Both being mentioned on Twitter tonight (I know, I know).

Scapuzzi is an attacking midfielder / striker at Man City & Wordsworth is a winger at Colchester.

Both young, Scapuzzi doesn't seem to have had too much of career & Wordsworth is a free kick specialist with 30 + goals in 170 odd appearances.

Loan

Although that's from Twitter. I've been told nothing about any of these three.

Wow I know someone that actually knows Anthony Wordsworth, I'll call him tomorrow and see if he can find out if this is true. Then I can be an ITK and get loads of abuse if he doesn't sign.

I've seen him a few times and he's certainly a decent player. Nice signing if true.

Scapuzzi was playing for Man City in their 4-0 win over Limerick tonight.

Wordsworth is very highly rated.

Sign all 3 of them.

In particular the Italian, he has a good name.

That would be awesome. Even though McCormack is more proven, watching the pace Posh played at times last season I think I would rather him than McCormack.

Roma wanted Scapuzzi in January. Must be good. Apparently he is joining us for 300,000. Sounds very cheap if true. Probably isn't though because it's twitter talk.

I was just looking at the sky, thinking about us signing Wordsworth either permanently or temporarily. You could say 'I wondered loanly at the clouds'.

Isn't Wordsworth someone that's been mentioned before? The sort of signing that would make me feel a little more optimistic about the coming season though.

Wordsworth is a LM isn't he? Would be a very good signing imo.

I watched Carroll play for Spurs last Tuesday against the Red Bulls in New York. He looks like he might be a player one day, but I don't think he is close to Williams yet.

Looked very young and small but got lots of the ball, uses it well and fights hard. He would be a fans favourite if he could stand up to the physical demands of the Championship. Jury is out on that at the moment, but it would be a positive loan signing.

On a side note, I was very unimpressed by Harry Kane. Andros Townsend looks a good player though - ready now, and not not a 'potential' from what I saw. Sorry, I know this thread is about two other blokes!

plays LM but not a winger, not particularly quick. has played a fair bit in CM too which colchester fans think is his best position. creative.

I feel sorry for the fat kid at school that no one liked. At least they knew where they went south. With some of the shite thats spouted on here being the worst takes some effort. So well done

He always looks class on the football league show. Always scoring loads. Seems strange no one has taken the plunge before. Then again Jarvis didn't leave the Gills for so,e time and not through loyalty really.

If we signed Wordsworth it would save on floodlighting costs as he would almost certainly bring his owner Jamie along

I used to think it a bit harsh that you got so much abuse.

Reading sentences like that I can understand why. How are you possibly qualified to judge which of these players will do a good job for the side and which wont?

My mate* is going to speak to Anthony to see if this is true - he's under the impression that Anthony is in the last year of his deal at Colchester but he didnt know if he'd recently signed a new one. He'd be a perfect replacement for Ambrose as a set piece taker and left sided midfielder. Fans would love this guy IMO.

* by mate I mean the account manager at our printers.

Interestingly if these come through then the ITK score for this preseason will be:

SW16Girl 1 (Ward)
CG 1 (Baxter)
Lots of people T minus 1 week (McCormack)
Cawley 1 (Wilbraham)
Twitter 2 :eek:

The only ITK i've ever had, was Emmerson Boyce joining and leaving Palace, and how much he loved it here.

Wordsworth looks interesting with plenty of games under his belt and 1 goal every 4.7 games. At 23 he fits Dougie's/CPFC2010's criteria of players that are approaching their peak age. Left winger would be a pleasant curiosity too!

06-08-2012, 10:36 AM
Well he is definitely left-footed, at least in the video of him taking a free-kick on youtube :D

To be honest SW16Girl got her info from the Portsmouth forum i think :p

The times I've seen Wordsworth play he's not really looked like a winger, more like Ambrose or....dare I say it...a left sided David Beckham.

I think this is the signing CG is getting excited about.

Just need to agree a fee with Colchester before someone gazumps us.

Why are account managers so slow Ralph? :)

Nice to see we are link to a set piece maker.

We certainly don't have any at the moment (Garvan is just so so, Jedi is not very good, and the only two other I could think of would be Williams and Baxter, if he signs).

TO CLARIFY

My contact believes Anthony is out of contract next summer.

He doesnt know if Anthony has signed a new contract in the last few months with Colchester though.

He does know clubs have enquired about him, one was Charlton within the last 12 months - my contact also thought Sheff Wednesday were interested in him but nothing as yet has materialised.

Anthony is from London, they know each others families.

His hunch is that Anthony will leave either this summer or January.

He hasnt heard back from Anthony or his family but will call me back once he does!

Just tell him to tell Anthony to call Harry Monk back, I'm sure he has the number.

Wordsworth will be off at some point as he isnt going to sign a new contract with Colchester. If what im lead to believe is right we did make a very cheeky bid for him which hasnt gone down to well with the col u board so will have to see what happens
