January Signings

Recommended Posts

You have been here two minutes and already appointed yourself spokesman. Well done, can you score goals too? 

 

He's right though - you have mistaken 'realism' for 'lack of ambition'.  Accepting that we are at our level based on the shape the club is currently in does not mean that we don't aspire to greater things or that greater things are not achievable. 

 

But as usual you have interpreted this in a way which allows you to keep writing frictional posts.  Deliberately perhaps as this is obviously how you like things to be.

If were  in good enough shape to reach the play offs last season we certainly are this as it is very open, you only have to see the results between top and bottom clubs to realise that. (Covered on another thread)

Please tell me.Who is a realistic target?Name some names.

Any player who is on less money now than we could offer would be a starting point.

Not knocking the name of Waterfall, good player - just on more money than I think we could offer.

Id be suprised to see him signed unless we chucked money we can't afford at it.

Oh and names. Calum Chettle and Kenny Strickland, both outstanding performers in the glue sniff leagues

You mention Calum Chettle. Ilkeston must have some right talent, Che Adams to Sheffield Utd, Kane Richards to Chester, Ashley Hunter to Fleetwood and Calum Chettle being touted as a potential signing for a few clubs. All young lads under the age of 20 I think

Ilkeston Town are a full time outfit.

They have an acadamy set up there and those players are the ones that play for the first team. They take lads released from football league clubs around the ages of 17-21 to develop them as players with a bit of education thrown in too ai think.

The money they make selling players keeps the acadamy going.

Isn't that something similar to what we are looking at doing with Calderdale College ?

We seem to have had several false starts and failed attempts so far and lost a few years whilst having players that we suggested were going to make it, but for reason or reasons have not produced anything of note . From Messer to Marie our development of young talent leaves much to be desired .

Perhaps we just end up with the arse end of what's left ?

there's another way to view geographic competition WB, i was talking to a lincoln fan before the away game last season and he thought we were in a prime position to recruit form yorkshire and lancashire clubs and pointed out that were they were, it wasn't so easy to get players to move there  and if they were looking at loans, the local options were grimsby who are direct competitors and unlikely to help, or boston who are lower in the pyramid. he thought leeds, bradford and huddersfield were cracking neighbours to have.

Redfearn and Powell should be sympathetic toward us and our Cup game v Bradford should've built a few bridges, but the surplus players from those 3 are not really too impressive . Despite Lincolns argument of no feeder Clubs, that should allow them access to better kids at a younger age

I may have missed something but what have Leeds Huddersfield or Bradford produced of late that we would covet. or want to borrow.

Messer went to Salford then not sure what happened. And Marie isn't one of our own
