Matt green would be a good shout for me. 13 goals last season in a team playing a style of play not his style under evans. Probably why the managers released him. Clements came from the stags and to me has been a good signing for us.  Green also has similar qualities to reddy also - strong and fast

I know it's no way to judge a player and there are myriad reasons why a player gets released but it doesn't feel right to be coveting a player let go by Mansfield. I think we can do better.

Scunny signed the released Josh Morris, didn't go too badly did it?


Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

I have no idea who Josh Morris is and what his past history is.

Just a transfer of interest.  Ricky Miller is still under contract at Dover.  He has not joined Peterborough yet.  The Posh have alread turned down a bid of £250K for him from another unnamed Division 1 club.  (Could even have been Scunny).

He was released by Bradford and signed by Scunny on a free.

Bradford a bit different to Mansfield. Just had a look and he is a midfielder who started life at Blackburn, so a bit of a different back story. Some released players do go on to make a name for themselves elsewhere but plenty of others don't. Green has mostly been successful in the conference and a bit in League 2. Maybe he would be a good signing, maybe not, but my point was that taking players released by Mansfield doesn't really get the juices flowing does it? Not for me anyway.

How do you know Yussuf's any good? He looked good in his first two games, was garbage against Exeter and then against Luton and Crewe and has never been seen again.

We've taken Yussuf and Clements, probably on the say so of Mickey Moore and neither has set the world on fire yet. Clements may well be a decent signing but most Mansfield fans were not that bothered at his departure. If we then get Green from them, what does that say about our ambition to have three players from a club that finished about the same as us and have been drifting along in League 2 since they got back in the league.

Green may be different, he may not, but..............
