Two Out, One in   Message 47388Wed, 12 September 2018 09:45  Go to next message

Louis out (promotion at work).

Jeacock out (Wasn't playing so has joined Thatcham)

Atkinson in from Basingstoke. I note that we were given the chance to sign him. Presumably another player being touted about by an agent.

I said he would be gone by Christmas so I was right on that score. He has said before that he is not happy unless he is playing which is fair enough. Warming the bench whilst Perry came straight back in on Saturday did make me review the predicted departure date but even I didn't reckon it would be this early. Oh well. Make sure that door is well oiled!

Given the Club's record on the stability of the playing squad it would be easy to be cynical.

But these moves make sense. We wouldn't have known 5 weeks ago that Perry was going to become available, while it's become clear that Jeacock was not going to be a regular starter.

I'm a little surprised though that there's been no mention of Enver-Marum.

And the manager is quite right in saying that the squad does need some more trimming. We have a lot of players at the moment and a fair number are not getting much game-time, so it would be best for all concerned if the squad is settled down and the players know where they stand.

Just realised, this means all four of our marquee signings from the announcement in May have gone (Pidgeley, Salmon, Jeacock and Louis). I do wonder whether the club gets much interest in player sponsorship with a revolving door this fast.

Those 'marquee' signings, I never quite know where that term comes from! I thought a marquee was a big tent, but however, were all announced around the time of the Club's new season ticket offer!!

Now I'm a cynical old s**, but that just shouts out spin to me, and I think most others.

Bearing in mind the recent seasons turn over of players, I fully understand why player sponsorship is not taken up!!

Pidge wasn't around, or unavailable, for most, maybe all, of the psf's, reasons for which are now sadly apparent.

Salmon jumped ship after just two days.

Jeacock stayed but was very much on the fringe, for a highly rated 'Marquee' signing

And Louis was, as most expected, a short term fix, as he has been at so many other Clubs in his career, and that didn't work out either.

So maybe there is a problem in the recruiting, vetting and commitment department for future players!

I expect we will be told it's all down to budget!!, but it can't be solely that surely??

That budget would have been helped out with £6000 for winning last nights game and a very good chance of a further £9000 in the next round and then who knows.

We do have a wonderful knack of shooting ourselves in the foot don't we??

I thought things like last night only happened on a Sunday morning!!

Until things are put right on the playing field, the Club will continue to just rumble along, despite the great work being done behind the scenes to keep us afloat!

Answers on how to put it right on a postcard please.

Clearly Enver-Marum has gone after being played out of position / lack of effort after securing a deal.

Any ideas on Cullen?

I'm very much hoping that Callum hasn't been hit by the revolving door on his way out. A good young player with plenty of potential.

Both the Connors are listed in the Basingstoke programme for tomorrow, numbers 9 & 10. Perry at 12

What's on the programme doesn't always mean anything though!!

Think Cullen has been on his hols. Not sure when he's back.
Enver-Marum is about as likely to return as Vic Searle.

Can I just point out that the team in away programmes is just an educated guess by the fixtures secretary and is in no way an official squad for the match.

Phil Martin, Fixtures secretary.

So supporters have to wait until just before kick off to find out what team we are putting out, as usual??
