So far there's not been any additions to the squad, hopefully this will change once the manager takes up his post at the end of his holiday.
Assuming that Timi is going to leave the recruitment of an imposing centre half is essential, as are creative midfielders and pacy forwards to replace Mols. Pretty much players for every position!
I wonder if we'll see any recruits from North of the Border.

With the trip to Portugal scheduled for 27 June, there will be less than 2 weeks to assemble a meaningful squad.
Or will this turn out to be similar to the last foreign training camp during Colin Cooper's tenure when the group consisted mainly of trialists few of whom were ever seen in blue and white!

There was that Irish lad Challinor signed from Scotland but he decided to go back to Scotland after a few months. Dont remember his name.

Still quiet!
I wonder if PH is finding recruiting players to the North East as great a problem as many of his predecessors and several managers at our neighbouring clubs?
Generally, the impression is that players will only come to the North East for excessive wages or as an absolute last resort if nobody else will take them.
Time will tell, but it isn't looking promising.

Certainly looking like PH has recruited some solid performers for the upcoming season. It would appear that he identified the lack of physical presence from his one visit to the Vic to see Pools out muscled by Colchester last season.

However, there is more work to be done as Pools still don't have enough players for a matchday squad.
I'm assuming that there will be a number of "trialists " on the plane to Portugal, and a few loanees to be recruited before the close of the Transfer Window.
