.....Neither did the previous managers......

 

....this assumes they were allowed to pick him? He was poorly, then shipped out on loan, then banished to the youths.....

Byrne just wanted to play as well, how come he wasn't afforded the luxury of a second chance?

 

Taken from the post below, "I guess what I can’t believe is that all of; Byrne; Gerrard; Davies; Fane & Duffus are ALL to blame 100% ( that’s not saying some of them might be)."

It's not difficult to come across "really well" in an interview. If we really do have aspirations of getting out of this league (the right way), we should be looking for someone with a bit more about them....

I come to the same conclusion.... but @mikejh45, @kowenicki & @mcfluff1985 are happy with Abdallah’s decision to banish the boy to train with the youths because of his tweeting history.... bad egg or sh1t at football (no idea how anyone would know - given his lack of opportunity / didn’t he suffer an illness after originally joined us?) apparently.... & to hell with the fact we have no strikers available.

Are you a spin doctor...….where did I say I was happy?....all I've said at any point is you, like me, have no idea what has gone on in the past between AL and/or SC, past and present managers, CD and his agent. There are lots of scenarios that may or may not have happened but you keep stating one and that one may or may not have happened. This meeting may have happened and it didn't work...….we simply don't know.

But as usual, if blame has to be apportioned by yourself, it ultimately falls at AL's door.

I’m a little bit baffled as to why he is not being utilised or even an update on him from the club, especially as we have limited attacking options. I appreciate the Irish league isn’t at the same level as league two but he appeared to do quite well over there, surely could be at least on the bench instead of a youth team player?

Clearly as some are saying he will never wear a latics shirt again. Club must have their reasons as I agree he is worth at least a place on the bench in our current situation.

On the evidence of what is he worth a place on the bench?

Having a good goalscoring record in Ireland means nothing......we signed the League of Ireland's Player of the Year last season and he was, to be kind, not very good.

Maybe the coaching staff have looked at him and decided otherwise.

McEleney was the “best player in the Irish league”

You beat me to it.  Just wondering what the equivalent French league level is to the Irish league?  🤔

Didn't we only name 6 subs last time out?

If we play him, he can’t play for anyone else and therefore can’t be moved on.

Indeed the Irish don't run to the UEFA calendar. His loan technically spanned 2 seasons due to the Irish running a calendar year season. 

 

If he plays for us he can't play for anyone else until June. But if he's still here in February I think we might as well play him, as I don't think he can play for anyone after then anyway. Bit like how we signed Lockwood from Guiseley as Bury let him leave too late so Guiseley was as high as he could play. 

 

Duffus could play for Stockport etc I think under the same rules.

Fair enough. That makes a lot of sense. If Wild plays him, he effectively ties Duffus to the club for the rest of the season. Given that Wild won’t be the full time manager, that’s a fair approach. 

 

Out of interest, what did he say on Twitter? I missed that one.

I hope it is. AL will inevitably sack him & then the guy is without a job. I’d like to see Wild and a few more like him working for our club for years to come
