  • pcassist changed the title to Nicky Adams

Can't say I've heard of him, but ticks the "experienced midfielder" box that we need..

 

Welcome to the madhouse.  I'll be amazed if he lasts the full contract.

You haven't heard of him? Really?

 

Not sure how he fits into our recruitment "strategy" but appears on paper to be a good signing - should add a bit of nous to our midfield (not hard) and hopefully help us keep the ball a bit better. Northampton captain, and played double digit number of games - wonder why they wanted rid?

His name was banded around as a potential great signing when Bury were going bust and got rid of all their top earners. I was in that bracket. 
At 34 now it doesn’t fit in with the AL philosophy, and the general crap treatment experienced pros have received under his ownership would be a concern. 
if his legs haven’t gone, it’s a good signing.

Afraid not.  My knowledge of Rochdale, Bury, Crawley, Rotherham and Northampton players isn't what it should be..

Whenever I've seen him he looked a very quick player who could put a good cross in. Might gave slowed a little, but i think he will do well here.

Nicky Adams and Bobby Grant would have been amazing signings in 2013. 


 

Hopefully we can bring in Ryan Lowe for David Perkins next

Probably could've said this about Peter Clarke and McCann too...

Northampton fans seem to be gutted he's gone, but they're saying he no longer fits in because they don't play with wingers.

Still find it surprising that any player with credibility would join us on a permanent deal.  
 

He’s either desperate, or we pay relatively well. Which considering what they stumped up for Wheater isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.

To make way for Missilou?

Maybe the philosophy is a changing...

 

Even Gary O’Donoghue can see we are crying our for some experience here and there.

 

Your giving them too much credit to say their is  philosophy their isn't one or a strategy it's just pot luck

 

That said I think this will be a good signing until he inevitably falls out with hierarchy.

There are other factors, such as distance from home to place of work, which come into play. Wheater signed us partly because he didn’t have to move house.

Might get interesting when he stands up to Al, Mo or BO...

He could do all of us a service and lay all three out

Might be our best ever signing on that alone

Nicky, Welcome to Latics, hope you can bring some settled play to our midfield and good luck for tomorrow. Look forward to seeing you on IFollow until we can get back in the ground!
