Left back from Plymouth
Looks like another good signing on paper!
I would not have expected him to leave it so late!
Hopefully this means Leahy can now play midfield where he is better suited.
If not for his injury, he would probably be a regular in the Championship this season. Plus apparently he has a long throw, which is a weapon we have utilised a lot more this season. Gone are the days of Beany’s throw in against Preston!
Sounds like a really promising signing.
So if Low is okay and Scowen is still out, possibly:
Grimmer Low Taffs Earley
Potts Leahy Butcher
Kone Vokes Sadlier
That still leaves out KVY, McCarthy, Taylor, Forino (if fit) and McCleary, among others.
Our squad is feeling stronger, that's for sure!
I’m reserving judgement until we’ve heard from @ArgyleOz
Stevenage fans assumed he was signing for them. Maybe he met their manager.
I hope Blooms isn’t contagious, don’t want these new guys going down with the lurgy.
Gasroom Komedy Saxon
Bit of Saxon eh? Wheels of Steel, Denim and Leather. Is rock n roll football back?
I've just seen the reveal video on the website, is it me or does it seem like we have a right-footed left back (not that there is anything wrong with that)
Plymouth website has him down as a wing-back. Hmm.
Too right! The best left-back of all time was right-footed.
oh, if you must…
JJ is right footed?!
Chris Vinnicombe was right footed..... right?
I had heard a lot of very positive comments about this lad from Argyle fans long before he came to us. If they are right could be a very good signing indeed.
Can’t let this go unchallenged…the best left back of all time is…
What would we give to have had him at Wycombe in his prime?!
We were lucky enough to have him at Wealdstone for 5 years. 176 appearances and 10 goals.
The Forest folk were even luckier of course 401 appearances and 63 goals.
Called into action to fix the floodlights during a game once, I believe?
I spent a lot of time in Norwich so I follow Norwich quite closely as well
Saxon Earley is a good player. A lot of Norwich fans were annoyed that he was sold to Plymouth
A excellent loan for us I'd say unless he's still injured!
If he's fit he would be in their championship team
Definitely played as a wingback for Plymouth.
Are you Dutch @Brodiej ?
Wycombe born and bred
I like my defenders who Never Surrender
Just thought I'd pop in to offer a Plymouth perspective on Saxon.
We signed him this time last year from Norwich, though he'd been on loan at Stevenage where he'd been playing left-back. Their fans were gutted to lose him and so was their manager. We played a back three at the time but he seemed to adapt pretty well to wing-back. He doesn't have electric pace or fancy footwork but he is a natural defender - aggressive in the tackle and positionally sound. He even managed to grab a couple of goals for us by being in the right place at the right time.
We started this season playing a back four and it looked like Saxon would be a semi-regular member of the team. He played really well in a 0-0 draw at Watford in August but we haven't seen him since. If he can rediscover his fitness then you've got a very good player.
Nigel Lonwijk is another promising talent. He's very comfortable on the ball but he does occasionally lack focus and he made a few costly errors for us last season. That said, he was playing his first proper season of senior football and in a team who played high-risk football from the back. I liked him and think he'll do well for you.
Butch, meanwhile, is a solid pro who won't let you down. He's one of those steady eddie players who won't necessarily catch the eye but will do all the basics well. He also has a handy knack of popping up with the odd goal from outside the box, including one against our friends up the A38 that will go down in Argyle folklore.
You've basically got three League One title winners in your squad now and I think you'll have no problem staying up.
Sounds very promising, thanks @Janners
Yes, cheers @Janners! It's a brave new world where Wycombe and Plymouth are friendly and you know what? I quite like it.
I've never really disliked Plymouth tbh, I like it down around there.
I always quite liked Plymouth and have a couple of friends who support them, it was very much the delightful Derek Adams who poisoned the well
