Good luck Liam, ironically he had a particular and unusually for him poor game at Chester (along with most of our boys!) and I think a few games later spent most of his last game against Solihull bending his knee the whole time 🧐presumably stretching his dodgy knee . Not sure if his terrible injury will stand up to the rigours of training and playing twice a week, but hope I’m proved wrong .

A fully fit Liam Edwards was a " no brainer" signing for SFC.
Liam Watson obviously (to me) has decided against pursueing his services permantly-which surely tells supporters everything? I too remember his horror show performance at Chester FC.
Good luck to him in the future.

Correct.
I have to ask what does it tell us ?. Is it that LW isn't going to gamble on a player who may not be fit enough to last the season (ie, a financial gamble for the club), or are you implying there is a lack of ambition by SFC ?.
By the way, I think he was a very good player....but !

I would expect that the reasoning is that he is injury prone, although an excellent player when fit

Portchat: We need a bigger squad to deal with injuries!
Also Portchat: We should be signing players with known injury problems!

He's not fit enough to last until September.

Good player but made of gravy.
Alan McDonald was more versatile than a Swiss Army knife.

According to the Blackpool Gazette, Blackpool's new boss, Michael Appleton will not include Doug Tharme in his 25 players in the official squad list. Apparently Appleton is looking to bring in 4 or 5 players and he needs to trim his squad to make this happen.

The Gazette article seems largely speculation on the reporters part

https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/spor ... et-3741481

Doug is mentioned as a player vulnerable to not making the 25 and there’s no quotes from Appleton in the article (and you can keep players who don’t make the 25). He’ll need to see what he’s got before bringing new players in of course but being bought by the previous manager & probably unknown to Appleton is difficult for him.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could get him back on loan.
