Mansfield fans seem generally upset he's leaving though they predict he'll end up at the Gimps

Quoted from ginnywings


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..............


I understand what you're saying Ginny but the other factor in play here is Evans. It could be that they have had a falling out, not Evans type of player, it could be that green told them a while ago he was intending to leave and so he is listed as released. I know it would be another one from Mansfield but personally if they are a decent player and fit into our managers way of thinking and do a good job for us then I have no problem with that and wouldn't care where in the table their previous club had finished.

Yes, fully accept that and i've said there are all sorts of reasons players leave clubs and Green may well do a cracking job for someone, possibly even us.

To explain my thinking a bit more- Mansfield stormed out of the Conference with Matt Green banging goals in left right and centre, so much so that Birmingham signed him. He bombed there and went back to Mansfield where he has been steady rather than spectacular; 20 odd goals in two seasons.

Mansfield have not progressed much since they came back into the league and their board have clearly had enough, so have appointed a manager with a proven track record in Evans. He has decided that Clements, Yussuf and Green are surplus to requirements and 2 of those have already ended up here. So i ask myself if these are the type of players that will get you out of this league?

However, if we did go on to actually sign Green, then fair enough, i'll be right behind him and the others.

For every Michael Leary (released by Barnet) there's a Carl Magnay (released by Gateshead).*

Jamie's Ness released from the scunts. Played in Slades Leyton Orient side when they reached the league one play off final a few years back.

David Mirfin also released from the Scunts, very experienced centre half and rated highly by them lot.

Scott Wisemen also released, experienced right back who also will want to stay local I imagiane.

Anyon also released from them, goal keeper. Had 200+ football league appearances.

Don't know if they are any good but worth a look.
