We need a striker its clear to see but seriously after the success with omar bogle and that clearly is a blueprint why haven't we signed a striker lower down non league who scores reguarly and wants a crack at full time football.

We sold omar for a million quid and it works , clubs like peterborough do it often they take a chance on non league players , yes fees are more likely required but its a gamble that can pay off , i mean its worked for us before so why has it not been used again ?

I find it so frustrating we looking around the bargain basement to save a few quid when if we lifted our expectation and ambition we could instead be saving money we could also be making it down the long haul , you know john its called investment

Its like the club has just accepted theres no point looking in non league as the player wont come and we dont want to spend owt anyway .

Omar bogle should have been our blueprint for getting young talent in year on year and selling them on but instead its more like thankyou very much that will do us , yes for every few bogle you might get a donkey but lets be honest were quite used that anyway so why not at least try.

This is just another reason which confirms we need new input new direction and new ambition which i don't think will come in the near future so in reality its looking like its bargain basement for the forseeable future.

I think it's lack of knowledge in non league maybe?  He Cowleys signed a few from non league and they are doing pretty well.

Completely agree, why do we keep signing players who although they are professional/full time do not appear to be very good really. The amount of players that are changing from one club to another every season just because managers/clubs will not take a punt on a young up amateur.

Don’t we have something similar with young rose but you have to start having faith him in and give him some game time 5 minute cameos are of little use. I use the old statement if there good enough there old enough

As Davec and I said recently it's also worth looking in Scotland, there are some lads there scoring every week.

I think to some extent, it has been done. Certainly Bignot signed a few, two of which looked like good players. Just a shame he only focused on a players "technical ability" and not their attitude as well.

We've also signed Cardwell, Rose and Vernam who could all go for money if they start to find the back of the net.

I'm sure MJ is smart enough to know that there are some gems in the levels below us and will be working on identifying them. It's not surprising that his knowledge of the national league is lacking when he has always worked above that level and in another country immediately prior to being here.

That's the trouble when you sign players that from the outside look like they are playing way below their level. Even looking at Bogle, yes he was a beast physically but mentally was he a hundred percent? Not for me, he was rough around the edges and needed a lot of coaching even to play at National league level. He appeared to sulk, made crazy decisions (daft flicks), when he missed a chance his head visibly dropped. He became a goal machine but he still had that self doubt in him and I believe it's still there, he won't progress from where he is now.

You need to look at the whole package, if a player ticks all the boxes and if your scouting network is up to scratch and you have as well a rounded picture of the player then it's likely better clubs than ourselves (of which there are now a great many - thanks John) will swoop first.

I still have really high hopes Cardwell will come good he looks to have something about him and I dont know what his injury is but hoping we get him back sooner rather than later?
