little bit of a crossover between his career at Crewe and Harry Davis', i wonder if that will have any effect? I doubt it will as Davis was in the youth team for most of O'Connor's time at Crewe, but I suppose it is worth considering

Interesting, I wonder if this all boils down to wheather it’s a case of a manager has to ....

1 Persuade the player

2 Persuade his agent

If it’s the first one MJ may have a sporting chance if it’s the 2nd then the Gimps would have the upper hand considering their recently accrued “wealth”.

My view looking at the last couple of seasons I’ve possibly seen half a dozen players worth really  stretching the budget for (though they’d never sign for us) Berry, Kee, Collins etc.. but O’Connor does not fall into this bracket.

I also wonder if this is the season when the Gimps spend big to try and secure automatic?

How much will it cost to get the ball down I wonder 😉

Quoted from Meza
He's crap or was when he was on loan at the imps many seasons ago but he might have improved since then.


He was quality in his short time at SB.

If we could get 30+ games a season out of him for 2 years, he'd be a cracking signing, top midfielder for this level. Imagine having him in our squad instead of a Berrett. With him living so close to Lincoln, I think they'd be daft not to sign him and I'm sure both parties would want it to happen.

Quoted from Impish2


O'Connor stating that he was offered a 40% pay cut then a 25% pay cut to stay. Still think he would be on a decent whack but he is a decent player. It's whether he is worth the risk and looks like both clubs think he might be. Does live local to Lincoln so that's in our favour.


so relatively local to Grimsby then?

I'd personally rather have a decent player on a reasonable wage available for 46 games of the season rather than risking signing a good but expensive player in the hope they could manage 30-odd. Especially when you consider we've already got a boatload of midfielders signed up or offered contracts.

I wouldn't want to break the bank for somebody just to see him keep Clifton out of the team, either.
