That's positive news. Two new midfielders so far. Hopefully we will see more creative football now and less head tennis and hoof ball. Things are looking good in 2014, but as NW stated we need to keep focussed and determined to win matches.

This has the potential to be a very smart signing for City in my opinion (assuming the price and was right). Good solid experienced league 2 midfielder who also has leadership qualities. certainly strengthens the team in the centre of the park alongside Montrose.

Looks a good signing but will reserve judgment until I see how he fits in. I'm pleased NW has addressed the main area of weakness early in the transfer window with Reed and Penn and hopefully we will see another experienced L2 quality centre half and left back coming in (preferably permanent rather than on loan) and if so we will be in good shape to progress away from the drop zone.

Will be interesting to see who NW ships out as I'm sure he will want to offload a few if only on loan somewhere.

Well done also to the McGills for backing the manager with these recruits.

Excellent signing - NW is slowly building a squad with good foundations that should be able to compete well next season and end this season in a more comfortable position. Together with Adam Reed our midfield will be much stronger. Now we need some more defensive cover and to offload / loan some of our fringe squad players. Credit to Jason and the board for keeping the faith after a difficult period and investing in the team and supporting NW. I'm confident Nigel WILL deliver after the massive rebuilding of the team.

So 2014 has started very brightly with renewed hope. Northmpton will be a very tough test on Saturday - this match should not be under estimated and a draw can be considered a good result. This is the business time of the season when teams start their survival processes and the over achievers start to fall. For sure our first half was disappointing and for sure in many games we did not get the rub of the green but now we are stronger and better - all bodes well for the secondhalf of the season! Keep the faith! In NW we trust!

Personally, i think we need a good experienced centre back, a left back, one more centre mid, another striker and possibly some cover at right back, and a decent keeper who can keep pressure on ingham.

chris maxwell from fleetwood would be keeper i like the look of, been on loan at cambridge and kept 16 cleansheets in 24 games.

would also like to see platt out on loan, but somewhere better than harrogate town, preferably conference level, clay out on loan/replaced and fyfield replaced

I agree with everyone else two good signings but can't help but feel a bit sorry for Platt who will likely be dropped back to the bench or go out on loan, i know a lot of people have been very judgmental of the young player and some have seen him as a weak link, but i really see a good quality player and one for the future, i feel he has grown over the last couple of games and a long with an improved team performance he has contributed well to our recent upturn in form.
The only way to learn is to get out there and prove it on the pitch, good luck to the lad i hope he see's this as NW strengthening the squad and not a reflection on his ability.

I am just pleased that City have sensibly recruited a proven mid-field player instead of gambling on another untried youngster. Both Platt and Whitehouse are promising young lads who could have a bright future in the game. But City badly needed an experienced player in midfield, Penn and the return of Reed will considerably strengthen that department. Perhaps another Goalkeeper, Centre Back and Striker can be picked up in the January sales, then we would be really cooking on gas!

I agree with johnno65 in that I think Tom Platt is one for the future and one we should nurture as I think there is a good player in there. I thought he was committed and fought well for the ball on Saturday. I agree we need some creativity / experience in the middle of the park in terms of someone who can deliver a killer ball and / or arrive in the opposition box late and weigh in with some goals, but while Tom is picked to play let's support him. If he has to go out on loan then make it a good one for him where he can continue to develop and learn his trade.

I agree entirely with the comments above re: Tom Platt. He's a young professional learning his trade with very little support in terms of an experienced mentor to take him under his wing. He is probably playing under specific restricted orders based upon his current capabilities. Having been thrown in at the deep end last season and despite the odd mistake (we all make them) I would say the last couple of matches show a more adventurous player with some confidence returning. I'm happy to support a local lad. Good luck to him.

I think Platt has done okay in the last couple of games considering that he had not been playing for a while. Last season he had more impact but he'd been playing every week for Harrogate Town immediately beforehand.
It never ceases to amaze me how some 'fans' rush to criticise their own players because they don't play like Paul Scholes within half an hour of starting a run in the team. I think it's very likely that Platt will now lose his place and maybe a loan would be the best option for him, though he's definitely one we should hang on to in the long term.

I really hope Tom Platt develops into a good player for York City as it's always great to see local lads come through the ranks. I also agree that he would have benefitted from playing alongside an experienced central midfield player but I firmly believe the best thing both for him and York City is to go out on loan at a decent Conference side to get more playing time and continue his development as I do think he has potential.

I certainly don't expect him to be playing like a top, experienced pro at such a young age hence why I feel a loan deal would suit him as he needs a consistent run of games IMO.

However, in our current position I believe we need better quality and more experience in central midfield with better creativity allied to a more dynamic approach which hopefully both Reed and Penn will help provide. We simply don't have the luxury to be carrying players at the moment.

From where I've been watching, Platt has been virtually anonymous in the last two games and whilst I can't fault his effort we need more from central midfield. I appreciate that he may be simply acting out instructions from the management but if he has then he needs to be given better instructions.

Hope he hasn't got feet of clay.
I'll certainly support the guy as he settles in and won't expect miracles but likewise won't go overboard until I see the evidence of his contribution. (Puri and the aforementioned have so far hardly proved worth their 2 year contracts)
That said, if Penn comes with a captain's pedigree and without a disruptive attitude he would seem to be a positive acquisition.
We know what Reed can do but he has only signed until the end of the season. Does that show a lack of commitment on either side? Or is he on loan? Can anyone clarify?
Regarding Platt - potentially a good player in the making but far from the finished article. Young players tend to have up and down periods and Platt has lately shown signs that he may be moving into an improving state but cannot be expected to dominate at this stage of his development.
Nevertheless, I've a feeling that he will get game time as I cannot imagine Montrose without a further ban.
All in all we seem to be starting the transfer window on a positive note but Saturday will be another crucial indicator.

As we will be losing Lewis to suspension before very long,these two signings need to get match-fit quite quickly. And then,of course, Lewis may struggle to reclaim his place.One of our best away performances was at Torquay, where Clay played alongside Whitehouse,and provided the platform, once they had settled,for our 3 v 0 win.
The squad already looks better balanced especially as a resurgent Coulson can play as a winger or down the middle.
BTW, Best wishes to Danny Parslow for a full recovery from his operation. What a loss to the squad he is, as he could cover at full back on both sides,as well as centre back and holding midfielder. Our best player at Plymouth at RB; at Gillingham as LB; in front of the back four in the crucial last few games,and many times at CB this season. Good Luck Danny.

Seems a while since we offered two and a half year deals. Whilst it obviously comes with risk of long term injury, simply not working out etc, it does hopefully signal a little more long term thinking from the club. I cannot help thinking that the short term mentality which has been evident since the Jan transfer window of our final conference season is something that we need to leave behind. I welcome the return of the use of loan system to plug short term gaps rather than a default strategy. Whilst I appreciate the financial challenges for a club like ours it surely does need more long term thinking if we are to properly re-establish ourselves in the Football League?

And why do we need another striker? Are we struggling to score?

very good to see the experience midfielder we have all wanted being brought in, and a player with good experience of this league, not a higher leage player winding his career down and i hope penn has a big hunger to drive what is still quite a young team bar defence (inc ingham).

good to see that 3 of the 4 signings so far are permanent deals as well, with lowe and penn on longish term deals. granted, reed is only 6 months but burton have apparently released him and i'd like to think that, if he plays, he won't make the mistake of walking away from 90 minutes a week and a group of fans who appreciate his efforts a second time.

next stop, top half. lets be safe by march- after two home wins over teams in the top half, its not impossible- and then see what the last 7/8 games could hold!

2014 is the year of the minstermen!
