Be up for both but more MCcan because l like Azankpo and or Wilson for some reason.

 

Both McCann and Clarke seem to be decent players from what I remember, but I'm not sure either are really needed.  Our central midfield isn't really a problem area so we probably wouldn't be putting McCann in his strongest position, left back is a maybe I suppose.

 

Clarke sadly is not the type of player we need, he's a good attacking player but not one to lead the line.  He could play in any of our current 4 attacking roles but we've got plenty of players for those already.

Would like to see us looking at a player like Cheltenham's Broom. For a mid, he was the best forward on the pitch. Addai also excellent.

More of a sweeper isn’t he ? Could he handle the step up ? (We will always be a step up from fucking Cheltenham)

Think will be both be playing at an higher level next season with or without Cheltenham IMO.

How Addai  played 5 years in non league at a low level without anyone spotting him except Cheltenham is a mystery?

Maybe they did - plenty of players down there who have other priorities.

My guess is many ruled him out on lack of height, maybe why he was released by Spurs as a kid.

Seen it many times from others in the game. In fact when I told one manager a striker I liked in non league was 5ft 6ins he replied "That won't do"..the striker went on to be a prolific goal scorer in the football league.

I've recommended a big young centre forward to the club on loan in January. Very similar to Surridge, don't expect it to happen though somehow.

I hope this comes to fruition . 

to state the ****ing obvious, we need a real striker more than any other position.

 

i try to remain positive, but last night’s game made me worry about our current predicament more than any other game this season.

As you possibly have some influence at OAFC, could you also recommend players to be taken out of the club.

Hopefully they could all fit on one bus.

I honestly think this league is so shit that with one, preferably, two proper forwards/strikers we could get promoted this season.

 

The defence and midfield could do a good enough job with some quality ahead of them, especially if Egert stays fit and Morais stays.

 

If he could spend £11k a week on Menig why can't he spend on one striker who'd be guaranteed to rip this league up? Or two at £5.5k a week? 

 

Not only would it give us a chance of going up but people would pay to see a goalscorer so crowds would probably increase to pay for some or all of the cost.

And you can then sell a goalscorer for a lot more than a George Edmundson.

They just seem thick as fuck AL and ML don't they?

I wonder if free agent Gary Hooper would come here in a short term Queensy contract?

Didn't you previously recommend Beesley at Salford who has now gone out to Solihull on loan?

Contracts handed to Sefil, Vera, Kokos, Gonzales who are absolutely nowhere near the first team squad now kinda of proves that. Im 100% implying that AL is laundering money through these players/agents and therefore imagine wages for those 4 alone are earning would cover your 11k.

 

Amazing that their "plan" of investing in foreign potential has resulted in us having the worst squad in years, without so much as a sniff from any club to buy any of their signings!

I wonder why he's a free agent. Odd.

Edmundson went on loan to non league and look where he finished. Don't write Beesley off.

Hey Urko - the agency will 'pay' you £4k per week if you sign for us for a season, whether you play or not.  However, you will only actually get paid £2k, the other £2k will stay with the agency.

 

Something along those lines.  

 

I suppose it could via a number of other ways.

 

*N.B - this is not fact...

I’ve wondered this too when this accusation has been thrown around. I’m no currency or banking expert but what if salaries were paid electronically from offshore, the player draws it in the UK and pays some back to the person he’s revived the salary from? 


So player gets £10K a week salary, pays £8K back and therefore gets £2K and A N Other person gets the £8K. Don’t know if that would work, don’t know why it would need to be done with the £ being relatively weak at the moment, no idea if it’s feasible🤷‍♂️😂
