Do you sit in Block C by any chance 28?

Enjoying the debate, but from my biased stance, are you not proving my point, apart from Ross (who still has a lot to learn) everyone of those you list was whilst in L2. Im talking about being better when recruiting for league 1,

I cant think of any that raise the standard above what we brought into this league and none have equalled in quality those we have lost in the last 2 seasons.

As for Jordan, scandalous that he is going on a free. Not as if the timeline of his contract and Bosman is a secret. Appreciate he will give 100%, but he also needs to look after his own interests and not get injured when moving on. Cant have been fun as a senior player watching what weve brought in IMO.

And all those players have/will play at a higher level.
Nothing stopping the lads we have signed also coming good. Id say the lads from Non League have played better than those with higher level academy experience etc. Id take colby and Dion over ozzy and benny any day of the week.

Id say better at recruiting is beating championship clubs for a Premier League striker.
Id say better at recruiting for signing a player who would be 800 a month better off in National League.
Id say better off recruiting for signing Pritchard, who had a very, very tough decision at his age and his point of career where to go, especially with the Bolton fiasco.

I wouldnt say its scandalous Clicker is leaving on a free.
He wont sign a new contract. Completely different scenario to Crooks/Windass.
We transfer listed him in the summer.
No clubs came in for him for the price we wanted.
No clubs in Jan want to start a bidding war and let other teams know of interest, theyd rather convince him when free agent with wages facilities etc than pay over the odds for an extra 6 months.
Losing him for 50k in Jan, is it really worth it for that amount? No, him keeping us up would be worth much more than that.

Re: Resurrect the fight for survival thread

Stanley Josh is right! How is it scandulous if Clarky leaves on a free? considering no one came in for him when he was listed? thats the only way it can go now, myself i'm glad no-one did. rather have the lad until season end.

Re: Resurrect the fight for survival thread

Blockhead C is simply wrong! True Stanley supporters have faith in Andy, John and Jimmy. They have all worked miracles in order to get Stanley where we are now! ........ in League One and in good financial order. I have even given in and registered on Twitter to express my support to Andy!
ON STANLEY ON
KEEP THE FAITH

Bit of a strange question but the truth is I don't know !
In the main I sit near to the dressing rooms and have made some good acquaintances over the years.
Also sat a few times over the other side.
Never stood up !
As an alien fan from the better side of the Pennines what this Block C nonsense ?

There was loads of interest just not at the fee being demanded.
Im really pleased to see the positive comments from real fans about Jordan.
He will be on it until the last kick of the last match. He doesn't know any different.

Very happy to disagree on most points and leave it there.

Re: Resurrect the fight for survival thread

I get where Simpson is coming from .... I think.
Maybe he's referring to the fact his contract has been allowed to run down without an offer on the table to persuade him otherwise.
Back to the repetitive subject. Budget.

Re: Resurrect the fight for survival thread

[QUOTE=monkey hanger;1238175][QUOTE=Twenty Eight;1238173 The lad from Wolves was in great demand from other cubs.

thats the usual football speak though. might be correct, but when was the last time a signing hasn,t been made where the words of beating plenty of others off to sign a player has not been used. goes with the ones with potential or for the future.[/QUOTE]

It was common knowledge the interest in him. Thats why it took so long to get the deal over the line.

He might well have had his last kick for Stanley only a matter of time now before season is suspended may never be restarted.

But, at least when it does, there will still be a Stanley

Re: Resurrect the fight for survival thread

I'd say we are in league 1 until further notice as nobody can predict when this season will end and the next begin uncharted territory.

Players being out of contract is a concern if season is extended.
