I see Jolley has signed for forest green from Newport on loan. Good signing for them and surely the type of player we should have looked to have signed on loan, nothing against the Barnsley lad who scored a great goal v kiddy, but he is no where near match fit and unproven, whereas Jolley would have been a great asset to town. Will be happy if he scores against Barnet  tommorrow though.

Whisper it quietly but wouldn't it be nice to have a manager who shows a bit of intent and ambition when it comes to doing business in the transfer market...?

pace and can score goals would have been perfect, it really pisses me off when players who are proven in this league and can do what we have been crying out for just seem to always pass us by.

Maybe our club tried to sign him but he decided that as Forest Green was only a few miles from Newport he would not need to up sticks and move half way across the country.

I imagine the location and the fact that they've got megabucks played a part. Newport to forest green is not that far, Newport to Blundell park is flipping miles especially if you've a family.

Newport to Nailsea is a short 30 mile commute. Only a little bit further than Scunny for us and not as far as Lincoln. Pretty obvious why it was easy for FGR to sign Jolley on loan and an indication as to why loan signings have often passed between ourselves and Scunny.

I suppose that other nearby-ish League clubs from who we might expect to be able to sign loanees are probably Hull, Donny, Rotherham and the Sheffield clubs. Barnsley too, of course.

A pity in a way that Hull are now in the Premiershite. If they were a division or two lower, they might not worry too much about sending younger players here to get some game time. The fact that the Allams own North Ferriby United is probably of relevance as well.

Agreed, seems like we are deaf regarding what is happening in our circle of transfer /loan activity, not blaming Hurst so much  as he has only one pair of ears,(last time I looked)  how about Doig and Moore listening out for him now and again

Or has a better budget with which to attract players?
