recycled to fill column inches.

Why then would the paper date stamp it and state the following...

Perhaps it's to try to make this rumour that was first published two years' ago come across like a new story?

Parkinson would be stupid to rush into making any signings before he knows what budget is available but I guess there is an end of season scramble for "news" so they might as well recycle this. I suspect this is the case as there is no direct quote from anyone associated with the club - just assertions by hacks wherever this has been recycled.

Of course it could be true, but I have a feeling it's journalistic license.

The big difference being that your link from TWO YEARS ago is speculation from the BOLTON paper and my link is an exclusive from YESTERDAY's, SCOTISH DAILY EXPRESS paper from their lead football writer!!!

You would imagine that the reporter who talks to the player is more informed that than poor old David Pye, who isn't even our regular football reporter on the Bolton Evening News!

Well I would anyway.

They are journalists Sluffy.
Not the most reliable people when it comes to sorting facts from speculation. Some of them have even created rumours in order to be able to discuss them in subsequent articles and eventually deny them in yet another article all of which churns out the column inches that they get paid for.
And as in this case, if one paper creates a rumour, other papers will repeat the story quoting the first paper as the source (this story was also in the Record and USA Today amongst others)

As I said, this rumour may be true but I'd be surprised if it is.

On balance I think Parkinson has been quite astute with the players he's brought in on loan or acquired on the cheap. During the season the opposition have fielded quite a number of players who have caught the eye and if they were available wouldn't cost the earth. I'd normally say wouldn't break the bank, but it's already broken as we know too well.
I can see him going for a few of these players as they would probably prefer to play in a higher division ,with bigger crowds and what ,even for the championship, is a fantastic stadium.
A few of his loanees haven't worked out, but many of them have.
I think he can build a respectable squad from what we've seen this season and give a decent account of ourselves next season.

He's been looked at as he's out of contract at Birmingham.

Another surprise contender is Glenn Murray who wants away from Brighton.

Both sound interesting on paper at least. I suppose it will (as always) come down to finances but I'm far from certain Murray will really want away given Brighton are now a premiership side unless of course he's been told he's not part of the manager's plans next season. Either man could certainly do a job at Championship level though.

Around Xmas, KA said that promotion would bring in an additional £6 to £7 million which would give us  a loss of £3 million on current figures, so if he intends to run at break even as stated and there are no new investors the transfer/salary budget could be increased by £3 to £4 million above current levels.

A lot of players are likely to leave, but the likes of Spearing and Wheater will probably expect a salary increase to stay as they now have a promotion on their CVs, so I'm not expecting too much to be available to attract quality. 

We have to operate on a firm financial basis going forward so perhaps the target for next season is no more than survival?

February? Why is it going to take so long? I expect it to be wrapped up by Christmas! Twisted Evil

If not then PP is clearly a failure. Laughing

PS in the 2018/19 season I demand Champion's League Qualification, victory in the FA and League Cups and a profit of 10 billion quid at the very least. Very Happy

Bury have already signed 3 players including Jermaine Beckford and transfer momentum is starting to pick up. Even Nigel Reo-Coker has got a move albeit to Norway. I hope Parky's getting busy.

Just checked out Marcus Maddison on Wiki as it's rumoured Parky is interested in the left sided player. Looks promising but it is Wiki and there is reference to him doing " a big fat poo poo" so I suspect it's not 100% reliable.

How much do we need Taylor?


Wigan captain Stephen Warnock is one of four players released by the club after their relegation from the Championship.

Left-back Warnock, 35, initially joined on loan last season before making the move permanent last summer.

Ex-Man Utd winger Gabriel Obertan, 28, goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, 42 and full-back Andrew Taylor, 30, are also released.

Midfielders David Perkins, 34, and Jordan Flores, 21, have been offered new deals by the managerless club.

After winning League One last season Wigan were relegated straight back to the third tier after finishing 23rd in the Championship.

PS, Warnock also played for Bolton in the past too!

Niall McGinn rumour again - obviously the media feel we are after a left-sided wide player.
