    Well mick that will be the old chesnut of someone says they will come then their agent will find another club for them who wants to pay more, nothing new there but of course the owner nowadays does not put any money in so that will make a difference too.

    Shame he got injured just as he was starting to to look useful, that’s the last two Scottish imports that have failed so think that should tell us something.

    Jai is obviously going to be first choice now and frees up cash for the squad rebuild, thanks for your effort Ross hope you do well back home.

    I think that’s every one of last summer’s signings now gone. Says a lot about last summer.

    ‘the old chesnut of someone says they will come then their agent will find another club for them who wants to pay more’. In that respect, very much like an estate agent IA. Are there any out there who can sell the club for us?

    Don’t know how old the info was, or how accurate, but I read somewhere yesterday that the average player wage in the National is £700 a week. Is that likely to be roughly what our average players are on with maybe a few on £1k?

    Let’s hope we sign some average players, they’ll be better than plenty of last seasons who can only dream of being average.

    It sounds as though the financial side of deals offered may just possibly be working if there have been agreements to then be broken thereafter.

    (Wasn’t it Tutte who gazumped us big-style some years ago?)

    If – and I do mean if – it is gazumping – naturally, that’s not too good.
    Worse though, is that players may be saying ‘yes’ and then spending 24 hours doing a bit of due diligence.

    What will they uncover when they spend half an hour researching on the net or phoning up folks they know in the game?

    Ambition, great atmosphere, a club on the up-and-up, happy fans, promotion-seeking, optimism OR something else ?

    Hill may have earned a good reputation amongst players but what is being said out there about the club itself?

    Normally I’d say we must be a club “on the up”, as we can’t sink any lower.

    But we all know we can.

    Some teams in the division that Grantham Town are in are offering £600 !!

    Grantham had some obnoxious owner up until last year, with Carlton Palmer as manager, I wonder if they were throwing money at the club. There’s always clubs in non-league where that happens.

    Obnoxious owner throwing money at the club? Sounds familiar. Can’t think where? 🤔
